This morning I leaned over my balcony to look down and snapped this picture of pure white snow. I thought to myself how tired I am of people telling me to “look up.” There are “good things up ahead.”

I think there is more value in looking down.


Look up, look up, things will get better

Look up, look up, write someone a letter

Look up, look up, the sky is so blue!

The sun is shining and so are you.


Look down, look down, all is always the same.

Look down, look down, hopscotch is a game

Look down, look down, the ocean is black

Look down, look down, she’s not coming back.


Look up to the skies and feed me your lies

I prefer looking down where reality lies.


And therein lies my peace.
