Music Fridays: A Threesome of Covers

I couldn’t decide which way to go for this week’s musical post. Since it’s Valentine weekend, I knew I wanted some kind of love song. But as a single woman (and someone very much opposed to that idea just months ago), I knew it wouldn’t be a traditional love song. I think the three songs…

Feels Like Yesterday

I shot the video below eleven years ago today. We were in Panama while the East Coast was in the middle of a blizzard. We were lucky to get a flight out during what they were calling “Snowmageddon.” We spent that week basking in the sunshine and sweating in the tropical humidity. My sister and…

The Sunday Post: Familiarity

It snowed last night! If my daughter hadn’t texted me though I might not have noticed until this morning. I had the shades down in my living room, watching a couple more episodes of “How to get away with murder” and hoping to stay awake long enough to catch Dan Levy’s appearance on SNL, and…

Music Fridays: Fly Away

LIving alone it gets pretty quiet in my little nest. I have gone a whole day at least once or twice without talking to anyone but myself (I say things like “What was it I was about to do?” or “Why did I walk into this room?”) Music makes the workday go by a little…

Thankful

It’s early still on this Tuesday morning. My coffee is just about ready, I’m dressed for work (in comfy yoga pants, of course), and I’ve already practiced some morning yoga. I was going to write this week about what I discovered, if anything, about myself during January, a month bursting with lofty intentions to establish…

The Sunday Post: Growth

This week’s bloom was about growth. Blossoming. Doing what you didn’t think was possible. I’ve been doing a lot this month that I wasn’t all that sure was possible not too long ago. There’s the more obvious things like yoga every day, thinking of ten things every day that I’m grateful for, drinking more water,…

Music Fridays: Slow Dancing

This week’s song is fairly new, I think, and certainly new to me. I’m not familiar with Aly & AJ either but when this song came up in one of the Apple Music playlists I listen to while I work, it got my attention and I was swaying in my chair. I’ve posted dance music…

The Ringing

The ringing in my ears Is my omniscient companion All-knowing Ever-present Drowning out my thoughts Stifling my dreams Breathe in Breathe out I count my breaths To ten and start again I listen to the storm Hoping the thundering booms Will do the trick And when the night is still I turn to my phone…
