Beautiful and Barefoot


You've got to get up every morning with a smile on your face
And show the world all the love in your heart
Then people gonna treat you better
You're gonna find, yes, you will
That you're beautiful as you feel




Waiting at the station with a workday wind a-blowing
I've got nothing to do but watch the passers-by
Mirrored in their faces I see frustration growing
And they don't see it showing, why do I?




You've got to get up every morning with a smile on your face
And show the world all the love in your heart
Then people gonna treat you better
You're gonna find, yes, you will
That you're beautiful as you feel




I have often asked myself the reason for sadness
In a world where tears are just a lullaby
If there's any answer, maybe love can end the madness
Maybe not, oh, but we can only try




You've got to get up every morning with a smile on your face
And show the world all the love in your heart
Then people gonna treat you better
You're gonna find, yes, you will
That you're beautiful as you feel



"Beautiful" Lyrics by
Carole King
"Tapestry" (Album 1971)

For years I lived in my little old motorhome in silence. No music. No TV. No radio. It was/is very beneficial for healing. Now I often listen to music thanks to technology, public libraries and repurposed stereo speakers from an angel. 

"Beautiful"  is one of my favorite songs. 

The coastal Sights and Scenes above are from the southern end of the Grand Strand south of Murrells Inlet South Carolina, USA.

Sometimes people feel sorry for me not having a car in such a complicated country where car ownership is taken for granted. I don't feel sorry for me. It's a wonderful treasured tradeoff to have nature instead of a car. The pictures were snapped while I was out walking barefoot in places where cars can't go. 

Life is goof.

I woke up alive the sun came up, life is awesomely beautiful. It's Sunday, a wondrous day of thanks. 

Thanks for stopping by today. You're beautiful.

  2. I was very fortunate to be self-employed in several careers I loved. Never thought my body would fall apart so soon. Hard use!
