And still I rise.

On the Go: I See Fire by Ed Sheeran

Leave a comment

If you didn’t know, Ed Sheeran is probably one of the most underrated artists out there. He is so talented that my soul weeps for the lack of attention his music receives.

This song is from the soundtrack of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (I always want to pronounce that as Smee). I paid $5 to Amazon to rent the movie because Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman were in it together – my favorite British Bros (Sorry Professor X and Magneto)!

While listening to the music at the end, I heard the sweet, sweet voice of Ed singing and I about fell off my couch. I have a soft spot for epic movie soundtracks (for example, Breath of Life by Florence & the Machine from Snow White and the Hunstman and Young and Beautiful by Lana Del Rey from The Great Gatsby).

Listen and tell me this isn’t as epic as epic gets!

I wonder if I could create an Epic Songs station on Pandora?

One a Day: Song

Sunshine

I will never hold you
Never count your perfect toes
Smooth down your sweet tresses
Or kiss your wrinkled nose

I won’t call you baby
Won’t kiss away your pain
I will never hold you
Watch you fall asleep again

You were my sunshine
I miss you like sunshine
I called you my sunshine
I love you little sunshine

I won’t watch you grow
Or worry about your safety
I’ve lost all my hope
Of calling you my baby

My sweet perfect gift
For your happiness I pray
One last gentle kiss
Before they take you away

You were my sunshine
I miss you like sunshine
I called you my sunshine
I love you little sunshine

One a Day: Rispetto

We used to tend roses

lovingly with our hands

Now instead he closes

wounds of his fellow man

 

How quick our time ended

This life – held suspended

in the grip of dreamers

and the hearts of grievers

One a Day: Acrostic

Shadow

Sneaking down corridors,
Hallways filled with mystery
All the fears of my childhood
Down the creaking staircase, lay
Oh, to find my way out of this
Winding, spooky, haunted house!

My intern is back. Thank all the Saints in Heaven! Maybe now, some work can actually be done.

I don’t know if I can do this everyday….sheesh!

Watched an episode of Psych and Scandal that made me happy. And I posted some of my story up and got some positive feedback. I felt great!
