Dirty Laundry, #551


My life sometimes seems like it is a pile of laundry: a big mound of mess that needs to be dealt with, but with which I do everything to avoid.  The longer I procrastinate tackling it, the worse it gets.

Here’s the thing though.  Once I finally do sort it into colors and set aside some time to throw a load in, it’s really not that bad.  In fact, once one load is in, I can do all of the other gazillion chores and activities I need to do as I wait between cycles.  So why do I let it pile up?

I guess the same could be said of almost anything in life.  Why is it that I build up tasks to be something that is impossible when in reality, they’re really simple….for the most part anyhow.  Life really is like a big pile of laundry..full of colors and mess that needs to be sifted through, but once you get to the bottom of the pile, there is a feeling of accomplishment.

My song today is “Dirty Laundry” by Don Henley.  I was driving around town the other night, and this song came on the radio.  That is when I began thinking of the analogy to life and laundry, and the thought has stuck with me for  several days.  Click HERE to go to Youtube to hear the song, and go embrace your laundry head on.  It’s really not that bad.

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
