On a complete whim last week, I made a carpe diem decision. I hit the pause button on obligations and deadlines and traveled to the mountains.
I followed my heart to Colorado and relished my favorite songs like Let’s Be Still (The Head and the Heart) and Flightless Bird (Iron & Wine) under the most amazing starry night of the summer of 2014. The sound was pure perfection in Mother Nature’s amphitheater.
I think a mere song can be classified as an artful masterpiece. Some songs speak my language and pierce my soul. Perhaps I put too much value on this art form. But maybe not if you agree with these observations…
“If music be the food of love, play on.” – William Shakespeare
“Where words fail, music speaks.” – Hans Christian Andersen
“Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel.
Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel.”
- Hunter S. Thompson
In the rhythm of the week I also found the motivation to re-love my old J.Crew t-shirt (it had a large hole on a front seam making it too shabby to donate but too endearing to toss). Without further ado…
I hope this pillow inspires you to up-cycle!
But my wish for you? Seize the day, my friends, seize the day.
Tune in to the ordinary and make your days extraordinary.
