The Sunday Post: 499

If you noticed that I skipped this past week’s Music Fridays post, I’m sorry. I had something planned but time got away from me and then I couldn’t find the song I wanted to share. If I had posted it as scheduled, this would now be post #500! I have a couple of ideas for…

A Year Later…

At this time exactly one year ago, I was sitting in my house, just a few miles from where I’m sitting now, trying to be brave enough to ask a very important question: What’s wrong? Why does it feel like you’re drifting farther and farther away from me? What is going on and what can…

The Rose

Know you how roses came to grace the world?A feather from an angel’s pinion fell,A sunbeam caught and kissed it as it whirled,And left it blushing on the earth to dwell.—by Ruby Archer

The Sunday Post: Fences (Day 94)

I had a revelation last night. It didn’t happen while washing dishes, or taking a shower, or while driving. That’s usually how and when they happen, of course, when I’m in the middle of something else and all of a sudden the pot that was simmering in the back burner starts to whistle and demands…

Music Fridays: A Threesome with George

George Michael was one of my favorite artists. He was such a talented songwriter and performer. I was heartbroken when he passed away Christmas 2016. I consider myself lucky to have seen him perform life. I was at the first show of his first US tour in 1988 and loved every minute of it. Yesterday…

Mosaic

My body and soul My future, present, and past Are all but little pieces assembled By a very large cast. I drink my coffee black because That’s how he taught me to drink it And I root against the ‘fins just ‘cause He gets angry when they lose (that’s childish, I’ll admit). I surround myself…

The Sunday Post: Sorting out Feelings

Someone asked me today about my feelings for my ex: Did I have any? Is there anything still unresolved (in my head or heart)? They asked me this question while letting me know I didn’t have to answer right away, or ever if I didn’t want to. I did answer, and right now I can’t…

Music Fridays: Going Down South

Here’s something a little different for me and brand-new from The Black Keys’ new album, Delta Kream. I used to have one of their earlier albums and think I might need to add this one to my library. I also like the single the released last month, Crawling Kingsnake. I think I could dance a…

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…
