Busy busy busy

22 Nov

Do yourself a favor and find a children’s album called “Philadelphia Chickens” by Sandra Boynton.  It’s billed as “an imaginary musical revue” with a cast you won’t believe – Patti LuPone, Meryl Streep, Scott BakulaEric Stoltz, and more singing these crazy-fun kids’ songs.

The whole album is great, but you must-must-must listen to Kevin Kline singing a delightful patter song called “Busy Busy Busy.”

Why?  Apart from being a hoot, the song shows how ridiculously obsessed we are with “doing.”

For example:

We’re busy busy busy and we’ve got a lot to do and we haven’t got a minute to explain it all to you for on Sunday Monday Tuesday there are people we must see and on Wednesday Thursday Friday we’re as busy as can be with our most important meetings and our most important calls and we have to do so many things and post them on the walls.

Now, seriously… is this you?  I know it’s been me for way too long.

Busy busy busy…

Too busy to “be”, too busy to be content with… well, with anything.

However, today I am content that I can share something with you that illustrates exactly what I’m talking about in a fun, provocative, and interesting way.

I’m getting better.

    What an excellent story. It is too true, unfortunately. Now that I have too much time on my hands, I wish I could go back and do a remake. But, I am fairly content with my life. 🙂
