Celine Dion

We often wait until people die before we commend them. It is when they die that you hear how great they were. So here am I taking this opportunity to commend Celine Dion for her contribution to the music industry. She is one of my favorite artist and one of the greatest singer ever. Her music never gets old. Here is one of my favorites, A New Day as Come.

Are Dreams a Form of ESP?

Downtown Kingston

Some people might scoff at the mention of ESP and explain that anything related to it is merely coincidental, yet how many of you have had dreams and see the things you dreamed about unfolding in real life?  I for one dream a lot and yes sometimes these dreams happen.

Some dreams are messages to warm and guide us and if we understand them it can actually save us from harm. I will share with you some of my own experiences. One night I dreamed that my slippers was full of ants, this was a slipper that I normally slip into the moment I get home from work. The following day I got home from work kicked off my shoes reached for the slippers and there it was full of ants. I laughed showed it to my daughter and said “look even the stupid things that I dream happen.” So it was just a silly dream and it happened no big deal…no! this was preparing me for something more serious that was about to happen.

The following day I was planning to go into Kingston to do some shopping. For those of you who do not know, Kingston is Jamaica’s capital; it is also unfortunately one of the crime hub of the country. I was living in Port Antonio which at the time was almost crime free. That night I dreamed I could not find any shoes to wear, each time I put on a pair of shoes it would fall a part and for the entire night shoes after shoes just fell apart the moment I put them on.

I left for Kingston the next morning as planned but I was full of misgivings. I knew something was going to happen, I just didn’t know what. I prayed all the way that we would not have an accident. Arriving safely in Kingston I went about my shopping on high alert, very cautious, looking to spot trouble around every corner. I was tense the whole time. Nothing happened, I carried out my shopping without incident. Finishing my shopping for the day I slipped my handbag ( which I might add – I don’t normally carry) into one of my shopping bags and zipped it up. I was ready to go home I could relax and breathe easy. I figured if anything was going to happen it would have happened already. I was wrong. On my way to the bus stop a woman was selling clips on the side-walk. I stooped picked up a pack and reached inside the bag for my handbag to get the money to pay her. My hand came up empty, the handbag was gone I had been robbed!  My keys were gone, my purse with the money in it was gone but strangely I felt a sense of relief because I finally knew what was meant to happen.  The stuff that was gone did not matter because I still had my life.  Many people had died trying to defend what was theirs so I considered myself lucky.

Dreams sometimes come to guide us and prepare us for the unexpected. Have any of you had any such experience?

Jokes

Doctor Joke

There's a bunch of doctors gathered together at a doctor's convention one night.
 A male doctor notices a female doctor from across the room.
 The female doctor notices also and the next thing you know,
 they're sitting next to each other by the end of dinner.
 After dinner, the male asks the woman if she wants to go up to his hotel room.
 '"Sure," the woman says. ''Let me go wash my hands first."
 After she washes her hands, they have sex.
 After they are finished, she washes her hands again.
 This is really starting to annoy the male doctor so he says,
 ''You know, you must be a surgeon, because you keep washing your hands.''
 Angry at this remark, the woman says,
 ''Well, you must be an anesthesiologist, because I didn't feel a thing!''

Change in Seasons

20140506_13031820140506_130457

A wind of change is blowing
Spring ushers sweet fragrance in the air
It is a time of new beginnings
Past fears have disappeared.
Doubts have stepped aside to make
More room for growth.
The birds are singing sweetly in the trees,
Butterflies glide by gracefully,
Such splendid beauty bestowed upon us,
from the humble caterpillars.
The grass is sprouting from the ground
which was once a hard white mat of snow.
The naked trees are fully clothed,
their outstretched limbs
magnificently adorned with flowers.
Changes happen all around us
but sometimes we do not realize
that just like the changing seasons,
Changes will happen in our lives.
Remember that just like the storms of
Winter, winter storms will come into our lives.
But spring will come again!

Farewell Maya Angelou

The world has lost another great soul in the passing of Maya Angelou. The famous Author, Poet and Civil Rights 
Activist died at her home yesterday at the age of eighty-six. She was a wonderful woman who inspired the world 
with her quotes and poems. She was like the words of this poem, a phenomenal woman.

Phenomenal Woman
Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can’t see.
I say,
It’s in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
‘Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Maya Angelou

Sleep well Maya Angelou. May your soul Rest In Peace.

Kidnapped Nigerian Girls

5 Reasons Not to be a Side chick

1.
The very fact that you see yourself as a side chick means that you know that the man already has a wife or girlfriend. You are not his number one priority.

2.
You are intruding on another woman’s relationship and may possibly be the home wrecker who disrupt her life and that her children. That is not cool.

3.
You are the secret that his wife or girlfriend must never find out about. It is important for his secret to stay hidden.

4.
If his wife or girlfriend finds out about you, you then becomes his mistake. His explanation to his wife or girlfriend…he made a mistake. You are that mistake.

5.
Of course to save his relationship with the person who really matters he will say you meant nothing. So from being a secret, then a mistake you become nothing. Don’t be his nothing.

The bottom line is you need to respect yourself and respect the other woman’s relationship. If that is not enough remember Karma is a bitch and what you dish out you will get back in return.

Remembering our Fallen Soldiers

You went away not knowing
whether you would return,
Brave men and women,
You made the ultimate sacrifice,
By laying down your lives
to defend others.
Our fallen soldiers,
Our silent heroes,
Fathers, brothers, husbands, lovers,
Mothers, sisters and wives.
Though no longer here,
Your spirits run free,
On this day and always,
We salute thee.
