Opera! In Springville?

Music, Western New York

Opera! In Springville? Apparently after coming back from seeing a WORLD CLASS opera performance at the Springville Center for the Arts, HWMMS and I are compelled to sing everything we normally would speak to each other. I just realized my Husband has a damn fine singing voice…🎶 Brava to all involved—a job well done on […]

Music, Personal, Writing

(Gut punch.) I was messaging with a friend from college this evening and she mentioned the passion her son has for soccer—and how it rivaled her passion for physics. Passion. Hmmm. It got me thinking a little while later on the drive home. Passion. Geez? What on earth would I consider my passion? Blogging? Writing? […]

Morning Person?

A Little Fall of Rain

Music, Weber Wonderland

Do YOU like getting caught in the rain? The rain started to fall as I was driving to work after taking this photo of the sky over Newton Pond at Weber Wonderland. I found it funny that the “Piña Colada” song came on the radio when I was driving and right as the line “getting […]

9 Concerts and a Lie


Ok, I’ll bite. 9 Concerts and a Lie eh? Sometimes these silly things come along on Facebook and they make me want to play. So I did. ? I had to put them in alphabetical order, because I’m odd like that. This little exercise made me wish I actually kept track of all the concerts […]

We Belong


Lyrics: We Belong. The other day I’m in the truck driving to meet up with mom at her doctor appointment. I’m running late, the skies have opened up with rain and I’m blasting the radio trying to not think about anything and everything and singing along at the top of my lungs. The song is […]

He is Lord!

Family, Holidays, Music

He is Lord! Happy Easter! I’m sitting here sniffing the amazing hyacinths I picked from the garden and HWMMS said “now that is the smell of Easter.” (I agree.) And I can’t get the hymn from Church “He Is Lord” out of my head. (Obvious reasons.) Aside: I have NO idea how to spell hyacinth, […]

Again? Really?

Family, Mind and Spirit, Music, Personal

Yep. AGAIN. REALLY. Now I’m starting to think maybe it’s not really as much of a coincidence as I thought the first time—-MAYBE the radio station plays this song all the time every day and I just don’t know because I rarely listen to the radio. Although if this is true, the radio station should […]

Daredevil Theme Song = Anxiety?

Mind and Spirit, Music, TV

Back in December WHENMYANXIETYLEVELWASTHROUGHTHEROOF i would work 12+ hour days in the office and HWMMS would join me there after dinner so he could stream “free” WIFI to watch Netflix while I worked. Oh and spend time with me. And help lick envelopes. But mostly to stream WIFI because we had data caps at Weber […]

Depression, Family, Mind and Spirit, Music, Personal, Synchronicities

If there’s one lesson I’ve learned this year during my MeMyselfI journey, it’s been to LISTEN and GO WITH THE FLOW. Yesterday, I visited my mom at the nursing home. I wasn’t there for more than a few minutes before I felt physically sick. Headache return, wanting to vomit. I’m just a pile of a […]

Mind and Spirit, Music, Personal

“Flying away on a wing and a prayer…” -Greatest American Hero Theme Song This song is a constant earworm. I hear it randomly ALL THE TIME. For me, this isn’t a bad thing, I like the song. I don’t remember watching the show as a little kid but I’m pretty certain I did. Still, there’s […]

Music, Personal

Creativity? I woke up with this earworm in my head. Ah, Hedwig. Hedwig and the Angry Inch starring Neil Patrick Harris was my first broadway musical. And HWMMS first Broadway musical. It was outstanding. I go through phases where I NEED TO HEAR HEDWIG RIGHT NOW and that usually involves time in the pool. And […]

George Michael

Mind and Spirit, Music

George Michael. I think I’ve been hanging out with my Spiritualist friends too much this year… After Alan Thicke died, I saw friends on social media say “enough 2016!” And all I could think was someone else was going to pass before the end of the year. There are still many days to go and […]

Itzhak Perlman was the guest artist at my very first Opening Night Gala I organized for the orchestra back in 2008. Where does the time go?

Handel’s Messiah

Handel’s Messiah at Our Lady of Victory I worked at the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra for five years and never made it to this concert. This year, I finally did. It was lovely. The company, not too shabby either. 🙂 Let the season begin! Save

Ministry in Concert

HWMMS, Music, Travel

Ministry in Concert. One would think that by the age of 40 new adventures like seeing the band Ministry in concert when you don’t even have a clue what one Ministry song sounds like…would NOT be a good time. Ah, the things you do for your husband. I did send HWMMS off to Philly to […]

The Luckiest

HWMMS, Music

  The Luckiest. Oh how I love this song. I was truly lucky that the only time I’ve seen Ben Folds live happened to be when I was working for the BPO and he did a concert with us at Kleinhans. The day of the show during practice, he performed this song…with full orchestra…but he […]

Secret Husband Behavior

HWMMS, Music

Secret Husband Behavior. Some things cannot be unseen or unheard. We just finished watching the movie Serenity. Shiny! And then something strange happened… The recent YouTube history of HWMMS flashed before my eyes on the large projector screen. And suddenly I’m watching a stand-up bit by Joe Rogan, which I know he watches. But then, […]
