Last night, just as I was getting into bed, the ‘something’ that had been repeating through my mind all afternoon, revealed itself. (That’s how my mind works. I know something is working away in the background and that it will reveal itself sooner or later. Usually much later.)
It started when I realized I was rushing when there was no need to. A “slow down, you’re going too fast”.
It was the words of the Simon and Garfunkel song Feeling Groovy.
Slow down, you move too fast, you've got to make the morning last
Just kickin' down the cobble-stones, lookin' for fun and feelin' groovy
Hello lamp-post, what's cha knowing, I've come to watch your flowers growin'
Ain't cha got no rhymes for me, do-it-do-do, feelin' groovy
I've got no deeds to do, no promises to keep
I'm dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep
Let the morning time drop all its petals on me
Life I love you, all is groovy
Mind you, my lamp-post is a fence post, but other than that, these words nailed it. I was certainly feeling dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep.
