forgiveness. gratitude. a quick hello. plus my new photo blog!

by Andrea O'Connell

You know, thinking and writing about forgiveness, gratitude, and humility is so far inferior to experiencing it; I cannot stop smiling.

I am having a wonderful weekend; busy with work and theatre and catching up with old friends.  The weekend started with seeing a delicious concert version of Into the Woods, at the Caldwell Theatre.

Also, because I love photography, I decided to start a photo blog that I’d like to share with you.  It’s called Lovingjazz’s Photo Blog.  (Yup, it’s named after my dog, who is the subject of a few of my photos!)

I love to photograph nature, as you will see.

I am also working on another blog.  It’s about a topic that I am passionate about: Bullying (in schools and in the workplace.)  It’s not ready for prime-time, though!  I will post a link soon.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!  I will, even though I have to go into the office for a bit, it’s still a lovely weekend… 🙂

Here’s the URL to Loving Jazz’s Photo Blog:

    Awww, thank you my dear friend. Yes, I love jazz music, too! I named Jazz that because he is so jazzy…he dances and prances still, just like when he was a puppy. He’s a 10 pound black and white ball of music ‘n love!

    Jazz music reminds me of my Dad. He loved it so much and that’s all I heard growing up. I now turn my car radio to jazz and when I go out in the car it goes auto to that station. My husand likes the 60’s music so when he gets into the car his seat and radio station come on for him. It’s all a matter of taste but Jazz, there’s nothing like it on earth.
    Here’s to all those taented souls that creeated such dream like music for us,

    Sooooooooo you named your doggie Jazz. That’s a relaly cute name. Does he/she like music?

    Take care dear friend, off to do chores.

      Oh I agree! I love Jazz… I love the vocalists like Sarah Vaughn, Billie Holiday, Ella, and so many other greats…. So, I named my baby boy “Jazz” because he prances when he walks and when he runs or jumps it’s so jazzy! He’s all motion and fun…. and he’s black and white, and that reminds me of the black and white notes on a piano, or the black ink on white sheet music!

      And he is so funny about some music…. if it’s shrill he howls to the moon! He’s a Chihuahua and they are known to sing when they don’t particularly like a high-pitched sound!
