“All you have to do is
come as YOU are”
OHHHH People http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3w57WSKUrpw
Ms Patti walked on the stage;
and my heart dropped!
Yes yes she was
she was the “diva”
elegant and remarkable
I’ve loved and seen and been with
Patti through the years;
I have a keen sense
I could tell that
Patti was walking on to that stage
heart broken and in tremendous pain
It took my breath away
I hurt for her.
Patti is a woman of great strength
sang like the legend she is…
I knew, and it pained me
and at the same time
she filled my soul!
it was a night
of spirit filled music
seeing once again
and it filled my heart!
Oh yes, I was close to her, so close I could feel her energy, her pain, and at times the music carried her
where I’ve been before in my soul
again last night I went there again
it filled me up!
I worry so about the beloved
who now has diabetes
who has severe back pain
who let everyone know last night
she is now
68 years YOUNG
Of course she walked on that stage
and those 6″ heels!
And don’t you just know
just like the ones
that the crew place on Oprah’s feet at her tapings
of her shows!!!
RED SOLED INDEED
our Patti knows how to work em
walk in em
still can bust a move while wearing them!
true is true!
WAHT UP OPRAH?
I want me some red soles shoes… but probably I would do better with some
like Kamryn’s … you know
Michael JOrdon sneakers with red soles
so I am not too far off the ground!
Patti is a little thing,
but with those shoes
she is as tall as one could imagine!
oh what a gift to the music scene
to those who genuinely love her
are filled by her songs, her life
brilliance of stage
she took me
Somewhere Over The Rainbow
and I thanked her for it
I loved her and gave her a copy of
Patti gave her all, her muscians gave Patti all she needed
to in turn give her audience more than they expected.
But those of us
there that really know
we are worried,
We’ll Stand by HER
“Two STeps Away”
she really got me with her rendition of the night
with a guitarist on one side
her bass player on the other
and her sitting on a stool.
I just lost it.
She touched me in a way
that made me realize
well let’s just leave it at that.
Patti, you really got me last night,
I love you too.
We’re all just two steps away!
“Take your time Patti, just take your time”
It was good to be remembered by that
big ole’ Teddy Bear Bodyguard of Patti’s
I am ever so glad he takes such great care
Love you baby boy!!!
Walk on Ms Patti
YOU ARE TRULY
YOU’LL NEVER WALK ALONE!
OH how I miss that
she used to delight us with!
Talk about a “trend setter”
“walking/dancing to the beat of a different drum”
that is Patti!
We’ve sure had some times
what a class act delivering some powerful songs
Sing Patti, SING YOUR SONGS!!!
I’m just filled with the spirit
feel like I’m sitting right in the middle of a rainbow
last night I tripped the rainbow from one end to the other!
Laura and Mitch
are giving us our Christmas present
I am sure to trip to the other side of that rainbow
or take up my seat
right in the middle of it
I return to
Ruth Eckerd Hall
none other than
Can you even imagine
my sensory overload this week?
Oh but to be in my head/heart/nervous system!!!
I wish you all that I am blessed to feel today!
Walk in Beauty,
still listening to Patti in my heart
to order your book
