Music Monday: J’ai perdu le nord

Now playing on my French song playlist:

Title: J’ai perdu le nord

Songwriters: Kristen Anderson-Lopez, Robert Lopez

Performed by: Donald Reignoux

Lyrics I like:

Je ne sais plus quoi faire

Lorsque la vie nous sépare

Je suis comme un vieux bateau

Qui guette la lumière du phare

Je suis comme une boussole

Qui a perdu le nord, et le sud

L’est et l’ouest

Quand tu pars


I don’t know what to do

When life separates us

I’m like an old boat

Who watches the light of the lighthouse

I am like a compass

Who lost the north, and the south

East and west

When you leave

A personal north guides you, tells you when you’re on the right track, and gives life meaning. What/who is the most important to you?

These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

I want to share a few of my favorite things that I discovered this year (2019). These things are not the most expensive, most popular, most beautiful. These things are simple. But they bring joy to all my senses and that’s what matters! Check ’em out – they might just make you happy, too!

For fun, I wrote this list set to the melody of the Rodgers & Hammerstein song, “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music.

Come sing along with me:

🎶 Gratitude bracelet and pecan tea cookies

Tiramisù kit and ‘Big Island’ shortbread

Two ‘Frozen 2’ songs that I love to sing

These are a few of my favorite things…


Lavender chamomile probiotic tea

‘Typo’ metal pens with monogram ‘D’

Organic deodorant that will not sting

These are a few of my favorite things…


Croissants from ‘Tartine’ and ‘Topdrawer’ postcards

“Dreaming Time Again” and “Reasons I Drink” –

Feelings of nostalgia these new songs bring

These are a few of my favorite things… 🎶
