Kids do the darndest things...

My nephew tried to throw my sister his new green ball tonight. He doesn't quite understand the capabilities of skype yet. He's only 2. The ball didn't quite make it through the computer screen.

new song

Sit back, feelin' like you don't have a choice
Don'tcha, don't forget'cha have a voice
Just put on your song and
keep on singing!

So Stand Up and get into the picture
I believe that there is something bigger
than you and me
so set yourself free
love makes the light shine
and now is the right time for it

-excerpt from "Stand Up", Catherine Papworth (c) 2010

more Theresa

I may be going overboard with these videos...but she is never ceasing to amaze me. This song is on her album but sounds great live, too.

how I spent my holiday...

Even though I am currently self-employed, I was told that I should take the day off yesterday. So, I spent half the day working and then had a pleasant afternoon to myself.

rainy day
moonlight sonata
roasted red pepper and tomato soup
bubble bath
white gardenia

before it breaks

say it's over
say I'm dreaming
say I'm better than you left me
say you're sorry, I can take it
say you'll wait, say you won't
say you love me, say you don't
I can make my own mistakes
let it bend before it breaks

-Before It Breaks, Brandi Carlile
a genius bit of songwriting there...

how these days grow long...

this song is actually called "Dying Day". Love me some good ole fashioned harmonies laid over a well-constructed melody. Also digging that this is totally unplugged. gutsy. This song is feeding my soul like Ingrid Michaelson's "Everybody" album fed my soul pretty much all of October, November and December. Is it possible for something reach you deep inside and fill you to the brim and still leave you yearning? It's a marvel.
I can't decide which one I like better. The first is better video, but the second is a better performance, I think. You decide.

Thursday, January 7, 2010 can make you feel on top of the world, unconquerable, awe-inspired, radiant and blissfully overjoyed.

and can make you feel small and insignificant...mystified and unforgivable.

in my earbuds:
John Mayer-I'm on Fire
sometimes it's like someone put a knife baby
edgy and dull and cut a six-inch valley through
the middle of my soul
At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet
And a freight train running through the
Middle of my head
Only you can cool my desire
Im on fire

Theresa Andersson-God's Highway
This is the time that's been given to me on God's highway
she is good and that's how I want to be on God's highway
I found my love and I lost my friend on God's highway
I fell and fell and I will fall again on God's highway

Theresa Andersson-Now I Know
Now I know how much I loved you in the morning
and when you're back, you can always come home
I've had enough of living without you
I've had enough of living alone

Jeff Buckley-Hallelujah
There was a time when you let me know
what's really going on below
but now you never show that to me do ya
but remember when i moved in you
and the holy dark was moving too
and every breath we drew was hallelujah

this woman

is currently my hero. she's quote my friend Christopher Diaz, "I'm so mad". I saw this video last night, purchased her album "Hummingbird, Go!" today and am completely mesmerized. she is like reaching a dormant part of my soul and i hate and love her for it. she recorded the whole album in her kitchen. that just makes me so mad. i want to kill her.
