I’d planned to do a real blog today. You know the kind I’m talking about, right? A thoughtful blog that would inspire other people to think because I’ve been so very thoughtful and inspiring. Only, as often happens when I try to be thoughtful and inspiring, when I sat down at my computer to start writing, all my inspiring thoughts fled.
But that’s okay because their mass exodus left a very clear thread in the wake. A few weeks ago, a friend of mine posted a video on facebook. It was a song I’d never heard by a group I didn’t recognize. And I almost didn’t listen to it because I was in a hurry to do something else really important. But I did listen, and I’m glad I did.
The friend, in case you’re wondering, was fellow author Lynette Mae. If you’re not familiar with her work, you should fix that.
The song that I almost missed is called Don’t Ask Me Why (McGill) by Great Ceasar. If you don’t know it, I really hope that y’all aren’t too busy to listen to it today. Or, if you do know it, I hope you’re not too busy to listen again. These words are far better than any I could have come up with. They are both thoughtful and inspiring and everyone needs to experience that from time to time.
Here’s the video for y’all to check out. I hope you enjoy the rest your Sunday.
