I haven't been feeling like myself the last few days. You know that feeling, no energy, scattered thoughts. I can't quite put my finger on the source. It may simply be due to the time of year, worry about my father's health, a death in the family last week or a combination of many things.
After doing some work early this morning, I decided to check in with Twitterverse. There is ALWAYS something or someone there to make me smile. Today I found music. Friends sharing their favorite songs. My friend and favorite Blip.fm DJ, João , who has introduced me to music I've never heard and all of it fun. Another from Canada with the most eclectic taste in music of anyone I know, including myself. My friend Martin James from Scotland, who composes, plays and sings his own music. It's haunting and beautiful. Take a listen, you won't be sorry.
As I sat and listened, I noticed that I was feeling lighter. The cloud was lifting and the chair-dancing had begun. Before I knew it, I was up and dancing around the room to Kings of Leon - Sex on Fire. And smiling :-)
Music has such an effect on me. When I want to get myself moving, I listen to HOWL by Florence and the Machine. To mellow down easy, Ottmar Liebert . So, tell me please, what song, music, melody lifts your spirits or lifts you from your chair to send you danceing around the room. I know you all do it :-)
