Good Morning Starshine – for the Littles and More

In the indigo glow before the Dawn, dievca watched the stars twinkle over the NYC skyline. she had just finished going into a deep read of an NYT Article:

How ‘Sesame Street’ Started a Musical Revolution.

As a youngster who recently reached her 50’s dievca was part of the initial target audience for the show. she has fond memories of the classics: Rubber Ducky, 5 People in My Family, etc.  Apparently, people who worked on the show or were guest stars had/have some impressive resumes, which at 3 years old – one does not care about….  The catchy tune which teaches you to count? That’s an important piece.

If you are a ‘Little’, in the demographic of dievca or a parent the article above may bring you Joy to read — just give yourself some time to click through all the musical links for a fine ride.


Flying Away

After a lovely moment with Master, dievca is looking for motivational music for the trip. More than half this trip is work – she needs a giddy-up push.  But, there is a little jaunt to Portugal on the itinerary. That’s dievca’s moment to “Fly Away”.

Also, dievca needs to apologize – she’s really been negligent about connecting with comments, people and blogs. Yes, busy is a baloney excuse, she’s really hoping to take a little time each morning to reconnect on the blog. she misses all of you. XO


no iPhone…

dievca doesn’t have an iPhone, she runs android.
she doesn’t watch TV ….
Obviously, she is disconnected.
Right?

dievca was ‘on it‘ when the Soffi Tukker “Batshit Crazy” song 1st came out because a close friend uses that term quite a lot, so the song caught her ear. Note: That friend has used the adjective to describe dievca on occasion. Apparently, Apple used the clean version for an advert in 2018.

Now the Sofi Tukker song, ‘Best Friend’ is on dievca’s radar late and she loves it. Not from the iPhone X commercial or the Grammy Awards, but from this video:

Look how adorable!

In a strange way, the lyrics apply to Master and dievca.

You ALL are more hip than Master and dievca, got any songs or artists you want to share with them?


The evenings are longer…

…and the mornings offer the moist heat of Summertime dew.
Schools are almost out for the year.

dievca flashes back to childhood memories~
This song came out before dievca was born.

It’s older than her brother’s music and younger than her Parent’s choices.
Yet, the song still managed to ingrain itself into dievca’s Summer Memories.
Do you remember?
1966

A new exhibition exploring the work of British fashion designer Mary Quant will open at the V&A in April 2019, including photographs from the archive of Terence Donovan. With over 200 garments…


Springtime in the Central Park

The daffodils have blossomed, trees are showing leaves — the temperature is predicted to be around 70 F (21 C), Master and dievca are planning on a picnic!

Time to pull out that Hunter x Target backpack!

dievca keeps singing:


Jumpstart your Saturday: James Brown

dievca’s using James Brown to get her going this morning.
Maybe you need some “get on up”, too.
XO

The speedier version!


Something Stupid, maybe not

A friend sent this video to dievca:

It was in response to an awkward moment Master and dievca were having. The moment has passed. Master and dievca have grown – but the song brings her back to how some relationships start balancing on a pinhead.

Then something happens (or a number of somethings) and the relationship shifts to being hammered into the bedrock.

It’s interesting when you figure out that someone will be connected to you for the rest of your Life.
