This Is My Mind On Music

I have decided to take a break from my trilogy - Foolish Things We Tell Our Kids. I don't feel like being so heavy today.  Instead I am going with one of the writing prompts at NaBloPoMo.  Basically, they asked if I can blog and listen to music.  Oh and they want to know what song I have listened to today.  Color me boring, but I haven't listened to any music yet today.  I still have Honey Comb in my teeth and sleep in my eyes....more

Sorry I Missed You Tuesday

I had a glimpse of what life is going to be like starting next week. Yesterday evening I found myself on a four lane freeway feeling more trapped than free. Cars surrounded me and together we moved forward in an orderly fashion. In the car to my right sat a man who looked all too used to the hustle and bustle of a rush hour commute.
