MY DAY: Friday Funday became Someday

I kept the day moving along from start to finish!

I worked on the deck with research and writing and completed my morning at Carillon Park to visit the new Wright Brothers’ exhibit and a lunch at Culp’s Cafe.

The afternoon was spent in my study researching and writing, a quick nap with the dogs, and at 6:00 PM I was out the door for a wonderful evening with Jim and Linda Utt for dinner at Uno’s and THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME at The Victoria Theatre.

One of the songs from the show by Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz, “Someday,” is a special song to me.  The lyrics… ahhh, the lyrics.  For many years, the lyrics, which I’ve included below, along with a video of Nick Pitera performing a beautiful rendition, were on our family Christmas cards.

It was a damn good day!

Someday, when we are wiser,
When the world’s older,
When we have learned.
I pray someday we may yet
Live to live and let live.
Someday life will be fairer,
Need will be rarer,
And greed will not pay.
Godspeed this bright millennium on its way,
Let it come someday.
Someday our fight will be won, then
We’ll stand in the sun, then,
That bright afternoon.
Till then, on days when the sun is gone
We’ll hang on and we’ll wish upon the moon.
Someday, when we are wiser,
When the world’s older,
When we have learned.
I pray someday we may yet
Live to live and let live.
Someday life will be fairer,
Need will be rarer,
Greed will not pay.
God speed this bright millennium.
Let it come, one day, someday, soon.
