Gabriella Cimli - more please

 Did you ever accidentally stumble on to music that just does it for you? 

I have experienced that a few times.

Recently I found Gabriella Cilmi. She's not new but she is new to me. And that is the best way because then you have a backlog to make your way through instead of waiting on pins and needles for something new to drop.

This is my favorite song so far:

Outsidey Person, That's Me

 I recently read an unattributed quote comparing 'outdoorsy' to 'outsidey'.

I am definitely outsidey. 

There were three situations and I resonated with outsidey each time:

I would rather see mountains from a roadside viewpoint than from walking to the top and running into creatures which I love in theory but am not anxious to encounter in the wild.

I love to eat outside - on a restaurant patio - not on a blanket somewhere battling ants and such.

I can enjoy sitting next to a fire in the woods - on my camp / beach chair. When it's time to sleep, though, I want to leave the woods & be comfortable in bed at home or in a hotel.

See - outsidey - that's me.

staying in is the new going out - Happy 2024


Liz, Cooper & I stayed in. 

We ate popcorn & watched Dr Who.

The last episode we watched was a re-watch of Matt Smith taking Vincent Van Gogh into the future so he could see how loved he became.

I cried as usual. 

Otherwise it was a pleasant send off of 2023 & a good start for 2024!

Peace & fun to you & yours in the coming year!
