I Believe

I believe there are some debts
That we never can repay
I believe there are some words
That you can never unsay
And I don’t know a single soul
Who didn’t get lost along the way
I believe in socks and gloves
Knit out of soft grey wool
And that there’s a place in heaven for those
Who teach in public school
And I know I get some things right
But mostly I’m a fool

Chorus
I believe in a good strong cup of ginger tea
And all these shoots and roots will become a tree
All I know is I can’t help but see
All of this as so very holy

I believe in jars of jelly
Put up by careful hands
I believe most folks are doing just
About the best they can
And I know there are some things
That I will never understand

Chorus
I believe there’s healing in the sound of your voice
And that a summer tomato is a cause to rejoice
And that following a song was never really a choice
Never really

I believe in a good long letter
written on real paper and with real pen
I believe in the ones I love
and know I’ll never see again
I believe in the kindness of strangers
and the comfort of old friends
And when I close my eyes to sleep at night
that it’s good to say “Amen”

I believe that life’s comprised of
smiles and sniffles and tears
And in an old coat that still has
another good year
And I know I get scared sometimes
but all I need is here

Chorus
I believe in a good strong cup of ginger tea
And all these shoots and roots will become a tree
All I know is I can’t help but see
All of this as so very holy

I believe…

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
