I feel like a spinnin' top or a dreidel
As well I feel like a teenager sprawled on the floor, listening to a song that says it for me! I suspect I'm being a bit harsh with myself. However before I say even more, this song blurts it out it for me today. If I was a better Christian I'd be quoting Scripture, to which I return daily.
This is the best recorded version I could find without uploading one of my iTunes tracks to some external site. Why is it so hard to upload a sound file to these blogs ANYways? So you get a static photo but the best recording by one of the best songwriters of the last 100 years. I covered this song when I sang with my Seattle trio OWL and could get lost in the angst for those few minutes... with only 2 guitars and keyboards!
We had fun.
There's a huge sea change going on and I'm still trying to navigate it not to mention write about it. This is a cherished spot for me to be real. I shall be articulate as well as I can as soon as I am able. Prayers are RECEIVED, blessed ones!
It's the 4th of July today. Go out and wave a sparkler, put on your 1950's best, eat hot dogs and potato salad and ENJOY this day for all the reasons you can. Including because you have it.
