"I Can Breathe Again," Baywood

Let's just spend a few minutes with the unbelievable cuteness of this song.

I've had some less-than-gracious feelings regarding snow in the last 24 hours (and neither the snow nor my attitude is on its way out). But then I heard this for the first time in the car on the way in to work. Yeah, it just makes me think about how good it will be to be home again, where I don't have to scrape inches of snow off my car, or have unexpectedly wet feet because there's a hole in my favorite boots (sigh), but it has both the number one and two requirements of all "cute" songs (clapping and repetitive "hey," for the inexperienced among you)! Wow, what a sentence that just was. And what's funny is that it turns out that these dudes are Coloradans, and so like all the youtube comments are about being "home" in Colorado, and there's just some incredible irony here, for me.

Anyway, have a listen or four, and clap around your office (or classroom or break room or ski school) for a bit.

I lost myself to the snow, and then I found my way back home, again.
But I can only stay for a while -- hey hey hey hey.
Now that I'm own my own, again, finally I can breathe again.
But I can only stay for a while -- hey hey hey hey.

Peace be yours.

Practice, practice, practice.
