I am speaking about at this point in my life lyrics - Tracy Chapman #MUSICVIDEO #DianaMarySharpton #YesIndeed

Introduction

"Go to Heaven for the climate, Hell for the company."Mark Twain 

This is my second corona with a lime and I am feeling pretty good and quickly reaching for a third one lol! I probably will be drunk tonight but who gives a rats ass.... I am going to do it!!!! Then I am going to shed the bra, drive with windows down and let my body feel the cool night air.... My girls are beauties.... LMAO especially when a bit cold air hits them.... if you know what I mean ... On fire is all I can say...


Whoosh...my agenda is to win a million dollars in the Oklahoma Casino and take my winnings, give notice and get the hell out of dodge.... lol. Dreaming about this aspect of my life and it will happen... trust me!!!

Anyway, I didn't get to go to AZ but I am doing fun things in Dallas, Texas. Christmas was a disaster and thank God that it is over with. Remember folks don't forget your loved ones during the holidays.

Follow Up: Steven Sharpton I said it here, Dallas would be contenders for this upcoming Superbowl.... Whoop there it is nephew! They are red hot!!!

I am home and it is a Sunday Night, let’s hear a so smooth and soothing soulful rendition by Tracy Chapman. "At This Point In My Life"(2). Whoosh!!! It is all just perfect and right! The video was uploaded on YOUTUBE, Nov 8, 2014 by Tracy Chapman - Topic.

I have listed the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.

"At This Point In My Life" (3)
Done so many things wrong I don't know if I can do right
Oh I, Oh I've
Done so many things wrong I don't know if I can do right

At this point in my life
I've done so many things wrong I don't know if I can do right
If you put your trust in me I hope I won't let you down
If you give me a chance I'll try

You see it's been a hard road the road I'm traveling on
And if I take your hand I might lead you down the path to ruin
I've had a hard life I'm just saying it so you'll understand
That right now, right now, I'm doing the best I can
At this point in my life

At this point in my life
Although I've mostly walked in the shadows
I'm still searching for the light
Won't you put your faith in me
We both know that's what matters
If you give me a chance I'll try

You see I've been climbing stairs but mostly stumbling down
I've been reaching high always losing ground
You see I've been reaching high but always losing ground
You see I've conquered hills but I still have mountains to climb
And right now right now I'm doing the best I can
At this point in my life

Before we take a step
Before we walk down that path
Before I make any promises
Before you have regrets
Before we talk commitment
Let me tell you of my past
All I've seen and all I've done
The things I'd like to forget
At this point in my life

At this point in my life
I'd like to live as if only love mattered
As if redemption was in sight
As if the search to live honestly
Is all that anyone needs
No matter if you find it

You see when I've touched the sky
The earth's gravity has pulled me down
But now I've reconciled that in this world
Birds and angels get the wings to fly
If you can believe in this heart of mine
If you can give it a try
Then I'll reach inside and find and give you
All the sweetness that I have
At this point in my life


At this point in my life

Thank you for your continued support. I pray you are having a blessed evening or morning.
Peace and Love Always Diana

Tiziano Pellegrino ~ Dopyera Brothers #MUSICVIDEO #dianamarysharpton


Introduction
Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.” ~ Plato

Good afternoon and happy holiday season! If you are stuffed beyond your wildest dreams, there is nothing to watch on TV and your exercise program does not start until tomorrow. Then take a minute or two, relax and listen to my next musical guest’s fresh sound. He is originally from Florence, Italy and we all know him as Tiziano Pellegrino

He is a fabulous multi-instrumental musician, composer and song writer, which under the tutelage of his father (i.e. Professor Conductor and cellist in the orchestra of the Opera and Symphony Maggio Musicale Fiorentino (Florence, Italy)) and others has developed extraordinary skills and talent in all musical platforms and genres with an emphasis in classical, acoustic and electric guitar. Tiziano has played a wide range of musical genres which consists of, Rock, Country, String Band Bluegrass, Jazz, Folk, Blues, Rural, Electric, Blues and Pop.

An interesting antidote: Tiziano uses a guitar "Martin & Co." modified by a luthier woman, native American, which built a violin, played by the violinist "Itzhak Perlman" during the inauguration of US President "Obama" in the White House.

He is currently working as a researcher in the field of African-American musical tradition, Blues and Jazz, through the search for documents and listening to rare material. In addition to working as a musician and private guitar teacher in Italy (Florence-Lecce) and in England (London).

On January 13, 2015, he will be releasing a new "New Single" which will be available on iTunes, Google Play Music and Spotify. At the appropriate time a follow-up post will come your way with this information.

So without further ado, let me introduce you to the sensational and gifted Tiziano Pellegrino and his exciting song is titled “Dopyera Brothers”(2). The music genre is "Blue or Blues Grass".

The video was uploaded on YOUTUBE Nov 25, 2012   by Tiziano Pellegrino.

A Smile #POETRY #HAPPINESS #FRIENDSHIP w/Kirk Franklin - I Smile #MUSICVIDEO

Introduction:
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” ~ Leo Buscaglia

I believe we get caught up in our specific life circles and forget to thank those that have helped us along the way. That brought a "smile" to our face and joy into our heart.

About a year ago, I had the great pleasure and honor of meeting Tammy Cook and we became fast friends. We discussed writing a poem together and her suggested topic was “smiling”. She sent me some thoughts and the poem titled “A Smile” was my humble attempt in putting on paper Tammy’s view of the world. “A Smile” was published over a year ago and later removed from the blog.

I want to thank Tammy for her friendship, her positive spirit about life, her "Smile" and wish her a Happy Holiday Season. Thank you my friend for smiling!

A Smile

In the darkest of hours, I still smile,
to life's blessing; there’s no denial.
It is a belief that a smile shared,
is precious and cannot be compared.

A smile given is worth a thousand words.
Received: lifts a heart as wind into flight like birds.
It can be gentle, sensual or simply kind,
as love accepted in the recesses of one’s mind.

A smile is an inward tenderness revealed,
an acknowledgement that you’re; special, real..
If there’s a moment left in this arduous day,
I impart a smile to “ALL” that come my way.

Moments creep past; as stained specks in white wine,
yet it’s essential to smile; paying the details no mind.
So my pledge to you is simple here for sure,
a smile given or received is this souls’ imminent cure.

Morning Hues #POETRY #LOVE #HONESTY w/Bread Make It With You Lyrics #MUSICVIDEO #DianaMarySharpton

Introduction:

A woman knows the face of the man she loves as a sailor knows the open sea.” ~ Honore de Balzac


Morning Hues

Morning hues: reflections that bounce,
on horizons in orange and gold pronounced,
as time pauses the clock in your exultation,
and a soul speaks to my heart in anticipation.
Is this a lie?
Or is truth only spoken out loud and why?

Yet if you were in me as I am in you,
is candor readily accepted amid us two?
and are words that you and I share,
unspoken winds that actually fare?
Tell me, do you genuinely care?
Is your truth intrinsic as mine’s to dare?

I fight to believe in the unknown,
and walk blind stumbling on stones,
but unlike you, I see into your soul,
therefore words unspoken are told.
Is this a lie?
Or is truth only spoken out loud and why?

To say “I love you” among, all standing men,
would be the final testament; a soul appends,
as a certainty down to the marrow in bone,
facts that only a heart and soul have known.
Are your whispers of love purely physical?
Or is your soul entering mine a truth in love that’s also spiritual?
Diana Mary Sharpton ~ ©All Rights Reserve 2014

The music video that I have selected to accompany this poem is titled Bread Make It With You Lyricsand it was uploaded on YOUTUBE, Nov 22, 2008 by clovermaria.

I have add the lyrics for your reading pleasure, below.

"Make It With You"(3)
Hey, have you ever tried
Really reaching out for the other side
I may be climbing on rainbows
But baby, here goes

Dreams, they're for those who sleep
Life is for us to keep
And if you're wondering what this song is leading to
I want to make it with you
I really think that we could make it, girl

No, you don't know me well
In every little thing only time will tell
But you believe the things that I do
And we'll see it through

Life can be short or long
Love can be right or wrong
And if I chose the one I'd like to help me through
I'd like to make it with you
I really think that we could make it, girl

Baby, you know that dreams, they're for those who sleep
Life is for us to keep
And if I chose the one I'd like to help me through
I'd like to make it with you

I really think that we could make it, girl

My music, my words and my language, remember that (softly smiling).



Les émotions et les mots sont vrais ma chère chérie. Je me tiens sur le bord de votre âme ; Tenez moi s’il vous plaît ? Comme j’ai appris à connaître et à me situer dans la réalité de cet amour.
Peace and Love Always, Diana

Fifth Harmony - All I Want for Christmas is You #MUSICVIDEO #Premier #Dianamarysharpton

Orange Rose ~ Enthusiasm and Passion by Diana Mary Sharpton ~ Photography ©All Rights Reserve 2014
Introduction
"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.” ~ Audrey Hepburn

It’s was a difficult workweek. The last one before our winter holiday and of course everything was outstanding which miraculously got completed. I find myself completely free from getting up at 5 a.m. (unless I want too!). What to do with myself is the question? My first thought was no more blogging, drive to AZ but then Miss Indecision kicked in. I am like “NO”… and better yet “Hell No”! I am going to blog my ass off!!!! I thought about driving up the coast line…still thinking through this one… a positive in that direction is that gas was $1.99 a gallon, today. Wow! It has been a good five years since I saw that price. I just don’t want to drive in the winter, if it was summer, you would see nothing but dust. So, the sign comes down, guess you will have to put up with me.

As a matter of fact this post is to invite my nephew, Steven Sharpton to help me blog a little. Maybe even some sports talk because I know Dallas is going to kick Arizona’s ass all over the map… You are up Steve! Tell me I am talking smack...

I am home and it is not Friday, let’s hear so soothing holiday sounds. I am speaking about Fifth Harmony - All I Want for Christmas is You. It is a brand “NEW” song with a pop, R&B and dance genre and real sexy.

Whoosh!!! It is all just perfect and right! The video was uploaded on YOUTUBE, Dec 3, 2014 by FifthHarmonyVEVO

Thank you for your continued support. I pray you are having a blessed evening or morning.
Peace and Love Always Diana

Wanting More #POETRY #LOVE #INTIMACY & Ella Henderson - Yours #MUSICVIDEO #DianaMarySharpton

Introduction:
When love has been wounded; trust, reassurance, honesty, and intimacy, in abundance, are the only known cures” ~ Unknown


Wanting More
A whisper “kiss me”, as we do,
lips join; never passé, always new,
and I as you; explore beloved places,
slowly tasting all those wet briny spaces,
seeking that musty smell,
rooting the obvious spell,
without uttered direction,
based on known affection,
with you as I; our bodies converge,
instantly delivering an electric surge,
and you as I, move gently in a dance,
your hands control tightly the stance,
I as you gasp; kissing feverishly, now,
and we, as one, arrive ignited, that’s how,
flooding souls in energy given and received,
until you as I reach moments the other’s pleased,
it’s endless; as time becomes molten,
in ecstasy; forthwith an intimate token.

And you as I; whisper “you, I adore”,
looking at one another wanting more.

Diana Mary Sharpton ~ ©All Rights Reserve 2014

The music video that I have selected to accompany this poem is titled Ella Henderson - Yours" and it was uploaded on YOUTUBE, Dec 5, 2014 by EllaHVEVO. I have add the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.

"Yours"
I’ll wear your winter coat, the one you love to wear
So I keep feeling close to what’s beyond compare
The moments waking up, you catch me in your eyes
That beauty on my pillow that holds me in the night

And I would fight my strength to untape my mouth
When I used to be afraid of the words
But with you I’ve learnt just to let it out
Now my heart is ready to burst
Cause I, I feel like I’m ready for love
And I, wanna be your everything and more
And I know every day I say it
But I just want you to be sure
That I am yours

And if I be feeling heavy
You take me from the dark
Your arms they keep me steady
So nothing could fall apart

And I would fight my strength to untape my mouth
When I used to be afraid of the words
But with you I’ve learnt just to let it out
Now my heart is ready to burst
‘Cause I, I feel like I’m ready for love
And I wanna be your everything and more
And I know every day I say it
But I just want you to be sure
That I am yours


That I am yours


I hope you're having a brilliant day or evening and thank you for your continued support of my music & poetry blog.

Peace and Love Always, Diana
La verdad es que no veo nada más que usted. Gracias por mantener mi equilibrio mi amor querido.

Chris Montez's Let's Dance #musicvideo #DianaMarySharpton


Introduction:
“Dance is the hidden language of the soul” ― Martha Graham

The music video that I have selected tonight is titled “Let's Dance ~ Chris Montez" and it was uploaded on YOUTUBE, Jan 26, 2013by syrennn. It is some old time Rock and Roll music published in the early 60’s, I believe but I was not born then so I am not sure. LMAO!

Anyway, so far this has been the week from hell, literally! However, I am home now honey so let’s dance. I am in that kind of mood, wink!

Keep it simple and keep it real… Thank you for you love and support…It is always appreciated.

Johnny Rivers "Poor Side of Town" #ILovU #Happy #MUSICVIDEO #dianamarysharpton

The Mexican Woman ~ copywrite
ALEX WATERHOUSE-HAYWARD

Introduction

“The life of Man is a long march through the night, surrounded by invisible foes, tortured by weariness and pain, towards a goal that few can hope to reach, and where none may tarry long. One by one, as they march, our comrades vanish form our sight, seized by the silent orders of omnipotent Death. Very brief is the time in which we can help them, in which their happiness or misery is decided. Be it ours to shed sunshine on their path, to lighten their sorrows by the balm of sympathy, to give them the pure joy of a never-tiring affection, to strengthen failing courage, to instill faith in times of despair.” 

~ Bertrand Russell

Mondays always seem to be difficult for me but it is over and I am enjoying some great old school music. It is the kind of music that will enter the soul and “gently” sooth the jagged edges, like a midnight lover who knows what to do! All I know is that you can’t stop it from raining or the sun from shinning, what is meant to happen will happen, so take it easy on your friends or loved ones. Isn’t that what you’re supposed to do? Love and support them? Just saying….

"Poor Side of Town" is sung and written by Johnny Rivers and was the B-Side of a single released in 1966 which reached No.1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and on the RPM Canadian Chart in November of the same year. This song is considered a rock and roll/pop-soul style with folk elements and was a change in Johnny’s musical style; type cast as “Go-Go” in those days.

It is the longer version of the song and I have attached the verse for your reading pleasure.

Whoosh!!! It is all just perfect and right! The video was uploaded on YOUTUBE, Dec 28, 2009 by 2inspiremedia.

"Poor Side Of Town"
Do-doo-doo-wah shoo-be-doo-be
Do-doo-doo-wah shoo-be-doo-be

How can you tell me
How much you miss me
When the last time I saw you
You wouldn't even kiss me

That rich guy you've been seein'
Must have put you down
So welcome back baby
To the poor side of town

To him you were nothin'
But a little plaything (was a plaything, doo wah)
Not much more than
An overnight fling (overnight fling, doo wah)

To me you were the greatest thing
This boy had ever found
And girl it's hard to find nice things
On the poor side of town

I can't blame you for tryin'
I'm tryin' to make it too
I've got one little hang up, baby
I just can't make it without you (without you, without you)

So tell me
Are you gonna stay now (will you stay now, doo wah)
Will you stand by me girl
All the way now (all the way now, doo wah)

With you by my side
They can't keep us down
Together we can make it baby
From the poor side of town

(So tell me how much you love me)
(Come be near to me and say you need me now)

Oh, with you by my side
This world can't keep us down
Together we can make it baby
From the poor side of town

Do-doo-doo-wah shoo-be-doo-be
Do-doo-doo-wah shoo-be-doo-be
Do-doo-doo-wah shoo-be-doo-be

Thank you for your continued support. I pray you are having a blessed evening or morning.
Peace and Love Always Diana
I am happy you are home Sugar...

Alley Cat #POETRY #DIANAMARYSHARPTON #CATURDAY W/Peggy Lee - "The Alley Cat Song" #MUSICVIDEO

Introduction:


When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me. 

 ~ Erma Bombeck

Alley Cat


I no longer am a venal or capricious alley cat!
Clambering fence posts; seeking a mid-night snack,
groping trash cans until the break of dawn,
singing “meows”; parting sillage spawned.

Because, 
I let this go; as twilight turns silver into gold,
now, this does not mean I’m freakish or old,
it’s being an alley cat that I longing bemoan.

Ah, yes!
Rock hard, sweating, panting,
I made it happen; you see,
all that living between my knees.

Looking back; it’s the choices I made,
and the breathing I did.
If asked why?
I would probably do it all over again.

When finally,
I opened my eyes into winds that blew,
realizing; I wanted more with the likes of you,
no longer bouncing about from ship to shore.

For wit; I’m, Tom the Alley Cat, no more!


Diana Mary Sharpton ~ ©All Rights Reserve 2014

Let's have some fun folks, after all we are who we are! The music video that I have selected to accompany this poem is titled Peggy Lee - "The Alley Cat Song" (2) - stereo 1963and it was uploaded on YOUTUBE, Apr 2, 2011 by VinylVinnie60.

I have added the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.

"The Alley Cat Song" (3)
He goes on the prowl each night,
Like an alley cat.
Looking for some new delight, 
Like an alley cat.

You know, she can't trust him out of sight,
And there's no doubt of that.
He just don't know wrong from right, 
Like an alley cat.

He meets them.. 
And loves them..
And loves them... 
Like the "Catsanova" does. 

I mean that's no way to treat a pal,
She should tell him "Scat!" 
Aren't you sorry for that gal, 
With her alley cat? 

He meets them.. 
And loves them..
And loves them.. 
Like the "Catsanova" does.

I mean that's no way to treat a pal,
She should tell him "Scat!" 
Aren't you sorry for that gal, 
With her alley cat? 

Yeah, that's the sad, sad tale of a lonesome frail.

Yeah, that's the sad, sad tale of a lonesome frail and her alley cat.

Oh Yes! Meow....
Peace and Love Always, Diana
