There are some songs that just resonate with a person for one reason or another. The song SUMMERTIME sung by ELLA FITZGERALD has always hit a chord in me that I can't describe. As today is going to get steamy hot-which, by the way, I love- the song starting playing through my morning as I drank my coffee and began to plan everything I had to get done today. Sometimes we really need to listen to our inner voice and mine is telling me Summertime and the livin is easy.... Maybe I should listen at least for a few hours today. I do have some lemons screaming to be made into lemonade. Happy Summer.

Pop-Start-DAY 37- NIRVANA

I don't know about you but all this facebook stuff and reconnecting with old friends is a little disconcerting sometimes. High-school friends which you assume you will never see again save for every 5 to 20 years at a reunion are all of the sudden a part of your weekly if not daily or hourly, in some cases, life. It is wonderful in some ways and I truly do enjoy knowing they are leading happy and well adjusted lives, considering what we could have turned out to be. However, it hasn't stopped at facebook. All of the sudden I am having dreams of doing the Viennese waltz with a classmate to the applause of hundreds. (No, I don't watch Dancing with the Stars) I have always believed life brings people in and out of your life for a reason. Is facebook messing with destiny or is destiny truly an unruly child playing a massive joke on us all? My class had two class songs with dueling personalities also. Yesterday- Boys 2 Men and, of course, SMELLS LIKE TEEN SPIRIT- NIRVANA

My husband and I are coming up on our 5th wedding anniversary in a week. Thinking back to when we first dated in 1993 I see how far we have come. I was 18 immature and insecure. He was the normal selfish 21 year old. We traded our "power" back and forth- who was in control at the moment. Drama. Hot and cold which led to on and off for a few years. I remember wishing I could cast a spell of some sort. Voodoo him into being exactly who I wanted him to be. Come to think of it maybe I did cast some sort of love spell or maybe he did because I have to say we have it pretty good. We may not be exactly the person the other would want us to be at every given moment but hey... he's mine. I PUT A SPELL ON YOU- NINA SIMONE
