Aww…some Monday’s Music Moves Me

Aww…some Monday

As Pooh would say, “It was a cold and blustery day in the hundred acre wood”. Thursday I went to a local high school track meet to photograph an event for a friend. It was overcast with temperatures in the upper 40’s and a north wind gusting to 30 mph. In fact the high jump and pole vault events were canceled because they could not keep the cross bars in place.

The upside to a track meet is there are multiple events happening at the same time so you always have something to watch. The downside is there are multiple events happening at the same time so it is impossible to see or photograph every event. When your two favorite events are at opposite ends of the stadium, you can be a very busy person. Fortunately the high jump was canceled so I could focus on the triple jump, or as I like to call it “Hop, Skip, and Jump”. It takes far more coordination than I have to be successful at this event. My friend has a foreign exchange student who competes in this event so I settled in at the long jump and triple jump pits. Here are a few images of the event.

Monday’s Music Moves Me

It’s another free choice week at 4M. I am going to dig back into the archives and find another great female vocalist from the past. I believe that the 60’s & 70’s produced some of the best pop, rock and country female voices ever recorded. Previously I named Linda Ronstadt as my all-time favorite in this category, but lets not forget about Rita Coolidge, Carole King, Ann Murray, Grace Slick, Sheryl Crow, Dolly Parton, Emmy Lou Harris…and the list goes on. One of my favorites was Bonnie Rait.k Not only can she sing, she can shred with the best of the blues guitarists. Get ready to Boogie.

Have a blessed week.

    I think you may be right! The 60’s and 70’s did produce some great female artists. Bonnie Raitt seems to be making a comeback lately after just disappearing for a long time. What great songs you picked out!!

  3. Great music choices! We love track and field. Our youngest son ran in middle, high school and college. We miss it terribly. He lost of his favorite coaches last week. So sad Coach Phillips had ALS. He was so instrumental in making sure Nick moved forward with his running. Lots of good memories. Thank you for sharing this.
