A Season of Songs

Wow. Has it really been almost two months since I have written? Sadly, I can almost fill in a lot of different endings to that sentence, "Has it really been almost two months since......" It's definitely been a season, of ups, downs, way downs =), and everything in between. Somewhere amongst this "season" I just can't seem to find my words. I know this is going to come as a shock to all of my three readers out there, lol, but I just can't seem to piece my thoughts together long enough before they seem to jump to another.

But then I realized the other day, that that is not entirely true. It isn't that I've (temporarily) lost my passion or desire to write, I've just been channeling my thoughts in a different direction. Music.

I love music. To the very deep down depths of me.....I love a good song. As cheesy as it sounds, it does move me. I can't tell you how many times I have heard a song amongst friends or family and asked, "Did you listen to those words?" Usually followed by...."Uh, no." (lol) It's just who I am. Some hear melody, I hear lyrics. I can find meaning in one line of a song as if I had written it myself. I love music!!! Throughout these months, it has been songs that replaced my own words. So, while I struggle to find "me", I'm going to share the songs that touch my soul or speak to my heart......ones I draw strength from, ones that paint a message, ones that give hope, ones that give that good, every once in a while cry =), and ones that bring joy!

So in honor of the GORGEOUS weather outside.....and pretty much where I've been of my favs, Patty Griffin.

This song was one my roommate and I fell in love with back in college, one I still love to this day. And let's face it, Patty's got style!
