The Songs Inside My Head

So summer draws to an end, and I’m staring down the barrel of a long and challenging term. Lucky I like my job, right?

The past week has been a fitting end to a busy and relaxed and silly summer (of fabulosity!). I’ve sat up till 5 in the morning chatting with good friends. I’ve had long and deep and honest conversations. I’ve drank and sung and danced and driven and thought and dreamed (not all at the same time, I hasten to add :-)). I’ve slept deeply and woken early and lain sleepily thinking about anything and everything.

And my brain is just stuffed with music right now…with Ben Folds and Regina Spektor’s new song (You Don’t Know Me). I hope I get to see him on tour this year. With a song from Duffy’s album (Distant Dreamer) which just seems to sum up how I’m feeling at the moment. I’m a happy and blessed young lady, but I know I want more, I need to do more. But what? Now that is the question. I want to travel and love and sing and write and smile and learn and help. How to do this is the question… I’m loving the Kate Rusby song that a friend recommended (Underneath the Stars). As someone who loves nothing more than just lying back and looking at the stars, this song just resounds. I love music.

There’s so much I could write about, but there’s so much I need to sort out in my head also. So for now I’ll leave you with three amazing songs and wish you a very happy weekend…

    Good tunes. And good things. My head is a muddle too. I think it happens to all the bets of us, and then we sit down and see where we want to go. I had the scary one though. I was aksed what I would do with myself if time and money were not an issue. And then after answering challenged to see if I could do it anyway. And I might. It kind of focussed the mind. I hope you find your focus.

    So glad that you are enjoying the new Ben. Hope you do get to see him. He still hasn’t added any Cdn dates, but I have my fingers crossed.Can’t believe that real life is starting again.
