Mood Monday-Here We Go Magic-Ordinary Feeling

Mood Monday. Have you noticed Mood Monday comes on Tuesday mornings, lately? Well, never mind about that. I will try to get back in the groove next week. But for now… this is a weekend for the happy, joyous record books.   This was the kind of weekend which included laid back family dinners, a…

Small Black-Boy’s Life

Fall is creeping into my life earlier and earlier down in the south, despite the rising unbearable temperatures and half of the country still enjoying vacations. School seems to start too soon and the preparation for the year is always a big production. Have you noticed that school supplies are stocked in all of the…

Maybird-Big Sun Explosion

My Monday mood brings you the perfect tune this Tuesday. “Objects appear a little more clear when they’re nearer…..” Mondays can be hard. The reality of life sets in and the laughter and joy of the weekend subsides to the harshness of the start of a new work week. My mood today is a bit…

Beecher’s Fault-Never Believe In You

We are finally here….the weekend. Sometimes I think I wait for it, wait for it, wait for it, and then it comes and goes…leaving me in the ‘wait for it’ mode once again. I am not really sure why the weekend is so special to me, because I work just as much over Saturday and…

Lady Lamb the Beekeeper-Billions of Eyes

Do you ever want to buck the widespread customary idea of what brings happiness and peace? Is it a mansion filled with stuff? A place on the water that you can fish every day? A souffle that comes out all puffy and  perfect? A soft, cozy pillow to rest your head at night? Conversation that…

Porches.-Prism

Well, this was supposed to be a Mood Monday song, but time slipped away. So instead, I have this tasty Tuesday tune for you, that will almost certainly drop into a song for Wednesday. Yep, that’s how this week is going for me. Swirling time slipping away, out of my control.  I need calm, simple…

Gospels-Sleepwalkers

Mood Monday. My mind today is on sleep, beautiful sleep. I hate waking up cranky. If I had experienced a good night’s sleep, I am thinking my mood today would be vastly improved. The alarm of Mother Earth went off last night……in the middle of the night (4:26 am to be exact), in the city…
