The Soundtrack of My Life Volume I

Some friends and I decided to create Soundtracks of My Life CDs. You can do it a couple different wyas. You can make a CD of songs you loved throughout your life or you can pick certain songs to represent different years of your life...like high school, college, etc. Most of us had a hard time because we just kept thinking of more and more that we wanted to include.

Here you see the songs I included...at least for Volume I


  • Gyspsies Tramps and Thieves (Cher)
  • Bad Bad Leroy Brown (Jim Croce)
  • Crocodile Rock (Elton John)
  • I Love Rock and Roll (Jon Jett)
  • Dancing Queen ABBA
  • Margaritaville (Jimmy Buffett)
  • Family Tradition (Hank Williams Jr)
  • Grandpa (The Judds)
  • Lost and Found (Brooks & Dunn)
  • Third Rock From the Sun (Joe Diffie)
  • Refried Dreams (Tim McGraw)
  • Emotional Girl (Terri Clarke)
  • Two Pina Coladas (Garth Brooks)
  • Hot in Herre (Nelly)
  • Some Beach (Blake Shelton)
  • Back When (Tim McGraw)
  • Toes (Zac Brown Band)
  • Chicken Fried (Zac Brown Band)
  • It's Five O"Clock Somewhere (Alan Jackson)

I've been asking everyone and I'll ask you Ginger's Journey readers...what would you include on the Soundtrack of Your Life?

Update on the DLs & the Not So DLs

  • Whoever said what goes around comes around sure knew what they were talking about.
  • People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.
  • Guess who is not having the love affair of the century?
  • Life is a strange but interesting journey.
  • Stop looking at me...you heard what I said.
  • Someday you will understand what you missed.
  • Is your job secure?
  • Stop talking about things of which you know nothing.

So with a public blog you can only allude to the juicy gossip...oh if I were only as wealthy as Perez Hilton...I'd really share the scoop with you...LOL...oh well they're good sayings even if you have no idea what I'm talking about....BUT TRUST me Ginger's Journey readers....life is much more interesting than fiction...

Casting Shadows

Untruths…tiny specks of self
Float invisible on the air of life
Like dust suspended,
Unseen…hidden on dim days of new.
Sparkling sunlight,
Illuminates microscopic particles,
Hanging motionless,
Caught by the rays of light and hope,
You, Master of
Casting Shadows.
Covering essential truths,
A false reality
Constructed of chosen words,
Brilliant sunlight reveals all,
Hanging in the air, these tiny flecks
Unravel the truth of who you are.

Greetings From Ginger's Journey

Good Morning all you Ginger's Journey readers....it's a brand new week and almost the end of February. When we entered February I was dreading it...I was ready for winter to be over, bored with life in general and overwhelmed at the same time....but here we are the last week of the month....winters still hanging on...but spring is sure to follow soon. And spirits are lifting with the thought of sunny days and warm breezes!!! At Ginger's Journey this week....
  • I'll be adding a poem....hopefully this evening called Casting Shadows
  • I will be adding my first tidbit of Irish Folklore
  • True to my Perez Hilton aspirations....I'm going to be adding a bit of "gossip"...true you may not know the "famous" people but still perhaps you will enjoy The Saga...

I'm sure there will be other things that crop up this week....I am going to be on the lookout for Ginger's Journey worthy material and hope to bring it to you on a more regular basis...until then TAKE CARE & BE KIND....
