I just found out (and it’s nice to know) that if I type “www.sordpress.com” into my browser it still brings me to WordPress. So often the computer, much to my frustration, does what I tell it to do and not what I want it to do. It’s nice to know that sometimes this is not the case and my computer can read my mind, just like I always knew it could.

I admit, dear friends, that I have been remiss with this blog. Mostly because I don’t think anybody is reading it. However, I have discussed it with several people and I hope they are looking for it now. Hi! This doesn’t mean I’m promising to be more diligent. I have lots of experiences in my life that I think “Oh! I can blog about this.” and then I just don’t.  I write them down and everything, but I never get them up here. I’m sure you’re sad about it…

Right now, I am very busy with the start up of the Voces Novae 2008-2009 season. Our first concert is all new music composed by Harry Pickens using the poetry of Wendell Berry. It is beautiful stuff and if you think you have something better to do at 3:00 on November 23 than to be at Christ Church Cathedral in Louisville, KY hearing this world-premiere music, then you are quite incorrect. Go here for tickets. If it says tickets are not yet available, check back in a couple weeks. I promise it will be worth it! We are also working on a new CD of music written for us by Harry. It will be available at that concert. It’s all very exciting!

For some reason the last several days I have been angry and sad. I am so tired of my routine I want to scream! Unfortunately, my routine doesn’t include any housework so my filthy house makes me want to scream, too. I wish my routine included more exercise, because I went to the gym this afternoon and worked hard there for about an hour and I’m not feeling so crummy this evening. My routine does include a lot of blaming others and myself and making a lot of excuses why I can’t get to the gym or wash any dishes or mop any floors or do anything useful with my time.

Tomorrow is Friday. Hooray! And Labor Day is next weekend! Three-day Hooray! I may ask off on the Friday prior so I can have a 5-day hooray (since I get Thursdays off anyway – and now you say “Why are you complaining about your bloody routine! You have a 4-day work week!” and I reply “Pooh to you! I’ll complain if I want!”

Share your love and shine your light!



  1. Be sad! Complain! It’s a woman’s right! Just get your head out of your tush every once in a while and thank God for this crazy world we live in.

    Thanks for letting me know you have a blog. I’ll check it out every now and then. -anna

  3. The gym, or any excercise, is a cure all I find. I wish I too could do more cleaning and excerciseing. Right now walking around the block takes me 45 mins! Who knew 5lbs of baby actually = 30lbs of extra body mass! Oh well many people I suppose anyway hnag in there girl. Be gentle with yourself and praise your accomplishments rather then spotlighting the challenging areas. You are loved!
