So- I just had a club sandwich for lunch- woohoo-thrilling right? I don't know, I am in a rambling mood, which means I should probably get a pen and paper out, for the ideas are somewhat flowing.
So I took my acoustic out last night and boom-string popped-stupid me cannot find any strings in the house. Who doesn't have back-up strings? I do somewhere, but where? I have been in this HAIR (the Musical) playing mood. Used to play and sing it all the time, long, long ago. My mom had the album and she saw it on Broadway with the originals- James Rado & Gerome Ragni. Why HAIR? I have no clue! My mom has really influenced me musically in a lot of ways and I believe that is why I have such musical diversity in my tastes. I have also developed artistic diversity from her as well. Although we have different tastes, mine have changed over the years, when I would go through different phases, but I always come back to my favorites: Kandinsky, Klee, Miro, etc. Do we see a pattern here? Does this mean my mind is hectic? messy? out of order? I don't think so. Or does this explain my panic disorder? Who the hell knows. Psychology is such a fascinating subject- I love to analyze things-maybe too much. Hmmmmm.
So as I said- my rambling mood has caused me to ramble to create a mess of a blog in one paragraph--see? maybe the artists do say something about me. Today's blog makes absolutely no sense.

I Am Drawing a Blank

Ever since I changed my blog, My mind has not been able to come up with anything to blog about. Nothing really new happening in my life and it's been too hot and humid to work out in the yard.
I have been going through some old pictures which bring back a lot of memories, and my poor facebook friends are being tagged without warning.
On another note, as you may know, my mom is a very talented musician. She can play any instrument by ear, which I guess is where I get it from, because I don't read music either. I taught myself guitar chords and went from there. Anyway, getting back to the story, my mom wrote a lot of songs, mainly Boleros when she was young. She has old recordings of them, but now her friends are actually performing them.
A couple of years ago, my mom asked if I wanted to perform one of her songs at an event, which I did want to but declined because it had been so long since I had performed in front of a crowd that it gave me a panic attack just thinking about it.
Anyway, I have finally decided to record her songs at our friend's recording studio, something that means a lot to me and to my mom. My mom told me last night that our friend can get the whole band together but not for a few weeks now, which works for me-more time to practice. I would love to do a duet with my mom as we have always done my whole life, harmonizing to each others tunes.
I too have written many songs, but that was a long time ago and I have no desire to record them professionally. I have old recordings too, but I can just re-record here at home-John's got me hooked up.
Look for me on the Billboard charts-NOT :-)
Meanwhile, our friend will be performing this weekend at a gallery opening, of course I have drawn a blank on the name of the gallery(Fibro Fog)

I've changed my blog

I have decided to change directions with my blog. Instead of concentrating solely on Fibromyalgia which seems to bring me down, to a more up-beat positive place. Don't get me wrong, I may still vent frustrations and complain about FM, but I feel like I need to be thankful for everything I have and spread positivity and make this a place where anyone can share.
I hope to cover a lot of different topics, ideas, etc., anything I think is worth sharing with my wonderful friends.
