It is hump day so it is time to spin some music while you surf the net. This is some nice tunes. Enjoy.
George Harrison: 25 February 1943 – 29 November 2001
I wanted to play some Saturday songs in honour of George Harrison, known as “the Quiet Beatle” of “Fab Four” fame. Today marks what would have been his 74th birthday, were it not for his untimely death in 2001 at the age of 58 due to complications from throat and lung cancer. He also survived an attempt on his life in 1999, when a madman broke into his house and proceeded to stab him multiple times. From Wikipedia:
“On 30 December 1999, Harrison and his wife were attacked at their home, Friar Park. Michael Abram, a 36-year-old fan, broke in and attacked Harrison with a kitchen knife, puncturing a lung and causing head injuries before Olivia Harrison incapacitated the assailant by striking him repeatedly with a fireplace poker and a lamp. Following the attack, Harrison was hospitalised with…

Everybody’s telling me to wait for signs from Rob.
“He’s there, he’s guiding you, his spirit is watching over you, he’ll give you a sign…”
One friend, only a week or two after Rob passed, told me that he hugged her. I wanted to ask her why he would hug her first, and not me, but I didn’t have the nerve.
I shared with friends that a hummingbird came and hovered over Rob’s red impatiens last month. Someone told me it was Rob himself, coming to visit me and cheer me. I said, “Rob was not a hummingbird. He was a hawk, or an eagle. He was not a hummingbird.”
I talk to Rob all the time, but I get no answers. I don’t even get the sense that he’s there listening.
Someone told me to pay more attention to my dreams, that perhaps Rob can only visit me in dreams.
Thursday night I had the most vivid dream ever, but in my dream I was sitting on a couch with Hillary Clinton and asking her why she feels entitled to the White House. I made the mistake of calling her “Mrs. Clinton” and she made very clear to me that I should address her as “Madame Secretary” before telling me that it’s not for me to second guess her motives nor deny her her place in herstory.
Rob was nowhere in sight, in this dream, nor has he been anywhere but in photographs, lately.
Harry Houdini wanted desperately to reach out to his mother’s departed spirit. So much so that he apparently visited each and every so called medium in an effort to have his mother visit earth after she passed. Harry ended up exposing each and every so called medium as a fraud.
I’ve come to the conclusion that once a person is dead, they are really and truly dead.
Perhaps that’s the way they want it.
Perhaps it’s what we should let them have.
Pure quiet, and peace.
As fond as I am of making a short story long, this shall be a relatively brief post for a change.
I’m going to step back from blogging and the blogosphere for the time being. I have some health issues that keep compounding themselves and I am discovering that dealing with them is taking all my energies and efforts. The dialysis is not working as well as hoped and now I’m going through six months of drug therapy to squash a so called pre-cancerous condition.
So, I’m going to float for a while and remove myself from all the sturm and drang that we get caught up in on a daily basis and concentrate on healing.
I’ll miss you guys a lot more than you’ll miss me, so I probably won’t be able to resist a peek now and then when I have a good day.
Hopefully, I’ll be back in the Spring, meaner than before.
Keep yer fingers crossed for me.
From the Youtube description…
Thousand Hand Guan Yin was a dance created by Chinese choreographer Zhang Jigang. This dance was performed by 63 deaf dancers of China Disabled People’s Performing Art Troupe. Because they could not hear the music, there were 6 directors dressed in white helping them to synchronize with the music.
I feel like singing this morning.
Or, possibly this…
And there’s always this…
