Me on my Nanny’s Henry F Miller piano she brought with her from Florida to California when she can to live with us when I was 9 years old. Little would I know how that piano would become my best friend.
I haven’t played this song for some time since I had my digital Roland 88 keyboard with incredible sampled sounds of a full size concert grand on it. Like many things, it was sold when moved to Las Vegas. I have often thought of selling this other couch nobody ever sits on and getting a new 88 keyed awesome sampled digital piano with weighed keys. I would have way more FUN with it.
My upright rosewood grand with the dynamic range of a medium size grand piano came with me and sits awaiting my eager hands to play that very song Baby Grand that is the reason I bought the score you see in the picture.

You can make the difference in subtle and very profound ways, without even knowing it in another person’s life.
The next time you really listen to your intuition or inner voice as I call it, give this some true thought:
Think about someone you know who could use your expertise about skill, a new trade, or about a job that you’ve done for many years. Think about something very easy for you but hard for them. Step up to the plate in The Game of Life and offer to make their path a little smoother and a little easier.
If you know someone who is building a website or a blog, and you happen to be a master at it, show them how to do it just because you can. Don’t look for money or for compensation- but just do it because it makes you feel like you made a difference and it’s rewarding.
In life, you don’t have to make money on everything, but rather to make the difference and to be that extra spoke and wheel it makes that car run, or to mentor another and know from that moment on, the person you’re mentoring will have opportunities unveiled because of your actions is highly rewarding and empowering .
Next, find someone who looks really downtrodden, sitting all alone and say something to that person. Say something that’s 100% genuine AND LETS THEM KNOW THEY MATTER and that you know that they‘re not indivisible. To raise someone’s self-esteem and to make them aware of their true potential, to me, is one of the greatest satisfaction on the face of the Earth. It’s not just that one instance that is so intrinsic or special, but the POWERADE of that one instance leading to a chain reaction in a lifetime of change for that human being.
I know Dr. Leo Buscaglia had said in his fabulous book called LOVE, that I highly recommend, that I read in 1984 when I was in college that:
“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, smile, a kind word, a listening ear. An honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”
(I have the magnet on my fridge and I read it all the time of the power that every individual has to make an impact on other people’s lives.)
It is the ittle things in life like that make it special, for not just yourself but for them as well because they create that wonderful thing called “Triple Win”- I win, um, and Society wins. Just imagine that from moment Society wins period That’s a concept was introduced to me in the Master’s certification program at Chapman University back in 1997.
Here on March 12th 2017, when all of our clocks for fast-forwarded an hour due to daylight savings time, fast forward the result of your positive actions before you do them and see the big picture of your great works before you do them. Be a Visionary. Be a catalyst for positive change on a intimate, one-on-one basis and in your community too.
You be the huge difference in someone’s life and build some new friendships and bonds that will last a lifetime from your initiative.

The best things in life really are free…
Like crisp, clean ocean breezes…
A baby‘s smile…
The morning serenade of a bird‘s song…
Beautiful people whose soul‘s shine like stars…
And beautiful natural settings like this one of The Huntington Beach Pier in Orange County, CA.

I accidentally erased the link that was on here going to a blog post called “Stages of Change”, and prior to finding the blog post in the wee hours this morning, I had the idea to write this.
I thought the entire story would be written in an hour or by about 3 p.m. now yesterday afternoon, Las Vegas, NV time. It’s 4:00 a.m. February 28th, 2017 and with a Pentatonix Concert on Neflix playing, I have been embellishing the post with more images that I feel tell part of the story too and modifying what I wrote.
I hope you will enjoy it. Yesterday was my day to “Get Absorbed in The News Day” writing commentaries. I am an empath in many ways, and can only handle hearing about the news of the world every few days. I would never get anything done if I did otherwise. All I have to do is run into one god-forsaken story about Trump, who’s Triple loser in my book, especially after hearing he made fun of a disabled person. Anyone that would make fun of any kind of disabled person is a pathetic human being. Trump’s animalistic, racist and self demeaning behavior boggles my mind. Yes, I know he tries to demean other people but all he succeeds and doing it’s just lowers himself to increasing new levels of mediocrity. I want him impeached to preserve the integrity of the United States as an American citizen. He simply makes us look bad in the eyes of other nations.
Enough of my political view points, that were not in the original post, but I don’t stand alone in my feelings.
One of my golden rules in life is to be genuine and totally authentic. People respect that. When it comes to followers and buying followers I don’t . All mine are real and represent real, living, breathing , wonderful people who I have impressed somehow, or I’ve inspired, or empowered, made laugh, entertained, or they look forward to something that I write, my original images, or they like just me in general and my persona. My followers are real people who follow me because I am REAL and put on no pretenses. Anything other than that is just fake in my book, and I’m working on two books currently.
I get asked all the time you want to buy some followers they say why? I have my own real ones from hard work writing what I feel is good content. I think any industry they call that organic. As a writer I call it smart because it’s how I know what people LIKE. IF everything is fake and contrived, it doesn’t reflect anything real but it’s just a mere illusion of popularity
When ever I see Trump’s face, one word comes to mind- impeachment. I sincerely hope that happens so the disasters and hate crimes nationwide he instigated can end. The United States needs to think of our progress rather than regression. I wish Trump wasn’t really and instead a really bad nightmare , nut we all wake up and he’s still there unfortunately!
Like many of my stories, posts and pictures; they are going through a creative evolutionary process, contantly changing or improving, like their creator me! We all change everyday just a little bit, even though we can’t see the changes, we still do. The great thing about that is it we all have a say in how we change, and in what ways we change. You just have to want to change then catapult your want with action to make it a reality.

Just like the seasons are now changing from winter to spring, this article is changing with every word I write.
I hope the finished product has you look at not only me in a new way, but life in general in a new way and directs you to a newfound realization of the power you possess in it.
Embrace change. It us the only constant in life. Those who do the best in life ADAPT.
Much like a surfer on a surfboard riding the wave, those that master the “Art of Living”, ride the wave called LIFE. We can learn from the quick reflexes of the surfer, adjusting what we do in correlation to what’s the way was coming our way.

When I was younger I hadn’t discovered my full potential yet and didn’t see the world from a big picture vantage point yet. That was to be uncovered and made visible over time. I was a very sick, misunderstood kid that grew up in the 60’s, at a time before the time “bullying” was invented or before people cared to do something about it at least.
My nanny came to live with us when I was nine, the same age I was diagnosed with epilepsy. The piano she brought with her would soon become my best friend. It took until high school at 14 to be invented for me to know what size your freedom was. Until the time kids were just too mean spirited stupid to ever give me a chance as human being, let alone as a friend. I wrote music on that Henry Ford. Miller piano and read lots of cookbooks and passed the time figuring out what I was going to make and cook, analyzing recipes as though it were a novel envisioning what I’d make when I grew up and the parties that I would have and how awesome it would be…….

Every day pray and meditate as your 1st thing in the day. Connect with your Omnipotent Power of the Universe asking for Wisdom and Guidance. I AM CHISTIAN BAPTIZED CATHOLIC, BUT I AM SPIRITUAL IN NATURE. No matter what your faith, place that part of you first and you cannot be steered wrong.

Light an aromatherapy candle and find out how you can tap into what’s inside your SOUL.
I have always found lighting a candle is a way to connect to a hidden, very special light planted in my soul.
Chances are, if you try it, you will discover it too.
Before you know it, when you start connecting with your Spiritual Source, you’ll find a light that you can protect outward at the world, and the world will be brighter as result of it. If your light shines brilliantly it’s own special way, the light will never go away as long as the World Turns. If you bring something to the world nobody has ever seen before that has great merit, you’ll be memorable enough that your memory and good you did will “shine” like the aurora borealis.
The older I get the more I focus on the good I can give rather than what I can get and options and opportunities open like flowers in the Spring.

Keep your focus on what matters.
Don’t do something just because everybody else is.
Have your own viewpoints and own them.

Remember: “With a pen, paper and an idea, I have the world!”
Writing is a way you can connect with your innermost self, your hopes and dreams unfurl as you hold that pen in your hand, or as you type. Whichever method helps you connect better and be more prolific, do it!
Go after what you really want in life early and do what you, and nobody else was meant to do.

Keep Supporters of Your Dreams Close To You

Keep Negative and Hurtful People Away From You. You owe it to yourself to have a happy and productive life. Negative people are like a ball and chain who get their enjoyment from dragging you down because they don’t have the initiative, talent or ideas that you do. Repel them like water beads on Vaseline.

Water the Garden of Your Dreams Daily by working on each Project.
Listen to your inner voice, or intuition because it is always right.
Take time for your routine that keeps you most healthy.
If music is a passion of yours, sing a song or put some music out in the universe making your contribution to making a more harmonious world.

Life is a balancing act composed of spiritual time, personal time, work time, leisure time and whatever other classifications you when to add.
Take time to do self-introspection so you can see how far you’ve come and how far you’ve gone to appreciate Where You Are now.
Mentor others so you can help others carry the torch and do things easier than you once did.
Donate your time then to philanthropic things to give back to the world and it will give you more back than you ever dreamed.
Make the most of where you are now. Use the tools you have now, they don’t have to be the best tools but they’re the tools we can afford and use them maximize them and save up for whatever equipment you need to do your job well.
Don’t take the first no for an answer you hear. If you’re not getting what you want with your company go to the corporate level and I guarantee you’ll get what you want.
Aim for your goals like a GPS guidance system guides a Delta rocket to outer space
I hope you have reading this as much as I have enjoyed sharing my 55 year old wisdom and 20 year old heart with you!
Maybe God had in mind me destroying the original post, so I could write this one which is my own, and my brainchild.
