We got a new piano at our house yesterday.

It was raining when he pushed it up the steps, but we were excited.


We were trying to tell the man who delivered it that we were

going to make a revolution with the songs we were going to play on it…the mommie revolution!


“Is that like, for housewives or something?”

he asked.


“No, it’s about seeing our stuff in a different way.”



“It’s also about the philosophy behind pop music” I told him.

“You mean that crap that’s on the radio?”


“Yes,” I said.



The mommie revolution is on elephant journal,

for your enjoyment!

We’ll be slaving over the hot stove,


just for you!

lveo. peace!
