And now, the end is here And so I face the final curtain My friend, I’ll say it clear I’ll state my case, of which I’m certain I’ve lived a life that’s full I traveled each and ev’ry highway And more, much more than this, I did it my way Regrets, I’ve had a few But then again, too few to mention I did what I had to do and saw it through without exemption I planned each charted course, each careful step along the byway And more, much more than this, I did it my way Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew When I bit off more than I could chew But through it all, when there was doubt I ate it up and spit it out I faced it all and I stood tall and did it my way I’ve loved, I’ve laughed and cried I’ve had my fill, my share of losing And now, as tears subside, I find it all so amusing To think I did all that And may I say, not in a shy way, “Oh, no, oh, no, not me, I did it my way” For what is a man, what has he got? If not himself, then he has naught To say the things he truly feels and not the words of one who kneels The record shows I took the blows and did it my way Yes, it was my way Writer(s): Robert Williams, Jerry N.

As I watched Good Morning America today, a professor from Harvard says she has proof that the Master Jesus was married. To Mary Magdelene who historians say was a prostitute at one point in her life. Hmm interesting theory, interesting concept this is as we meditate on this. No matter what our thoughts, our theology about the Jesus, he was amazing. Yet, he loved the underdog. He loved the ones who every one else scorned. Remember, that even as the Roman soldiers hung him, taunted him, criticized, mocked him, he turned to the thief next to him, and honored him. People just plain didn’t like the way the man, the prophet Jesus did things. He went against ALL the rules for gosh sake! How did he dare? He took mud, put it on the blind man’s eyes, so he could see! We know of course through science know that the mud from the River Nile has properties of healing through the minerals, vitamins etc, but in that era, for the Jesus to know this scared people. Sometimes people can’t see our hearts. Looking for actions that fit the norm, stay in the box, see, we don’t all of us work that way. Yet, here we are, still alive, still kicking, still moving toward our dreams. Once a woman told me that I was an abomination to her god. I said I’m sorry you feel that way, but yesterday I helped the police find a runaway teenager. If that is evil, than so be it. Perhaps I don’t fit the norm, but my heart is what the Most High of the universe, the spiritual powers that be see. So as we go through our life, we follow our path, we need to do it, My way.
Animal totems: Hummingbird: Yesterday in research for my new book, Deb’s Den of animal totems: from then to Now , I was reading about the mighty hummingbird. I say mighty because even though he is quite small, his medicine teaches us he helps the environment keep clean, pollenated to keep the whole eco system working. This totem reminds us that each of us is important to the world, to this lifetime, to this day. Yet we, as people, don’t understand this importance. I read that the red dye coloring we use to tint the sugar water to set out to feed them is actually deadly to them, I won’t be using it again. So hummingbird totem reminds us that following nature’s way, natural herbal means is always best for the greater good.
