Tears, Scissors and a New Jouney

Several years ago, I was able to see Ray Charles live at the House of Blues in Chicago. Tears trickled down my cheeks... as his music, his voice, his sound, his vibration reached right into my chest and rattled my very being. I could feel his sounds throughout my entire body and I find it difficult to find words to describe how it felt.

I had that feeling again while listening to the Celtic Woman on You Tube... so I present to you Mairead of Celtic Woman. If one were deaf, I believe they could watch her and feel the music she creates. If one were blind, I believe that the ears would let you see what a powerful violinist she is.


I watched her...spinning, dipping, leaping, twisting and grinning... so very beautiful.

My stride is quite large and through my employment, I am constantly moving...leaving my hair in a tangled mess tucked behind my ears.

I got out my scissors. With a whack-whack here and a whack-whack there...and another whack here to fix that a whack there....

I realize now that I have the same haircut I had when I was five... just a little bit longer.

Ah...the circle...

dee...hmmm, I wonder if you are talking about Stevie Wonder or if you are talking about Stevie Ray Vaughan?

Mel...lol, she is wonderful, isn't she? Watching her flit around like a wild butterfly is hypnotizing & invigorating. Lol, she is what led me to whacking my hair. I messed up a tad bit, lol, which would explain why I suddenly have bangs. ;)

Orhan...Don't let that picture fool you! I was quite defiant as a young one.

I saw the Celtic Women in concert a few years ago. The music takes you away.

skinnylittlesister said...

Maithri...Wow! I am so glad you are going to get to go see Stevie Wonder, his music transcends all & I wouldn't be surprised if you closed your eyes, if a tear touched your cheek too!

Sister Sing...Lol, yes... the dogs are about to start talking to me...'Mom, put the scissors down' ;) ILYSVM

CEO...Glad you enjoyed Monty & Congrats to you, my friend. May the positive energy be contagious!

Wilsons...Hahahaha....I thought of you when I took that last little whack! I haven't any pictures, but the one from when I was five is a good indicator...hahahaha.

Wreggie...Oh! You! I know it must have been like being in an spellbound trance! To me, Celtic Women sound like Angels. They were here last year, but I am afraid their tickets were wayyyyy out of my league. Lol, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying what I can! They are truly lifting for the spirit....
