Day Eleven. Cheesy and soulful.

Grace in...oh, you know.

1. Brie cheese.

2. And Camembert, too.

3. And focaccia.

4. Soul sides. Because I go to the site and scroll around and inevitably yelp and yip with excitement. I hadn’t been in a while, I admit, and today I was reading back a few posts and YIP! “I LOVE DAVID RUFFIN!” Yeah, it’s like that. Really great artists you may have totally forgotten about. Old soul music is just like home to me. I can’t explain it any other way.*

5. Being told that the EVP where I work (who is a published novelist, and completely anal about language) has been praising my writing talents hither and yon. Wow.

* Ooh! Dionne Warwick! Now there’s an O.D. (Original Diva) for ya. And look at her picture. She looked FABulous.

Soul Sides. Nice.

I miss old R&B and Motown. Gotta soft spot for it. Miss it (George Clinton) but like the new stuff, too (John Legend)

Not only grew up on Motown, grew up IN Motown. Gotta soft spot for it.

And, of course, cheese is ALWAYS good, too.

Ah, I didn't realize you were from the Motor City originally! Cool. And yeah, I'm back to John Legend's "Let's Get Lifted" CD - in rotation in the car stereo. I still love it.
