Have you ever had a time in your life when wonderful, fun, and enlightening things all start happening at the same time, and it sweeps you up in a whirlwind of living? Yup…that’s happening right now! I feel like I’ve done and accomplished so much in the last three months….for others AND for myself. So much has been packed into such a short period of time! I have a new niece and a new nephew, I’ve been to NY more this month than the last 2 years combined, I got to attend the NYC Vegetarian Food Festival (post to come), I’ve said yes to some pretty crazy adventures, I’ve reconnected with some family and old friends, and I’ve met people that make me feel good about being me….how can you really top all of that? The only downside (if you can even call it that) to being out and about living life so fully is that my blogging has been slacking. But I’m looking at it this way: all of these adventures will make for FANTASTIC blog posts when I finally get the chance to sit down and write them! =)
Another great thing that has resurfaced this past week is my singing/playing…I made my first YouTube video in over 2 years! Sure, I could have covered 100 songs in that time, but I just wasn’t inspired. Why do something if you aren’t doing it fully? Yes, I make the videos for others to see, but it has to start with me. If I’m not inspired, I can’t bring myself to work on something and record it. All of these wonderful things happening in other parts of my life breathed new inspiration into music, and I have such a desire to sit and play/sing all the time! Feels really good to be back!
Here’s my new video, a cover of “When I Was Your Man” by Bruno Mars. He is an incredibly soulful singer, and this song really hit me in a way that I couldn’t pass up trying it. Hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed making it!
