Mary Chapin Carpenter - Sometimes Just the Sky

Sometimes just the sky is dark and grey which follows your mood of the day
but not today thanks to last night and seeing my heroine Mary Chapin Carpenter perform at her sold out show in the Heights.   Thirty years she's been singing and I've been a fan of hers ever since as her songs hit so close to home bringing tears and joy and sorrow yet providing shelter from the storms of life.  I remember her album: Time*Sex*Love* which is still one of my all time favorites and was played endlessly at the time of its release.  Perhaps now with fall here, its time again to open a bottle of wine and give that album another listen.

Frank Sinatra - Meditation (Meditação)

In my loneliness... I need your caress, a glass of wine, a massage, a kiss from you, a shoulder to lean on but you are far away and here I sit closing my eyes to fight the sadness, and so I wait for you while meditating...

One of the saddest songs by old blue eyes himself.

Lordy, lordy where did 40 go?!  40 years since the class of 1978 at Bellaire High.  Nice to catch up with old friends and classmates and mourn those who have passed.  Miss the old gang of friends who would pile up in one car for a lunch run during our senior year--favorite place to head to was Der Wiener Schnizel!!  Oh and Sexy Rexy is still as SEXY as ever--even more so now with the grey tint temples on that full set of hair and not bald like so many others! I got a hand shake but sure would've loved a hug!!  Missed the 30 but did attend the 10 and 20 and looking forward to the 50 year reunion!  Sad to see fewer and fewer of us from a class of over 700!!  Rest in Peace to John Ruth (my middle school crush) and to fellow classmate Mickey Pate.

Spring Equinox

This song has been on my repeat playlist of late and appropriate on this first day of Spring.  Although, surprisingly today didn't feel like a spring--more like the first day of fall as the weather was absolutely glorious!!  Not many more days like this left as we near April and inch closer to the dreaded summer heat and humidity here.

Messy Hair

So love a day when I'm at home with no plans for going anywhere and hair is barely brushed and wearing no makeup and my stubborn spirit is recharged and yes wild is my favorite color!

Danke Schoen-thank you for all the joy ...
the picture show on the second balcony...
You didn't want to go dutch treat...
You were sweet as always
No need to explain
I will always recall those special moments....
Thank you for seeing me again as we go our separate ways ...
