We started composing Songs For Kids together.
Here is our seventh song. It is called…
What will you do when you grow up, Adora?
____________________________________________________
In 5 years you will be happy
And you’ll know how to ski downhill
You will draw very well
You will run very fast
And you probably won’t stand still.
 - - - - - -
In 10 years you will write your first book
It may be a story about twins
Who live under water
And tame daring otters
With blue polka dots on their skins.
  - - - - - -
In 15 years you will go to college
And study to be a dentist
Or a teacher, or a dancer
Or a dog groomer apprentice.
 - - - - - -
In 20 years you’ll be living in London
Or in Rio de Janeiro or New York.
For lunch you’ll cook a scrumptious feast
Of beads and roasted pork.
 - - - - - - 
In 30 years you’ll have a baby
With tattoos and wild eyes.
You’ll grow his hair long
And feed him French fries.
 - - - - - -
In 40 years you’ll move to a house
by a beautiful lake in Montana
At night you will walk to the water
And peel yourself a banana.
 - - - - - -
In 90 years you will be very old
And become a famous Buddhist
- At least in the winter -
Because in the summer
You will always remain a nudist.

Today’s delightful Adora Flying A Single Engine Yellow Plane was created by Karissa Purcell from Brisbane, Australia, who wrote: I’m a commercial pilot. When I was young girl, about Adora’s age now, my dad used to take me flying in his hang glider and I absolutely loved it. I still remember the feeling of the wind rushing by, everything looking tiny and different, feeling like a bird.
It was based on this photograph.
In lieu of payment for her work, Karissa asked that I make a donation to The Against Malaria Foundation, which I gladly did.
Thank you so much, Karissa!
