How cool is this?

What are you talkin ’bout Jilly?

Ima talkin ’bout the new way of playing #JusJoJan!

Very cool is the correct answer.

You’re showing your age with that one. No one says “cool” anymore. And don’t add the beans to cool because that is even less hip.

Enough bantering, let’s go. After reading the story of Petra with the cliffhanger pending for Tuesday, I am excited. As always, more to come folks. Linda is making us wait. In the meantime servant is the prompt.

Petra sounds a bit like Cinderella. And Cheryl wrote about Cinderella yesterday. Here is a rather long wiki about Cinderella should perusing it strike your fancy. I think I like the Brothers Grimm version the best with Cinderella visiting the weeping tree planted near her mother’s grave. I like the idea of getting strength from the memory of a departed loved one over the fictional fairy godmother.

There are usually themes that intertwine in the stories of my mind. I’ve come to realize my life is all about MSU = making stuff up. Not necessarily lies per se but conjuring up the perception of how things are which becomes my reality. Trippy man, trippy. I used to say I was born late. Maybe a decade behind.

Okay back to servant. The first thing I thought of was work. Ugh! I know I’m not at work but somehow the work stuff is always there in the recesses of my mind waiting to spring forth. I thought of the term servant leadership which is actually a very positive thing. And I am blessed to have had many a servant leader in my day. The kind that inspire you and make you want to do better. Of course people pleaser Jilly comes by wanting to do better all on her own.

To join in the fun and frolics that is #JusJoJan, here are the rules and ping back.

Jim gives us PG (title of song must start with the letter P or G). After quickly ruling out “Papa Don’t Preach” by Madonna, I moved to the 60s picking “Get Together” written by Chester Powers. Here are some song facts. The version I chose for today was recorded by the Youngbloods. Hope you enjoy!

“Get Together”
Love is but a song we sing
Fear’s the way we die
You can make the mountains ring
Or make the angels cry
Though the bird is on the wing
And you may not know why

Come on, people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now

Some may come and some may go
He will surely pass
When the one that left us here
Returns for us at last
We are but a moment’s sunlight
Fading in the grass

Come on, people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now

Come on, people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now

Come on, people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now

If you hear the song I sing
You will understand, listen
You hold the key to love and fear
All in your trembling hand
Just one key unlocks them both
It’s there at your command

Come on, people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now

Come on, people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now

I said come on, people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now
Right now
Right now
