17 Random Questions Tag.

YouTube is such a lovely way to fill time; but, I also really enjoy making silly videos myself. (Maybe that’s a holdover from my high school yearbook staff days…) So, I’m trying to get back into making videos and not just being part of the audience. You can check out my most recent video below and I would love to hear from those of you that are YouTubers! If you’d like to do the same tag that I did, you can find the tag questions just below the video.

Cheers, dearies!

Music has always been a major influence in my life. It is a huge player in my day to day mood, how I will react to a certain moment or situation, and so much else. I cannot even tell you how many moments would have been drastically different had a different song been playing or had different lyrics come to mind.

I know that this will sound rude to say, but I am not the type of person to be satisfied by just listening to whatever is playing on the radio or being featured on television shows and movies. Half the love that I have for music comes from the chase–searching out and finding music that I connect with in some significant way. Then, a small part of the enjoyment comes from sharing that music with others. Quite honestly, I do not think there will ever be a greater gift than music.

And then there is the completely indescribable feeling of having a song chase you. Pursue you and worms its’ way into your heart, with or without your conscious knowledge at the start. Maybe it is a song of your own creation that is begging to be recorded or written down. Maybe it is someone else’s song that connects with your heart song and sings your soul. Either way, it will be a beautiful connection when that song finds you and nothing else will ever quite be the same.

As an impromptu ode to some of the wonderful music that has touched my life, I will posting some of my favorite songs below and I would love it if readers would share some of theirs as well. Enjoy!
