Birthday crumpets and the Innocence Mission

 

My birthday gift to you before I head off to the land of tea, crumpets and ale. I am head over heels in love with Karen Peris from The Innocence Mission. Her voice is hauntingly beautiful.

 

I love these words:

 

Waiting at the airport on my suitcase,
a girl traveling from Spain became my sudden friend,
though I did not learn her name.
And when the subway dimmed
a stranger lit my way.
This is the brotherhood of man.

 

See you all when I return from England for my birthday celebration. May strangers light your way and I hope you will do the same for them.
