Tell Him I Said Hello

18 Mar

Screen Shot 2018-03-03 at 8.45.43 AM

Look into his eyes
When you speak my name.
Maybe there’s a spark to start another flame.
Do I love him?
Don’t say yes or no
If he should ask you.
But he won’t I know,
Cause it’s all over and forgotten.
Just tell him I said hello.

Song: Tell Him I Said Hello

Written by Jack Canning and Bill Hegner

And we’re makin’ plans.

“You can do anything you want to do.  What is rare is this actual wanting to do a certain thing:  wanting it so much that you are practically blind to other things, that nothing else will satisfy you…I know I have said a lot when I say, ‘You can do anything you want to do.’  But I mean it…Blunder ahead with your personal view…The real work of art is the result of a magnificent struggle.” 

Robert Henri, painter

16 Oct

“Put on your shield and armor when you enter your workplace. Everyone should learn how to create a psychic shield. Imagine that you are surrounded by an outer shell that is made of a solid material —so strong that nothing can get through to hurt you. Some people prefer to imagine a protective golden light, but I think the solid shield is stronger. Take two or three minutes to put on your shield, every day, before you enter the workplace.” 

—Cathy Goodwin, Ph.D.
