I confess, there is no Bess. I may have met a Bess in my lifetime and I am sure if I did you were a lovely person but I regret I have absolutely no recollection of you and I apologize. KISS had a song about someone named Bess and I think in a delusional moment in my youth I wrote away to join the KISS army, but I digress. When I started this blog I realized I had to call it something. For reasons I can't explain, I thought of the song "Bess, You is My Woman Now"...you know, from the musical. Then I thought, of course, I'll adapt that! So I did. All of this took about five seconds. Now I am stuck with this name and apparently no one but me understands this clever play on words. This is not uncommon. So in summary, the name of this blog means nothing and in retrospect I should have given it a bit more thought. Also, not uncommon.
Postscript: Someone infinitely wiser and with a better memory than me (Jody Paterson) has pointed out the KISS song was "Beth" not "Bess"...you see, I never was a very devoted fan!
Also, the musical in question was Porgy and Bess. Bess, not Beth!
