Yesterday was a really peculiar day for me, and left me feeling blue. Three particular times throughout the day I tried to engage in conversation with three different people. It seems I received the same "cold shoulder" from all three. One was in person, the other was via e-mail, and the last was IM. It just seemed kind of weird to me that all three were really kind of short, snarly, and distant to me. Now, everyone has an off day, and I can understand that maybe I was making much more of it all than actually was; but when it happens three times in one day, you begin to get the impression that it isn't them but rather yourself that is the problem! So I woke up today really bummed out and wondering what it was about me that had people not wanting to engage in conversation with me. Now, I've lent all of my Lara cds to a person at work. But it just so happens that I had a copy of Lara's English debut that my friend burned for me before I purchased the original for myself. So, that's what I've been playing all day at work! Well, let me just say that this album has an entirely new meaning to me now! Feeling all crummy and blue, Lara and her most beautiful voice, along with her amazingly transparent lyrics lifted me right up! I felt a connection again, as if another person out there believed in "human touch", and that she was going to be as honest and intimate as she possibly could through her music to be sure that it happened! Well, I have to tell you, she was a great companion today! Also, to note, the copy that my friend made for me included six extra songs that he added at the end, which really blew me away....such as the ballad version of "I will Love Again", "Bridge Of Hope", "For Always", and "Before We Say Goodbye".
