Happy Monday!

Just click play.

Go ahead and click play again.

Chris Martin of Coldplay is a musical magician when it comes to writing lyrics that paint and transcend the very personal moment of ours that connects us with a particular song, sometimes without us even knowing it. That’s his gift. And it’s one that should be showcased in its various forms, including a simplistic rendition featuring a singer and his piano sans computer-generated influences.

Take heed of Chris Martin’s advice and ‘fly on’ into the workweek with a simplistic yet elevated sense of hope.

Have a Better Week Than Last Week.

Happy Monday

Everybody (except Duke, Villanova, etc.) wants a tournament just like this.

The 2017 version of March Madness is in full-swing and this tournament’s reputation for unbridled craziness lives on for yet another season. Upsets of top programs aren’t necessarily that upsetting (as long as it’s not your team) and that feeling has become a trademark of college basketball’s post-season finale played on courts across the country.

On an unrelated, yet related note, The Chainsmokers and Chris Martin of Coldplay recently collaborated to create a great pop song titled, “Something Just Like This.” Thankfully, someone at the NCAA recognized the perfect compatibility of the aforementioned song and the pursuit of something grand in life…

like an NCAA national championship.

There’s some awesomeness for your Monday.

Have a Better Week Than Last Week.

Grown Ups Also Dream of a Popcorn Volcano

With the past few records, Coldplay has been far less cold and much more play.

There are some bands that seem to have just the right song for us, almost tailor-made when we need it most. Perhaps that’s one of the many reasons why Coldplay is as highly-regarded as they are these days. The British quartet understand how to hit the exact right notes, both melodically and lyrically. While rock n’ roll is the greatest form of music, there are moments when the dial needs to be turned down with an emphasis on day dreaming and our imaginations (even though the latter can contribute to what’s driving us crazy).

Slowing things down and dreaming wildly to find those precious answers to those pressing questions, this time with a perspective far beyond any construct found within our known reality?

Scroll down&down for a much-needed escape this Tuesday.

Why not see the world this way?

Don’t give your imagination the cold shoulder.

Play.

Believable&Unbelievable

When life gets stressful at the end of the workweek, the secret is to look up.

And then up again.

Rewriting the laws of gravity, perspective and reality, Coldplay released their latest music video that may be unlike anything you’ve seen before. At the precise moment you think you know what you’re looking at, Chris Martin and Co. throw you a curve ball…that turns out not to be a curve ball at all.

Ladies and gentlemen, take a visual journey with “Up&Up.”

Is it just me, or is there a Forrest Gump quality in this music video? There’s a subtle feeling of experiencing major historical moments and visiting picturesque locations with an extraordinary, larger-than-life presence.

In that case, here’s to hoping someone hands you a box of chocolates this weekend.

Or whatever it transforms into.
