Jazzin’ Thru Thursday ~ ~ The World Is a Beautiful Place by Lawrence Ferlinghetti featuring Silvia Manco –”Please”

Jazzin' thru Thursday
Jazzin’ thru Thursday

Jazzin’ Thru Thursday features the different shades of Jazz.  It highlights, literary, acoustic and visual snaps of life in and out of time.  It is a beautiful world when there is so much to experience and living in the moment and seeing all of the beauty that resides in our hearts and how it comes out in so many forms of expression.  I just wonder sometimes if we could forget about the challenges and worries for a spell and let our eyes see, hear and feel the intensity of our life in full bloom expressing what we can imagine and to put it down on a canvas in terms of endearment and mystery. I believe that living in the moment is like absolute freedom.  Where people do not judge, classify or worry about anything because we are on a wave that reaches down to our core and touches the heavens.  Mindfulness comes in the simplest ways.  We just need to let things go, and let things come to lift our hearts and dance to the rhythm that is free to take us to the edge of life’s universe.  These artistic expressions do just that for me.  Peace & Love Out!  JBC 😎 ❤

The World Is a Beautiful Place

by Lawrence Ferlinghetti 

The world is a beautiful place
to be born into
if you don’t mind happiness
not always being
so very much fun
if you don’t mind a touch of hell
now and then
just when everything is fine
because even in heaven
they don’t sing
all the time

The world is a beautiful place
to be born into
if you don’t mind some people dying
all the time
or maybe only starving
some of the time
which isn’t half bad
if it isn’t you

Oh the world is a beautiful place
to be born into
if you don’t much mind
a few dead minds
in the higher places
or a bomb or two
now and then
in your upturned faces
or such other improprieties
as our Name Brand society
is prey to
with its men of distinction
and its men of extinction
and its priests
and other patrolmen

and its various segregations
and congressional investigations
and other constipations
that our fool flesh
is heir to

Yes the world is the best place of all
for a lot of such things as
making the fun scene
and making the love scene
and making the sad scene
and singing low songs and having inspirations
and walking around
looking at everything
and smelling flowers
and goosing statues
and even thinking
and kissing people and
making babies and wearing pants
and waving hats and
dancing
and going swimming in rivers
on picnics
in the middle of the summer
and just generally
‘living it up’
Yes
but then right in the middle of it
comes the smiling

mortician
