Musical Monday - 'Elephant'

Getting back to blogging is still presenting a challenge, but routines are slowly slipping back into their grooves around here. Decided to share a last minute Musical Monday song. I generally don't listen to country, so this one is new to me. Caught a Q & A with Jason Isabell on NPR tonight & this song 'Elephant' kinda blew me away. If you are curious, he explains why he wrote what is basically a song about knowing someone who has cancer during this interview: http://www.npr.org/2013/07/17/202369759/jason-isbell-locates-his-musical-compass-on-southeastern

And, fellow MM hoppers, I will be around to visit you in a day or 2. I've just had a long weekend with a sick kiddo (just the 1st nasty cold of the school year - poor guy) and I'm calling it a night.

Wishing everyone a fantastic week!


  1. It is so hard to find time to do the things we love! I am struggling too!

  2. Amen, I know the feeling to that one too! I've never heard this song, but wow this is really neat. Thanks for sharing for sure. Hope you had a nice Labor Day & thanks for joining us! Hugs and have a great day.... YOU ROCK!

  3. This is new to me too I quite liked it for first time hearing :-)

    Have a tanfastic week ;-)

  4. No sick kids here, just enjoyed the holiday weekend with DH. That's my excuse for not hopping yesterday. I hope your kiddo is doing better. This tune is new-to-me, too, but I like the music. Thanks for sharing & hitting the dance floor with the 4M crew on Monday's Music Moves Me, my friend! ;)

  5. Dealing with a sick kitty after taking my only to college...Music lifts the soul..

  6. I'm having the hardest time settling into blogging too. Just the hardest time.

    It never used to be that way.

    Very nice tune.
    Thanks for rocking
