4. Love Song by Elton John and Lesley Duncan, a duet from the album Tumbleweeds:

Last edited Sat Dec 28, 2013, 06:42 PM - Edit history (1)



Enjoy the music and the message:

Love Song

Words I have to say may well be simple
But they're true
Until you give your love
There's nothing more that we can do

Love is the opening door
Love is what we came here for
No one could offer you more
Do you know what I mean?
Have your eyes really seen?

You say,
"It's very hard to leave behind the life we knew."
There's no other way
And now it's really up to you

'Cause love is the key we must turn
And truth is the flame we must burn
Freedom - the lesson we must learn
Do you know what i mean?
Have your eyes really seen?

La la la la la la
La la la la la la

Love is the opening door
Love is what we came here for
No one would offer you more
Do you know what I mean?
Have your eyes really seen?

Do you know what I mean?
Have your eyes really seen?

Love is the opening door
Love is what we came here for
No one would offer you more

Do you know what I mean?
Have your eyes really seen?


I believe Equality only springs from one place, which is the heart that loves others as itself. We must be willing to open our hearts to all humanity.

If one cannot bring oneself to give to others what one wants for oneself, or if we cannot unite to do the same thing, inequality will destroy our world.

We are all together on a small planet surrounded by an uncaring environment we cannot live in. This is home. We have been given a great gift to be here for a while and be a part of this moment in space and time.

6. I started to hear the first vid and got called away

and when I came back.. it was Elton John and Lesley Duncan.. I do like this one better! It's the perfect song for what you're saying, fresh~

And, with "Love Song" and your words.. I'm all Verklempt..

"I believe Equality only springs from one place, which is the heart that loves others as itself. We must be willing to open our hearts to all humanity.

If one cannot bring oneself to give to others what one wants for oneself, or of we cannot unite to do the same thing, inequality will destroy our world.

We are all together on a small planet surrounded by environment we cannot live in and have been given a great gift to be here for a while and be part of it."


Beautifully stated, freshwest

7. Except in reading the excerpt, I had to correct it! Here it is for you:

Ah, yes, much better. I've been so busy lately and have so much to look forward. I'm glad you had your son with you to help to post pictures and enjoy some time together for the holidays. See you in a little bit.

I had precious gifts from my daughter in Oregon too.. and wonderful conversations with her.

My granddaughter's 14th birthday is today so I'll be calling Portland later tonight.. she has a tennis tournament today. They're the very essence of "Let's Move!"

11. A wider spectrum, she~


The ENTIRE inauguration celebrations featuring PBO’s being sworn in for the 2nd time, with a crowd of over 800K – and an electric atmosphere in D.C. all weekend long thru the official church service on Wednesday, defying media’s silly predictions of “lack of enthusiasm” this time around.

13. I read that Robin Roberts came out today. It's no longer necessarily fatal to one's career

thanks in part to the atmosphere promoted by President Obama (and many others). I'm glad of that, partly because I don't see how there could be a nicer person than Robin. I was so concerned during her long illness. She's done so much good for people.
