Playlist For May 13, 2018: Ahhhhhh!

And we're off! We are officially in that wonderful cycle of the year that goes from May 1st to January 2nd! Like sliding down an icy slope, it goes FAST. Something every weekend. Something every Friday night. Something EVERY! The world spins faster this time of year, while we barbecue and firework and bike and baseball and mow and rake and swim and carve and feast and decorate and drink way too much lemonade or beer or gin or champagne (or all of that).  And that brings us to January 2nd, when the hang-overs linger and the tree must be tossed and there is nothing on the calendar...except for snow, unfashionable outerwear and an errant boring holiday.

So I say, GRAB IT and don't let go! Enjoy every mosquito bite, every humid degree, every cob of corn. Add some music (when you get tired of those bird serenades I'm hearing at the moment) and maybe that music will be Broadway.

This week, we fulfill requests for A Chorus Line, Lil Abner, Candide (I have esoteric listeners!), fly some kites, invite some darling divas over for a girls' night, and celebrate all you Mothers out there! I'll throw some shrimps on the barbie (or gluten-free veggie burgers, it's all good), get out the lawn chairs, and we'll go barefoot! :)
