Day 41 Happy Thoughts (Joy in the Recording)

Posted by intrepidshe , in Happy Things 21 January 2014 · 151 views

Jan. 20, 2014 (Countdown: 10 days to gynecologist consultation):
As I was driving to a meeting today a song came on the radio (I can't remember now the title or anything) that is one of those songs that fills me with joy when I hear it. I always imagine that the musicians were having a blast when they were recording it and some of their energy made it into the recording. That energy comes across and we all get to experience it. It really makes me smile to think of this joyful energy across time and across the airwaves. There are several songs that give me this impression. I sure wonder if there's anything to it.
One of the other songs that gives me this feeling is "This Heart" by Nanci Griffith, from her album "Flyer."
This isn't the album recording, but the video shows the playfulness anyway:

It was really nice having an extra day off today. I did end up working, but I got to sleep in and have another day of feeling rested. Also, it's nice to have a shorter work week.
I was pretty anxious earlier, but I am feeling much better now. I am glad I went ahead with the subject matter of my healing entry for today. I had been avoiding talking about it, but I think it did help me to voice it. I think I'll talk about that posting with my therapist on Thursday.
