Inspired by the grace and beauty of the flamingo, my life reflected by my love of reading, writing and creating.

D7: #Novelpi ~ Favorite Music: Matchbox20 & Rob Thomas

Anyone else fans of Matchbox20 and/or Rob Thomas?

I am! Here's one of his performances of Cradlesong at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, GA, on September 30, 2009.

Also, a superb Matchbox20 song. Bright Lights performed LIVE for Hard Rock Orlando.

Since I love an excuse to write, talk, research, listen to or learn about this band, I signed up to write articles for a fan site called Matchbox20Plus. Right now, you can vote for them as "Best Fan Site." I'm enjoying writing for this site! I'll continue to improve and I appreciate their patience with me as I learn the ropes.

For #Novelpi today, I did do better about getting down to the business of writing although my word count of 426 felt low, I'm still meeting my goal. I signed up for a goal of 250 words per day but personally I'm aiming for 500 words per day.

Last but not least, here's my poem about Rob Thomas as a singer:

This is for you, Rob

Wait - be prepared

to stop exactly on the spot

where I am

as the music starts


Rob's strong voice

already listening

I start to feel

elevated ~

Then again as I watch

Rob's performance

I'm reminded from

lines on his face

'bright lights' in his eyes

it's his ever-pounding heart

what's inside his blood

escaping from his soul

as he shares fragments

of himself

proving how much

this element called music

means to him in his life

willingly sharing

this kind fervor

with his fans

allowing them to feel

his elation ~


after all those

long days


it's the fans

giving you


to keep creating

what you love


Thanks for the music

and here's to even more!

She is pure Alice in Wonderland, and her appearance and demeanor are a nicely judged mix of the Red Queen and a flamingo.
