Diana Krall - A Wonderful Summer Sound #MUSICVIDEO #DianaMarySharpton

Diana Krall - Richstream (4)


“To love someone with all of your heart requires reaching them where they are with the only words they can understand.” ― Shannon L. Alder

I was watching a Clint Eastwood movie where Diana Krall was featured at the end of the movie and I fell in love with her sound. It has a jazz feel and she is an awesome piano player. She just recently released a new album by the name of Rag Dolls which is highly recommended but then I recommend all of her music. 

I am going to add music by the name of Wide River to Cross (1) from Rag Doll and Maybe You’ll be There (2) from the Look of Love album which is classic Diana Krall.

Wide River to Cross (3)
There's a sorrow in the wind
Blowing down the road I've been
I can hear it cry while shadows steal the sun

But I cannot look back now
I've come too far to turn around
And there's still a race ahead that I must run

I'm only halfway home, I've gotta journey on
To where I'll find, find the things I have lost
I've come a long long road but still I've got some miles to go
I've got a wide, a wide river to cross

I have stumbled, I have strayed
You can trace the tracks I made
All across the memories my heart recalls
But I'm still a refugee, won't you say a prayer for me?
'Cause sometimes even the strongest soldier falls

I'm only halfway home, I've gotta journey on
To where I'll find, I'll find the things I have lost
I've come a long long road but still I've got some miles to go
I've got a wide, a wide river to cross

I'm only halfway home, I've gotta journey on
To where I'll find, I'll find the things that I have lost
I've come a long long road but still I've got some miles to go
I've got a wide, a wide river to cross

I've got a wide, a wide river to cross

Maybe You’ll be There (4)
Each time I see a crowd of people
Just like a fool I stop and stare
It's really not the proper thing to do
But maybe you'll be there
I go out walking after midnight
Along the lonely thoroughfare
It's not the time or place
To look for you
But maybe you'll be there
You said your arms would always hold me
You said you lips were mine alone to kiss
Now after all those things you told me
How can it end like this
Someday if all my prayers are answered
I'll hear a footstep on the stair
With anxious heart
I'll hurry to the door
And maybe you'll
Be there

You can listen to this music and hear goodbyes and then you can rewind and hear love. I choose to rewind for today and hear love, hope and dreams. I am hopelessly in love and it's my Birthday after all. This music was selected when I was leaving a friend in the summer 2013. I found out that he had deceived me and was married. So, I said good bye. That was then and not now....

I hope this music sets the tone for a wonderful summer afternoon as it has for me.
Peace Diana
I can only say one thing and that is at the end of the day I will be there. Maybe you have decieded otherwise but I have not yet changed my mind... I love you Sug remember that...

My Sunday Menu-T-Bone & Jumbo Shrimp, Re-Fried Black Beans, Asparagus and Salad.

© copywrite by DMS Photography~all rights reserved (1)
I have worked out religiously for two day and plan on going today as well. My summer goals can be recapped as follows:

1.      Swimming three days a week and I have increased the laps and time by ten (i.e. ten lapse and ten minutes)
2.      Since May 22, 2013, I have lost six pounds and I log all food intakes daily in “My Fitness Pal”.
3.      I am scheduled to move in August. I have not met the “One” but I have worked on my relationship developing and feel positive results.

To treat myself I am going to go all out and cook. My Sunday dinner menu will consist of a broiled thin sliced T-Bone and jumbo shrimp, re-fried black beans, asparagus and an avocado/tomato salad.

T-Bones & Shrimp: Broiled
I used Webers steak seasoning, dash of Cheyenne pepper and garlic power with freshly squeezed lemon juice cooked on the lower rack on "high broil" until brown and the turn over, adding more lemon juice and place on the upper rack for about 5 to 7 minutes. This would depend on if you like rare, medium rare or well done, which is my personal preference.

I used Webers New Orleans shrimp seasoning, lemon juice, Cheyenne pepper and a dash of garlic.

Re-fried Black Beans
In one of my previous post you can find out how I make black bean soup. I had some black beans left over from last Sunday (about 3 ½ cups) and wanted to utilized but in a different manner. So all you have to do is drain all the juice off and place a heated pan with two table spoons of oil. Then use your handy smasher. Once smashed, add ½ fresh jalapenos without seeds, a ½ cup of minced red onion and one small minced clove of garlic. Let cook for about ten minutes on a medium heat. When complete and ready to eat, top the beans off with crumbled “Ranchero” cheese and a couple of leaves of cilantro.

I just steam for about 7 to 10 minutes because it is very important to never over cook vegetables. Once complete I add a table spoon of light butter, salt pepper. I like to keep this item light.

Avocado/Tomato Salad
You will need to cubed fresh avocados (remember they must to be firm) mixed in with diced tomatoes (firm), ¼ cup diced red onion and mince the other half of the jalapeno mentioned above. Then add two freshly squeezed lemons.

I always eat my food with freshly made corn tortillas and when it's done I will take a picture.
Buen Provech! Diana

Loving Lyfe Jennings "Must be Nice" for a wonderful Friday Afternoon

R&B Artist Lyfe Jennings (2) 
A new sound to me and when I watched the video, it was important that I shared it with you. The artist is Lyfe Jennings and the video I am attaching is Must be Nice (1). Check it out folks, this is a classic R&B sound and I just love it! By the way, the video has a great story line and definitely adds to the song and delivers visually to the theme.

Oh! let me add to the ladies… Lyfe, definitely has a little something!

Peace Diana

If I had to name a baby, I would do it just like Kim Kardashian!

I never get to listen to the news anymore because of my summer schedule; that said what did I miss in a week? A lot! 

Sleeping Baby Girl (1)
My conversation today is about the process of naming your baby. Back in the day, I went traditional, in the sense; my children got names that were listed as typical “people” names somewhere on this planet. I was unconventional to my family, because I didn't use the naming convention of various family members. So, I went with Irish and Italian names. Why? I love Italian/Irish names and I wanted my kids to have rare and uncommon names in comparison to other American babies. I never considered how my children would actually feel about this heavy burden of carrying my need for all things individualistic. My daughter even changed the spelling of her name (not legally) for many years. I was confused, by this action. She didn't appreciate the complex spelling or how completely baffling its traditional enunciation might be to others. Wow!

Well, in the news, which I am so far behind reading, I noticed that my protagonist, Kim Kardashian (KK from the rest of this discussion), named her new born daughter "North West." Now, in defense of KK, if I was in this position again and had the opportunity to burden a brand new person’s life with a nostalgic and or bizarre name, I would do it all over again! This time I would probably be like KK and name my children based on the “Event” and or “Location” of making the baby.

EVENT – I would no longer focus on any kind of spiritual significance or unusual foreign influence, no, just how we got here! For example:

Holla Sharpton - if getting there was memorable to say the least, you know what I mean.
Really WhWi (short for Where the Hell Was I?) Sharpton - the event was an unfortunate circumstance in conception hell.

LOCATION – I would want to continue being CONSISTENT to "EVENT" (this is to fulfill my role as an accountant) something I am reminded about everyday. For Example:

AnA (short for Anytime and Anywhere) Sharpton – this would be a second baby to Holla’s baby daddy, if you know what mean! Oh yeah!

Not Again Sharpton – I would probably claim a mental disorder at this point to cover up the fact I went back, had sex and got catch with another baby from WhWi’s baby daddy. Oh man, it happens, not a lot but to a few!

Okay, so I am having a little fun but check it out. What is little North West going to do in High School? It may help that her parents are rich but she is going to get a beat down all her life!

Just keeping it real, folks! Peace Diana…

Stevie Nicks & Don Henley - for the cure! Leather & Lace #love #fragility #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton

Pre-Fleetwood Mac (2)


Hearts are connected by the slenderest of threads.” 

― Marty Rubin

My song for the evening is sung by Stevie Nicks & Don Henley. This music empowers me as a woman. 

The title of the song is "Leather And Lace" (1).  It was released as a single in 1981. The video was published on YouTube Feb 24, 2011by fitz207 and is considered a Soft rock, folk rock genre.

I have added the lyrics for your reading pleasure.

"Leather And Lace" (3)
Is love so fragile
And the heart so hollow
Shatter with words
Impossible to follow
You're saying I'm fragile
I try not to be
I search only
For something
I can't see

I have my own life
And I am stronger
Than you know
But I carry this feeling
When you walked into my house
That you won't be walking out the door
Still I carry this feeling
When you walked into my house
That you won't be walking out the door

Lovers forever
Face to face
My city or mountains
Stay with me stay
I need you to love me
I need you today
Give to me your leather
Take from me
My lace

You in the moonlight
With your sleepy eyes
Could you ever love a man like me
And you were right
When I walked into your house
I knew I'd never want to leave
Sometimes I'm a strong man
Sometimes cold and scared
And sometimes I cry
But that time I saw you
I knew with you to light my nights
Somehow I'd get by

Lovers forever
Face to face
My city or mountains
Stay with me stay
I need you to love me
I need you today
Give to me your leather
Take from me
My lace

Lovers forever
Face to face
My city or mountains
Stay with me stay
I need you to love me
I need you today
Give to me your leather
Take from me
My lace
Take from me
My lace
Take from me
My lace

Ma chérie d’amour

Remember my song, my words, my language....
Peace Out Diana

Holley Berry - In The Call
The Call just came out on video, today and I had the opportunity to watch it. Wow! scary stuff folks. This movie had me gripping the edge of my bed. Yes, I am in bed. It is basically about a veteran 911 operator, Jordan (played by Holley Berry), that takes a life-altering call from a teenage girl who has just been abducted, she realizes that she must confront a killer from her past in order to save the girl's life. The actor who plays the killer was very believable. If you like scary movies, this is the one, believe me. By the way there is a twist at the end of the movie.

Abigail Breslin-Hayden
Michael Imperioli-Alan Denado

Now, I need some wine to try to relax for the rest of the evening. Peace Diana.

Thicke & Cyrus, On a Monday?

Robin Thicke - Blurred Lines ft. T.I., Pharrell (3)

Great day and now I am at home relaxing. I wanted to share some thoughts about some new music videos that recently has come out. I watched Miley Cyrus - We Can't Stop (1) and I have two points. One, I like the song but two I hate the video. Miley is young and sexy. The video depicts this on occasion but gets lost trying to seduce the shock factor out of the viewer. I turned it off half away through the presentation. I went ahead and added it below so you can make-up your own mind.

My next video is Robin Thicke - Blurred Lines ft. T.I., Pharrell (2), the GP version. It’s sexy and I like the groove. Check it out if you have a chance.
Peace Diana

Couple by the Sea (2)
What a difference a day makes! Well I don’t have a poem this evening but I do want to share some music by one of my favorite artist, Ornella Vanoni. The song is L’Appuntamento (1), you don’t have to understand the language, (Italian), to get what is being said. It is sensual and stays with you. I added the lyrics below for those that want to know what is being said.

I first heard this song in an Oceans movie and had to have the record/CD. The only way was to buy it was from an Italian CD outlet. Anyway, it reminds me of a favorite fantasy facing the Mediterranean Sea. I hope you enjoy song as much as I do.

Have a great evening, Peace Diana

L'appuntamento (English) Lyrics (3)
I've Been Mistaken So Many Times By Now That I Already Know

that Today Is Almost A Certainty
i've Been Wrong About You But Once More
that You Can Change My Life...
to Accept This Strange Appointment
has Been A Madness!
i Am Sad Among The People
that You Are Passing By Me
but The Nostalgia Of Seeing You Again
it Is Stronger Than Weeping:
this Sun Shines On On My Face
a Sign Of Hope.
i Am Waiting When Suddenly
you Appear In A Distance!
love, Make It Soon, I Don't Resist...
if You Don't Come, I Don't Exist
i Don't Exist, I Don't Exist...
and The Time Has Passed And It's Raining
but Only To Wait
it Doesn't Concern Me What The World Thinks
i Don't Want To Go.
i Look Inside Myself And I Wonder
but I Don't Feel Anything;
i Only Have Is Hope
lost Among The People.
love Is You Already Late And I Don't Resist...
if You Don't Come I Don't Exist
i Don't Exist, I Don't Exist...
lights, Cars, Showcases, Roads
everything Seems So Confusing
my Shadow Has Gotten Tired Of Following Me
the Day Dies Slowly.
it Doesn't Befit Me To Return To My House
to My Sad Life
this Life That I Wanted To Give To You
you Have Crumbled Between The Fingers.
love Pardons But I Don't Resist...
forever, I Don't Exist Now
i Don't Exist, I Don't Exist..

Jump to the Beat! with Kirk Franklin

Stomp by Kirk Franklin (1)
It was a difficult day and week, but I made it! I am excited about my future. I get to move into a new apartment in two months. New beginning, they always refresh and renew the sprite.

Tomorrow, I will sleep late and watch Good Morning America with Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos (what a name) but I just love this show. I never get to watch it anymore so this will be a treat. They always host a summer music festival, hopefully this tradition has continued. I will then go swimming and exercise for at least two hours and the rest of the day will be filled with #leisure!

My song this evening is not about love lost, broken hearts or anything but pure joy to be alive in this very moment. Thank you, Lord, for mercy, patience and love you bestow up my heart and soul.

Peace Diana
Oh! The song, sorry well let’s see Stomp (2) by Kirk Franklin come now jump to the beat!

Hispanic Roots

Marco Antonio Solis (1)
I am Hispanic and I came home wanting to hear music from my roots: Marco Antonio Solis sings a favorite of mine donde estara mi primavera (2). I have added the lyrics below.

Julio Iglesias sings a song called Una Paloma Blanca (3) which speaks to the little girl in me and the very essence of my Hispanic background. 

I am also going to add a great song my dad loved to sing once he had a tequila shot, two or five and this song was BEATRIZ ADRIANA "ALLA EN EL RANCHO GRANDE" (4)

A Kardashian for President

Keeping up with the Kardashians (1)

What will it be Kim, Khloe or Kourney for president? If you let Chris Jenner have her way, one of
the Kardashians would be on their way to the White House, as a resident and boy the America Government would not only be on TV, it would pay.

The Kardashian publicity and money machine does not stop! Today, it was Khloe’s instagram on a 1 1/2 hour workout, if all I did was workout to make millions, you bet your ass I would live in the gym! Yesterday, it was the guessing game of Kim’s “K” baby girl names. Tomorrow, it will be Kim’s weight gain and her plans on how to lose it all. There will be TV appearances and photo ops for all and that will be the summer of 2013, folks.

I think am suffering from #KardashianBackLash. I am not a hater but I want to get something off my chest. I was such a fan of the family’s reality show. I thought it was fresh and edgy. I would not miss an episode, until Kim’s over the top wedding and 72 day nuptials. It was such a stick it to the fans move by the media, E TV and the money making Kardashian churn that it just has made me repugnant when all I hear and read on the news is Kardashian this and that. Take a vacation! Come back in six months.

Is there anything else going on? Like the republicans trying to find fictitious crooked deals to set up the White House or the status of world domination by the Korean nut case. Just anything at this point will suffice. The monkey mating season, is it on track? Or, #PinkICON is there a growing trend to wear pink hair and matching clothing popping up around America? Doesn’t the Huffington Post have a poll out yet measuring the success of having sex in a marriage?

Seriously Folks…write your editor and ask them to stop the gossip news and deliver journalism on important topics!

Peace Diana

"Driving Alone" #Poetry w/Kid Rock "Picture" #Musicvideo #DianaMarySharpton

Kid Rock (1)
In presence of the Moon nobody sees stars.
― Amit Kalantri

I’m midway through my work week and that’s a positive thing! I can’t seem to get used to this summer schedule and the long days. Don’t get it twisted; I blessed to have the job and home to come to, each day. It’s a funk, I seem to be swimming in lately and I keep reaching for some good music to cure what’s ailing me or at least speak to it.

If you noticed, I am, also, not someone that is into just one genre of music. So today I am picking KID ROCK with his amazing soulful sound from a song called Picture featuring Sheryl Crow. When I listen to this song, I think of the imagery in my poem Driving Alone which was posted on 04/19/2013 and being right on point.

Driving alone
Driving alone, thin haze creeps to enclose
White ash in vertical procession quails to hold
The somber hush trapped along this old country road
In a distance chirps suddenly unfolds:
It’s a large one-eyed crusty green toad

Steady’s, the constant purr
To a well-tuned 8-cylinder
Rubber rolling over asphalt
Crashes stillness; a delay in fault

Judgment unyielding sealed
Wrong in its sight yet concealed
He is focused on a solitary beam
And drives in drudgery or in-between dreams
Time halts. He takes in the deepest draw
On a filter-less, as the radio plays songs in melancholy crawl
Images flicker in nuisance as unwelcome pests
A solitude his married, welcomed and knows best

Inside a darkened corner in some desolate country bar
Along a deserted road that’s going nowhere yet not far
He’s midpoint; lost at sea and can’t seem to find a shore
Adrift in the ebbs of his mind; misplacing time nonetheless craving more…

If you get a chance to listen to this music video and read the poem, please do. Peace Diana

Ingrid Michaelson's "The Way I Am" #MUSICVIDEO / "A Stormy Sea" #Poetry by #DMS

eyes are the mirror to the soul (1)
The eyes are the mirror of the soul and reflect everything that seems to be hidden; and like a mirror, they also reflect the person looking into them.” ~ Paulo Coelho

A Stormy Sea
Look into my eyes; my darling
And tell me; what do you see?
Yes, they’re brown; a hazel in the sun
And yes complicated; hold on, I’m not done

My love, it’s more than colors or forbidden attitudes
Or even mysterious platitudes
It’s more than life’s implicit stage
Or words asserting love on each and every page

Is it the touch from soft lips or gentle bites that stings?
Or an attraction bouncing in-between tall building, you see?
Is it a soul filled with agony and joy? Or flowers that bleed?
Or maybe just an intricate man questioning, why me?

I say why not?
Because when I peek into your eyes; nothing frightens me
I know you’re there irrespective to what others might see
I see a man, swimming in difficult waters of a stormy sea
Fight my dear, stand up to fear and turn around it’s only me

There was no choice love struck me down
That day so long ago…
When things were simple; I know you know
I regret one thing sharing this with a so called friend…

A Bryan Adams Afternoon with "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You" #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton

Bryan Adams (2)


I am fated to journey hand in hand with my strange heroes and to survey the surging immensity of life, to survey it through the laughter that all can see and through the tears unseen and unknown by anyone.
― Nikolai Gogol

It was a long Friday workday and it was also the start of January 2017. On the way home, I got stuck on a Bryan Adams song. I am sharing it with you below. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

I can’t imagine how it would feel to run home to the love of my life. (Everything I Do) I Do It For You! (1) I would make sure and listen to your concerns; understand what was important and love your quiet moments. I would be patient and trust you as my man.This song is for the seed of love that’s in my heart and that’s patiently waiting for you to knock at my 

The artist being featured this evening is “Bryan Adams", a Canadian Rock & Roll musician that became global in the 1980’s. 

The video was uploaded on YOUTUBE, Mar 10, 2009 by BryanAdams

The music genre is Rock. I am loving this classic rock vibe and have listed the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.

(Everything I Do) I Do It For You(3)
Look into my eyes,
You will see
What you mean to me
Search your heart,
Search your soul
And when you find me there, you'll search no more

Don't tell me it's not worth tryin' for
You can't tell me it's not worth dyin' for
You know it's true
Everything I do,
I do it for you

Look into your heart,
You will find
There's nothin' there to hide
Take me as I am,
Take my life
I would give it all, I would sacrifice

Don't tell me it's not worth fightin' for
I can't help it, there's nothin' I want more
You know it's true
Everything I do,
I do it for you

There's no love
Like your love
And no other
Could give more love
There's nowhere
Unless you're there
All the time,
All the way, yeah

Look into your heart, baby

Oh your can't tell me it's not worth tryin' for
I can't help it there's nothin' I want more
Yeah, I would fight for you,
I lie for you
Walk the wire for you, yeah, I'd die for you

You know it's true
Everything I do,
I do it for you

Everything I do, darling
And we'll see it through
Oh we'll see it through
Oh yeah

Look into your heart
You can't tell me it ain't worth dying for
Oh yeah

I'll be there, yeah
I'll walk the wire for you
I will die for you

Oh yeah

I would die for you

I'm going all the way, all they way, yeah

Hope this post finds you in good spirits and that you are blessed this new 2017.
Peace and Love always Diana
You Sugar are my Hero...xxxx

Friday Night Snack - Its a Party!

Cheese Nachos (1)
I love Friday nights. I get the week-end to recover from a week from perdition. The first thing I am going to do is make me a snack fit for a queen and then curl up and watch a great movie. My snack tonight will be homemade nachos with a Corona beer. Nachos: (my recipe)

5 or 6 Corn tortillas (for more people just add ingredients)
1 cup of olive oil
¼ cup of minced cilantro
¼ cup of chopped up cherry tomatoes
½ cup of strained black beans
2 avocados (firm cut into small wedges or cubes)
Ranchero Cheese (you will have to by the whole cheese and cut into small thin slices)
¼ cup of sliced jalapenos (canned)
¼ cup of minced red onion.
1 lime (add to the avocado wedges)
1 pinch of salt, black pepper and cayenne (add to the avocado wedges)

I would recommend that you heat up your oil for about 5 minutes on high heat. Remember the oil needs to be at its very hottest, possible. Cut the tortillas up into four squares. Place the tortillas squares into the hot oil and let fry on both sides until light brown and crispy. Set crispy tortillas squares on a paper towel to soak up left over grease, if any.
Beer-with-Lime (1)

Once the tortillas strips are cool enough to work with, place them strategically on a platter (not piled up) and add the small slices of the ranchero cheese to each square. Microwave for at least 1 minute or until the cheese melts. Add the rest of the ingredients as a topper and you’re ready to go. Oh, don’t forget the Corona beer or two with a slice of lime.

Just keeping Friday night real folks…Peace Diana..
