JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 15 so happy together

15 Jan
{joyful noise}

Joy has me asking lots of questions this year. Like what is joy vs. happiness? Is joy bigger and bolder? Is happiness sweeter and more kind?

I’m not sure what the answer is, to be honest, but it had me look up happy songs. Why not?

So here it is… the Top 20 ‘Happy’ Songs of All Time. Here are a few samples.

What are your happy songs?

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 311 :: christmas music

7 Nov
{song}

Tonight, while driving home, Christmas music began playing out of my iPhone that was hooked up to the car speakers. It seemed like a bit of a jumpstart to the season. Too early.

And yet, so perfectly timed.

I began thinking about the spirit of Christmas. The kindness that goes hand and hand with peace and joy. And it made me wish that Christmas really was ALL year long.

Peace and joy.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 41 :: the kind of music

11 Feb

That makes you laugh. 

There is music all around tonight. Waftng through the walls from the record player. It’s our new “toy” even though it’s vintage.

Graceland is playing right now.

But the best part of the night was (again) Footloose.

And possibly the fact that I apparently have NO ideas what the lyrics are, or how they relate to the entire song. See real lyrics below:

My lyrics – the ones that sent Justin into hysterical laughter, amounted to:

“Been working so hard
I’m driving my car”

And that’s when I found out that there is no “car” or “driving” in the song. I think I have realized this before and yet, when something gets lodged deep into your brain it is so hard to get it out.

So Footloose will probably always be a song about driving in my car – to me. And that’s okay. Because I’m just being KIND to my mind.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 30 :: music to my ears

30 Jan

Work. Out.

I found myself at the gym tonight on the elliptical machine. It was made “fun” by an old playlist labeled “jamie’s workout”. I accidentally stumbled upon it on a recently charged iPod.


The music was a smattering of songs from my past. The angry ones were from my divorce era. The happy ones from college. The girly ones from my twenties.

It was a KIND way to workout. A sort of time machine. A reminder of where I have been and WHO I have been all based on the beat of the songs of the times.

Now that I have an Apple Watch tracking my every move I know that playlist was worth 300 calories burned. But, in my heart, that playlist is worth so much more. Music to my ears. Memories to my heart.

Kindness to my soul.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 327 :: echelon effect

29 Nov

Day 327: Sweet sounds.

This music found me again today… and I forgot how much I love it. The Echelon Effect.

My favorite is Season Part 4:

Re-finding this music has me thinking about the power of sweet sounds. A meditation of sorts. A calming way to unwind. A yoga of the mind.

Namaste, Sweet Sounds. Namaste.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 344 :: bliss-fa la la la la

14 Dec

Today’s bliss…music. 

As I sit here tonight working and listening to The Voice and waiting for Adele I am struck by the simple truth of music. It moves. It is magic.

And it’s something I don’t really do…all that well. I mean, of course I have some shining moments in the shower or driving in my car – in private – who doesn’t? But I am SO in awe of those who can sing, really sing. It’s amazing to me, the good vibrations with just a few vocal chords. 

And it seems not so ironic that it’s that time of year. When people sing out loud. Carol door to door. Sing a happy tune.  And share a vibe of bliss. 

‘Tis the season.
For the most wonderful sound of year. 

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 63 :: bang bang pop pop

4 Mar
No strawberry pancakes this morning.

Justin actually woke up and asked, “Who is going to make me pancakes?” He was looking directly at me. I guess he had a point.

But, I did find a few “good” reasons to feel “good” today: I went back to Pilates — first time in over a month! My body is aching but it was worth it. Funny how so many things that hurt in the moment are best for the long run.

And I also found a new favorite song as I worked over my computer:
Bang Pop by Free Energy.
Overheard on my Spotify channel Ready For The Day.

Highly recommend. It’s catchy. Fun. Poppy. But it gets my head bouncing as I get ready to work… even without strawberry pancakes.

Bang. Bang. Pop. Pop.
Bliss.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 281 :: friday moments

10 Oct

Need a little lift? Meet The Echelon Effect

I find it both calming and invigorating to listen to (and to work to).

Perfect for a Friday afternoon of peak performing before the weekend gets here.

Speaking of the weekend…Happy weekend to you!  What moments will you create this weekend? What moments will you remember?

More tomorrow. 
Lovemore,
Jamie
