Whitney Houston

I have developed this thing for Whitney Houston songs.  I think I know when it started.  I was listening to Spotify one day at work and Sam Smith came on singing "How Will I Know" by Whitney Houston.  It was haunting and wonderful and I couldn't stop listening to it.  Then I started listening to her playlist at home.  I was introducing Whitney to my daughter.  We watched a documentary on her.  I let Janet watch parts of The Bodyguard.

As I listen to her singing.  I am realizing that my life is feeling like a Whitney Houston song.  I have been listening to her greatest hits and I resonant with each and every song that I have been hearing lately.  I sing along with her with tears streaming down my face because her words, the words that she sings tell me my story better than a lot of things.

I plan on sharing these thoughts with you but I find that I can not share these songs in just one little blog post.  All this to say, don't be surprised when I pepper my random ideas with a dissection of one of Whitney's songs.

Love me some Whitney.
