Every once in while I check Annie Lennox's website. On it she has a blog and I'm curious about what a woman of her seasoning writes about. 'Thinking too much' and 'thinking about thinking' are familiar subjects. About that she writes...

When I try to write songs, I don't start out with a subject...I just follow whatever enters my head.So what I write is usually something of an organic process. I don't strategise what you're going to "think," unless you're studying or following some kind of instruction. I mean...what's thinking like for YOU?Does it come in shapes, words, colours, feelings, senses...or is it a mixture of everything??I can't even begin to describe it personally. Do we all "think" in similar ways...or do we "think" differently? Obviously we all hold varying linguistic structures, perceptions and opinions..but I'm referring to "thinking" in the context of consciousness here. Doth the lady "think" too much??? I "think" I probably do....Any psychoanalysts out there??? Please don't answer that!

On the way to school this morning, my daughter and I talked about songs that evoke memories. She told me that Annie Lennox reminded her of the times we girls spent together in the studio before she started school. She said it made her feel warm. Her saying that made me feel super warm. I think Annie Lennox was probably feeling warm in the picture below...ya! I want Sting to sing with my band!

I've been loving your latest posts, they make me laugh and make me think. It's funny, I showed the picture of us to my husband, and he said you looked like Annie Lennox. She rocks, and so do you! I also loves me some Sting- I have a little thing for him! You're a good mom:)

Hi! You don't know me, but I just stumbled upon your blog by accident. I love your art and have been in love with it for a while! One of my friends had one of your pieces (the Bridesmaids) in her house and I instantly fell in love with it! Just wanted to let you know.
