the weight

i am in a funk. a low down, serious funk this week. trying to get a hold of myself and just get over it all. though its difficult. i keep feeling pulled down. and i'm not sure why i'm putting this out here, because i'm not really in the mood to talk about it except that i wanted to share what is helping me get through it (at times).

this is helping.

one of my all time favorites. this version. turned up loud.
(except that this video cuts off mavis saying 'beautiful' - which is a shame)

and if you haven't seen this i believe you are missing out. you should stop what you are doing right now and go buy it (or even just the soundtrack). then play it. LOUD.

***(just a side note: i love the staple singers. if we ever have another girl she will be named mavis.)***


  1. I'm with you. I can't seem to get out of my funk. Maybe it's the month or the season, but I'm sick of it.


  2. i'm going to chalk it up to it being the month. january has been a bit of a downer, with a few exceptions. so i am giving myself this last week to get over it. no excuses.

  3. hope the funk breaks. it is so normal, mamaing is a hard job. we know all the good stuff it brings of course, but ruts do come. music always helps me too.
    i love it.
    xo to you.
