Our sense of value…

“From early infancy onward we all incorporate into our lives the message we receive concerning our self-worth, or lack of self-worth, and this sense of value is to be found beneath our actions and feelings as a tangled network of self-perception.” –Christina Baldwin

Too funny…

This is just too funny NOT to share! Thanks for this laugh, Lyndon! I’m stealing it immediately!

Detours…

Detours, challenges, and crisis are simply covers for miracles that had no other way of reaching us.

Eagles Concert!

Timothy B. Schmit – “I Don’t Want to Hear Anymore” 

Looking forward to the small venue concert tonight. He has the most amazing voice and writes such beautiful, heartfelt lyrics. “I’ve read the book. I know how this all ends…”

It’s not the first time
… That I’ve had the sense that something’s wrong
But I’m old enough to know
That things don’t always work out like they should
I know you’re tryin’ hard
To break it gently to me, now
But there’s no easy way
To tell it like it is, so baby…

I don’t want to hear any more
You don’t need to tell me it’s over
I’ve been here before

I’ve seen that look before
I know it well; it comes as no surprise
You’ve been avoiding me
But now you want to talk it over
Before you take my hand
And tell me softly in a whisper
There’s no need to explain
I’ve read the book; I know how this all ends

I don’t want to hear any more
You don’t need to tell me it’s over
I’ve been here before

I won’t ask you to stay
I won’t stand in your way
Look me right in the eyes
Let me walk away with my head high

If there’s some other guy
I don’t need to know why

But I don’t want to hear any more
You don’t need to tell me it’s over
I’ve been here before

I won’t ask you to stay
I won’t stand in your way
And I don’t want to hear any more
No, no, baby
I don’t want to hear any more

Tower of Song…

Thanks to my friend Deborah for this…I have been a Leonard Cohen fan for all these many years…

 

“My friends are gone and my hair is grey.
I ache in the places where I used to play.
And I’m crazy for love but I’m not coming on.
I’m just paying my rent every day in the tower of song.”

And the Journey Continues…

Here’s the latest video from the Bard’s Book Signing and Artist’s Reception. It was a such an enjoyable afternoon. Thanks again to everyone for making this a success in every way! And the journey continues…


Thanksgiving Song…

As I begin my Thanksgiving preparations and think about those who will gather round our table this year…I lovingly recall family and friends who gather only in spirit now. I will see their faces, hear their laughter and hold their hands as well…

 

Thanksgiving Song
by Mary Chapin

… Grateful for each hand we hold
Gathered round this table.
From far and near we travel home,
Blessed that we are able.

Grateful for this sheltered place
With light in every window,
Saying “welcome, welcome, share this feast
Come in away from sorrow.”

Father, mother, daughter, son,
Neighbor, friend and friendless;
All together everyone in the gift of loving-kindness.

Grateful for what’s understood,
And all that is forgiven;
We try so hard to be good,
To lead a life worth living.

Father, mother, daughter, son,
Neighbor, friend, and friendless;
All together everyone, let grateful days be endless.

Grateful for each hand we hold
Gathered round this table.

Bards Books was a Success!

I had a great book signing today at Bard’s Books with my artist collaborator and friend Kathryn Henneman! Thanks to everyone who stopped by just to visit and to those of you who bought my books! It was a pleasure to catch up with old friends again. A special thanks to Alana E. Roberts and Carol McDaniels for helping to organize things so nicely!
