Just prior to the GilGuy having met me, he was influenced in an energizing sort of way by a then-popular song. The chorus shouted out in staccato fashion: "Get up! Get up! Put the body in motion!"
So he did . . . and before long, we were phone dating, and wouldn't you know it? He was driving outside of his self-imposed 50 mile radius to meet up with me every other weekend or so.
We've had many catch-phrases as way-markers in this journey of ours, each significant in it's own right . . . and vital, too - because honestly, dahling! [spoken in my best faux British accent] "Would you care for a pork Rrrrrind??"
Pork rinds are the very sustenance of life! LOL
Okay, not really. But they are yummy. :)
Every once in awhile, we come across an event/happening/catch phrase that defines the season we are in. It just so happens, that at the close of 2012, Gil found a great indie band, local to us, who happen to be going places . . . and wrote a song befitting their new record label signing: Time To Begin. Rosco Bandana took up a resident place in our hearts, and soon the great rocakbilly-pop-indie sound filled out house many times a day.
I guess I shouldn't have been surprised by the motion this little tune brought to our semi-stalled-out building project. Yet, I am thankful for that song, as it has nudged us enough to get the ball rolling in earnest again.
That, my friends, makes my heart happy. :)
