Soothing the Soul

I was going to tell you a tale of woe involving an incident at my daughter’s school choral concert last night, but I dallied too much with other stuff so there really there isn’t time to tell it.  Let’s just say that the whole thing kept me tossing and turning last night, so I really need to get a good night’s sleep (I almost fell asleep looking at my e-mail with my cell phone!)

What am I going to do instead?  Well, I feel a song coming on, so I will follow septetembermom’s lead whenever she needs a pick-me-up and offer you a peaceful end, or beginning, to your day.(Plus I could really use a big dose of calm this evening because my nerves are still a little raw because of “the incident”-curious aren’t you?)

Well, without any more delay, I offer you:

“Sailing…that takes me away to where I've always heard it could be.
Just a dream and the wind to carry me and soon I will be free.”

There is nothing like the melody of Christopher Cross’s Sailing song for total relaxation.  I haven’t heard this song in ages, but cranked it in the car ride home this afternoon and it still has the same effect-that haunting melody makes me think of the ocean and instantly I’m at peace! I wonder whatever happened to him? Just look at the beautiful pictures, then close your eyes and allow the music to float around you...I hope you enjoy it!


  1. That was nice. Just what I needed as I prepare myself for summer holidays--six weeks with bickering boys.

    It's been a while since I visited. Just stopping by to say Hi.

  2. Oh Gosh. Was it something similar to the time my middle daughter forgot the rockstop for her cello at the big year end concert, held at fancy venue and including celebrity guest performers? We spent the whole night focused on her in terror as it slid forward and she yanked it up over and over.

  3. Tropical Mum, I saw that you posted the other day so I will be right over. (Glad you liked the song...)

    MOTPG, this one had nothing to do with my daughter and happened before the concert-I will tell whenever I calm down about it. Now your incident sounds pretty unforgivable too. I guess music did not soothe that night!


Please make my day and leave a comment.
