Musings From A Musical Mind

Grey Seal

My blogging and google+ buddies got me started on Spotify – a unique music software program that allows you to build a music library. I have been searching when I have a few minutes – for music from my past – things I have forgotten about. Back in the day I loved Elton John – and yesterday while searching through every song he ever recorded – stumbled on this one.  I haven’t heard it in 35 years.  Hope it brings back as many memories for you as it did for me 🙂

What is your most memorable music group from the past? Have you been able to dig up some of their songs lately with things like Spotify or YouTube?  I’d love to hear some of your favorites!

God Bless

Why’s it never light on my lawn
Why does it rain and never say good-day to the new-born
On the big screen they showed us a sun
But not as bright in life as the real one
It’s never quite the same as the real one
chorus
And tell me grey seal
How does it feel to be so wise
To see through eyes
That only see what’s real
Tell me grey seal

I never learned why meteors were formed
I only farmed in schools that were so worn and torn
If anyone can cry then so can I
I read books and draw life from the eye
All my life is drawings from the eye

[repeat chorus]

Your mission bells were wrought by ancient men
The roots were formed by twisted roots
Your roots were twisted then
I was re-born before all life could die
The Phoenix bird will leave this world to fly
If the Phoenix bird can fly then so can I

Are You An Early Adopter?

My husband likes to say this about me, “Cindy is an ‘early adopter’ and an ‘early embracer'”  I like new ideas – can move well into new concepts, even if they are somewhat difficult to wrap my brain around.  I love a challenge.  I love new technology.  I will usually be one of the first to jump in.  I will learn it if it KILLS ME!

But I also have a really practical side.  Some would call it “cheap” – but I like practical and careful.  I do my research – am an avid reader and learn all I can about new things.  I love the latest gadget and you don’t have to convince me of anything – except the price.  For example:  I have a free wordpress.com account for my blog, I have a 3G iPhone that I got for $99 a couple of years ago when the latest iPhone came out that summer.  I have two free music accounts on my computer, Pandora and Spotify.  Sure the ads are annoying – but pay for a monthly subscription when I can get it for free?  Never!  I live on Ebay and NEVER pay retail for anything.  And I would LOVE to have an iPad – and I’m looking for a used one for $99 and then I’m IN!!

My husband Greg is a late adopter, and a “late embracer”.  Although I think he embraces things and new people faster than he thinks he does.  He is what I would call a slow processer.  Nothing wrong with that – it’s just another way of  looking at things.  He does not jump on the latest technology right away.  He has to think about it and process things before he decides.  I bought him his first iPhone a few years ago and he has the one that is the 3GS – one step better than mine – so it will do video where mine won’t – a feature that he has used quite a bit.

And he is also very practical – even more so than I am.  So paying for things like computers, cell phones, web pages and music subscriptions do not sit well with him at all.   But being a practical man – who also has a small business, he has had to have two web pages and he pays a monthly fee to maintain both of them.  Because this is for “work” and not “play” he can easily justify it – as it brings him monthly business and that means money.  But I remember this being hard for him – he didn’t jump right on.

I am aware of the “early adopters” – they are all on google+ – the techno geeks and those who are interested in the latest trends in social media.  I was one of the first ones on there as well – and it’s been fun to connect with all the “movers and shakers” of technology.  Some are impractical and have the latest phones and computers – some are practical like me and do not – but we are all in the same vehicle – moving forward and seeing if this generation will be changed by what google is doing right now.

I am aware of the “late adopters”.  I have some in my family and in my circle of friends.  Some are on the internet via facebook and twitter – some are not on either one and use email as their only source of connecting with the outside world.  Believe it or not – some of these people don’t even have a cell phone.  I know it’s hard to believe – but there it is.

So my question is:

Which one are you?  Early or late adopter?  Practical or impractical?  Do you easily embrace new ideas and try to incorporate them into your lifestyle – or do you tend to think about things first and see if it will be useful?  I’d love to hear your story!

God Bless
