All Of Me-John Legend featuring Lindsey Stirling

With the kids back in school today was a quiet and slow day. It was nice but did nothing to help me think of anything to write about in a post. Fortunately, the radio helped. Now, I don’t know how I missed this one other than I don’t watch The Voice. I don’t watch much tv really. Also, I’m pretty sure I was caught up in my dad’s illness and other things at the time. As you remember I saw Winter’s Tale Saturday night. When I got into my suv to go home the radio was on a commercial. The first song to come on was All Of Me by John Legend. Maybe it was the mood I was in or maybe it’s just a really beautiful song but I was struck by it and I started crying after the first chorus. I have been haunted by this song ever since. The words and melody are simple but sometimes it’s the simple things that are the most touching, the most beautiful. The next morning I got up to go run an errand and the song that was on when I started the suv was this same song. It’s haunting me, I’m telling you. So tonight, when it played again on my Pandora app I realized I had to share it with everyone else. So, I went on Youtube and am sharing a link to a video of this song. But it’s not the video to the original version of the song. Instead I am sharing the link to a version I love because I love Lindsey Stirling. I think she’s incredibly talented and I love that John Legend did a version with her. It transcends the spirit and I love violins. Tomorrow I promise to have something more exciting to talk about or maybe another story if I can get some time to write tomorrow. Please enjoy the video!

Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at www.octpowrimo.com.
