Dump That...(Speakers Required)




Zero, (or as I affectionately call her, Dumb Shit)

And get with this



Hero, Fred.

Music from the heart and watching this, it done my heart lots and lots of good. 

Vertigo is better and I am in full newsletter mode so time in the only thing spinning outta control right now. Just wanted to to share this beautiful story, let it touch you in my stead.  Now off to buy Fred's song on itunes!

SAM?! Am I going to cry...if I know I will then it might be easier to watch. Remember...I feel my way through life...????

Nick,
Yes my dear gentle hearted friend, you will cry but feeling your way through life is letting all the bits touch you. This is worth the tissues. I promise.

My Gorgeous Samantha,

You'd have to have a dead heart not to be moved by Fred and Lorraine's story. Very touching, and a powerful testament to what really matters in our world--and it's not wine.

And that Lorraine, man, she was quite the beauty! Though in Fred's eyes, it's clear she could have looked like me in a dress and he'd still have adored her.

I love you!

Ron My Love,
I adore you in a dress, you know that. You got my meaning, as I knew you would. Everyone with their tighties in a wad about stoopid baby achy breaky heart, as if she fucking matters. There are far more stories of love, passion, life long commitment and humanity like the one here with Fred his beautiful Lorraine and selflessness of that young man that had to put Fred's heart and words to music. These things matter, they touch and remind us and no matter how busy I am I appreciated taking the time to know them. Glad you did too Honey. I love you so!

And touch me it did. Thank you for sharing this moving vignette. (i often find that old "vigns" produce some of the more honest and compelling "ettes".)

Glad to hear you're whirling less and swirling more.
