Maybe you've noticed, or maybe you haven't, that I've made several posts about music over the years, which is odd since I'm not very musically talented. I took piano lessons for several years during school, and I own my own piano, but--with all that--I'm still mediocre. Same goes for my singing voice. I'll belt it… Continue reading Poetry to a Tune
Today, I would like to continue on with the theme from two weeks ago, where I discussed the best quotes from The Chronicles of Narnia and some reasons why people love the Narnia quotes and stories. In that post, I talked about the general effect that Lewis' words have on individuals. Today, I would like… Continue reading Narnia in Song
It seems that Valentine's Day is the event which will resurrect my blog. Only, my blog wasn't dead...just hibernating for a little while. I've written a lot about Valentine's Day in the past. For example, I wrote about how much I love Valentine's Day. Another time, I wrote about mine and my sister's nerdy Valentine's… Continue reading 7 Lovely Love-Songs for Valentine’s Day
Yesterday, I got an email from my dad which includes a video of Audrey Assad singing her song "I Shall Not Want." I am very glad that I took the time to watch this video because--first--I've found a new favorite singer. In fact, I'm listening to her on Spotify right now. But I'll eventually buy… Continue reading I Shall Not Want
Last night, I dreamed that I got to attend a concert of three of my favorite musicians--Ben Rector, JJ Heller, and The Vespers. If you haven't heard of these artists, look them up and listen until you have all of their songs memorized (a method I often use). But if you have already heard of these artists,… Continue reading A Dream Concert
One my favorite artists, JJ Heller, keeps coming up with very sweet, lovely songs, and I feel like sharing a couple of them. This first one was posted around Valentine's Day. It's a cute love song written by her and her husband. I absolutely love it! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=640rMyZoV1o This next one was recorded and posted right… Continue reading JJ Heller’s Lovely Songs
This past week, I've had the same songs constantly playing through my mind. Ever since The Vespers released their new CD last week, I've been humming their music at work (which is not ideal, since I work in a library), dancing to it in the car, and even waking up with the lyrics stuck in my… Continue reading Some Dance-able New Music
Tomorrow's Christmas Eve, and I can hardly believe it. Christmas sort of crept up on me this year, so these past couple days I've been plugging in my Christmas tree lights whenever possible, and playing Christmas music at every available moment. I've realized that I don't have much time left to enjoy these things before… Continue reading Christmas Wishes!
Thank you to the blog, Raised Reading, for giving me this great and fun blog idea! The point of the game is to pick any letter from the alphabet and, using that letter, fill in your favorite book, author, etc. I am using the letter "L." How did I come up with this letter? Well, I… Continue reading Bookish Games ~ The Letter L!
I'm sad, everyone. Why? Well, because I've been neglecting my blog this past month. It couldn't be helped, though. I have been just plain B-U-S-Y. First, I transitioned from an old job to a new job, and the jobs were actually overlapping for a few weeks. Then I started an online class, so any extra… Continue reading And if the music is good, you dance.
