It’s hot and humid down here. The flora are pollinating at a scary pace. Couple those factors with the fact that my maxillary sinusus rival the size of the Luray Caverns and you can appreciate the fact that I’ve been prostrate on the couch for the past few days, and I’ve felt like absolute guano.
However, both the fog and the congestion are lifting, and I’m actually beginning to feel better. Therefore, today’s discussion revolves around songs of inspiration. Any kind of inspiration will do – I just need that final push into the starting gate. I’ll start out with my five, and please add lots more. I haven’t accomplished a whole helluva lot since Tuesday, and unless I’d like my to see my little bungalow featured on “Clean Sweep”, I need desperately to kick it into high gear.
