I visited a blog for this weekend and when the owner of the blog saw my blog name it reminded him of this particular comic.

Speaking of webcomics, your blog name makes me think of this one:

Music Monday

Share And Share Alike

Tiffany from Life With Blondie started Music Mondays because Mondays just suck. Mondays aren’t too suckish for me but I did like the idea and I will be joining in. I, however will only be contributing once a month. I believe Tiffany and her other music crew will be posting each and every Monday.

Just recently I became acutely aware of something I have heard most of my life – that music is the universal language. Then I heard math was, but no tangents today. I always thought it meant instrumentals like Classical music but now I know that music in any language can be understood by the soul. It doesn’t matter if you understand the lyrics or not. In just the last few months I realized the full meaning of Longfellow’s quote. If you think you need to understand Malayalam, Spanish, Tagalog, English, Korean, Swahili, or Russian to feel the full effect of what the lyricist, vocalist or musician is trying to convey, you are mistaken. Music is felt not only in the mind but also the soul.

For the most part what I have been sharing is Jazz, Smooth Jazz. Even people who don’t like Classical or the so called ‘elevator music’ can enjoy some smooth jazz. So far all of the friends with whom I have shared songs by artists like Boney James, George Benson, Kenny G., Najee, Norman Brown, Chris Botti and Candy Dulfer have enjoyed the music. I have even shared vocal music by Prince, Babyface, Journey, Yolanda Adams and several other artists. In return I have gained exposure to several new artists myself. Thank you all who have shared with me.

In particular I have received music by Ellie Goulding, Fonseca, Rashid Ali, The Speaks, Eric Darius and many more from Bollywood movie soundtracks. Music truly is the universal language and so to is friendship a universal construct. Music touches us on a spiritual level as does the love of a friend.

I have provided a topic on my contact page. If you would like to exchange music links via YouTube to share with me and in turn receive the same from me, I would be happy to oblige. Just use the contact page and I will gladly share a few of my Smooth Jazz favorites. In return, I would like to know some of yours. Jazz, Smooth Jazz and Spanish Guitar Jazz are my favorites but feel free to share any and all.

For I Cannot Forget U But Heaven Knows I Would Never Try

For I Cannot Forget U But Heaven Knows I Would Not Try
by Tom Baker

i cannot forget you
though why would i try for
now that the seed of friendship has been
implanted and watered in my cardiac soil

i cannot forget you
as you’ve sprouted those roots
and taken firm hold beneath the
love and music played by my heartstrings

i cannot forget you
your foundation in me runs deep
to the fiber of my very being
far enough to alter my soul

i cannot forget you
nor pretend that it’s an option
my stems and my blossom now turn to your heart
basking in the sunshine that is u

for i cannot forget you…
but heaven knows i would never try
t’would be futile to turn
to turn away from love
