Quote of the Day – Peter Yarrow on Music

Yes, I get a lot of my quote inspiration from those who have birthdays on the specific day that I’m posting/finding the quote of the day. Today is Mozart’s birthday. Of all the incredible things that Mozart gave to the world, the biggest is beautiful music. Today’s quote reflects how much we, and I, appreciate…

Top 11 Songs To Get You In the Spirit of Christmas.

I had the great fortune to win tickets to see Mannheim Steamroller last night thanks to the Oregon Symphony. Sitting in the front row, hearing their versions of music for Christmas, I got to thinking; I love Christmas music. I also love various versions of some of the more traditional. Here are the top 11…

So Amazing …And So Sad

I admit it. I’ve been watching the X-factor. It’s not because I like reality shows. It’s not because I like singing competitions, but because of this young girl: At the end of the video, when she got the four yeses, did you hear it? Did you hear what she told the judges when given such…

Music: Never Let Me Go

I realized it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything musical on my blog. Which is a good thing since I’ve become totally enamored with the new Florence + the Machine album Ceremonials. There is so many good songs on this album, but I currently have this song: Never Let Me Go – on repeat….

Just a song…

Music: It’s All Garbage.

I’ve been listening to some music a lot lately, and while I know people know that I’m a big fan of some artists, I have a special affinity for Garbage. I found their music when I was going through a pretty interesting time in my life and they became the de-facto soundtrack to my early…

2010… My Music

It’s time for me to start “Navel Gazing” for 2010. To kick things off: The music that got me through the year. As anyone who has been reading my blog this year would know. I like music and these are some of the songs which either: Made me happy, got me groovin’ or just plain…

Erased

In the past weeks I’ve had a lot of time to think, reflect and mull-over so many things in (and out) of my life. I find myself with a little less patience, but I’m full of love. I’ve spent many days thanking the powers that be for all the things I’ve been privileged to be…
