Musical Blessings – Aretha Franklin – Stream of Consciousness Saturday

Music is a language for the soul and Aretha Franklin sure knew how to belt it out. In celebration of the beautiful Queen of Soul who blessed us musically with the gift of her voice, let me share some of her songs.

Once I saw Linda’s SoCS prompt ‘ic or ical‘, it had to be music for me. I have enjoyed listening to Aretha over decades and will still keep enjoying her timeless pieces.

Mixed Tape Monday

A great prompt idea to try out. I enjoyed how Pamela interlaced the mixed tape prompt with intimate insights of her life.

Female Flapper

Who do you think you are in your dreams and imagination? Be honest and take a peek at your inner thoughts. I like this quote that I borrowed from Deborah.

IMAGINATION AND DAY DREAMS CAN TAKE YOU PLACES WHERE REALITY DOES NOT PERMIT YOU TO GO. FANTASY…………..HAPPINESS……

Lessons for living the book that shaped my personality

A beautiful, positive post to start your day. Once I started reading I had to finish it.

Although I’m from a Hindu family, I did my primary schooling from a Christian school named St. Luke’s, in Himachal, and I’m glad that happened.

Second Chance Mushroom

An enjoyable story. Below is my comment.

What a twist in the tale. I am glad it was just a daydream into the future. I hope she gets to move to her dream neighbourhood. Great story.

My Boy Lollipop…

Lollipop, sweet, my boy lollipop, Millie Smalls, Memories, Reminisce

On my stroll, I saw this leftover or should I say the accidentally leftover lollipop, its bright sticky sweetness attracting little black ants that I could see drawing closer.

It’s just a mere stick of lollipop but it brought this old tune to my mind, ‘my boy lollipop, by Millie Smalls,’ and I hummed and reminisced as I enjoyed my stroll.

I grew up listening to my dad play this song on his old Grundig. I couldn’t have been more than 5 years old if memory serves me well and I didn’t know what the lyrics meant, but that tune was partly responsible for my kindness to lollipops 😉

I can imagine the disappointment of the young one whose lollipop popped out of their mouth but he or she doesn’t know that their loss offered me a brief dip into beautiful old memories and I daresay the ants were glad too.

Sometimes unexpected things trigger off memories stored in the recesses of our minds; sweet, bittersweet, poignant, dark, sharp memories of childhood and I’ve learnt to embrace all these memories both the beautiful and the ugly ones. They weave together to make me the tapestry of the soul that I am today.

Here’s a little offer of ‘my boy lollipop.’

Castle On The Hill – Ed Sheeran

I am hooked on this song by Ed Sheeran. It makes me feel all sorts of things.

It hits me in the solar plexus with powerful nostalgia, bittersweet memories wash over me each time I listen to this awesome song.

I’m singing along loudly, tearing up over little reasons I can’t place my fingers on. It’s playing right now in the background as I quickly type this.

I thought his Shape of you is fabulous (it’s still fabulous), but this one right here is a heartbreaker and breathtaking.

Vivid, Vibrant and Alive

Today, I offer you a splash of beautiful yellow blossoms captured during my morning walk.

Yellow, Blossoms, Flower, Nature

Yellow, Blossoms, Flower, Nature

There’s simply something sweet about yellow that screams vibrant and alive to me always. I guess it’s the brightness of the colour.

Also knowing the certain positive associations to the yellow colour makes it even more attractive.

Yellow speaks of happiness, hope, sunshine, warmth, cheerfulness, draws attention, positivity, clarity, energy, enlightenment, optimism, freshness, loyalty, joy, intellect and so much more.

May you find lots of happiness in your day today.

This one of the lovely beats I enjoy listening to. Easy Like Sunday Morning by Lionel Ritchie.

That will cost you A thought-provoking good read to start the day with. In the author’s words below:

We artificially inseminate our lives with isolation, disconnection, and cocoon in disappointment. The knock at the door is the same; what will this cost if I choose to never try again? Maybe it is worth it to re-engage in the things I place a high value on. If I stay stunted it could cost me and I might forfeit the very reason I’m alive! Just maybe, in fact, it is worth it. We might need to risk again.

Staying on top of work I know that many of us wonder where the day ran off to especially when you look at your to-do list with tons of stuff still left to do. This post is a simple tip that would help.

How I see myself Encouraging, inspiring, eye-opening post to say the least.

Nanowrimo memes Ha,ha! This made me chuckle a bit. I know how tough writing NaNo is.

October Fall Take a walk in the park, listen to music, enjoy it while the weather still permits such decadence 🙂

Full of memories Some posts turn me into a watering pot. Beautiful, sad, poignant and yes, beautiful. Listen to the music too 🙂

Water is Life Robert writes a beautiful, thought-provoking yet soothing post with a flavour of exotic. I enjoyed reading this and learning a few things.

Adolf Hitler – A tale of rejection I have read stories of Hitler and how he was maltreated as a child, but that doesn’t cut it for me. There are many others who have had worse on their plates in life and they didn’t become horrific personalities, their adversities made them more empathetic. Below is my comment to this post.

I believe that one chooses to be hateful. Yes, his upbringing may have been sad and pitiful, there are those who have had worse and didn’t turn into living monsters. There’s really no excuse for the monstrosity and horrible acts that this man perpetrated on humanity.

Can’t Stand The Pledge What are your thoughts on the pledge? Do you take a knee or stand? What are your thoughts on this interesting perspective?
