Heaven is under our feet as
well as over our heads.

Henry David Thoreau

Love the trees until their
leaves fall off, then encourage
them to try again next year.

Every man has his secret sorrows
which the world knows not; and often
times we call a man cold when he is
only sad.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

Robert Frost

The best remedy for those who
are afraid, lonely or unhappy
is to go outside, somewhere
where they can be quite alone
with the heavens, nature and
God. Because only then does
one feel that all is as it should
be and that God wishes to see
people happy, amidst the
simple beauty of nature. As
longs as this exists, and it
certainly always will, I know
that then there will always be
comfort for every sorrow,
whatever the circumstances
may be. And I firmly believe
that nature brings solace in
all troubles.

Anne Frank

Those who contemplate the
beauty of the earth find
reserves of strength that will
endure as long as life lasts.
There is something infinitely
healing in the repeated
refrains of nature — the
assurance that dawn comes
after night, and spring after
winter.

Rachel Carson

Adopt the pace of nature: her
secret is patience.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Brown County State Park, Indiana

Our task must be to free
ourselves… by widening our
circle of compassion to
embrace all living creatures
and the whole of nature and
it’s beauty.

Albert Einstein

And then there are the times
when the wolves are silent
and the moon is howling.

George Carlin

Everybody needs beauty as
well as bread, places to play
in and pray in, where nature
may heal and give strength to
body and soul.

I think having land and not
ruining it is the most
beautiful art that anybody
could ever want.

Pinky Ponders: The Power of Music


The music scene is abuzz about the release of TLC’s biopic, Crazy Sexy Cool. Reviews call it a truly, authentic interpretation of the group’s struggles and victories throughout the past 20 years.

This film captures the heart of their style (and grace) throughout the ups and downs they faced.

The most memorable of those struggles was when Lisa “Left Eye Lopez”, an integral part of their trio was tragically killed in an accident. I still remember when it happened — it was such a shock. Sudden and unexpected.

I also remember watching the remaining two Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas suffer a deep loss that we as fans could only imagine what it felt like. To be going so strong and then have it all come to a screeching halt..

We could only view them as outsiders, but that doesn’t mean we didn’t feel the heartbreak.

Chasing Waterfalls

Pinky wonders — Why do we mourn for performers, musicians in particular? We’ve never met them, spoken to them, but yet, we feel like they’re a part of us.

They open themselves up through their music and lyrics.

They bare their souls to us. 

We believe that we understand their pain, their joy and everything in between — we feel it, what they feel because music is just that powerful.

& we subconsciously appreciate this “peek” into the expression of their souls.

TLC Lives on
If you’re a TLC fan, like Pinky — they just released (on Oct.15th,2013) a “Greatest Hits” CD 20  that features classics like Waterfalls, Scrubs and Creep PLUS, brand new tracks like Meant to be featuring T-Boz and Chilli. The new songs are reminiscent of their self-defined style that helped them rise to fame 20 years ago.

Check out this song, “Meant to be” written by Ne-yo (one of two previously unreleased songs on their 20 album) performed by T-Boz and Chilli.

Oh-Bla-Di Oh-Bla-Da

I think that if I had been alive when John Lennon was shot — it would have been a devastating day. I love the Beatles. It’s probably best I wasn’t born in the 50’s and a teenager in the 60’s. Pretty sure I would’ve been a tad bit obsessed with these Legends.

Gone Too Soon

But the singer that most struck me when she died was probably Aaliyah. It seemed that she had only gotten started. She died so suddenly, she was so talented and beautiful and had an amazing future in front of her. I love this song, “Rock the Boat”. Try Again, One in a Million, I Miss You and All I Need.

I’d love to hear your thoughts. Thank you so much for reading!

Good night, good afternoon and good morning, wherever you are : ).
