"I have spent my days stringing and unstringing my instrument while the song I came to sing remains unsung." Rabindranath Tagore
I have a friend who always reminds the folks in our writers' group that we mustn't die with our music inside. I need to take what she says to heart. My writer friend A. has lost her battle with cancer and to be honest it shocked me. A. was revved up about getting back to writing and taking control of her career. I hadn't seen her in forever but she came to a meeting in January and was welcomed with open arms. I was so happy to see her. Three weeks later, she was dead. Surely with some music inside. I can't control how much time I have on the planet, but I can do my best to sing my song while I have the chance.

No lie, I’m super pumped about seeing Fifty Shades Freed. The first time I saw the commercial, my heart sped up and I felt such elation. How could I forget that it was Christian Grey time? Last year I couldn’t wait for my honey to get in the mood to see pic number two, so I went by myself. This time I’ve already declared that Saturday was dedicated to Fifty. I’ve already prepped her by renting Fifty Shades Darker last week (which I loved seeing for the second time). I’ll be a little sad once there are no more movies to experience, but like any good masochist, I’ll enjoy the sweet pain .

I'll be honest, I didn't know what I wanted to write about in this blog post. Since last we met, a lot has happened. I lost a friend to breast cancer (too, too many people are dying from this disease), I missed out on a concert I'd been planning to see for 3 years (one day I'll see you Janet), I edged ever closer to my fifties (whatever happened to 30 being old ? :)), and I moved into a motel (only temporarily, thank God). Of course, of all of these, it is the loss of my friend that has affected me the most. So in remembrance of her, and to remind all of us that life is short and to enjoy it to the fullest, here is some Lee Ann.

Every September I go into the Irish Hills of Michigan with my writer friends and we brainstorm new stories and write. And then we write and brainstorm more stories. It is 2 glorious days of being with my people and a better inspiration, I could not ask for. I hope your friends are as great as mine! Oh and as a teaser, I think I might be writing about an old hero whose story I've been kicking around for years. He's one to love for many many reasons, and though he has no name yet, he's known as Humpman at brainstorming. I'll let you speculate why :)
