white bird

i remember so many songs that intrigued me and spoke to me, none more than this beautiful song of yesterday

"white bird"----it was by a group called "it's a beautiful day"---

i hesitated to look into the meaning of the song, for fear it could mean something, that i had not read into it all those years ago---i might look it up after i finish this---

but whatever the intent of the song---for me, it spoke of passions for living and it spoke to my soul and touched me in a extreme way

it stirred my emotions and made me dream of possibilities and the power inside myself--to soar, like this great white bird

when i bought their album for this song, i discovered another wonderful cut----"hot summer day"---which proved to touch me in much the same way

it is one of those albums that can transport me back----sitting by the river with my friends---staring at the sky and daring to let my mind wander at the future while realizing the depth of connection that music would always hold to those days

  1. I have some songs that transport me back too. A few of them I listened too during my college years which were the most carefree of my life.

  2. Ah, memories! People talk about scents taking them back in time, but I don't think there's anything as powerful as music when it comes to time travel.

    Oh my gosh! That's it!

  4. Some songs definitely bring back certain moments of my life. I remember being in junior high and lying on my back on my bed, staring at the huge pine tree in our yard and listening to Don Henley's "The End of the Innocence." The memory is as vivid as if it had happened yesterday...

  8. White bird has a special significance for me. I had a little sailing boat named Arawa which is a Maori word meaning white bird. It was also the name of the first Maori canoe to reach New Zealand.

  9. Maybe don't look it up? Reminds me of that line in the movie 27 Dresses where she says 'I feel like I just found out my favorite song is really about a sandwich.' : )

  10. Such a cool song! It's amazing how a song can transport you back to another time and place... although I should probably avoid regressing back to my 80s cheesy pop phase! ;-)
