In one of Harper Lee’s non-fiction pieces for Vogue magazine, on the topic of love, she wrote:

“Why, when we are familiar with every line, must we stop and listen when ‘The Messiah’ is playing? Because every note was born of a man’s love for God, and we hear it… Every creation of man’s mind that has withstood the buffeting of time was born of love — love of something or someone.”

So go ahead and write and sing what you love, David.

And if you love wearing ties, do that too.

If that means you inspire a legion of tie-wearing cats in the process, like these ones, then I say, go for it!

“David, you inspire me … and clean my litter box, you rock!”

A Life That’s Good

Not David related but the lovely ms. abanana77 told me about these two and they are a.m.a.z.i.n.g. (and not just because they’re Canadian :) ).

Group hug, beautiful souls

Yup, it’s that time of year again, folks. And despite my best efforts, I’ve been getting that feeling that giving up David for Lent was the right thing for me to do this year. (Yes, I am nuts, fully aware, lol.) It actually started on Wed. but I pre-programmed this to go up now, in case you were wondering. (sheesh, I sound like David, lol)

What is Lent all about?

To me, it’s like when you had plans to go to a lavish dinner dance on a yacht in the Caribbean, all expenses paid, but at the last minute you find out your mom is deathly ill with the flu and she’d never ask you to change your plans but you love her, hey, she’s your mom, so you cancel your plans, change out of your fancy ball gown, whip up chicken soup, go over and nurse her back to health.

Unfortunately in the case of Lent, it takes 40 days and 40 nights for her to get back on her feet. So, sure, there’s sacrifice involved, but it comes from a place of love. And even though you weren’t expecting anything in return, you get rewards you never expected. She tells you funny stories about her childhood. You rediscover your love of Scrabble. You get a beautiful, warm feeling inside that only true, unconditional love can bring.

That, to me, is what Lent’s all about.

Be well my wonderful friends, love and peace to each one of you. (And please be forgiving of the random, sketchy posts that I’ve programmed to pop up.)

I will leave you with this:

@DavidArchie Nunca Pensé video outtakes (not really)

There was a legend around the village. A legend of an hombre who could salsa like no other.

His moves were known throughout the land. Throughout the ages.

He was … David Salschuleta….
david-salsa-o
He could leap from the bottom of a waterfall….
bottom
… to the top… in a single bound.

How could I be like this hombre?

Learn his captivating Latino ways?

First, I must learn the guitar.

David Salschuleta was never heard actually playing the guitar but he held it in his hands like a virtuoso.

david-plays-guitardavid-archuleta-guitarLarge_420x550NO ONE strummed those silent strings like Salschuleta.

I now knew my mission. To look like I could play it as well as he looked like he could play it. And I knew just who could help me.

And where did Salschuleta learn his skillzz?

PLOT TWIST: Turns out he had the same app… and the same great-great-great-grand cousin.
