HERE'S TO YOU WEDNESDAY


SURPRISE. Drum roll please. I present to you HERE'S TO YOU WEDNESDAY. With love. It feels like I have been working on this post *forever.* I debated waiting and posting this tomorrow so that it would land on the right day. But, that makes it one day later (in my mind) rather than actually on the nose. Gah. Yeah, I was shooting for last Thursday. And then I would read something after that and think... well, I can work with that. And so it goes. The reality was that everything was harder. Or maybe I am out of practice. I don't know. What I do know is that I had a really tough time narrowing down the ultimate choice for some of you. As in Really.Tough.Time. And I am frequently surprised when some of you ride similar blogging tracks so that I dedicate the same footage to two people. That always blows me away.

Here is the recap of what is going on...

This used to be a weekly event landing typically on Thursdays. It is my hope that it will be a weekly event again some day... The best (or worst) part is that I am not going to explain why I chose "whatever" footage for each of you. If, you watch your footage and are scratching your head at the end, well that means I didn't do a very good job. However, all is not lost. You can email me at rarichards68@gmail.com and ask me what I was thinking when I chose that particular piece of footage off of youtube and connected it to you. And then I will tell you. Then I will start sending up prayers that I haven't offended the crap out of whoever is on the receiving end of that email....lol. Because, honestly, I will tell you right now... I admire all of you enormously so I really hope that doesn't happen.

Also, this is not an exclusive venture by any means. I hope that you will take the time to watch ALL of the footage because I don't pick bad footage:-) I also hope that you might check out the blog of the person I dedicated the footage to because they are pretty darn awesome. If you haven't figured this out yet... I pick the footage based on something that you've written or something that I've gleaned from your personality. Think on that for a while... If you are having trouble watching the entire video (meaning it is being cut off on one side), click on it a couple of times and it will take you straight over to youtube. If you click on the four squares at the bottom corner of the video, it will enlarge it to fill your screen. The escape key will bring it back to normal size. The back arrow will bring you back to my page.

Now, let's get this PARTY STARTED!!!!

  6. You always seem to nail it with the Joan of Arcadia clips, you know that, Robin? You have such a gift, whether it's intuition or just being an amazing listener of what's going on under the surface, and finding music or movies or tv shows that perfectly sum up what we're doing in our lives.

    You have such a beautiful heart. Thank you for my video :)

    Hugs and love,

  7. Robin: You have a great soul. I can live through these things. I always do. But those kicks do hurt. I am ugly with scars.

  8. Robin, I confess. I don't always view all of the clips. But this time I sat down and watched every single one. And between laughter and tears, the whole time I thought, this woman is incredibly gifted in her perceptions. I don't know you well Robin, but I have always had the sense that things touch you much more than the rest of us. You demonstrate that by the time and patience you take to honor each of us. And, Robin, I'm not sure you ever saw this post...but I ran it again for you. If the link doesn't take you there, the post was from June 7.
