MY DAY: Sail on, Silvergirl

I very rarely have music playing once lessons are over and I have time to myself to write, research, read, and spend time with my four pooches.

Last Friday, for some strange reason, I turned on my iTunes on my iPhone and pulled up my playlist, DLJH’s Favorite Songs. It’s really not a playlist of my favorites but songs that offer something entirely different to reflect or recharge.

The music continued until… now.

The television or streaming sites on my computers have not run since last Friday and I have absolutely no idea what is going on in the world as there has been no news, and not even any of my beloved documentaries, “Andy Griffith Show,” “All In The Family,” or “Two and A Half Men.”

It’s been refreshing, actually. My brain feels more stimulated and I am sensing more energy. I’ll explore this a bit more.

When I have to work in the kitchen I generally listen to presidential podcasts to pass the time and to help me rise above my dismal feeling toward cooking. However, since Friday, I’ve had music playing. I am liking it all the more.

Tonight after teaching, I made a huge pot of potato soup like Mother made it. One of the songs with which I grew up, Simon and Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” pulled up on my playlist but it was a beautiful arrangement by musical theatre actor John Barrowman and female with a lovely voice.

While I loved this version I felt it belonged to so many family, friends, and acquaintances who are riding the waves of hell.

This is for you, my friends!

Sail on silver girl
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine
Oh, if you need a friend
I’m sailing right behindLike a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind

To all my silver girls and boys, know you are loved…
