Speaking For Me

If I could just hire all my favorite musicians to walk around with me every day and play songs on command, I'd feel a bit better about my lack of ability to speak and say what I want to say on certain days. At the end of this honestly beautiful day, which is at the end of a very emotional couple weeks full of love and family and sadness and beauty, a time during which I am having so much trouble verbally articulating anything I'm trying to get across, at least I can count on music to help me out. Some of the beauty, specifically, I'm feeling and appreciating as of late, and specifically today and tonight:

Simon and Garfunkel - For Emily, Wherever I May Find Her


Led Zeppelin - The Rain Song


Loggins & Messina - Danny's Song


Andy Williams - Moon River


Björk - Jóga


Jane's Addiction - Summertime Rolls


Music is pretty magical, don't you think? I hope you have some time to listen.

Better than a soundtrack for my life, which I often wish would just suddenly appear. Such a great idea. Big love to you.

Reem,
now that's edu-tainment! i enjoy this idea and actually it would be cool if you do this sort of musical-day-in-the-life more often. you have a good handle on sound, we can learn from it.
