It’s day 12 of the November Ultimate Blog Challenge. 12 days is actually a very short time but when you are counting, it feels like forever. I’m still up for the game. There’s only 18 days left. How hard can that be? When you’re having fun, time and words flow. If you’ve visited me before, you would know I have a regular jukebox in my head. It hasn’t played for quite awhile until today. When lifeI get too fast, the music stops. I’ve been slowing down this month, taking more time to languish and enjoy the coffee. My jukebox started up again today.

This morning Don McLean is singing in my head.

So, bye-bye, Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry
And them good ol’ boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye
Singin’, “This’ll be the day that I die
This’ll be the day that I die”

I have no control over what plays. It’s not like there’s a slot I can plug my quarter into. But whatever plays have been quite helpful and inspiring for my index card art.

I hope the music never dies.

  1. Interesting that when you get too busy, the music dies. It can even seem like breathing stops, muscles constrict, and life passes on by. No time like the present to change everything!

  2. Love this post so much! Great songs, wonderful art – thank you for sharing!
    I definitely hope the music never dies as well.

    Tina Turner is my neighbor, by the way. Well, not next door neighbor, but she lives in Switzerland, and I know where her house is – only about a 40 minutes’ drive away!
