The moral of your story

Mr Benn, a man wearing a black suit and bowler hat, leaves his house at 52 Festive Road London, and visits a fancy-dress costume shop where he is invited by the shopkeeper to try on a particular outfit. He walks through a magic door at the back of the changing room and enters a world appropriate to his costume, where he has a adventure. There is always a moral to be learned from the story, before the shopkeeper reappears to lead him back to the changing room.

Mr Benn returns to his normal life, but is left with a small souvenir of his magical adventure.

As a child, Mr Benn was my favourite cartoon that aired on television from 1971 until 2005.

I just loved the idea that Mr Benn could be whomever he wanted to be depending on what outfit he chose to wear on that particular day.

How wonderful.

Who would you be if you could choose any outfit right now?

Overwhelm

I thought sooner or later
The lights up above
Will come down in circles and guide me to love
But I don’t know what’s right for me
I cannot see straight
I’ve been here too long and I don’t want to wait for it

Fly like a cannonball
Straight to my soul
Tear me to pieces and make me feel whole
I’m willing to fight for it and carry this weight
But with every step
I keep questioning what is true

Fall on me
With open arms
Fall on me
From where you are
Fall on me
With all your light
With all your light
With all your light
With all your light

Soon you will find what your heart wants to know
Don’t give up hope for I know you are close
And all you have ever dreamed, wished you could ever be
Is waiting to find you wherever you go
Believe in yourself, ever step that you take
Know I am smiling with pride everyday
My love will forever be, stronger than stone
Don’t be afraid you are never alone

Andrea Bocelli – Fall On Me

The words resonate.

It’s damp outside and even though the land needs watering, it feels miserable.

So much has changed and there’s even more that hasn’t.

Overwhelm, has many facets.

Do you think they’d find me up there?

I wonder if I can get a one way ticket!
