Where Does One Wear One’s Heart when Sleeveless?

From the habits of Leonardo da Vinci, I try to come up with three things to be curious about each morning to cultivate my curiosity that is one of my Signature Strengths, of which using it helps keep me happy and alive in life. This morning, I came up with this question

When one is not wearing sleeves, where does the English language think one should wear one’s heart?

It references the English idiom about wearing your heart on your sleeve, meaning  showing your intimate emotions in an honest and open manner. It references a common element in garments, which is the sleeve, but is not always found in a garment worn as a top, to which I then ask the equivalent of what if that element wasn’t there? What then?

Anybody want to suggest something? Preferably with a case for your answer? 🙂

A National Anthem Melody, Radical Reinterpretation Challenge

I heard this beautiful, creative and inspirational recent rendition of the Star Spangled Banner just now.

 

And I thought to myself afterward, what if more songwriters and/or performers did more radical reinterpretations of their national anthems’ melodies? Many, if not most, who perform a national anthem put some “interpretation” into the often sung songs. However, most aren’t all that original.

So who out there might want to try? Being Canadian, I’d love to hear some more original interpretations of O Canada. I’d try myself, having been a songwriter, but I have too many things going on right now that can’t wait. I did stop songwriting for times when I’d be less active and mobile, after all, given my inefficiency at it. 🙂

Who’s up for the challenge?
