Day 1581: What’s Happening

No matter what’s happening, I often wonder what’s happening, because there’s usually so much happening at once.

What’s happening with all these pictures?

What’s happening now is “What’s the Buzz Tell Me What’s Happening” from Jesus Christ, Superstar.

What’s happening?  I hope you let us know what’s happening in a comment, below.

With gratitude for all who helped me create this happening post and — of course! — for you, here’s the last photo I happened to take yesterday.

Day 1506: Hearts

Because today is Valentine’s Day, you’re likely to see hearts all around you.

Because I blog about my heart and others’ hearts, you’re likely to see hearts here on any day.

Here’s the first photo I took yesterday, at cardiac rehab.

I told Carla (who had drawn that heart with heart), “Carla!  My heart doesn’t look like that!”  She agreed, heartily.

Do you see hearts in my other photos from yesterday?

Here‘s a song with heart (which my heart found on Youtube by searching on “heart kalimba“)

Thanks — from the bottom of my unusual heart — to Ruth Akello, Béla Fleck, Carla, Michael, Oscar, Amber,  and everyone else I love who helped me create this heart-filled post and to  you — of course! — for bringing your heart here, today.

Day 1224: Moody

While I do have my moods of joy, sadness, fear, anger, and shame, I don’t think I’m particularly moody.  However, I may be moody when I return to work tomorrow and the weather finally turns beautiful and sunny, which will probably improve other people’s moods.

Yesterday, during a moody and gray day, I was in the mood to see a movie.  So I drove to Waltham, Massachusetts, USA, which has this moody street:

As I walked through moodily quiet Waltham towards the movie theater, I took these moody photos:

When I saw that sign for the Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation,  I got into a reminiscing mood, remembering a few years ago when  my son Aaron and my boyfriend Michael were at that museum, enjoying all the interesting moods of a Steampunk festival.

If you’re in the mood for a definition of Steampunk, here’s a short one:

Steampunk is a subgenre of science fiction or science fantasy that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery.

At that point, I looked up and saw the many moods of these people:

I exclaimed, in an excited mood, “Is today the day???”  And they said, “It is!”  Then I saw more and more people who were in the mood to have their pictures taken:

After I saw that sign that said, “Fear change?  Put it in the Tip Jar!” I was in the mood to tell those people, “Keep a dollar, even though I do NOT fear change.”

I hope you’re in the mood for more pictures from yesterday’s Steampunk Festival in Waltham.

I’m in the mood to tell you that I overheard that guy  ask if his moodily steampunk puppet could sit in that amazing black car (which sometimes gave off moody, billowing clouds of steam).

Still in the mood for more steampunk photos?

By then, I was in the mood to see the moody movie I came to Moody Street in Waltham to see.

Are you in the mood to guess which movie it was?

I took all of those moody photos before the movie actually began.

Seeing Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter, and Antonio Sanchez play in person, over the years, have been some of the highlights of my long and moody life.

I’m now in the mood  to write that

If you’re in the mood to check out some Miles Davis tunes on Youtube, you can find that live  performance  of “All Blues” and many more .

How moody are you,  after reading this moody post?

Moody thanks to all who helped me create all the moods of this post and to you — of course! — no matter what your moods are, here and now.

Day 1217: It’s May!

May I share this song about May, from the musical Camelot?

May I also share that I used to sing and dance to the music of  Camelot alone in my basement during the early 1960s and then got to do that on stage in the 1970s?

IMG_1386

May I point out that I’m to the right of the Maypole and the sheepdog?

May I share LOTS of photos from yesterday’s Sheep Shearing Festival?

May I apologize for how long it took to load and/or look at all those photos?

May I say how much fun I always have at the Sheep Shearing Festival? May I also say that missing it last year (because of cardiac-related surgery) and the year before (because of pneumonia) made me appreciate it, even more?

May I show you two more photos, taken on this 1st day of May?

 

May I sheepishly ask you to leave a comment?

Many May thanks to all who helped me create this May Day post and to you — of course! — for visiting as you may.
