"Me & Mrs. Jones" sung by Billy Paul #Passion #LoveAffair #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton #Chemistry


The Peccadillo (1)

Introduction:

“The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.” 


― Carl Gustav Jung

Tonight I am featuring a classic R&B genre music titled "Me and Mrs. Jones"(2). The artist is none other than Billy Paul singing a song which was first introduced in the movie "The Graduate".

For your reading pleasure, I have listed the lyrics below.

"Me and Mrs. Jones"(3)
Me and Mrs Jones
We got a thing going on
We both know that it's wrong
But it's much too strong
To let it go now

We meet every day at the same cafe — 6:30
I know, I know she'll be there
Holding hands, making all kinds of plans
While the jukebox plays our favorite song

Me and Mrs, Mrs. Jones
Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Jones
We got a thing going on
We both know that it's wrong
But it's much too strong
To let it go now

We gotta be extra careful
That we don't build our hopes up too high
Cause she's got her own obligations
And so, and so do I

Me and Mrs, Mrs. Jones
Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Jones
We got a thing going on
We both know that it's wrong
But it's much too strong
To let it go now

Well, it's time for us to be leaving
It hurts so much, it hurts so much inside
Now she'll go her way
And I'll go mine
But tomorrow we'll meet the same place
The same time

Me and Mrs, Mrs. Jones
Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Jones
We got a thing going on

We gotta be extra careful
We can't afford to build our hopes up too high
I wanna meet and talk to you
At the same place, the same cafe, the same time
And we're gonna hold hands like we used to
We gonna talk it over, talk it over
We know, they know
And you know and I know it was wrong
But I'm thinking strong
We gotta let 'em know now

That we got a thing going on, a thing going on


mi querido... what matters is they chemistry... in and out of the lab.

Peace Diana

#Miguel, I Am Kind ‘a Feeling His Music #LayWithMe #Baby "Simple Things" #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton #FreeSpirit #WildHeart #ThatsRight

Introduction:

Miguel (3)
“The greatest challenge in life is to be our own person and accept that being different is a blessing and not a curse. A person who knows who they are lives a simple life by eliminating from their orbit anything that does not align with his or her overriding purpose and values. A person must be selective with their time and energy because both elements of life are limited.”

― Kilroy J. Oldster


New music, to me, that is contagious. 

Anyway, I heard Miguel through his recent video with Mariah Carey. So, he may have a little something, something. His hair style reminds me of the 1920's and he sound has certainly got my attention. I am adding one of his videos that is sexy titled "Simple Things(2).  

That's right, we all just want the simple things in life!

I have also added the lyrics for your reading pleasure.

"Simple Things" (3)
Miguel

She said, I don't want a model
I don't want a movie star
You don't have to win the lotto
I want you to win my heart
She said I just want someone true
She said I just want someone to
Smoke with me babe
And lay with me babe
And laugh with me babe
I just want the simple things
To smoke with me babe
And laugh with me baby
And lay with me babe
Cause I just want the simple things
And I just want you
I want you
I said, now I don't need a model
Now I don't need a debutante
Just be a tough act to follow
You know, a free spirit, with a wild heart
I said I just want someone real, someone true
I said I just want someone else
Smoke with me baby
Lay with me baby
Laugh with me baby girl
I just want the simple things
Smoke with me baby
Lay with me baby
Laugh with me baby girl
I just want the simple things
I just want you
Okay baby, I just want you
You, I want you baby
You, alright, I just want you
You
Smoke with me baby
Lay with me baby
Laugh with me baby girl
I just want the simple things
Smoke with me baby
Lay with me baby
Laugh with me baby girl
I just want the simple things
I just want you
I just want you
Give me all of you
All of you darling, oh, I want you
I want you
I just want the simple things

#EricClapton & a Glass of Wine Kind of Night w/ ""Have You Ever Loved a Woman?" #speaksvolumns #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton ##NoMatterW #IWantU

glass-of-wine (1)

Introduction:

“True love is finding someone whose demons play well with yours" - The Joker”
― The Joker Batman Arkham City


It has been a long day, pushing numbers, coming up with answers and avoiding complicated situations!

My son asked that I cook him another batch of Mexican rice which means going to the store to get ingredients. In addition, I have to stop off at CVS to pick up a couple of prescriptions, so I would not be able to go straight home.

Rice cooked, prescriptions picked up, I poured myself a glass of chardonnay, Clos Du Bois, to be precise and put on my favorite Eric Clapton CD titled, E. C. Was Here. This album is classic blues/rock release in August 1975 and if you ever have a chance to listen to all the songs, it is not a waste of time. 

I am going to add to my very favorites list one of the songs titled "Have You Ever Loved a Woman?" (1). This song penetrates the very essence of my soul, today. Another song, on this album that matches my mood.

The song was downloaded from YouTube by fabriziothevox on April 29, 2011. The song is a blues-rock genre.

"Have you ever Loved a Woman?"
Eric Clapton

So much that you tremble in pain?
Have you ever loved a woman
So much you tremble in pain?
And all the time you know
She bears another man's name
But you just, woman
So much it's a shame and a sin
You just
So much it's a shame and a sin?
And all the time you know
She belongs to my imaginary friend
So much
And you know you can't leave her alone?
You just love a woman
And you know you can't leave her alone?
Something deep inside of you
Won't let you wreck best friend's home

Amy Winehouse's “I love you more than you'll ever know” #UR #LovOfMyLife #MUSICVIDEO #DianaMarySharpton

Tying Her Dress (1)
Introduction:
I think sometimes when we find love we pretend it away, or ignore it, or tell ourselves we’re imagining it. Because it is the most painful kind of hope there is.” 
― Rae Carson

The last song I am picking for this evening is titled “I love you more than you'll ever know (2) by Amy Winehouse. The video was uploaded on YOUTUBE on Jul 12, 2012 by Onlymusicmusique
I have listed the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.

"I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know" (3)
If I ever leave you, baby
You can say I told you so
And if I ever hurt you
You know I hurt myself as well

Is that any way for a man to carry on?
Do you think I want my loved one gone?
Said, I love you more than you'll ever know
More than you'll ever know

When I wasn't making much money
You know where my paycheck went
You know I brought it home to you, baby
And I never spent a red cent

Is that any way for a man to carry on?
Do you think I want my loved one gone?
Said, I love you more than you'll ever know
More than you'll ever know

Now listen to this
I'm not trying to be, just any kind of man, no I ain't
I'm just trying to be somebody
You can love, trust and understand

I know, I know, I know that I can be
A part of you that no one else could see, yeah
But I gotta hear you say, I got to hear you say
It's alright

I'm only flesh and blood
But I could be anything that you demand
I could be King of everything
Or just a tiny grain of sand, now tell me

Is that anyway for a man to carry on?
Do you think that I want my loved one gone?
I love you more than you'll ever know
I said, "I love you, I love, I love you"
Don't want nobody else but you

It has been a hard week, full of stress because I have a huge project due tomorrow evening and as usual sleep went out the door. It left cold sober...lol!

Remember music is a language and these are my final thoughts for this evening. May your day or evening be blessed with good health, unconditional love, light-hearten laughter, enormous success, and unending happiness.

Peace and Love Always
Diana Mary Sharpton

What competes in newsworthiness with Kim Kardashion, President Obama and Tornados?

Boat Capized (1)
We have certainly been plagued with a massive number tornados and their subsequent destruction of American towns and cities, as well as Kim Kardashion’s growing rear-end articles and President Obama’s constant negative press through the billowing of facts taken out of context. Well wait, there is one more and this competing story line is allotted to the Cruise line disasters!

In the past year, I promise you, that I have been made aware of at least half a dozen or more events concerning cruise liner disasters from passengers disappearing, boats burning up, boats stuck in the middle of the ocean with busted engines, those not able to leave port and finally  a vessel that actually capsized. People have died.

I cannot imagine why anyone in their right mind would consider getting on a Cruise ship regardless of the price. This is strictly my opinion; however, it would be like getting on a tin bucket and then being surprised why something went wrong. It would seem to be as much fun as being told you have cancer and oh yeah you need to take poison for the cure. This however may not help and you will probably die. Yikes, at least with cancer you have an idea of the impediment and horror that lies ahead!

It’s the assembly line essence of the whole business of cruises on international waters that really bothers’ me and the little to no government oversight. Why isn't congress doing something about these companies that
are not maintaining their assets properly? I wonder why the investors are still hanging on with all of these negative events.

Personally, when someone excuses death as an acceptable margin to the total number of cruise customers, I just say it is wrong; anyone that dies as a result of a misadventure on a cruise ship is too much, period!

Well, the bottom line is that as long people keep buying their services, I guess we will keep hearing about these issues.


Peace Diana

Fast and Furious 6 #MOVIE #REVIEW

This afternoon, I watched Fast and Furious 6 with my son and daughter and law. It is a high octane fast pace action-adventure movie thriller. There were hunky men, Van Diesel, Dwayne Johnson and Tyrese Gibson and there was humor. I enjoyed this movie  for it's entertainment value and would definitely recommend seeing it. The movie ran about two hours, there were big crows and at the end there was a teaser where Jason Statham appears on the last scene. Is he part of the next Fast and Furious?

Cast - Memorable Performance
Vin Diesel - Dominic Toretto
Paul Walker - Brian O'Conner
Dwayne Johnson - Hobbs
Jordana Brewster - Mia
Michelle Rodriguez - Letty
Tyrese Gibson - Roman

Happy Memorial Day folks
Peace Diana

My Menu for Today - Carne Guisada, Black Bean Soup, Mexican Rice, Green Beans with Turkey Bacon & Salad w/ #TonyTucker "Wait For The Night To Turn Blue" #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton

Introduction:

Carne Guisada © copywrite by DMS Photography~all rights reserved (1)
“I wanted her and only her.
I wanted to be a part of her storm.
I wanted to feel my pulse against hers.
I wanted the bitter on her sweet tongue.
I wanted the sadness in her sweet syrup eyes.
I wanted the silence in her screaming mind and the enigma that is really quite simple- a complicated happiness. I wasn't willing to let go. I was falling completely, forever, into solid fucking love that was swimming through my veins.
I wanted to be the breath in her mouth and the rhythm in her chest that would beat only for me.”
― Shey Stahl

Carne Guisada, Black Bean Soup, Mexican Rice, Green Beans w/Turkey Bacon & Salad

Carne Guisada is a Mexican recipe for marinated and then sautéed beef tips or skirt. Combine all the marinade ingredients in a large Ziploc bag. Add the meat to the bag, squeeze out as much air as you can and seal the bag. Let this marinate for at least 1 hour.


When you’re ready to brown the meat, remove it from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before cooking to allow it to come to room temperature. This helps ensure the Carne Guisada will cook evenly. Cook in a pot until nicely browned and then remove to another container, in the left over juice sauté the onions and jalapeno's for ten  minutes then add the garlic cook it for an additional minute. The add the meat and  all the rest of the ingredients and cook slowly for about an hour.

I have added a brilliant blues song by Tony Tucker. There is nothing like eating so good food, drinking wine and listening to the blues.

 Lyrics: "Wait For The Night To Turn Blue"
It's a cold, cold world, that we live in today
Everybody hurts, each in their own different ways
So many things, that tear you up inside
We all need a warm touch, somewhere safe to hide
So I sit here by the fire and hold on to the night
And listen to the song that you sing in my life
I'll sit under the moon, I'll wait here for you
Wait for the night to turn blue
I'll wait for the calm, on the easy side of midnight
My heart will sing the song, of the quiet endless starlight
And I'll forget about the pain, that eats me up inside
Come on take my hand and somewhere in the blues we'll hide
So I sit by the fire and hold on to the night
Listen to the song, that you sing in my life
I'll sit under the moon, I'll wait here for you
I'll wait for the night to turn blue
Oh yeh, wait for the night 
Wait for the night to turn blue..


Ciara "Body Party" #Musicvideo #DianaMarySharpton. Attraction, More Than the Laboratory!

Ciara (1)

Introduction:


Sometimes you want to stay with someone, not only because it's magic and it's promising and it feels like home; but sometimes you find someone and you want to stay with him (or her)—because you're the same kind of animal.” 
― C. JoyBell C.

Ciara's new video BODY PARTY (2) is nothing but hot stuff cooking. 

Defiantly a good little show. I have attached the lyrics for your reading pleasure but then you're probably watching the hot video lol!

"Body Party"(3)
My body is your party, baby

I can't keep my hands off you, your body is my party
I'm doing this little dance for you
You got me so excited

Your body's my party, let's get it started

Boy you should know that your love is always on my mind

Rihanna "STAY ft. Mikky Ekko" #MUSICVIDEO #DianaMarySharpton

Rihanna (2)

Introduction:

Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.
― Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet


Just a quuick post with a down right sexy music by Rihanna. The song is titled "STAY ft. Mikky Ekko" (1) is like a good wine, long hot bath and candles. It just hits the spot! As matter of fact, she appears to bring a special sensuality to most of her music. I recommend. this song and listed the lyrics below.

Stay
All along it was a fever
A cold sweat hot-headed believer
I threw my hands in the air, said, "Show me something,"
He said, "If you dare, come a little closer."

Round and around and around and around we go
Oh now, tell me now, tell me now, tell me now you know.

Not really sure how to feel about it.
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can't live without you.
It takes me all the way.
I want you to stay

[Mikky:]
It's not much of a life you're living
It's not just something you take, it's given

Round and around and around and around we go
Oh now, tell me now, tell me now, tell me now you know.

Not really sure how to feel about it.
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can't live without you.
Yeah, it takes me all the way.
I want you to stay.

[Both:]
Ooh, ooh, ooh, the reason I hold on
Ooh, ooh, ooh, 'cause I need this hole gone
Funny you're the broken one but I'm the only one who needed saving
'Cause when you never see the light it's hard to know which one of us is caving.

[Rihanna:]
Not really sure how to feel about it.
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can't live without you.
Yeah, it takes me all the way.
I want you to stay, stay.
I want you to stay, oooh.

Remember music is my language and these are my thoughts tonight. So let me make it clear... "Sincerity has always been articulated, perceived and even caressed yet rationality within time increasingly has dimed your view. I don’t doubt your love!”  ~ DMS

"Believe in the power of a dangerous attraction
And, if all your wishes are fulfilled
With the opening of a paradox
How could you then speak in parables?
And ask the question
The only question
Who am I to feel so free from you?" - Harley Bell

STAY ft. Mikky Ekko (1)



Peace Diana

Enrique Iglesias - Bailando (Español) ft. Descemer Bueno, Gente De Zona #MUSICVIDEO #Opinion #DianaMarySharpton

Introduction:

My desire and wish is that the things I start with should be so obvious that you wonder why I spend my time stating them. This is what I aim at because the point of philosophy is to start with something so simple as not to seem worth stating, and to end with something so paradoxical that no one will believe it.”
― Bertrand Russell

When I wrote my original post titled “Summer Time Goals” on 5/22/2013, I was an entirely a different person, that I am today.

Time Line Catch-Up: 2021 living again and travel to different places.

 In 2020, I retired and have been pretty much locked up off and on in my apartment for a year because of a Chinese virus. I go to the gym and walking a mile three days a week during periods that they were open. Not happy about the "Locked Up" premise by Democrats. It does not solve anything and is destroying this country.

On 06/18/2012, I was fired from a ten and half year job and a week later accepted a position with my current employer. It was a lateral position; somewhat of a saving face decision on my part. Anyway, at the time of this post, I was realizing that the person that supervised me was a bully and he was set to defame my character, skills, and ultimate job security. It was stressful and extraordinarily depressing. There is a history of depression which probably goes back to my childhood and this is a story for a different day. Back to the job… well I have moved around a couple of times since then and now I am in a position where my supervisor is pushing my career growth in a positive direction.

In the original post, I spoke about dating and meeting someone special. Well the truth is that not more than a month later, I found out that this special person was married. I decided then not to go back to internet dating sites because all that I met were men playing around. I have been single since in body not in soul.

It was around the beginning of October 2013, if my memory serves me right that I met an amazing person. Not on a dating site but as a colleague. Well my life has changed 360 degrees thus be it good, bad, or indifferent varying on interjection from so many and their odious points of view. I will come back to this discussion at some point not now.

In December 2013, I broke my back and have subsequently recovered to a certain extent. This did not deter me.

Well, after I recovered in 2014, I started a photography business and began traveling to capture images that would take your breath away. I have been to many states such as Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Alabama. A year ago, I traveled to Australia. What a brilliant time and place. I want to go back so bad; maybe even retire there part-time and part-time travel to other parts of the world. I love Australia…

So, I am going to tell you about my goals to accomplish the desires stated in the last two sentences above.

Old Goals 2013 vs. 2017:
1.     In 2013: Work-out four times a week; swimming at least 20 minutes, walking 14 minutes, weights and 180 sit-ups. PUSH, PUSH, PUSH every limit until I am bone tired. Finally, weigh myself every morning. I want to lose 1-2 pounds a week and I am going to work very hard to maintain this goal. I have started this ritual today and by September I plan on being 12 to 24 pounds lighter. Update: Still working on this goal LOL! The good thing is that I am at 10 lbs. less than where I started; however, much needs to still be done… ROTFLMAO! I had to quit swimming so much because of the ear infections but I am back at working out daily minus many stops in between then and now.

2.     In 2013: I am going to re-start using “My Fitness Pal” application and log in all food calories consumed. I must be dedicated, consistent and not waver with a daily max of 1,200 calories. No snacks after 7:30 pm! Watch my salt intake like diet sodas and drink more water at least 16 ounces each day. This little app "keeps it real"! Update: Still using it and trying not cheat or lie to myself… J

3.     In 2013: Attend photography and writing workshops. I am already going to self-publishing work shop this Saturday and I am going to schedule a photography class by the end of next week. This is an effort to expand my horizons and accomplish my dreams all in one action. I have always wanted to write and publish a book of poetry and add pictures, I took. Update: Well this goal has changed. I did go to the writing workshop which was informative but my problem is more about patience, focus, and disability. Being dyslexic, I must rework written communication over and over… So, I am forcing myself to develop this writing process into a doable structure. I have taken a few classes in photography via YouTube and a camera shop owner but nothing works like experience. I believe that I am getting better at determining different setting to suit the situation, quickly. I have broadened my horizons a) started a photography business b) continue writing poetry and will at some point gather it together into a manuscript. This is not a priority now.

4.     In 2013: Move to a different apartment within the same complex. One that is on the bottom floor and has my dream layout. I believe my son will be moving in for a minute and this helps me and him financially. Rent will go down cumulative by $800.00 per month. No one can quarrel over saving money. Update: my son, his wife and baby daughter moved in due to financial difficulties so this goal has been moved out to the end of 2017.

5.     In 2013: Develop an interactive and closer relationship with my brothers, children and extended family and friends (i.e. call them and spend time with them). This is necessary! Update: My middle brother died in February 2016 which was a huge blow to the family and set us all into a quarreling mode. The good thing is that as time has pass my relationship with my brother seems to be coming around. My daughter, on the other hand did a little dirty ditty that hurt the living hell out of me. I have forgiven her and the situation but have not spoken to her since May 2016. After this event, I also lost the closeness of a friend I dearly love. 2016 has been a painful and reflective year.

6.     In 2013: Go on a week-end vacation to Las Vegas with someone! Maybe a girlfriend or someone that pays their own way! LOL! Update: I never went to Las Vegas but who knows what the future holds. I am the type of person that takes risks and chances… So, there still is time…LOL!

7.     In 2013: Sit out by the pool and just vegetate, read a book or two and listen to music. Update: Every summer without fail. This is a favorite thing for summer time.

8.     In 2013: Find a different venue to meet men, from the current “Internet Dating Scene”. I am soooooo burnt out with this option, but I get lonely. Update: I have reached a point in my life that being with someone who does not care is a waste of my time. I met someone that I care for deeply. It’s complicated and really, I have no interest or desire to start looking for someone else at this point. So, I walk alone unless for a miracle he would show up and walk along with me.

9.     In 2017: Push for that promised raise and title change at my current employment. This is crucial for me to afford a comfortable retirement somewhere. Consider retiring abroad, investigate associated living and medical costs in different venue options. Start this research before June 2017. I have three and half years to get a plan inplace.

10.  In 2017: Start seriously paying down my bills. No unplanned spending.… and stick to my budget. Pay off my car loan and move to a cheaper apartment. Work on the student loan forgiveness program.

11.  In 2017: Start talking to the person I love! Invest time in my business and build up the blogs to produce revenue.

Well I will add and subtract from this list as time goes by…remind me if you’re interested for now I have a date with 24-hour fitness J!

Dancing
I see you and this takes my breath away.
When you look at me I feel my heart
(My heart beats slowly)
And in silence your look tells a thousand of words.
The night when I'm begging of you not to let the sun rise.

(Dancing, dancing, dancing, dancing)
Your body and mine filling the void
Moving up and down (up and down)
(Dancing, dancing, dancing, dancing)
That fire inside me is driving me crazy
It's filling me up

With your physics and your chemistry and your anatomy
Beer and tequila and your mouth with mine
And I can't take it any more (and I can't take it any more)
And I can't take it any more (and I can't take it any more)
With this tune, your colour, your fantasy
With your philosophy my head is empty
And I can't take it any more (and I can't take it any more)
And I can't take it any more (and I can't take it any more)

I want to be with you, to live with you
to dance with you, to have
a crazy night with you (a crazy night)
and kiss your mouth (kiss your mouth)
I want to be with you, to live with you
to dance with you, to have a crazy night with you,
with a tremendously crazy one
(Ooooh, ooooh, ooooh, ooooh)

You look at me and take me to another dimension
(I'm in another dimension)
Your heartbeats accelerate my heart
(Your heartbeats accelerate my heart)
What irony of fate not being able to touch you
embrace you and feel the magic of your smell

(Dancing, dancing, dancing, dancing)
Your body and mine filling the void
Moving up and down (up and down)
(Dancing, dancing, dancing, dancing)
That fire inside me is driving me crazy
It's filling me up

With your physics and your chemistry and your anatomy
Beer and tequila and your mouth with mine
And I can't take it any more (and I can't take it any more)
And I can't take it any more (and I can't take it any more)
With this tune, your colour, your fantasy
With your philosophy my head is empty
And I can't take it any more (and I can't take it any more)
And I can't take it any more (and I can't take it any more)

I want to be with you, to live with you
to dance with you, to have
a crazy night with you (a crazy night)
and kiss your mouth (kiss your mouth)
I want to be with you, to live with you,
to dance with you, to have a crazy night with you,
with a tremendously crazy one


Peace Diana
