Last Wednesday, I woke up to my alarm slightly confused and pensive about the dream I’d been awakened from. The scenario was not complete. It ended before I understood what it was about.

I was doing okay with my posting. I did try to post once a week, but I lapsed. I am bound and determined to get better at this.
I had to post today. It’s St. Patrick’s Day! Here in America, everyone can pretend to be Irish for the day, drink green beer (if that’s appealing to you…gag), and have an excuse to party.
For me, it’s a time to remember my trip to Ireland in 1994 and to honor my ancestry. I decided to post a St. Patrick’s Day playlist. There are hundreds of songs to choose from, but I’m only going to post a few of my favorites. I hope you might check some of these out.
My next post will be soon. The plan is to post another little teaser from my book, Wayward (There are a couple of songs in the playlist that get a mention in the book).
May you have a day filled with sunshine, and good friends!

I’m feeling the need to brag about my children. They are, in my opinion, fantastic!
Dillon graduated from University of Colorado Boulder in 2010 with a BA in English and a minor in Technology, Arts and Media. Cassidy is a senior at University of Wyoming and will graduate in May 2012 with a BFA in Theatre & Dance – Technical Theatre, concentration Lighting Design.
They are hard working kids. Dillon uses his talents working for Modern Distribution Management (MDM) creating graphics for their website with other duties as assigned. He also works for Starbuck’s (has since high school) where he has distinguished himself as a shift supervisor and brew master, as well as an artist. Cassidy works in the electrics shop for the theatre department and as a caregiver at ARK on the weekends. She balances that with classes, homework and shows.
Both are beautiful, unique individuals. They are growing to be responsible adults. I have much to be proud of with these two!
I love you both infinitely!
