Ain’t No Sunshine When She’s Gone, #1198



I woke up to a stormy morning, and I can’t help but think that it’s funny how sometimes the weather can reflect your mood.  My kiddo is away at Girl Scout camp, and I am particularly missing her today, because tonight is the talent show at the camp where we work.  As I write this down, I am perfectly aware that this sounds like no big deal – small potatoes really, but in our family there is a talent show tradition.  My daughter and my husband have performed every year together, and it is the sweetest thing.  I wrote a blog about it a couple of years ago.  CLICK HERE to read about a couple of talent show performances of the past.

My daughter is a little performer, which I guess is no wonder considering we have raised her on a diet of music of all genres and writing and plays and every art form we can possibly introduce her to.  She gravitates to the microphone though, and I am sad that she will be missing tonight.  I just hope she is having fun on top of that big mountain over Tucson, and perhaps she is creating performances of her own.

Rock on, baby girl, but for me, there ain’t no sunshine when you’re gone.


About tucsonsongstress

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!
