Twittering Tales: A Midnight Storm

A Midnight Storm

These dark reflections.

Storm clouds gather on a
midnight tear through
San Francisco.

He wants the storm to last
forever; he wants to be
hidden and faceless: dead
without dying.

Song A Day, Second Round – Day 1

Pure wow! from A Momma’s View

A Momma's View

It’s the second round in the Song A Day Challenge for me and this time I got invited by Rob, whose blog Art By Rob Goldstein is truly amazing. I truly enjoyed the last “run” as it makes me think about the music I like to listen to and also why I do like the songs that much.

The rules are:

  • Post a song a Day for five consecutive days
  • Post what the lyrics mean to you ( optional)
  • Post the name of the song and video 
  • Nominate two different bloggers each day of the challenge.

The song I’m sharing today is “special” because it’s one of the songs my daughter danced to in her dance school and I loved watching the girls expressing their feelings through dance. So now, every time I hear this song it puts a smile on my face and I remember how my daughter moved…

5 Day Music Challenge, Day 2: Blowing up Fish

Thanks to Danica from Living the Beautiful Life for nominating
me for the Five-Day Music challenge.

The rules are:

Post a song a day for five consecutive days.

Post what the lyrics mean to you.  (Optional)

Post the name of the song and video

Nominate two (or one) different blogger each day of the challenge

For the challenge, I decided to focus on how I first became aware of music and to describe over the next five days how my taste in music broadened and changed.

I met my best friend James one August day in 1969 at Colonial Lake.

It was a hot and muggy and all the fish in the lake died.

James was lighting up Cherry Bombs and tossing them into the lake.

When I asked why, he said he was ‘blowin’ up’ the fish’.

I laughed and asked where he got his black eye.

He said he got in a fight that morning at school and decide to cut out.

I told him I almost got shot the night before ‘cause I really did.

“You almost got shot!” I could see I had his respect. “What did you do?”

“Scream.” I answered. Then we laughed an’ blew up some more fish and
became best friends.

James and I ran with Charleston’s hippies.

Here are some of the songs we played:

The Who – I Can See For Miles

Tomorrow Never Knows – The Beatles

Cream – Strange Brew

 

The Mamas & the Papas  – Look Through My Window

 

Donovan – Sunshine Superman

 

Hair – Walking In Space
