2020 Reflections

First, I want to thank everyone, old and new followers, for reading my blog. I plan to continue with my nature and vintage pictures. My absence from this blog is due to my house fire right before Christmas. In one single evening, I lost everything, my photos, my writings, my mementos, and my beloved pets. I cannot even begin to describe the heartache from this event.

But I am here. I am grateful. I have a roof over my head (I moved back home with my dad). I have food and clothing. I still have my car and my job. I am actually luckier than many right now. I set out each day with the hope that everything will get easier.

The overwhelming event has given me insight. When everything falls apart, you realize who is there to stand by you. From my neighbors dropping off food to my cousin who set up a GoFund Me page, I appreciate all the generosity.

Of course, I already searching for old photos, slides, and negatives to use.

Until next time…peace

30 Days of Thanks- Day 10-Music

“I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity.

It’s something we are all touched by.

No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.”

Billy Joel

 

Today, November 10, 2015, I am thankful for music. I know I mentioned music yesterday when I said, I was thankful for YouTube. But I wanted to expand on how much I love music. I listen to all types of music. I cannot pinpoint one specific genre. I listen to everything from opera to hard rock.

I actually listen to music more than I watch television. I tend to write for hours at a time; having music in the background helps with my creative thought process. If I am writing a sad or dramatic scene, opera and classic music help the story unfold. I use classic rock or anything with a thumping base for writing a scene filled with intense emotions.

For the most part, I do purchase my music online. The process is simple. I get my music instantly. Other times, I will be walking through a store and spot a new cd and I throw the item in my cart.

What is your favorite music? Do you have a favorite group or band?

Until next timeā€¦.peace.
