30 things: Day 15

Day 15 - put your iPod on shuffle and list the first 10 songs that come on.

I have to admit, I am excited and scared of this all at once. I <3 my iPod and I have a LOT of music on there, but you never know what might pop up. :) This might be funnay! Here we go...

99 Problems by Jay-Z (aaahahaha!!!)
If It Kills Me by Jason Mraz
Let's Make a Night to Remember by Bryan Adams (a favorite!)
I'm A Slave 4 U by Britney Spears (damnit!! I'm outted I was hoping she wouldn't show up)
Fortune Faded by the Red Hot Chili Peppers
San Francisco Bay Blues by Eric Clapton
Sun Will Rise by Edwin McCain
Chocolate High by India Arie
Breakaway by Kelly Clarkson
Early in the Morning by BB King & Van Morrison

Somehow, none of my country or Swiss Alps music turned up...ah, oh well.

30 things: Day 14

Day 14 - a picture of you and your family.

I'm at odds with a few of them now. Entitlement and selfishness are at the heart of the current conflict, but none the less, our picture(s) remain.

I must...

A musician must make music,
an artist must paint, a poet must write,
if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself.
What a man can be, he must be.

~ Abraham Maslow

I can be more. I must be. I'm not meant to just be this that I've settled into for the last few years. I can be happy. I must be. I can surrond myself by people who actually deserve my time, my energy, my effort, and my smiles. I can come home to a "home" where there is peace, and love, and comfort and not strife, hate, and discontent. I'm going to be more "selfish" and by that I mean that I am just going to love me more than I have before. I can. I must.

May 5, 2011

Driving down a frontage road in between Big Spring, TX and Colorado City, TX, I was belting out this tune while peeling and orange with the windows down and the sunroof back. That's was Cinco De Mayo my lil' American style.

I thank god for my life
And for the stars and stripes
May freedom forever fly
Let it ring.
Salute the ones who died
The ones that give their lives so we
Dont have to sacrifice
All the things we love.

~ Zac Brown Band
