Yep. This Tune.

Someone once told me the reason songs get stuck in our head is because the mind wants to hear them to completion. Remembering only a refrain it’ll repeat.

The best way, then, to get a song out of your head is to listen to the whole thing.

Whales sing the same song


[…] whales sing the same song,
all of them, across the globe
in the chill of the Arctic
and while lazing through the Pacific for a year
and suddenly change their tone,
all of them at once.
The first few hours of that new language
filling the ocean with sonic waves
that ricochet wildly,
finally accidentally intersecting in such a way that is
where have you been I’ve missed you so much.

– Jenna Ogilvie, from “Rosetta Stone

Clouds in my Coffee


I had some dreams,
they were clouds in my coffee
clouds in my coffee,

Life is Color (and 250,000 bouncy balls)…


I could not take my eyes off this soothing and mesmerizing video clip.

It reminded me of bouncy balls (on steroids) in my childhood.

Settle in and watch 250,000 colored balls being dropped down Filbert and Leavenworth Streets in one of the world’s greatest cities – San Francisco.

José González (one of my favorite artists) sings “Heartbeats” for the catchy background music.

Set your troubles away for 2.5 minutes – – forget about your work week – – kick back – – and enjoy.


One night of magic rush
the start a simple touch
one night to push and scream
and then relief
ten days of perfect tunes
the colors red and blue
we had a promise made
we were in love
to call for hands of above
to lean on
wouldn’t be good enough for me,
no to call for hands of above
to lean on
wouldn’t be good enough

Thank you for the inspiration…and The Inspiration Room for background details.
