Do you think your inner creativity lives and breathes depending on the day of the week? Well, Mondays, for me, are always my calm, sweet, inspirational day. I lean on Music Monday to start my week off right and I usually have between 0-2 people actually read this series, but I do it for me really. I enjoy finding new artists that feed my soul. I enjoy sipping my coffee in the quiet strums of a guitar after the kids have left for school. I enjoy the feeling these songs evoke in my heart.
So, today, I don’t have many words. In fact, words have escaped me completely, but I find a sweet peace about it. I woke up to a drop box surprise from a friend. I received it yesterday, but completely forgot until this morning when I opened my laptop.
So, there it is.
To start my week.
Oh. My. Heart.
And maybe Amos Lee didn’t wake me in the literal sense, maybe the calmness I feel is more than that. Maybe he awakened my spirit to experience satisfaction today. Maybe.
Every time I leave my house
It feels just like a shake down
Between street sweepers and the pushers are the lawyers
Who may as well be butchers
Between the small timing hustlers who all, seem to feed upon each other
Oh God why you been
Hanging out in that ol’ violin
While I’ve been waiting for you, to pull me through
Lately I, every time I try to lie down
Well my mind just gets away
I can’t even close my eyes now
Between the big fish ambition, and the lovers
Using words as ammunition
Between wood planks I’ve been pacing endless
Impossible dream that I’ve been chasing
Amos Lee Mission Bell album can be purchased at Amazon.com for the suggested retail price of $9.99.
