Thoughts for today, #401 …. “Never Surrender …. Not Going Away …. “!!


~~September 9, 2016~~


“Never despair. Never surrender.”

~Alan Moore, Watchmen~



The road is long
With many a winding turns
That leads us to who knows where
Who knows where

But I’m strong
Strong enough to carry him
He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother

So on we go
His welfare is of my concern
No burden is he to bear
We’ll get there

Hollies – He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother Lyrics


She’s my sister too.

She’s my concern.

I will carry her.

We won’t surrender.

~~January 9, 2015~~ 


Mary Louise “Meryl” Streep (born June 22, 1949) is an American actress. A three-time Academy Award winner, she is widely regarded as one of the greatest film actors of all time.

Streep made her professional stage debut in The Playboy of Seville in 1971, and went on to receive a 1976 Tony Award nomination for Best Featured Actress in a Play for A Memory of Two Mondays/27 Wagons Full of Cotton.

She made her screen debut in the 1977 television film The Deadliest Season, and made her film debut later that same year in Julia. In 1978, she won an Emmy Award for her role in the miniseries Holocaust, and received her first Academy Award nomination for The Deer Hunter.

Nominated for 19 Academy Awards in total, Streep has more nominations than any other actor or actress in history, winning Best Supporting Actress for Kramer vs. Kramer (1979), and Best Actress for Sophie’s Choice (1982) and for The Iron Lady (2011).

Streep is one of only six actors to have won three or more competitive Academy Awards for acting.

At the end of the day …. Dodinsky: “Smile and Dreams”!!


~~May 26, 2015~~

Another Chance

Helen Steiner Rice

A new beginning starts with a deep desire for change. Hope for a new day is an eternal theme in poetry and in life. Without hope, what do we really have?

How often we wish for another chance
To make a fresh beginning.
A chance to blot out our mistakes
And change failure into winning.

It does not take a new day
To make a brand new start,
It only takes a deep desire
To try with all our heart.

To live a little better
And to always be forgiving
And to add a little sunshine
To the world in which we’re living.

So never give up in despair
And think that you are through,
For there’s always a tomorrow
And the hope of starting new.

To start the day …. Alex Boye’: “Show Me A Way Out”!!


~~April 30, 2015~~ 


Alex Boye’

“My goal is not to be famous, but to seek to be of value to the world, with a deeper purpose, and be led by God.”

People always ask me, “Why are you not more well known?”, or, “How come more people don’t know about your music?”, I’ve even had “Sorry, I’ve never heard about you. Ha Ha!”

Here is my response. “Stick around. Because I never give up!“. You will soon see me everywhere, then after awhile, you will be saying, “I’m tired of hearing and seeing that Alex Boye’ everywhere. Or you will say, “If I hear Alex Boye’s song one more time on the radio, I will kill myself.” (I’ve heard that said about many other artists music, so I know they will say it about me). My goal is not to be famous, but to seek to be of value to the world, with a deeper purpose, and be led by God. Fame brings with it a whole bunch of other challenges that most are not aware of. My goal is to be of value.

To be a musician with higher a purpose.

I’ve learned from spending time with celebs who have told me that being a musician for the sake of being rich popular and famous will NEVER bring happiness. (I’ve heard that in the scriptures somewhere too wink emoticon. It has been such hard work. But I LOVE what I do, and am so thankful and blessed to have a patient & understanding wife. That I get to use a medium I’m passionate about everyday. That there are so many people such as you who may be reading this, that have been great champions and supporters of what I do. I know my work and my music will continue to be inflated. I just pray that I won’t.

~~Show Me a Way Out~~

Original Song – Alex Boye’

~~Published on Apr 30, 2015~~

I am so pleased to announce that I have joined non-profit organization, Interweave Solutions as one of the board of directors. They do so much great work in front, and behind the scenes, and I feel a special connection to their service and mission to help individuals and communities in Africa and other parts of the world to stand on their own two feet. See press release below!


Alex Boyé, musician and Youtube sensation, releases his latest video and original song “Show Me a Way Out” to raise money for Interweave Solutions, a non profit organization that helps people in developing countries create micro-businesses.

“We met Alex late last year who shares our passion for helping people in Africa create self reliance for themselves,” says Dean Curtis, co-founder of Interweave Solutions, a non-profit organization with projects around the globe. “He understands our message more than just about any other entertainer on the planet.”

“I have been to Africa many times, and I can tell you that people don’t need handouts, they need a way out, and interweave can show them that!” Says Boyé.

To start the day ….. “Handicap: None”!!


~~April 19, 2015~~ 


Eight-Year-Old Amputee Performs An Emotional Dance Only A Year After Losing Her Leg

An eight-year-old girl, who lost her leg below the knee after she was hit by a truck last year, has given her first solo dance performance since the tragedy and earned a standing ovation.

Alissa Sizemore, from Vernal, Utah, was seven-years-old when her leg was severed when a truck ran over it. Her right leg had to be amputated below the knee, but the girl, who had been taking dancing lessons since she was four-years-old, was determined to get back in the dance studio just as soon as possible.

Last May, Alissa was playing with her sister Cyley and some of her friends outside when she ran past a few garbage bins which were pulled to the curb, just as a truck was breaking to a stop. Alissa’s right foot was caught underneath the truck’s tire.

The girl was immediately flown to Primary Children’s Medical Center in Salt Lake City, but doctors were unable to save her leg.

The girl was dependent on a wheelchair or crutches before she was fitted with her prosthetic leg, but she was already doing simple dance moves in the studio her father had built for her and her sisters.

Alissa told People:

I just didn’t want to give up. Dancing has been my favorite thing since I was four. I don’t have part of my leg, but I can’t let that stop me. I still want to dance.

For her debut performance, Alissa, who received a prosthetic leg in September 2014, chose Colbie Caillat’s hit Try. She and her mom felt that the song reflected her emotional journey over the past year. She removed her artificial limb as a part of the routine. Alissa’s mother Heather shared a video of her daughter’s performance on her YouTube channel.

The footage shows Alissa sporting a seafoam green ballet costume, as she walks confidently toward a bench set up in the middle of Vernal’s high school gymnasium, where the performance took place.

The little girl is seen performing an impressive series of leg stretches and even a cartwheel before removing her prosthetic limb.

To start the day …. “The Power of One”!!


~~January 15, 2015~~ 

This video has been presented before in this blog.

The message is so intense, real and to the point that we wish to share it again. I read a post by Mavadelo this morning which reminded me of this video. A previous post about perpetual war has taken me down the path that something needs to happen to change our world. They say …. “be the change”.  

It all has to be at the personal level. Many times it seem like an impossible task. Many times despair, doubt and disappointment set in. Yet … what will happen if we give up. The battle to improve is endless and against immense foes.

Never give up!

“You are one. You are unique. You are important. You are special.

One song can spark a moment. One flower can wake the dream. One tree can start a forest. One bird can herald spring. One smile begins a friendship. One handclasp lifts a soul. One star can guide a ship at sea. One word can set the goal. One vote can change a nation. One sunbeam can light a room. One candle wipes out darkness. One laugh will conquer gloom. On step starts each journey. One word must start each prayer. One hope will raise our spirits. One touch can show you care. One voice can speak with wisdom. One heart can know what’s true. One life can make the difference.

It’s up to you. Be bold. Be courageous. Be proud. Be yourself. 

Learn. Grow. Teach. Dream. Inspire. Explore. Hope. Pray. Listen. Create. Help. Serve. Motivate. Discover. Share. Believe. Achieve. Wonder. Pursue. Love. Protect. Experience.

You can make a difference.

Pass it on ….. “

After a 40 month battle with Cancer, sadly he passed away. He was 14 years old. Before Tyler died, his story and his request that others help him fight Cancer, resulted in hundreds of units of blood being donated, and more than 2,000 people joining “Be The Match” (the national bone marrow registry). He is a Hero.”

Scott Wright Photography …. on turning 50 in 2011!!


~~August 24, 2014~~

Turning 50 …. in 2011!

“I wanted to share today a special video to commemorate the 3 year anniversary of my facebook page.

I awoke early one morning a few weeks ago to Rae saying something about how she had to get up and write something down.
By the time I got up several hours later at about 7 AM, she was just finishing. This video is the text of what she wrote that night. She handed it to me to read, and I was flabbergasted. Who is that she’s talking about? Those sound like pretty big shoes to fill, I don’t know if I can do that.


The Universe works in strange ways sometimes, in ways incomprehensible to us as they are happening, but when looking back, the path goes from one way, to another, to another, then all of the sudden you realize, the path has led you to where you were meant to be your entire life.

It’s quite a moment to suddenly realize that all the things you have been doing for so many years, good, bad or indifferent, have painted a tapestry of choices defining this moment.
That moment is now. I have a message for others that I hope will help them in their lives. It is the story of my Journey, and the story of Rae’s Journey, coming together in a perfect confluence to help us find how we can best serve and love others.

I hope you enjoy this video as we continue to walk the path together! From my heart to yours!

Alone We are Miracles, Together We are Miraculous!”

Scott & Rae

~~Alive In The World – Jackson Browne~~

~~Published on Aug 8, 2012~~

I made this video to chronicle this last year, and the 1 year anniversary of my Facebook page, Scott Wright Photography. Also the beginning of my Addiction Recovery page, Life Illuminated-Addiction Recovery in Today’s World.

It is very autobiographical for me, as I lived in a world of the shadows of Addiction for many years. My connection to Nature through photography, has been a huge part of my recovery, so I made this to share with others who may feel lost. It’s never too late, never give up!

There is a Light which can enlighten your path and enable you to connect to the things you were meant to learn from the beginning of your earthly existence. Remaining in the fog of addiction will make it impossible for you to know what Love truly is. I hope that message comes through in this compilation.

The beautiful lyrics by Jackson Browne is a gift to the world!
