I grew up in a family that loves music. With a Dad who used to take me to the symphony, with a brother who has perfect pitch and who introduced me to my first mixed tape and a Mom who has sung in choirs her entire life. Music has always been a part of me. I sing, but that mainly (sadly) happens in the shower nowadays.
There are songs that I could listen to on repeat for hours and sometimes it feels like I need hours worth of distraction from the loud room at work. The problem with those songs is that they make me think a lot, so that’s distracting when I should be thinking about work.
There a song I’ve been listening to, it’s by a Jewish artist that I was introduced to this summer, Josh Nelson. It’s called L’Dor Vador (from generation to generation). I could honestly listen to it all day. I don’t know why – it just resonates with my life right now.
I also don’t know why I chose to write about this today – probably because I’ve had my headphones in all morning and this is what I am thinking about while eating lunch. …And maybe because I just want to know what you’re listening to right now. Tell me, please – I need some new music in my life.
In other news, if I was with her today, I’d sing a loud, hearty, hairbrush as my microphone rendition of Happy Birthday. Happy Birthday, Jess. I don’t see you NEARLY enough, but I think about you always and miss you LOTS. Hope today is perfection. Xx.
