Hello to you this morning. It’s about 9:13 am as I start to write to you. How are you? Me? Well I’m feeling tired and sore inside and out but that’s just been my story for some time now. This too shall pass….always does. My body is probably just telling me I’m not the 27 year old I feel like on the inside and I need to mellow the feck out LOL! If only I could listen! The weather is finally getting cooler and tempts me to run out like the dogs every 5 minutes. I think I’ve mentioned our back door is like a doggy door for both the dogs and for me LOL.
This morning I found myself a treat….dear Ben performing with Pink Floyd singing Comfortably Numb! This is one of Kyle and my favorite songs by the band. Do you remember the dream I mentioned having about Ben just being everywhere I looked….well see?! It’s true! LOL! Now he’s singing with bands like Pink Floyd too! Singing is something I have always loved to do and try to do every day, often for most of it lol….just call me little birdy. For as long as I can remember, music has been my thing in whatever form or fashion I could get it in. From being a little 3 or 4 year old girl going to a night club with my stepmom Betty to listen to one of her favorite singers and even handing the singer a request from her, sitting for hours and hours as a teen singing along with David Bowie, Annie Lennox, Grace Jones, Adam Ant, Dolly Parton, Olivia Newton-John and countless others. These days I love sitting in my backyard and singing along with my favorite singers or just making up my own songs…sometimes nothing more than humming….because it comforts me. I live a very solitary life, some would say lonely but I’m comfortable being with myself, and music is how this little birdy gets wings in which to fly to all the corners of the world she’s never been….may not have time or the resources to get to at least in this lifetime.
This song by Bette Midler is special to me, and it came to mind thinking about music giving me wings. My father-in-law and his brother did a special arrangement of this song for Kyle and my wedding day! Kyle’s family is very musical and his Dad, Tim, is a world class fine trumpeter!

When I used to go to Catholic church, it was one of my favorite songs to sing:
One of the better versions I could find of this momentous occasion! An intersection in time and space, reminiscent of another face and place…….both much loved. You know who. What a treat!
This is a recording I did earlier this year. I apologize for it’s shitty quality lol. I don’t have very good “technology” for recording such things but it’s not too bad. I hope if your having a gray day it will lift you up. I keep wanting to make more recordings but have to work on the “tech” part.
