Monday- Music Feeds My Soul: Mumford And Sons

Holy music heaven. Today I’m feeling like I need an old favorite to get me through this Monday. My writing inspiration today is courtesy of Mumford and Sons. I freaking love them. Like LOVE them.

Funny story, my husband (who isn’t a huge fan) planned himself a trip once to the Telluride Blues Festival. We were supposed to go together, but he and his friend booked their entries and forgot to tell me to do it as well. So by the time I filled out mine there were no openings left (we were all going to volunteer so that we could go for free, it’s a deal they offer). Anyways, they go up and spend three days listening to music they don’t even like and low and behold who comes on stage? Mumford and Sons with Robert Plant!

I was like “Are you kidding me?” Gah! So he got to see them while I stayed home for a weekend. One the plus side, it snowed on them and most of the people camp out up there for the festival, so I guess it’s a trade-off. I got my nice comfy bed and no snow while he got to see one of my favorite bands performing with a legendary musician… Wait! That isn’t a trade-off at all! Damn it…

Monday- Music Feeds My Soul: Boyce Avenue

I was introduced to this band by my dear friend Jimmy. He linked me a video and I was hooked. Mostly because Everything by Lifehouse is one of my go-to sad songs. Boyce Avenue’s version is stunning!


Lifehouse – Everything (Boyce Avenue acoustic cover) on Apple & Spotify


Incubus – Drive (Boyce Avenue acoustic cover) on Apple & Spotify

Their covers are fantastic, but their original songs are just as great.

Enjoy!
And Happy Monday!

Writing Wednesday: Autumn

“The question is not what you look at, but what you see.” – Henry David Thoreau

Every Fall I have the need to write about witches, it must be the season and all the pumpkin spice in the air. But from late September through Thanksgiving all of my focus becomes witches, Halloween, magic, and things that go bump in the night. Well, truth be told, that is what I think about year-around but in the Autumn it becomes my all-encompassing thought.

So I think some witch stories will be coming up in October, if nothing else maybe a couple of short stories.

What do you see when the leaves change? Does it change your persepective? Do you have a need to write about autumn themes?
