these are the days

Just getting back into 10,000 Maniacs.
'These are the Days' is a great track - moving listening as I watch young undergrads come up to their graduation, looking back over the 15? years since leaving University myself and remembering how good life can be at that age...

Listen & watch here.

These are the days you'll remember.
Never before and never since, I promise, will the whole world be warm as this.
And as you feel it, you'll know it's true that you are blessed and lucky.
It's true that you are touched by something that will grow and bloom in you.

These are the days you'll remember.
When May is rushing over you with desire to be part of the miracles you see in every hour. You'll know it's true that you are blessed and lucky.
It's true that you are touched by something that will grow and bloom in you.

These are the days you might fill with laughter until you break.
These days you might feel a shaft of light make its way across your face.
And when you do you'll know how it was meant to be.
See the signs and know their meaning.
It's true, you'll know how it was meant to be.
Hear the signs and know they're speaking to you, to you.

Mmmm.... my first instincts were right we do have a lot in common. That song is one of my favourites of all time.

Enjoyed the chat yesterday and I'm already promoting University chaplaincy to my currently New Zealand located friend! xxx RD.

And Kate Rusby, too, by the looks of it.
