When you come to a crossroads in life you need to make a decision, or a judgement on what you will do. A crossroads is a point in your life where you have to access the situation that you are in and figure out if you should come, or go, or leave, or stay. When you reach the crossroads, you will see the path diverging in front of you. It is best not to linger too long at the crossroads, as if you pause there, and become frozen by fear or indecision, you will most likely be exposing yourself to more danger. You could miss an opportunity that is right in front of you, as the path ahead starts to close, so grab on to the opening with both hands and don’t let go. Sometimes it is best to make any decision even when you are not sure that you are making the right one.
Last week we had personal pronouns using I/Me/Them/Us/You/We, and that prompt was a lot of fun. This week we have Come/Go/Leave/Stay and I think we will all have fun with this. Take some time to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this music challenge, as you will probably find many enjoyable songs. Share your music with others and post a video, try do some research and let everyone know something about the song that you post. Show the lyrics, but most important, make sure that you have fun. Try to find a song that fits the prompt, then write your post and create a pingback, or you can just place your link in the comments section.
Here are the “rules”:
• Post the lyrics to the song of your choice, whether it fits the theme or not. If it does not fit, then please explain why you chose this song.
• 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 or place your link in the comments section below.
• 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.
