Dancing Shoes

I don’t necessarily want to ‘drop it like it’s hot,’ but I do love to dance. These days I dance in my living room, or my office, pretty much every room in my house depending on what I’m doing.  I dance to all sorts of music and sometimes when I’m folding laundry, I use the…

Rolled Sleeves

I can relate. Not to the mom, I am the Steve Martin character, at least I can get like him more often than not, and I am married to the King of the Roller Coaster.  Calm, steady, deal with it as it comes, live for today.  Hands up and tight turns are in Michael’s DNA. I’m a…

Coat Strings

I never feel more like a rat in a maze than I do in a Metro or subway system. Don’t get me wrong, there’s an energy.  So many different kinds of people moving en mass, all with different agendas, it’s electric, but the the underground shuffle is a soulless place.  There’s very little eye contact,…

Red Socks

You can be the outcast or be the backlash of somebody’s lack of love, or you can start speaking up. More than anything else, more than any other “life skill,” I wish this for my children. Actually, I wish it for all of us. It’s Friday.  Enjoy. That’s all from the laundry room.  Sleep Naked.

White Sheet

I’m lost, broken down the middle of my heart. I have playlists that I listen to while I write.  Sometimes I work in silence if I’m arguing with myself, but for the most part there’s music.  I listen to the gamut. This song is on my “Time to Write About Ache” playlist.  I really love…

What’s the deal with Stonehenge? Humor is subjective, but I honestly don’t understand how Evonne did not think this was the funniest thing she’d ever seen.  It reminds Michael of a really bad Tears for Fears video. I must just have a super wicked sense of humor because I cry laughing every time.  “46 miles…

Pocket Square

Above all else, I like quirky.  Add intelligent to quirky and I’m a goner. I love John McIntrye. You may, or may not, know that he was the copy editor and is now a production manager for the Baltimore Sun.  No, I do not live in Maryland, but he is a pretty big deal.  Mr.…

Base Layer

Papa was a rollin stone.  Wherever he laid his hat was his home. The bass is usually my favorite, especially in this song, but in my next life…I’m the drummer. Super excellent song and the talent is all over the place.  It’s Friday!  Enjoy. That’s all from the laundry room.  Smooth the Sheets.

High Performance Fabric

Give me the thing that I love.  Put your hands up, make them touch. When I was in college I used to go to this dinky theatre and watch performance artists. Lady Gaga is the queen of performance art. There is a difference between getting half naked and gyrating on stage for the sake of…
