Singing Aloud (Allowed)

When I am by myself and feeling just a wee bit uptight, and sad, I sing.

My favorite place for singing is when I am driving in the car, the tension starts to disappear and by the end of a few old favorite numbers, I am feeling calm and a tad more cheerful. Try this one( you need to see a few clouds when you're singing this)
then sing along with this, it truly does help, I promise.

This singing business has increased somewhat lately, and I was thinking to myself, as I climbed out of the car to take these pictures

while I was on my way to complete a small job for the day,

that this month of January has for the most part been pretty awful, and I am not just thinking about my own little corner of the world, but thinking globally of all the things that have happened in the last few weeks.

I shall be very pleased to welcome February in, maybe with this one.

Oh Sally. Good grief those are gorgeous photos. Really, i am stopped in my tracks. I've been meaning to reply to your letter, i'm sorry to take so long. Feel better okay,yes to february, and if singing makes you feel better than sing out loud all day long!

i can't wait for you to get your new camera, i am terribly envious.

Surely views like that must also help? January hasn't been has really been a case of small steps/one foot in front of the other...but I am just like you on the singing front - when my boyfriend and I split before Christmas I was surprised to find how often I sung on my walk home to distract and comfort myself...powerful remedy... :) xxx

I love Joni Mitchell, she's beautiful. I hope you feel better soon. You deserve to be celebrated and congratulated for being an amazing person and for all you give to others.
