Believe In Me

“Too many hearts have been broken, failing to trust what they feel…Trust isn’t something that’s spoken, and love’s never wrong when it’s real” ~Dan Fogelberg

Thank you, Dan, for the many years of love and emotion felt through your music.  I see you flying with the angels~ Peace

The Velvet Voice of James

I haven’t posted music in a while…time to bring it back in, and who better to bring it in with than JT…thank you, James, for carrying me through many waters…the smooth, the rough, and the in-between…the water is certainly wide…

“These feelings won’t go away, they’ve been knocking me sideways, I keep thinking in a moment that time will take them away…these feelings won’t go away”  ~Citizen Cope

We’ve all been there, knocked sideways with an emotional bang.  You’re moving along in life, all seems fine, and then out of nowhere comes this pain so deep it knocks you off your feet.  If you’ve loved and lost, you know this feeling buried deep down in your gut.  You know the sadness and hurt, the anger and frustration.  All emotions must be dealt with and released or the pain will continue to manifest in other areas of your life, causing you to stagnate and repeat the cycle over and over again.  In time, self-love opens the door and you set your Spirit free again.

My daughters attended The Pulse dance convention this past weekend, and what a glorious experience it was! Among many exceptional choreographers, Tyce Diorio choreographed a piece to Citizen Cope’s Sideways.  The feeling and expression he conveyed took the lyrics and music to a whole new level.  Every movement held its own statement, allowing each dancer to reveal their personal release.   When we express our emotions through movement our body and soul tell the story, as our hearts live the tale.  It is an amazingly cathartic and beautiful way to feel every emotion.

May I suggest you click on the link below, close your eyes and FEEL what comes to you through the music.  Move to it, feel it, breathe it, BE it.  I’ve loved this song for some time now but to see it expressed through dance added a whole new dimension.  My heart swelled.  This is my favorite version of Sideways, Citizen Cope with Santana.  Enjoy your flow….


Soul Connection

“A soul connection is a resonance between two people who respond to the essential beauty of each others individual natures, behind their facades, and who connect on this deeper level. This kind of mutual recognition provides the catalyst for a potent alchemy. It is a sacred alliance whose purpose is to help both partners discover and realize their deepest potentials. While a heart connection lets us appreciate those we love just as they are, a soul connection opens up a further dimension — seeing and loving them for who they could be, and for who we could become under their influence. This means recognizing that we both have an important part to play in helping each other become more fully who we are….A soul connection not only inspires us to expand, but also forces us to confront whatever stands in the way of that expansion.”

~John Welwood

This is for all the beautiful souls that have passed in and out of my life.  Some remain and some move through, leaving a mark, never to be forgotten.  For all of you, I give gratitude for the ups, the downs, and all the in-betweens.  The lessons learned, as I continue to climb this path, are blessings given to me by each and every one of you.  In my life…I love you all!

I watched John Mayer perform in concert last night and what an entertainer is he!  Not only is he an amazing poet and guitarist, but the feeling he conveys with his music is undeniable.  John’s CD, “Inside Wants Out”, was self released in 1999.  It’s an acoustic version of many of his pop tunes, but my favorite song by far is “Comfortable”.  A sweet ballad about a past love, maybe gone but certainly not forgotten.  Mixed with fondness of memories past and the connection of  like-spirited personalities.

Below is John performing “Comfortable” live back in 2007.


I Will Always Love You

Remember Whitney Houston?  One of my all time favorite voices, blessed with an innate raw talent.  It’s amazing what addiction can do. Brings you to your knees. “I Will Always Love You” was written by Dolly Parton in 1973 and was brought back to life in 1992 when Whitney opened hearts with it in the film, The Bodyguard. Wishing you joy and love, Whitney…


When God Made Me

These are two of my favorite Neil Young songs.  “Four Strong Winds” & “When God Made Me” …Neil is an artist all unto himself.  Below are the lyrics for “When God Made Me”,  written with truth and compassion for all living in this world.  Wishing you all a peaceful, blessed day…

“When God Made Me”

Was he thinkin’ about my country
Or the color of my skin?
Was he thinkin’ ’bout my religion
And the way I worshipped him?
Did he create just me in his image
Or every living thing?

When God made me
When God made me

Was he planning only for believers
Or for those who just have faith?
Did he envision all the wars
That were fought in his name?
Did he say there was only one way
To be close to him?

When God made me
When God made me

Did he give me the gift of love
To say who I could choose?

When God made me
When God made me

When God made me
When God made me

Did he give me the gift of voice
So some could silence me?
Did he give me the gift of vision
Not knowing what I might see?
Did he give me the gift of compassion
To help my fellow man?

When God made me
When God made me

When God made me
When God made me

I’ve Got to Find My Own

Ever since I posted “Listen” the other day, this song continues to play in my head.  It too is titled “Listen” and is sung by Beyonce with such force you want to stand up and cheer for her conviction.  This lyrical gem is from the movie Dreamgirls.  It is a story of reaching your dream…full of artistic talent, struggles, control, and in the end, sisterhood.  Beyonce belts this one out, and as she finishes, I always catch myself saying, “Take that!”  A woman controlled by her manager/husband who finally stands up for herself and does what she knows is right for her and those she loves…
