Inspiration and Stuff

Dear Mom,

My posts may slow up as I’m going to school this semester. Learning web production, html and all that techy stuff and then with any luck at all, I’ll be creating a new look with my personal website: lynnobermoeller.com.  The “Dear Mom” may go bye-bye, although you’ll always be there in heart.

What I want to share with you has to do with another one of your creative grandchildren, Victoria. You know she’s a professor of music at Macalester College in St. Paul, MN, however, recently she has decided to share her own music with the universe. She started a blog where she will post a new song each week. The first song, “Hold On” brought me to tears—I cried like a baby. How could one not be moved by this piece? Go to Cool Awesome Whatever and listen for yourself. You won’t be disappointed. Scroll down to the first post - Welcome to my blog.

She already has a second song, "Why" posted. Thanks for sharing--it is more than cool awesome.

Last Saturday, I attended St. Louis Writers Guild’s (SLWG) monthly workshop, featuring Catherine Rankovic on essay writing. (You can check out more at her website BookEval.)  Talk about another cool awesome.... Because I journal daily—free writing—it wasn’t difficult for me to use Catherine’s approach in free writing an essay. I’ve decided rather than ramble and whine like I normally do in my journal, I’d step it up a few notches and write an essay every day. Thanks Catherine.

Beautiful people doing beautiful things, how's that for inspiration?
