The NorEaster has Hit

Let the Holiday Stress Begin….


Friday before Christmas… the excitement in the air… Preparations, joy, the music filling the senses, all it bright, all is right. All is right, right? Those runnings and doings and anticipations of great gatherings and love in the air? Right? Folks in good cheer, happiness in the air, people just doing what feels good to […]

Friday the 13th!

Music,Tinsel Grief Hope Holidays


“The connections that we discover sometimes defy logic. Logic however, is based primarily on linear human laws.

All ages, all causes, all “gone too soon” will flash across a screen as people sit watching for a glimpse […]

Remembering Pearl Harbor in the Winter Storm of 2013


As much of our country awoke this morning covered in snow, ice, frigid air across our lands, we also awake to remember a day that went down in history so long ago. Anyone have someone who was there, someone that was called to there? Remembering when “our colors do NOT run”… not then, not now. […]

Nelson Mandela ~ The World has been touched


A great man walked on into the next place yesterday… people in South Africa could be seen gathering in front of his home as the word spread of his transition; the dancing and singing was heard around the world. His life remembered on television as we all remembered his remarkable life. His imprint on the […]

BONNIE RAITT: oh Lawd!


Bonnie Raitt a career that spans over 40 years, and she had a sold out house in Ruth Eckerd Hall on their feet screaming ‘MORE’…. She was all that she has ever been and more, as she came back to play for another 30 or 40 minutes with passion, with the blues and a rendition […]
