Introduction
Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.”
Albert Camus


What a day! I was driving home from Tucson, Arizona yesterday, thirteen hours into the drive when one of the tires blew out, a brand new car mind you and out in the middle of nowhere, which delayed my arrival home until 2 am.

I want to thank Terry O’Neil for chatting with me until the tow truck arrived. It felt good to talk to a supportive friend. Then today, I spent all day trying to get a new tire on the cheap. Everything got accomplished and I am happy it turned out so well… I also had my broken down computer reconfigured with a new hard drive. Come to find out, it was defective since purchase. It would lose connectivity to the internet. Cannot have that, right? Anyway, they fixed the darn thing for free… which I picked up today as well… I don't have any of my pictures on it yet. Busy; however all in all a productive day.

After the tire disaster, I heard the song I am featuring tonight. It resonates for many reasons mainly for all the people that have shown me so much love and support. It feels good!!! BTW ~ the world revolves around those you love dearly, my humble opinion. The song is titled “Stand by Me” and sung by Ben E. King. Not to be mistaken with B. B. King; however equally noteworthy, Ben is a brilliant American soul and R&B singer, songwriter and composer. He is best known for this particular song which hit the US Top 10 in both 1961 and later in 1986.

The video was published on Jun 11, 2013 by Riahsha. Remember music is a language, so I added the version that included the lyrics. These are my thoughts tonight... 

I hope you like this selection and have a blessed evening or morning. Thank you for your continued support.

Peace and Love always 
Diana Mary Sharpton
