Struggling to see daylight

It’s been rough these past few months, so I’m doing everything I can to focus on the positives in my life. My kids are number one. My family. My SCA family. My pets (ermagerd sweetest dog evah!). Music.

Now that I’ve been out of the radio biz for 2 months I’m finding I miss it less and less. As I continue to search for work, I’m focusing more on the non profit sector. To know that I use my energy to help others in some way would fill me with joy. I’m still doing voice overs and slowly prepping the office for painting – need it to warm up a bit more before I can paint.

Girl child and I have started training for a 5k. I’ve survived so far so things are looking up! And I’ve lost 3 pounds, so bonus!

I read a study somewhere, years ago, that NE Ohio actually has more cloudy days than Seattle. I don’t know if it’s true, yet on days like today when the sky is cloudy and it smells like more snow, I can believe it. I’m finding my own daylight lately. That means snuggles with the kids and pets. Running outside instead of at the gym when I can. Clementines. Seriously, clementines are small little balls of happy.

And yes, music. I wasn’t sure if I was going to focus on music today but there are a few new(er) artists that have made me smile.

*I’ve always admired Bob Boilen and the Tiny Desk Concert. They announced the winner of their yearly concert a few days ago and I don’t wonder why. Give a listen to Gaelynn Lea and her song “Someday We’ll Linger in the Sun”.

*I’m known for being down on twangy music. What folks don’t know is I was like that for the last station I programmed. In fact I enjoy quite a lot of Americana music. The single, “Your Story” from Distant Cousins new album has a definite twang and I love it.

*I don’t even remember how the band Mynth came to my attention. I don’t care. Listen and love.

*Icelandic bands are huge right now. Here’s an Alt-leaning band that’s getting a lot of attention – Agent Fresco.
