Give A Little Bit...
¡°Theres so much that we need to share,
So send a smile and show that you care...¡±
¡®Give a Little Bit¡¯ is the opening song on the band Supertramp¡¯s 1977 album ¡®Even in the Quietest Mo-
ments¡¯. The song was released as a single that same year and became an international hit for the band,
peaking at number 15 on the Billboard Pop Singles chart. Its writing credits are given to Rick Davies
and Roger Hodgson, although it is a Hodgson composition from his teenage years. A light ditty, with
a smooth melody and beautiful instrumentals, ¡®Give a Little Bit¡¯ gives listeners a whole lot. Not only
does the song immediately make people smile(it¡¯s the most cheered song on every tour), it¡¯s message
resonates with the power to touch the soul. There¡¯s proof of that in the numerous charitable events
that have used this song to help inspire. What ¡®Give a Little Bit¡¯ gives is love, which we all crave, and it
reminds us that we have a world of life to share, and that we need to be caring towards each other. Most
importantly, the song reminds us of the awesome power of love; a little bit of love goes a long way. It is
a good feeling to know that, and also, to realize that when you ¡°see the man with the lonely eyes¡± and
you ¡°take his hand, you¡¯ll be so surprised¡± by the rewards of connection. As the song says, ¡°Give a little
bit of your love to me, I¡¯ll give a little bit of my life for you.¡± That¡¯s the way it works. Gratitude for lov-
ing kindness attaches us together as much as the initial act of love does. Said Hodgson, in a 2012 online
interview with, ¡°That song has really taken on a life of its own, and I think it¡¯s even more
relevant today than when I wrote it(about 1970). Because we really are needing to value love in a much
deeper way, and also we¡¯re needing to care. The song is basically saying: just show you care. You know,
reach out and show you care.¡± Amen. Show you care, give a little bit of your love. It will make you sing.

The silverhawk feather that graces our front page was chosen for it¡¯s significant spiritual
symbolism. Hawks are symbols of spirit, wisdom and power. The hawk is the messenger. It is
also about visionary power and guardianship, the hawk is very protective of the young in its
nest. It teaches us about providing for family and self. Hawk teaches us to be observant and to
pay attention to what we may overlook. This could mean a talent we don¡¯t use, a blessing for
which we haven¡¯t expressed gratitude, or a message from Spirit. The hawk has keen eyesight, it
is about opening our eyes and seeing that which is there to guide us. Hawk is also about new
beginnings and always moving forward along the correct path.
