Chasing Away the Gray

The sun’s coming in through my window Chasing away the gray Music’s flowing through the speakers   I’m dancing in my chair Feeling good this morning Dropping notices in the mail My heart’s in a good space today Cushioned by kind, loving, thoughts Working on establishing momentum Following one good day with another “Breathe love in,…

Sparks

I’ve been thinking a lot about us — I know that’s no surprise. A new year brings back memories of paths traveled, promises made and all that each word implied. We thought coincidence was actually fate leading us time and again toward each other, until finally, at last the spark ignited and all I could…

The Sunday Post: Future

What does the future hold for me? This week’s bloom reminded me that much of that is within my control. So what do I want for my future? One of my goals for the year was to set money aside every paycheck and put it in my savings account.. Having my paycheck go directly to…

Music Fridays: I See America

I found Joy Oladokun on NPR’s list of best songs of 2020 and this song just seemed to work for this week’s selection.

The Sunday Post: Habits

I wasn’t sure what the first Sunday Post of 2021 would be about. New year, new start? A review of 2020 or resolutions for 2021? Think I’ve been doing that all along and already made a few promises to myself for 2021 in earlier posts. As I knew I would, I’ve been all over the…

Music Fridays: Let’s Dance!

It’s over! At last! Let’s celebrate with some dancing, shall we? This is a mostly random selection of songs that came up when looking for happy, cheerful songs. I’ve had several moments over the last couple of months when I got up from desk and started dancing along to what Alexa was playing, just to…
