Rooftops - Little Boxes on the Hillside

When I saw these rooftops all snugged together, they reminded me of little boxes, and the words of the song "Little Boxes" came to mind, and I started singing -
Little boxes on the hillside,
Little boxes made of ticky-tacky,
Little boxes, little boxes,
Little boxes, all the same.
There's a green one and a pink one
And a blue one and a yellow one
And they're all made out of ticky-tacky
And they all look just the same.


People did look at me a little strangely!
The words are true of many of us, even though we may not realise. How many of us lead rather set lives - Mum bought X cereal, we buy X cereal. DAd went to the footy, we go to the footy. How often do we mirror our parents? We may like to think we are different, or original, but really - have a think about it. Just how different are we - if we're honest, not much at all really. (See the video below.)



I've always loved this video version mainly, I think, because of the pictures - they capture the words so beautifully.
