For some the holidays aren’t the most wonderful time of the year, but rather can deliver a bad case of the “holiday blues”. Unrealistic high expectations can sometimes turn holiday cheer into a not so ho-ho happy time.
Mack once celebrated Christmas alone stuck in a gas station café in northern Alberta during a wicked snow storm. But Mack, determined to beat the blues, wandered over to the jukebox (a really big iPod for those under the age of 25) and selected a song he has played at Christmas ever since.
Drift Away by Dobie Gray, a 1973 soul anthem worked its magic for Mack that snowy night decades ago in Alberta.
Songwriter and singer Dobie Gray died this month at the age of 71 of complications of cancer surgery, but his upbeat, wistful tribute to song writers continues to lift spirits.
This holiday give yourself a break. Do something you enjoy and give a listen to Drift Away
Happy Holidays (and see you back here in January!) from everybody at the Public Relations Certificate Program at SFU Vancouver!
