Dearest On-Line Family and Friends: Greetings to all of you!

 

Woo hoo it's Friday, yeah---yeah!   The only NOT SO good thing about this day (Friday) is the date - it's the 13th. (called Black Friday in my country---hmmmm!)  However apart from that, everything in my world is bright and rosy, and sparkles ohh so amazingly.

What an incredible week it has been, it started off with interesting discussions and the sharing of observations with colleagues; dinner on the town every night (a somewhat normal thing in our life, since I seem to hate cooking now that I am older); and a SUPER AWESOME Reggae show, with excellent performances by Reggae Super Star "Beres Hammond" (Singer/Songwriter/Producer), Grammy Award winning Reggae Band "Inner Circle" and "Culture" featuring "Kenyatta Hill."

Oh...by the way, the feedback I received from many of you regarding my last week's commentary on Life's Journey was so very diverse and interesting.  First and foremost, I want to thank you so much for all of them!

Truly, the comments were varied.  In fact, the most interesting were geared to me regarding the depiction in my commentary of working extremely hard on the infusion of ideas, and adventurous projects my husband "Todd" and I take on through our incredible life's journey.  Wow, It was perceived that I perform all the work and many of the comments were for me to "slow down;" "relax a bit;"  and motivational statements such as: "hang in there;" and "it will pay off in the end;" etc.  LOL, Oh dear NO, my on-line family and friends, even though I am extremely flattered about your concerns and advice, I certainly didn't mean to portray or convey such a thing, LOL.  I really intended on focusing on the diverseness of our roles, the belief we have in each other's ideas/concepts, and most importantly the TOGETHERNESS. 

Actually, the works I perform in the building process of our business are works I simply love.  Further, they are works I enjoy immensely, primarily because I love what I/we do, and I enjoy working with "Todd".  Nothing we do is a chore to me. Of course, as human beings we all become exhausted at times (LOL, after all we are not as young as we once were.)  However, the fascinating thing about it all is the aspect of working TOGETHER AS A TEAM, and I truly wanted to express the fact that walking along the road of this life's journey TOGETHER is somewhat challenging, but to me it is incredibly lovely and pristine. 

Thanks again for all your concerns, comments and most importantly advice!!!.



 

Now, back to the awesome Reggae show that took place this past week (I mentioned above.)  Hmmm, what can I say about "Beres Hammond" that I have not said before…well, he is truly a talent to behold!  First, l must say the venue "Rams Head Live" in Baltimore Maryland's Inner Harbor is a great concert spot; and the setting I love very much because it is cool, and has a somewhat intimate feel to it.  Additionally, the sound in this venue is always great.  So, from the start I was excited to attend this show. 

"Bares Hammond's" "For The Love Of It Tour" gets better year after year.  All the artists and bands were fantastic!  "Culture" featuring "Kenyata Hill" was captivating, as they performed a variety of their hit songs, and really “tore” things up when they performed their famous "Down in Jamaica (where Garvey comes from";) "Two Sevens Clash;" and "International Herb."  The crowd really loved it and showed their appreciation because it was clear "Culture" and "Kenyatta" have maintained the dynamic sound the late "Joseph Hill" brought to the group.  For me at times I would close my eyes and distinctly hear "Joseph Hill" singing instead of his son "Kenyatta" ~~ [their voices are truly similar.]  I wondered then how would "Kenyatta" ever be able to build his own identity and sound (if he so chooses.)  However, it's clear that it is NOT really necessary because he is doing quite well with his dads group "Culture" and most importantly, he is keeping his father's memory alive.

Up next was the popular Grammy Award winning band "Inner Circle" and they were outstanding!!!  We were especially pleased that their new lead singer is "Junior Jazz" (a brilliant musician we have been following for years, and a talented guitarist/singer/songwriter Todd has kept his eye on for some time now.)  The band ROCKED and performed many of their hits; actually many of the late great "Jacob Miller's" hits ("Jacob Miller" was the lead singer and an intricate part of "Inner Circle").  "Junior Jazz" and the band really paid an excellent tribute to Jacob by performing "Tired Fi Lick Weed in a Bush;" "Tenement Yard;" and several other hit songs.  The crowd was extremely pleased when they performed their famous "Sweet (A La La La La Long)", and they brought their set to a close with their famous ~ Number 1 ~ most played reggae song around the world "Bad Boys" (The Theme song for the hit TV show "Cops".)

The time arrived for the master performer "Beres Hammond" to bless us with his presence, and the crowd showed it with their thundering applause.  I truly adore the smooth, sweet, sensual voice of this lovers' rock style, conscious andLeon.jpg (9280 bytes) mesmerizing Jamaican singer.  Local radio host "Papa Wabe" [Host of Roots, Reggae, Culture on 88.9 FM WEAA - Saturdays from 10am to 1pm] introduced special surprise guest "Leon" (actor/singer/songwriter ~ "Leon Preston Robinson, IV".)  "Leon" entered the stage singing one of Beres's song, [ which I honestly don't recall NOW; because I was too excited about Beres's performance;]  soon thereafter, Leon did a fantastic job introducing Beres.

I simply cannot explain the intense emotions I feel hearing this man sing.  He touches my mind, body and soul…ALWAYS!  Beres along with his band the "Harmony House Musicians" and back up singers "The Harmony House Singers" ignited the stage and performed incredibly.  Beres performed a wide selection of his hit songs and many of my favorites effortlessly, and with sophistication: "Step Aside "; "Can't Stop A Man (from trying); " "Tempted To Touch; " "Falling In Love All Over Again; " "I feel  A Shiver; " "I Wish You Would Stay Longer; " "Come Back Home; " "Putting Up A Resistance; " "Pull Up The Vibes; " "Double Trouble; " "They Gonna Talk; " "What One Dance Can Do; " "No Disturb Sign;" and just about every one of his hits.  It was truly a glorious performance and one that had me "week in the knees"---LOL.  It seemed Beres did not want to leave his "family " as he called us, and thanked us for supporting him throughout the years.  His performance continued for well over an hour (an hour and a half to be exact), and I feel it was one of his best performances I have ever seen.  I must commend the band (Harmony House Musicians) for doing a great job making every song sound like the original recording.  In fact, our favorite musician in the Harmony House band is the guitarist; who is truly a great performer.   THIS SHOW WAS TRULY SUPER AWESOME!!!

I urge you to check out " Beres Hammond " when he comes to your town.  I'm not quite sure what towns he is scheduled to perform in; but look him up, get the details on his tour and check him out.  If you know and love his music you are in for a treat, and if you are not familiar with this fantastic singer perhaps you will fall in love with his lovely voice and great performance as many of us have.  



On our quest to living a more healthier life, including developing and strengthening a more healthy mind, body and soul, and the ultimate - improving our appearance; we have made some major changes.  Cutting out the unhealthy habits we had developed throughout life was not as hard as we thought it would be, especially the elimination of meat (specifically red meat)~~~[DONE!!!] Then, eating half a portion instead of a whole (per Oprah Winfrey's weight loss advice)~~~[DONE!!!]  And now the miles and miles of walking~~~[DOING IT CURRENTLY.]  So, this weekend the miles and miles of walking continues.  Certainly the hard work has been paying off, because we have accomplished many of the goals we have set, and we are positively working towards achieving all.  As a matter of fact, all our efforts have been successful; because Todd has lost quite a bit of weight, and has a few more pounds to lose to reach his goal. HOORAY~~~HOORAY~~~HOORAY for Todd (I am so proud of him).  I too have lost some, and is approaching my goal; so it's truly an exciting time in our life, especially living healthier and being in total control of everything now.



This weekend we are taking our annual trip to "Six Flags" in Maryland.  This yearly outing is always fun for us, because this park has a special place in Todd's heart ~ it was his first job during his teenage years.  He worked at the park for 2 years before it became Six Flags [It was a locally owned amusement park called "Wild World".]  Todd fondly recalls the fun filled summers working in this great environment.  He always tells me: "it is the only job I have enjoyed [ever] as a teen."

JPC1stWineFest-8.15.10-L.JPG (189593 bytes)On Sunday, we are heading to Crownsville, Maryland to the "1st Annual Caribbean Food and Wine Festival."  This event is guaranteed to be superb; because it is taking place at an excellent venue - - with a county like setting, but not far from the city.  JPC1stWineFest-8.15.10-Lb.JPG (139965 bytes)This is sure to be a wonderful outing for the whole family, so come out and prepare yourself to have fun.  The entertainment line up is awesome, because there will be lots of local bands, including Todd's favorite local artist "Tony Roy" and his band "Yawd Lynk".  The event features wine from Solomon's Island Winery, plus cheese.  Of course, there will be lots of food and crafts available.  Come out and join us for this "1st Annual Caribbean Wine and Food Festival" at Anne Arundel County Fairgrounds, 1450 Generals Hwy, Crownsville, MD; from 12:00 Noon to 9:00 pm.  PLEASE come out and feel the Caribbean Vibes, and feel free to bring your tents, chairs, blankets and a fun positive attitude.  NO COOLERS...PLEASE!!!   CLICK HERE FOR MORE DETAILS!

Greetings from the foundation of Harmony, Peace and Love. Today's Piece is entitled:

 

"ONE POWER"
What is your deepest belief? 
 
Do you live with doubt being uppermost in your mind, or do you believe in a universe which is fundamentally Good?
 
Can you look beyond the apparent discord and confusion which seem to plague our world, to see the good which often lies hidden in the center of the storm?
 
Do you keep your own counsel, or do you have to depend on the opinions of your group?
 
Do you keep finding fault with others so that you can hold on to the illusion of always being the hero in your stories?
 
Again I ask you my friend, what is your deepest belief?
 
If you agree that you do believe in something that is greater than you , however you may call this something, then do you still blame something outside of yourself for the ungodly ways in which we treat our brothers and sisters?
 
Where does the responsibility lie for the choices which we make in our lives?
 
Let us choose whom and what we shall serve in this power filled 
Now, this only unfolding moment in which we have the ability to act. 
 
It is not always easy to do what is good, but it is infinitely possible. 
 
We can choose to still love the ones who revile us in our absence, saying things which have no bearing on the truth; we can still love the ones who hold themselves to be superior by virtue of the few material possessions, rather than by the ignorance which fuels their arrogance; we can still choose to love those who cannot see beyond the appearance, to the spirit of life which performs miracles in our presence at every moment.
 
We can choose to remember that whatever we choose, we are always right, at least to ourselves. As a man or woman thinks, so is he or she. 
 
Whom do you choose to serve my friend?
 
Hollis Lashley,(c) 2010.
