Reed Lake Coyotes

If you look closely, there are coyote decoys on the shore…


I stopped by the office yesterday and when I came out (on my way for a walk) there were small balls of ice falling from the sky. I felt like Henny Penny. I promise I am finished with metaphors and misery about the cold, but ice balls?


Anyway, I was walking around the lake and suddenly the sun came out and the temperature rose by twenty degrees and I was listening to some great music and I felt like a million bucks. Instantly. Like someone flipped a switch. It made me think about the restorative benefits of fresh air and exercise and music in recovery. I challenge anyone to feel lousy when listening to Pitbull doing “Fireball”. That guy just seems like he’s having a great time, all the time. I suppose it helps to be constantly surrounded by beautiful women, shaking their booties in leotards.


It’s Monday morning and I still feel the way I felt going around the lake: on the top of my game, everything working right, great thoughts about what I am going to accomplish this week. So I’d like to make a suggestion. On the way to the office, or while you work out, or as you are getting your Vogue look together in the bathroom mirror, turn off the educational podcast or the book on tape and turn up the dance tunes…


Today I’m not drinking because I’m feeling like a FIREBALL…


How come you’re not drinking?

    I am a very firm believer that if everyone took a moment to sing a song and dance a step or two, the world would instantly be better. And I mean it: instantly.

    i'm searching Pitbull
    Can’t agree more … When I was 15 going on 16 I had been carted off to boarding school against my will, forget about ‘constant craving’ how about constant caning, I was miserable and on any sought of mid term break, religious getaway, whatever, the moment I arrived home I would rush to the record player throw on the Supremes classic hit ‘You just can’t wait’ immediately broke into dance to shake off my misery all in this shroud of overwhelming happiness, music cures. Phil Collins agreed with his cover. ‘Happy’ another top list tune sings it in a word.
    Off subject on another note ‘silence is golden’ in my maturity as much as I love a great vibe I like to be able to control when, how and by how much.
    O.K just a telly bitch, but a tech concept to make T.V/DVD viewing more pleasurable. We often have the ability to programme the language we would like to view a DVD or add captions but wouldn’t ones experience viewing or should I say listening to home entertainment be far more palatable if we extended that choice to mute background film scores and my real pet peeve, canned laughter on sit coms. Are we really all such dummies we have to be queued to chuckle, I find it pathetic as much as I like Seinfeld and the like, let’s just have the choice to cut audience laughter out and as for those BIG movie scores (John Williams). I could honestly do without them, I find them so intrusive to dialogue which is critical and don’t get me started on sound effects, so to have those great options relatively easily at hand to mute would greatly enhance the whole entertainment experience.

      If you ruled the world… Laughing at the “telly bitch” and agree whole-heartedly about the options to mute laugh tracks and BIG SCORES. As always, you make me giggle….

    I was introduced to Ray Charles IN boarding school. (Lenox School, 1959-61). I can’t quite say it made it all worth it, but it was a pretty special discovery.
