123 Andres Says Fly, Fly!

123 Andres Says Fly, Fly!

This bilingual collection of 21 songs is happy, uplifting, and oh so sweet. There are 10 songs in Spanish and 11 in English. My daughter loves it and we have a few friends who are learning Spanish in school who would love it too. He sings about seeds, flying, birds, the moon, and even about vowels!

‘Arriba Abajo’ comes out today, June 10th! Go to his website for more information.

I’m a Natural in My World

What are you a “natural” at doing?  I am a natural at dancing. Been doing it since the age of three. Do it all the time. Can’t help it.

Would you prefer a one floor house or multiple levels?  I prefer a one floor house. I’ve lived in both and I definitely prefer a nice one floor house, nice and spread out. Stairs are overrated!

What was your favorite subject in school?  My favorite subject in school was English. And I still enjoy writing, proofreading, editing, and reading.

Complete this sentence: If only the rain..  would fall when needed and cease when not.

Hello, Friend

Two years ago today, I lost my dear friend, Harisa Kapetanovic. A stroke took her at a very young age. She was one of the kindest people I’ve ever known. She was from Bosnia and visited her home every summer with her husband and son. We used to joke about the way she pronounced words or couldn’t quite think of the appropriate English word sometimes. She was kind, fun, smart, and compassionate.

About a week before she died, I called her anxiously wondering if she could help me with a work problem and she answered the phone saying, “Hello friend.” I will never forget how my anxiety faded and I just laughed. Despite the language barrier, she always had a way with words.

You are missed every day, Harisa. I know you are making many angel friends.
