Songversations. Bhabhay' Winter!!

Ahoy Lovers!!

We're on the last week of winter ( YAY!!) and its exciting times! There's a general happiness in the air and everyone seems just more pleasant... Smiles are more authentic and hugs are tighter and longer (or is it just me?). I've summed it up as just people being hopeful as a new season unfolds and sunny days await. I'm not complaining!
These are interesting times for me too. Just this life thing gets easier and living it is much more fun. I still go through stuff...bad hair days, my salary not stretching until the next month ( God set me free from sales and everyday lunch dates, Amen!!) and just growing pains but happiness is trending!!

Ok Im not here to talk about how amazing my life is (at least not today!). I thought I'd share the lyrics to India Arie's I Am Light off of her new latest album, Songversatons. I think this is such an apt title for the album because I've always fel like I.A talks in her songs. She tells stories and writes lyrics that start conversations. I mean at a time when we were being fed all that mess about how we should look and all the perfect looking musicians were making waves; she came out and said " Sometimes I shave my legs and some times I dont " (warre line?!). I love her becvause she's wise but has none of that preachy thing that people who know a lot have. I love her because she looks real even when she's made up! I imagine her as a calm person who isn't easily moved. Like, we could be best buddies shem! (-_-)

Let me not gaan aan any further.

Here's to sunny skies and shorter dresses :-)

Love you, babies :*

Ahoy Lovers

I am light, I am light

I am not the things my family did
I am not the voices in my head
I am not the pieces of the brokenness inside

I am light, I am light

I'm not the mistakes that I have made or any of the things that caused me pain
I am not the pieces of the dream I left behind

I am light, I am light

I am not the color of my eyes
I am not the skin on the outside
I am not my age, I am not my race, my soul inside is all light

All light, all light
I am light, I am light

I am divinity defined
I am the God on the inside

I am a star, a piece of it all
I am light
