Tomorrow’s Media Today


Hello, world!

Welcome to mousewords 2.0! It’s been a while since my sites have been up and running, but it’s been a busy year, with a lot of exciting news to report. I’ll have a sum-up post soon, and will continue to fine-tune the widgets around here for a while.

In the meantime, let’s jump right in to today…with a new media event:




CINCINNATI – TILBURG (NL) – Internet Radio Station iJoy Radio will be premiering a new show this Saturday. Ed Ovett, known from the Podcast “Ed’s Mixed Bag”, came up with the idea to bring Zack Daggy’s MothPod Productions and iJoy Radio’s Mark Baars together, resulting in this New Media Stampede, called “Tomorrow’s Media Today” (TMT)….Read the rest on

I have the honor of being one of the panelists on this new show, along with Ed, Zack, and Mark. It’ll be a blast! C’mon and stop by!

See you then. And welcome back. :-)




I’m Not As Cranky Anymore

I can’t stand it, but sometimes I catch myself with such negative, defeatist, discouraged thoughts.  I was just doing that without realizing it.  I’m working on managing my client’s (sister’s) photography business details right now, and I was feeling the press of too much to do, not enough time in which to do it, thoughts of how I could have done some things better—or managed my time more properly.   Thoughts getting tangled, going down, down, down, into the realm of grumbling.

I have Christmas music on repeat…you know how it is with “repeat,” it becomes a nice background, and you hardly hear it, except for a word here and there.  It’s that way for me, at least.   But suddenly, as my thoughts grew gnarled and dingy, suddenly, all I could hear was the music.

Todd Agnew singing “God With Us.”  Emmanuel, God With Us.  The King abides with us.  Todd Agnew’s raspy, powerful voice, with a soaring chorus as accompaniment.  Symphony music that wraps around one’s heart and pulls it Heavenward with silver strings.  Ending on the soft hint of the timeless notes to “We Three Kings”…the Magi.

The King abides with us.  Suddenly I feel like I can do anything in the world, in record time.  Suddenly I know my King is here with me.  I see golden lights where there used to be darkness.  I feel arms surrounding me, as a safe refuge. 

I’m not alone…it will be all right.  Thanks, Todd.   

And thank you, my King.
