On the Mend

I felt so much better today. I'm not a hundred percent yet, but I am definitely on the mend. So, that being the case, I probably over-did it today. Without a doubt, one of the worst colds I've ever had, and it went on for so long, I was beginning to forget what it felt… Continue reading On the Mend

Toad the Wet Sprocket

https://youtu.be/EPzXA9qfBA8   Toad the Wet Sprocket. Music from the 1990s, classified as Alternative Rock, and Grunge. I'm listening to it again and it's speaking to me as much as it did then, when I was in my mid-twenties, a new mom, working on my poems. I think it's going to be my soundtrack for a… Continue reading Toad the Wet Sprocket

The Music

https://youtu.be/BU-EVLryGxo   I can tell you at least one unequivocally good thing that I did get out of having used social media, it introduced me to some music, way back when, that it's likely I'd have otherwise missed. ~ Teri     https://youtu.be/1xqaQrlXV6o   https://youtu.be/R68rSUlrScU https://youtu.be/paeNnR33i5Q https://youtu.be/obcgU-oLjnA     https://youtu.be/ypwcitHSEQo     https://youtu.be/uv-EZx-qI_8

R.E.M.

https://youtu.be/xwtdhWltSIg I just got home from a couple of (sober) perspective altering days in the mountains. I'm contemplating, mulling, a post about that, but it got me to thinking about these quotes, and this R.E.M.ย  song. "We shall not cease from exploration. And the end of all of our exploring, Will be to arrive where… Continue reading R.E.M.

Don’t Fear the Reaper

https://youtu.be/ClQcUyhoxTg BOC is one of my favorite bands. I wouldn't know where to begin to tell of the impact and influence this music has had on my life, and my writing. But, I've got to be careful not to give away all my secrets. TS

Back at the Writing, and Great Tunes

https://youtu.be/7qUFZwJb9GA The first Pat Benatar song that I remember being aware of was "Heartbreaker." That was about the same time that I was becoming a Tom Petty fan for life. After that she was just always on the radio, seemed like, with one hit song after another. I had three of her albums back in… Continue reading Back at the Writing, and Great Tunes

Optimism

I'll tell you what optimism is, in a world where a fake issue of a real newspaper was distributed by activists, and went viral, and where the media got it wrong again, because they didn't check the facts, or get the complete story, before they ran with it, I realized I'd renewed subscriptions to a… Continue reading Optimism

It’s Me, Pearl.

Itโ€™s Me, Pearl. An Ode to Janis Joplin Itโ€™s never me, itโ€™s you, except that itโ€™s always me, it has never not been me, it has never not been some glaring inadequacy of me, when at my best, it was me, unintentionally, making everyone else feel bad, about whatever they werenโ€™t, because my own inadequacies… Continue reading It’s Me, Pearl.
