Bloom, Baby, Bloom: A Soliloquy & A Song

With all the social activities of life toned down and traveling taken off the docket, it’s been a rather quiet year here in 2020. And it has pointed up to me something rather startling, something I’m not sure I knew about myself until this year. I haven’t learned how to be happy.

Maybe Let Go - An Original Song

Maybe Let Go – An Original Song

Hello, dear readers, I can’t believe it’s December! We’ve already broken out the 24-year-old artificial tree, tuned in to Christmas songs on the radio, and queued up the Hallmark movies.

Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree - A Cummins Family Arrangement

Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree

Howdy, Folks, I talked last week about the “Christmas Showcase” we got to have at our house. This week, I’m posting another song from it! Anna did a fantastic job learning the lyrics and melody for “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree.” She’s a natural! It was super cool getting to perform our song and see how the practice paid off. I’d love for you to take a listen! Merry Christmas!
