Monday Meditations: Those Quiet Moments

It’s a Monday. Why should I exhaust you? You need to take a load off. Go ahead. Put an extra cushion on your couch. Pour something tasty in a tall cup, and make sure it’s nice and cold. If you are a writer, this is essential. Some of our greatest inspirations come when we slow down and take a long look at the world. Let’s see if any of this helps you.

SONGS OF THE WEEK…

“Together” by the Raconteurs

There are many times in my life when I fly into a rage for a silly reason. Something about this guitar soothes me like a mother’s kiss. And then the lyrics kick in and teach me something very important about life that I need to remember. I think it’ll help you, too.

“When I Go Down” by Relient K

Matt Thiessen is the most introspective songwriters I’ve ever heard. You just might identify with him on this slow-burning epic.

QUOTES OF THE WEEK…
