“For me, songwriting is something I have to do ritually. I don’t just wait for inspiration; I try to write a little bit every day.” ~ Sean Lennon


This reminds me of a friend of mine.  She’s a children’s author.  A writer.  She writes every day.  Whether there are ideas or no ideas, she writes.  She doesn’t wait for inspiration.

Sometimes you just have to go for it. The ideas will come.

Question número uno:

If you were an ice cream cone, how many scoops and favors would you be and why?

~ 3. Butter pecan, mint chocolate chip, and blueberry – because those are my favorites and they are delicious and because 3 is a nice round(ed) number.


Question number 2:

Are you left or right handed?

~ right.

Question #3

Before you make a phone call, do you rehearse what you’re going to say?

~ yes – we’ve discussed insecurities before. So that’s that.

And D:

How many rings before you answer the phone?

~ like Cee! I don’t. It goes to the recorder. I’m not big on phone conversation and there’s that introvert thing. So that’s THAT!

Bonus question:

What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

~ I’m grateful my mom’s doing better.
~ I will be grateful if this continues.

A glorious day.

Clouds are paintbrushed onto a blue sky.

Bare branches are reaching for the sun.

A chill clings persistently to the air, but the sun’s being much more cooperative than it has in a while.

We walk, hand in hand, taking in this glorious day.

Look.  Up in the sky.  A bird? A plane? Superman????  No!

At first glance, we think it’s a nest.

But a closer look, and from a different perspective, and …

Spring is just around the corner! Hang in.  I swear.  Better days are coming.
