This Little Lady

I met a older lady today that displayed a most entitled spirit. I’m not judging her. It was what it was. One thing after another, no lie, I left before it was over so I can’t say how it ended. Things could very well still be going on, I kid you not. The law had been broken and she actually asked and expected several others to participate. No one would and this upset her. Her demeanor changed for the worse. She failed to acknowledge all of the help she had received from several. It reminded me of the scene from The Color Purple when ‘this little lady’ drove (with no problem) Oprah’s character to spend time with her family and no sooner than Oprah got into the house, greeted her family and sat down to eat, she forgot how to drive and insisted that Oprah get back in the car with her to go back to wherever it was from which they came … then drove off like she was in a Nascar race. ‘This little lady’ started off deceptive, pushed us all until we all said ‘no’, then her true colors began to wave … like a red flag.

DeBarge

W H Y … was he all throughout my dreams last night? Before my own few encounters with him there was a bit of infatuation on my part. What had been doin’ it for me was his music. It had gotten me safely through one of the most turbulent times in my life … held me down solid for a few good years. I’d never experienced anything like it nor will I forget it. Then some things changed. I changed with them. Everything about the whole thing changed. No longer could I listen with the same calm & security. I’d tried several times over the years past. Unable, I discarded it all. Since parting ways with him he’s managed to slip into my dreams two or three times … the first time I talked & he was a good listener with pertinent words of his own for me … but each time since not to settle matters but to be seen. I see you Chico … love don’t live here anymore.

Morning After

Yesterday was quite a day! It began with the most pleasant of surprises! All day long was filled with congratulatory smiles hugs tears of happiness reminders of what we’d done! A long day of travel. To our first assignment together. Surrounded by our closest friends & new ones too made it an easy day. Upon arrival a couple of minor adjustments needed to be made! BOOM! All settled in it was only right/a good thing to mingle & so much fun was had! We love our friends & what a way for an already beautiful day to come to a close. When the time came to rest that we did for the morning after we were up and at it! Looking forward to the day of satisfying work … & coming together after our work was done.
