This year I've been listening to this band called "Lake Street Dive" a lot. They have this song called "Mistakes".
Listen to the song here (https://youtu.be/Ya9lvA1POfQ) if you're curious.
Then write your own song about a mistake you've made in your life. It can be 4 lines or 40, as long as your heart is in it.

" FIRST DAY OF MY LIFE. "
A well known song by 'Bright Eyes'.
With a video clip worth watching. So if you have a few minutes to spare, copy and paste this one in your browser:

"What is Beauty?"
Yes, I already wrote a letter on the subject. But I suddenly got struck by pure beauty. And I'll share it with you so you can see it too...
Because if you go to the "discover people" feed, you'll find thousands of faces. Serious faces, smiling faces and even angry faces. You'll find faces in all sorts of shapes and sizes.
But what amazes me most is the thought that each and every one of these people come here to let their creativity speak. They share their heartbreaks, learned lessons and happy life experiences with all these other beautiful faces.
It made me feel like I belong. This family I picked myself. The lettrs family.
You're all so beautiful!
To me, beauty is something that can be found everywhere. In the green fields, the blue sky and all the (colorful) animals in between.
Beauty can also be found in people. In their strength, their faith, their compassion and their smiles.
Beauty is everywhere if you're willing to see it.
Some of the best songs have been collaborations between artists.
That's why I'd love to see you team up with one or multiple other writers and write a song together.
It doesn't matter how, as long as the end result is a song.
