Birds Flying High, You Know How I Feel

I’m sitting in Starbucks with my headphones seated firmly on my ears listening to Michael Bublé on iTunes.

Birds flying high,
You know how I feel.
Sun in the sky,
You know how I feel.
Reeds driftin’ on by,
You know how I feel.
It’s a new dawn,
It’s a new day,
It’s a new life,
For me.
And I’m feeling good…

The rest of the lyrics are overlaid as Michael sings on this video (and are also continued below):

Fish in the sea you know how I feel
River running free you know how I feel
blossom in the trees you know how I feel

It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
For me
And I’m feeling good

Dragonfly out in the sun you know what I mean, don’t you know
Butterflies all havin’ fun you know what I mean
Sleep in peace when day is done
And this old world is a new world
And a bold world
For me

Stars when you shine you know how I feel
Scent of the pine you know how I feel
Oh freedom is mine
And I know how I feel

It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
For me
And I’m feeling good

As I write this I occasionally switch to NFL.com to see if the Bears have pulled it out in overtime against the Seahawks. I hope so, because Bill Giovannetti is going to be heartbroken and will take a lot of crap if the Bears lose.

I haven’t written a new blog entry in a week. Sorry about that, Julia. I promise there’s nothing wrong.

I’m just really busy.

The new business has really taken off and doing justice for my clients takes a lot of time. When the work day ends I just don’t have enough creative juices left to write.

I miss it.

A lot.

I want to write even if I have nothing to say.

My ex-wife thinks it’s weird that I write at all.

Bah. She’s an ex-wife.

Great woman and amazing mother, however.

Nice! The Bears have done it. They’ve kicked a winning field goal in overtime. Bill can once again wear his Bear’s jersey for next Sunday’s sermon.

This week John Hunt proved yet again what a great friend he is by helping me photograph the entire used car inventory for my newest client.

His photos turned out much better than mine.

It only cost me a couple pizzas and a cup of Starbucks White Mocha.

That won’t always be the case, however. John will soon be a paid employee, bringing his official job count to 2. John already works full time as an Industrial Mechanic. Soon he’ll also be the Vice President of Dealer Web Concepts. He told me he better be really nice to my son, Caden, because he may answer to him someday.

That made me laugh. Probably for a lot longer than I should have laughed. It’s just so funny thinking of my beautiful 7 year old son ordering my best friend around.

I’ve developed a love for podcasts and audio books. I can put them on my iPod and listen to them as I drive around or service client accounts. I’ve read Rob Bell’s Velvet Elvis, and am now listening to him read it as well. I also enjoy listening to sermons from my favorite pastors/preachers from across the country.

Of course, music inspires me as well. I spend too much of my spare time on iTunes listening to previews and hitting that “buy” button if I like something. I spent a few hours the other night browsing through the Christian top 100 list.

Time I could have spent blogging.

Tomorrow I meet with a prospective new client. They haven’t even heard my presentation yet and already they tell me they’re eager to get started.

God is good.

I’ll try to blog again in a day or two.

I love your feedback.

Send more of it.
