August is over, but summer is still with us for a few more weeks.
Let’s keep it going with some *summer* songs. They may or may not be familiar to you, but hopefully, they will stave off the cool weather for the rest of the month.
Enjoy Van Morrison and “Youth of 1000 Summers.”
Have a wonderful, warm week,
I’m writing a mystery novel, and it’s moving me in strange ways.
I love how Van Morrison captures the mystery of life in this song.
Enjoy the enigma of life with one of my current books.

There are so many songs that I have going through my head. Others that come to mind:
“What a Difference a Day Makes” — Dinah Washington
“Here Comes the Sun” — George Harrison
“Everyday I Write the Book” — Elvis Costello
“Words” — Bee Gees
“Brand New Day” — Sting
… and for my favorite song of all time, the one that makes my heart beat faster, my eyes well up, and my body feel warm and fuzzy each time I listen to it — “And the Healing has Begun” — Van Morrison.
I never thought I could feel so healed by figuring out how to create this blog. It’s not all perfect … yet, but it’s getting there. It’s a new day, bright outside, and I’m writing some decent words …
