music warms my soul

wow. i am still in awe. so much so i almost can't even put it into words. i had so many good bloggy ideas to compose about my john mayer experience... but it was so amazing, i just can't put it together. but i will try. i never really knew how much music moved me. never. i mean, i knew it affected me in such a positive way. but the john mayer show my husband surprised me with moved me into such a good place. i think i was waiting to get into that place, this show just gave me a slight push. and i fell.

i have been a fan of john mayer since i first heard his "inside wants out" cd. never did i know what an astounding guitarist he is. watching him get into his groove was like watching a passionate love encounter begin and end. intense. at such a young age.. he is at a level few ever make it to. he is one of the greats. not only does his sound make me happy.. the lyrics reach to the depths of my soul on so many different levels.

music makes me happy. simply. happy. i must be surrounded by it from this point forward. constantly surrounded. i know, i probably sound like a total nerd.. but hey.. to know me is to love me. regardless. i found my happy place in the last couple of weeks. this music just pushed me into head first.... and so i leave you with this... i do truly believe now, the hear tof life is good. simple. and good.

"The Heart Of Life"
I hate to see you cry
Lying there in that position
There's things you need to hear
So turn off your tears
And listen
Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
No it won't all go the way it should
But I know the heart of life is good
You know, it's nothing new
Bad news never had good timing
But, then your circle of friends
Will defend the silver lining
Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
No it won't all go the way it should
But I know the heart of life is good
Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
Fear is a friend who's misunderstood
But I know the heart of life is good
I know it's good

Hi Shelley,
Glad I discovered you had a blog I feel I know you a lot more now :)
I know Nicole from Two Peas and she told me all about We B otherwise I would never have known. She is such a lovely girl as you all seem to be , I am only sorry I don't live closer so I could really meet you all. Though I must admit the internet certainly closes the distance.
Sorry you have Graves disease, I hope it is managable with medication. I don't know much about it only that it has something to do with the thyriod and is an auto immune disease. I have Crohn's another autoimmune disease so know what ill health is like. I sometimes think it is easier if you have a broken leg then people can see what is wrong. I don't think healthy people , although sympathetic, can really know what it is like to be chronically ill. One thing I know for sure is that when you have good days you really appreciate them.
I am afraid that I am way behind the times and don't know of John Mayer !! Shock !!! Horror !!!
I must be missing out on a lot !!!
I will have to look him up :)
Take care, Cheryl
