What Happens When?
(On Silly Farm)

What happens when the clock strikes ten
And all the mice jump in the rice?
Mr. Cat comes out to play
And chases all those mice away.

What happens when the cow and hen
Watch TV at half passed three?
The farmer’s wife wakes quickly and
Brings a snack of bread and jam.

What happens when the horse named Glen
Drives the tractor like an actor?
Farmer John, in striped pyjama,
Films the scene with movie-camera.

What happens when the whole pig-pen
Is filled at eight with birthday cake?
Everyone will dance and play
And eat that yucky cake all day.

What happens when they all pretend
That dogs are cats and frogs are rats?
All of them will sing and laugh
And ride around on tall giraffes.

What happens when the lamb with pen,
Writes this poem and sends it home?
All the other lambs will shout,
“Silly farm! You should get out!”

As mentioned in the last two posts, a dear friend of ours from France has been poised to triumph in the national TV singing contest there. Well …

HE WON!

The actual events and interviews speak for themselves.

WHAT A GREAT FEELING!

Here’s an article in “Le Parisien” (major French newspaper):

Vincennes’ mayor put posters “Vote Yoann” on the walls of the town, on the walls of the schools, and organized a support evening! (before the contest finals)

~click on Yoann~

Yoann in the newspaper

and:

In another newspaper interview (before the finals) Yoann explained that he’s not sure why he won over his old friend and teacher, Emmanuel Djob, but that the people voted that way, and maybe because he (Yoann) gave love from his heart, and maybe because coaches Jenifer and Florent Pagny were also supporting him; and that he does not get stressed or nervous because he practices meditation regularly, and music is an extension of his self, making no difference if he sings alone or in front of thousands, and seeking to perfect, not just the skills, but to go deeper to reach the true self; and this approach to singing is not restricted to one culture or religion, but can express all aspects of spirituality; and he will continue to sing, and someday hopefully create a music school in Paris. (In one more article, it’s mentioned that he meditated with other contestants, helping to calm their stress.)

a few months later,

Here was an evening of outstanding creativity and inspiration,

Every age has its greatest discovery.

The greatest of all is inside of us.
