Monday Moods: “The Saskatchewan Pirate” by The Arrogant Worms

Tonight I discovered this wondrous tune thanks to fellow Canadians living in the UK – After a rough day not feeling 100% (that’s a surgical story for another time), it really brightened my night. Enjoy this funky song and embrace your inner Canadian.

You know it’ll be a good morning when you wake up and get re-reminded that one of your favourite bands released a new album along with all the other new albums that have come out recently. Hooray for new music! Time to have a mini jam session throughout today to some sweet tunes.

Perhaps the morning started off to a slow start or hasn’t even begun to show itself. A warm glow sets the room alight and all you wish is to remain encompassed by your warm blankets until the outside temperature matches the inside. Then you can put your sunglasses on, slip into your comfy shoes, and take a walk to somewhere you’ve never been or somewhere you need to go.

Every day has a different feeling, a different framework of motions and thoughts. Mondays are never the best, no day can be great, but then can also be the opposite, they can be wonderful. Here’s an excerpt from my writing for this late Monday evening.. Listen to the tracks, immerse yourself in whatever you’re doing and just breathe.

Believe in beauty even when you think there is none left in the world. Try and keep your heart open, let your eyes see and your organs feel. No matter what, don’t give up. No matter how hard, no matter how terribly wretched it may become, attempt to keep some shred of hope alive. For it may be the last strand of dreams left.
