Music To Move Your Soul

Listening to music can evoke so many memories and emotions. Music moves both our bodies and souls!

If you are like me, you have a variety of musical genres on your playlists. What I choose to listen to depends on my mood. I may select music to match my mood, elevate my mood, get me energized or touch my heart.

Today, I am thinking about the things that are most important in life. This is one of my mother’s favorite songs and I like it too. The words bring tears to our eyes.

When you hear a song are you more interested in the tune or the lyrics?

Fact or Fiction-Reader’s Choice

Daily prompt: The Great Divide. When reading for fun, do you usually choose fiction or non- fiction?

I read everything. My reading choices depend on my mood and how much time I can devote to keeping my nose in a book! I like to immerse myself in a good book and read straight through to the end in only a day or two!

I just finished reading a book by Daniel Silva called the English Girl. It is but one in a series of spy novels featuring Gabriel Allon. I recommend them all and I recommend reading them in order if you can.

Once I started reading this hard-cover book series, I was hooked. I have since switched to reading on my I-pad, but when I had a chance to get a signed copy, I had this book delivered right to my door! There is no personalized message along with the signature, but I like knowing that the great writer once held this book containing his creation.

I like that the fictional characters and plots are set in real world settings. For me, it’s the perfect mix of fact and fiction. I am transported to places I may otherwise never visit. I meet people I would never chance to meet. I love the fast action and smart dialogue. After so many years, I feel like I know the characters and can even anticipate their reactions at times. Of course, there is always the added element of surprise and I am left wanting more!

Mr. Silva is, in my opinion, a gifted writer. I can’t wait to start reading the next book, The Heist. So if you have already finished the book, no spoilers, please!
