Just For Now-Nancy Wilson-One of My Favorites By Her

Why must it always be forever?
Why can't it be like just for now?
Lets just enjoy our sweet endeavour
and be clever just for now.
Forget that one of these tommorows
There's gonna be a price to pay
And though the future may hold some sorrows
we'll remember yesterday.
And so we've had the fling
and we've done most everything
yet, we'll remember
we will remember
that it was just
for now

Rain Sometimes

Nancy Wilson

Rain sometimes
Money down the drain, sometimes
Reason to complain, sometimes
That's how it'll be
But there'll be something, sometimes
Lobster flown from Maine, sometimes
We'll ride the gravy train, sometimes
Just you wait and see

We may be stranded in the rain, sometimes
Dream our dreams in vain, sometimes
Lose more than we gain, sometimes
But this I guarantee
Love is not for sometimes
Love is for all time
For all time, for you and me

We may be stranded in the rain, sometimes
Lose more than we gain, sometimes
But this I guarantee
Love is not for sometimes
Love is for all time
For all time, for you and me

For you and me
For you and me

I've Been Searching For This Song So Long--Zoomin'

Lionel Richie

I may be just a foolish dreamer
But I don't care
'Cause I know my happiness is waiting out there somewhere
I'm searching for that silver lining
Horizons that I've never seen
Oh I'd like to take just a moment and dream my dream
Dream my dream
I'd like to fly afr away from here
Where my mind is fresh and clear
And I'd find the love that I long to see
Where everybody can be what they wanna be
I'd like to greet the sun each morning
And walk amongst the stars at night
I'd like to know the taste of honey in my life
Well I've shared so many pains
And I've played so many games
But everyone finds the right way
I'd like to fly away far from here
Where my mind can be fresh and clear
And I'd find the love that I long to see
People can be what they wanna be
I wish the world were truly happy
Living as one
I wish the word they call freedom someday would come
Someday would come
I'd like to fly far away from here
where my mind can be fresh and clear
And find the love that I long to see
Everybody acn be what they wanna be
I'd like to fly away
I'd like to fly away
I'd like to fly away
You and me baby
Walking free
Don't you wanna go?
Don't you wanna go?

Great News!

A Judge in Detroit has ruled Bush's secret wiretaps unconstitutional!
At Wy's funeral, she recieved a citation as a Distinguished Citizen from the Governor.

Read This

Lou Dobbs has an eye-opening and jaw dropping article posted on entitled "It's Good to be a Superpower." Quite an articulate assessment of the U.S.

Project Runway

I am so glad Michael won again! I did like Jeffrey's outfit, but he is an asshole. Go Michael!
There is this beautiful mulatto boy sitting across from me. He is 21. I am absolutely crazy about his hair. It is the same texture as mine. He has a beautiful face too, especially the nose.


The power structure says at this time that there is no need for Feminism, Affirmative Action, Social Welfare, or Hate Crime legislation. Everybody is equal. We’re forty years past the Civil Rights Era. That solved every question, all of the problems, right? So, now is the time to be quiet, to keep your mouth shut and support your nation. Time to site around the table of “brotherhood” with your mouth shut and your hands in your lap attentively listening to the banter of your great white “brother.” You put on your fine, pressed suit and show your face, give an appearance of unity, but don’t let yourself be heard. It is not necessary and above all, its disloyal. You’ll be a troublemaker. You won’t fit in. You’ll disturb their peace and unity. Peace and unity, loyalty—what kind of words are these?

The vernacular of the Big Brother is demeaning, patronizing, and obliges “the rest of us” to take guarded steps and to always walk with a guardian, a protector, someone to watch over you. You are not capable of going out alone. It is phallocentrism in its newest form. “Brother”-hood. At present, this brother of ours is trying to scare us into submission=with terror alerts and links between bad boys-a group of which he interestingly leaves himself out He fails to mention that he once was in cahoots with this group that he now demonizes. Brother doesn’t mention that before Saddam and Osama became enemies numbers one and two, before they were the forces of evil, that both were on the payroll of the United States government, that Bin Laden, presumably the devil himself, was given money and other forms of aide to wage war against the Russians.

And so now we are supposed to ignore these facts and turn our attention away from matters of equality, humanity, economic security, and the protection of our basic civil and human rights and rally around the presidential agenda, with our mouths shut. It is the highest form of fascism when one is bid to silence one’s own voice in support of the “common good.” The effect is to negate the human dignity of a nation’s citizenry. To comply is to trap one’s own soul in a cage. The only solution is to eradicate this system.

Whenever there is a system that operates in such a manner that it becomes fascist and the society becomes so closed to dissent that it is equaled with treason, the blood has stopped flowing and it is time to abolish the system. In order to live, every branch of the body and of the human system must function and a system cannot function when the flow of ideas and creativity stop circulating.

Furthermore, in the preservation of one of our basic human rights, we cannot afford to let anyone; especially a government, stop our voices from flowing in order to galvanize public opinion or to wield the mask of national unity.

Some of My Role Models

The people I try to emulate and look to for guidance and inspiration include Alice Walker, Angela Davis, bell hooks, Howard Zinn,Assata Shakur, Germaine Greer, Elaine Brown, Barbra Streisand, Jane Fonda. These are the people I aspire to be like.

I may not know where my living body might end up, but I do know where my body and soul shall rest, in my family cemetary where my great-great grandparents and great-grandparents are buried and where all of my other relatives are buried. Goodsons, Deramuses,and Smiths.

Washington is Something Else

Now, they are trying to deny that Bin Laden ever was in cahoots with the CIA.
Chris Rock is absolutely hilarious!

I must say that I very much like the Iranian President Ahmadenijad. I also think he is cute. He had some very good things to say and I have always been appreciative of his handling of Bush and U.S. imperialism. Mike Wallace gets on my nerves.
I am remembering my sister's grade school, St. Ambrose. It was a beautiful and inspiring school. I remember the stone and the wood and I remember the school was quite intriguing to me and I like d to explore it. My sister was in a school play there and they performed to Sammy Davis' Jr.'s "Hit the Road Jack." I very much enjoyed that. My sister's dance troupe, outside of the school also did a performance and my sister performed to Gloria Estefan's "Conga."
Dr. D is getting on my behind. I am going to get down to work.
