HaPpY New Year!

time to post this again!














DESIDERATA ~ Max Ehrmann 1927

hay babies...i have recently moved, and i'm still unpacking...i have all of my media out, and found my vynal (sp?) of "hair"... in it was the following: (i love that inspirational stuff!)
p.s. i saw "hair" with my high school boyfriend in cincinnati when they came to town ...i forgot to bring my binoculars, but from far away, i think i saw donna summer naked! ... how cool is that?

DESIDERATA

Go placidly amid the noise & haste, & remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly & clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story. * Avoid loud and aggresive persons, they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. * Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Excerise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and eveywhere life is full of heroism. * Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity & disenchantenment it is perennial as the grass. * Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. * You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. * Therefore, be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labours & aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul. * With all it's sham, drudgery & broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be careful. Strive to be happy.** ... yeah, baby!....love,c

Stuff about the Govt Shutdown

Hello, Babies ..
       just wanted to put in My 2cents 'cause "if you don't put in Your 2cents, how can you expect CHANGE?" .. i hadda do some research today, cause i don't 'member alot .. there have been 17 government shut downs since 1977 (didn't know That) 
i hadda Gummit Job ~ clerical for IRS 1988~2008 in Massachusetts, last 2 years paying IRS employees .. the last government shut-down was 17 years ago in 1995 whilst i was working there .. it lasted 21 days, longest Ever .. Bill Clinton was (D) pres  and (R)epublicans shut it down (did Not research why, don't care) .. Clinton's gang had the economy going well, (i remember some kinda score board going up to show deficit #s going down) ... i was non-essential since employees were not being paid, so was on furlough the whole time .. it all worked out in the end, errbody got back-pay, and i didn't have to apply for unemployment. .. SOooo, i guess it will all work out. .. i wonder, though WHAT THE HELL the REPUBLICANS are thinking about their "power" to give them that size BALLS? i also wonder if there was a shut-down ever fueled by Democrats?  .. and Here's a weird side note i got from research ...
in 1995 during the shut-down, there were very few interns working at the white house .. one day, 1nna those few brought in some pizza to share with the prez ~ prez and intern dined and shared a few yucks .. turns out, intern was ms Monica .. ♫ imbrace me, my sweet impeachable you♫ .. i don't think we have to worry bout that with MY OBAMA! .. and , Lastly, why doesn't congress shut Itself down with no pay when this happens?
Wed, Sep 25th, 2013 4:26 PM EDT

 Thanks for checkin in.....it's been a Long time since i wrote...with a Facebook page, i didn't feel a need..But something Important has happened, and i feel i must write now, if only just for me... i have lost my Love, Johnnie Wayne Laswell to a heart attack, April 29 ...a writer of songs and essays, a musician on guitar and keyboard, a singer and performer, a Mighty and Spiritual Man....he touched So Many lives on this earth...he suffered his heart attack directly after a gig with just 1 of the groups he played with.....he went back to school late in life to learn audio visual production, graduated (just recently) always on the dean's list and immediately put that knowledge to use along with playing music again, more than he had in years...i believe he was the happiest he's Ever been when he passed...he worked on Himself through life until he achieved near perfection..i can't imagine why he loved me...just SO Grateful that he Did, grateful for having his last few years with him, and hope i am 1nna the things that kept those years happy ♥ http://www.myspace.com/jwlaswellband

CRYING FOR RIHANNA

so, today, i saw the (leaked) picture of abused rihanna....i was ok until i saw the picture...you know, my babies that this is learned behavior....we learn how to treat people, how to be treated from what we see growing up...i don't have
children of my own, but i grew up with a little stuff...i'm still trying to get past that, which doesn't happen always, ... i tend to still get drawn to wrong...not always, just sometimes....(familiarity)...when i had opportunity to guide young ones, i tried to make sure that the babies knew the difference so that the chain of abuse could be stopped...maybe i made a difference, maybe not....i just want to say to all you mommies and daddies out there to be careful what you show the babies,
'cause the beat goes on....WEAREALL1LOVE,c
 P.S. all of my manly men friends...do you feel like you need to get your woman under control? .... that's what i'm bloggin' about, willises!

Merry, Happy Season, Errrrrrrrbody!

here's what's happenin' with me....i finally have my TVs hooked up! ....was so distressed over not having passed a digital test last week...i told y'all my money's funny, so i'm not going for the cable or satelite...i've got my converter boxes and antennae hooked up for the "one time fee" deal ... i can't afford cable now, and i KNOW it's going up soon, if not already...my 'puter online bill just went up 5 bucks...this has nothing to do with my "big brother" theory which has me thinking that we're all being monitored now by "them" as far as what we watch on the tv...yes my babies, we're ALL a bunch of neilsons....i know (did you know?) that there are billboards on some streets in some cities that can track what radio station you're listening to when you drive by...so , government is being very helpful in giving you 40 bucks off of your converter box ....(just because you're paranoid does not mean they're not all after you!)....otherwise, my ChanuChristWanza is turning out GREAT! ... i have no gifts to buy (i make stuff) i have lots of decorations up, (crazy about the christmas lights!) i am safe and warm and loved and (mostly) drama free..(i too have family, lol) ... and i'm dancing! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9z2ELaBVJY WEAREALL1LOVE,c...hay! ... i was just watching the entertainment news....do you suppose that one of michael jackson's heroes was howard hughes? ... i think i heard or read about something like that a long time ago....ok, i must be off....

UPDATE FOR GAYE ADEGBALOLA ~ JULY 2008




• NEW CD: "GAYE WITHOUT SHAME"
I am proud to say that this solo CD will be released by the VizzTone Label Group on July 22. Produced by multiple Blues Music Award winner Bob Margolin, it is fully steeped in the Blues tradition. Also, "Gaye Without Shame" carries the proud message of self-worth and acceptance. It embodies its title and I am indeed gay without shame. There are 16 cuts and 2 bonus tracks. Please, please take a few moments and check out some of the goodness on my...


• NEW WEBSITE! http://www.adegbalola.com
A total facelift visually echoes the new CD. My webmistress, Samantha Thomason, did a phenomenal job! The homepage features one of the cuts from the CD, "Let It Be Me." There are new sound bytes and 10 video clips of solo & duo performances, workshops & presentations. The new writing (#39) details the mission of "Gaye Without Shame." However, should you want the mission statement in a nutshell~~


• THE MISSION OF "GAYE WITHOUT SHAME"
Basically, I want this CD to share my struggle for acceptance. I want to highlight some of the issues facing my GLBT community -- my personal struggle for self-acceptance, the hypocrisy of the church, folks tippin' on the down low, transgender/sex issues, non-traditional family issues, a comparison of the gay rights to the civil rights struggle of the 60s', love songs -- with women, and, of course, a dose of my humor trademark.


In turn, I want the GLBT community to fully experience the universal healing power of the Blues. The songs reflect different Blues stylings -- New Orleans, Classic Blues, Piedmont, Delta, Jump Blues, Rhythm and Blues, and, of course, a Doo Wop. It has 13 originals and 5 cover songs which include some Blues "chestnuts." Again, for more info, please visit http://www.adegbalola.com. If you like what you hear and what you read, we would be honored to have ~~


• YOUR SUPPORT
We have no idea what kind of reaction this CD might get. If you are my friend, I ask you to buy one in the spirit of friendship. If you are a Blues lover, I ask your support in understanding that the blues was born of oppression. If you are GLBT, I ask you to buy this CD to spread the word and worth of our cause. If you have GLBT family and friends, I ask that you buy one and pass it on to them to say "you are not alone." If you believe in the worth of all people, your support is vital.


You can buy it PRE-RELEASE, RIGHT NOW! at: http://www.adegbalola.com/listen_shop.html
I need your help to get this message out. Please email friends in your address book about this mission.


. . .




• INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCES
In April, Roddy and I had a two week tour in Ghana and Togo, West Africa. We were emissaries for the US Embassy. Our brand of Neo-Classic Blues with historical commentary was a hit in both countries. Plus, we had the opportunity to tour much of Ghana. A photo gallery of our amazing journey is under construction and will go up on the website next week.


Roddy and I have been booked for return performances in France. The Blues sur Seine Festival won the Keeping the Blues Alive Award from the Blues Foundation for International Events. This festival has over 75 events in more than a dozen cities. We are delighted to return to the Mantes la Jolie area (approximately an hour from Paris).

A Love Letter From Jesus

this always hangs in my house .... (except the last place, maybe that's what went wrong) ... i'm 'bout to hang it right now ...it was sent to me by a neighbor of my mom's when i was going through a hard time in new england, way back in the 80's...

A LOVE LETTER FROM JESUS

How are you? I just had to send you this letter to tell you how much I love and care about you. I saw you yesterday as you were walking with your friends. I waited all day, hoping you would walk with me also. As evening grew near, I gave you a sunset to close your day, and a cool breeze to rest you. Then I waited, but you never came. Oh yes, it hurt me, but I still love you because I am your friend.

I saw you fall asleep last night, and I longed to touch your brow, so I spilled moonlight upon your pillow and your face.....Again I waited, wanting to rush down so we could talk. I have so many gifts for you.

You awakened late this morning and rushed off for the day. My tears were in the rain. Today you looked so sad, so alone ... it makes my heart ache because I understand. I try to tell you in the quiet grass. I whisper it in the leaves and trees, and breathe it in the mountain streams, and give the birds love songs to sing....I clothe you with warm sunshine and perfume the air...My love for you is deeper than the oceans, and bigger than the biggest want or need you could ever have.

We will spend eternity together in Heaven. I know how hard it is on earth. I really know, because I was there, and I want to help you. My Father wants to help you too. He's that way, you know...Just call me, talk to me. It is your decision....I have chosen you, and because of this I will wait....Because I love you.
Your Friend,
Jesus

DESIDERATA ~ Max Ehrmann 1927

hay babies...i have recently moved, and i'm still unpacking...i have all of my media out, and found my vynal (sp?) of "hair"... in it was the following: (i love that inspirational stuff!)
p.s. i saw "hair" with my high school boyfriend in cincinnati when they came to town ...i forgot to bring my binoculars, but from far away, i think i saw donna summer naked! ... how cool is that?

DESIDERATA

Go placidly amid the noise & haste, & remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly & clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story. * Avoid loud and aggresive persons, they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. * Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Excerise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and eveywhere life is full of heroism. * Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity & disenchantenment it is perennial as the grass. * Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. * You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. * Therefore, be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labours & aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul. * With all it's sham, drudgery & broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be careful. Strive to be happy.** ... yeah, baby!....love,c

hello babies,
it`s been a long time since i've talked with you'se...i've been very busy...i'm
trying to get all married up and get my married house in order. after that immo'
get my website updated...i've already sent this out a billion times, but here's
your invite, 'cause we're throwing something like the old socials, rent partys
etc....
January 28th will be when to skittle to the party for newlyweds Cheryl and Keith
Little. We'll already be married ~ don't dress up too much - an informal party -
family,friends and such.There'll be plenty of food to be eaten up..it's BYOB so
fill your own cup.Music, singing and dancing ~ a champagne toast..Do not bring
a gift 'cause your hostess and host already have "stuff" so you may have heard
we'd rather have money to deal with 5th/3rd. A box by the door for your card
(and some money?) or not ~ just show up ~ we love you, honey

hello gang, 'member me? it's been awhile...i'm all messed up about the gulf
coast of course...i haven't found out what my calling will be yet, but i'm sure
i will know soon enuf...meanwhile i'm sending lots of prayers...they work,you
know...my betrothed, (good man that he is) spent the day yesterday helping
to pack trucks with stuff to take down there...he has told me stories of waste.
i cannot be a second or third party in this...i will send no money,,,i will spend
no time unless i can do it directly, and i'm sure my time or money will come to help...
...ok babies....stay blessed and don't forget to pray. love,c
