Misfit Magic

Song for the New Year

Yes, I know we are 2/3rds through January.  I am only beginning to fight free of the monochrome world, so forgive my lateness. I have so many favorite lines in this Kelly Clarkson song, but I suppose the best lines are “Here’s to the damned, the lost, and forgotten / Hard to get high when you’re living on the bottom / Misfits living in a world on fire.”

Do you ever feel like a misfit?  Or do you always feel like one?  Here’s to the people like us!

Misfit Magic

Theme for April: Take a Risk

Every so often I will hear a song that unlocks the door to a room I’ve kept closed and hidden from thought for years.  Kelly Clarkson’s Breakaway has lyrics that uncovered the little misfit girl I used to be, especially in these lines:

Trying hard to reach out
But when I tried to speak out
Felt like no one could hear me
Wanted to belong here
But something felt so wrong here
So I prayed I could break away

As my theme for April, I am going to

. . . take a risk
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway

Happy Julian Calendar New Year to everyone!
