Child’s Play

“Children need the freedom and time to play.  Play is not a luxury.  Play is a necessity.”  Kay Redfield Jamison

My office window overlooks our next door neighbor’s backyard where their grandchildren play enthusiastically most summer days.  I must admit that as I sit slaving away at my computer, I often envy the kids and their carefree play. 

Most of the time I am delightfully amused by their antics.  It’s really a great view and they’re great kids.  Anyway, as I thought about what song I should add to the FACS Soundtrack today, the kids and their joyful play were my inspiration. 

Hope you take some time to play this weekend.  It’s good for the soul! 

Love the words to this song!

There’s a land that I see where the children are free
And I say it ain’t far to this land from where we are
Take my hand, come with me, where the children are free
Come with me, take my hand, and we’ll live

In a land where the river runs free
In a land through the green country
In a land to a shining sea
And you and me are free to be you and me

I see a land bright and clear, and the time’s comin’ near
When we’ll live in this land, you and me, hand in hand
Take my hand, come along, lend your voice to my song
Come along, take my hand, sing a song

For a land where the river runs free
For a land through the green country
For a land to a shining sea
For a land where the horses run free
And you and me are free to be you and me

Every boy in this land grows to be his own man
In this land, every girl grows to be her own woman
Take my hand, come with me where the children are free
Come with me, take my hand, and we’ll run

To a land where the river runs free
To a land through the green country
To a land to a shining sea
To a land where the horses run free
To a land where the children are free
And you and me are free to be
And you and me are free to be
And you and me are free to be you and me

Have a great weekend!
