about

I Look High by Ama Chandra 
On a drive from Columbia to Baltimore, I had just finished a patient visit and the sky was cloudy. The clouds were  blowing and billowy in wisps in steel grey sky. They flew above me on an empty stretch of road and I remembered  that we are one and a message from the clouds  to remember to look high. During that drive this song moved from being a tapped out on the steering wheel mantra to a song chant of connection and communication.

lyrics

The clouds are sending messages my way
The clouds are sending messages my way

I rise up in the morning time
Clear heart
Clear mind
Feel the sunlight on my face
Ready to make a brand new day
I don't know what it will be
I just know it starts with me
To give what I came to give
I go, I gotta fight, I gotta live
I look high yeah
I look high

The clouds are sending messages my way
The clouds are sending messages my way
The clouds are sending messages my way The clouds are sending messages my way

Feel the sun on my face and it speaks to me
See the clouds in the sky as they set me free
When wind it blows and touches my shoulders
When the rain it pours and washes me over
I don't know what it will be
I just know it starts with me
To give what I came to give
I go, I gotta fight, I gotta live
I look high yeah
I look high

The clouds are sending messages my way
The clouds are sending messages my way
The clouds are sending messages my way
The clouds are sending messages my way
