Maudlin Monday. I can’t help it. The Johnny Mercer Songbook can fix your life with its tragedy, though, so try this one at the end of your day — a Monday, no less. Yuck. You’ve come home, kicked off your work shoes, scriggled your pup’s ears, set yourself on the couch and gotten to thinking not just about your day as it was, but about what it could have been/what it could be on the next day. If a skylark showing up in your day could have let your heart go a’journeying … I hope you have one, had one, or find one soon.
Got you, didn’t it? Let’s do another.
But you know what? He/she/it probably does have a song for you. A little melancholia is just the thing we need on a Monday to remind us and spur action towards a more fulfilling outcome on Tuesday. I’m rooting for you! YCDI!
