Makin’ It Mine with Jason Mraz

Hands down – one of my all time favorite activities is driving with the windows down, on a sunny day with the tunes so loud that I can’t hear myself sing or my phone ring!

My amazing bro introduced me to his hero and my morning inspiration, Jason Mraz. His new CD – We Sing We Dance We Steal Things is simply fabulous.

Wake up everyone
How can you sleep at a time like this
Unless the dreamer is the real you
Listen to your voice
The one that tells you to taste past the tip of your tongue
Leap and the net will appear

I don’t wanna wake before
The dream is over
I’m gonna make it mine
Yes i… I know it
I’m gonna make it mine
Yes i’ll make it all mine

I keep my life on a heavy rotation
Requesting that it’s lifting you up
Up up and away
And over to a table at the graditude cafe
And I am finally there
And all the angels they’ll be singing
Ah la la la ah la la la I la la la la love you
I don’t wanna break before
The tour is overI’m gonna make it mine
Yes i…i know itI’m gonna make it mine
Yes i’ll make it all mine
And timing’s everything
And this time there’s plenty
I am balancing
Careful and steady
And reveling in energy that everyone’s emitting
I don’t wanna wait no more
No I wanna celebrate the whole world
I’m gonna make it mine
Because I’m following your joy
I’m gonna make it mine
Because I… I am open
I’m gonna make it mine

But don’t believe me…go listen to it for yourself! Just promise me that you won’t hold back when you want to start singing and dancing along… :)

Dare To Be Remarkable.

My special friend Gina recently gave me an absolutely beautiful gift.

(Gina and I after the Knee Knacker, 2008)

It is a hand-made necklace from a North Vancouver jewellery designer named Andrea Waines. I have often looked at her works of wonder and even purchased a few gifts for others myself. To receive one from someone else, I think is truly the greatest gift.

My necklace reads: Dare To Be Remarkable. Kinda hard to sport that and not feel fabulous, eh!
