Music can save your soul

I tried. God knows how much I tried. I took lessons. Private lessons. Banjo, Guitar. Piano. The music died on me.

But, I can still appreciate a piece of good music, teachers and anecdotes.

My nephew is a K-9 music teacher.  I tease him a lot lately since schools are closed. Send him plenty of cartoons.

Music Covid

Yes. He still has to work. From home. Thank goodness his students can afford a computer. Music must go on.

There is something about music that will keep us being grateful and appreciative. His students, for sure, will let him know.

Music Thank you.

As for me, I love this song. A ballad. Music with meaning.

Psychiatric Help

And the very best thing in this journey of losing my mind is that God stayed by my side and I am forever grateful for that. Furthermore, my sense of humor returned.

Let me know how that feels for you.

Wake up, you are in heaven.

I watched the DVD last night “Heaven is real”.  It’s a story of a four-year old boy who went to heaven. No, he did not die. It was not a near-death experience.

It happened during his operation of his appendices. During the operation, his soul floated, saw what was happening to him and to his parent.

He ended in a church, a choir of Angels where singing to him. Being a child, he wanted them to sing his favourite song.

Can you sing  “We Will Rock You?

(Okay, imagine the Angels are playing rock and roll in heaven, that is a big disgrace.) The Angels giggled with their Angelic giggles.

Back to reality, as far as sleep is concern, heaven or here in my sanctuary: I say…..

Missing the fun – the only true tragedy.

More than just a character, Holy Molé is a cartoon that represents the place where higher aspirations of existence intertwine with the practicality of everyday living. The two main characters represent this dichotomy and, through their friendship, they find a balance that is essential and love that is enduring. The cartoon is not intended to be religious; rather it represents the archetypical seeker in society striving for meaning in an often-complex world.

Hole Mole  reminds us not to take the drama too seriously, or else we may miss the fun – the only true tragedy.

Dressing up according to Lucy.

When a little girl plays dress up, she means business.  She can’t wait to grow up and will adorn herself using her Mother’s accessories including the Boa feather and hat. Doesn’t she look adorable?
lucy 1There is no way she will change her outfit with all the cajoling and threats from her Mother. Besides, she is smarter than her.

As a matter of fact

really good

In our reception area at work, there is a bowl of goodies: candies and chocolates.  I must admit every time I walked by, I took one or two chocolates.  How many times did I do that in a day? A lot!  Every time, I went to the loo, took a break, or just made an excuse to pass by the reception.  One too many.

This month, I did well.  Yup, proud to say. I manage not to dip my little hand in the bowl of chocolates and candies at the reception area for the whole month.

The power of self-control is so dull!  Thank goodness the month of chocolates is coming up, Valentine’s day.

In the meantime, wishing you Gong Hay Fat Choy.

What matters.

When we see a story in the news repeatedly, we have a tendency to think it must be important. Thinking something is important often means we feel we should do something about it.  

In the whole scheme of things, what’s really worth considering the most is the New Yorker cartoons.

Thanksgiving Leftovers

By now, thanksgiving leftovers are either eaten, made into soup or stored in the freezer.  Relatives or friends that stayed over have returned to their own homes.  And some would linger around.

What do we do with this one?
