It’s Never Too Late

Three weeks ago, I made a summer playlist. Does that seem silly? The last day of summer is the day after tomorrow. I included songs with summer in the title, like Hot Fun in the Summertime by Sly and the Family Stone, Summer Breeze by Seals and Croft, Summer in the City by the Lovin’… Continue reading It’s Never Too Late

A Night with the Girls

If you haven’t seen Thelma and Louise in a while or ever, it’s time to do it.  My friend rented an entire movie theater for a screening with a bunch of women last week. I usually head to my beach town every other Thursday, but the movie party was on a Thursday night, so I… Continue reading A Night with the Girls

Live Music in a Virtual World

Last weekend I watched five livestream music events on my laptop. I was out of town but didn’t feel too lonely until the last livestream guy looked right into the camera and sang Blackbird (Beatles) to me.  I had requested it in the chat feed. “This one is for you, Susan.” The next thing I… Continue reading Live Music in a Virtual World

Pandemic Friday

(re-run) My friends are going out. They are eating at restaurants with no masks on, and they are sitting shoulder to shoulder at the table – not all from one household! I am chicken to do that.  I watch too much news and read too many newspapers. Yes, everything we do in life is a… Continue reading Pandemic Friday

Musical Cleaning Day (waiting for plumber)

I am cleaning today. The plumber said he’d be by mid-morning, but it wasn’t not looking good.  I worked on a review for a new children’s book coming out next month. I watched some Dry Bar Comedy while I digested my breakfast.  That is no longer a multi-tasking feature of my aging body. Reflux. It’s… Continue reading Musical Cleaning Day (waiting for plumber)

Keeping Musicians Going During the Pandemic

I am a dancer and a music lover. When all the summer outdoor concerts were canceled in 2020, I grieved for weeks.  Then I decided that my goal during the pandemic would be to fund the musicians, so that they wouldn’t quit playing and get a real job. Many musicians quickly learned how to livestream… Continue reading Keeping Musicians Going During the Pandemic

The Pandemic’s Silver Lining

Now that it’s a week away from the official start of summer, I look back at the past three months and realize that the pandemic has allowed me to hit the pause button and do things I never thought I’d have time to do. Things I was saving for whan I became an old lady.… Continue reading The Pandemic’s Silver Lining

Where’s a Ten-year-old Kid When You Need One?

I am back at the beach, I and realize how lucky I am to have a place to go during a pandemic for a change of scenery. Someone on Facebook commented on my last set of photos, saying to be careful because I could be fined for leaving my county. I didn’t want to admit… Continue reading Where’s a Ten-year-old Kid When You Need One?

Memorial Day Weekend – Hello to Summer

My next-door neighbor just told me that he had the Coronavirus in December, that he was down for 10 days, lost weight, lost his sense of smell and taste, and felt like he had a big rubber band around his chest.  He had to sleep in a chair because it hurt to lie down.  He… Continue reading Memorial Day Weekend – Hello to Summer
