a lyric and a song part 2
Recorded on 8/27/20. This is the 2nd part of a two part video. I share the acapella song We Could’ve Been Good. I was going to go with another one but came across this one first (hence the speeded up part while I was looking 😉 The question of the night was “If you could gift everyone with one skill, what would it be?” Stick around for the end to hear Transe & Hanna’s response.Continue reading “a lyric and a song part 2”
an intimate glitch
Ooooooh so there was a glitch in my scheme so it seemed I thought because of his Nordic good looks he would respond kindly because I took the time to cook and baked these krumkake cookies for him hours, days and months of familiar, intimate conversation I finally had the courage to show my appreciation with more than a hope we could move beyond just friends Alas, he looked at me aghast I don't know what to sayContinue reading “an intimate glitch”
I love my library card
Oh ’twas a sad day when I learned that the overdrive phone app would soon be going away. It was/is my favorite app. I had even turned some friends on to it along with the benefits of having our local library card.
Like not only can you read books you also have access to some great movies and documentaries through Kanopy. It also gives you access to a number of learning portals. I have an account with linkedin learning aka Lynda.
But of the above, Overdrive was the benefit I used the most. I recently downloaded Libby and am still trying to get used to it. Shouldn’t be hard as they are owned by the same company, right. However, I see that I won’t have access to my previous download history. I enjoyed some of those books immensely.Continue reading “I love my library card”

Have to take a moment, let my eyes adjust and my pupils dilate, Oh! the musty scent of the damp stones, couldn't help but crinkle my nose I was lost, with no plan, caught traipsing through tunnels without a map I need to focus, mentally retrace my steps, try anyway, and answer those questions How did I get lost here? It was a riddle like life, right? I was stranded, abandoned making my way through this maze with no exit in sight.Continue reading “lost”
one simple sentenceContinue reading “15 minutes”
using simple words
we're all screaming
we just wanna be heard
for the front of the line
for our time
it's 15 minutes
in the spotlight
make the most of the moment
make it worth your fight
we only get 15 minutes
to be remembered
don't let your legacy
burn in the embers
the cryptic rendezvous
I did not want my mind to go there
I did my best not to let it wander
into the desolation of my imagination
so as a distraction
I looked up the words of the day
they so perfectly detailed the situation
and the lines and rhymes started
to flood my mind
a narrative began to form
scribbles in excitement
a poem was about to be born.
Their eyes met in cryptic exchangeContinue reading “the cryptic rendezvous”
heated on his part,
annoyed she was way too early
for their rendezvous.
he still had work to do.
She smiled back oblivious
but she knew and took this time
to reclaim her space
make others aware of her face
why she was there
and who she was there for.
He questioned his choice on this rapprochement
maybe he had re-established this relationship too soon.
Was this going to be a regular scene…
