Hope you are ready to soar into a new month!
Talons out, wings spread,
Attitude of great gratitude checked, and
ready for a month of wonder?
How bout that sculpture?
Took my breath away out there in Sedona it did, along with those red rocks and the sacredness of just everything.
Here we are
May Day 2012
as I sat last night for a bit of evening entertainment,
I was saying
May Day May Day
or maybe I was saying
SOS SOS stop the madness,
I can't remember now.
Perhaps now rather than a May Day Parade we should have a May Day rethinking
and name it a
May Day Call To Action!
As I sat and listened to interviews
from some man who is now in his 10 minutes of fame I was screaming
and thinking to myself about all the people who get their fame after someone famous dies.
this man is now getting his fame by telling of his sexual exploits with Liberace
and claiming to have slept with both he and Michael Jackson!
And I have to wonder how easy it is for people to come forth and fill the air waves with such claims and nonsense
when there is no one left to tell their side of the story; when no one really cares or needs to know all of that, yet the air waves must be at a loss for real news or entertainment to even think it worthy of folks time.
After all the one thing I hear when speaking across the country from 95% of the people and even from the kids these days is
"we just don't have any time to do things, to even watch television and do fun things".
Why in the world would Matt Lauer, Entertainment Tongight, ABC News and 60 Minutes think that folks with little time want to hear someone and their claims to fame fill the air with who they slept with
that is now long dead and gone?
Now we get to hear the "real deal" again about Whitney Houston with interviews of Bobby Brown and Matt Lauer?
I love Matt and he can nail an interview;
but to ask Bobby Brown about who got Whitney on drugs and leave it to him to give his side of that story now that she is dead
is like asking a cow if it prefers chicken
dont' ya think?
What are people thinking?
The big time dinner of laughs and chuckles at the White House that is as much tradition and a time to let off some much needed stress for all parties to poke fun and laugh, will now be used against all in this smak and smear campaign
yet at the time, great laughs were had,
funny or at least efforts at funny were made.
High ticket guests were invited to share an evening of wit, charm, and sometimes actually funny jokes;
but the Kardachian invitation and appearance among guests?
Talk about a joke among politicians;
yet money talks and all else walks I guess.
And we must remember when Monica L. was a wee lad crawling about the white house floors and picking up whatever she got her hands on and putting it in her mouth; she has grown and moved on to other things, but we seldom hear about her anymore... she has said all that she wanted to creating a stir a national controversy
in a world of high tech and instant gratification.
Bet the forefathers look down from the heavens and chuckle with great glee that horses and buggies were the mode of transport and carrier pigeons were the internet of gossip and t.v.'s were not around in those days
to spread the news and the words or actions of others.
Distress calls were left for issues of National or International distress
Americans stood together
even if they did not like the current administration they still found the courage and pride of America led them to stand together United under one flag.
We learned from mistakes,
made choices for the greater good of our country and humanity
and our communities and neighbors,
we watched television to be entertained not disgusted
nor depressed by news and interviews of those makin a buck from and off the dead.
and let our voices be heard.
We honored differences and knew that we would not always win the popularity contest, but we knew right from wrong.
And now we can look forward to more who want their claim to fame through making a few cents off the deceased who can no longer speak for themselves or who had the common decency to keep their bedroom a place for their own business and not of the public or the press.
Why in the world would we believe the words of someone who claims to have slept with Liberace or Michael Jackson; or turned Whitney Houston on to or off of drugs
when you peel the onion
"what difference does it matter" anyway?"
Don't we have a life to live that is precious, that is time sensitive and stamped with gratitude, with attitude, with greatness?
Today in S.C. a lovely woman named Ali, has decided to bring her beloved Dad home from the VA hospital. He is a Veteran of the U.S. service. He is dying. She wants him to be comfortable, to know the love and safety and warmth of home.
She is doing what she needs to do, to make sure her Dad is taken care of and dies the way he wants to;
at home with his family.
I believe she is about to experience the things that provide increased calls of "May Day" along this journey.
She will probably find that folks start to get in her business, that people dont know what to say,
so they will open their mouth and insert their foot or step on their tongue
she will want to scream
"get out of my business or my home"!
Just like we've talked about here
And yes, these are high stress and precious moments;
laden with emotions and with those who need to STAND BY HER,
to do or just be for her.
Yet, a dollar to a donut
some with say/do/be
with haste and with the wrong thing
only to create worry, tension, angst.
And for that I am so sorry dear
She is nervous, she is afraid, she is needing all the support and Universal Energy that we can send her, that the healing world can offer.
When folks ask what you need Ali,
point them to the cabinet or give them the windex and a rag,
let them wash the windows
or give them the #'s you need to call,
or a jar for some dough to help with paying the florist or funeral home.
That is what friends are for dear.
On this May Day, this is the stuff
we should be seeing on that big ole' TV in homes across the nation;
that would be an interview for Matt Lauer
don't YOU think?
One that would fill the world
with remembering those very things that affect and fill all our lives
each moment of every day
and that truly matter
as we remember
My heart is with you Ali, with your Dad... May these moments fill you with all you both need,
my thoughts and prayers are with you now and always.
Hospice will be there for you both,
as we all are surrounding you
with all that you need.
Thank your Dad for us for his service
may he have a peaceful journey home, with you by his side...
Walk in Beauty
