the heart of life is good.

music inspires me. it inspires my work.
my moods. my life.
i am huge into lyrics.
sometimes i'm in the mood
for sad. heartbreaking.
sometimes happy, cheery,
sometimes, deep, sometimes light.
always something different.
when something catches my ear,
i play it

a few weeks ago
i started listening to
john mayer's music again
{i've always been a fan,
since back in the
'boy next door' years}
seems to get
the most.
i just really love it.
it made me cry every day last week.
seriously, every day.
i needed it. it was really good.
from, the heart of life is good.

"I hate to see you cry
laying there in that position
there's things you need to hear
so turn off your tears and listen

pain throws you heart to the ground
love turns the whole thing around
no, it won't all go the way, it should
but I know the heart of life is good..."

now, i'm feeling so much better,
totally inspired
and absolutely happy, happy.
so, now, i'm listening to
ingrid michaelson.
so many sweet songs
and lyrics.
if you haven't heard her, take a listen...
{side note: her brother is my son's substitute high school math teacher, mr. michaelson}.

i also love this video
from nevershoutnever.
such a great message.
old or new.
i love to listen.
