A Happy little mix for Saturday. X
I mean come on these are spectacular. Real masters at their craft.
Why do people bother?
Don’t they know, the truth will out. Always.
Not the small white lies told by pure of heart. But the big and general scumbagery, done as easily as breathing In and out for some, and in a few, as often too.
It used to drive me absolutely crazy. My justiceometer fit to burst. Feeling like somehow it was my place to right that wrong, protect that innocent, put the bully in their place, quite that cowpaterey
Now I marvel at their ingenious machievelianesque machinations.
Admire their stupendous skills of spin.
Relish in the amusement of all they try.
I still fucking hate it, don’t get me wrong.
But now I realise, it is not my place to judge any of it, ever. It’s not up to me how they behave.
Not my job, as they say in Addlerian Phsycology.
My job is me and i barely feel able to steer that ship at times.
So the thought that I could ever have control over anothers feelings or take on responsibility for someone else’s behaviour, is a falasy
So now instead now I smile and let every tiny cadence of cunning wash right over me in amusement.
Because it is not my place to fight, nor worry, nor seek justice.
The Karma Police will do fine all by itself. Just as it has always done without me, since the beginning of time.
So instead I say smile.
I even had to stop my self laughing out loud the other day, by burying my face ìn my poncho,because it had become so ridiculous. All quite recently new to me, but left me feeling great instead of depleted, which has to be an improvement surely.
So to quote the mighty penguins of Madagascar….
“Just smile and wave boys. Smile and wave.“
Peace, Love and Light you Lovely Lot.
Life lesson 2, Keep going, This too will pass.
For all those going through hard times, keep going. Just remember, this too shall pass.
Like dark clouds in the sky, they won’t be there for ever.
Brighter skies will come, even if it takes a while, I promise.
Nothing stays the same.
Change is ironically perhaps life’s one true constant.
Head up, Keep strong, kind and most importantly keep love in your heart. Especially for yourself.
You are not alone.
Keep the faith, Because there is such beauty and blessings all around even in the dark corners of disasters.
Love and Light to all of you beautiful lot.
Here is a double length playlist to say thank you for all your kind comments, patience and amazing response. I am always touched and thrilled to hear from you.
Have a friggin awesome day, even if you have to be the one to make it so come hell or high water.
Try and give them all a go, even the ones that may not sound like “your kinda thang”
Or in fact those that I don’t even have a clue what they are about. All you have to do is give them a chance and then feel it.
Feel what I felt.
The glorious, Ya Sidi, with the most exquisite building crescendo of passion, that so does it for me.
Anyone speak Arabic? I would love to know what she is singing about with all that heart.
Also the divine emotion of DeVotchKa, I am so happy to have just found.
Starting slow and sleek, but rising from the ashes on a high with some of my favourite uplifting songs that always seem to works on me.
Plus everything in between in a right good old mix today.
Enjoy the journey. X
The shapes they create are just beautiful.
For me this is the only way animals should be.
No Cages, no Zoos, no Sea parks, just NO !
I don’t really know how they are still going?
Wildlife sanctuaries, yes great. Help them, heal them, yes that’s fantastic, I am completely on board.
But to keep them in cages, or even as exotic pets, locked up, swimming or pacing around the same small enclosure for life ? Unable to fly away, just used for our occasional viewing pleasure?
That’s not right.
Just no, it feels wrong.
No dolphin or whale should be captured and kept, no bird caged or grounded for our amusement, or in our names. Not in mine, please anyway.
What are we victorians? Haven’t we moved on by now?
For anyone who has had the absolute honour of seeing these kind of animals in nature, where they should be, knows that they are not the same animals that you see in captivity. With their eyes so wild, bright and alive. It is absolutely thrilling and a blessing.
I can barely bring myself to look at their caged brothers and sisters, already devoid of life, hope and vitality, with a sense that they are already dead and broken inside.
But in the wild…
It is one of the greatest joys of life. To see them there is an experience you never forget and which has changed me for the better every time.
I once had the luck and privilege to have a whole herd of these gorgeous giraffes, in whole families running along with us for maybe half an hour.
For some reason I had not ever pictured them in big groups or even running weirdly. ?
All I can say is, It was utterly incredible.
Happy, living, doing their thing, free and really alive.
As they should be.
