Music Monday

Good morning to you. My trip to the North Shore was outstandingly refreshing. 

I think it's the perfect location for my tiny home project. Maybe someday I'll explore life as a writer full-time and spend summers in my tiny house on Lake Superior. It's a vision that gives me a major dose of happy heart. I'll be sharing plenty of nature photos over the coming weeks. There was much beauty to behold up there in north country. 

For Music Monday, I'd like to reiterate that the S.Carey album released this spring is awesome. I finally purchased it last week after listening to it online for months. Be sure to listen to Fleeting Light and The Dome. The whole thing is good; it's the kind of music you can have on in the background of whatever you're doing - work, cooking, reading. It's also great music to listen to if you're looking for "deep thinking" tunes that get you into a good creative space. 

I also have an artist recommendation for your Music Monday. Iggy Azaela. Her music includes lyrics that would be offensive to some but not to me. I'm a genuine fan. Iggy (real name Amethyst Amelia Kelly) was on the Today Show on Friday morning. I like that she's a genuinely talented rapper in a very male-dominated genre. I also like that she's worked very hard to get to where she's at, and she doesn't seem to take it for granted. Her style is eclectic. And she appreciates Weird Al. I mostly mention her so that when you hear her songs on the radio (which are being played non-stop), you don't write her off as a one-hit wonder pop star. I think there's a lot more to her talent than that. 

Have a good Monday. Below are some photos from the weekend taken with my actual camera instead of the good ol' broken cell phone. 

First stop, a sweet spot outside Two Harbors and then Gooseberry Falls.

  1. Glad to hear you're doing better, Emily. Reading about your visit to the North Shore made me smile. It's Minnesota's gem! Love that place! Here is a good video of Gooseberry during ice out last winter.

    Also, if you already haven't, get going on the Minnesota State Parks Passport program! You have your "book" stamped at every state park you visit.
