I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.


I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.


The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
They're really saying I love you.

I hear babies crying, I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll never know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world.

Sitting upon the mountain over looking Nara, watching Japanese families playing with deer(well kids with handfuls of deer food getting chased by deer anyway, funny as...) with the sun about to set, What a wonderful world comes on my ipod and it brings a tear to my eye. It has almost been one yr since leaving the golden shores of Australia (HOME) and i have been to more amazing places than i can really comprehend. I was truely in this moment and it was a great feeling that i have had oh so many times along the way. I can safely say that the quote from the movie Into the wild "Happiness only real when shared" is null and void, kaput, full of it, so forth and so on, i have had so many moments of happiness shared only with me, myself and I. Sitting upon this mountain, on this day was definitly one of them.
