Muse and Music

I have always loved music. All kinds of music (uh, okay… you can hold the heavy metal selections; not too hot about those 😆 ). I think there’s just something magical about how words + melody + feelings all combine perfectly to express what otherwise lies hidden, unexpressed, inside the soul. (Which makes me curious: does music play a huge part in your life too? Or can you live without it?)

Luckily, my hubby is a music fanatic too, and so are my sons, one of whom introduced me to this latest vid… an introduction which was really timely because as soon as the drum appeared (watch it and you’ll know what I mean), my creative muse stood up and started dancing, and now I’m on a creative roll! Wheeeee!

So here ya go, enjoy this very cool vid (and the awesome music that it brings) and excuse me as I go indulge in my creative whims! See you in a bit!

PS. While we’re rockin’,  here’s another one of my all-time favorites!


… and be amazed. This girl makes me proud to share my country with her. 😀

PS. Man, it has been silent here for a long time! It’s great to break through the crickets chirping in the garden!

i’m back ʞɔɐq ɯ,ı i’m back ʞɔɐq ɯ,ı  i’m back ʞɔɐq ɯ,ı… I! AM! BACK! Wheeeeee!
