With so much bad news in the ether these days, I’ve been thinking about this a great deal. I was recently reading and listening to some classical music while drinking some chamomile tea, and I felt so very content. I believe we need more of that.

        I am torn about remakes.
        No one asked for this,” I often feel like saying. “Why can’t Hollywood be more creative?”
          But I’m not mad at the debut of a series based on the hit 1992 电影 关于 a World War II-era pro women’s baseball team, because right now celebrating women feels pretty darn good.
          A League of Their Ownis streaming now on Amazon Prime.

          心爱, haunted and hunted.
          That’s the impression I’ve always had of the late Princess Diana, and the more I learn about her life, the more that is reinforced.

          ‘Cheat Codesby Danger Mouse and Black Thought
          When Danger Mouse was a teen growing up in Atlanta, he was a huge fan of the rap group The Roots.
          I remember paying someone to steal (The Roots’ 1995 专辑) ‘Do You Want More?!!!??!’ from Turtle’s Records And Tapes,” he told NME. “It was one of those albums that most people in my high school didn’t really know about, so I had even more of a connection with it because it was ‘my thing.'
          So imagine his excitement upon releasingCheat Codes,” an eagerly awaited collaboration with the group’s longtime MC and rapper, Black Thought.
          ‘Cheat Codesis the most introspective I’ve been in a long time,” Black Thought said of the album in the same NME interview. “It’s some of my most honest writing.

          一件事要谈

          (从左边开始) Amy Grant and Vince Gill perform at the Ryman Auditorium on December 13, 2021, 在纳什维尔, 田纳西州.

          I have been watching a tribute to singer-songwriter Amy Grant by her husband, Vince Gill, over and over.
          Grant was injured in a bicycle accident in late July, and during a recent concert Gill had their daughter Corrina performWhen My Amy Prays,” a song he wrote for Grant years ago.
          It is one of the most powerful examples of vulnerable songwriting I’ve ever heard from Gill, as he expresses that he didn’t always have the same type of relationship with God that his wife does.
          I remember the controversy decades ago when the couple first got togetherGrant is one of the most successful Christian artists ever and there were some fans who were not happy about her divorce from her first husband, songwriter Gary Chapman.
          Listening to the lyrics of Gill’s tune reminded me that we all have our own path, and that no one is perfect. Great lesson.

          喝点东西

          She was always the one that we wanted.
          The death of Olivia Newton-John this week at the age of 73 had me running to watch “润滑脂” and listen to Physical.
            She also was quite the survivor, having battled cancer multiple times. By sharing her breast cancer journey over the past 30 年份, she helped to educate the public, even as she fought to live.
            Her race is run now. May she rest well.
