I am an incurable romantic

I am going to start by clarifying that I am not talking about the lovey dovey connotations of romantic, I am talking about this definition: marked by the imaginative or emotional appeal of what is heroic, adventurous, remote, mysterious, or idealised.

I love words. Words in every form: speech, poetry, prose, stories, song, plays. I am fascinated by the way they sound, the way they can convey meaning, how their definitions vary depending on place and situation.

I write down inspirational quotes and poems that I see/hear. Recently my eldest children have started to comment on words of songs, like me they read a deeper meaning into them. It warms my heart.

With this in mind I have started working on a soundtrack for my children, it's a work in progress but here is some of it. I have added links to the songs lyrics. Call me soppy, call me daft but let me know what you think.

Perfect - Pink
Three Little Birds- Bob Marley
Firework - Katy Perry
By Your Side- Sade
I Hope You Dance Lee Ann Womack
My Wish - Rascall Flats
Butterfly Kisses - Bob Carlisle (for my girls)
Bridge Over Troubled Waters- Simon and Garfunkel

The Climb - Miley Cyrus (yes I know but the lyrics are so good!)
