SONG by Jack Johnson

Let's watch and sing along!!!

         "Upside Down" (Lyrics)

 Who's to say 
What's impossible 
Well they forgot 
This world keeps spinning 
And with each new day 
I can feel a change in everything 
And as the surface breaks reflections fade 
But in some ways they remain the same 
And as my mind begins to spread its wings 
There's no stopping curiosity 


I want to turn the whole thing upside down 
I'll find the things they say just can't be found 
I'll share this love I find with everyone 
We'll sing and dance to Mother Nature's songs 
I don't want this feeling to go away 


Who's to say 
I can't do everything 
Well I can try 
And as I roll along I begin to find 
Things aren't always just what they seem 
I want to turn the whole thing upside down 
I'll find the things they say just can't be found 
I'll share this love I find with everyone 
We'll sing and dance to Mother Nature's songs 
This world keeps spinning and there's no time to waste
Well it all keeps spinning spinning round and round and 


Upside down 
Who's to say 
what's impossible and can't be found 
I don't want this feeling to go away 
 Please don't go away 
Please don't go away 
Please don't go away 


Is this how it's supposed to be 
Is this how it's supposed to be

MANDALAS

HAVE YOU EVER HEARD ABOUT MANDALAS?


  • Mandala is a Sanskrit word that means 'circle' or 'completion'. They are used in various spiritual traditions as teaching tools, aids to meditation or to create sacred spaces.
  • In nature Mandalas are found in lots of places - the solar system, the shell of a snail, snowflakes, the petals of some flowers or the rings in a tree trunk.
  • Mandalas come in both simple and more complicated, intricate designs, so whatever your skill level you can be sure to find a coloring mandala to suit you. 
  • Mandala coloring is an extremely relaxing activity, and coloring a mandala can be very calming and healing. The special design of a mandala is great for relieving stress and tension, and for helping you to enter a meditative state.
  • Mandalas are not only beautiful to look at, they are powerful tools for inspiration, healing and self discovery. We hope you find these mandalas coloring pages enjoyable.
