Friday Music Blog-World Angels Edition

Welcome to the Friday Music Blog on Chief 187™Chatter.

This week my mind has a dual focus.

We have been hearing for years that the end of the world, according to the Mayan calendar, is today. I do not believe that at all, but others do and businesses like the History Channel, survivalist equipment stores, and the like are profiting from the societal hysteria and/or interest in the topic.

My other thoughts revolve around the Christmas/holiday season as well the events that are now a week old. These things make me think of Angels.

So, today’s topics are taken directly from these ideas and thoughts swirling in my head.

First, list any and all songs that have the word “world” or “end” in the title, lyrics, or artist’s name.

Then, please list any and all songs that have the word “Angel” in the title, lyrics, or artist’s name.

For many it has seemed like the world is self-destructing based on monumental weather events, individuals committing heinous crimes, and a society that appears lost.

I don’t subscribe to that. Without hope, faith, and fearless empowerment to make our lives, both individually and as a community, infinitely better, we cannot spring out of our state of stagnation and depression. And I know we can.

I believe we will and a brighter dawn is on the horizon.

We are putting 2012 behind us and are ready to embrace 2013 with hope, good will, and a renewed sense of urgency to right the wrongs.

It has been well over two years and three and ½ months since I began Chief 187™Chatter. I’ve written and published every single weekday since I began, 640 posts in all.

For the first time I am taking some time off to truly enjoy the Christmas week with my family.

My sincere hope is that you all enjoy time with your loved ones.

Chief 187™Chatter will return in January with new blogs daily. I hope each and every one of you will join me.

In the meantime, starting the week of December 31st, I will be posting my favorite blogs of the last two plus years to share with you all.

If you like what I do, my positive message, and my free works, please share them with those you think would enjoy. The goal in 2013 is continue to expand the readership and reach of this site.

My personal goal was to reach 120,000 all-time pageviews by December 25, 2012. At this printing we have achieved 121,000! What a most wonderful feeling to know that you all join me daily to read, comment, and share my work. Thank you a thousand times over!

Wishing you all a fabulous Christmas/Holiday Season, a bright and Happy New Year 2013, and on-going Simple Joys!

Please join me on Monday for the Best of Chief 187™Chatter.
