Video: Live and Let Die by 2Cellos & Lang Lang

Today I don’t have anything “writerly” to share with you, but I do have a creative musical video for you to watch. Does that count? 🙂 

You may remember I enjoy 2Cellos. This video is of 2Cellos and Lang Lang performing Live and Let Die. Amazing!  I hope you enjoy it.

 

Have you ever had the delight of attending a concert of 2Cellos or Lang Lang?

Thanks for watching, and … Creative Musings!  🙂

Wedding crashers

This is just a short post for today.

Have you ever been to a wedding or other special occasion and someone crashed it? I’m sure many of you have seen THIS VIDEO.  I’m sharing it because I love it. If you’ve been with me any length of time you know I’m such a sap. Well, this video makes me cry every time I watch it. 

Go HERE  to enjoy it for yourself.

How would you react if this were your wedding?

Adorable video of child dancing

Today I want you to see this video clip of an adorable scene. A young woman is performing her Irish dancing on the cobblestone, and a small child obviously loves it. Go HERE to read the short article and scroll down a little to watch a delightful dancer. Isn’t this the greatest way to learn?

Do you ever feel this carefree and uninhibited – enough to set out to enjoy life no matter who’s watching?

Stevie Wonder sings carpool karaoke – funny!

Here is your laugh for the weekend. Not only is it funny, it’s touching and wonderful.

If you know who Stevie Wonder is you probably have enjoyed his music.  I wasn’t familiar with James Corden before this, nor had I heard of his carpool karaoke, so this was a great first for me.

WATCH HERE and enjoy!

Have you ever watched James Corden’s TV program before?

Have you ever met a real celebrity? How did you handle that?

Talents and distractions

I’ve been hit with a cold virus or something (cold, sore throat, low energy and feeling all-over blah) so haven’t got my blog caught up yet.

In lieu of a book review today I want to share this –> clip from Britain’s Got Talent in case you hadn’t seen it. 

Sometimes I am so blown away by the talent of some people, especially the ones who are so very humble about it.

Do you ever watch these shows? Do you ever think about trying out?

And look at this! A butterfly lands on flutist’s face during a competition!

Distracting or what?!  🙂 Could you have continued on?

Bless your soul today

I don’t know about you, but I am consistently brought into places of need for my soul, places where I need encouragement, restoration of my peace, reconnection with God on a deeper level again. It is at those times I often soak in His blessing of sweet ministering music.

I don’t usually share openly about my faith here, but today I will just say this … without Him I am nothing. He is the Meaning to my life.  Oh, that everyone would know Him that way.

Here is a beautiful collection by Hillsong. I hope you enjoy it and have a blessed day.

For who in heaven can be compared unto the LORD? Who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the LORD? – Psalm 89:6

Praise the LORD oh my soul! Do not forget all His kind deeds. – Psalm 103:2

Therefore my heart was glad and my tongue rejoiced; my body also will live in hope,  – Acts 2:26

Hillsong

Hillsong music, and Helping one another

A rambling post …

Here it is Sunday again. Weather-wise it has been like a late summer day – but it is supposed to warm again this coming week. I appreciate the summer so much; it’s far too short for me.

My spirit longs for particular music sometimes, right now being one of those times. Here is a link to Hillsong so you can enjoy the music I’m listening to as I’m writing this post.

Life continues on with its caregiving challenges (almost 3 1/2 years now!) – some days make me appreciate the good ones so much more. If it weren’t for the help we are getting my sister and I could not have managed all this as long as we have.

As you know, one of my goals is to write children’s books, or even any writing for myself would be good right now! Last month a friend and I were discussing our mutual desire to write, and I suggested a challenge. From that conversation we are now both writing – actually, we are writing together although long distance – one writes, the other adds to it and sends it back … and so on and so on. This effort is challenging us and helping to release our creative (writing) energy. Have you tried anything like that?

Now for the burning question:
How are you enjoying my blog; is it helpful to you?

I’ve been looking into ways I can help you more. Since I’m interested in helping promote your books (the ones I agree to read and review) and others I think you might like or should know about, you know I have a new page for that purpose: BUY THE BOOK!  On that page I’m in the process of adding a few more things – both for writers and for readers.

As you can imagine, I spend a lot of my available time reading books, updating my blog and writing posts. (and I enjoy it all!) When I upgraded my blog to better suit my needs it meant I’d have to pay for its hosting. (WordPress is very reasonable or I wouldn’t have done it.) After much consideration, I recently decided to look into affiliation which will bring in a very small percentage for any sales made through your clicks from the links I have here on my site. It will help me pay for my blog as it is, so is a way you can help me, too, if you want to.

The affiliations I chose are ones I think are of the most benefit to you as writers and readers. Once all the techie stuff is worked out you will be able to click to great things not only at Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, and WritersDigestShop, but also at Christianbook, Chapters.indigo, CafePress, and Vista Print. When I get them all set up you will find them through BUY THE BOOK! and on my Writers’ Helps page. Exciting!

Now I must grab some time to read more of the book I am going to review soon. So many books — so little time!  🙂

Please tell me what you think of what I’m doing here on my blog. I appreciate hearing from you.
