Time, #1239



It’s the last day of October, my favorite day of the whole year (Happy Halloween y’all!), but as I’m looking back on this month, I can’t help but wonder where it went.  What a jam-packed month, and I’ve barely written any blog posts at all.  Seriously, for a month with 31 days, I’ve written 9 blog posts!  This is a sad fact – especially because my blog is supposed to be a “song of the day” blog.  Oy vey!

Okay Okay – maybe I shouldn’t be so hard on myself.  There was that one post from my recent trip to Dallas that disappeared into cyberspace when I clicked the “post” button and discovered the WiFi was out in the room.  How frustrating!

Rather than try to rewrite that post, I want to recap the significant moments of October….

(1)  Annie – Oh how I loved sharing that musical with my daughter.  Some of you might think that seeing a live show may not be so significant, but for us, it truly was.  Not only was it a joyful moment, but I got to share a piece of my childhood with my kid and pass on the tradition of musical love to the next generation.  Yes, definitely significant!

(2) The Grandma/Daughter trip to LA – My kid is caught somewhere between childhood and womanhood, and her trip with her grandma to LA really expressed that – an American Girl Doll birthday celebration and a first make up lesson Sephora.  Watching her grow up is bittersweet, and this trip was a huge step to the next phase of her life.

(3) San Diego – Our vacation to southern California was significant on so many levels.  Besides amazing family bonding time at Legoland and the San Diego Zoo, I reconnected with an old friend!  Our families met and loved each other, and I wouldn’t trade that time with anything in the world.  Not only that, but my husband and I celebrated our 12th anniversary together.  What a great way to bring in our 12th year!

(4)  Dallas – My blog readers have not yet heard about my trip to Dallas, and I could seriously write a week’s worth of blog posts just about my 3 nights/4 days there.  I was in Dallas for a leadership training program that I was selected to participate in through my work, and wow!!! – the life skills that I am walking away with are seriously life-altering.  (CLICK HERE to read about LEAP -the Leadership Enrichment Advancement Program.)  I am so blessed to be able to have this experience and am proud of the accomplishments this group has helped me achieve.

So – you can see why this month has flown by in the blink of an eye.  This one last night will be an awesome one.  Nothing can beat trick-or-treating with excited kids, and as I enter into November, I can only imagine what’s in store for the month ahead.

That is why my song of the day today is “Time” from the Alan Parsons Project, because time is a blessing and a curse all rolled into one.  It is precious and must be used wisely.  I am happy to know, that time flies when you’re having fun.


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!
