Vote for Skylar!

Remember the courageous and passionate young lady in my past entry who entered a local fashion designer contest ala Project Runway?  Below is her prom gown entry. I think it is fresh and funky! Please vote for her if you could at:  Life | The Pensacola News Journal



The Impossible Dream

(Man of La Mancha Soundtrack) 

To dream ... the impossible dream ...
To fight ... the unbeatable foe ...
To bear ... with unbearable sorrow ...
To run ... where the brave dare not go ...
To right ... the unrightable wrong ...
To love ... pure and chaste from afar ...
To try ... when your arms are too weary ...
To reach ... the unreachable star ...

This is my quest, to follow that star ...
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far ...
To fight for the right, without question or pause ...
To be willing to march into Hell, for a Heavenly cause ...

And I know if I'll only be true, to this glorious quest,
That my heart will lie, will lie peaceful and calm,
when I'm laid to my rest ...
And the world will be better for this:
That one man, scorned and covered with scars,
Still strove, with his last ounce of courage,
To reach ... the unreachable star ...

Unconditional Love

"You were created to be completely loved and to be completely lovable for your whole life."
Deepak Chopra
                                                                                             Klimt- Mother & Child

Once there was a giving tree who loved a little boy.
And everyday the boy would come to play
Swinging from the branches, sleeping in the shade
Laughing all the summer’s hours away.
And so they love,
Oh, the tree was happy.
Oh, the tree was glad.

But soon the boy grew older and one day he came and said,
"Can you give me some money, tree, to buy something I’ve found?"
"I have no money," said the tree, "Just apples, twigs and leaves."
"But you can take my apples, boy, and sell them in the town."
And so he did and
Oh, the tree was happy.
Oh, the tree was glad.

But soon again the boy came back and he said to the tree,
"I’m now a man and I must have a house that’s all my home."
"I can’t give you a house" he said, "The forest is my house."
"But you may cut my branches off and build yourself a home"
And so he did.
Oh, the tree was happy.
Oh, the tree was glad.

And time went by and the boy came back with sadness in his eyes.
"My life has turned so cold," he says, "and I need sunny days."
"I’ve nothing but my trunk," he says, "But you can cut it down
And build yourself a boat and sail away."
And so he did and
Oh, the tree was happy.
Oh, the tree was glad.

And after years the boy came back, both of them were old.
"I really cannot help you if you ask for another gift."
"I’m nothing but an old stump now. I’m sorry but I’ve nothing more to give"
"I do not need very much now, just a quiet place to rest,"
The boy, he whispered, with a weary smile.
"Well", said the tree, "An old stump is still good for that."
"Come, boy", he said, "Sit down, sit down and rest a while."
And so he did and
Oh, the tree was happy.
Oh, the tree was glad.

Just Blabbing Away

Bummer. Hubby and I were suppose to rock at the Aerosmith's and Cheap Trick's concert last night but it was cancelled. It was a conspiracy to deprive old geezers of a rocking good time. Oh well...  



Yay Factor. The posters are out for the Huckleberry Finn's performing arts show .   My son is in it and I am helping out with props painting and design.


Rising Star. Watch out for this young lady. She is my son's friend and his band's new bassist. She is the youngest entrant of Project Prom, a local clothing designer contest patterned after Bravo's Project Runway. Read more about her here


                 Have a great weekend!
