Jam & Dreams

We had our friends, Cole and Aubrey Carter and their kids, over for a little afternoon jam session in our living room. We had a blast strumming, remembering parts of tunes, making up tunes and ultimately discovering some hidden gems. Aubrey and Cole were kind enough to share with us a song they'd written many moons ago, called "The Stalker Song." We were fortunate to hear the premise first. Feel free to listen in either order:

Now that you've had a chance to listen to something that hopefully made you smile (we certainly had a good laugh), here's something that will hopefully make you cry.
This is me singing what we call around our house - the Sad Cowboy Song. It's actually "Angel from Montgomery" by John Prine:

Angel from Montgomery

Thanks for listening.

P.S. Today we watched the "I Have a Dream" speech and U2's "Pride/In the Name of Love"--all in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. So inspiring! I was grateful we had to explain to our children what segregation was. (They spent the afternoon playing with kids of all different races on the playground.) What's your dream?

  1. My dream is to seek, find and nurture the good in those around me. I love how the Carters took an awkward situation and spun it into a creative process that drew them closer together and continues to bring smiles to others.
