A is for April Fool's Day and The Fool Tarot eBook!
C is for the Common Cold

B is for Bert (from Mary Poppins)

Today is dedicated to the letter "B", brought to you by the Blogging from A-Z Challenge!


Chim chim-in-ey, chim chim-in-ey

Chim chim cher-oo!
I does what I likes and I likes what I do


Mary Poppins
is one of my favorite movies.

Bert 300I love the chimney sweep character, Bert, played by the talented Dick Van Dyke (awful fake Cockney accent aside).

Bert has some of the best lines in this clever movie! I especially love the quote above which Bert sings in the pavement artist scene

I ponder phrases like these because they contain powerful wisdom.  I does what I likes, and I likes what I do.

In fact, there are many profound lines and lyrics throughout Mary Poppins.

Is it because the movie is geared towards kids (based on the children's book series by P. L. Travers)...and there's something unguarded and open about childlikeness? Which means, a much cleaner, clearer channel for Spirit to come through?

Much like the Fool archetype, childlikeness offers a blank slate absent of preconceived notions, reticence or hyper-self-consciousness.

I does what I likes, and I likes what I do.

I want to do what I like. I also want to like what I do. 

Do you?
