Music Fridays: Mi Querido, Mi Viejo, Mi Amigo

I’ve been thinking about my dad this week. It’s been four months now and every once in a while I see something that reminds me of him and it feels like I was just talking to him. Or a song comes on that reminds me of home, of him. This song is a good example….

Music Fridays: You Learn

You may have gathered from my earlier posts this week that my divorce is now final. I don’t really want to keep writing about that in every post but for this week’s music post I thought I should share something to honor that milestone. You grieve, you learnYou choke, you learnYou laugh, you learnYou choose,…

Music Fridays: Don’t Start Now

I was hoping to bring you a new song today, something straight off the list of new music releases, but as of now (Thursday evening) I have not found one I love yet. Instead I offer you something still fairly new, and very much new to me. I’ve only recently started listening to Dua Lipa….

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…

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…

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…

Music Fridays: Better Days

I almost forgot it’s Music Friday! I first heard this song a week or two ago on one of my suggested Apple Music playlists that I listen to while working or cooking. Then I heard it again on the inauguration special the other night and I decided it would be my music selection for this…

Music Fridays: Lil Bit

I feel like dancing again so I’m grooving with Nelly on my couch as I write this. I heard this song for the first time a month or so ago and almost immediately added it to my phone. I don’t have any other tunes by Nelly or Florida Georgia Line, but this one just made…

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. I don’t have much to say about this week’s events in our capital that hasn’t been said so much better by others already. I’m embarrassed, ashamed, angry, disappointed, and shocked. 2021 is…
