And it’s Hard to Dance with the Devil on Your Back

So shake it out!

I’m fighting a fever and cold symptoms this morning, but I could really give a fuck. I have Flo + the Machine on my iPlayer and I’m doing a little dancing. To Shake it Out! As you know a few days ago I posted a story about what I felt when I went to a F+TM concert at the Fox Theater in Detroit. It’s a gorgeous theater. Built in the 20’s I think. The balcony is spring loaded and sways when you dance. It’s kick ass!

A dear friend read the post and told me I had to send it to Flo. That she loved to hear from fans. She loves the artwork, the poetry and the stories. I posted it on her FB page first. But then later in the night I realized there was a contest that I could enter. So I sure enough did.

And I’m damned if I do and I’m damned if I don’t
So here’s to drinks in the dark at the end of my road
And I’m ready to suffer and I’m ready to hope
It’s a shot in the dark aimed right at my throat
‘Cause looking for heaven, found the devil in me
Looking for heaven, for the devil in me
Well what the hell I’m gonna let it happen to me

Last night before bed, I decided to check my email. AND I FUCKING HEARD FROM THEM ALREADY!!!!! They liked it. Doesn’t mean anything will come of it. But I know they liked it. I had to give them a little more information. I did and now I just have to wait. Till the end of August. I’m not a patient woman. This is NOT going to be easy.

Maybe nothing will come of it. Maybe it will. Maybe, maybe, maybe I’m on my way. By the grace of God and Florence, that red-haired chanteuse, I just may be. On. My. Way!
