I imagine we all think about it. I mean, it is an inevitability of life. But for some reason humans who possess the gifts of reflection and understanding, never want to talk about it. Yet there we are the moment we are born. And here we are now, descending further and further towards death.
My view from here shows a peaceful world can exist when we rise above the cruelty of man.
Be the change. United we stand. #Honor911
You know when you think those happy thoughts about someone that make you smile to yourself but you never tell them? Tell them. You may make them smile, too.
For the writer, it seems, nothing is more satisfying than painting life’s beauty with words. Yet words, however eloquent, never seem to portray the full landscape… I imagine, that’s where the colours of music come in.
As a volunteer for Grace Hospice, I sang at a memory care unit today at Vickery Towers Assisted Living (Dallas, TX) and had so much fun with everyone! I started out singing my originals on guitar then we all began free-styling together. We went into classics like “The Sound of Music” “Blue Moon” “Part of Your World” ~ Disney songs and the like. We seriously just jammed out to whatever we could think of and we had a blast! Singing with these guys reminded me of fun times with family. It also reminded me that life doesn’t have to be as complicated as we all make it, you know. Sometimes all you need is a guitar and some friends… and life is good. (: ♥
Last night a little girl (not pictured) told me she wanted to be a singer but her family didn’t have any money. If your children want to sing, encourage them beyond the glitz and glamour: Let them sing for friends who are having a bad day, for the homeless and the elderly. Then they’ll understand what it’s really like to be a singer; to make a difference in someone’s life just by sharing their voice.
I have a family member who is learning disabled and has been bullied his whole life. There’s a helplessness that comes over you when loved ones who are prone to being bullied have to go out into the real world because people can be so cruel and impatient and you can’t protect them from everyone. But there is something that you can do. You, yourself, can be kind to others. You can culture your family and friends, teach them to celebrate our differences rather than condemn them. You can extend love to all people. Because a society which produces bullies is a society where people are not being loved but hurt so they grow to hurt others. Heal our world. Love each other.

I’ve adored Apple since I was little and ever since I was old enough to appreciate the man behind the design he’s had a special place in my heart. Steve’s legacy is that of man and invention not only externally exquisite but internally elegant and transformative, inspiring us all. This is so sad. I already miss him terribly.
“I was worth over a million when I was 23, and over 10 million when I was 24, and over 100 million when I was 25, and it wasn’t that important because I never did it for the money.”
