Ordinary Day

I recently won first place in the Juried Art & Photography show.  Here's a great shot of me accepting the award with my winning image in the background (press photo by Chris Coughlin).  >> http://www.flickr.com/photos/spiritofthehills/6829842800/

You can see my pink ear molds in that shot - yay!

Now, many people that know me (and I mean really know me) understand the reason why I often watch young adult movies and TV series like Twilight, Harry Potter and Smallville.  To enlighten you, it's research for my books.  Yes! I'm serious...stop laughing.  I'm not talking about stealing plot lines or great jokes, it's more along the lines of gleaming insight into the world of teenagers.  Why in the name of all things holy would I want to do that you ask? Because I'm not exactly a young adult anymore. I'm old enough to be their Mom for crying out loud. So it helps keep me on track while I'm writing my book - a teen's state of mind is really a treacherous place to be, it's like a virtual mine field just waiting to blow up in your face.

Anyways, which leads me to the next topic here, music videos.  I grew up watching MTV as a teen.  Even though I'm nearly deaf, I still love listening to music.  I've been watching lots of Coldplay videos lately including Paradise and Charlie Brown and Every teardrop is a waterfall.  Such fab energy! 

I came across this music video that features a song that was on Smallville - I loved it the moment I heard it.  Unfortunately I can't find it anywhere on iTunes, just on YouTube (so far). It's called Ordinary Day by Greg Jones and there's a special reason why it captured my heart.  I can relate to it, TOTALLY relate to it.  I do feel different, I tend to get the impression that I'm a freak sometimes and that I don't quite fit in.  This song reflects that.

Lyrics:
As I boy I would run to my school,
Cutting through fields of clover.
Then they were gone: clean, good, and nice.
Covered by roads where cars now drive.

It's just an ordinary day.
I'm much to strange for this ordinary world.
It's just an ordinary day.
I'm much to strange for this ordinary world.

The more than I learn, the less that I know.
Never thought I would want to slow down.
Just focus on clouds in blue skies,
Above all the rain, the sun shines.

It's just an ordinary day.
I'm much to strange for this ordinary world.
It's just an ordinary day.
I'm much to strange for this ordinary world.

It's just an ordinary day.
A circus full of clowns.
It's just an ordinary day.
A circus full of clowns.
It's just an ordinary day.
A circus full of clowns.
It's just an ordinary day.

It's just an ordinary day.
I'm much to strange for this ordinary world.
It's just an ordinary day.
I'm much to strange for this ordinary world.
