my brother sent me this video the other day.  [as his big sister, i’d like to take some credit for helping him develop good taste in music 😉 ].

to me, it sounds jack johnson-ish with violin.  when i listen to it, i invariably close my eyes.  not sure if it’s from the beauty of the music or my subconscious following the lyrics’ directions…

 Sing To You

It’s almost late, I hate to tell you that
it’s my time to go
I’ve stayed as long as mama let me, she’s
sad I’ve found a new place to call my
Home is where you find your dreams,
but you’re staring at the sun
So close your eyes, forget I’m leaving,
and let me lay beside you while I

Sing to you
It won’t be long before I’m with you
And not without another song to
Sing to you
So close your eyes forget I’m leaving,
let me lay beside you while I

Find the words to paint the pictures of
where we’re gonna be…
A thousand days anticipation will
keep us on our toes until my knee doth hit the ground will shake when I ask you for your hand
I’ll stand behind you,
don’t be unkind, you know I’ll
keep my promise to you when I


Violin solo

I’ll hold you to my heart
is beating with every breath you take
A flower blooms and it fills the room
with the morning glory erasing all
The mistakes I made before we made it
and left it all behind
I’ll bow my head, kiss you gently
I know you understand the words I

Sing to you
It was not long, and now I’m with you
And not without the same old song to
Sing to you
So close your eyes forget I’m leaving,
let me lay beside you while I
Sing to you

MSNBC: Men sleep better beside mate; women worse

josh isn’t a snorer, but still.  i’ll wake up multiple times in the night when he’s sleeping over.  partly it’s his jerky arm syndrome but other times there’s nothing specific that wakes me up.  i guess i just don’t like sharing my bed.


crazy much?

Ann Coulter, in a New York Observer interview, being her usual offensive self:

If we took away women’s right to vote, we’d never have to worry about another Democrat president. It’s kind of a pipe dream, it’s a personal fantasy of mine, but I don’t think it’s going to happen. And it is a good way of making the point that women are voting so stupidly, at least single women.

It also makes the point, it is kind of embarrassing, the Democratic Party ought to be hanging its head in shame, that it has so much difficulty getting men to vote for it. I mean, you do see it’s the party of women and ‘We’ll pay for health care and tuition and day care — and here, what else can we give you, soccer moms?’

and yet, her book is #5 on Amazon as of this writing.  i’m not sure what’s more frightening – that she spouts such irrationality and prejudice to sell books, or that people out there actually agree with her.

A Gesture

i love the cute love stories, yes i do.

this blog is a bit like a daily dose of chicken soup for the soul.  not sure if it would actually be something found in a “chicken soup” book since i never read those, but the blog’s emotion-filled posts remind me why i so appreciate music and literature and art.
