Bringing the happy back

I used to sing.

All the time.

Annoying, irritating, noisy, loud, and usually off-key.

I sang my kids to sleep.  I sang along with the radio.  I sang in the morning as I made breakfast, at work as I typed away.  I sang in the shower, in the car, and in my mind.

At some point last year.  I stopped singing.

And I didn’t miss it.  I didn’t even notice it was gone.

Until recently, when it came back.

And I sing again.

And that is as close as I can come to explaining just how horrible 2009 was for me.

Not only did I lose my capacity for song.  I didn’t care enough to notice.

And that’s to help explain how glad I am that it’s a new year.

Here’s to 2010.

The year of The Happy.

  1. YES! In the immortal words of the Grateful Dead, “Let there be songs to fill the air.”
    May the iPod in your soul never run out of batteries.
