Seasons of Love

Happy New Year Music Lovers,

Not only is it Music Monday, but it is the first Monday of the New Year!  I thought about which song would be the best fit to kick off a New Year and new beginning.  After long consideration, I found the song which best describes a year and how we measure the time.  For the first Music Monday of 2011, I chose “Seasons of Love,” written by Jonathan D. Larson and performed on the hit Broadway show and movie Rent.

“Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes

Five hundred twenty-five thousand moments so dear

Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes

How do you measure, measure a year?”

 

The last line of the first verse is the most intriguing because it opens our minds to truly think about how we measure time.  As the days pass at times we never realize how often we zip through life in the fast lane.  There are five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred moments we just let fly by through the year.  Many moments should be treasured and held dear to the heart.  The moments in life are what make it worth everything.  Everything isn’t even the word I want to use to describe what I feel about the moments, but everything allows the coverage of a wide array as well as your own description.

“It’s time now, to sing out

Though the story never ends

Let’s celebrate

Remember a year in the life of friends”

It is strange how I chose this song.  I had a deep lesson in how we measure everything.  You ever find yourself measuring who you are by what you own, how much money you make, and other items which don’t provide love back?  Just think about it for a minute.  I leave you with the thought with a New Year beginning do not measure yourself by your bank account or stock earnings, instead look around at the friends, loved ones, and people you have yet to meet in your life.

As always bloggers, until next time, keep those ears entertained.

Musically,

Chelsea ♫
