Let’s Talk

talk.gifThe weekend has been nigh and the hours have been great
for the most part, I’ve maintained a smile on my face.

Life is a race but I don’t think it’s about being swift,
more than about what you do, what you’re into and who you do it with.

You know?
Today Let’s Talk and exchange the blunt info.

Like, what’s going on in your life? Are you making positive strides?
Is your health, diet and fitness, shaking out to be alright?

Do you have a plight that you would love to voice?
Never settle for anything – you deserve a choice.

Especially within intelligent legislation as it pertains to health care… just an off the cuff mention.
I’m not down with the “repeal and replace,” as much as I’d like to talk about a SINGLE PAYER system.

Our health is in need of care and is nothing at which to squawk,
So yeah, today I’m feeling intimate, give me a minute and Let’s Talk.

Today I was up early, but much too early to rise,
I waited for the sun to break through the clear AZ skies.

Once it broke, I pulled it together and hit the road
a day of leisure will be my unfold.

I have writes to create and film editing — what a fun day.
The remainder of my desks chambers will have to wait until Monday.

Right now, I’m more interested in you, the weather and the GOOD that you’re farming.
I also wanted to know what are your thoughts on Global Warming?

I want to make sure that you’re still focused on tomorrow and constructively making lays.
I want to make sure you secure your future — stack chips for tomorrow (plan not to borrow) today.

These are notes that I have for myself on sticky notes and always on mind.
Let’s Talk, compare notes, look at our interests and plan our votes —
I’m curious to learn your finds.

When I decided to chat it up today I was duly thinking of Joan Rivers’ historical indention,
She used to do a CAN WE TALK routine that surely helped me to title THIS rendition.



Let’s Talk about being bold, being fierce, being raw…
Let’s Talk about congress, bills and laws.

What do WE really want, y’all?
Our country is looking funky to the rest of the world, y’all.

We could talk about how we got here and how we can reverse what we’ve put into action.
I think it’s time we take these discussions seriously. Child, serious talk is in fashion.

Clothe yourself with knowledge and learn what the heck is going on.
The PROTESTS in the streets are thoughtfully planned to go long.


Washington Post – Earth Day 2017

Let’s Talk about your interests and where you stand on the EPA.
Let’s Talk about how bills have been signed to roll EARTH HELP protections away.

A few days ago was EARTH DAY and so many held signs, shoulder to shoulder in the streets
Across the world, there was man, woman, boy and girl, bearing weather – be it cold or heat

To make a point:
420 weekend was less about smoking a joint

and more about coming together across the worlds lands and seas
to say Earth deserves to be loved. A demand shown by WE.

Let’s Talk about what we mean more often, we deserve to be heard,

Open to hearing your point of view. Communication rules the nation. WORD.

So what’s on your mind?

The EYES have it

cosmetic surgeryWell, you don’t like this and you don’t like that about your physical appearance.  So we’ve heard and thanks to cosmetic surgery you can change whatever you want to change about yourself.

I understand bodily imperfections – we’ve all got ’em. My love handles get shafted on the love though. It’s true. When I feel like they’re too visible, I’m quick to bind them in a girdle. It’s a temporary solution – sure, but it smooths out the tell-tale signs of all the candy that I’ve consumed since…

Wait a minute! This piece isn’t about me. lol! 😉  This piece is about permanent cosmetic solutions that often prove not to be “solutions” after all. And as for the girdle… well, we’re cool.

The EYES have it

So I was watching HOT TOPICS on The View yesterday and Renee Zellwegers face came up. I’m a fan of Renee’s and prior to seeing her face on The View I had noticed Yahoo OMG advertisements had been popping up here and there (online) with her picture on it. I would always dismiss the bait and decline to check it out, because Renee is a sweetheart and I’m still in love with her since Jerry McGuire, Bridget Jones’ Diary, and Cold Mountain.  I can’t seem to get enough of her Texas friendly nature, squinty eyes and cooky smile, but recent photos reveal that I have indeed had my fill. The squinty eyes are gone.

Some are questioning if she’s had plastic surgery(s)? And maybe she has, but how can we be certain that she wouldn’t have aged into wider eyes naturally? After all, that’s the only thing that changed. I think…

Speaking of “eyes” have you heard of that cosmetic procedure than can change the color of your iris from brown to blue? While researching premium eye drops (because I was only looking to knock out the tired red), I found this:


The EYES have itobviously, and are the first thing people see
when you’re walking down the boulevard or the red carpet on TV.

Now I rather like my eyes. Heck no – I love them truly!
They help me keep things in focus, thus I’m walking straight – duly.

My eyes are important to me, beyond vanity or questionable scandal.
My eyes are what helped me find a good girdle to bind these love handles.

I don’t want anyone telling me what I can’t wear. And don’t tell me it’s out of line.
So to the women that choose to go under the knife – it’s her prerogative and I am fine.

If it alters their career course – surely they knew the possibility was chancing.
We all remember Jennifer Grays story – she played Baby in Dirty Dancing.

Jennifer had a distinctive nose – it set her apart and we thought she was cute
She chose to do a nip and tuck and role casters chose to rebuke.

Not to teach her a lesson. Not to gain a ruined score.
She couldn’t land a good role, because we didn’t recognize her anymore.

I fear the same for so many – who choose plastic surgery today.
Especially when their appearance is what controls their living wage.

Everybody ain’t a Joan Rivers and doesn’t have the luxury to laugh-at-self.
So if the surgery is a miss – instead of a hit – your beloved career goes stealth.

I’m still a fan of Renee Zellweger’s. She’s still got that Texas style.
I will miss the squinty eyes, but I’m still digging that cooky smile.

Surely The EYES have it and I’m going to leave mine alone,

Love yourself and don’t change a thing.
God made you that way – )))embrace((( the scene.
