Beautiful People


On this anniversary, thousands of people, more eloquent than I, will report and write about that day.  I was lucky not to personally know anyone who died on 9/11 and can provide no words of wisdom, understanding or comfort to those who unimaginably suffered the loss of their husband, wife, child, sister, brother, mother or father.  But that does not mean those of us not personally affected remain untouched.  As Americans, each of us was affected, if not forever changed, that day.  (quoted by Bernard Goldberg).


Feelings of fear makes you want to just skip over this day…So in an effort to counter dark fears to somehow find light and inspirations, Dalai Lama’s words shared on this day of remembrance:

To the question posed, “why didn’t you fight back (the Chinese government)?”, he answered,

“…war is obsolete, you know. Of course the mind can rationalize fighting back … but the heart, the heart would never understand. Then you would be divided in yourself, the heart and the mind, and the war would be inside you.”

We pray for the victims who are no longer in this world. RIP.  We pray for their families who must be waging a war within at all times. May they find solace and peace.

Yes, she did.
Quoted by Yoko Ono, “POSITION PIECE” (1963 summer).

Yoko is SO weird and it’s not a culture gap. Japanese think she’s weird too. Very weird. Eccentric, Over the top… It is doubtful that anyone really likes her or understands her at her home country either. She holds a very humanistic view but herself, viewed as part alien in seemingly all societies. Maybe that’s the charm. A very handsome woman in her youthful days and if she were only a man, then she would have been more accepted as some cool hip artist (still weird) with striking dark piercing looks. She’s no more an artist than Andy Warhol is questioned as a “real” artist. She actually can sing in tune and she actually can sing beautifully but chose to screech into the microphone to a point you want to wring her neck or plug your ears in utter disgust. She’s always making us feel mostly uncomfortable – but John Lennon understood her “genius” and loved her…

She does not care – and that’s her beauty. That she does not care what people think of her. No YELP rating is going to deter her from expressing herself. Even if I am full of judgments, one of which is – Emperor(well, Empress, in this case) has no clothes…she is not the least bit concerned. She doesn’t care about the detractors and the critics and the haters. Now, that’s freedom for real in action.

She’s 80, yes, EIGHTY (and a half) now. Must be the YOGA.

Distance doesn’t exist, in fact, and neither does time. Vibrations from love or music can be felt everywhere, at all times.

Ahhh, Yes.
