The Sunday Post: On Mother’s Day and Writing

Happy Mother’s Day! It’s ironic that on my first Mother’s Day since moving closer to my children I didn’t see either of them today. I’m not complaining though. My oldest was out of town for a wedding and I spent the weekend at her place taking care of the pets. I heard from my youngest…

Music Fridays: Dancing in the Dark

I’m loving the cool 70s vibe in this video of the new Juanes cover of Springsteen’s Dancing in the Dark. Juanes is one of my favorite artists and it looks like his next album will be covers that influenced him as a music lover and musician. I’m one of those that didn’t really listen to…

My Single Life: Day 74

As you may have already figured out, I’ve been working on myself over the last several months. From practicing yoga and meditating, to reading and listening to podcasts, I’m trying to cover as many bases as I can. Of course there are days when I want to disregard all the knowledge and insight I’m gathering…

The Sunday Post: Sunday Drive

I went for another Sunday drive today, this time to the North Carolina Arboretum near Asheville. It was a beautiful day that ended with a late lunch at a barbecue place. I don’t have a lot of words to share with you. Maybe a full day in the car with someone used up all my…

Music Fridays: Dance for the Hell of It

Yesterday was International Dance Day and I didn’t dance! Well, maybe just a few salsa steps in my kitchen, a little bit of chair dancing in my office chair, and bit of swaying back and forth as we listened to the guy busking on the streets outside during dinner. Close enough? This song is one…

Savannah Smiles

Straight out of the notebook that stays at my side, including last week’s road trip. It’s not so much poetry as stream-of-consciousness writing, with little to no editing. Texting in the park About toys, gifts, strangers, and drinks Smiling by myself Sitting on a bench Listening to the birds And the clop of the horse’s…

The Sunday Post: A Quick Recap

Warning: This post is going to ramble. It will cover many seemingly unrelated topics. (Yes, I know. This will not be the first time.) I might get somewhere by the time I’m finished writing, but I might not. I will reward you with some pretty pictures at the end. I’m back home after my road…

Music Fridays: Moon River

I almost forgot to post this today! I just returned from Savannah, where I learned that it was the home of Johnny Mercer, author of many songs we all know and love, including this classic. Here is Andy Williams’s version, one of my favorites.

The Sunday Post: It’s All Good (aka My Single Life: Day 60)

Isn’t it wonderful to have something to look forward to? I know I’m not alone in thinking that it’s about damned time that we all had something good to look forward to, something to be excited about. I’m getting on the road this week to celebrate my birthday with a solo road trip. Just months…
