Music To Inspire You
Welcome To
Music Moves Me!

This week our friends at Music Monday are sharing their favorite British Invasion songs and bands (great theme, Nalia Moon!) – but for those of us who could use a little laughter to kick off our week, I came across this updated version of the classic James Taylor song, Fire and Rain, that I felt compelled to share.

James Taylor – Updated Version of Fire And Rain

Enjoy the song and have an amazing week!

Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
Judy Palmer
