Bill Withers is going to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This news made me super happy for a couple of reasons. First of all one of his greatest hits from the album Menagerie is pretty much the theme song for this blog. I love the song Lovely Day and play it regularly. It's a lovely mellow reminder that, even though there may be challenges, this day is going to be a Lovely Day.
But the greatest reason that I am thrilled about this announcement today is that, even though Bill Withers is not the most well known of the list, I sent an IM to Tom (my hubby) and said "Big News: Bill Withers is going to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame" and even though his schedule at work this morning is super busy he responded immediately "Lovely" and it made me smile. Just one word from you and I knew it's gonna be a lovely day...
Admittedly, Tom did introduce me to Bill Withers decades ago but it's still nice to know that there are those moments you can share with another person that inspire smiles without a lot of words.
So today go out and have a Lovely Day!
