My daughter (Evangeline, a VERY precocious 11) and I have taken to affectionately calling each other "Weirdo."
Probably not the best nickname for that stage of life for a young lady, but we say it with love.
LOVE YOU WEIRDO...
And we laugh, because it's funny. And as Sigmund said correctly, we "laugh because it's true."
But one of the things that I suspect is odd about me is that I hear music in my head. That comes in various forms... stuff I'm working on with our church, or our dance band that will someday play out again post COVID, or things that I've heard that captured the reptilian part of my brain by hook or by crook.
Sometimes it's music that hasn't been written yet, that's mostly pretty bad, and is mostly for my ears alone.
One of the internal manifestations of this for me is that when I wake up in the morning, it is almost always to an internal soundtrack and it sort of becomes the opening musical score for the day. It normally follows me around for a bit and then I get distracted by a dog, or a phone call or la Chupacabra on the interwebs.
And it can be literally anything, from Holtz, to MoTown to "You Are My Sunshine" - pretty much anything in my subconscious seems to be fair game.
I tracked this for 10 days or so, and for no particular reason, I'd like to share with you... The Music in My Head. It will be a motley collection, that I promise.
Here we go!
Up first is this one...
"The Shadow Proves the Sunshine" by Switchfoot and with a bit of fortuitous fun, they did a COVID version of this one from their respective homes. Enjoy!

At The Surge we love doing things together... that includes writing a blog! Here are a few of our main contributing authors:
Our fearless leader, Dwaine is the lead pastor at The Surge. His experience in counter terrorism with the CIA prepared him for ministry and he likes dogs and babies even more than E does.
E (short for Eric Reiss) is the Wingman at The Surge and likes dogs, music, Mexican food, his wife Karen and his little girl Evangeline... not necessarily in that order.
