What Are We Waiting For?

While I was cycling through Sefton Park the other day I noticed how the sunlight caught the water on the lake to illuminate the stepping stones which cross one of its feeder streams. That, coupled with the dappling sunlight through the trees produced a rather enchanted scene. To add still further to the magical day, high in the skies above the lake and adjacent field I caught sight of my first swifts and swallows of the year, swooping and swishing through the electric air.

Amiina, are a wonderful musical ensemble from Iceland I’ve recently discovered while listening to Falling Tree Productions Short Cuts on radio four. Sorry, I can’t remember which particular episode but you can work your way through their back catalogue on Soundcloud here as I have been doing. It is a treasure trove of delight.

I wonder,
I wonder a mountain.
I wonder today.
I want to see all see clearly.
I wonder today:

What are we waiting for?
Just pick up your shoes and go.
What are we waiting for?
Today is the best we have!
I walk up,
I walk up a mountain.
I want to let all
Feel small, see all see clearly.
I want to let go.
What are we waiting for?
Just pick up your shoes and go.
What are we waiting for?
Today is the best we have!
What are we waiting for?
Just pick up your shoes and go.
