My husband begged me to write a blog to chill me out, so here I am.

Piss & Vinegar was my first thought for its title, because my mother says I’m full of it. Some people think it’s an insult, but it’s a real compliment to me. My second thought was Burns the Fire because that’s what my late grandmother used to call me (brent a fayerl) from the late 19th century Yiddish classic Oyfn Pripetchik, and I think it reaches farther, goes deeper.

Until and if I change my mind, this blog is going to be about whatever strikes my fancy. The point is to play the keys and let go. The hope is to share, so write back, right now!

Thought of the day: Fan the flames.
