Today is the “A-Z Challenge Reveal”. Last year was my first time to accept the challenge, and I completed the challenge, too. My A-Z list was poetry. I actually enjoyed it, after the initial panic passed. This year, I will accept the challenge again. I will panic again, too. But, then I hope to enjoy it.
My A-Z theme this year is: Lifeblood Songs. I have always said that my life has a soundtrack. For as long as I can remember, music has always been an important connection for me. My earliest memories involve music and specific songs. These songs often hold a time and place for me.
It is no surprise that I married an extremely creative, talented lead guitarist. We had an instant connection, too. Bill admired my writing and I admired his musical ability. Respect and love grew from that kinship.
This April, I plan to share songs that are sentimental or have deep meaning for me. While the music is always important as it has an emotion of its own, the lyrics are especially important to me. As a poet, words are my tools of both communication and survival. Songs speak to me in a special way. With that in mind, I will post both lyrics and a video for the song of the day. The song I choose will reveal a bit about my thoughts and feelings; I may or may not explain them.
I hope that you will enjoy my A-Z theme this year. I hope it moves you in some way. If you are participating in the A-Z challenge, please let me know so I can be sure to visit and support you, too. So, let the fun begin on April 1st! But, before then, I have work to do.
