Sorry it's taken me a few days but this week has been a difficult one on multiple levels and I've been pulled in so many directions that I haven't been able to breathe.
So I don't know how everyone else feels about the two part season finale but I LOVED it! I love how everyone seemed to get their shit together in the end...George manned up and asked to take the test again, The Chief manned up and finally went home, Meredith manned up and faced her mommy issues head on and in turn FINALLY became extraordinary, Derek manned up and decided to stop fighting his love for Meredith (who didn't love her candle house?!?!), Bailey manned up and stopped bearing burdens that weren't hers to carry, Christina manned up and learned that sometimes you just have to take the bull by the horns and fight for what you want, Mark manned up and stepped down long enough to accept that Erica is a much bigger (and better) man for Callie than he could ever be, Alex manned up and let his guard down (yes, there's strength in making yourself vulnerable), Izzie manned up and stood up to him and Callie manned up and decided to let her heart guide her in the right direction for once...convention be damned!
And speaking of that, why is it so hard for people to admit to the world and even to themselves that love...whatever form it may take...is NEVER wrong? I wish I knew the answer to that and maybe one day I will but for now I'll just hope and pray that everyone comes around to my way of thinking some day.
And now for the best part of all...the music! I'm thinking I may at some point (as I've said in the past and have yet to follow through with) go back and relive the music of the past many seasons here in between now and the time the new season airs but given the fact that my hard drive met it's maker a few weeks ago it might prove difficult. I won't make any promises but we'll see. In the meantime, enjoy these songs...three of which are from some of my FAVORITE female artists making music today.
Adele - "Hometown Glory"
I've been meaning to make a proper post about Adele for over a year now...I swear I will in the weeks to come.
Bryn Christopher - "Quest"
Duffy - "Mercy"
Ida Maria - "Keep Me Warm"
Ingrid Michaelson - "Giving Up"
Jon Foreman - "The Cure For Pain"
Priscilla Ahn - "Dream"
The Rosewood Thieves - "Heavy Eyes"
And of course Coldplay's new track, "Death & All His Friends" isn't available yet so in its place I'm posting an oldie that I didn't have at the time but that I do have now and promised to post if I found it...
Calahan - "Pouring On The Gasoline"
And in case you missed any of the ending or like me just want to see it again:
