Yesterday done, came and gone.

Standard

On a Sunday, today, I was checking my Facebook Page and I find a clip from the mid season finale of Grey’s Anatomy (S15 E9) with, as always, an excellent background score. And I Googled to find the song….Bones by Garrison Starr on YouTube…And since then I have heard the song umpteen times…lyrics below as much as I could type…My favourite lines in bold…

Oh child, when you are weary,
Weary deep down in your soul,
Hear my voice rolling like a river,
I won’t ever leave you alone…no no no…

Ain’t no chain gonna hold you down.
Ain’t no grave gonna hold you now.
Yesterday done, came and gone.
Ain’t it time to bury the bones.

Oh child, when you’re in darkness,
Them devils circling around,
Don’t you go thinking it’s hopeless,
Takes some getting lost to be found…oh oh ooo ohhh…

Ain’t no chain gonna hold you down. oh oh ooo ohhh…
Ain’t no grave gonna hold you now. hmmm hmmm hmmm
Yesterday done, came and gone. oh oh ooo ohhh…
Ain’t it time to bury the bones.

Take me down to the river.
Wash me clean in the water.
Take me down to the river.
Wash me clean in the water.
Take me down to the river.
Wash me clean in the water.
(Repetition)

Ain’t no chain gonna hold you down.
Ain’t no grave gonna hold you now.
Yesterday done, came and gone.
Ain’t it time to bury the bones.

Take me down to the river.
Wash me clean in the water.
Take me down to the river.
Wash me clean in the water.
(Repetition)

Worth repeating, again and again. Takes some getting lost to be found…Yesterday done, came and gone. Take me down to the river. Wash me clean in the water…oh oh oooo ohhhh…hmm hmm hmmm…

A very captivating finale…yet another elevator moment in Meredith Grey’s life…Great work Team-Grey’s Anatomy!

Move It! Lose It! Prove It!

Standard

“In the game of mercy when one kid cries out, the other one listens and the pain stops. Don’t you wish it was that easy now? It’s not a game anymore and we’re not kids.  You can cry mercy all you want, but nobody is listening. It’s just you screaming into a void.”

– Meredith Grey, Grey’s Anatomy; S10:E3

How many times do you find yourself screaming into the void? Sometimes more than once in a day and sometimes more than you can count in a week. It happens to all of us. I keep writing and saying Life is Beautiful. It is, but as the adage goes ‘Life is not a bed of roses’. You do get roses, but roses are never without thorns. Some days are good or perfect as we generally call it. And some are plain bad hair days. So much so that you cry mercy—a cry rarely heard, often ignored.

It can be personal or professional, and sometimes both. But then what do you do?

Life does not come with a pause, rewind or forward button. It just goes on, non-stop, till your final breath.

“What if your focus splits? Are you left with nothing at all? Maybe you just need to find a different path. What if you can’t give a hundred percent? Maybe you just need to go back to the beginning and start all over again.

– Meredith Grey, Grey’s Anatomy; S10:E5

Yes, may be you need to go back to the beginning, unwind, and start all over again. As the Fifth Episode of Grey’s Anatomy Season 10 ends, Callie Torres’ attitude and Little Jackie’s beautiful song ‘Lose It’ says it all…

Exercise your right to enjoy life, you don’t need an invitation.

To let loose and be free, no need to RSVP.

Make your way to the party, no need for navigation.

Just fire your smile, exercise your right to have fun.

Go outta your mind, get into the music…

Colour outside the lines, I want you to move it…grove it…show me how you lose it…

Move it…grove it…show me how you lose it…

Move it…grove it…show me how you lose it…

What is the art of letting go, this is your moment, it’s your commencement.

C’mon stand up, all your hands up, being in present.

You can’t occupy two places at the same time; leave the past behind, a simple change of mind.

Fire your smile, if you’re ready, get set for a good time.

Go outta your mind, get into the music…

Colour outside the lines, I want you to move it…grove it…show me how you Lose it…

Move it…grove it…show me how you lose it…
