You know those times when you’re hit with an overwhelming wave of emotions??

That is the time that you be still, let go, and let God. He will provide you with clarity of thought that will allow you to boldly proceed in a positive direction.

I went to the mall Saturday around 10:00 am for the first time in months...I don't know but it feels weird to be outside and around so many people...it feels so very distant...the world seemed changed so fast...it makes me kinda sad...

I was looking for that warm smile coming from the people inside the store...I usually wear a small smile while walking whenever I am outside. Inside the store,market anywhere, it makes me feel good when the people I came across noticed my little smile and smiled back at me, it made me happy...but that day it was so different...there was silence and blank stares...it was like I was watching a movie from 80 years... 😁

I hope things will go back to normal soon...I hope...maybe it will... 🙏🏼

Truly nice! That is one of my faves, though I am enamored with this version:


Oh my, that was the only studio LP that Derek and the Dominos put out. Stellar!

Midnight confession

I just cried listening to Derek and the Dominos Little Wing, remembering listening to it as a sixteen year old in the living room of my childhood home while being questioned by the police because I had stayed away from home the night before, and waited until my dad went to work for his late afternoon shift because I was afraid he would beat me up if I went back home before he left for work. When I moved away from home two years later my mother told me she wished I had left when I was sixteen. I cried because now I believe I spent the night with an angel, literally someone I did not know, who was watching over me because I was alone and naive and idealistic and high. Nothing untoward happened... and who would believe that? It took me many years to realize my rebellion against the constraints my mother attempted to put on me had roots from a much younger self who had come to believe that she did not care about me. Intellectually it was always easy to understand and accept the fact that with ten siblings, my mother did not really have time for us as individuals. Emotionally it left a void. My mother also admitted many years later that she did not raise us. My twin brother had commented to her about not remembering being mothered by her, and she told him we were raised by our older brothers and sisters. That in itself was not a bad thing :)

PS~ the tears were in gratitude to God... and the grief I have caused, and suffered, as a result of not feeling loved.

“Ah, love, let us be true to one another!
For the world, which seems to lie before us
Like a land of dreams,
So various, so beautiful, so new,
Hath really neither joy, nor love, nor light,
Nor certitude, nor peace, nor help for pain;
And we are here as on a darkling plain
Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight,
Where ignorant armies clash by night.”
Matthew Arnold

If I saw you smiling your sweet little smile at me I would return it with a huge warm and welcoming one :)

I have always liked Led Zep's softer tunes. For instance, Tangerine from III...


A dreamer I have been...

I withdrew a book on graffitti /street art and got in trouble with the Principal. I wasnt about to tell her it just encourages tagging and vandalism which we dont want in our community, cos Im sure she would have made a huge fuss about it.
we have youth grafitti clean up crews going round painting over tags and heres this books that glorifies it. and these children are way too young to be wielding spray cans anyway.....
they cant even be sold to anyone under 18

Things will indeed return to normal because the citizens of America will demand it and will tolerate no further unnecessary restrictions of freedom. It is hard to see a smile through a mask. The masks do very little actually in preventing the spread as the virus can enter the body from many places. Hand sanitizer is a good thing though, of course, it is generally unavailable. On a positive note, the toilet paper crisis seems to be abating. The world has billions of people yet we seem to be all alone at times. Sad.
