Mother Nature’s Son, #1224


I have a friend who’s from Tucson but doesn’t live here anymore.  She misses it.  I know she does, because anytime I post pictures on Facebook of nature shots that move me as I’m going about my daily life in Tucson, she comments, likes and sometimes even shares my photos.  She even begs me to post more, more, more.

Last night, as I was driving through a glorious sunset, I pulled out my iPhone at a red light and snapped this:


Stunning, huh?  Well, that’s Tucson.  Our sunsets light up the sky.  We have monsoons that cause monsters of clouds to charge through the sky, bolts of lightening that look like they’re leading to the end of the world and then an aftermath of rainbows that bring about smiles of hope and clarity.

I totally get why my friend misses it here.  Tucson is like nature’s wonderland.  All we’re missing is an ocean, and that would make it perfect.

So, a nod to nature today, because sometimes it’s so beautiful here it brings tears to my eyes.  The Beatles wrote “Mother Nature’s Son,” a song that embraces all of the natural world.  As my friend said in a message to me, “It’s not hard to find something beautiful in Tucson.”  True that!


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!
