Here Comes the Sun

Do you have a favourite song?

I have a new favourite. Actually, it’s an old one.

It resonated with me most recently because of the prospect of summer, the acceleration of vaccines for people of all ages, and the easing of pandemic restrictions here in Canada. A world on the mend; a school looking forward to better times.

It’s written by George Harrison of The Beatles: Here Comes the Sun. You, too, might want to listen to it again. Lyrics like “It’s been a long cold lonely winter…it seems like years since it’s been here” lament the loss of sun and sunny days. But then, the emergence of the bright days sees “the smiles returning to the faces.”

Gosh, I think we can all relate. And what could be better than moving toward the end of the long lonely COVID-19 “winter” and the prospect of smiles returning to kids’ faces. Everyone’s faces…

Here comes the sun do, do, do, do
Here comes the sun
And I say it’s all right…

Let it be.

This is my final blog submission for the 2020-2021 academic year. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to read some of my thoughts and reflections. As always, I welcome your feedback. It has been quite a year for you, the School and the planet. I wish you a safe and enjoyable summer. And, I look forward to writing again in the “new” (academic) year.

Spot on Stuart

Try Richie Havens' version for an alternative arrangement. A great song.
