It’s world kindness day today, which is a great excuse to post one of my favourite Kurt Vonnegut quotes:
â€œHello, babies. Welcome to Earth. Itâ€™s hot in the summer and cold in the winter. Itâ€™s round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, youâ€™ve got about a hundred years here. Thereâ€™s only one rule that I know of, babiesâ€”God damn it, youâ€™ve got to be kind.â€
I wrote a song about it several years ago (the piano was played by my brother, who’s now in Stadium* with me). The vocal’s a bit ropey but I still love the song.
