When the Right One Comes Along

Today is our anniversary. Number 13. I’ve been sitting here staring at the screen for several minutes now trying to form a coherent thought in an attempt to describe my love and my relationship. The only things that keep coming are rushes of words… tender, grateful, peace, safety, rock-solid, trust, truth, faith, honesty, center, love,Continue reading “When the Right One Comes Along”

Songs of Hope and Sorrow – You Were Born

Our granddaughter just had her first birthday. She is light and love and magic. She has the biggest grin imaginable, her face scrunching all up, eyes getting narrow, and her mouth, with it’s little fangs, gets huge. Light beams out of her. Her smile matches her personality. Curious, determined to keep up with her olderContinue reading “Songs of Hope and Sorrow – You Were Born”

Play Through

K and I were driving to and from Chicago a couple of days ago, listening to music, and singing and dancing in the car.  Yes, we do this, and often.  It makes us laugh.  We have a lot of fun together.  While all of that was going on I noticed certain songs, which made meContinue reading “Play Through”

Pondering a Playlist

Anyone who knows me knows about my love of music. It’s always been there, and in all likelihood started when I was in the womb. I come by it naturally. It’s in my genes. My dad was what some might call a musical genius. An ability to play any instrument put into his hands heContinue reading “Pondering a Playlist”

Dominic Turns 1

. Today is Dominic Thomas’ first birthday. He is bright and loving and joyful and curious. He laughs and smiles a lot and doesn’t cry much at all. He makes his pterodactyl sound, for everything, occasionally throwing in a yeah, yeah just so we know he can talk if he wants to, and he’s steadyContinue reading “Dominic Turns 1”

Music To My Ears

I just spent the better part of the last two hours alternating between watching the snow fall out the window over my desk and looking at/listening to best album lists of 2013. I pride myself on being somewhat of a music aficionado (a word I can say and understand, but apparently not spell correctly withoutContinue reading “Music To My Ears”

Hooked On A Feeling

Possibly the worst video I’ve ever seen.  I mean, what’s up with the creepy strange guy who keeps popping up in the background.  It’s so bad it’s sort of compelling.  I’m disturbed by it, yet somehow I’ve watched it a couple of times.   This isn’t exactly the Blue Swede version I love.  How canContinue reading “Hooked On A Feeling”

Playing For Change

Liz, fellow angle and rock star human being, shared this with a few of us today at the office. This is one of the coolest, most inspiring, videos I’ve seen. Ever. If this doesn’t make you feel good about being alive, living on this planet, and getting to share the human experience every day, IContinue reading “Playing For Change”

Stand For Children Video

Mom… I agree with you. No matter what our politics, kids need to have a higher profile where our government spending is concerned. I see the aftermath when the cuts happen. What do we want… educated children, or a much higher drop out rate. People may say there’s no correlation, but trust me, there is.

Another Wedding Idea

I was looking around, and will continue to I’m sure, for ideas and such on how to go about performing a marriage ceremony. I came across this little bit from a film called “Little Murders”. Some of it is slightly… uh… shall we say colorful… so if you’re not into that, feel free to skipContinue reading “Another Wedding Idea”

Modeling After a Minister

I happen to love the movie The Princess Bride. It’s up there in my top five I’d say. And it is to this favored movie of mine that I now turn for ideas about how to go about performing a proper marriage ceremony. Mary? Martin? What say you to this as an idea for howContinue reading “Modeling After a Minister”
