Find the Music

Find the Music

A lot of people I know are musicians.  People I grew up with, family, friends. When someone brings out an instrument, you know something good is going to happen.  I have never seen anyone set strings on their lap and then start an argument.  Maybe, Dueling Banjos.

 

I keep trying out new ways of adding texture and depth.  This was a lot of fun to play with.  I hope you can hear some music in it.

Toasted Road Trip

  • To the young man at the convenience store that just found out he won $3000 on scratch off ticket.
  • To the baby deer that only made it across 4 lanes of a six lane road.
  • The the sheriff that was behind me on the tail end of a speeding caravan of cars but did not stop any of us.
  • To the trooper that passed me just as “paranoia strikes deep” danced from my speakers.
  • To Jefferson Airplane for bringing me down but not sleepy.

“When the truth is found
To be lies
And all the joy
Within you dies”

  • To the signs warning that bridges may ice first making me smile as I remember a time when I watched cars getting stuck on a bridge from my apartment window.  And how I now live too far south to see these signs on my commute.
  • To the GPS lady that welcomed me to Georgia but did not seem to care when I left for South Carolina.
  • To all of things that I forgot because, well, I was driving.  Can’t stop to take notes.
  • To the rain that hugged the sky until just now.

Stay Strong My Friends

There are a lot of things that can put a dent in your armor as you make your way through the world.  Some are small.  Like, loosing a brush that you know damn well is in the house.  It’s not like I walk down the street brushin….sorry, I digress.  Some are big, like the illness or a loss of a loved one.  There is a whole cacophony of things in between.  I heard a song this morning that I had not listened to in quite awhile.  It gave me a kick to push on and not stay defeated on the couch.  So, my friends, whether it is injury, weight, love, work, family, exercise or simply loosing a brush, stay strong and fight on!

I Like to Move it, Move it

To be healthy and  feel strong you’ve got to move it…at least a little.

I love to exercise.  That is, when I have a lot of time and energy.  So, not very often.  I almost always like it, even on the bad days.  One thing I must have is variety.  I get way to bored doing the same thing everyday.  Here is a countdown of some exercises on my radar.  I am always looking for new ideas.

What do you do to move it?

10.  Run:  I may run to the car in the rain, but nope, not even a little for workouts.  (knee & hip pain)

9.  Swim:  Would love to, however, it is way too inconvenient right now so my laziness will never make it to a pool.

8.  Bike:  Used to love it.  After a hip injury, it hurt too much.  There may be hope for this one in the future.

7. Pilates dvd:  Liked it for about a month.  I ended up adapting almost every exercise on it to avoid pain.

6. Parkour:  I used to free run all the time…..Ya right.
