When 2 of your favorite artists collaborate?

Lyrics here

That’s what life is all about!

Jason Mraz and Travie McCoy are both huge sources of inspiration, hope, humor, and joy for me.  They are both so human and down to earth.  And SOOOOO unbelievably talented.  Lyrically, musically, stylistically, free-styling, song-writing, collaborating and solo work: you name it-they’ve got it!  Not only that, but from what I have read and seen about them, they both seem like pretty decent guys too.   And I know I’ve said this like 10x before, but Mr. Mraz is from Virginia, just like me!  Seriously, these guys bring me joy through their art.  Don’t want to get my hopes up, but I would love to meet them just to tell them as much.

Here’s my take on one of JM’s songs.

And here’s me doing my own “interpretation” of one of TM’s songs.

Thank you guys.

Thanks.

Wanting Emotional Fulfillment from a Source that is Currently Unavailable

I’ve been there.  My guess is you have as well.  And maybe the relationship will improve.  Maybe it won’t.  Maybe it will be better in a future life.  Maybe not.  Natasha says maybe/maybe NOT a LOT.  Who knows? 

I’m not saying someone or something else can take his/her place, but we can find joy and expression in other ways and still be happy, know what I’m saying?

GO WRITE YOUR OWN FREAKIN’ BLOG THIS INSTANT!  Instant breakfast is yummy…

PS.  Jesus raised the dead, even phones I bet.  Resurrection. 

Don’t throw it away, just because it’s broken cuz anything can mend

But also:

 Don’t stake everything on a dream that’s counterfeit (or won’t reciprocate)…

4 separate Natasha songs, (and 2 ALBUMS) in one post!

This blog is not perfect, and neither am I.

ImageBut both it and I are still pretty cool, I think.  And while we are on the subject, “perfection” is an interesting idea.  It can make us strive to become our best selves, or it can drive us insane.  There has been a lot said on the idea, including studying the etymology of the word itself.  Christ spoke of it in the book of Matthew.  I wish to further explore this idea in another post, but for now, allow this LDS apostle to shed some light and insight onto the idea of realistic perfection:

Perfection Pending

And I DO lock keys in the car AND forget where it is parked.  More than I would like to admit…

Not as bad as it sounds…

I have compared this blog to Christ.  That may sound a bit sacriligious, but just a minute, let me explain before you excommunicate me.  First of all, my discovery of identity (as articulated in my core beliefs) does not replace my faith.  It merely enhances and diversifies my character.  So yes I still believe in the literal Christ.  However, this blog has given me freedom, expression, joy, and immortality. And it helped rescue me from a dark place.  Does that not sound like Christ?  So I think I’m safe from the thunderbolts of blasphemy 🙂
