“Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it a rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul”
My #1 go-to when my outlook begins turning a’funky?
Playing music that brings me back to a happy place and time.
Today, watching a video from 2011 of my dear class of South Korean kindergartners perform James Taylor’sHow Sweet it is to be Loved by You, shook the funk right off. One of my favorite songs by a favorite artist, topped with 20 little booty-shaking bundles of joy that all hold a special place in my heart.
First song on the new uke…I’ve only been playing for about 3 weeks now, after a couple of friends encouraged me to get one…so pleeeeease forgive me. So far I love it. I grew up surrounded by music, love music…so it feels good to make my own music, bringing some extra joy into my lil studio and my Korean life.
I promise I’ll get better with time.
“Tied Down” is a great song by Colbie Caillatt. She is an artist from Newbury Park and Malibu, CA (near Ventura) and she pops in local Ventura wateringholes from time to time for surprise gigs. Her songs are pretty damn cool, lyrics and music.
