Sing Your Song
Please scroll down for my earlier post today regarding the OLW number 100!
A lot of people claim to have simple answers to really complex questions. Have you ever noticed how insistent they can be in pushing their answers on you? I've noticed that people who have to be right are usually deeply insecure and have to be right or their entire world gets rocked.
Or they are politicians.
Anyway, the saying on this card implies a rather zen message to comfort the insecure. (Politicians, however, are beyond all earthly help.) Just sing your song.
You do not want me to sing my song to you. I have the worst singing voice on the planet. Well, maybe not the whole planet, but seriously, dogs close off their inner ears when I sing. I completely identify with the unmelodious penguin in the movie Happy Feet, except that you probably don't want to see me dance either.
So isn't it nice that the message here is not literal? It just means we need to be who we are, do what we need to do, and be happy about it.
I like that message.
Is anyone else bothered by the missing period?
I wanted the sentiment to stand out, so I put it in black. The grunge background is from Papertrey's Grunge Me set (love!), and though it's hard to see, I stamped a bit of the A Muse music background across the top as well. I rounded the top corner so the bird was flying toward something interesting and the lower opposite corner for balance. That Memento light blue is really too light, but my SU bashful blue has turned into ballet blue and is too dark.
Now there's a first-world problem for ya.
Can anyone recommend a light blue that's not too dark and not too light but just right?
