The side effects of working out

I guess a date with the cute check out guy at Ralph's is out of the question as I witness the Tinactin rolling down the check out conveyer belt.

Brilliant words …

Sing, sing at the top at your voice,
Love without fear in your heart.
Yeah and feel, feel like you still have a choice
When we all light up we can scare away the dark

We wish our weekdays away
Spend our weekends in bed
Drink ourselves stupid
And work ourselves dead
Or just because that's what mom and dad said we should do

We should run though the forest
We should swim in the sea
We should laugh, we should cry,
we should love, we should dream
We should stare at the stars and not just at screens
You should hear what I'm saying and know what it means

To sing sing at the top at your voice,
Love without fear in your heart.
Yeah and feel, feel like you still have a choice
When we all light up we can scare away the dark

Yeah we wish we were happier, thinner and fitter,
We wish we weren't liars and losers and quitters
We want something other then just nasty and bitter
We want something real not just hashtags and twitter

It's the meaning of life and it's streamed live on YouTube
But I guess gangnam style will still get more views
We're scared of drowning, flying and shooters
But were all slowing dying in front of computers

So, sing at the top at your voice,
Love without fear in your heart.
Yeah and feel, feel like you still have a choice
When we all light up we can scare away the dark

Mirror mirror on the wall ...

   In reality do we appear to others as we see ourselves in the mirror or as the camera lens see's us?

   Because I have to tell you … I can leave the house rockin' the mirror only to find Jabba the Hutt staring back at me from the tabloids the next morning.

Lazy Sunday



It's Sunday

Time for reflection


Time for family


Time to thank your higher power for all that you have



Have a great Sunday

Peace

Happy birthday Carol

When I was a kid Saturday (and later Sunday) night was CBS night


The Carol Burnett Show
(Yes, I thought Ms. Burnett owned her own network)


My parents would let me stay up and watch her show. I remember having a hard time getting to sleep because I was so hyped up from laughing so hard. What I wouldn't have given to be in the audience asking her a question … "If you could have dinner with anyone, living or dead, who would you choose?"

When my family moved from Oklahoma to Los Angeles in 1978 I was beyond happy. Would I finally get to ask my idol my question? It wasn't to be. Carol (yes, I feel after all these years I can call her Carol) ended her long running TV show in 1978. I was crushed. 

Fast forward to 2005. A friend of mind had the pleasure of working with her in the production "Once upon a Mattress". They screened it at the Writers Guild in Beverly Hills and I was lucky enough to be invited. As my friend was about to introduce me in the lobby of the theater I was over come with such emotion I had to leave the building. I stood outside for what seemed like hours trying to compose myself. I never did. I could not get with in 20 feet of her without turning into a puddle of emotions. 

I  guess some idols will forever be admired from afar.

My Comforter




The world had all gone wrong that day
   And tired and in despair
Discouraged with the ways of life,
   I sank into my chair

A soft caress fell on my check
   My hands were thrust apart.
And two big sympathizing eyes
   Gazed down into my heart.

I had a friend; what cared I now
   For fifty worlds? I knew
One heart was anxious when I grieved -
   My dog's heart, loyal, true.

"God bless him," breathed I soft and low,
   And hugged him close and tight.
One lingering lick upon my ear
   And we were happy - quite.
