oh, you're changing your heart

I called the Conrad Mansion today before I lost my nerve :) I talked to Margo, I think she is the one who is there on Thursdays. She told me they hadn't made a decision yet (I was disappointed, but it's better than being told I didn't get the job) and that they had a few more people they needed to talk to, and then they would know by sometime next week. I'm on pins and needles, but I can feel the prick a little longer. It's ok, it's worth the wait.

It's a nice day! Maybe not "nice" by other people's definitions but it feels "nice" to me. It feels fresh, like you could walk outside and take an endless breath of air... cool and refreshing. (Not that I've been outside yet, for heaven's sakes I'm still in my jammies.)

Today I was listening to a CD I'm borrowing from Nik (while I was making cookies for Bible study) and I found a song that was soooo pretty... The CD is called Mother Earth by Within Temptation and the song is "In Perfect Harmony." Here are the lyrics. (and here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLbA49GTM3k

In a world so far away
At the end of a closing day
A little child was born and raised
Deep in the forest on a hidden place
Mother never saw his face

Ancient spirits of the forest
Made him king of elves and trees
He was the only human being who lived in harmony
In perfect harmony

The woods protected, fulfilled his needs
Fruit by birds, honey by bees
He found shelter under the trees
He grew up in their company
They became his family

Ancient spirits of the forest
Made him king of elves and trees
He was the only human being who lived in harmony
In perfect harmony

A thousand seasons
They passed him by
So many times, have said goodbye
And when the spirits called out his name
To join forever, forever to stay
A forest spirit he became

Ancient spirits of the forest
Made him king of elves and trees
He was the only human being who lived in harmony
In perfect harmony
