    In The Waiting Room For A Truly New World

    The few, among the many, in humanity have always called for the brotherhood and sisterhood of all and for a world of peace, cooperation, and goodwill towards each and everyone. However, the world hardly hears or listens and habits continue on as if nothing has changed. The way of the world, the Great Machine of the World Economy, is churning, turning, grinding and eating up the planet at every moment, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year with no rest ever. Never! The reality of this world has always been, basically, a world of the self-centered, selfish few, who present themselves as people just like you and me, i.e., kind, gentle, caring, concerned and helpful. However, the reality that has predominated over this world, over the many, and will continue to do so, is the opposite. Candidates, for office in high positions of power, have been, are and will be mostly mediocre people. Once again, there will be elections in many places and those selected “leaders” may be the ones that take us towards a collapse in the world economy or war or both, as always. We are at the absolute edge of the cliff…

    This IS A Woman’s World

    TELL THE TRUTH! This is a woman’s world, yes it IS! The very word, the Latin word, mater, which forms the words matter or material, of which the entire physical world is constructed of, is from is the word for mother! That is the meaning of the word mater and it forms these words in English: immaterial, material, materiality, maternal, maternity, matricide, matriculant, matriculate, matrilocal, matrimonial, matrimony, matrix, matron, matter. So, people, this world is TRULY a woman’s world since the feminine nature of the physical world is totally based on matter. Who is it that gives birth to the future generations of all beings and creatures in this world. That is the function of a FEMALE or a WOMAN. Again, truly, this world IS a woman’s world. Men need to stop thinking that only they are IT. They aren’t. Surely, men are important in this world, but, ultimately, it is the woman who has the power of gestation in order to bring forth all future generations. Man makes his contribution to spark the process , for sure, but it is the female, primarily, who has been given the responsibility of birth and then nurturing and educating  man’s offspring. The…

    Now For A Song! The Song of Life As It Is!

    Let’s Face The Music And Dance by composer and lyricist Irving Berlin [1936] -+- 1936 = 2018 Pay attention, observe, listen well There may be trouble ahead But while there’s moonlight and music and love and romance Let’s face the music and dance Before the fiddlers have fled Before they ask us to pay the bill and while we still have the chance Let’s face the music and dance Soon we’ll be without the moon, humming a different tune and then There may be teardrops to shed So while there’s moonlight and music and love and romance Let’s face the music and dance, dance Let’s face the music and dance

    La Vie En Rose!

    After Edith Piaf’s original version, this is the GREATEST version of La Vie En Rose I have ever heard! La Vie En Rose Des yeux qui font baisser les miens Un rire qui se perd sur sa bouche Voilà le portrait sans retouche De l’homme auquel j’appartiens Quand il me prend dans ses bras Il me parle tout bas Je vois la vie en rose Il me dit des mots d’amour Des mots de tous le jours Et ça me fait quelque chose Il est entré dans mon coeur Une part de bonheur Dont je connais la cause C’est lui pour moi Moi pour lui Dans la vie Il me l’a dit, l’a juré pour la vie Et dès que je l’aperçois Alors je sens en moi, mon coeur qui bat When he takes me in his arms And whispers love to me Everything’s lovely It’s him for me and me for him All our lives And it’s so real what I feel This is why Et dès que je l’aperçois Alors je sens en moi, mon coeur qui bat La vie La vie en rose, la vie en rose Ohh, la vie La vie en rose La vie en…

    Tell Me Where

    What would you do to gain access to knowledge prohibited by the few who control everything. What sacrifices would you make, to find the answers to your deeper questions about life? How far would you go? Where would you go? What would you do? If you can’t answer these questions, what are you doing? Are you serious about your life? The film, Yentl, was made before its time. It is a glimpse into the future of possibilities never, ever considered in former times. Now, it is being questioned and examined and new ways of thinking and being are emerging into the light as never before. What changes will we see to the world we know in years ahead? Will humanity even be here in the next century? And beyond? + + +  A Piece Of Sky Tell me where Where is it written What is it I meant to be? That I can’t dare… It all began the day I found.. That from my window I could only see A piece of sky. I stepped outside and looked around. I never dreamed it was so wide Or even half as high. The time had come (Papa, can you hear me?)…

    Twilight

    Haven’t laughed this hard in a long time I better stop now before I start crying Go off to sleep in the sunshine I don’t want to see the day when it’s dying She’s a sight to see She’s good to me I’m already somebody’s baby She’s a pretty thing She knows everything But I’m already somebody’s baby You don’t deserve to be lonely But those drugs you’ve got won’t make you feel better Pretty soon you’ll find it’s the only Little part of your life you’re keeping together I’m nice to you I could make it through But you’re already somebody’s baby I could make you smile If you stayed a while But how long will you stay with me, baby? ~Because your candle burns too bright Well I almost forgot it was twilight Even if I think that you are right Well I’m tired of being down, I got no fight You’re wonderful And it’s beautiful I’m already somebody’s baby And if I went with you I’d disappoint you too Well I’m already somebody’s baby Already somebody’s baby To a musical genius, gone too soon, and, who left so much undone. He will be missed.
