Mrs. Brynn’s Opus…

Day 11: #HAWMC – Theme Song

“Imagine your health focus or blog is getting its own theme song. What would the lyrics be? What type of music would it be played to?”

Every Super needs a theme song!  (I’ve got a lov-e-ly bunch of coconuts…doo-de-lee-do…)

I have made many a valiant statuses and tweets to this very fact…

Gosh…I can’t even begin to narrow it down…Thunderous and Bold?  Epic and melancholy?  Light and airy?!?


Light and airy my…..

Anyhoooooooo….it would be “dramatic”…it would be in a minor key for utmost epicness, and have vengeful crescendos and sorrowful diminuendos…

(…and yes, I studied piano at the Royal Conservatory of Music…)

The lyrics would include reference to an unsung hero…a warrior woman searching a path of discovery…it would sound like a cross between a Celtic reverie and a Viking battle-cry.

A theme song…hmmmm…I think the question would be better served asking those who follow my highs and lows (and often flat-on-my-face-es)…how would YOU see the theme song to my made-for-tv-movie kind of life? 😉

In truth, I’ve been working on a song for myself.  True story.

I follow the path of my ancestors…I don’t bring it up much because what you believe in doesn’t matter to me as long as you’re a decent human being taking care to be worthy and true to your own morals and virtues.

However, one of the more important virtues of my path is “Courage.”  In the lore, warriors who die in battle can potentially find themselves in Odin’s Hall…Valhalla.

I would like to challenge the more modern-day version of “Courage” as one of fighting wars of a different kind…

The song that I’m currently working on is entitled, “Her Keys…”  A snippet of the verse:


“What’s this, you speak of…

A warrior, by blademark.

Well, I’m here to show you…

I’ve marks of my own.

For I’ve felt…the cold steel

Run through me…by moonlight.

Yet I did not come to your hall until now….


“I want to know if my key…will fit into…

the doors…of Valhalla…I come here alone.

For I…lived with courage…

…with strenth…and with passion…

To sit…among legends…my heroes…and Gods.”


And there you have it.

The irony?

Sjogren’s has stolen my voice to sing it.

Buggernackles. 🙁
