November Inspirations

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This November has been a month of traveling and blurs, of college applications, sick beds, the sounds of hundreds of people chanting from mosques amidst the rising sun from the view of a boat in the middle of  a city-sized lake, and of takeoffs and landings. It is sometimes heard to find peace within those moments, but we must, and we will. These photos are those moments.

Music Corner: 

Max Schneider  – Counting Stars  

This version of the song is the perfect blend of attitude and determination, for those days when you feel as if you cannot get out of bed, or when you’re feeling down.

Little Dragon- Twice

From the first pump up song, this is a complete reversal. Little Dragon’s mixes the exotic with the familiar. I was surpirsed to hear that, even though this has an Asian tune, the lyrics were in English! The accompanying video fits perfectly with the airy, not-quite-real feeling of this song.

Kina Grannis and Marie Digby -The Keeper

This song reminds me of those days past, the start of an epic soundtrack that needs no visuals to match simply due to its emotional merit…This is an example of where pure feeling translates to lyrics and melodies.
