    The Nearness of You

    It’s not the pale moon that excites me, that thrills and delights me. Oh no, it’s just the nearness of you.

    The Nearness of You, Hoagy Carmichael

    There is something magical about dancing with the one you love. The entire world melts away, and its just the two of you in the spotlight of your own making. Make your own magic with the one you love today.

    Wall Flower

    This moment will just be another story some day. Enjoy it. Because it’s happening.

    The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Stephen Chbosky

    There’s nothing wrong with being a Wall Flower. You don’t need to dance to enjoy an event. And you don’t need to be on the dance floor to feel the music. Enjoy the magical moments of life in whichever way you can.

    Royalty

    Help me to see everything you see in me.
    I’m royalty, all that You have created me to be.

    Royalty, Tasha Cobbs Leonard

    As we move into the last two months of 2020, this is your reminder that you are fearfully and wonderfully made. Regardless of how you feel, how hard this year has been, you are royalty.

    Fashion Essentials

    You can have anything you want in life if you dress for it.

    Edith Head

    For me, fashion is a state of mind. It’s an attitude, an air of confidence. Dressed to the nines, or in my sweats and slippers, I get what I want, when I want it. The clothes don’t make this girl. I make this shit look good.

    All or Nothing At All

    “All or nothing at all. Half a love, never appealed to me. If your heart, never could yield to me, then I’d rather, rather have nothing at all.

    Piano in the Dark

    “I know, I’m caught up in the middle. I cry just a little when I think of letting go.
    Oh no, gave up on the riddle, I cry just a little when he plays piano in the dark.”

    Piano In the Dark, Brenda Russell

    It’s easy to get caught up in the power of a song. Just the right stroke of a chord can bring a tear to anyone’s eye. As a vocalist, I find that there is something incredibly magical about the hands of musicians. And for me, the hands that mage the magic that is music whenever they caress the keys of a piano are the most beautiful of all.

    “This Is Not A Test… May God Be With You All.”

    The Purge Announcement

    2020 has given us more than our fair share of surprises. At times, it has definitely felt as though we were living in some dystopian society, set in the not so distant future, fearing for our lives, for the safety of our family and friends. But we have somehow managed to persevere. We’ve found joy in the most mundane things; discovered new hobbies and reconnected with family. But now, as the year draws to a close, we can only wonder what end 2020 has planned for us. Is there one final scare looming in the shadows? I guess we just have to wait and see.

    Tales From The Darkside

    “Man lives in the sunlit world of what he believes to be reality. But… there is, unseen by most, an underworld, a place that is just as real, but not as brightly lit… a Darkside.”

    Tales From The Darkside, The Series

    Sander recently told someone it’s Halloween with me all year long. And it is so true. I love all things horror! One of my favorite shows as a kid was Tales From The Darkside, a weekly anthology series, featuring 30 minute episodes. If you watched, you’ll remember that some of the best episodes were in the first season: Inside the Closet, A Case of the Stubborns (featuring a young Christian Slater), Anniversary Dinner and Snip, Snip! There are a few memorable ones from later seasons: Black Widows and Baker’s Dozen (Season 3), and No Strings (Season 4). If you’ve never had a chance to watch Tales from The Darkside, you should see if you can find some of the originals. I don’t think they are on any streaming services, but you might find some episodes on Youtube. Or you can watch Tales From The Darkside, The Movie. Also a very good watch!
