At the end of the day … “Celine: The Colour of My Love”!!


~~January 15, 2016~~ 


The Colour of my Love is my third Celine Dion CD. With its release in 1993, she was becoming stronger and stronger in her popularity in America.

I had all her previous CD’s.

I was an ardent fan!

There was no stopping Celine then. 

She crossed over into the American music scene.

When I buy a CD, I always look through the accompanying flyer/information.

Many times the lyrics to the songs are included, the credits to the writers and producers and many “thank you’s” to those involved in the project.

As I read the credits, I found a treasure.

I think that was her intention.

She wanted the world to know about her love for René.

“Love can move mountains”




“So many wonderful people who have worked so hard and supported me so much to make this album possible. Words alone cannot express my appreciation … I’m truly grateful for their encouragement and belief. I’d like to thank them all.”

She goes on, listing those who helped. She also thanks her parents. At the end of her message, you can read the most important part.

The most endearing and important thank you is this one:

“René …. for so many years I’ve kept our special dream locked away inside my heart. But now, it’s getting too powerful to keep inside of me.

So, after all these years, let me

“paint the truth, show how I feel, try to make you completely real”….

René, you are the colour of my love.”



The Colour of My Love is the third English-language studio album by Canadian recording artist Celine Dion. It was released by Columbia Records/550 Music on 9 November 1993. The songs were produced mainly by David Foster, Ric Wake, Guy Roche, Walter Afanasieff and Christopher Neil, and four of them were written by Diane Warren. The album features two cover versions of “The Power of Love” and “When I Fall in Love.”

After its release, The Colour of My Love received generally mixed reviews from music critics but became a commercial success, topping the charts in Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom and few other European countries, and reaching top ten elsewhere, including number four in the United States.

Celine Dion’s version of this song became a popular favorite.

“As it appears in … full read/full credit”

Celine is using colors to show her love for the man she would marry.


I’ll draw the years all passing by
So much to learn so much to try
And with this ring our lives will start
Swearing that we’ll never part
I offer what you cannot buy
Devoted love until we die ….

Skeptical third world kid … I think I found another new love!!

~~October 7, 2014~~ 


I don’t know who is he is or where he came from. I wonder who he is, where’s he’s gone and what has become of him. I don’t know who claims credit for the initial photograph. I do know he’s so cute and endearing. 

I found out about this little guy when the #IceBucketChallenge fad was in full blast. At the point that I first “met him”, he was wondering if, in spite of the water shortage in some places, there were people pouring it over themselves for a “challenge“.

I find his expression so endearing, so real and so meaningful. It’s an expression that says a lot …. and brings many realities to the forefront. The captions are as different and varied as the people who have “found him” and have created the captions.

Here you have some of the ones I’ve found.

Hope you enjoy them as much as I have. I have included some links to the meme generators in case you are inclined to make your own. They are at the “SOURCE” section below.

This funny meme offers up many takes on the very skeptical looking third world kid as he suspiciously eyes the foreigner.

It’s raining ….. awards!!!


~~April 10, 2014~~

As my good friend Patty, from, frequently says, there is a shower of awards arriving at “It Is What It Is“.

It never ceases to amaze me.

It’s a wonderful feeling to feel that your “work” and message is appreciated. The real values of these awards, for me, is the knowledge, like I’ve said before, that there is “someone out there“. As one sits at the PC, it’s you, your keyboard, your monitor and your heart and soul. It can be lonely, if you look at it that way. You never know what is going to happen. One can only hope for the best.

The feedback that one receives is what makes the difference. It’s a confirmation that your goal has been attained.


Today I’m combining five awards. They will be listed here and are available for any fellow blogger who wants to pick them up. There are no rules and no nominees. These are here for the taking.

Consider yourselves the champions of this blogosphere in which we interact.

We are all connected through this web we weave!

~~The awards are the following~~


~~Nominated by Tazein~~

Semper Fidelis is Latin and means Always Loyal. Wolves have very strong ties with their pack. Like a family or a great group of friends.

This award stands for the loyalty and love between friends.


~~Nominated by Holley ….

What is “The Dragon’s Loyalty Award” anyway?

Vintage Book Fairy’s blog provided the answer.

“The Dragon’s Loyalty Award is for the loyal fan/commenter, whether the recipient is a fellow blogger or just someone who follows and comments regularly.”


From Angie ….

“One version has a caption that says “For Blogging Excellence”. This one doesn’t. It’s actually for the angels in my life.  And that means all of you who read my posts. So everyone who reads this stop by and pick one up.  No strings, no rules. You are all my angels, and I can’t name you all.  So I will probably just stop in at every blog and let you know it’s here. And feel free to pass it on to all your friends and followers. You can never have enough angels in your life.”


From “Idealistic Rebel” ….

It has German origins – the word “liebster” has several definitions: dearest, sweetest, kindest, nicest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, welcome, sweetheart, beloved person, darling, dear, darling. More definitions: beloved, liked very much; affectionate, loving favorite, preferred above others; liked or loved above others.

From “Moorbey” ….

“When you consider nominating a fellow blogger for the Versatile Blogger Award, consider the quality of the writing, the uniqueness of the subjects covered, the level of love displayed in the words on the virtual page. Or, of course, the quality of the photographs and the level of love displayed in the taking of them.

Honor those bloggers who bring something special to your life whether every day or only now and then.

And, have fun!”


Anyway, today I’m bending the rules for these awards.

Anyone who stops at this post, feel free to take them and display them proudly in your blog. If you are here, you are:

A dear, versatile, beloved loyal friend who is one of the angels in my life!!
