Upside Down: Friday Inspiration

- by Erica
This post originated on our sister blog "Beautiful Brown Babies." But as we wind up a truly exciting and inspiring week, it occured to me that everyone could use a little Jack Johnson (singer/guitarist from Hawaii, like our new President) in their lives. Leave it to my 2-year-old to pick out the perfect tune and video to sum up the events of this week. It's Jack Johnson's "Upside Down" from the Curious George soundtrack. Just try to watch and listen without cracking a smile.



Who´s to say what´s impossible?
Well, they forgot this world keeps spinning
And with each new day
I can feel a change in everything

And as the surface breaks reflections fade
But in some ways they remain the same
And as my mind begins to spread it's wings
There´s no stopping curiosity

I want to turn the whole thing upside down
I´ll find the things they say just can´t be found
I´ll share this love I find with everyone
We´ll sing and dance to mother nature´s songs
I don´t want this feeling to go away

Who´s to say I can´t do everything?
Well, I can try, and as I roll along I begin to find
Things aren´t always just what they seem

I want to turn the whole thing upside down
I´ll find the things they say just can´t be found
I´ll share this love I find with everyone
We´ll sing and dance to mother nature´s songs

This world keeps spinning
And there's no time to waste
Well it all keeps spinning spinning
Round and round and upside down

Who´s to say what´s impossible and can´t be found?
I don´t want this feeling to go away

Please don´t go away
Please don´t go away
Please don´t go away

Is this how it´s supposed to be?
Is this how it´s supposed to be?
