you make my heart sing.....

i need to learn to make better notes! i'm always reading or hearing quotes or thoughts that i find moving or brilliant, and i try to jot them down for future reference. i'm pretty good about also making a note of where i heard or read it, or who said or wrote it. in the case of the following quote, tho, i didn't write down where it came from, so i apologize to the author for not giving credit where credit is due:

i want someone to make me feel like music!

how lovely is that?? explains exactly what i'm looking for, and better still......what i NEED. not sure i'll ever find it, but at least i know what i have to have, so if i ever DO meet that man....i'll know him without doubt or question! :)

peace, love and friends!

once precious friends come thru with wonderful surprises on the days i seem to need them the most!! i got the pictured woodstock patch ( cell camera sucks, but you get the idea) in the mail today from a dear pal with a sticky note attached that said "to my favorite hippie!" made my day!!! thanks R. loves ya!!!

and my horoscope for today:

you should take time to smell the roses. your tender heart my lean toward peace and quiet.

not much into astrology, but i liked that, and thought i'd add it in here for grins and giggles! it's a lovely message and fitting.

..."We were transported by that music in an ethereal way that later we would try to explain and couldn't. But it was the first time I really felt what I had long understood: that something could be extremely beautiful and intensely painful at the same time."

from THE SWAN HOUSE by Elizabeth Musser

if that sentence doesn't explain the way i feel about music, then *nothing* does......
now that i think about explains the way i feel about a LOT of things.

thanks ms. musser, for your beautiful book.

and it begins.................again!

well, the reprieve from the evil-i-need-to-launder-my-karma-jerk was short lived and the yahoo group is no longer showing up in groups when one does a search for gerry. so.....the gloves are going back on, and i guess this time i need to channel my inner spartan and get ready to get medieval on somebody. sigh. it's too hot for this.............
Time is truly wastin'
There's no guarantee
Smile's in the makin'
You gotta fight the powers that be
I don't understand it
People wanna see, ya
Those that got the answers
Red tape in the way
I could take you in easy
That's just half the fun, oh boy
Seeking satisfaction
Keeps me on the run
I can't play my music
They say my music's too loud
I kept talkin about it
I got the big run around
When I rolled with the punches
I got knocked on the ground
With all this bullshit going down
Time is truly wastin'
There's no guarantee
Smile's in the makin'
You gotta fight the powers that be
If you & I can - we got the power
Fight it, got the power fight, baby
Fight it, fight the power

g'nite mrs slocum!

one of my favorite britcoms is "are you being served?" (thanks PBS for turning me on to this many, many moons ago!) mollie sugden, who plays the brilliantly cheeky mrs. slocum passed away today, and i'm just heartbroken. what a hilariously funny actress. not many have come close to lucille ball in my eyes, but dear mollie did. heaven will be a much better place today because mollie has arrived. rest in peace, dear lady, and thanks for all the laughs! and i am unanimous in that! :)

another little note: saturday night when we went to see my brother in "1776" we were on the elevator going up to the 3rd floor where the auditorium was, and a young man in the back of the elevator said : 2nd floor perfumery, stationary and leather goods, wigs and haberdashery. i turned around and commented on his "AYBS" reference and he was so pleased.........didn't think anyone would "get it!" he didn't know he was in a car full of fans of the show!!!! small world, i guess.......
