#SLS ~ 10/31/21

Jim at Maggie’s suggestion prompts us with songs with brass or woodwinds. Such a fun 🤩 prompt. I had the best time ever listening to tunes. Finally I picked “The Impression That I Get” by the Mighty Mighty Bosstones. Writers Joe Gittleman and Dicky Barrett.

Have you ever been close to tragedy? Or been close to folks who have?
Have you ever felt the pain so powerful, so heavy you collapse?
I’ve never had to knock on wood, but I know someone who has.
Which makes me wonder if I could.
It makes me wonder if I’ve never had to knock on wood.
And I’m glad I haven’t yet because I’m sure it isn’t good,
That’s the impression that I get.
Have you ever felt the odds stacked up so high, you need a strength most don’t possess?
Or has it come down to do or die? You’ve got to rise above the rest.
I’ve never had to knock on wood, but I know someone who has.
It makes me wonder if I could.
It makes me wonder if I’ve never had to knock on wood.
And I’m glad I haven’t yet, because I’m sure it isn’t good.
That’s the impression that I get.
I’m not a coward, I’ve just never been tested.
I’d like to think that if I was I would pass.
Look at the tested, and think there but for the grace go I.
Might be a coward, I’m afraid of what I might find out.
I’ve never had to knock on wood, but I know someone who has.
Which makes me wonder if I could.
It makes me wonder if I’ve never had to knock on wood.
And I’m glad I haven’t yet because I’m sure it isn’t good.
That’s the impression that I get.
Never have, I’d better knock on wood.
‘Cause I know someone who has.
Wonder if I could, it makes me wonder if I’ve never had to.
I’d better knock on wood ’cause I’m sure it isn’t good.
And I’m glad I haven’t yet, that’s the impression that I get.

Sunday Reflections: A Week in Review ~ 10/31/21

A nice week full of fun and laughter. More like that please. Yesterday I baked bread. So therapeutic, I’m telling ya what! I also got my new glasses. I almost finished reading my book too. Time was trippy. Slow and leisurely. A real out of body experience. For ever in a minute. Kind of hard to explain. Oh well, kicking off a new with with what else but a week in review. Let’s roll call.
