Welcome Back, Me

Yes, it’s true that I have neglected my attempts at blogging, as well as learning how to properly use WordPress. I apologize to you and to me. I really do want to do this and eventually write something of significance that will warrant your attention. In the meantime, I must practice a little more.

I would like to share my “touchstone” song with you. It has become an affirmation for me. The song is “Right Outta Nowhere” and is the title track of Kathy Mattea’s 2005 CD release. It was co-written and originally recorded by Christine Kane, who left the singer/songwriter business to become president and founder of Uplevel YOU™, a multi-million-dollar company that works with purpose-driven entrepreneurs, helping them to reach the highest levels of success in their lives and businesses.

Sometimes you can listen to a song for years before you really understand why you like it so much. This was the case for me and I make it a point to either listen or read the lyrics as often as possible.

Right Outta Nowhere – Christine Kane/Steve Seskin

A Midwest morning
October snowfall
She packed her Chevrolet
And she brushed the fear away
She’s got a great big dream
And a history of playing small
And everybody seems to think
She’ll be back before Christmas day
She hit that highway
With every ounce of faith she could summon When courage finally comes
You never see it coming

Right outta nowhere
You open your heart
And that changes everything
You’re going somewhere
And all you need to know
Is that you’re free to go

A summer night
The soft smell of seashore
All the deadheads dancing
Out on the beach
He’s got a ten-year tan
And his own little junk store
He says, some people got a lot to prove
And that’s the way I used to be
Now I’m just an old hippie
With a half a dozen PhDs
Some choices hold you down
Some chances set you free

Right outta nowhere
You open your heart
And let go of everything
You’re going somewhere
And all you need to know
Is that you’re free to go

Dream and the way will be clear
Pray and the angels will hear
Leap and the net will appear

Right outta nowhere
You open your heart
And let go of everything
You’re going somewhere
And all you need to know
Is that you’re free to go
