Post #15: Seeing stars

Last Thursday evening, I had the chance to see a performance of “Miles Electric Band”. This group of incredibly talented gentlemen (some had traveled with The Rolling Stones) brought so much energy and life to the stage, and their sound was unlike one I’ve heard before. Led by Vincent Wilburn Jr. (Miles Davis’ nephew), the group came together to play from the heart and share with the crowd how Miles Davis had influenced them, goodness did they leave an impression.

That weekend, I volunteered at a Comic and Entertainment Expo. From behind the admissions booth I got to interact with a wide array of creative and excited individuals. It was Sunday, when I got to wander around the Expo myself, that I got to catch a glimpse of a number of famous faces. While walking around the autograph tables I briefly saw Nathan Fillion, Wallace Shaun, Billy Dee Williams, Corey Dee Williams, Steven Yeun, Mara Wilson, Colm Meaney, Kristian Nairn, Ruth Connell, and walked right past Patrick Warburton as he was headed back to his table.
What is exciting to me, (and a lot of other fans) about having these opportunities to be in the same room as famous people, is the fact that you get to be a little bit closer to the people that in one way or another have inspired you and impacted your life. Thank you to the amazing actors, actresses, musicians, authors and artists who have used their extraordinary talents and minds to change the way we live our lives and see the world.

Recipe: Chewy Double Chocolate Cookies

Today was Foodie Friday number 23! The day began slowly, with rain clouds hoovering over the house, and my blankets claiming them as one of their own. Nonetheless, I eventually got out of bed and decided to make cookies. What better way to enjoy a lazy day than with a comfort food like cookies?

These Chewy Double Chocolate Cookies are thick and fudgy, making them a delicious way to indulge that chocolate craving. We all crave the foods and sweets we love once and a while, and sometimes we just have to give in. Life’s too short to eat food we don’t enjoy eating. I used chopped milk chocolate for my cookies, however, any kind of chocolate chunk or chip would be fair game.
