Today’s my day. It’s been an extraordinary day in so many of the last 11 years. 1999 was my 50th (and I partied like it was 1999!), it’s been 10 years since my dad died on that day, and of course the world was forever changed in 2001. I prayed for a peaceful day in 2002 and was graced when my future husband flew from Miami to Los Angeles to surprise me with a plane towing an exquisite ribbon in the sky and his presence. Last year I officially released the first single from my very first CD on 9/9/09 and sang the song on a fabulous cruise ship on my 60th. So many of the days have been truly momentous if not auspicious.

My suit has served me well throughout the years and for all that it has sustained, I’m grateful. I thank God, Mom & Dad, Rock & Roll, and a healthy attitude. I know my dad expected me to celebrate life on the 11th, his & mine, when he chose that day to pass. Loss is never easy but I will continue to honor him and all who have been born & died on this day. And I will celebrate life.

I dunno. Bold, yes. Too much, too little, maybe. Here’s the video we did last week. I’m trying to lip-sync to my new recording of I Thank You at the same time. I think the skating’s a little more successful. Let me know what you think!

Brent Harvey, my fabulous music biz friend suggested the bikini today after he saw the video. He thought it was “awesome” and said other lovely things, and after we discussed my career a bit, he said you have to be BOLD in promoting yourself, hence the bikini. I was of course very flattered, but I’m sixty freakin’ years old and although a bikini is still pretty comfortable, a video?! But I’m going to be bolder, more omnipresent, more persistent because I’m 60 freakin’ years old and this is my time! Okay, we’ll see. Brent, once again I Thank You.

I love my cookies.  I love to share really good things.  No, that’s not a euphemism for body parts, although “naked” has already splayed its lovely self in 2 posts, so apparently it’s begging for a category.  But I digress, so back to cookies.  I admit to being a quasi-health & fitness freak, but most if not all things in moderation… please.  So I gotta have my cookies and I do.  Everyday… maybe 2 little ones.  So I’m checking out at Fresh Market earlier this week and mounted on large display were these boxes of cookies.  Not only were they on sale, there was a coupon on the box!  After careful scrutiny, I took a chance.

“BEAR NAKED 100% Pure & Natural soft-baked granola cookies Fruit & Nut

raisins + walnuts+ cranberries + almonds”

I don’t even like raisins & cranberries and I don’t really know that side of the cookie market, but I’m here to testify that these “healthy” cookies are THE BEST.

My First…

It’s my first sentence of my first blog and already I’m feeling naked.  I’m mostly a voyeur on Facebook and now I’m supposed to REVEAL.  Yikes.  What am I really doing here?

Well, it’s time to use this marvel of a thing to promote my CD, the one that was supposed to be finished last September on the big birthday.  We’re shooting for this b’day but I dunno… Is there something slower than a snail’s pace?  I’ve accepted that it’s in God’s time.  I’ve accepted.  I’ve accepted.  I really have.

I haven’t kept a diary in a few decades but this feels like one.  My best friend suggested I use a blog to describe the process of making the CD so I’ll do that too, maybe in snail detail.  Today is 7/11.  Is that significant?  My b’day is 9/11.  That is very.

Well, apparently I am comfortable rambling in almost full public view.
