Deep Thought of the Day: Music

“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’s How 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.

Enjoy! And remember, choose music, not funk.


Missing Swan Class…

I told them “do reallllly well so that when Elisa Teacher misses you, she can watch you sing and feel your love all the way in America forever and ever”…
And the time has come, that, yes, I watch the little munchkins and feel a yearn in my heart for Swan class (and South Korea 2010, dear dear chingus (friends) met in Seoul and now scattered over the globe, and kimchi.
