Be what you be, in all that you are…


First it was AC-DC. Then came Stephen P, Vicki @ The Kiwi Blog Bus and the incomparable Anake Goodall, all from NZ.  And then followed Tracie Louise from South East Queensland with her dazzle.  And just when you think the Down Under is tapped, I trip into an album from Angus Stone a folk-pop-rock singer-songwriter from Australia.  On this album, you’ll be treated to guitar, mandolin, harmonica, trumpets and more…in music that hits my sweet spot.  I couldn’t pick one favorite to share, so I’m giving you a taste of my three favorites…enjoy.

I can still see my trails from the moon,

The compass for my shadow as it falls.
I can still feel my angel,
Come knocking at my door, she told me

Be what you be,
In all that you are
Be what you be,
In all that you are
Be what you be,
In all that you are
Are, in all that you are.

“…cool and soothing…the wind is in your hair…not a single care…the speed of moving…feels like you can fly… feeling kinda high…beneath the big blue sky…you let go and landed on your feet…and it felt so sweet…there’s nothing more that can hold you back now…Amelia, you always had what you finally found…you’re on your way…your fears are behind you…morning glory…shines upon your face…not a single trace…of years all gone to waste…oh now here’s a story…full of hope and light…you didn’t win without a fight…now here’s to your delight…you let go and landed on your feet …and it felt so sweet…there’s nothing more that can hold you back now…”
