I See the Light Cover

It's been a long while since I've uploaded a piano cover to the Internet, Youtube specifically. And since then, my piano skills have deteriorated, not improved. But hey, it is what it is. This time I've enlisted my little sister Lisa to provide the vocals. Appropriately, the cover is of an Alan Menken piece from Tangled, originally performed by Mandy Moore. Hope you enjoy it.

Morning Thoughts

1: I woke up tired. My brain has already been up for a while now. Racing. It's trying to tell me something significant, I know it, but I can't figure it out.

2: Something about the weather outside, the blue sky, the slight chill, it makes me feel like a 6th grader again, waiting at the corner for the yellow bus to pick me up and bring me to school. Yes, the early fall-like weather reminds me so.

3: I've been wondering a lot lately what kind of person I am. I see people living lives that I find interesting and meaningful. And other people living lives I don't want. I start to wonder where my place is among then. Surely, I want to live my own unique interesting and meaningful life. 

4: The cross path between engineering and art. Many people don't know how the inner workings of electronics work and to them it might as well be magic. I'm not trying to say I know exactly how they work. But I know enough that I can't just cast it off as magic. Science has been too deeply rooted. I love art and myth, and also science and engineering. Sometimes though, they have contrasting views. I'm just trying to figure out what my views are. 

5. I think these five four thoughts are linked with an underlying message. But like the first thought, I just can't figure it out.
