Music Tuesdays

Life is so busy sometimes.
People just walk by and don't listen even though there's noise all around us.
Right now I hear the tip tap of the keyboard.
I hear my sister flipping through a page in her book.
I hear the air conditioning silently humming.
I hear the sound of coffee being consumed.
I'm listening, and there is so much to hear.
So, today, along with pictures, I thought I'd give you the gift of music.
Good music.
Music you may or may not have heard of before.
I think even today, people listen to music without listening to music.
They put on whatever is popular and catchy and in.
Today, I'm going to enlighten you with a mix of different songs.
New and Old.
I'm going to ask you to take some time and listen to it today.
Music is created for one sole purpose:
To be listened to.
So do that.

    Right now I hear the sound of a lawnmower-the landscape guys are tending the grounds at work today. I also hear the murmur of voices in my boss' office. I hear the buzz of office computers. I hear my favorite co-worker, a 67 year old guy, drinking coffee. I hear my new shoes squeak when I walk.

    Makes me think of the movie August Rush. Ever seen it?
