Song of the Day…

“Speak softly and carry a big stick.”

Sometimes in the heat of the moment I yell.  It’s as though I think the louder I say how I feel, the more my “opponent” will understand.  In past experiences this hasn’t proved effective.  Especially when it comes to matters of the heart.  You see, I like to talk about how I feel.  I need to talk about how I feel.  I’m not one of those silent mopers.  If I’m upset, I want you to know.  Not in a passive aggressive way; in a let’s sit down and talk kind of way. 

In my musical life, so to speak, I enjoy a more subtle approach.  Quiet, heartfelt words speak to me louder than someone screaming I LOVE YOU at the top of his lungs.  This song sneaks up on you as only true quirk can.  It’s softly beautiful and slowly draws you in.  It’s like a crush that creeps up on you out of nowhere.  Suddenly you find yourself looking at someone you’ve known for days/months/years and thinking you? 

They say once you meet your special someone your life is suddenly different; brand new.  As this hasn’t happened to me yet, I can only chose to believe this to be true.  Too bad I can’t carry even the slightest of a tune or I would be singing this song on that day, whenever it may be.

Happy listening!

Shanna - have you checked out "Anna Begins" by Counting Crows? Its about a guy falling in love and not being sure he's ready. But it melts you. Try it.
