A Day with Sting!

23 Jul

Sting

Before I forget again and go on to something else, I wanted to share with you quickly my experience (where I am still on a high) seeing Mr. Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner perform last week! “Who, you say?” (in an english accent) Sting!    

The CBS Early Show has their live Summer Concert series every year and who was on the plaza performing, but STING himself.   Not only was he performing but he had the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra with him!  Taking his famous songs and revamping them once again to bring a delight of creativity and happiness.   The last time I saw  him (yes, I am a FAN!) was at NYC St. John’s Cathedral church in December ’09 and before that in London!  However, this engagement was quite wonderful; it was outside and I was so in the moment!  

It’s ironic how a group of people in one setting all have the admiration of the same thing!  I was singing along (not very good), but I knew every word, every bridge in each song.  I could have been part of the ensemble, just in case they needed a stand-in!  NOT!!!!    

Did you know Sting is a “New Yorker”, he has a home in NYC; brought back in 2006 and often is in Central Park….in case you thought you saw someone who may have looked like him and you mistakenly said “Naaaah, it can’t be”!   It probably was.  Now for those of you who say you must have some money to see a good concert, I say think again for the six song performance was worth every minute of the wait to see him, for it was hosted by CBS Early Show at no charge.  Even if you could not get close to the stage (like me), you had his music in the backdrop loud and clear.  It was beautiful.  And of course, he’s gorgeous!  Not bad for 58!    

Can you tell that I’m a fan!  When looking at the video attached, please don’t mind my singing (I was having a good time)!  The rendition of Roxanne is simply beautiful.    His new CD,  Symphonocities has just been released and you can check out his tour dates on www.sting.com.    I  will be sure to put up the other videos of the performance, but I wanted to share this quickly, for I would not have time to upload them and have Chaz to edit them this weekend!     

Did I say I had a good time!   Yeah, I did! 🙂

Interior Design Magazine…Makes You Dream!

22 Jul

When I receive my monthly issue, I am always so excited on what the cover will be!  The cover is the clincher, where editors sit around a table deciding what photo will make the cover!   

The editors never seem to be wrong, because this issue’s cover had me in amazement!    Not only does the information in this Interior Design Magazine quite helpful, but the photos allow the reader to dream.  A giraffe! Did you ever think?   So; if you ever want to pinpoint what your style is or you are  kind of on the shelf about being outrageous, or perhaps want to make the unthinkable, well thinkable; this magazine is full of crazy and fun ideas!  The website is full of great ideas; as well!

So often we think of things as the usual, where you may want it to be drastically the unusual, different in your surroundings.  Now, yes it up to you to not to be forced into a concept that you are not comfortable with in your home.  You are to be happy be with what is being decided for you, if you are hiring a decorator or designer.  If it’s you doing the decorating, who would know more better than YOU? 

However, I do suggest take chances.  The most that could happen, is that you don’t like it and guess what?  That’s what paint is about, that’s what I would like to return this order is about and the OH NO’s are about.  You get to simply change it! 

So, when you get a moment, review the Interior Design Magazine issues for some ideas.  There are so many others too, but this is one of my all time favorites.  

It will not leave you disappointed at all! 🙂

Be well, Letia  🙂

Diana!

13 Jul

Dianna Ross was spotted last week!

Diana Ross shops at Barney's in NYC.

Why do we just love Diana Ross?  For some of it’s takes us back to the time when we knew the words to the many songs she has sung in our sleep!  For some it’s the fashion, so iconic; a true diva with flair.  For me; it’s her being a woman… wholeheartedly!  Just love her!  Always, reminding me to dare to dream and keep at it!   How about you?
