The way I understand this challenge is to post a song I love and why I love it once a day for xx number of days. Let the game commence.

Day 1 of the #FavoriteSongsChallenge to #spreadmusicnothate:

From the year of my birth, southern religious music took root in my soul. This is one of my favorites.

My father was a Southern Baptist preacher.

I appreciate each of you. Thank you for your visits, likes, and comments. Stay safe out there in the CCE.

Local Live Music

I love local, live music. It’s even better when it’s free. The other night the Nashville I-24 RV Campground hosted a group in their pavilion. Excellent.Guitar player

The Shed BBQ and Blues Joint


Located at exit 57 on I-10 near Ocean Springs MS, this is a great stop.  The food is delicious and the atmosphere is a mixture of Cracker Barrel, American Pickers, and The 127 Yard Sale.     

When you get a chance, stop by The Shed

Shiney Rocks v.4


One of my favorite books is Be Here Now by Baba Ram Dass.  Yogi Pondurengedas gave me a copy when I visited him in Berkeley a long time ago.  This is one of the gems that will go with me on the road.

Things I thought

The Universe is a masterpiece of love, help, and karma.  It does not strain to do what it does.  We are part of the universe.  Why do we strain?
I choose to live in possibility.
I choose to live in joy.
I choose to live in love.
I choose to live in peace.
I’m not fighting against anything.  I am for good.
I refuse to focus on what I do not want.

Do you have a complex relationship with your past?  I can if I allow myself to over think it.  My  mind is a powerful tool when used correctly. When it is left to run wild it can be a powerful enemy.

Thoughts on Chaos Theory
I can (and should) willingly leave my comfort zone or I can wait for chaos to push me out.  Either way I’ll have to leave it.

Melanie’s Brand New Key

Background:  People who can see me in non-cyber space know I love shiny rocks.  I pick them up.  I carry them with me. I randomly give them away. I accept them as gifts. They sit on windowsills and tables.
This is the fourth in a series of biweekly features about sharing the gems and jewels I find along the way  (quotes, songs, thoughts, notes, websites, photos i take, photos I see).   I hope you like the shiny cyber rocks. I may update Shiny Rocks all during the day as I come across new shiny things.
If you have some shiny rocks you’d like to share leave them in the comments.   Let me know what you think.
May truth, love, and light embrace you and emanate from you.
