Will You be Our Valentine???

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

Will you be ours? Come solo and we’ll serenade you… bring a group of friends and we’ll celebrate you… bring the family and we’ll get the kiddos singing and dancing. Everybody can relate to love, no matter what their life situation is.

The Fabulous Heftones are Lynn Hershberger (Hefferan) (me) and Brian Hefferan… arguably the most romantic act in Lansing.

The Avenue Cafe is in the former Gone Wired Cafe (same owners, new name). It’s on the 2000 block of Michigan Avenue in Lansing, Michigan… my favorite block in Lansing. (Down the block from Green Door, across the street from Emil’s Italian Restaurant, sharing a wall with Everybody Reads/Triple Goddess Bookstore.)

It’s a family-friendly neighborhood “pub” of sorts… food made in-house and Michigan brews, and good locally-based music. Harmony, followed by more harmony.

Please join us.

(If you can’t make it… click here to hear us sing By the Light of the Silvery Moon.)

Warmth under a Blanket of Snow

Thursday, February 6th, 2014

It feels like eternal snow here in Lansing…

Allowing the snow to be a blanket (warm, snug, fluffy), because it persists in tugging on my awareness like a toddler pleading, “Mom, Mom, Mom…”

Choosing to change all word meanings toward the concepts of “warm” and “knit.”

My JoyBug looked tucked into a soft white blanket, before I woke her to create a day together.


Sitting in a cafe, near the corner of two fully-windowed walls… Six inches from the sidewalk snow blanket.

Giving thanks I’m in a place where we are warm and safe indoors most of the winter. And where we can buy wool sweaters instead of raising sheep, shearing them, washing, carding, spinning and knitting the wool.

And where I can enjoy tea leaves from halfway across this globe, prepared for me for a few dollars.

Abundance, warmth and knitting are the words of the day. Even if I never pick up my knitting needles & wool.

So, how are YOU?
