If I had a nickel for every time I heard this phrase (or something along those lines), I wouldn’t even care about the fortune I plan on making from this blog 🙂 No but seriously, I’ve given this idea some real thought. And here’s what I’ve come up with: I do not mean to be a walking song. I can see how my near constant lyrical references could come off as being trite or cliche, not to mention potentially annoying. It’s just that if someone has already found the words that perfectly express what you are feeling, why would you try to find new ones? Economy of thought, people! Plus you can still be creative and original by borrowing art. Moulin Rouge, anyone?

I am having title troubles. Although it’s been in utero for about 25 years, this blog is fairly new in its genesis. We’re talking 8 days old. So I didn’t take a ton of time working on the name. The title as stands is not useless. Quite the opposite. It is taken from the Natasha song, “Cheer Me Up.”
Problem is, it seems a bit trite. Like the title of the blog of some newlyweds who haven’t quite left the honeymoon phase yet. So part of me wants to change it. But part of me wants to keep it because of it’s lyrical significance. And that one small chance that I can meet Natasha some day. And maybe? Dare I even think it? Share a stage with her….
What’s a girl to do?

If happiness can last forever,
I want a part of it.
Even just a little bit.
