HUMP it up!

Dear friends,

Have you ever thought what you might be doing if you were not in the current profession you are? I flirt with the idea of being a DJ. Funny how much music still excites me, and moving to music, in other words, dancing, is tantamount to pleasure. And, of course, these great reads around cyberland are also:

“Over the Moon,” says one contributor, and I couldn’t agree more. It’s moments like these that make all the editing hours so worth every second.

Contributors include Len Kuntz, Meg Tuite, Eryk Wenziak, Helen Vitoria, Alex Pruteanu, Nate Tower, Laurel Landis, Bill Yarrow, Agnes Marton, Christopher Allen, Sheldon Lee Compton, Gessy Alvarez, Sam Virzi, Justin F. Ridgeway, and Sara Peterson.

    Hump it up when you don’t really need it. Hump it up until you can feel it.
    I too toy with the idea of DJ’ing in my own coffee shop. And so many other career ideas. FUN! Thanks for the wonderful post, keeping us all in the know!

    Yup, DJ or performer. Oh wait, I already do that, and you asked what I MIGHT be doing if not this. Traveling around the world?

    Musician/singer/songwriter of the Americana guitars, mandolins, string band variety, protagonist Mugsy Phlegmming in my own detective noir spoof, photo journalist, or maker of hand made artist’s books. Thanks for posing the question. I may continue to ponder this for the rest of the day.
