Pursue

PURSUE

We pursue happiness by any means we can

Sometimes a delicious aroma cooking in a pan

Perhaps it’s a twinkle in another person’s eyes

Although we may find it in sparkling starlit skies

A lovely piece of music can move us to the core

Carrying us across a crowded ballroom floor

Sitting with a loved one before a roaring fire

Nothing more, something simple all that we require

Happiness fills you up, all the dark spaces are now gone

Pursue a little happiness to lighten up your soul

Leaving you feeling completely relaxed and whole

 

Buses and Trains Bachelor Girl November Songs

 

A light hearted fun song about falling under a bus, hit by a train, sunk at sea, but doing it again.

Innocent fun enjoyable pain

Young enough to do it again

Oh what heavenly delight

Rebound with all your might

Although it’s possible to get knocked down

It’s like winning the triple crown

You never told me about any of this

It certainly is heavenly bliss

I often hear  “you are a true original”.   What does that mean?  Does that imply one of a kind, or  borderline crazy/genius?

Originality is to some extent dependent on your experiences and length of time on earth.  For example, I see hairstyles, fashion, even recipes that were popular when I was a young child, being revisited and making a comeback.  I could go into detail but that would seriously  “date” me.

When I consider a lifetime of music, singers, movies and songs, there are a few  that really stand out as the epitome of a “true original”.  Elvis Presley’s style, songs, and the tone of his voice probably the most famous example.  He lives on in the hearts and minds of many and anyone that could compare to Elvis, would still only be a copy, the original is gone.  Adele’s voice, songs and style is another example of originality.  I’m sure you could add a variety of examples yourself.

The music industry has over the last few years been experiencing a rehash, redo, make-over of something original.  For several years artists have been singing songs from the 70’s and 80’s with a twist to make them “current”.  Recently I’ve witnessed a number of artists revisiting songs from the 20’s through the 60’s and this genre is gaining ground.  A “spin” has also been added to these songs .  Does the “spin” added to these songs make them an original or simply a changed copy, a version of the original?

There are a few “free thinkers” in the process of changing our outlook on renewable energy, with exciting forays into original and or improved design.  Tesla’s innovative gigafactory is an astounding and dramatic example and one worthy of serious consideration.  Of course, we’ve already heard about the Tesla electric sedans and suv’s which are the forerunner of a push into moving away from fuel based cars.

Original thinking is considered “thinking outside the box”.  Something you hear all too often in the market-place, in advertising, or in product sales.

With all those wonderful examples to choose from, I choose you!  You the reader of this blog, are an original!  There will never be another exactly like you.  Not in style, thought, size or shape.  In reality then, “you are the true original.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Unique and special

Music to Love

By now, everyone has heard Hello by Adele.  I’ve been enthralled and drawn to her music because of the spectacular quality in her voice which is both unique and special. There have been others with that undefinable “something” in their voice that drew us to them. Most notable, Elvis Presley.

What makes Adele so special is her ability to take on the “organized” if you will, sound music has today.  In so many instances you can literally change out the singer and the sound remains the same.

Not with Adele.  She didn’t go “mainstream” but chose to write and deliver her music, her way!  I applaud her for her courage, bravery, and belief in herself.   You certainly can’t deny the results.  Her records have sold in the millions.

If you’re like me, you have enjoyed the freshness, newness of her sound. I know I will continue to do so.
