Today I find that a familiar tune from the past is ringing in my ears. A year ago who would have ever thunk that this fabulous Jimmy Somerville diddy would suddenly become relevant.
Well Juanita it has.
This musical inspiration has suddenly become relevant again. It is a tune of inspiration out of oppression. Thus we are getting it down from the shelf, dusting it off and shaking our cute little tushy about the house. We are warming ourself up to get up, get out and stand up. Stand up for honest human values.
You go Jimmy. Get us up, get us going!
Don’t ever let us forget.

Jimmy Somerville 1990
When one of us is oppressed we are all oppressed.
We’ve stood up for what was right before …and Juanita we ain’t forgot how!
Enough is enough is enough is enough.
Due to unfortunate circumstances the need for a Hero is now upon us.
Is it not time to realize that the Hero we need is us? All we must do is stand up, speak out and help our fellow man. Do right. Stand up. Act.
Support justice and support journalism.
True correct journalism is needed now more than ever. Free news is not news.
Subscribe to good journalism. Why not good upstanding news papers online or in print? Just this week we subscribed to The Washington Post. Give it, or another, a try. Let’s us put our money where our mouth is.
Let us speak out, speak justly, speak truth and speak with love. Love for our fellow man.
There is no black, no white, no brown, no yellow, no gay, no straight, no Jew, no Christian, no atheist, no Muslim, no gender, no anything other than HUMAN.
Hero. Be one.
Talent like this never dies. May his music live in our hearts.
Thanks Al, we loved you and will miss you. Godspeed.
Roger…thank you for the encouragement, the inspiration and the beauty.
Bill …Wende contacted me this morning to share with me that you passed. May peace be yours. I know that you were a gift to Wende and to your children. I believe you will dance with them, and through them, their entire lives. Godspeed.

John Mayer captures one of life’s wonderful pleasures explicitly with his beautiful words and relaxing rythyms.
Music to soothe the soul.
Fearsome has asked me to post this very inspirational tune to begin our week in contemplation. A contemplation of our values. A contemplation to act. To act by starting from deep within …
…and then we take our next Step.
What goes up,
Must come down.
Spinnin’ wheel, got to go ’round.
Keeping our sanity.
Life, culture, politics, values… everything cycles. Keeping perspective of that helps me deal with change. Looking at history, cycles happen. Yet somehow they cycle, eventually, toward betterment than the cycle before. Seat belts on, here we go. What goes up, must come down. Spinin’ wheel, got to go ’round.
Things may not be perfect in our world, but please remember one thing…
Don’t ever stop dreaming.
If we don’t dream, we can never make our dreams come true.
Barbra & Seth have taken one of Fearsome’s favorite tunes and done it justice. Way.
I love travel.
I love my home.
I met a dear old friend at The Gateway theatre in Ft. Lauderdale to see a certain musical that takes place in a certain SoCal location.
Unfortunately the opening scene is yet to be found in the clips. Just the song will have to do. And it does fine. From the moment this song started until the very end of the credits a warm feeling filled my heart as Fearsome absorbed the joyful tears and covered the smile beaneath his oversized mustache.
This movie is beautiful. This movie is Los Angeles. This movie helped me to realize that Southern California is my beloved home. I may not have been born here, but this is home. Seeing this flick while sitting in a comfortable and familiar theatre in my home away from home only cemented that I am a Californian to the bone.
We cried, we laughed, we smiled, we loved, we dreamed, we hoped, we accepted, we enjoyed.
The movie made me us homesick. Now we are home. We are home in San Diego just south of LA. A place who just lost their football team to LA, but we don’t care. Our home is Southern California. Realizing we love San Diego so much makes us realize we love Los Angeles as well. We love where we live. Homesick is actually good. A movie that can evoke such deep intimate feelings is good.
I love to travel. I love to come home.
I am home.
Another day of sun. Just dream.
You guessed it, here we go!
Business goal number 1 ;
My best year ever! Top producing agent with more than 15 million in closed sales.
So how was business for me on the first business day of the year? Fantastic!
I listed two properties into our MLS today and already sold one at $310,000 and have showings lined up for the other at $2,195,000. I spoke with one of my buyers who will be looking at a new listing in the neighborhood Saturday at $2,599,000 and had another new buyer prequalified for a $700,000 purchase.
What do I have to say to The Universe about this?
Thanks KC, no one could say it better!
One of the many gifts I received in 2016…

Stumbled upon this after I had finished all my Christmas posts. Brought tears to my eyes. I had this record as a child. No longer remember what happened to it. Now I have it here.
…only a hippopotamus will do
Take it away Gayla…
Yet another of Fearsome’s favorite holiday tunes as we continue our traditional posts of the season.
What do you want for Christmas? or Chanukah? or Both? This year they coincide seamlessly.
