Day Two: Bruce Springsteen’s Red Headed Woman

What the lyrics mean to me: I like knowing there’s a man who enjoys a redhead. Enough to sing a song about them, too. Not enough songs or poems about redheads if you ask me. Smiles. 

This song makes me laugh every time I hear it. The man knows what he’s talking about…!

Enjoy..

It seems Ms. Hollie wants me to share my musical interests. My inspiration. 

Music and I have an understanding, I don’t ask it where its been, if it doesn’t ask me and because of that we’re the best of friends having traveled similar paths.

Hollie caught me at a good time and completely off guard. Thank you, Sister Ginger. ♡

Unless I’m with you

Day One: Chris Stapleton – Fire Away

In The Mood

Music feeds my soul
Celebrate a little now
Important lyrics

The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, a yearly event held for two weeks during the month of March, continues tonight and I’m pretty excited. The festivities began every morning and run throughout the day leaving everyone exhausted, but fulfilled. Each night there is a rodeo and concert. Most Houstonians attend multiple live shows during this enormous event held every year. I couldn’t be more excited. John Legend is in concert tonight.

I’m really hoping to hear this song. One of my favorites. Happy Friday, Y’all!

Musical Gift

Handel’s Christmas (12 guitars!) — Vince Carrola: http://youtu.be/kDnscekmpMU

The final weekend before Christmas and we’re all scurrying around trying to put the bows on those last few gifts. Maybe you’re succumbing to the fact that you’ll need to stand in one more line at the mall. Just so the smile you’re hoping for, on Christmas morning, arrives when your child opens their final gift. I’m reflecting on the reason for the season this morning, and as I do, once again Duke’s music fills my ears.

The professor, is a truly gifted guitarist, clarinetist, composer and arranger, who is finally sharing his talent on WordPress. Enjoy.

Oh, and if you find yourself in line somewhere play this on your phone and sing along. Give the gift of this arrangement to those in a hurry and remind them to slow down. Breath. Relax. Enjoy.

He combines, effortlessly, two of my favorite midnight service songs, found in thousands of churches on Christmas Eve, in this video shot in Pittsburgh. I can hear the choir already. I cannot wait.

Have a great weekend!

And Duke, thank you for such a lovely reminder. I know you give me a pretty hard time and I get quite the smiles making you blush, but I knew you were someone special a year and a half ago. I sensed it in your writing.

Your talent is easily found as clear, concise and encouraging, which not many writers accomplish after a lifetime of creating, so you’re way ahead of many. I’m thankful to know you and to call you my friend.

Now, y’all sit back and be AMAZED!!

Vince J. Carrola has been hiding far too long here on WordPress. He’s a musical genius, my friends. At the age of three he began playing guitar and by sixteen had arranged, composed and published his first book of rearranged classics. His music can be found on YouTube.

Before I go, if that wasn’t enough, Vince and his team have been working all year on perfecting the art of producing videos, and it shows. They have come so far this year. I could go on and on, but I’ll stop so you all can enjoy their talent.

Honestly, there isn’t anything this man cannot do, of that I’m certain. Blessing to you, always, Duke.

Merry Christmas!!

Moms, unlock your daughters. You want this gentleman playing guitar by your tree, I assure you.
(He’ll kill me for that…but it’ll be worth it.) *sparkles*
