Have you seen or heard of the “The Zimmers” singing & performing in Britain’s Got Talent 2012 audition? If not, you’re in for an unexpected surprise, as “these delicate looking old folk will give a very surprising performance that will have you in stitches.
“A very good performance that has a bit of humor and a lot of fun”!
Awesome, spirited & entertaining . . . Standing ovation! So exciting . . . energising . . . exhilarating . . . enthusiastic . . . fantastic than when they were really young!
“Noble is brilliantly pioneering the new film-making . . . incisive analysis, compelling sound and footage, fearless and independent reporting, and the aggregation of the best information out there into powerful, educational and free online feature films – all on a shoestring budget.
His filmseducate and inform while building the movements needed for real change at the grassroots. Noble’s films are dedicated to democracy; they fan the flames of non-violent, people-powered revolution.”
US democracy is but a name . . . globally it’s going crazy!
Usually in the quiet hours of the morning or late into the night (or rather in the unholy hours of the night), I would have my quiet moments, solitude . . . moments to ponder & contemplate. Very often too when I’m having the “writer’s block” . . . lacking inspiration to write, I would look on to Perth City’s lights from my humble dwelling place . . . and there as with the sparkle of city’s lights, ideas begin to flow & inspiration grow.
This morning was different. At about 6.00, I received this beautiful email from a dear old friend “Roger” (his nick name known only to me) whom I joyfully caught up with after an absence of a lapse of over 40 years. I thought that rather than forwarding it through the usual emailing channel, I could share this with friends far & wide, distant or near, old or new, young & old, male or female in my WordPress blog.
As with the golden sun in the evening setting
There’s no assurance of the rising in the dawn awakening!
May I suggest that as you read every line, ponder deep & hard, memorise & internalise as with all the good years of your life . .
TOMORROW is NEVER PROMISED . . .
One day a woman’s husband died, and on that clear, cold morning, in the warmth of their bedroom, the wife was struck with the pain of learning that sometimes there isn’t “anymore”. No more hugs, no more special moments to celebrate together, no more phone calls just to chat, no more “just one minute.” Sometimes, what we care about the most gets all used up and goes away, never to return before we can say good-bye, say “I love you.”
So while we have it, it’s best we love it, care for it, fix it when it’s broken and heal it when it’s sick. This is true for marriage . . . And old cars . . . And children with bad report cards, and dogs with bad hips, and aging parents and grandparents. We keep them because they are worth it, because we are worth it.
Some things we keep — like a best friend who moved away or a sister-in-law after divorce. There are just some things that make us happy, no matter what.
Life is important, like people we know who are special. And so, we keep them close!
I received this from someone who thought I was a ‘keeper’! Then I sent it to the people I think of in the same way . . . Now it’s your turn to send this to all those people who are “keepers” in your life, including the person who sent it, if you feel that way. Suppose one morning you never wake up, do all your friends know you love them?
I was thinking . . . I could die today, tomorrow or next week, and I wondered if I had any wounds needing to be healed, friendships that needed rekindling or three words needing to be said.
Let every one of your friends know you love them. Even if you think they don’t love you back, you would be amazed at what those three little words and a smile Jcan do. And just in case I’m gone tomorrow.
