    1. Dear Linda,
      Thanks for writing and being such a loyal follower. You are right. The number of followers is growing…300 followers is right around the corner. I’m planning a big celebration. I might hit 300,000 views and 300 followers about the same time. My readers are so good to me. They leave life-giving comments like yours. I treasure my readers and followers.
      I’m glad you believe that listening to these songs will help you keep writing and writing and writing toward your goals.
      Celebrate you.
      Never Give Up

  1. I love your eclectic mix of songs, Joan. When I’m grieving, I like to listen to Rachmaninoff or Mendelssohn or Scottish ballads while I clean the house. MInd you, that’s about the time I LIKE to clean house.
    When I’m happy I tend to listen to traditional folks songs, like “Silver Dagger” sung by Joan Baez or Linda Ronstadt.
    When I’m driving I like to listen to 50s rock and roll or jazz or SiriusXM channel 32 which features the music from the 60s and early 70s.
    Keep on producing your blogs, Joan. They’re good.

    1. Dear Sarah,
      Thanks for writing. I’m glad you liked my list of songs. You have a great assortment of music to meet your different needs. That is cool. Classical music has a great variety to meet all kinds of musical ears. When I’m stressed out, I sometimes resort to cleaning and straightening, too. It seems to give me an aura of control.
      May I add your list to a new blog post?
      Celebrate you.
      Never Give Up
