Seeing as I am not going to be available next Monday, I am doing Music Monday for next week. Kate Nash has to be a trailblazer singer. Although she is not as well known in America, she is quite famous in Britain. Favorite songs of her for me are “Foundations” and “Birds”. To me, Kate Nash is a singer who deserves praise for being able to have songs that are by far inspiring.

Music Monday: Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson is one of the most influential singers today. With strong words about life experiences and keeping a positive body image, Kelly keeps her head high. Found on American Idol she is a true story of confidence with keeping your dreams alive. Kelly Clarkson is one voice that will never fade.

This photo may seem a little early since it is of a carved pumpkin. However, Fall is my favorite season that is coming up. I can’t wait for Fall  2017 and with a few Facebook reminders of the coming arrival I couldn’t think of a better picture to pick on this summer’s day. This photo was taken at Roger Williams Pumpkin Spooktacular last year. Seeing as this was one of my favorite pumpkins at the event, I chose it for today. Happy Friday all!

Theater Thursday: Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf

Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf.jpg

One of the most bizarre plays, to me, is Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf by Edward Albee. A dinner party hosted by middle aged couple George and Martha takes an interesting turn with “fun and games”. Their guests Nick and Honey are taken off guard by some of the outbursts the two have. However, as the night goes on each other reveals secrets to one another that threatens the breakdown of each of their marriages. Nick and Honey, along with George and Martha, end up in a struggle between fact and fiction as no one can tell who is telling the truth until the very end.
