04 Aug Softly As in a Morning Sunrise
Hello Ladies! Happy Monday
Hope you had a wonderful weekend. We enjoyed going out, as the weather is cooling down here. The title refers to an exceptional jazz tune, titled “Softly as in a Morning Sunrise.’ Kind of what I think about when I wear yellow. The brightness of the yellow paired with my orange earrings make me think of that sunrise or sunset if you so please.
When I was at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, I studied jazz guitar, and this was a song that was played for my final Jury. I always hated that term, as it was I that was going forth and performing for all of my professors on stage. As a freshman, “jury” is kind of an intimidating word. What would happen if there was a hung jury!! I played this song, as a chord melody, which is what it says, chords interspersed within the melody. Enjoy the song HERE
Something about yellow that just incites happiness, brightness, and joy when wearing. When you think of yellow what comes to your mind? This weekend we spent some time at the development pool. My PT likes me to water walk, i like to do laps.. I was always good at swimming as a kid and got my lifeguard licence when I was younger. Swimming is such a calming and relaxing means of exercise, an also great on my joints. I can just float weightlessly, closing my eyes and trying to clear my mind. Another reason I like swimming. So, I think this outfit just represents how I view the summer months, calm, sunny, bright and light.I added orange earrings and necklace for that sunrise/sunset look.
Do you wear yellow? Does it brighten your day?
Have a great day!
