Heart Talk = just saying – petitions yes/no?

On 25 January 2014 by Carolien Geurtsen

“The sun don’s shine at night, oh no it don’t. If only you would just open your eyes.
I know I’m not alone, is it all right if all these words don’t mean nothing at all”. 

Just some Happy miracle news first and a link to some Heartwarming Matti talk


My computer is starting up slowly, coffee and my 2013 notebook with my travel logs from Turkey are next to me, on the floor 4 huge boxes capturing my photo’ exhibition I took down yesterday [ photograps mostly made in Istanbul last year]. And before starting my daily typing and continue to work on my book, I can’t resist to open Facebook ‘breefly’.
Mind you, it took a wee while longer, like some of you might relate to.

This time due to one of the frequently posted petitions, usually with heartbreaking photographs I cannot always bare to watch. I did not watch them/it, but did not need that to know I was going to sign, this regarding the yearly whales and dolphin slaughter on the Faroe Islands, which my brother posted this morning. Here the text I wrote while sharing the request/petitition link on that same Facebook which I so frequently doubt whether I want to keep on using it. But I know I will for at least the time being, as it is so connecting me with friends and family all over the world, and with the news concerning both them and me.

I wrote

I know there is much to sign petition-wise and always there is the question if it will make any difference, many people find it a waste of their energy.

I sign things/causes because I want to make a statement to myself in the first place, I am not indifferent, and for the chance it can make a difference, ánd for whichever soul who might be affected in the slightest, in a positive way.

I guess I think/feel it is the only way I can stay sane in this maddening world: Take enough me-time, enough friend and family-time, look for beauty and inspiration and love,see where I can contribute in a positive way \ And notice the mishaps in any which way they come to my attention if they touch me, *like this one*
And look more specific if they already have my ultimate interest ^*like Turkey issues, and gender related and other discrimination/political injustice and health/food issues… like Monsantewhatstheirdoings

…and the song playing on Sublime FM right now #nokidding is a fun co+inciding thingy which makes me smile:
.. I say a little prayer – 😉

found it

aint that swell.
[forget about the heartbreakpart for a tick]

The moment I wake up
Before I put on my makeup
I say a little prayer for you
While combing my hair, now,
And wondering what dress to wear, now,
I say a little prayer for you

I love how music is supporting me, my thoughts ánd feelings, especially while writing.
The I guess Randomly-Passing-By-On-The-Radio songs, are sometimes not known, or only familiair, and afterwards  looked up in YouTube, because the text is reaching me through my concentration while typing.

And amazing for even me myself I, now playing while wrapping up, is one of my old time favorites: I want you to get together 
from Saint Germaine.
It is  the last one I will look up before posting than the other writing me-time with the radio on will commence.

Music on the move in me.

Blues is a woman in a tight white dress
I could not find on YouTube 😉
if you do let me know

and Matti? Yes Matti Rocks!

Leuk om te horen wat jij er van vind. Alvast bedankt!
