Paying Attention

My horoscope told me to pay particular attention to the messages in my dreams this week. And I have been. And I’ve been learning lots. But there’s this one dream I’m just not getting. I’ve no idea where it came from. I dreamed I went to see Simple […]

More Songs

After yesterday’s post about the song I got to thinking about other songs. I’ve had a lot of boyfriends, a surprising number really when you consider that I’ve been out of the game for so long that many of my friends (the writerly ones anyway) have never known […]
