Sunday Song – Hot Summertime


Straw-660A Hat.web

    Beach sand in your toes,

working on a suntan,

sleepless hot nights,

a time for pillow fights,

cold sweet ice tea

refreshes while relaxing,

with the hazy, lazy days

of the HOT SUMMERTIME …

~~~~~~~~~

AAAaaaahhhhh ….. the season of summer is upon us.
May the sun shine upon your life ….
And may the summer breezes gently sing a song of “LOVE”

A smooth jazz rendition of Summertime by Ray Barretto

A good one to grab you honey, and cha cha

across your living room dance floor.

Now, that your legs are warmed up,

time to have a sip of your Pina Colada

and groove on the sandy beach.

A summer beach song celebrating summer with a fun sound.

Now, it’s cool down time,  sit back,

soak up the sun and listen to a bluesy

jazz song from the play Porgy & Bess called Summertime.

Happy Summer …

Isadora 😎

Love is like the wonders of a unique rose in the garden of peace.

Beauty is not in the face; Beauty is a light in the heart. Khalil Gibran

Placido Domingo sings this romantic song about the beauty of a woman he desires,

but feels unworthy of her. The words are in Spanish and English.

Enjoy … Isadora 😎

Sunday Song – Jazz Tunes

Musical tones bring joy and happiness within, dance captures sound in every step in time.

The blues tells a story in itself. It can make you happy or give you a feeling to swing.

LOVE : the way to LOVE anything deeply is to realize it may be lost to you one day.

Sunday Song – Be the Light

49139f06dd001be90436354c517631b1[1]

The video below is of a young lady who decided to audition for show America’s Got Talent. She wrote the song and sings it beautifully.                                           Her words remind us we should all need to Be the Light.

The Layman’s Ten Commandment

These commandments seem quite simple yet how many of us can follow through with all of them. I hope you’ll take the time to consider the deeper meaning. These are inspiring words. I believe they can be of comfort or a motivation for anyone who chooses to live by them.

Namaste, Isadora  🙏

“The Layman’s Ten Commandments”

1. Prayer is not a “Spare Wheel” that you pull out when in trouble, but it is a “Steering Wheel” that directs the right path throughout your journey.

2. Why are a car’s Windshield so large and the Rear View Mirror so small? Because our PAST is not as important as our FUTURE; so look ahead and move on.

3. Friendship is like a BOOK. It takes a few minutes to Burn, but it takes years to Write.

4. All things in life are Temporary. If things are Going Well, Enjoy It; they will not last forever. If things are Going Wrong, Don’t Worry; they will not last long either.

5. Old Friends are Gold! New Friends are Diamond! If you get a Diamond, don’t forget the Gold! Because to hold a Diamond, you always need a Base of Gold!

6. Often when we lose hope and think this is the end, GOD smiles from above and says, “Relax, sweetheart, it’s just a bend, not the end!

7. When GOD solves your problems, you have Faith in HIS Abilities; when GOD doesn’t solve your problems HE has faith in YOUR Abilities.

8. A blind person asked St. Anthony: “Can there be anything worse than losing eyesight?” He replied: “Yes, losing your vision!”

9. When you Pray for Others, God Listens to you and blesses them, so sometimes, when you are safe and happy, remember that someone has prayed for you.

10. WORRYING does not take away Tomorrow’s TROUBLES; it takes away Today‘s Peace.

Sunday Song – The Beauty of the Dancer

You see the beauty of the dancer,

You hear the beauty of the song,

You feel the beauty all around you,

You wonder where do you belong.

You are the beauty of the dancer,

You are the beauty of the song,

You are the beauty all around you,

You’re standing right where you belong.

All above you,

All below you,

All around you,

All within you.

Beauty all above you, beauty all below you,

Beauty all around you, beauty all within you

You are beauty

You are beauty
