2014 BLOG – DAY 70 :: songs to make you feel alive

11 Mar

So, do you need something to whistle to?

I recommend this beat-thumping, lip-whistling tune from Michael Franti. I am course late to the party, it came out last year, but I love it!

And, it couldn’t come at a better time. They are going to insert needles into my boob in about twelve hours.

Hump Day just became Bump Day.

That’s because my breasts are so small they are barely bumps, and my sister teased me mercilessly about it growing up. In a way that only a big sister with big breasts can do.

I think my bumps were also referred to as mosquito bites. As in, “Do you need a Band-Aid for that?”

I do love my small boobs. They are so convenient for yoga class and were an asset for running up and down the basketball court.

But I have to admit, I have briefly dreamed of a life with really big breasts. What would it be like to swing them to and fro? I don’t know…

But I know this. My sister informed me last week that her breasts have increased in size with age in the last few years. Since we don’t live in close proximity to each other I can’t confirm this as a scientific fact, but I can say this: there is hope that mine might grow too!

Regardless, I am happy with my two little bumps. They have served me well and I expect much more from them.

So… I am singing this song to remind each of them that they are alive (before they get drilled with a needle tomorrow)!

In the words of Mr. Franti:

Life sound like
I’m alive! I’m alive! I’m alive!
I’m alive! I’m alive! I’m alive!
This is what is sounds like
Ohhhhhhhhhhhh I’m Alive!

Need more tunes to make you feel alive?

More tomorrow.

Day 271: f*ing friday :: farewell

28 Sep

Today continues the weekly series, F*ing Fridays, which will coincidentally occur on Friday. In Year One, I mentioned some of my favorite F words back on Day 5, including: Fearless, Fabulous, Fine, Fun, Faith, Freedom, Forgiveness, to name a Few.

Last week I dove into the words Freeway Fright.

Today’s F*ing Friday is dedicated to the word:

As in, until we meet again. 

Today was my last day on Martha’s Vineyard for the season.

As I walked to the boat to board the ferry, the skies opened up and began to cry. It poured rain.

And then I looked down at the sidewalk and saw a heart shining up at me, reflecting light of the cloudy sky, formed in of the puddles on the street.

It felt like the final sign. A little reminder of love in the middle of the long goodbye to summer. Until we meet again.

It made me remember that song from college that we always sang:

Friends we are
And friends we’ll always be
We’ll meet again
Returning faithfully
Cottey friends
We’ll always be
Until the end of time

Farewell Summer. Goodbye Martha’s Vineyard. 
Until we meet again.
