Brite-Ideas is the “Country Music” Contributor on Squidoo

barb2014We’re excited to introduce you to Brite-Ideas, our new “Country Music” Contributor on Squidoo.

Tell us a little bit about your niche topic.
As we all know too well, life is a compilation of wonderful, sad, moving, painful, and joyous experiences. Each phase of our journey teaches us something new about ourselves; just when we think we’ve finally grasped the handle bars, there’s a bump..then all of sudden, it’s trees and blue sky again for a while. All of it is part of life. Sometimes it’s hard to smile, but none-the-less, it’s the smile that can help get us through. The lyrics and stories in many Country Songs speak to so many of us; as though the writer had a birds eye view of our life. For this reason, it has always been the words to a song that draw me in, and Country Music offers so many emotionally charged songs to choose from.

Tell us about the moment you fell in love with your topic. Was it an immediate thing or did it happen over time?
As someone who has been writing poetry and lyrics for over 45 years, and recently my own quotes, I’m drawn in by the heart of the words…even a song written in anger, has a piece of someone’s heart in it. I’m honored to read their words and listen to their song. I respect the artist who has the capacity to truly touch a soul…whether it’s laughter, cheerful support or tears.

Who influenced you most?
My parents have been my guide my entire life. I have always had the good fortune of knowing I was deeply and unconditionally loved. There was never a time I doubted that. Through it all, they were always there, providing both a soft place to land or a round of applause; miss you dad. One of the last messages dad gave me before his health failed was, “don’t let anyone tell you you can’t do something, trust yourself”. I hold that bit of advice close to me these days. I’m honored to be their daughter.
