I Like The Dark – January 2, 2023

I like when the dark comes on and says, “Slow down. You just put in a full day and worked your butt off, so put up your feet and have a cocktail or three. Press the Pause Button for God’s sake. Light a candle and contemplate another day’s adventure. Hush.”

    Tulis, once more a unique essay! Love this – and I don’t like the dark unless I’m in a “quiet room” at a spa – but I appreciate your POV

    I’m all for that extra week of darkness between Christmas and New Year. I think it’s when my own shoots grow, getting ready for the year ahead.

My father was usually wrong, and I was right.

She started singing in 1931 and has never stopped in spite of being sidelined more than once. Marilyn Maye has lived through more crap than most of us will ever see. Talk about opportunities for having the blues. And yet she chooses the crow’s nest as her permanent home.
