7 Bullet Friday – May the Fourth, Revenge of the Fifth


  • Que Pasa Festival 2017: Right here in Richmond, Virginia tomorrow (May 6), I’ll be down at the Canal Walk with my Salsa Rueda group and my Argentine Tango friends. We’ll be performing twice. Once at 3:30 p.m. on the Vista Stage (by the canal) and again at 5:30 p.m. on the Virginia Street Stage. It looks like it’s going to be a perfect day for celebrating Cinco de Mayo! If you’re in the Richmond area, please check it out!

  • My favorite song(s) this week: So, I’m a Star Wars fan (and Star Trek, and SciFi in general). Thursday, May 4 is Star Wars Day (“May the Fourth be with you…”) The most wonderful thing came across the airwaves from Palette-Swap Ninja – a mash-up of Star Wars and the Beatles, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts club Band. And, I have to say it is wonderful, fabulously funny, and obviously done with the love and reverence of true fans. If you haven’t heard it yet, please check it out on you tube. The videos are very well done and hilarious.

  • Writing Update: I’m very close to posting my short story, Breathing Underwater! It’s a story about at woman named Nicole who is looking for inspiration to breathe new life into her art. She revisits her childhood haunts and finds much more than she expected.
  • My favorite Abraham quote this week:
    “There isn’t anything anybody wants that is for any other reason than that they think they would feel better in having it.” —Abraham

  • My favorite writing prompt this week:
    “It’s all fun and games, until you’re in a high-speed chase with three police cars on your ass, one of them being driven by your mom.”
  • My favorite dream interpretation this week:
    If the rain is a gentle one, and especially if rainbows are present, this is a positive symbol, foreshadowing the coming of a peaceful interlude and much happiness.
    If the rain is heavy, this indicates a change in the dreamer’s financial fortunes. Depending on his circumstances, it could be a windfall or a major setback.
    A major thunderstorm with thunder and lightning indicates a sudden and unexpected increase in wealth, possibly through a legacy
    Astrological parallel: Venus
    Tarot parallel: The Wheel of Fortune
  • My Favorite from the inter-webs: Do you love words? No, I mean are you a true logophile; passionately, obsessively in love with words? No worries, you don’t have to be. Steve Chrisomalis has enough dedication and zeal to share with the rest of us. This website, called Phrontistery (from the Greek phrontistes ‘thinker’) is a haven and repository for obscure and lost words. Filled with tons of resources, you can find that perfect word to describe the her cloak made of mazarine velvet (rich blue or reddish-blue color) or your villain’s proclivity for killing partridges (perdricide). But, be warned, prepare to spend some time here. If you’re anything like me, once you start looking at the wonderful glossaries of seldom used words, you’ll want to stay a while.
