Happy first Sunday in March.  This month supposedly will herald the first days of spring but as far as I can see, snow rules.  We’ve still got the now black mounds from the blizzard and expect more of the refresh white stuff today.  Friends are in town to visit (read: check up on me). Two […]

Serene Sunday: Kyrie

I’m behind in writing again.  While looking for the Catholic hymn “Kyrie,” I came upon this song “Kyrie Eleison” by Mr. Mister.  “Kyrie, eleison” (or “Lord, have mercy”) is a liturgical response of the people to intentions mentioned in the Prayer of the Faithful.  Mr. Mister used the phrase for this 1985 hit.  Even though […]

Weathering a bit of post-NaNoWriMo and pre-holiday blues, so I’ve returned to blogging on orders of Dr. G.  Write, she said. Wrote it on her pad and everything.   So, here am I writing. I think. Anyway, I finally saw Desolation of SmOUg by accident, by that I mean my nose caught a whiff of […]

Serene Sunday: May It Be

I’m not a fan of the Lord of the Rings trilogy although I’ve seen all the movies.  (Yes, somehow the mystique of Middle Earth escaped me).  So I had to be reminded about the following song.  A few listenings later, it’s clearly a great pick for Serene Sunday.  So enjoy May It Be, sung by […]

Serene Sunday: Blue Bayou

Recently, Linda Ronstadt announced that she has multiple sclerosis and can no longer sing.  She’d had symptoms for seven or eight years but was diagnosed only recently because of voice issues.  The news shocked and devastated her as well as fans around the world.  I felt deeply saddened because she was one of the truly […]

I’ve just made the mistake of drinking a strong latte with my meds; saying LOUD HEAD BANGING MUSIC fits my mood is an understatement.  However, that’s not “serene.”  Hold on, let me play some Mozart.  Ahhh.  Okay, where was I? As a child when I bothered to rise early on Saturdays to watch cartoons, I […]

My two best pals visited for a week.  For a change of pace, I suggested an overnighter in Galena, a scenic historical village in northwest Illinois. It was home of President U.S. Grant and has buildings dating back to the 1820’s although following a fire in 1856, most are pre-civil war.  For the American Midwest, […]

I’m a few weeks late but at least it’s the same month.  Felicia Day, actress and resident internet geek, actually shows off her violin virtuoso skills with the US national anthem, Star Spangled Banner. Written by Francis Scott Key during the War of 1812, it’s essentially a war song that’s also hard to sing. Why […]

I’m having problems with new meds and posting on two hours of sleep.  It does wonders for judgment.  Just sayin’. I still have a jumble of semi-coherent observations about The Hobbit tour bouncing around in my head.  Naturally, Richard Armitage’s interviews have been foremost in my mind.  While he’s evolved over the years in presentation, […]

I dream I move to London. After 10 days of a hormonally induced nosedive, nightmares, and creative paralysis, the grip breaks finally and I dream of moving to London.  I don’t enter a lovely row house in a leafy green village of my fantasy.  Instead in a chain of four consecutive dreams, I dream of the […]
