How meaningless the sound of the music,

When each generation create their beat,

Another generation thinks it’s a racket,

Deafening to the ears, disturbing to the mind,

Would you turn that thing off!

Would you turn that racket down!

The response

Up Up Up or Down Down Down

Is the power of the dial.


Togetherness is of such a time as this.  At New Year’s Eve churches were filled with people, their singing and prayers make the crossing over service into the new year a joyous one.  Lots make the effort to gather together at home and in their social gatherings too.  The praise and worship, the sing-a-long, the cheers and hugs are what we remember of these company of acquaintances.  And at different times  throughout the year these people and the joy we shared as strangers, family and friends come to mind and help us carry on with life’s daily nuances.
