this week, our prompt is continuing the music theme, and I like that I found so many good, really good videos this week because of thinking about the prompt... like Angelina Jordan... truly amazing talent
"do you have a favorite musical style? For fun: what kind of music
calms you, makes you want to dance, or stimulates you creatively? "
You know what? these are my favorites, yours may and will differ from mine, and it's OKAY to have different viewpoints!
I feel I need to spell that out these days... now on with the show...
why did I ask this question??!! I like so many styles!
> BossaNova anytime I want to create, or relax... interesting huh?
songsters: Antonio Jobim Astrud Gilberto, Stan Getz
>1970's Often played while DH and I are cooking
>Jazz which can be torch singers or musicians such as Vince Gueraldi for Charlie Brown
songsters: steve winwood, Dave Brubeck (ex: fave one here) Carlos Santana, George Benson
>Musical Theater I sing along to so many songs from stage productions. My audition song was often Ain't Misbehavin' by Fats Waller, or
songsters: Cole Porter, Sondheim,. George Gershwin
>and last but not least for sure, vintage songs especially from the 1940's and 50''s. I like the rhythm (we swing dance) and sentamentality or playfulness of the words
Songsters: Doris Day, Glenn Miller
notably missing from my world, country, rap, classical except for some arias from operas. I associate a lot of classical music with having to play piano for 10 years as a child, and now a lot of it depresses me.
and yes, I know many of you love those genre's..... this is merely my list, what's your favorite genre?
in honor of singing.... this very charming guitarist asks random people to sing with him, and then how it felt to sing before they started and after... so cool
I don't know, but I could watch this mama and quadruplets all day long
what an important song for us right now... we can see value in others and allow for individuals to have different opinions but still get along and compromise.
just an opinion
"There ain't no good guy, there ain't no bad guyThere's only you and me and we just disagree"
I never feel safe nowadays, I dream of a day when people use their energy and talents to help the collective, to enhance our lives, who focus on healthy and happiness and respect.
I've been sewing and painting this week for my creativity outlet. I'm writing stories in my head but can't concentrate well so haven't typed them out yet. More on Saturday's creativity round-up post
I have had this indoor plant, a Shefflera for years but it started to fail, and get something sticky on the leaves...
best I can tell I have to order Neem oil to treat it, blast it with water to clean it, repot it with fresh soil, and hope for the best. At what point does a person just say it's not worth all that? I don't know... so it's sitting out on the porch to try to heal itself at the moment
|Milo's outdoor toy box|
we've had a lot of rain recently, and dh put some hardy grass plugs in our yard... fingers crossed they "take" and spread as well as the crabgrass does
Milo here.... I like to stand by Mama while she pecks away at whatever she does at the table. I lean really hard and move around til she drops her arm to finally, pet me!
I mean, why does she wait? I'm so pettable! And it's a reminder of how much I love her, and will do what I can to protect her. Mama, that includes from invaders by barking, barking when the wine cork pops, and the daddy when he's in the kitchen.
Mama: welllllll the Daddy in the kitchen is generally a GOOD thing baby
Milo: well, ya never know....
now sit! stay! and visit mama's friends to see what music they like and what they liked this week
