Welcome to Kathy’s Musings.
Dear Reader: It has been too long since I’ve posted. While there are lots of reasons for this, I’ve decided that even the best of these reasons doesn’t cut it. My slump is over. I’m finding the time. I need to pull myself up by my bootstraps, even if I don’t wear these or even own them. (Although I have worn waders when I volunteered at an aquarium and cleaned penguin poo, but that’s for another time.)
So, I hope to be more attentive to my Blog Site and readers. And if you are interested, I invite you to stroll through my other postings, which are about humor and life (and death) and family and current events and things that may seem ridiculously minor, like my ancient counter-top radio, but end up having significance in the greater scheme of things. It’s in the details, you know?
Not only is writing fun (usually), it helps me draw conclusions about the many facets of life so it’s easier to make sense of it all. My tag line “Everything is temporary!” references a line from one of my all-time favorite films, Moonstruck (1987) starring Cher and Nicolas Cage, Danny Aiello, Vincent Gardenia and Olympia Dukakis.
Here it is, from MOONSTRUCK: (Loretta, talking to her father, Cosmo, has just announced her engagement)
Cosmo Castorini: It looks stupid. It’s a pinky ring. It’s a man’s ring!
Loretta Castorini: It’s temporary!
Cosmo Castorini: Everything is temporary! That don’t excuse nothin’!
Everything is temporary, except these posts, which I guess are online forever. So read on, and then go watch the movie.
