FArFri — 12/28/12 ‘Sponge Trek’

Thought I’d end FArFri 2012 with a laugh! Here’s three drawings from a series I’m creating — Sponge Trek!   (Sponge Bob characters in Star Trek gear!)   I’m especially proud of ‘Spockward’; it’s amazing how Squidward fits so well into the Spock persona! More to come soon, enjoy, and Happy New Year! -Therese

Wideo Wednesday ‘The Winter Song’ by Angel.

Hi Everybody,

Just posting a little holiday cheer.   Now we all know that there are a lot of horrendous Christmas songs out there, so I thought I’d post a lovely song, celebrating the beauty of Winter and all the joy it can bring.  I love this song, can’t believe it never made the charts!  I’ll take this any day over some of the swill we’re forced to listen to as we do our Christmas shopping! (Next year I’ll post a full list of the worst I can think of).   The only problem with this song is that it’s too short! I can imagine it going on for another 5 or 6 minutes with an extended choir part!    Enjoy, and I do wish you all all a beautiful Christmas and Holiday  Season.  Love, Therese

Closing for a while. Be back Soon

As a mother and a human being, I am so sick after the horrific events in Connecticut yesterday, as I’m sure you all are.  The only good thing that can be said about the hell that all these families and the nation are going through is that it puts life into perspective.  We Americans (and all the Earth) MUST come back to what is really important in our lives, Our Families, Our Work, and Our Commitment to making the world a better place for ALL HUMANITY.  I know my little blog gives a few giggles to a few people, but this is, in reality, just a frivolous distraction from reality.   Nostalgia is fine, but my children will only be children for so long, as will yours.  We only have RIGHT NOW.   So turn off your computer and all your media devices for at least a few days.  Please pray for the families of this latest insane massacre, pray for the hell that they’re going to live with for the rest of their lives, and that somehow, in time, they will move on. Hug your children and families.  I’ll be back soon.  With Love and Blessings, Therese

FArFri — Just for you, a Box O’Spocks!

Hello everyone!  A special FArFri for you today! Wishing you all a beautiful and safe Holiday Season and a very Happy New Year!  Thanks for all your support!  As a little present , I offer you — a Box O’ Spocks!

For  a guy who is supposedly emotionless. Spock sure  SMILES a lot, especially in Season 1.  Although most of these smiles were generated through an alien force, like Henoch or Kollos, it’s  all the better for us!  To me, whenever Spock smiles, it was less Spock and pure  Nimoy.  May you find your holidays as pleasant! love, Therese 🙂

Wideo Wednesday-Remembering Ravi Shankar

Ravi Collage by Therese

I was sad to hear that the great sitar musician Ravi Shankar passed away yesterday, he was 92.   Shankar was a master of the sitar and many may be familiar with him as an influence on the music of The Beatles (especially George Harrison) in the late 60’s.   He was also the father of musicians Anoushka Shankar and Norah Jones.  May he rest in peace.  His music always could take one to another mystical plane.  Enjoy this meditation:
