Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 30th day of March, 2014.

“SAY SOMETHING” by A Great Big World and Miss Kristina Aguilera ….

It is my favourite song ….

One of the best songs ever written.

I love the lyrics …. the melody.

The piano …. I feel each key as it is being touched.

Each word ……

It always makes me cry.

There are some songs that just tug at your heart strings.

They make you think.

They make you feel.

It touches my core ….. my heart …. my soul.

This is one of those songs.

I love it.

I love it so much.

Thank you to these artists for bringing this song to me.

I downloaded it from iTunes and have listened to it about ten times in a row.

I love it so much.

Thank you again.

Today is the day to listen to your favourite song.

Really listen to the words and feel the music.

Happy Sunday everyone…..

Say something ……

Special Hello to:  to all those people who can sing …… and to those who try ……

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

It is overcast here in Edmonton but quite mild outside.


Are you a music lover?

Do you get a song in your head and then it just won’t go away?

Do you have an absolute favourite song or perhaps top ten?

Do you think you know the lyrics only to find out that you were singing them improperly for thirty years?

Do you like only one genre of music or them all?

Do you listen to music in every spare moment of every day?

Do you listen to music to relax?

Do you listen to music to elevate your mood?

Do you listen to music to start or end your day?

Do you listen to the radio?

Do you sing?

Does a certain song remind you of a person, time or place?

Does music soothe the savage beast?  (Ok, this really doesn’t belong on this list but I love that line, LOL.)

Do you buy music in a store or on-line?

Do you compare your life to the lyrics of a song?


Music, plays such an integral part of our lives.

Whether your favourite is easy listening, new age, holiday, opera, country, folk, classic, hip hop, rock and roll, or blues ….. music is the tool in our lives that we use to join us together, keep us apart, soothe us and elevate us.  It is not only the words but the melody that can impact us in so many ways.  Think about your favourite song and what it means to you.  Remember your first kiss and what was playing on the radio.  Remember when you got married or perhaps prom.  Remember when you had your first break-up?  Remember when you lost a loved one and the songs that they played at the service.  Through every stage of our lives music plays a role.


I love music.  All genres.


Have a great day.

Gotta go.


Always, Carol and Alvin


Special Hello to: all those musicians all over the world.
