Sing It

Most Appleites feel like their life is set to a soundtrack. Every reserved moment on the subway, every honk of the horn and rush of the crowd. Every date spot. 

Every walk around leftover dog poop on the sidewalk (or as I call them, the sh* and run). These moments are epic and require background grandeur.

Sometimes, in broad daylight and among the strangers of street, you'll see some of them sing their song. Out loud. Sometimes, you'll see them sway, and shake, and leap onto oncoming traffic.

There are no weird looks given to these folks. It's like the people around them are totally oblivious to how not normal that is. 

I was asked to pick mine this week.  And it got me thinking that maybe I should embrace the new normal, and appreciate that sometimes we need to sing to the tune of our own songs. 

So for all of you who are convinced your life is a movie...  

Love is the answer, 
At least for most of the questions in my heart
Like why are we here? And where do we go? 
And how come it's so hard? 
It's not always easy and
Sometimes life can be deceiving
I'll tell you one thing, 
It's always better when we're together.
