I thought it’d be fun to write a blog about “time” sayings/phrases because there are so many wonderful ones and because as we all know, it’s one of our most precious commodities and I never seem to have enough, and then I realized at this moment I really don’t have time.

So please leave your favorite one in the comments section, and maybe we’ll all feel like we have more. ¬†ūüôā


She passed this morning. ¬†Marsha was the kindest, most generous, most fun neighbor and the feistiest & most loving friend a gal could hope for. ¬†She fought (and I mean FOUGHT) through years of pain, surgeries & physical & emotional challenges even though it clearly took its toll early on. ¬†As Abbe Hausner, our dear mutual friend who sailed as Marsha’s roomie on our wedding cruise, said to me in an email “I just want to remember my friend Marsha for her fiestiness, appetizers, parties, bbq’s. fishing trips and camping and the party Mamma! that she was…” ¬†And boy, did she know how to throw a party! ¬†She was the Martha Stewart of our ‘hood, and relished it & flourished in it. ¬†Her big wooden dining room table was a hearth, a feast & a refuge, and she held court.

My trio provided the music for her & Jimmy’s wedding, how many years ago? ¬†Was “Wind Beneath My Wings” her first dance? ¬†I think so. ¬†I don’t know and I don’t know how long we’ve been friends, 30 years? ¬†Too short. ¬†My dad’s birthday was yesterday. ¬†When I spoke with her sister Pam last night, I told her to tell Marsh that Robbie was waiting for her & ready to dance. ¬†And when Pam called this morning, I knew her dance card was already full.

The magic of the universe, “the secret,” angels, God’s miracles, visualization, meditation, manifestation, whatever you wanna call it, I believe!!!

My CD release yesterday meant it was time to focus on the next tasks at hand today, and one of those urgent tasks is finding a music director. So I posted, I conversed, made calls and got more info earlier today. And then tonight while taking Sadie out for a walk, I heard live music down the block. ¬†Now we’ve lived here for 3 months and I’ve NEVER heard live music, let alone soulful, rockin’ music. ¬†I was led & with Sadie in my arms, knocked on a garage door and said I was a neighbor, which of course sounded ominous to the band. ¬†But they opened the door and let me in and saw my excitement. ¬†It was a young group of musicians & singers preparing for their church performance this Sunday and it was beautiful! ¬†So I went home, got some of my CDs, came back and listened & watched. ¬†And then I saw a music director in action, showing the singers part, playing the parts, the chords and it was beautiful! Lol. ¬†I was in heaven. ¬†I told them about my day, we smiled & laughed & exchanged info. ¬†I told them I don’t know what it means or what might be but that it was beautiful!

I believe!

p.s. ¬†Yesterday was an incredible day… launched my new website¬†, released the CD, felt so much love, celebrated. ¬†Once again, I Thank You!
