Sheila E – The Glamorous Life

This week has been fabulous, to say the least, and last night just needed to be a calm one for me. There’s no sense in trying to force something amazing to happen, because guess what? It’s just not going to happen. Great things come along, they are not necessarily sought after or forced. That’s why the whole idea of planning out life is both necessary and unnecessary at the same time. I know that everyone around me makes plans for everything, and I do to a certain extent as well. But the best times of my life have been absolutely unplanned. So I’m constantly trying to find that balance between planning out, and just going with the flow. It’s hard, but kind of fun when you get it. I’m always busy too, and the idea of planning something out stresses me, but like I said, it is necessary, because everyone else works on that sort of agenda. A walking contradiction I suppose.

So I’m not going to lie, I came upon this lovely tune from the fabulous Julia Taveras, (fellow empt writer) and it just made my Friday so beautiful. I started my morning with it yesterday, and I’m doing the same today. Sheila E has the quintessential sound. The drums, the synth, the misleading intro, the saxophone…great things are happening all around, and this song just reminds me of that.

She’s got big thoughts, big dreams
And a big brown Mercedes sedan
What I think this girl
She really wants
Is to be in love with a man

I have a feeling that this is a tune everyone can appreciate, but not enough men can admit to loving. So go ahead and indulge. When music physically moves you, ya just gotta take it and go with it. Work your sexy.

Until next time,

Ashley
