Now we're old, so we Take it Easy. Definitely not the New Kid in Town anymore. But, it's a Peaceful, Easy Feeling to know that Love Will Keep Us Alive.
Ok, enough. Music is really in my soul, and I've been getting my music organized and doing plenty of singing along lately. It really has been a busy month, and I can put those ear buds in and really escape with my favorite music. I've even found that I walk on a treadmill better with good music on rather than watching the tube. I've been doing some reading on stress/anxiety relief, and when I read about escaping with music for awhile, it hit home. It's not surprising, really, I've always found great comfort in the music I choose to listen to. I think I've just gotten away from it somewhat over the years of raising kids. But listening to music that I loved as a teenager makes me realize what an escape it was even back then. A calming escape. Maybe that's part of the appeal of the music from those young days. People say those days are carefree, but I think being a teenager is very stressful, and music is just one way to escape.
I can't believe we are almost through September already. I've put the Trellis doily away for now, and have a few more booked weekends before I will get back to any projects. Showers, weddings, state park trips and other gatherings have us on The Long Run until mid-October.
I am Desperado to have some free time One of These Nights.
