My friend loaned me one of her great mics to try out in my space. So far I’m loving the sound. So I recorded today’s episode with it. What do you think?

Podcast Recap

Gifts can be a blessing or a curse! I ponder how gifts impact us and how it relates to my food issues. One gift I truly enjoy is the ability to record today’s bonus episode with a cool new mic my friend loaned me. I’m mic shopping and it makes a difference to hear them in your own studio. Today’s featured song, Vegan Zombies, comes from our old friend, Josh Woodward.
Laurie playing with a stuffed bunny toy in front oof the mic

This is a bunny I gave my mom. It comes from the book, “I love you this much”. I use it in the studio when I want to feel connected in my reads. This was a gift she loved to receive as we often said this phrase with arms outstretched. It was a gift to get it back after she passed away. It’s a gift to have the memories with this little reminder bunny.

Here I am like Maria in the Sound of Music. I so enjoyed my Dance Moment on the mountain.

Podcast Recap

Inspired by supportive comments from BC Dave, I enjoy some wonderful moments up at the next to upper Zen spot where I ponder about persistence in the face of challenges and perceived failure. I’m grateful to BC Petra for her kind video message and for new iTunes reviews from Australia and the UK. We also hear from BCs Kelly and Dawny. For today’s dance moment I challenge you all to have a Funky 60 second Dance Party like I did on the mountain. As proof I posted a video of my Funky Mountain Dance to IG as LaurieDreamWeaver.

You can see the next to upper Zen place is an island of welcome shadow for recording despite the hot sun.

Lyrics

The spotlight, was burning like a flame
I was, a body and a name
And all the rest was gone

Trapped like a hermit in a cage
I left the others on the stage
And still the show went on

Take a bow, from the back of the crowd
It’s over now

And I now see
The world turns without me
My shoulders never bore the heavy burden
I was just another person

And the sun rose
Before the age of pharaohs
And after I am gone, another dawn will fill the sky
With no goodbye

I crave the comfort and control
Then chase the rabbit down the hole
And wonder why I’m lost

I build a palace so serene
Then douse it all with gasoline
I light a match and watch

Let it burn, without an ounce of concern
I never learn

[Chorus]

And I’m steering, away from what I’m fearing
But every twist and turn’s a new concern that burns my soul

The rudder’s rusted tight and I’m careening through the night
I let it go and take me where it will

[Chorus]

It’s me wearing contacts! I decided to see if I could wear them so I can go on camera for TV commercials and not be limited by my prescription glasses.

Thanks to my recent first time adventures with contacts – I can rock ready-made non-prescription glasses. I call these my RockStar Shades! What do you think?
