Defining the intersection between listening and living

GGGF Friday #6

The destination for our lives is what we make it. Continually I talk about growth, race and my journey. For me, my life is my journey. The living is the destination. Taking care of my family, supporting those around me and making a difference. These things are some of the forces that drive me. I thought the words from Sara Bareilles song, Vegas captures best my flow for this Friday. Take a read through these lyrics. How do you experience them? What is your destination? Are you a dreamer?


Gonna sell my car and go to Vegas
Cause somebody told me
That’s where dreams would be
Gonna sell my car and go to Vegas
Finally see my name upon the Palace marquee
Gonna quit my job and move to New York
Cause somebody told me that’s where
Dreamers should go
Gonna quit my job and move to New York
And tattoo my body with every Broadway show

Listen up now honey, you’re gonna be sorry
Can’t get out from under a sky that is falling
And you say
No fame no money I’m nobody
The way I’m running has sure got me down
On my knees
But next stop, Vegas please
Gotta get to Vegas
Can you take me to Vegas

[Verse 2]
Gonna sell my house and cross the border
Cause somebody told me dreams live in Mexico
Gonna sell my house I got to lose ten pounds
And cross the border
And make sweet love upon the white sandy shore


[Verse 3]
It’s always just around the corner or you’re
On your way to somewhere
That is bigger or better
If you could only get there
It’s never your fault you can’t start your
Own winning streak
But I’d hate to lose you to the fortune you seek
I’m gonna lose my mind and sail the ocean
Cause somebody told me there were
Cherry blue skies
I’m gonna fix my mind with a final destination
And have a deep sleep upon a sweet dream
I’ll never realize…no


As always thank you
