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.

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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
Having attended at blues concert the other night,my mind is still tripping through the various emotions and feelings that played through the night. The DJ had a tremendous knowledge of the music he played and he knew how to blend and knit the sounds so smoothly that you were drawn in almost immediately to his web. The DJ was one, SkyRider Sicling he plays nothing but the blues, down home southern blues. His partner is Butterflyrose, (owner of Sweet Magnolias)together they bring the house down. I will be reporting more on them at a later time.
What DJ Sky brought to me, were sound vibrations, that vibrated and sang through me like a massage that started inside and worked its way through out my body,( as the song goes), to higher and higher planes of personal ecstacy. If you are a music lover, what ever style you connect with, you know what I mean. This DJ has a talent for weaving a spell with his selections. that is an art form. Many other’s have a talent with music and can put together a good play list, This is not what this DJ does, he knows his music so well, that he can actually work the songs into a total experience that encapsulate you in his web. Compare the difference of going to the movies, and going to an Imax theatre.
His music may not be your style, but you appreciate the blues in anyway shape or form, you owe it to yourself to hear this man’s performances. I am told he does a gospel hour on Sundays, I have yet to attend or hear what he does with Gospel, but you can believe me when I say, as soon as I can get to one of his Gospel presentations, I’ll be there.
In life, we all face difficulties / challenges, and how we deal with them always involves choices. Sometimes we make good choices, and other times, we don’t quiet hit the mark. I’ve learned that if I am faced with a choice, its because I have a lesson to learn. Whatever that lesson is, it is mine, I own it. When you own the choices you make in life, when you look at problems as opportunities for growth.You have no regrets… life is good. Another door opens.
Blessings everyone! happy start to the week-end. Oyashikiri
