The other day Peter asked me if I had heard from Helen and I told him that I hadn’t, but his inquiry gave me an incentive to write to her. Helen wrote back and said, “Things are pretty much the same, to be honest. I have more doctors appointments lined up and no answers. Some days are ok and some are just bad. I was going to reach out to you soon to tell you that I’m not going to take the hosting of SLS back. If I do return to blogging, I’d like to be more focused on writing. You are welcome to take it and make it yours.” Helen went on to say, “I feel like SLS became a community, so it’s no longer really ‘mine’ if that makes sense.” Song Lyric Sunday does not belong to me either, but I will continuing hosting this challenge, because I am enjoying it. If being the host of this music challenge ever becomes overwhelming for me, I will make sure that a responsible person takes over before I resign. Music is in the air, lighting up our hearts and filling our dreams as an art form made up of sounds and silence.
The prompt for this week is “Occupation”, which would include many jobs like being an accountant, actor, acupuncturist all the way through being an undertaker, veterinarian and window cleaner. I am sure that there is a song out there for everyone. I hope that everyone will contribute a song today and please be patient again, as I will do my best to approve your pingbacks ASAP.
Here are the “rules”:
- Post the lyrics to the song of your choice, whether it fits the theme or not.
- Please try to include the songwriter(s) – it’s a good idea to give credit where credit is due.
- Make sure you also credit the singer/band and if you desire you can provide a link to where you found the lyrics.
- Link to the YouTube video, or pull it into your post so others can listen to the song.
- Ping back to this post will eventually work, as long as you are being patient.
- Read at least one other person’s blog, so we can all share new and fantastic music and create amazing new blogging friends in the process.
- Feel free to suggest future prompts.
- Have fun and enjoy the music.
