Entry #31: The Birds Delightful Songs, Our Solar Initiative & Kyle Richards of Beverly Hills Breaks A Universal Law Wide Open

Dear All:
Winter's spell is upon us. These days can be as mild as a late July day in San Francisco and/or as cold bone chilling as it gets. The dancing, curly leaves have left us and now we take notice of the rough, dark grey tree branches (no more velvet green or marmalade lollipops, good enough to eat.) As the craggy branches tap on our windows from the blistery, angry winds, they remind us of a brutally cold world outside and how "being warm" is a luxury. 

We don't mind because we all know the magic of winter. The air quality is at its best and though the winter's sun provides warmth like no other, it brings the bird population back to the yard for early morning chanting and singing, yahoo!

As as the sun got stronger with today's journey, so did the the happy "fluffing and clucking" of the birds. Early this morning, the birds' energy seemed more blissful and alive than ever (1/17/12).  As the sun had its moment of bright today, I could hear the cardinals' long drawn chirping, the fat starlings' screechy cry and the sparrows' whimsical calls penetrating-- the sound of all the bird's clatter. It was not of this earth. I was again humbled by this "angelic suggestion" and the way it makes me feel. God is the birds delightful songs, right? As the bright sun light softened, so did their songs. Well, is God is light, so there you go. 

Get Over It Please Tweets
  1. The birds sing their delightful songs this bright January morning (1/17/12). 
  2. "God is the music."--Oprah Winfrey to Steven Tyler on OWN 2012
Just as God is light, sun is warmth. And while I was going to discuss warmth as a luxury, I've just asked myself why don't I know jack shit about Solar Energy and Power. Darrell and Jenny Ford of Bayport, NY are you out there? Is it working really well in your home and providing the warmth you had hoped for while reducing your energy bills? In all of our green efforts, why isn't solar power part of the fabrication of all homes, especially since Iran really wants to fuck with us now? Why aren't we accessing Solar Power on a higher level? Is the install too great an expense on our existing homes? Anyone? 

As the birds led their heavenly choir this morning and the sunshine warmed the day's journey, I came across one of the "stunning" themes of our beloved Kyle Richards of Beverly Hills Housewives, new book, Life is Not A Reality Show. She simply states, "A lot of people want love, but they don't give it (when given the chance). I see so many of my friends with their husbands; they don't think that they need the same attention as we do. I want my husband to feel like no one is going to love and adore him like I do. You'd be surprised when you give that much love what you get in return."--Kyle Richards. I was very surprised to learn that a huge celebrity, from Beverly Hills could articulate one of the most exciting and influential universal laws ever! 

So if we keep "giving love" from a place of strength (this goes for all of our loved ones, in addition to our darling husbands, partners and lovers) til the cows come home, 1) we "give all the love" we have no matter what 3) we "give love" even if it is not returned, we still have love 4) if we "give love" to others, they may learn how to give love back 5) if we keep "giving love" we cannot be disappointed, ever 6) if we continually "give love", our hearts become bigger 7) we can teach men how to be better at giving than taking, I'm just sayin... 8) we can teach the world at "giving love" in the difficult moments of conflict 9) if we "give love" we surely have less fear, right? 10) we "give love" to husbands like we do our children and animals, then we have a real chance at happy

Thank you all for reading in your super busy days of January (yikes). If we seek the divine just outside the back door, (and I am talking divine), we consider Solar Energy as a source of warmth and comfort, (but on a grander scale and I will get my head out of my ass on this one too!) and continually practice the art of "giving love" (thank you very dear, spunky and super famous at the moment, Kyle Richards) than nothing can go that wrong right?

Let's pray for the women, children and animals who need our determined and fierce protection at all times.

With Love and Sincerely,

    kk, keep the love comin' love to be lifted up every time and always reminded to focus on the good xxoxxoxoxojenny

  2. Hi Jenny and Darrell:

    You and Darrell have taught me many lessons about llife, adventure and comparative religion in my life (since I was quite young) and I am so thankful to you both.

    I hope the call out to you re: your solar panels is ok

    How about this windy and cold winter day?

    Kristen and Brady

  3. We cannot give what we do not have. So, if we give love, we have love. It's that simple.

  4. loved this one. I, too, have bee grateful for the luxury of my warm home and all it's pleasures.

    as for solar heat, the reasons you don't know more about it is because, IMO, is lobbyists and politicians don't want you to. they work hard at keeping the oil machine going. it is very, expensive initially. I am not sure, but I think the "worthwhile" point is something like ten years... Not bad in my eyes, but you need the dough upfront.

  5. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my IPad, but really dislike typing on it...... Look at all those mistakes!!!! Oy. You know how neat and clean I like things...a flaw for sure, but I own it. Xoxo. ;)

  6. Hi Liz:

    And our dearly beloved Mother Theresa would say the same thing!

    Thanks lamb for checking in.


  7. Dear Barbie Girl:

    We need a direct and spunky bunny like yourself right in there with the congress and house of representative population! They would listen to you with all of your courage and organizational skills!

    Yup. Love you dear lamb til the cows come home. It is such a treat to see you right here!
    I'm going to go and get over myself right now!

    Ha Ha.

    Hi doll. I guess that "giving love" till it hurts is a hard lesson learned. Sounds like something so elementary but somehow life gets so complicated. Much Love, hope to see you soon

  9. Hi Donna:
    ALways wonderful to see you at GOYP!

    I know but if we continually give to our loved ones (from a place of strength) than we really cannot be disappointment. Is it a way of happy detachment? I know all about this feelings girl.

    Love you til the cows come home - always.


  10. Oh, Kristen - me and Mother Theresa! Oh my! :)

  11. Another fabulous post from my guru, poet, environmental activist friend. Great to read about Darrell and Jenny in your blog. I need to get on that solar bandwagon too. I was so glad that Obama rejected the Keystone XL pipeline. Yay! At least temporarily. We have to start investing in alternative energy and stand up to Big Oil!

    You are a much better spokesperson than I because you speak so eloquently from your heart and your spirit. I'm in my head too much! Your posts get me back on the heart track. Thank you, my wise and deep friend. Love you xoxo

    Off to visit Liz!

  12. Hi Susan:
    Thank you for checking in and always I mean always encouraging me along the path.

    We will all find our path to what it is we are supposed to be doing somehow - cause that is all that we have.

    For me, detachment is the only way to get through this wonderful world, and in other words Getting Over Myself and going within.

    Love you keep the positive energy coming our way.

  14. Hiya Jodina:

    Love you til the cows come home!


  15. Hi Toddy:
    Thank you for always being my muse when scenarios arise.
