{five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes}

Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes,
Five hundred twenty-five thousand moments so dear.
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
How do you measure, measure a year?

Art 1

In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights, in cups of coffee
In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife.

In five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
How do you measure a year in the life?

Art II

How about love?
How about love?
How about love? 
Measure in love.
Seasons of love. 


Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes!
Five hundred twenty-five thousand journeys to plan.
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
How do you measure the life of a woman or a man?

In truths that she learned, or in times that he cried.
In bridges he burned, or the way that she died.

Art IV

It's time now to sing out, tho' the story never ends
Let's celebrate, remember a year in the life of friends
Remember the love!
Remember the love!
Seasons of love!

Measure your life in love.

  1. I love that song, and I love those mosaics! The colours are filled with joy.

  2. Wow!
    That's impressive Cathy.
    Here's wishing for an abundant, creative and joyful next 525,600 minutes!
    It's been wonderful sharing the last 525,600 minutes with you in blogland.

  3. How pretty. Happy New Year to you!!
    I saw you on the Get your paint on site that you may sign up. I am so super tempted. It looks awesome.

  4. WOW! I love your fabulous pictures.

    I measure a year in how much Busy has grown in height but also in personality, gone is the difficult at times tantrum throwing almost 3 year old to a absolutely sheer delight of almost 4.

    I measure it in that I STILL love Chef more everyday and we are still happy together and planning for our future.

    I measure it in improved photo taking on my behalf and a willingness to acknowledge openly that I am creative. I am artisitc. I really am.

    Thanks Cathy for this reflection. I hope yourself and Ms L have a lovely New Year. xx
