Hey all, welcome to my cyber-home. Pull up a cup of your favorite brew and let’s start some conversation. If you’re new to my blog, feel free to introduce yourself in the comments (and if you’ve already been following the Groove for a bit, go ahead and introduce yourself too, because why should the new kids have all the fun ?)
If you’re a first-time Groover, it’s probably because you came from Ms. Wicked’s (a.k.a. Magaly Guerrero’s) site. We’ve been friends for years now, chatting on the phone regularly and I’ve made several trips to visit her in NYC, since her health hasn’t cooperated enough to have her visit Bucks Co, PA (but we’re keeping our fingers crossed). I had an inkling some things needed to get juggled around, so she could manage her new itinerary. But I was floored when she asked me if I could take over “Doing it Alone is Quite Yummy, But…”
My first thought—Dang, that’s a big mantle to take on!
It kind of reminded me of the time when Jon Stewart announced he was leaving the Daily Show and tagged Trevor Noah as his replacement. I LOVED the Daily Show and the job Jon Stewart did as host. Sure, Trevor Noah was funny and all, but, but… that was one of my favorite shows. How was it ever going to be the same?
The truth was, it wasn’t. It’s still hysterically funny, must-see TV in my book, but Mr. Noah is a different person from Mr. Stewart. He brings his own perspective as the host that is downright charming, while still providing biting commentary. So nope, I’m not Magaly. She’s cool and a serious bad ass. Me? I’m a bit of a nerdy goofball obsessed with tea. But I’ll do my best. Ms. Wicked could do with having one less thing on her buffet sized plate, and I’m happy to give her breathing room (and maybe a short bit of poetry, which I'll also be linking to the Garden) in her honor to kick off her new-found bit of rest):
Battle tested bones
demand more moments of calm.
to ensure fangs are ready
so every bite counts.
I’ve changed the name of the challenge to Blogging Around with Rommy, and a new post will go up every Tuesday at midnight EST.
So as the author H.H. Munroe (better known as Saki) once said, “Find yourself a cup; the teapot is behind you. Now tell me about hundreds of things.” Talk to me about how your week is going, how you feel about clog dancing, or maybe tell me about a time when you were faced with a change you weren’t quite so sure about but delighted you in the end. If you’ve got your own blog and want to let your muse boogie with the idea of surprising changes that ended up being a good thing, feel free to drop a link in the comments section too.
