Songs, Smiles and the Sun.
Avian Sunrise was on the road and we couldn’t have had more fun. We created memories with a great band composed of amazing people called The Icarus Account. I wrote this blog while on the road and I hope you all enjoy it.
Go ahead and youtube Ben Rector “When a Heart Breaks” as you continue reading.
“I woke up this morning
And I heard the news
I know the pain of a heartbreak
I don’t have answers
And neither do you
I know the pain of a heartbreak…
…I heard the doctor
But what did he say
I knew I was fine about this time yesterday
I don’t need answers
I just need some peace
I just need someone who could help me get some sleep
Who could help me get some sleep.”
It is a cold morning and the asphalt is wet. The trees are dripping from last night’s rain and the grass is as slick as can be. I am sitting by the window listening to this song looking out at the gloomy day and a lot of things begin to be put into perspective [for me].
We all go through hard times. We lose loved ones, go through emotional breakups and have been picked on. There are financial woes and health concerns. It is easy to lose sight of the beauty that surrounds us, but I assure you it doesn’t go away.
It is important for us all to remember that no matter how hard things are, you have loved ones around that care about you and are there for you. No matter how hard things are, your favorite song is still on your iPod. No matter how hard things are, the grocery store still sells ice cream to cheer you up.
With that being said, let us all take today and really take in all the beauty that surrounds us —- A great song, a smile, a cool breeze or the warm sun, a hug or a kiss. Life is good.
