Anything Can Happen If You Let It

Uncategorized

I love going to New York City. Love it, love it, love it. And so does my daughter, Austin. And my husband, Richard. But David? Not so much. He  does, however, love food and theater enough to “put up” with Manhattan’s lack of trees and nature in general.

So when the chance popped up to go to NYC to see Mary Poppins with the original “Bert”, we jumped at the chance. It was the perfect quick trip, with a comfy room at the Marriott Marquis, wonderful fresh & organic food, a quick visit with friends, and Row F center seats for Mary.

I had read a lot about the show online, and talked to several friends who had seen it, so I was pretty sure it was going to be an uplifting show. It didn’t disappoint. The cast was simply amazing, and the set was phenomenal. The energy from the whole musical was just the thing we needed, and the lyrics from one of the songs really made an impression. I’d like to share them with you:

Anything can happen if you let it
Sometimes things are difficult but you can bet it
Doesn’t have to be so
Changes can be made
You can move a mountain if you use a larger spade
Anything can happen, it’s a marvel
You can be a butterfly
Or just stay larval
Stretch your mind beyond fantastic
Dreams are made of strong elastic

Take some sound advice and don’t forget it
Anything can happen if you let it

I wonder…
Anything can happen if you let it
You won’t know a challenge until you’ve met it
No one does it for you
No one but yourself
Vacillating violets get left up on the shelf
Anything can happen, just imagine

That should be epitaph
I wear the badge in
Honour of this world’s free thinkers
Those who see beyond their blinkers

Jelly isn’t jelly
‘Til you set it
Anything can happen if you let it

Anything can happen if you let it
What good is a whistle
Unless you whet it

Broaden your horizons
Open different doors
You may find a you there that you never knew was yours

Anything can happen
Raise the curtain
Things you though impossible
Will soon seem certain
Thought at first it may sound clownish
See the world more upside-downish
Turn it on its head then pirouette it
Anything can happen if you let it

If you reach for the stars
All you get are the stars
But we’ve found a whole new spin
If you reach for the heavens
You get the stars thrown in

You get the stars thrown in

If you reach for the stars
All you get are the stars
But we’ve found a whole new spin
If you reach for the heavens
You get the stars thrown in

Anything can happen if you let it
Life is out there waiting so go and get it
Grab it by the collar, seize it by the scruff
Once you’ve started living life you just can’t get enough

Anything can happen, it’s official
You can choose the super or the superficial
Sally forth the way we’re steering
Obstacles start disappearing
Go and chase your dreams you won’t regret it
Anything can happen
(Anything can happen)
Anything can happen

Anything can happen
If you let it

One of my favorite lines is “the way we’re steering
Obstacles start disappearing”. I see that as a perfect line for this battle that we are fighting. The obstacles are there, sure, but we’re going to steer past them.

David's always game for a laugh!

We believe in magic and miracles.
