Sun Sun Sun

Still wearing my procrastipants. If I keep saying it like that does it make it more forgivable? I'll go with yes.

For now, I can't help but share this. Someone who sits in an unusual spot in my life once wrote these lyrics to me in an email, but didn't tell me what song they were from. That was almost 2 years ago, and I've always loved it and always wondered.
"Well in five years time we could be walking 'round a zoo with the sun shining down over me and you and there'll be love in the bodies of the elephants too and I'll put my hands over your eyes but you'll peek through and there'll be sun sun sun."
Then I heard it on a blog I follow, and the lovely and creative Jessica of Living the Swell Life kindly dug this up for me, and I can't get enough (I can't embed the video, but I promise the whistling in the song alone will put a little sun in your day and pep in your step. Click the link!). I heard the lyrics and suddenly having a melody to put to those words was like chancing upon a beautiful place that you've seen a photo of a million times. Standing real in a context you didn't know was there.

I've got sun sun sun all over my body this week for one last stint of teaching swim lessons, and then it will be time for something else, something more. I'll let you know when I figure out what that is.

    Alice dug that video hardcore. In three days time, she'll be walking round the zoo and she'll see the elephants' bodies too (like this! http://www.sandiegozoo.org/elephantcam/index.html).
