Come On, Come Out

A Fine Frenzy, the song is called Come on, Come Out. I like her voice, the lyrics to her songs, and the way she plays.

Others see you as someone they should "handle with care." You're seen as vain, self-centered, and who is extremely dominant. Others may admire you, wishing they could be more like you, but don't always trust you, hesitating to become too deeply involved with you.

51 TO 60 POINTS:

Others see you as an exciting, highly volatile, rather impulsive personality; a natural leader, who's quickto make decisions, though not always the right ones. They see you as bold and adventuresome, someone who will try anything once; someone who takes chances and enjoys an adventure. They enjoy being in your company because of the excitement you radiate

41 TO 50 POINTS:

< BR>Others see you as fresh, lively, charming, amusing, practical, and always interesting; someone who's constantly in the center of attention, but sufficiently well-balanced not to let it go to their head. They also see you as kind, considerate, and understanding; someone who'll always cheer them up and help them out.

31 TO 40 POINTS:

Others see you as sensible, cautious, careful &practical. They see you as clever, gifted, or talented, but modest. Not a person who makes friends too quickly or easily, but someone who's extremely loyal to friends you do make, and who expects the same loyalty in return. Those who really get to know you, realize it takes a lot to shake your trust in your friends, but equally that it takes you a long time to get over if that trust is ever broken.

21 TO 30 POINTS:

Your friends see you as painstaking and fussy. They see you as very cautious, extremely careful, a slow and steady plodder. It would really surprise them if you ever did something impulsively, or on the spur of the moment; expecting you to examine everything carefully from every angle, and then, usually decide against it. They think this reaction is caused partly by your careful nature.


People think you are shy, nervous, and indecisive, someone who needs looking after, who always wants someone else to make the decisions, &who doesn't want to get involved with anyone or anything! They see you as a worrier who always sees problems that don't exist. Some people think you're boring. Only those who know you well ~ know that you aren't.

Now forward this to others,
and put your score in the subject box of your e-mail,
like this:

I am thinking about my sisters, both ones that I am bonded with by blood and the ones that we are only bonded by heart and soul. Victoria, Joy Renea, Carrilee, Amber Dawn, and Amber May. I am so glad that you are all in my life and I am blessed to know you all.

For there is no friend like a sister
In calm or stormy weather;
To cheer one on the tedious way,
To fetch one if one goes astray,
To lift one if one totters down,
To strengthen whilst one stands.
Christina Rossetti

You should never look down on a sister except to pick her up.


Sisters don't need words.

They have perfected a language of snarls and smiles

and frowns and winks

- expressions of shocked surprise

and incredulity and disbelief.

Sniffs and snorts and gasps and sighs

- that can undermine

any tale you're telling.

Pam Brown

Sisters are different. They heard the sobbing in the darkness.

They lived through all your triumphs, all your favorites,

all your loves and losses. They have no delusions.

They lived with you too long.

And so, when you achieve some victory, friends are delighted -

but sisters hold your hands in silence and shine with happiness.

For they know the cost.

Pam Brown

Salvador Dali

My friend Amber and I were talking today about metamorphis' and Salvador Dali paintings. I couldn't remember what his paintings looked like, Rick, an old friend had a book of his paintings and I remembered that, but couldn't visualize just one. I enjoy his art, I discovered. I like the music that is playing along with the art. My two favorites are the lady looking out the window at the ocean and the one where there is a butterfly and a devil in the corner. It brought out a certain creativity inside of me. Some of his paintings depict Christ and such, which is so intriguing to me, the images he paints. I would have enjoyed talking to him, to see what he was thinking or dreaming. Since, some of his paintings look like they come from dreams.

It's A Wonderful World

My friend Amber's youngest boy Cullen singing It's A Wonderful World, he has autism, but his memory and showmanship is amazing. He loves to draw, sing, recite movie lines, and all sorts of things. He is a great kid.

Wake Up Girl!

Another great song from Pat Benatar that I have a lot of recognition to.

Do you like the way it feels when you get hurt?
Maybe you should take a long hard look at your self-worth
There's an emptiness inside
It started many years ago
You always try to fill it up
It's a familiar place you go
One day you'll just have to wake up, girl


You know you got a lot to learn
You've got to do it for yourself
Find your own direction, don't rely on someone else
You got to know it in your heart
You've got to build it up with love, it isn't hard to rise above
Wake up, you don't wanna make up
You've got to do it for yourself

I know it feels sometimes that loneliness is worse
And with every change there comes a melancholy search
Now you can walk away from this
It doesn't have to bring you down
Have faith in destiny you what goes around, comes around
You don't have to stay and take it, girl


Got nowhere to run
Got nowhere to hide
These changes will come if you just open your eyes
Got nowhere to run
Got nowhere to hide

You gotta do it for yourself
You gotta know it in your heart
It isn't hard to rise above

I saw this tonight, while researching forgiveness. I liked it's music and message.

Sunday Serenity #11

This is a song on Pat Benatar album Innamorta and this song I have been playing around for a week and it has helped me feel forgiveness towards Monte and what has happened between him and I. The only part is, he wasn't a lover, he was a dear friend. The part where she says, I want to replace you with forgiveness brought tears to my eyes, because I have to forgive him and myself. I wish him nothing but the best and I hope he is truly happy. I will always care and wish him nothing but the best always.

Pat Benatar

I walk around pretending you were never here, but the smell of you is everywhere. I ache so bad for you I want to shed my skin. Trying to keep my thoughts from turning into you.
I'm not angry anymore. I'm not angry. I"m not angry anymore.

There is no wound as deep as a lover's betrayal. NO touch as tender as your lovers hand . You were so generous with both that I nearly died. Took all my dignity until there was nothing left inside. I'm not angry anymore, i'm not angry, I"m not angry anymore.

I just want to forget you, I just want to erase you, and replace you with forgiveness. I"m not angry anymore, i'm not angry, i'm not angry anymore.

YOu were so generous with both that i nearly died, I'm not angry anymore, i'm not angry, I'm not angry anymore. I just want to forget you and replace you with forgiveness. I'm not angry anymore. I'm not angry anymore.

The Lion Sleeps Tonight
