Susan’s Playlists Feb 29 – Mar 3, 2016 – Support from Behind (Yea-Bo, Grampa!)

stronger than you think 030216

I know that compassion is all out of fashion
And anger is all the rage
Grow up and give in to that cynical spin
That you see on most every page

We all know what’s wrong with the system
And how the people are puppets and fools
And if they’re not strong it will trick them
They’ll get used up like factory tools
And kids just give up in those schools, yeah

But what is it really, that’s keeping me
From living a life that’s true?
When the worries speak louder than wisdom
It drowns out all the answers I knew

So I’m tossed on the waves of the surface
Still, the mystery is dark and deep
With a much more frightening stillness
Underneath, underneath, …
~ Underneath by David Wilcox

At the end of class today, when David Wilcox’s beautiful song came on, it took my breath away how perfect it was for our focus ~ the strength and support that comes from underneath and behind ~ and for the time we are living in.

We celebrated leaplings everywhere (including my Grampa!) with lots of great music and you can find all the playlists below. Want to listen to them? Of course you do! Just to go to Spotify and listen to all our playlists from the week! You can do that for free at Spotify! Sign up for free, follow me at “susanmcculley” and you’ll find my public playlists ~ just click and listen!

[NOTE TO SPOTIFY LISTENERS: I am grappling a bit with the Spotify software/help desk, getting some error messages I haven’t seen before and wondering how that may or may not be affecting the user experience. I’m curious to know how it’s working for y’all. I didn’t hear from anybody last week and I’m not sure what that means! When you go to my account are you able to listen easily? I’d love to hear what is happening for you. Leave a comment or email me at sjmnia@gmail.com!]
