Amazing…

Yesterday…a song was playing in my mind…as I opened my eyes to welcome the day…Just the Way You Are…by Bruno Mars…so…of course…I had to Google it…and watch it on YouTube…

Thing about it is…it got me in such a good mood…as it continued to play in the background of my thoughts…could be that…Bertha…just kept playing it on her iPod…which brings up a thought…

Hmmm…

All these years…when I’ve woken up with songs floating through my brain…it’s just been…Bertha…playing her stereo a bit too loud…somehow that doesn’t surprise me…

Anyway…she woke me up with the song again this morning…and…reminded me…that the words of the song are so true…I don’t have to wait for anything to be…amazing…I don’t have to lose weight…I don’t have to get rich…I don’t have to win a Pulitzer Prize…no…all I have to do…is…feel it…

And…listening to the song…I do feel it…

Amazing…

Sparking on the Square…

Yesterday…I meant to go for a late afternoon bike ride…and…I started…I had on my helmet…gloves…cycling shoes…the whole nine yards…but…I’d no sooner than gotten out of the driveway…before…I heard it…

Music…

Music…coming from the town square…so…I rode the three blocks…found a comfy spot…and thoroughly enjoyed the sounds of…The Ray Sparks Band

They are a local band…I knew a couple of the members…they played some old favorites…like…I Heard it Through the GrapevineGeorgia…and…Pretty Woman

What impressed…Bertha…was…that even though they were playing popular songs…with distinctive sounds…they didn’t just try to copy the original artists…instead…they gave each song…their own flare…and…they were…very good…

Bertha…said I should take a lesson from them…

What…guitar…sax…keyboard…singing…

She rolled her eyes…and…shook her head…no…the lesson I should take…was…to not be afraid to be myself…to let my uniqueness shine…for all the world to see…it’s okay to be me…

Hmmm…she could have a point…but…I really think I might be more suited for the sax…
