#9 Dream

Dream, dream away
Magic in the air
Was magic in the air?
I believe, yes I believe
More I cannot say
What more can I say?

—-John Lennon

I was driving on Wednesday morning listening to Sirius satellite radio flipping channels because nothing was appealing to me. The road I drive on has lately been dark and misty that morning light rain was dripping on my windshield. Then as an apparition of sorts “#9 Dream” came on and Lennon was singing to me well it felt that way. I gazed around me at the end of summer trees that haven’t turned her leaves into orange and rust shades yet. The sky above me was pitch black thankfully no hint of thunder or lightning beckoning. In that moment driving to a place of stress and tension hearing the song I felt a calm come over me.

Lennon has said “ Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” I get now what he is talking about. When we put our expectations of events, consequences, excitements, fears, frustrations, and others too high we fall. Expect and rejoice in the unexpected. I know we can’t play it safe all the time. Opportunities and new ideas are ways to broaden our horizons, to learn and grow. But savor what’s in front of you now because tomorrow it may be gone.

Stay safe stay well ❤️❤️❤️

      1. It caught me by surprise a few months ago, this is on the music blog I do. It was Amy Winehouse’s birthday and I had no idea until I saw other people posting. So I quickly cobbled something together and made a note to look up other birthdays. And they don’t come much bigger than Lennon.

    1. Yes Jane it’s given me real clarity about things going on right now. Things in my control and things out if my sphere and I get it or at least I understand better why certain situations stuck with me. Lennon is a great songwriter. I love that he woke up and wrote the song in that moment ❤️
