I just dislike the recent song from
Sophie Ellis-Baxter
the lyrics go like this
"I won't change you and you won't change me"
two fingers down the throat time ..................
It is a terrible song anyway. Sounds like words spread like lumpy jam all over mouldy bread.
And then the issue of change! ...... the most locked in people I know are stuck and scared of change. I groan.

The book I am reading today, the film on tv with James Nesbitt in it, the music I listen to, Greenbelt, the people I call friends, the work I do, faith lived out, the dvd 'the rabbit proof fence' .......... all these are about the very purpose of CHANGE.
I want to change. I must change. I must peddle my bike or I fall off it !

It seems to me we need to so 'live' change that it becomes normal and just like breathing.

When I was a Youth Worker running a club for hells angels and rockers, I had a visit from the local Vicar
(Joan me and Joy lived above the club just after we had left the Approved School job. Ann had not been born and she is 31 now!)
The Vicar told me a story, intent on making a message.
'There was a woman who took three men to the bottom of her garden because she wanted to employ a driver. How close could you drive my Rolls Royce and me to the edge of that cliff?
