Spirit in the SKY - Sky Songs in Celebration of Nature

 Per Merriam Webster, the meaning of sky is:
1. The upper atmosphere or expanse of space that constitutes an apparent great vault or arch over the earth
2. Heaven sense
 
The origins of the word are from the Old Norse sky meaning “cloud, abode of God.”
 
I just returned from a trip out West, where sky definitely seems to take on the latter definition and derivation, truly heaven sense and the abode of God, especially in Wyoming and Montana. The sky seems to go on forever, making the surrounding landscape and mountains even more breathtaking. Basking in such tranquil, awe-inspiring, picturesque, beautiful vistas is gloroius and soothing to the soul.
 
If you have the opportunity, head out West. Visit our National Parks. In a time when so many are retreating to a life indoors, between work responsibilities, COVID restrictions, and electronics permeating virtually every facet of life, the outdoors still beckons.
 
The playlist contains some fantastic songs, with the likes of Johnny Cash, Journey, The Animals, ELO, The Beatles, John Denver, Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Allman Brothers, Jimi Hendrix, INXS, U2, Jackson Brown, Moody Blues, Pink Floyd, Elton John, Joe Jackson, Coldplay, Los Lonely Boys. Some great music. Enjoy!
