October Mornings & You


“Life is but a day:
A fragile dewdrop on its perilous way
From a trees summit”

~John Keats


This October morning I would love to know a little more about you. That’s right, I’m talking to you. Even something as simple as where you are reading this (city or country)¬†or what you had for breakfast, I’d like to know.

It can be anything, a school crush or a grown up day dream, what you did yesterday, or one thing you wish you could do everyday. It can be as simple as describing your family life although family life is rarely simple or a dream you had last night and what you think it means.

It can be a favorite food or a song that means something to you. You can leave a few words or many…write your own post in the comment section if you wish or just say where you’re from and hello…you can say anything. You can rant and rave about something that matters to you or leave a quote or a practice that you like to use to bring you back from the edge when a rant is over.

I’m really hoping to find out more about the people who stop by GOTJ, but if you have a question for me, you can leave that here too.

I’ll go first today. Back in the 90s when I used to go on auditions that required me to have a song prepared, I used to always depend on a couple that my agent said I could pull off fairly well. When I sang for her the first time, she said that I had a “nice” ¬†little voice which really meant, ” It’s the chorus for you girl !”

I think it’s kind of telling that my best song for an audition was Oscar Hammerstein’s, ” Getting to Know You. “

Getting to know you,
Getting to feel free and easy.
When I am with you,
Getting to know what to say
Haven’t you noticed
Suddenly I’m bright and breezy
Because of all the beautiful and new
Things I’m learning about you
Day by day
