Be a lotus flower…

“As a lotus flower is born in water, grows in water and rises out of water to stand above it unsoiled, so I, born in the world, raised in the world having overcome the world, live unsoiled by the world”

 

~ Buddha

I’ve changed

the old me is in the rearview

I’ve changed

the new me drags no chains

my heart ~ my thoughts

my decisions rearranged

I’m new

everyday,

from this day thru

I’m new

Dreamers ~ Quote by Harriet Tubman

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer.

Always remember, you have within you the strength,

the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”

The Beatles

One of my favorite groups of all time, The Beatles. I remember listening to all the albums that my mom got in her album of the month club and The Beatles albums were always my favorites played over & over & over again, and then, when I was about 11,  we went visit my older, hipper cousins and I heard Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band for the first time and it was nirvana.  I believe it was the soundtrack album from the movie of the same title.  I rushed out and bought that album and felt so cool.  As I’ve gotten older and especially now, I realize just how talented and beyond extraordinary The Beatles were.

I love pretty much every single one of their songs, but my 2 most favorite are Norwegian Wood, sung by John Lennon and While My Guitar Gently Weeps by George Harrison.

“While My Guitar Gently Weeps” is a song from their 1968 double album The Beatles (also known as “the White Album”). It was written by George Harrison and the recording includes a lead guitar part played by Eric Clapton.

“Norwegian Wood” was one of the first Western pop songs to feature the sitar, an Indian instrument.  John Lennon wrote it about an affair he was having on his wife, Cynthia, which to me was/is a pretty sh*tty thing to do, but my God, what a song!  I don’t think of singer or songwriter or reason for or what the song is about when I hear it, all I think of is another world, another place, another time, another universe called music.  It’s simply beautiful, breathtaking and bliss for my senses.

I’m posting some videos below with the original versions and some really fabulous cover versions, imho.

I hope you get swept away and lost in their magic as much as I did and always do when I listen to them.  I would also love to know some of your favorites by The Beatles!   Enjoy!
