This past week or so has been a real roller coaster, some serious disappointments, and some good things too.

A story about "Strangers in the night" by Jerry E Smith, 12/3/15

I tell a story about "Strangers in the night"...One of the first times I performed the song (I just sing on that one) near the end of the first verse, it goes "Something in your eyes, was so exciting"(I say as I point and look at one of the ladies), "Something in your smile, was so inviting" (I say looking at another) "something in my heart, told me I must have YOOOO" ( singing to a third)

Then there are a couple more lines, and then an instrumental break.

Now, Keep in mind that I'm out, on the floor amongst the ladies while all this is going on.
When the instrumental break came on, and I wasn't singing, the "Something in my heart " lady jumped up and grabbed me, and away we went!
I said "Y'all get pictures of this, you won't ever see it again." And now, forevermore, when there is an instrumental break, I come back behind my keyboard. I think: "Y'all gonna have to come GIT me"

Back when I was a drinkin' man, get a half a bottle of liquor in me, and I'd be out there making a fool of myself, and having a big ole time.

The next time I was at this facility, and went to perform that song, the same lady CHASED ME ha ha ha

"Disappointment" by Jerry E Smith, 12/1/15

Disappointment hides in plain sight, with some of the best disguises,
Friends, or who you thought were your friends, can stab you in the
Back without batting an eye. Usually, all over money. No matter
The good that you do, no matter the love that you share, the
Compassion, the positive vibes you do your best to spread;
When it comes to being a control freak, even a few ¢ents
Will bring out the vipers. Does this mean that I will stop
Spreading love? No. Does this mean that I will start
Being bitter, probably for a while; it is my nature.
I fight with this all the time, and I have made
Great strides, but I am still human. I will
Love those who have hurt me, but I’ll
Take steps to prevent it happening
Again. Self Preservation, is a must.

"The Blues" by Jerry E Smith

It is hard, so very hard, to not get depressed when things happen;
Adversity can be a test of your integrity, your stamina and will to
Succeed and overcome. A line from the song illustrates this well:
“Those raindrops are fallin' on my head, They keep fallin'... But
There's one thing, I know, The blues they send to meet me,
Won't defeat me, It won't be long 'till happiness Steps up
To greet me... “ These blues won’t keep me down, and I
WILL survive, my words and my convictions will only
Grow stronger, and I WILL keep on doing what I
Know is right. Even in the face of detractors.
Love is its own reward, compassion and
Caring need no thanks, no recompense
They should be like breathing. Just
Do it and keep on doing it.
Jerry E Smith 12/1/15

I'm not 'giving up' Stella, not by any means. I have continued to write my little items, and posting then in FB and tsu, just as I always did.
The main, perhaps only reason I came here and created this account, was the allure of being paid for my writings. Now that Wikinuts is no longer a paying platform, I have little reason to go the the extra trouble of loading images, copy/pasting my writings, choosing a tag etc etc...some of which is not required for me to post in the other places.
It's all good, but thank you for your comment and continued attention. ♥
