Lights, Action Camera, and here we Go, Sunday!


It’s a rainy Sunday and the coffees’ hot!
The world is preparing for
those marvelous outfits,
the GOLD statues
we know now were crafted from a handsome Mexican fella
who posed
for their creation
and
of course wouldn’t ya just know it
the “buzz” is already going over the fact that he never himself won an
Oscar,
that he was “reluctant to pose”
for the statue
and
how in the world can anyone not now try to make some news from the fact that he was
a
Mexican who made the pose…
(who would have thunk it)
Wonder why they haven’t updated that statue of gold
and
now have it both
modeled
from a woman and a man?
After all it is won by both!
Well the good news of this latest n
news
is just maybe
Entertainment Tonight
and
The Insider will now
leave
Whitney alone
or find ways to give us some
NEW entertainment
or
even dig a little deeper into their music library so that our love
of her music
can now ease our brains
from the continual loop
of
“I will always love you”
that is now wearing tremendously thin on everyone’s nerves.
I sure hope the carpet
is being rolled out
and
that all the magnificent dresses and cumberbunds will not clash with its colors out there in the land of stardom;
that everyone will
behave themselves
and
that the tribute
of
Whitney will find those who are
authentic
being the ones that remember her
with grace.
Now we all have our favorites
of the year,
and
of course
George Clooney
will just tug at the heart strings
of the world
as
only George can do!
AND
I still have to wonder about those in the media
who now rage on about entertainment
and the movies we all pay our hard earned money to go and see
but yet have to be hearing about the
greater social and historical
validity of.
The after words of those who sit behind desks and on the air
who place judgment
on the movies,
the actors and actresses
and
the content and social implications
of the films.
The freedom to
“choose” and
“choice”
are important to me
as
a person, as a woman,
and in this time and political climate
have never been stronger.
But when I think of going to movies,
of being entertained,
of even being reminded of the past,
and
always learning,
yes learning through film, interpretation
I cannot understand
why those who review, who sit behind the desks of prized and respected stations across the Nation
have to weigh in with the political and social value of films.
Documentaries perhaps,
other news programs … maybe,
but we are talking the
entertainment industry,
an
industry
with actors and actresses
and
animals trained
to provide entertainment
for others
No one thinks things up out of
thin air, most topics have some true and very real substance,
an experience or many experiences grounded in the past,founded in someones’ or something
from history, crafted to “sell tickets” and based on the skills of the ones that are paid handsomely to perform.
It is that rich combination of so many skills,
from the writers, to the producers, to the directors, the scenes, music
and
so many more things that truly would boggle my mind
and
that I have no idea of its complexities
that draw us in,
captivate our senses
and
leave us
either
moved beyond measure
or sorry we wasted our time and our money.
Reminds us of
music and it’s impact in that way
doesn’t it?
I think that is why I enjoy
Steven Tyler so much
as I watch him on
American Idol!
Now I will admit
he is one off the hook man,
and
he just cracks me up with his antics,
most recently
“mooning the audience and then stripping off and jumping in the waters that surrounded the judges to take a swim”
even to the shock of Randy and J LO!
BUT,
when that man listens to music of those contestents,
he listens with his soul,
his body,
all of his senses.
It is clear when he is moved,
when he hears and feels potential,
and
when he does not like something he hears!
He and I are a lot like each other in that way!
And so it will be tonight
when the magic
results are read,
the winners announced.
Hearts will be pounding, although folks will appear composed;
palms will be sweating,
although smiles will be across faces.
Millions will be tuned in,
although many will be in their sweats and pj’s.
We go to the movies for entertainment,
We rent movies
after looking at many many selections
and
we pick what we
choose
from what appeals to us
based on
what we desire at the time,
what speaks to us.
Yet,
after we’ve seen
or before we’ve had a chance to see,
we listen to the “view and opinion”
of those who sit behind a desk
as they give a commentary
on the “accuracy”, the “slant”
through their world and personal view
of not just the film,
but
those who star in it.
I would think
they could do it in a less judgmental way
or
one that simply says,
“I like this movie
or
I didn’t like this movie”
So,
as for me,
My VOTE tonight goes to
“THE HELP”
Viola Davis ~ Octavia Spencer
and of course
I have to go with
that handsome devil
George Clooney
in whatever movie he is in!
So there you go,
just
“keepin it real”
on a rainy mornin
with a tad of chill in the air!
Now for music
and I’m sure there will be great music
and a tribute of and for Whitney tonight.
But as far as tributes go,
let’s give them while folks are alive,
so they can perform at their own
moment in time,
and
for tributes in music
this morning
Patti Labelle,
a diva, a beautiful woman,
one who can sing the telephone book and take you to church on this Sunday morning!
“When You’ve Been Blessed”
just pass it on
just like Patti sings!
Today I hope you find
imagination to take you
“WAY UP THERE”
where the angels sing
and
imagination can take you to
amazing grace.

must stand and reach
and
go for IT
Perhaps today?

So for today,
I will leave you with this brilliance while you listen to Patti
once again!
“Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.”

~Mother Teresa ~
Just keepin it Real,
Walk in Beauty,

  1. That bug/crud and sick house has reached FL … EE get well, we need you, and this bug is an unwelcomed component of our world!Blessings on the "clean winds" to you and happy to see you.NEVAH watched the Oscars?ohhh goodness, well hope you got to see some glimpses of it and all the glimmer… feel better real quick, and chase them bugs away with a crutch or ole' Jack to growl it away!

  2. Greetings on the Colorado Winds friends. Nice to see everyone here. EE and her world are in the sick house but we are surviving.I never watched the Oscars but now think I must just so I can say I have. I wish they would leave Whitney alone and let the woman have peace.Hugs on the wind to all hereEE

  3. Reblogged this on Work the Dream and commented:
    Check out my friend Sherry’s blog. She is an awesome speaker and writer and leave me feeling inspired for life every day.

  4. I Find the Oscars hard to watch because it is not what people vote but what some people behind a desk say. I much prefer the first. I want to see The Help. It was here and I missed it.
    Thank you for such powerful words and the blessing you radiate to all who come here.
    🙂

  5. Happy Sunday Afternoon to my friends here. So good to read the words today and thinking about the awards to be given. Got here late today, same as yesterday. Had some things to do after church. My nephew from Florida is here for 2 days and we had lunch with him. He travels for his job. It was good to see him even if only a few hours. Yes "A", Sunday and many on the prayer list who need prayers for many reasons. So, we hold them up in prayers this day as we read each name listed. So grateful for such a place to come to and known we are among friends that care. Sorry it is rainy there where you are. It it nice and sunny here today in SE Michigan but is a little chilly in the 30s. Love the sun though. Dr. Sherry, thank you and Bless you for your words, thoughts, love and care. Wishing everyone a very joyous and happy day and enjoy those Blessings given to us today. Hugs to each of you /Sandy♥

  10. Good day for ducks doc. Rainy, drizzly and grey. Not to worry, the sun will return. As I don't know one actor from another, rarely can identify a singer by listening to the music… all the award shows buzz above my head. Too much stuff in my head anyway. No need to add any more. Hope I'm not running outta space up there. Hope everyone has a great day. If you watch the awards tonight, dig in and enjoy.
