The gators there are two of them one at each entrance to the club. Unless you fall off the ramp or walkway you’ll be safe.. I loved the animation and design of the swamp around this nightclub. They are a really friendly bunch that work there, and the patrons of the club appreciate not only the music played by the talented DJs the ambiance is such, you have only to enjoy yourself.

Rocking the Blues -My friend Kira loved the Blues, she built a club so all her friends could share in her passion for the blues.  DJs from all platforms came to share their tunes, and keep us rocking to the many genres of Blues that are played through-out this Universe of ours.  Didn’t matter who you were/are, if you loved the blues, shared in the camaraderie of the Blues Tribe, you were welcome.

I have been away and didn’t know she had taken ill again.  A friend wrote me last night, we will have a memorial played out over the week-end so that all of us that loved her can manage to get in.  All the DJ’s will have a time slot so that you can share in what Kira loved best.. listen to the blues and share and be with friends.

This woman was a rock for me over the many years she has een in my life. Her generosity and loving spirit will always be with me.  Rest in Peace my friend, you were an example to all of us,  This is not farewell, it is … till soon

Today, day 2, PL calendar is    Live each Day filled with hope(this was Kira’s mantra and motto)

Even in situations when you feel trapped with no way out, face every challenge with purpose and enthusiasm and you will always a find a way.

‘Be true to your work, your word and your friend’.  Henry David Thoreau

Mess of blues

Forgive me, I have had this song on my mind for days.. DJ Phoenix from Nova Scotia played it during his set, and it stuck.

If Blues isn’t your thing I understand if you pass this post on by. =^_^= I am indulging my need to “feel” the music that “speaks” to me.

All this because I got to hear Mess O’ Blues again tonight, in fact twice.  It was like going back for that second piece of fresh baked pumpkin pie with lots of whipped cream.

Tomorrow it could be country blues, or no music at all.  the beauty of enjoying every minute of the day, is that tomorrow will be brand new.  I will wake up eager to see what the Universe will introduce my way.

Music can unlock the doors into chambers of yesterday, or through portals into a totally new dimension of thought.

We move off the treadmill into energies and adventures that will expand our horizons.

snowflakes fall

8f445e04584ca2d58f1f27836c4e93f9

look up at the silent moon, nowhere does it shine with more light

then when it is shining down on you

the crystal clear water runs merrily along, unaware of your plight

cool liquid ripples, swirl and babble totally caught up in their journey

while you play and sing the  heart broken blues

the bass guitar keeps time while the saxophone plays a mournful sound

and all you know is that your heart is broken in two

055e80e502b2e864de5b6868fb707fe5

don’t despair, let the moonlight bathe you in its soothing light

stop, listen to the natural melodies of the creek as it makes its way

to its destination around and down the bend

let your emotions be drawn to the falling snowflakes as they spirit them away

soon you will know only the night

and the joy of anticipation for the delights

waiting just around the corner,

snowflakes are little gems from heaven,  they are gentle reminders of the wonders and  many expressions of God.

snowflakes fall so we can actually see and enjoy, the purity of change

even if it is just for a moment, they will gather and present you with a brand new world.

you, me, and the world we are in, are ONE…..

enjoy the snowflakes when they fall……

Love is another word for God,  snowflakes with their unique designs

show us once and for all that we will all appear and then disappear

it is just a matter of time…

History

d6ce61b6791bc80f54173090d33f21e3

 

A car that originally belonged to Al Capone, became the first presidential armored car.  (Franklin Roosevelt).first bikini   1946

1946 the first bikini introduced by French engineer Louis Reard and fashion designer Jacques Heim, in Paris, France.  The name of the swimsuit “bikini” was taking from the Bikini Atoll, one of a series of islands in the South Pacific, where testing of the new atomic bomb was occurring.

1914 Honus Wagner, original Flying Dutchman

Honus Wagner became the first professional baseball player to get 3000 career hits (1914)  Wagner was the original “flying Dutchman”

Godmother of Rock and roll, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, guitarist,singer,songwriter, she was the first artist to chart with spiritual recordings due to her signature blend of gospel with secular rhythms.  she was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2007. (pbs.org)

History is what designed today, our acceptance  and appreciation for what was, will help balance how we progress in handling the challenges of living in the world we are in right now.  Reflect on what was considered then, to be very modern, or the norm, and the adversity and struggles of our ancestors….  In 24 hours, today will be history.

Happiness is Contagious

old

How often have you driven by such a scene and wondered, what it was like when the sounds of laughter echoed through the halls. The steps covered with layer of leaves, that lead up to the house remind me of the area on the front lawn where we had similar steps that led from the top of the lawn down to a second lot.  We were lucky we had a lot of area to play in.  Even though just across the street up  two houses was a playground, where in summer we ran around and used the swings and expanse of field to play ball, and in the winter, we watched hockey almost every night.  Those wanting just to skate had the side of the rink, and the   boys playing hockey used the other end of the rink and the inside.  Certain nights were  just for hockey practice, and other nights it was family night.  We all knew winter was on its way when we saw the rink boards go up.

rink boards

There was no social media,  you were outside with your friends, enjoying whatever activity was happening.   When old enough, we got to walk down to the juke joints, where we could have malts, egg rolls, fries and dogs while we gathered to “catch up” and dance. Most corner hang outs if there was a juke box had a small dance floor.  On week-ends, we often had local bands.  Every table (booth) had a small juke box.  In the summer we roller skated (not like the roller blading of today) We waltzed, two stepped and jived to organ music, in my case, the musician sat in an enclosure in the middle of the rink.  The last hour, hour and half was for the older skaters, kids under a certain age had to leave, so we could couple dance.  Good night sweetheart was always the last song played.

Oh what memories.  I loved my roller skates, even flew down to Santa Monica, California to skate along the board walk.

WOW a trip down memory lane.  I was happy, happy, happy when I started to write and now I’m even happier.  Happiness is a state of mind and I truly enjoy being in this state.  “How can you say you are mostly always happy,” I’ve been asked this many times.  Its easy,when you like being happy this is your go to state of being.  Work is not a drain when you love what you are doing.  Love is good when you are happy to be IN love.  If you are going to do something, do it joyfully, enjoy it.

“I’m sick I don’t feel well, what is there to be happy about.”  hmmm easy answer, what is the alternative.  AND, what are you calling sick? I can be a big baby myself when I am in the throes of a knock down and dirty battle with a flu bug.  I accept it. Drown in it if I must, but I always know that it is a passing event.   I choose to be a grumbler or to be happy.  Guess what, when we are happy, we are more apt to draw others closer to us then when we are being negative.

 

 

 

 

 

Intuition – Awareness

COPD  3

Good Morning Everyone….

For days I have been grappling with my own awareness of a disease called COPD.-  As a member of the ministry I see and speak with a lot of different people from all walks of life.  As a Health Care Professional, I am faced with a lot of anxiety and stress issues over one form of illness or another.  Recently I have had to brush up on my “knowledge” of just what COPD is.  I use the term, I hear the acronym  I even use it.  BUT, not that long ago when asked exactly what the full wording was , I drew a blank.  COPD    Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. 

COPD 4

I have no excuse for not remembering, over the year I have met enough people who live with and manage this challenge.  Being retired, the occassions are less,  Unless we are face to face withe the disease, or have someone in our immediate circle suffering with the disease, it fades into the background.  In the Church of Perfect Liberty, PL ministers are set up to offer personal guidance that respond to problems in our daily lives.  Through consultations you receive personal guidance tailored to your individual character and situation.  Each of us has our own unique personality, lifestyle and challenges, therefore, it is different how each of us will practice the true way, or seek happiness.

COPD 5

If you want more on COPD you can search on Google, there is a ton of information on the disease out there, most importantly IF you think you have any  symptoms of COPD, talk about it with your doctor.  Don’t delay, there is no  known cure, but it can be managed.  Intuition awareness of our own bodies, how we feel, the personal challenges, they are real, we need to speak out, share, and work with health care professionals to overcome the frustrations of dealing with challenges on our own.  Let family know, and friends, so they can share the challenge with you.  Sometimes life becomes restrictive, redirect your energy, find other ways to occupy your time that are as rewarding and fun as your other pastimes were.  Value your intuition.

Music brought COPD back into my life.  A performer whose daily life with COPD has given him the strength and dedication to share music with his friends and followers.  I hear how the disease is affecting  him when he speaks, it isn’t easy for him, yet the music he brings to the world with his genius for pulling together various artists and sounds into a symphony of good vibrations is awesome.  I have no idea what personal pain and challenges he deals with on a daily basis, but I do know his positive energy, it comes out during his sets, he weaves a spell of love through everyone who attends his shows.  This doesn’t happen .. just because… it happens because the man has connected with God, his body gives him “grief” but his soul is flying high with  a Divine love that he wants to share with the world.  To hear and appreciate his artist creations, you can contact his partner  Maryrosella (Butterflyrose) for his schedule inworld, Or for that matter  DJ Sky himself (SkyRider Sicling)

For those of you interested in Gospel, DJ Sky plays gospel for an hour on Sundays, from 11- noon SL time. (Pacific Time)  You want Blues, you want Gospel DJ Sky will serve it up to you big time.

Stroll gently through your day, breathe in the fresh air, and drink in the sweetness of life, no matter the challenges.  Love is all around us. Smile and give the love back twofold.         Oyashikiri
