Spring Forward

Did you all remember to set your clocks ahead? I didn't and was later than usual. Well, I apologize if this post makes no sense. My thoughts have been rather jumbled lately. Blame it on the lunar cycle, my cycle, no sex in the past few days (hey, I'm in my 30's - girl's gotta have it), whatever. I'm just tired of cold weather and looking forward to spring. I also didn't need to lose an hour of sleep. Hell, I don't sleep enough as it is. Anyway, this was a good weekend for me to purge, clean, reflect, and introspect. What do I want? What do I want to get rid of? What do I want to do differently, better? This is the time to think of those things. The newness of Spring inspires those questions. Spring cleaning, right?
So, tonight I went to see a new band which included a favorite keyboardist of mine, Will Rast. His new 9-piece band is called, Will Rast's Funk Ark. Anytime I hear the words funk and jazz together, I'm down. They were all good but the drummer and trumpet player blew me away. Just what I needed. A nice intimate performance at The Space.
I also got a chance to see my nephew this weekend. What's better than being a singleton and seeing the sweetest, cutest, funniest, smartest, 2 and 1/2 year old in the world? Nothing. And what aunt doesn't say that? Kids are the happiest people in the world and another inspiration to do just that - be happy!

Hey, I saw Alice Smith perform last night at the Black Cat....EXCELLENT concert!! You should check her out, she's a DC native and a Grammy nominee.

Actually, Will was on his way to the Black Cat to do the opening with W. Ellington. I almost went because I heard she's really good.

Yea, you should definitely try to see her next time she visits.
