Do you respond  to the test on Face Book that analyze your name? I do, on occasion; sometimes I post them, sometimes I don’t. Yesterday I found that my personal anthem is Stronger by Kelly Clarkson. I’m a fan of Kelly’s and enjoy her music. This particular song express emotions that fit my story.

Open Door and Abby

Monday, Monday


I love Monday’s; Ronovan’s Haiku Challenge and Monday’s Music .  Martha is running errands and having lunch out. I’ll post her two haiku upon her return.

These two I proudly offer as my contribution.

No Threats

go! leave, it’s no loss
faith inspired me that love keeps
the heart’s door open



my loss was painful
when Abby crossed Rainbow Bridge
love spurred to replace

I learned long ago the more  love you give away, the more you have to give.

I enjoy Kevin Spacey’s talent as an actor. I wouldn’t call myself a fanatic. I’m fanatic about music, is a more accurate statement. I really get excited when I discover someone has a talent for music or plays an instrument. Just by happenstance I discovered Kevin’s ability with the harmonica, and his wicked raspy voice. This was filmed November 19, 2014 in a celebration with Billy Joel when he was honored with the Library Of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular song.

You won’t find a sociological discussion here of how the musical
Grease captures a pivotal moment for the sexual revolution. I’m happy to enjoy the music and pass a few basic facts on to you.

Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey are co-creators. Grease had its Broadway première in 1972, and the public responded in appreciation with the record as the longest-running show in the history of Broadway. Later  John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John starred in the movie version. Here are some clips from the highest-grossing movie musical ever.

I’m dancing and grooving.

Rewind 2014 for Monday’s Music

Maybe some of you hipsters, 20 something, generation Millennials, 1980-2000, will identify with the music references in this YouTube rewind. If you’re inspired, you will explain it to the Silent generation, 1925-1942 (me), and the Baby Boomers, 1943-1964, in the comment section
