Earth Hour Sponsored by ERIC!!

 A young friend of mine in Rodney, Ontario is encouraging me and ALL MY FRIENDS to turn off the lights for an hour.  I am using my site here to encourage all readers to share this time ‘in the dark’ with me the night of Saturday, March 29.  ALL LIGHTS AND ELECTRICITY OFF!  Can we do this together?  I KNOW WE CAN!  Congratulations Eric on your good wishes for the world! 

Easter

This is a beautiful time of year!  My poppies have actually sent early shoots up from the earth and so there is great promise of springtime and joyful times!  This year there will be a university graduation in our household, a high school graduation AND a wedding!  Spring offers so much in the way of family and true friends, shared experiences and love.
 
While attending Easter Vigil last night, I had the opportunity to review my life, my spirituality and my hopes.  I was thinking about my Laurie-dog too!  :0)  He’s in his golden years and his life has become so different…the years of bounding through the rose bushes at the river bottom, chasing pheasants, are now gone.  A few nights ago, I lifted him out of bed to get a drink of water and then lifted him back up for the remainder of the night.  My dearest friends would do the same for me if I needed… they would offer me agape love.  They are here in my life to be helpers and I am here to be the same.  When I help Lawrence, the sun shines and I am filled with springtime!  In the human heart, we have the capacity to love like this.
 
 

The Arctic Ice Is Melting SO LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE!

"Oh"

The world is blowing up
The world is caving in
The world has lost her way again
But you are here with me
But you are here with me
Makes it ok

I hear you still talk to me
As if you’re sitting in that dusty chair
Makes the hours easier to bare
I know despite the years alone
I’ll always listen to you sing your sweet song
And if it’s all the same to you

I love you oh so well
Like a kid loves candy and fresh snow
I love you oh so well
Enough to fill up heaven overflow and fill hell
Love you oh so well

And it’s cold and darkness falls
It’s as if you’re in the next room so alive
I could swear I hear you singing to me

I love you oh so well
Like a kid loves candy and fresh snow
I love you oh so well
Enough to fill up heaven overflow and fill hell
Love you oh so well

The world is blowing up
The world is caving in
The world has lost her way again
But you are here with me
But you are here with me
Makes it ok
Oh girl you are singing to me still
Like a kid loves candy and fresh snow
I love you oh so well
Enough to fill up heaven overflow and fill hell
Love you oh so well
 

Jeff Healey

It is sad news that musician, Jeff Healey, has passed away.  I enjoyed him just the summer before last at the Calgary Folk Festival.  Overcoming so many odds in his life, he amazed me with his abilities to play lead guitar in such a way that it seemed to be crying out with a powerful voice.  May you rest in peace,Jeff, and know that your music has impacted me.
