WE THREE KINGS OF ORIENT ARE

The Three Kings (Melchior, Caspar and Balthazar) represented Europe, Arabia and Africa respectively.

They came from afar, searching for Baby Jesus and brought them presents: Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh.

These valuable items were standard gifts to honor a king or deity in the ancient world: gold as a precious metal, frankincense as perfume or incense, and myrrh as anointing oil.

~~We Three Kings~~

(Piano/Cello)

Story behind the song
There is so much mystery surrounding the story of the Three Kings. Who were they? Where did they come from? What relation did they have to each other? We only really know what (or Who) they were after.

Their only guides were ancient scripture and a bright star. They would not give up until they found the Savior of the world, no matter the cost.

Our arrangement of this traditional Christmas song “We Three Kings” is a tribute to them, their tenacity, and their Noble Purpose.

OKAY

This Is Exactly What You Need to Hear Today

I follow The Piano Guys faithfully.

I’ve even seen them perform live.

It was an amazing experience.

Scrolling through the pages of my ‘internet’,

I noticed some incredibly awesome news.

They have a new CD on the way.

Yesterday, they posted a new video.

I hope you enjoy it!

Story behind the song

We’ve all had that phone call. That email or that message. That conversation.

Bad news.

We’re all struggling with something – a debilitating weakness or illness. Or someone we love is barely holding on. We watch the news. We see the tweets, the Facebook posts. The YouTube comments!

We hear about hate, terror, and despair. But just because what sells, what goes “viral,” or what gets attention may try to drown out the good in the world, it doesn’t mean that goodness is gone. Just because choruses of controversy and scandal shout louder than quiet symphonies of service, it doesn’t mean that inside most of us still genuinely want happiness not only for ourselves, but also our family, our friends, and our fellow human beings.

Media can make the world look bleak.

They’ve given themselves this job description, in part because there’s a darker side on the surface of human nature that feeds on fear and cynicism. But deep down, we are beings of light. And in the end, since darkness is merely the absence of light, light will inevitably overcome dark.

This is the essence of hope. And the essence of this song.

“No matter what you’ve been through, no matter if you think you’re falling apart, it’s gonna be okay.”

Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow. But we believe that someday, somehow, all things will be made right.

And as the Psalm says, “They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.”

goldswirl

In the meantime, there are so many more things to hope for and to work at while we yearn for the outcome we want so badly – more gratitude for what we have, more love for those we’ve taken for granted, more faith in ourselves and those we hold dear, and more confidence in a Divine purpose.

We felt like the best way to spread the message of this song was to supplement our standard classically-influenced instrumental niche with a more pop-driven tune featuring Al’s superb vocal skills.

As Oscar Hammerstein once said:

“It is a modern tragedy that despair has so many spokesmen, and hope so few.”

Please share this song with someone you think might need it today.

Thank you!

~~October 5, 2015~~ 

IT’S UP TO YOU

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 frame the goal.

One vote can change a nation,
One sunbeam lights a room.

One candle wipes out darkness,
One laugh will conquer gloom.

One step must start 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,

You see, It’s Up to You!

Freedom

~~September 18, 2015~~ 

BRAKE FREE FROM THE CHAINS

HOLD ON FOR ONE MORE DAY

I know this pain
Why do lock yourself up in these chains?
No one can change your life except for you
Don’t ever let anyone step all over you
Just open your heart and your mind, mmm
Is it really fair to feel this way inside?

Chorus

Ooh some day somebody’s gonna make you want to
Turn around and say goodbye
Until then baby are you going to let them
Hold you down and make you cry
Don’t you know?
Don’t you know things can change
Things’ll go your way
If you hold on for one more day
Can you hold on for one more day
Things’ll go your way
Hold on for one more day (one more day)

The drum is a powerful tool in Native American Indian/First Nations culture. The drums are the literal “heartbeat” of our spirits …. and we express that through our music and dance. Here is a cool new Flute, Drum & Guitar upbeat healing song honoring the Spirit Of The Drums …. along with some superb images of the USA Desert Southwest.

WHEN I WOKE UP THIS MORNING

I woke up today with a feeling of anticipation.

There was something different in the air.

In the  brief moment of waking and being in touch with reality, I knew there was something different.

It was very similar to Christmas morning, as a kid, before you realize what day it is and what is waiting for you.

Then I realized: I’m legally married!

No one can undo this!

History was made yesterday, June 26, 2015.

Marriage Equality is the law of the land!

I looked through my feed & there it was ….

Our commitment is recognized now as we have always recognized it.

BLine

MY STORY IN A NUTSHELL

As I was growing up I realized that I was “different” but I didn’t know how. Back in the 1950’s, I didn’t know there was a name for my difference. I just knew in my young mind that I wasn’t like others. Yet, I couldn’t pinpoint what is was. I realized I had what you can call “crushes” on some of my teachers, on some soap opera actresses, on some movies stars he majority of which were female. There were also a few guys but not that many. I felt more comfortable in the presence of women. I was chubby and later gained weight. I felt I wasn’t pretty. No guy would ever be interested in me. And this was OK.

I went to a Catholic school from kindergarten to high school. The principles of that faith were ingrained in my mind and soul. Now I think I was “brainwashed” into believing the religious principles. This was my life. My parents were both very active in our parish. Nuns and priests were a staple of my growing up.

It wasn’t until I went to college that I knew. Initially, I didn’t have a name for my feelings either.

I went to a Catholic university (can you believe that!) and that’s were I met an exchange student who lived in the same dorm I did. This dorm was run by nuns.

The exchange student and I became inseparable. The best of friends. Soulmates, two peas in a pod, two of a kind. We found that we had similar interests and it felt as if we’d know each other forever. She was born in Puerto Rico but lived in Baltimore. She also was raised in the Catholic church and had similar beliefs.

RBLine

LIFE GOT IN THE WAY

It wasn’t until 1996 when we reconnected again …. and we haven’t separated since then. We decided that we wanted to be together for the rest of our lives as many years as we had left.

I never thought that I would be able to marry the love of my life. I knew we were committed for life but marriage? At our age, aside from love and passion, there are many reasons and benefits to changing your civil status from single to married.

Florida legalized same sex marriages on January 6, 2015. We were there on the first day, getting our marriage license and participating in a “mass wedding” that same afternoon. Still we didn’t think that nationwide would be a reality … not in our lifetime.

RBLineLMRBLine

Then, yesterday happened!

The law of the land … marriage equality for all 50 states. And it can’t be undone. That gives us peace of mind in so many ways.

We are beyond happy that our love, union and commitment is recognized in the eyes of the law and of society.

No9

~~May  13, 2015~~ 

Choice round of the Semi-Finals .. Judge’s Choice

NOAH AND SHARNA

The remaining four dancing couples of Dancing With The Stars Season 20 performed for votes. Each couple performed two routines — one with the Judges’ Choice and a second routine.

For the Judges’ Choice round, each of the judges will be assigned to a couple to coach for one dance, choosing their song, dance style and overall creativity.

Noah and Sharna worked with Carrie Ann …. and they did a magnificent job.

BLine

The judge, Carrie Ann, intended to mirror Noah’s journey from wartime injury to recovery, and ultimately, performing on DWTS.

Julianne Hough calls it Noah’s best dance yet, and Noah and Sharna earned a Perfect 30.

From Week 9 of the 2015 season of Dancing with the Stars.
