Wishing to change. Washing to change. A little Spring Cleaning self help. These two are my desires these days. I revel in the opportunities that I am presented with. I am, 'wishing to change,' as well as 'washing to change.' In this case, I am using them interchangeably. With Spring around the corner, what better opportunity than now! Forget for one day, the Oscar's. Forget my talk about The Wizard of Oz, as I'm forgetting to have a huge follow up, after all of the renditions played out! "Wishing to change." What am I hoping to change? OMG. My heart and human side wishes to change just a few. However, my selfish and human side, say, too many to mention! Priorities: Heart and humanity. Usually they supercede all of my existence. Usually. -Bullying -Homeless -Jobless/Poverty -Animal cruelty -Illiteracy -Ignorance Those are my keypoints. So, with my "Washing to change," this is where I'll be able to make a difference. As I wash my clothes. As I wash my face. As I wash my hands. All of these epitomize the 'washing to change' factor. They all are a sign of renewal. Spring is a sign of renewal. After being 'dormant,' or "wishing to change," comes, 'renewal,' or "washing to change." I'll be able to make a difference in the way it impacts me. I'll have the means to do something substantial about it, and not have my life depend on it, as it has up to this point. Many of us want to save the human race, however, the selfish ego in us takes over. My selfish human side wants to save my human heart side. The human race will be saved...I will try to make a difference.

Alas! Glory days are here to stay. The skies are blue. The people on the streets cheer. No more darkness. No more sorrow. No more uproar. Alas! It's a new era. The tears of blood, are now tears of joy! Elation fills the streets. "Imagine all the people." -"Living life in peace." -"No countries." -"A brotherhood of man." -"Sharing all the world." -"I hope someday you'll join us." -"And the world will live as one." Back in 1971, this 3:03 poignant song, "Imagine," by John Lennon, took control of our world. Alas! It needs to be a different era. This same poignant song, Needs to take control of our planet! This song must prevail, for the lives Of the Venezuelan's. We are a, "Brotherhood of Man." We need to live, "Life in Peace." "I hope someday you'll join us." The 'Someday," is NOW. The world will live as one. Venezuela freed is possible. Imagine. The skies are blue. The people on the streets cheer. No more darkness. No more sorrow. No more uproar. Venezuela Freed!

Lately, well, "lately" is a relative term referring to the last couple of years or so. In reflecting about the "Dorothy" character, the psychology behind her. In reflecting about the "Wizard of Oz" and it's various elements. How this, "Judy Garland's" weakness, became so powerful. What a children's tale this became to be! The story adapted from the work of L. Frank Baum, about a Kansas girl and her journey over the rainbow. This past September 2013, Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz was seen in 3D! As if the Wizard of Oz weren't the super coolest anyhow, they come in and remake it in 3D! The premiere was held at the Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, Ca. They had nice quality, bedazzled t-shirts made for this historical occasion. I'm sure Dorothy's spirit was lingering around! She probably can't believe all of the 'hoopla,' surrounding this film. Especially since in 1939, she visited during the premiere of, "Babes in Arms." Her turnout afforded her the good fortune of having her handprints and shoes forever on display. She sat her precious hands and shoes in the "square of glory." Forever to be appreciated. Forever appreciated, never forgotten. The legacy she left behind. The children she left behind: Liza Minnelli, Lorna Luft, Joe Luft. Ya, I know, I didn't know she was Liza Minnelli's mom either! Did the "apple fall far from the tree?" Do her children rake their own fame? Do her children live off of being, "The son and daughter of..." Have they committed their lives to being a legend of their own? I can only imagine the tremendous pain and rampant pressure they carried, without "wanting." It is my hope that my children have a fruitful, fullfilled life of their OWN, based on their OWN achievements. That they learn the main ingredients in a successful run here in life, so that they may be relinquished of the pain and rampant pressures of, "the apple falling far from the tree."

Do you ponder about how to overcome an obstacle? Um, I certainly don't think so! I actually panic! People's lives are complicated by so Much 'over commitment', which the end result Could be chaos! For me it's not an over commitment, rather The simple effort of daily living. Priorities take priority. Okay, that's simple-they're ALL priority Or I wouldn't be 'spasaming' out! When I have 3 or realistically, 5-7 #1's on my 'To Do List,' they're all screaming For priority status and 'should've been done since Yesterday!' You know, 'Should-a, Could-a,Didn't!' I'm not a procrastinator. I just micromanage everything. Being a procrastinator, at least you're 'labeled' And you can get away with it-temporarily! However, when you micro-manage, the label Is unfavorable. However, it has no options but to work. So, how do you overcome obstacles? What tidbits do you place in order to attain your Overall goal? In the meantime, my dryer is buzzing, my dog's Want out, My ears are buzzing and I want out! Be well...

What is your purpose? To make people happy. Status: Unsuccessful Although I try, I know I will still be unsuccessful. So, I ask: What is your purpose? What are you doing to attain it? How can you attain it? How does or will this impact your life? All of these Q&A's impact mine. Thus, my attempt at making people happy and writing, "Case of Disappearing Tire Gunk."
