WOD Challenge 5-2-20 Message in a Bottle

Feliz Sabado everyone!

I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of all the mixed messages we keep getting on all of this COVID-19 stuff, so I’d rather talk about something else…like music!

But first, we had two separate times today we found ourselves under the right cloud and got sprinkled on! Once when we were sitting on the patio this morning, sun shining, clouds around but not overcast…one small rumble of thunder and then about 15 minutes later, rain! Didn’t last long but the drops were huge!


Then, as we were taking another long drive to scout out some property we wanted to take a peek at, it happened again. Sun shining, then out of nowhere, it started raining on us. Over just as quick. Some kind of message from Mother Nature? Or just happenstance?

Ok, do yall remember the song by the Police…Message in a Bottle?

This was always one of my favorite Police songs, back in the day I had such a crush on Sting, lol. I think the lyrics can be applied to the situation we have been in for the past few weeks. There are a lot, here is a short sample:

Just a castaway, an island lost at sea, oh

Another lonely day, no one here but me, oh

More loneliness than any man could bear

Rescue me before I fall into despair, oh

I’ll send an SOS to the world

I’ll send an SOS to the world

I hope that someone gets my

I hope that someone gets my

Message in a bottle, yeah

(further on-)

Only hope can keep me together

Love can mend your life but love can break your heart

 

Those are just a few of the many lines of this song, check out the lyrics following the YouTube video…enjoy!
