At first, I was going to list songs I wish/hope my blog represents surviving; overcoming adversity in its many forms; growing stronger; gaining self-confidence and self-awareness, and becoming a warrior. The messages of these songs are often dreams, not reality as blog and I seek focus, balance, and purpose.
What could be a theme song be, then, that reflected where this blog has been (rather than where I hope its going)? Strange ideas float around: ironic; nonsensical; eccentric and eclectic. Some songs contain a verse or a line that seems appropriate. How many songs (and tech savvy) would it take to mash-up a theme song when the snippets range from the depression era “Yes, We Have No Bananas,” to Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb”?
What theme song (or mash-up) do you think would fit this blog? Be honest; consider the good, the bad, and the ugly that has appeared here. I’m really interested to find what’s left in my “suggestion box.”
Til, then, tap out rhythms, belt lyrics, and experience the full range music brings into our lives: expression of joy and sorrow; therapy and healing; mirror of our lives; release of angst and raising our spirits. Here’s to the healing power of music; may it bring you joy, self-expression, distraction, motion, and peace.
