Last time on Sincerely Kate...
I will still be posting pen pal-friendly things on the same days I did last year (5TH, 10TH, etc.); these additional posts [Miscellaneous Mondays] are more for the “bandwagons” that pop up around WordPress like Daily Prompts, Challenges, and then the Music Themes I recently started participating in. I will likely start posting book reviews on these days one day in the near future, and I also plan to start accepting whatever awards I’m nominated for on them, too.
And now the continuation of Sincerely Kate…
Back on Christmas, I participated in a Music Theme challenge. This may have been the first time I did a post all on my own, but I’ve actually been collaborating with my mom for the past few months on her challenges, earning me the handle Collaborator. Here’s a list of the blogs of hers I was involved with:
- Music for All Hallow’s Eve (A Mother/Daughter Collaboration)
- Wishing and Hoping (Musical Theme for November 27)
- The Revolution of Music: Another Mother/Daughter Collaboration
- Across the Universe– A Sunny Musical Theme for December 4
- More or Less– A Musical Exploration of Want and Need
- Love and Random Acts of Kindness: A Musical Exploration
- Crazy Little Thing Called Love: A Fun Musical Exploration
- Classical Masterpieces: Remastered
- Dwelling Between– Music Theme for Winter Solstice 2013
- Home for the Holidays– Music Theme for December 25
- New Year, New Beginnings (Music Theme for December 31)
- Dreams and Dreamers (Music Theme for January 5)
After Santa came and went I incorporated a few videos in my post from the 30th that fit that particular theme, and now it’s time to incorporate the new music theme, Dream, into this one. Remember, guys, you can find the other themists listed to the right side of this blog.
As a kid I had a pretty active imagination. I didn’t just have an imaginary friend, but I had an imaginary family (complete with two twin girls and a baby boy) and I owned and operated an imaginary restaurant, too. I may no longer imagine a pretend life for myself, but I do dream about the life I want my real family and I to have…
Better Life- Keith Urban
“There’s a place for you and me where we can dream as big as the sky.”
A lot has happened since I served imaginary people imaginary coffee. I went from dreaming about being a performer, to wanting to get into advertising, to pursuing a psychology degree, to being a stay-at-home mom who dreams about making her writing hobby into a career. There was probably more stuff mixed in there, but you get the idea.
Everyday I Write the Book- Elvis Costello
“When your dreamboat turns out to be a footnote.”
And then, of course, I have dreams for this blog (however trivial). For example, I dream of finding a song from Glee that works with each of these Music Themes, haha 😉
Dream On- Glee Cast
“The past is gone. It went by like dusk to dawn.”
And now here are three other songs about dreams that I adore, especially the first. The movie Get Over It is a retelling of A Midsummer’s Night Dream, by the way!
Dream of Me- from Get Over It
“And sleep per chance to dream, so I can see the face I long to touch, to kiss.”
I Dream- Billie Piper
“When I close my eyes you are by my side, and I can picture us together.”
Once Upon a Dream- from Sleeping Beauty
“You’ll love me at once the way you did once upon a dream.”
I loved Sleeping Beauty as a kid and even as a teen, but it’s just now dawning on me that it was ironic for her, of all people, to be singing about dreams, haha.
And I find it fitting that Dream was the theme for my very first Miscellaneous Monday. Less than two months ago MMs were just a mere idea since my original blog rotation was so obsessive, but the compulsive part of me made that little nugget of a dream into a reality. On that note, I shall leave you dreamers with one last video…
Carpe Diem- from Phineas & Ferb
“Cause every day’s a brand new day, you gotta carpe diem!”
Sincerely, Kate ~!~
