Do you ever wake up to a song running through your mind? And like with a dream, you try to figure out what it means to you.
That was me this morning.
The last few mornings, in fact, it’s been happening. I’d wake up with a song on repeat and it stayed with me most of the day. The first few times the daily songs resonated with me and it seemed like it was something I needed to hear at that moment.
A week or so ago I spent a few hours listening to songs from some of my favorite artists and the recent morning songs were all on that play list. I credited the listening experience as the music source but felt there was added purpose and the lyrics were there as encouragement for the day. I loved it.
This morning I woke up to a song that makes me shake my head and laugh. I have a feeling it was also a product of last week’s playlist but the message? . . . . mystifying.
I felt inspired to examine my emotional condition to see if I could relate to the song and whatever encouraging message it could possibly have for me today. Nope, not seeing it.
What was the song you ask? I’m So Lonesome I could Cry.
Is there a message here for me?
I mean I could be lonely, I do live like a hermit most of the time, but if it’s true I’m not feeling it.
I smile thinking about it, and that has to mean something good, right?
I’ll share this week’s version.
Hank Williams made it popular back in 1949 and it has been a classic forever. You probably know the one I mean. The version I heard the other week was not quite as plaintive as the early Hank Williams but still.
Happy listening (big smile)
