"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass; it's about learning to dance in the rain." --Vivian Greene


Laughter is the song the heart plays

When love pulls at its delicate strings of joy

When life seeks a remedy for tragedy

And finds its sweet escape in flippant comedy


Its chorus

Blasts out of my dusty car radio

As I fly up the highway along the coast

Leaning out the window to catch the salty ocean breeze

Hair billowing in a storm


Its bass

swells to drown out the world

And time slows to match its rhythm

Rocking to the waves of its music

I let it cleanse away my cares


Its melody

An ode to the infinite night sky

Accompanied by mellow guitar

Mingling with campfire smoke wafting up to the stars

Lighting up faces in halos of gold


Its lyrics

A tender ballad of young love

When he clasps your hand that very first time

Cheeks blazing red

As he tries that preposterous pick-up line


Its beat

Drums kicking with a hard crescendo

Screechy rock riffs rolling like the thunder

Of invincible rebels shaking the earth to its core

Reveling in the insanity of the world


Its echoes

Heard for a thousand miles

Uniting the world in a harmony

As we all lift our voices and sway to the infectious beat

Reckless, breathless, and free
