MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE OF THE DAY

“Experience is that marvelous thing that allows you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.”  -Franklin Jones

INFADELS- MAKE MISTAKES  *******Do you ever feel like you make mistakes from the time you wake up to the time you go to sleep again?  That’s why I chose this song.  I’ve had days where all I wanted was a do-over.  No, I didn’t get one, but I sure learned from my gargantuan mistakes.  Sometimes it takes me a while to make a decision, but only because I have to look at it from EVERY possible angle.  Murphy’s Law looooves me, but I try to stay one step ahead (knocking on wood!).  ;)*******

THE KITE RUNNER-SAMI YUSUF-SUPPLICATION  *******This song is beautiful.  I’ve heard about this movie, but didn’t know what it was about until now.  I didn’t intend to get a play-by-play, but was hooked when I started reading the synopsis here: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0419887/synopsis.  Reviews hold the book is better than the movie (typical), so I’ll do it backwards and watch the movie first. ;)*******

 

SONG OF THE DAY

SIA- BREATHE ME (KCRW 2007)  *******Brilliant!  I missed her when she came to Michigan this past April.  😦  I hope she comes back soon!*******
