On the 12th Day of Christmas

Da Goddess @ 00:01

On the twelfth day of Christmas, a song from John Berry. That voice. This song. Every year. Every. Year.

It’s simply THE SONG I have to hear on Christmas day.

Merry Christmas, friends! May you always remember the best moments of life and love today.

Oh, on the eleventh day of Christmas, Tim Minchin sings to thee…

This song does me in every time. I listen to it on repeat because there are smiles, a laugh or two, and there are tears. Tears for what once was, what is, what might be, and what is. It’s an EVERYTHING song to me.

Bless you, Tim. Bless you and your humanist heart. You really know how to get to me.

Last year, I encouraged you to get his album Apart Together. If you didn’t, do yourself a favor and get it now. It’s a work of art and has been in heavy rotation throughout this past year for me. I truly believe Tim Minchin is one of the greatest composers of our lifetimes. Not only has he written beautiful music for the stage (Broadway, the West End, etc.), he’s funny and deeply rooted in crafting songs that speak to the soul of us all. He gets it. And he shares it with us, even when so many of us feel we’re not into “that kind” of music. Friends, he writes about us, for us, and it’s most definitely the kind of music we need in our lives.

On the tenth day of Christmas, Justin Hines brings a smile to my face.

I know, I know. It’s the same every year. But it’s the same every year for a reason! I’ll always include him and his songs. I. Just. Will.

On the ninth day of Christmas, a song from Brenda Lee!

She was 13 years old, y’all. 13. THIRTEEN! I don’t know about you, but I don’t think most 13 year olds could pull this off. But she did.

Da Goddess @ 00:03

On the eighth day of Christmas, I think we could all use a little something different, don’t you?

Well, here’s something different!

On the 7th Day of Christmas

Da Goddess @ 00:17

On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love — me — gave to…me…I gave this to me:

A punk pop song to get my blood pumpin’ and get me out of bed.

On the 5th Day of Christmas, what do you want to see?

How about something a little cultural?

On the second day of Christmas, I give to thee:

No tweaking to the color whatsoever. That’s just what God served up and what my phone actually FINALLY got right for a change.

2021 – Day 254

Da Goddess @ 21:28

Twenty years is a long time. It’s a long time for something that seems like something happened just yesterday.

September 11, 2001.

We’ll never forget. Nor should we. Sure, the edges have dulled, but the fire rages on in memory.

20 years
240 months
1,044 weeks
7,305 days
175,317 hours
10,519,020 minutes
631,141,200 seconds

Never forget 2,996 souls dead.

2021 – Day 122: Kalo Pascha – Christos Anesti!

Da Goddess @ 00:01

CHRISTOS ANESTI! Christ is risen! Christ is risen from the dead, trampling death by death.

Christos Anesti!

Kalo Pascha to one and all. May the sun shine upon us and warm us for today and always. May Christ’s death and resurrection save us all.

For the first time in many many years, I’m actually sharing a home with another Orthodox Christian. I shall knock on his door in a moment and celebrate this gift.
