Keep the Wolves away

My friend David posted this song yesterday and it stuck with me through last night and today. I had to revisit it and the song inspired these thoughts and this post tonight. I found it fitting in many ways, especially since we are getting ready to start another workweek. Is it because we want to or to keep the wolves away? I wonder what the answers would be….

David and I always shared a passion for music, exchanging finds while letting the music convey what words sometimes can’t. If you asked me, there is a song, a genre for every occasion and mood. And some make me literally feisty, depending on time and listening to them at the perfect moment. If I could I’d only have songs and days like that, but unfortunately that is not always the case and life has it’s darker side. But you know what I’m talking about, and you know the feeling when a song comes on and a smile finds it’s way to your face. You may even act downright giddy, dance like nobody is watching and sing it in your perfect karaoke voice, god knows I do, lol. The same goes vice versa though and a song can make you ponder life, your path and the direction it is going. You may feel nostalgia or sadness and a new wave of emotion is flooding your soul.

This song spoke to me on multiple levels, of which first and foremost in the way of ending poverty and hunger. I know, we, the world can do more and we can do better if we truly want to. It would be a dream if nobody had to go hungry anymore and I applaud the band “Uncle Lucius”  for their effort, their time and dedication to make a difference.

The song also spoke to me personally and even though I didn’t raise a family, I have always been the breadwinner, the supporter, the “One”. Great responsibility comes with being the “One” and sometimes you will find yourself doing things you don’t really want to do. But you have to do them and you pay with your health, perhaps your life working on somebody else’s clock. Remember it doesn’t have to be forever.

Tonight as I pay it forward and share this song, I wish that you, (including myself) may find more times to do what you want to do and spend less time doing the things you don’t really care to do. May more songs bring a smile to your face vs. leaving you ponder life and how you got there. One by one we can change our stars.





I'm a dreamer and hopeless romantic who believes that there is always a silver lining to everything. Now, inspired by the simple life, I have learned that less is more and that we find magic all around us if we take the time to notice. Life is a journey and a process that is ever changing. We are constantly evolving in the matter of who we are as we align our stars and shed a past no longer in line with our highest self. I don't easily fit conventional norms, not because I'm a rebel, but because of resenting the pull that threatens to take me away from my true beliefs and my unique personal identity. I support the power of "Choice" and the ability for us to be the architects of our own lives. Some of these choices should have something a little wild about them as they form the moments that forever stay edged in our memory and make our hearts beat with wonder. Nobody will remember the ordinary. For myself, I'm a warrior who has fallen many times, who has gone through trails an tribulations and who is no stranger to adversity. After all, my choice remains clear, to get back up and stand stronger than ever. To recognize that it often takes our darkest moments to mold us into who we were meant to be. I have learned to trust the process and stay positive through the challenges. I trust it to be the only way to prevent my heart from hardening and allowing bitterness to creep in. I believe in the power of "NOW" as it is the only moment we truly ever have. The past is gone, unchangeable and the future hasn't happened yet. All we can impact is the current moment. Everything starts with a choice and hopefully with one that has something wild about it and may even scare you to death to execute. DO IT...I promise you won't regret it. This blog is my voice to share my Journey. If I could describe this adventure in short, I would call it "Spiritual awakening" with a yearning for "Freedom" and going after the things that truly matter. To seek a less complicated life that is stripped down from the many obligations and responsibilities that often tie us down. For me it is a life free of rules and regulations, one that allows me to escape the must expectations while jumping off the hamster wheel that is spinning faster all the time. To be on my own time and live each day to the fullest, to make it all slow down by banishing routine and unleashing my creativity/artistic values in an effort to entertain whatever subject comes to mind. And if lucky, to perhaps offer a different view to my readers, one that speaks to your soul vs. the demands of what society might expect. It is one that empowers you to be your unique self and follow the beat of your own drum. I am dreaming big as I trail blaze the path to a new life and becoming a storyteller. I find my inspiration in the little things in life, in Mother Nature and on the trail that provides the adventures and the backdrop for a book someday. My hope is to inspire "Courage" in others who might find themselves on the brink of taking that first step. This blog serves as a foundation for my collection of personal thoughts, opinions and experiences and by no means am I an expert on any topics mentioned. To my readers I would say that the universe connects us by a common thread, we all search and we all have something to say. We don't always have to meet in person to share a strong bond and people enter our path for a reason. Some stay for a short time and serve their purpose, while others teach us a lesson and help us become stronger through experience. And a few special ones remain as the treasures we hold dear over a lifetime and touch our hearts beyond means. In whatever way we are meant to be, I thank you for crossing my path and for stopping by. I hope that I have left you inspired, full of wonder and with a few "Wild Choices" to make....Hugs XO

  1. I’m glad I could share and connect. We do on a lot of levels. I wish life came with a soundtrack that just automatically played in the background, like on the movies. lol. But in a sense it does if you let it speak to you, and keep it on. I like that we share that passion for music. Sometimes it takes you back. Sometimes it has you dreaming of the future… But, One of my favorite things, is when the song and the moment and the whole spirit of the day comes together and makes you feel like youre alive and just absorbing the NOW. Yeah that’s what music can do.
    Just in case no-one told you today…You ROCK my friend! 😉

    1. Lol crazy ass, like you would know hahaha, but always know how to make me smile and that’s what friends are for right?
      Yes we do connect on a lot of levels, must be because we are weird artist people or something like that. I do believe artists see the world different and it’s a beautiful thing, especially when you can share it. Thank you….
      I know exactly what you are talking about and I can feel that moment of being alive just by thinking about it. It’s an awesome experience that alters the pace for the day, lets you inhale deeply and say “yeah life is good” or yeah I’m a bad ass” ha or something like that. Just playing but you know and in case nobody has told you….you always rock my friend. 😉
      I’ll have to check out the other one and copy the link. Or do I have to do more embedding crap lol.
      Catch you soon…
