My music playlist for today (June 2, 2012 edition)

The family will be doing something tonight that it hasn’t done in quite some time — heading out to watch the matriarch of the house play the violin and sing with a symphony orchestra.

My lovely lady and I went out last night to help the West Valley Symphony of Utah set up for tonight’s concert at Granger High School.  I’m sure there are a fair amount of jumbled nerves gathering.  I know Amy’s feeling it, particularly about her singing part in the theme from the Ennio Morricone score to “Once Upon A Time In The West,” but I also know she’s practiced it enough that her voice should soar when it comes time for her to perform.

Our children aren’t so much into classical music, or the patriotic and more western flavor that they’ll hear tonight.  But they do enjoy watching their mother perform.  As for me, there’s always a feeling of pride in me as I watch my lovely lady up on the stage playing the violin and especially stepping out to the front and center of the stage to sing with that beautiful voice of hers.  And I know, from watching and listening to her sing with the orchestra already in rehearsal twice before, that it’ll be an experience that will raise goosebumps in me.

I can’t wait.

About A View From The Middle (Class)

Hi, my name's John. I've thought about this blogging stuff for a number of years now. I got into it for real on November 10, 2011, after suddenly losing my job in late October that year. I've been blogging ever since, and I kept it up on a daily basis over a period of a year and four months of being unemployed or under-employed, to try and paint a picture of what being jobless with a family to support can be like. Finally, on February 28, 2013, I got a better job that put us back into the "middle class." But then that job went away, and I took a job as a transit bus driver that put us more in a lower income bracket. Now, I want to blog again on a more regular basis to tell of the kinds of struggles people like us go through as we work toward something better. Who knows, maybe I can actually turn this blogging stuff into a way to earn a living someday! If you go to my blog at and click on my About page, it'll tell you a lot about me -- maybe more than you ever wanted to know. I'm just your average, laid-back guy who's GOING TO MAKE IT IN THIS WORLD, despite all the roadblocks thrown in the way. I also launched a "niche" blog on music at that I'm very excited about because of the popularity of music playlist articles here. Also, check out and "Like" this blog's Facebook page at for instant updates. Look forward to seeing y'all around!
