Wild Fact About Me Wants to learn improv piano, so I can perform with my husband, a talented harmonica player, band leader and singer.
My Philosophy I choose: - Not to watch television, because of constant advertising. - Not to read local papers, because they tell only half-truths. - To ignore advertising everywhere as much as possible. - Herbal remedies and Alternative Medicine wherever possible. - Vegetarian cuisine, because of the hormones and chemicals in meat. - Homegrown food, whenever possible.
What Gives Me Hope Reading over Watching, either books or online. - Texas blues, because its roots are still growing and vibrant. I want to live my dreams, and encourage you to do so also. I want to love everyone for who they are.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Sounds like what we need here in America: Nationalization of resources, Decentralization of decision making back to the municipalities and regions; eradication of rampant government corruption; creation of a national health system and a national education system through college; decriminalization of coca and marijuana, and the return of land to the people live there.
What/who changed my life and why The time I spent overseas turned my life around, and taught me the importance of education, music, the earth. When I returned I understood how manipulated we are in the US by the media and government and how they control us. I teach my children about activism, and encourage them to follow their dreams, wherever they lead. I want my teens to live their teenage years, not try to become adults too early.

    A Smile Is Worth a Thousand Words

     

     ... just smile even when life gives you no reason
    to do it. It will light your heart.
    I wish you my dear Friend a week full of smiles.

    "The people I'm furious with
    are the women's liberationists.
    They keep getting up on soapboxes
    and proclaiming
    women are brighter than men.
    That's true, but it should be kept quiet
    or it ruins the whole racket."

    - Anita Loos -
     New York Times, 10 February 1974

     

     ... I simply love this quote.
    I hope that it makes you smile

    Reasons to Smile:

    - Remember its quite true to say
           One smile is worth a dozen frowns.
    - It enriches those who receive,
    Without making poorer those who give.
    - Among the worlds expensive things
    A smile is very cheap.
    - The world will seem a better place
    And all because you smiled.
    - And after all this my dear Friend
    Just give a big one: it's Weekend



    ... so, I wish you a wonderful one.
    And, smile dear Friend
    With Love

    Our friendship is an ocean
    Stretching
    Far and wide
    Never ending
    Filled with memories
    That last a lifetime
    Our friendship is
    Just like the stars
    Both go beyond
    Man's reach
    So best friends it is
    Now and forever.
    That's the best feeling there is
    Nothing could be better
    Now and forever.

    Kindness to Animals

    Little children, never give
    Pain to things that feel and live
    Let the gentle robin come
    For the crumbs you save at home
    As his meat you throw along
    He’ll repay you with a song.
    Never hurt the timid hare
    Peeping from her green grass lair
    Let her come and sport and play
    On the lawn at close of day.
    The little lark goes soaring high
    To the bright windows of the sky
    Singing as if t'were always spring
    And fluttering on an untired wing
    Oh! Let him sing his happy song
    Nor do these gentle creatures wrong.



    ... and a blessed week sweet friend
    With Love

    Let Me Live
    The darkness is closing in
    Soon I will be gone
    Why do I deserve this?
    I've done nothing wrong.
    I'm thrown in to a crate
    I feel so cold and alone
    I wonder what's next
    The future is unknown.
    Hundreds of others around me
    Screaming for their parents
    I know they will not come
    They've been shot protecting us.
    Everyday this happens
    Innocent animals killed for money
    Another day, another kill
    It's not the one bit funny.
    Do your self a favour
    If not for you, for your future kids
    Save us endangered animals
    Please just let us live!

    A Special World

    A special world for you and me
    A special bond one cannot see
    It wraps us up in its cocoon
    And holds us fiercely in its womb.

    Its fingers spread like fine spun gold
    Gently nestling us to the fold
    Like silken thread it holds us fast
    Bonds like this are meant to last.

    And though at times a thread may break
    A new one forms in its wake
    To bind us closer and keep us strong
    In a special world, where we belong.

    A true Friend

    A true friend never walks away
    A true friend will always stay
    A true friend looks out for you

    A true friend tries to make you smile
    Tries to replace that frown
    They may not always succeed
    But they rarely let you down

    My arms for you are open
    This heart for you does care
    And when I think you need me
    I'll try to always be there.

    Friends

    There's nothing as nice
    As someone who shares,
    Your laughter, your secrets,
    Your wishes and cares,
    Someone who's there
    Through your good times and tears,
    Who stays by your side
    As your friend through the years.

    Standing by,
    All the way.
    Here to help you through your day.

    Holding you up,
    When you are weak,
    Helping you find what it is you seek.

    Catching your tears,
    When you cry.
    Pulling you through when the tide is high.

    Just being there,
    Through thick and thin,
    All just to say, you are my friend.



    ... have a wonderful weekend my dear friend

    My soul is the piano,
    Your words are the keys.
    Together we compose,
    The most wonderfu melodies.
    Daily my soul replays
    All the words
    You send my way.
    Just like a composer
    When is writing a play.
    I hear all the music,
    As you strikes a key.
    And a great orchestra,
    Is what you make see.
    We are two souls
    Sharing a common ground.
    The wonderful friendship
    That we have found.
    So what is a piano,
    Without the player.
    It's like a soul,
    Without a desire.
    That sits alone in the dark,
    Waiting for someone to light a spark.
    A hope or a desire,
    Waiting for someone to inspire.
    To play the song of the heart,
    A song of two souls
    that will never depart.
