I don’t know, don’t really care, Let there be songs to fill the air.
Ripple in still water, When there is no pebble, tossed, Nor wind to blow. You who choose to lead must follow. But if you fall you fall alone. If you should stand then who’s to guide you? If I knew the way I would take you home.
Ripple…A peace song from the joyfully named Grateful Dead, a song about bringing people together with love and affection through the power of music. It’s a classic from the ’70s, but it withstands the test of time and as we approach the season of Goodwill to all men it seems there is more conflict than most of us can ever remember, it does seem humanity never really learns.
Gathering together for the good of the local community, Connecting Crossgates have organised Carols in the Park at Manston Park on Saturday 23rd December at 6.30 -7.00pm. There’s mulled wine and mince pies on offer. Bring a torch or lantern but try not to set fire to the place.
