Entry #33: My Ever Loving Chickadees, The Revival of Darfur's Destiny and Doing What Is Asked of Me (No Back Talk Please)
Winter was completely quiet this year. It felt like spring all winter season, and it was beautiful. We've had very little rainfall and unusually moderate temperatures. Yesterday's sunshine was not of this world! Last evening's (thank you daylight savings time) twilight created a bird's clatter (with my ever loving Chickadees, with angelic Cardinals and my friends, the Robins) like no other, in the backyard. These birds and their genius are of-- the purest calling!
The branches are still craggy, waiting for their friends, the light green buds to join them for the "Dance of the Season." Trailing cherry blossoms are set to start the opening number which is, the cherry vanilla twirl (delicious, can't wait). Sweet purple crocuses are determined and popping up in the darkest of this winter's harsh soil. They don't mind because it is Spring!

- The birds clatter this spectacular twilight evening (3/14/12)-- is of the purest calling. Thank you!
- The backyard birds are chirping loudly which is causing a flurry this twilight evening, (3/14/12).
- How can you not feel hope when you see the flowers?
With the birds so happy and springtime's determination, I look above for the revival of Darfur's destiny and wonder how does a situation arise like this on earth, with so many good and caring people everywhere? On a lighter note, is love more than just having the same values? Is it doing whatever is asked of us-- with an open heart and no back talk please?

People are a wonderful universe.
I am still amazed of unfinished business in the Sudan. Tomorrow, March 16 is the Day Of Action for Darfur. 500,000 men, women and children are now at risk of starvation in Sudan's Nuba mountains and Blue Nile (only place where they are safe) because of the god damn corrupt sudanese government whom are blockading food and humanitarian aid. While on the phone making my $25 donation, I asked my representative, "Does George Clooney still support this foundation?" She said, "He is here today testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee at the hearing, Sudan, South Sudan: Independence and Insecurity." I was relieved to learn that one of the most beloved actors of our time, is committed to helping these people out in desperate times, no matter how long it takes.
"Clooney blames Sudan's President Omar al-Ashir along with two other men in his raids for the violence perpetuated in the Sudan."--CNN. He adds, "There are alot of ways to attack this problem, 1) one is to do what we did with terrorist groups, which is go after the money," he says. 2) "The other way is to actually work with China, not try and to guilt them, but work with them." Thank you, Mr. Clooney!
Doing what is asked of each other (within reason), was a deal closer for Todd and I, right baby? You have mentioned this idea a few times since that cocktail evening at the Gansevort in NYC. So, if I do what is asked of me , 1) we will build more trust 2) you will do what I ask of you 3) it will reduce our conflict(s) 4) I am doing what I may not want to do, which means living in the moment 5) we are validated (yahoo!) 6) we are living in a higher principle of values 7) it is selfless 8) we are nourishing our partnership, not depleting it with noise 9) we are checking our own character(s) 10) our good acts mirror our reality. This is all asked under the condition that there is "no back talk, please." This is revealing, to say the least. There you go!

- I must listen to what is unfavorable about myself in a positive way.
- I am responsible for everything I am feeling today.
Thank you all for reading in your busy days this early spring season. If the birds continue their genius banter in the backyard, and if Mr. George Clooney continues his brutal fight to save people from starvation (because of three fucking guys, that is how this got started?) and if I do what I am supposed to do in my partnership(s), cause I love you til the cows come home, (will you do the same for me?) then 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,
