One of my favorite local bloggers, Katherine from Chambana Fanna Fo Fanna has started a News-Gazette blog and recently wrote a post on Mother’s Day and local blogs by mothers. In it she linked to several of us and described me as ‘sarcastic and music obsessed.’
Sarcastic and music obsessed. I am delighted. Katherine, I love you!
You know sometimes you’re in the midst of the blur of the present and you begin to feel like you’ve lost some of what makes you you….. I think if I had to describe myself right now I’d say ‘aging and stressed out’ or ‘frazzled but caring’ or even ‘overweight and on antidepressants.’ Instead she saw ‘sarcastic and music obsessed.’ It made me feel more like me. I asked Ernie, "am I sarcastic?" and he just rolled his eyes. Huh. Music obsessed….I guess I am….it feels natural to me. ME.
Sarcastic and music obsessed. You know….nowhere in that description does it say aging parents, kids, cancer, alzheimer’s.
Thank you SO much Katherine.
