Just when you think you’re fine
I was getting ready to settle in to blog when I discovered the site was blank. Like…super blank. The words “Nothing to see here, move along” were pretty damn appropriate. In that moment, two things ran through my head: why did I ever decide to willingly create a site and do this again; and I […]
That’s a Wrap!
Whoa. I lost November somewhere…and part of December too. Where do the weeks go? I had big plans for writing, and then the Hall of Fame came along, and bam! It’s now December 13. What?!? I won’t lie, real life has been kicking my ass lately. I’ve had concerts and other holiday performances to rehearse […]
Shock and gratitude
I wasn’t even planning to blog, much less sit down and write a follow-up to Saturday’s Hall of Fame ceremony. After all, I wasn’t even there! I sat here at home, tuned in to the red carpet bit on YouTube, then settled in for a night of television. I checked my phone a couple of […]
Don’t Stop Believing
Since 2005, I have traveled to see Duran Duran quite a few times. Some trips have been very short – like a three day weekend to and from New York City. (Why I ever thought that was a good idea, I’ll never know) I felt like I was there and back within a blink of […]
I acknowledge the FOMO!
In fandom, FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) is a huge deal. A “Big Thing”, if you will. No one wants to miss a single thing, but some of us—okay, many of us—have to pick and choose what we do. Maybe it’s finances that deter us, perhaps it is geographic location, or both. (I haven’t forgotten […]
Buongiorno, famiglia mia!!
I am back. (the title says hello, or good day, my family!!) Truthfully, I landed back on US soil last week (I think it was Wednesday). As most can guess, I’ve been getting reacquainted with my house, family and schedule. Gizmo, my darling dog, is back home. He’s still giving me the “You LEFT me” […]
Life is worth the discomfort
Hi there. Again I find myself saying, “What should I be doing right now?” The answer is (as always) “not blogging.” Except that you know what? Sometimes, I really NEED to blog, and that’s okay. This is one of those times. I know this website is “technically” supposed to be about being a DD fan. […]
No Way to Fight It
I remember when I used to search for song lyrics to title my blogs. It was fun for a while, but somewhere along the line, I grew tired of having to search through songs. I knew every last line, had used many of them multiple times, and couldn’t seem to make the lyrics I had […]
It is a process
I used to have a very clear memory of the day I wrote the first blog for my first site. There is still this gauzy, vague sort of picture I have in my minds eye of that morning. I was sitting at my small kitchen table, nervously tapping the keys. The memory I have of […]
