Which Song Are You Playing in This Late Autumn Season?

Before beginning today’s post, I have an important announcement to make. A dear blogger, Crisly Zerrudo from Empowering and Uplifting, recently had a family emergency. Her father suffered a stroke last week.  He made it through surgery but has a long road of recovery ahead.

Please take your time and help Crisly out by donating money to pay off the medical bills. Also, please share her story on social media. You can check out the information and ways you can give here: https://gogetfunding.com/help-my-dad-recover-from-stroke/

Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.

Thank you!

I can admit that I am not ready for the cold weather. Recently, I have been sleeping in a cocoon of blankets during the nighttime. Using the heater here in Japan is very expensive, so you have to be creative and think about other ways to keep yourself creatively.

But the cold weather hasn’t stopped the positive vibes flowing in the mornings. Excellent breakfast with a homemade latte makes the mornings even brighter. But, what makes it genuinely fantastic is this one unknown song from a well-known singer.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

October has been a rollercoaster for me! This weekend, I caught a terrible cold that had me bedridden for a couple of days. I am just coming back “online”, aka back to normal, after spending pretty much four days sleeping and fighting a head cold.

I have meant to write about today’s artist for a while now. This artist has recently released two new songs within the past three months, with the current released about two weeks ago.  As a singer-songwriter, Jeremy Hoekstra has a beautiful talent for blending the sounds from different musical genres into his songs.

I had the privilege to review his latest release “We’re Alright”. This song’s message is very relatable to our lives. How so? Find out behind the cut!
