listen…

  It started with a song… listen. ; Open your mind and your heart, breathe in what others are saying to you, with a look, a touch, a sob and yes even words!   Listen to the music that is your life, involve your senses and take it all in. You may be surprised at what

Love

  Love is a gift. It costs us nothing to give and returns to us a hundredfold. I’ve been trying to make it a part of my holidays in my actions, in my thoughts, the gifts I am giving… I am trying to give a bit of my heart away. So many words have been

Perfect Moments

Describing Perfect Moments… “She smiled and said with an ecstatic air: “It shines like a little diamond”, “What does?” “This moment. It is round, it hangs in empty space like a little diamond; I am eternal.” ― Jean-Paul Sartre, The Age of Reason   It started with a song… well an entire album actually! I’ve

Normal?

It started with a song… I’ve been listening to Snow Patrol a lot the past few days. Chasing Cars to be exact. It’s one of those songs I listen to when things aren’t quite ‘normal’ in my life. I’ve been quite scared the past few weeks and just wishing for a wee bit of normal

Dr. Seuss: “Fun is Good”

A Hawaiian luau, a child’s fifth birthday party, early Alzheimer’s, a divorce and music; weekends are made of such things. It started with a song… yes, today it really did. Another sleepless night, wired on prednisone and battling nausea I tried to redirect my thoughts to the events of the past two days while listening

A life worth living…

It started with a song, well not really but sometimes it helps to say it did. It actually started six years, four months and 15 days (not that I’m counting), but today it seems like only yesterday. A diagnosis, my world turned upside down, and a time when nothing and no one seemed to matter.
