let it be and the cancer playlist

Someone I love has cancer. The night before we got the diagnosis, there was looming sense of dread.  Everything that I'd been pinning my hopes on had been ruled out.  Laying bed that night, I knew what the next day would bring.  A part of me wanted to google cancer or take a stroll into … Continue reading let it be and the cancer playlist

Summer Music Series VI

Alright, alright.  Summer is almost over, but not quite yet.  Some kids may have started school (my grad school classes are going into their 3rd week, ugh), but everyone knows that summer is not officially over until the last night of Labor Day weekend. So let's go on a drive, crew.  It's still warm enough … Continue reading Summer Music Series VI

Summer Music Series IV

   I love driving around with music blaring, singing along (loudly), and telling stories. It's what makes long road trips so much more bearable (than the alternative of long stretches of weird silence).  This one song always makes me think of babies, well the artist did write it after the birth of his daughter, and … Continue reading Summer Music Series IV

Stuck in the car with Leesha (Summer Music Series III)

Summer is the season for long car trips and if you're traveling anywhere with me, you can be sure of singing...and talking about memories (or trivia) associated with songs. "I Just Called To Say I Love You" - written and performed by Stevie Wonder Late one night when I was a young kid, our telephone … Continue reading Stuck in the car with Leesha (Summer Music Series III)

Stuck in the car with Leesha (Summer Music Series II)

I will however, stop singing periodically to ask you know what the song really means … Continue reading Stuck in the car with Leesha (Summer Music Series II)

Stuck in the car with Leesha (Summer Music Series 1)

Summer is the season for driving in the U.S. and if there's anything we can be sure of - it's that at some point (especially in the greater DC area), we'll be stuck in traffic....or if you're in the car with other people, perhaps a fight over who is the radio commander. But if you're in the car … Continue reading Stuck in the car with Leesha (Summer Music Series 1)

Confessions of an office worker…

Confession #1 - I listen to pandora on my headphones while doing work and....sigh, sometimes I can't help it, I have to dance or mouth the words. I can't tell you how many times I've had to adjust dancing arms or head bobbing into convincing stretches when people walk by. But I don't think they're … Continue reading Confessions of an office worker…
