Glorious - Karen Clark Sheard

Something upsetting sent me to a lethargic mode longer than I would have allowed myself to be in. Since I'm having none of it today I thought Karen Clark Sheard's Glorious would jump start my internal buttons. This song reminds me of Gloria Estefan's Conga. Just the tempo I suppose. Glorious lyrics apparently make the difference. Stirring this one is.

This song can definitely change your mood. However, as I woke up and couldn't sleep I hope I can get back to sleep now. LOL. I'm rocking out and praising but that's a good thing. I liked the beat and I always loved Gloria Estafan's music from the 80's too.

God bless you,

Love it! I had to get up and move my body to that great music, but now am sitting again to write this...I think I'll listen again...I do hope it lifted your don't want to be in a downward spirla now...too much to praise God for and to be joyful about. Let whatever happened go find a hole to bury itself in, and don't let the devil have a foothold. God bless you!

The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…

Sense and Sensibility: 200th anniversary

In 1811 Thomas Egerton of Whitehall, London published Sense and Sensibility. Quick math shows it has been two centuries since Jane Austen became a full-fledged author.

Quite an anniversary, indeed. A celebration, I declare.

Blogs regarding the publication anniversary of this romance novel picture Jane Austen's engagements whilst making the final touches of her manuscript from Sloane Street. In letters to her sister Cassandra, Jane gave accounts of her shopping for muslin, the party that their brother Henry and SIL Eliza gave; mentioned several acquaintances, and referred to her book as S and S.

As a fan I wonder which between sense and sensibility did JA deem more important since she portrayed both attributes equally well. I'm obliged to enthuse over my S & S reading experience. Alas, I only managed fourteen chapters before getting sidetracked by another novel, the very first that JA wrote. I will resume and complete my affair with the celebrant before 2011 ends.
