Freedom song

I heard this song today called "Freedom Song" by Jason Mraz and in it the singer describes how he sings when he's happy. I find that ever since I started singing in choirs I no longer mind singing most any place where I feel the urge to sing. If I ever feel down or in need of encouragement singing helps me. It makes me feel like things will be all right somehow. Whether it's singing or something else, if I could wish something for everyone I'd wish everyone would always have something they could do that makes them feel happiest. I think it's a nice freedom to have something that attainable that people can do to help themselves feel happy. I hope that you can find at least one thing to do each day that makes you feel happiest! I wish everyone a very happy Wednesday and a very happy Thursday to come.

What I want too.

"To simply wake up every morning a better person than when I went to bed." -Sidney Poitier

Although I don't think I'll ever magically wake up in the morning and be automatically a better person, I do feel that from now on I will seek to improve myself and my work so that I can in some ways be a better person than I was before. Even if I don't necessarily see the improvement right away, it feels good knowing that I have been working to make myself into a better person over time. So here's to self improvement and to the actor Sidney Poitier who is turning 91 today!

My favorite monument

Since it's President's Day, it got me thinking about how I liked going to see the monuments to the presidents in Washington, DC. They're especially nice when they're all lit up with bright lights at night. One of my favorite monuments is the Lincoln Memorial.  When my family and I would go to visit relatives in DC it was nice to go and see the monuments with them. I really like the Lincoln Memorial best. If you've never been to see it, it's this big temple-like memorial with a huge statue of Lincoln sitting on a chair in the middle of it and I think the Gettysburg Address is written on the wall  of the memorial I used to like to sit on the steps of the memorial and look out over the National Mall and people watch. Even if there were a lot of people visiting the memorial when we were there, somehow I always felt peaceful there somehow. Plus I liked learning about Lincoln in school, I always liked (and still like) learning about history. So when  I think about President's Day I think of that monument and  I feel happy!

I'm standing in front of the Lincoln Memorial with the Washington Monument in the background.  This picture was taken a few years back.

Just a song for everyone

I know that I've posted before about the song "What the World Needs Now." Just because I feel like there needs to be more love in the world I sang the song and I share it now here to send love to everyone.

Love bring courage

"Because of a great love, one is courageous."-Lao Tzu

To me love is all about courage. People we love give us courage to face each day and the courage we have allows us to express love to others. In that sense love is like a cycle that doesn't end. So I say keep the cycle going! be brave and love more!
