Tous les Garcons et les Filles

I came across this song tonight, I think it illustrates pretty well where I'm at in my (love) life.  It's in French, but perhaps you'll still like it. 

You can check out the lyrics here, they're in French and English.  

Mostly I feel like my friends are dropping like flies, getting married or in relationships left and right.  And if not my friends, I'm pretty sure there has been an increase in couples all across campus.  

While I am pretty content being single right now, it still makes me wonder if and when that will happen for me.

I love music.  I may not be a music junkie, but I do think it's fair to claim love.  I don't sit on the computer for hours on end searching for new stuff, in fact I'm not a HUGE indie music fan.  The truth?  I am more than happy listening to who I consider the classics.  I love me some Cat Stevens, Simon and Garfunkel, Fleetwood Mac, Neil Young and when I'm feeling crazy some Barry Manilow, Neil Diamond, and Celine Dion.  

But, if I had to listen to only one artist for the rest of my life, I know exactly who I would choose.  

James Taylor.

There is nothing like a James Taylor song to calm me down and put me at ease.  Generally my favorite JT song is Fire and Rain, but in light of this cheery Christmas season, I thought it would be appropriate to link one of his Christmas covers, River. It may not be something you'd carol to the neighbors house with a thermos of wasil and a plate of cinnamon rolls... but I love it just the same.  

Here's to you James, thanks for getting me through! 

Sydnie Juniper

P.S. He'll be on tour in Paris at the same time I'll be there for study abroad... I'll look into it.
