Sentiments We Long To Hear

I’ve been haunted by these lyrics, this music for days. It’s my current earworm.  Simple words set to an easy, pleasant tune. Sentiments that we all long to hear….

Lyrics written by Drew Pearson and Greg Holden, Performed by Phillip Phillips
Hold on to me as we go
As we roll down this unfamiliar road
And although this wave is stringing us along
Just know you’re not alone
‘Cause I’m going to make this place your home
Settle down, it’ll all be clear
Don’t pay no mind to the demons, they fill you with fear
The trouble it might drag you down
If you get lost, you can always be found
Just know you’re not alone
‘Cause I’m going to make this place your home
[instrumental]
Settle down, it’ll all be clear
Don’t pay no mind to the demons, they fill you with fear
The trouble it might drag you down
If you get lost, you can always be found
Just know you’re not alone
‘Cause I’m going to make this place your home
[instrumental]

A Simply Beautiful Stroll

Feeling beckoned by the cool air that whispered promises of fall, I decided to put the business of slaying task dragons on hold this morning and go for a walk. It was simply beautiful.

 “In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.”  – John Muir

On This Rainy Day

“I am sure it is a great mistake always to know enough to go in when it rains.  One may keep snug and dry by such knowledge, but one misses a world of loveliness.”
