I'm trying to fix up the words of an ancient song that a friend of mine and I wrote when I was at Uni. It's a kind of paraphrase of Colossians 1 and 2. I need a two syllable word for "good" to use in a substitute for the word "gospel".

I consulted my good friend What do you think of "gnarly news"? Doesn't really work does it?!

For now I think I'm going with "awesome". Any other ideas?

5 things I'm thinking about at the moment

1. The necessary, frustrating but instructing inefficiency of family life.
2. The way we (adults) teach kids to share, and insist that they share, but don't do it ourselves.
3. That life is not a zero sum game (thanks C!).
4. How I can take better photos of my kids without investing too much time in learning how to take better photos (ha!)
5. Greed, materialism and the internet community - particularly the way the eco-friendly / online / handmade thing makes it "ok" to not be content with what you have and makes lusting for more a good / normal thing to do.

I'm also thinking about a whole lot of less deep things.

How about you? What's on your mind?
