Musical Mondays

Today I've been a little out of sorts. I wish I could be a perpetually peppy person (try saying that five times fast), but I just haven't mastered that art yet. Circumstances, people, and my own failures too often get me down. But I'm not giving up. I'm going to try to focus on the positive. I found this quote today:

"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around." 
- Leo F. Buscaglia

I need to be more caring. If I'm focusing on others, there isn't as much room for sadness. So here's to caring! 

Also, I hope you enjoy this loverly song by DeVotchKa! Oh violins how I adore thee!
