3 things that Johnny Denver taught me :-D

Sunday, July 21, 2013

To my fellow sparkers who are at a certain age,
They can relate to todays lesson

Some of my blog followers might be familiar on my interst on Johnny Denver
( just in case those of you not sure who he was he was a wonderful humanitarian musician who can sing , during the 1970's ( ohhhhhh dreamy vioce and handsome face) where was I? emoticon

Oh yes I didn't tell u why he made a impact in postivite way in my life etc.
This is what I learned so far...

1. Enjoy life .. Live here in the now ( kiss me and smile for me) leaving jet plane and just enough be here for today light to see the end - sweet surendder
To me that means to enjoy what life brings seeing the beauty of Nature ( mountains beaches flowers sunset) spending time with friends and learning new lessons of life. emoticon emoticon

2. Embrace the feelings of life ( somedays are diamondas some days are stones hard times won't leave me alone) or ( hope you forgotten seek the wisdom of children colors of the rainbow blessings for today)- rhyme and reasons this I'm working on newer lesson sometimes I struggle on feelings emoticon

3. Art is a powerful healer in life
When i was younger a teenager esecipllay when my sister passesed away I had the hardest time and scared of new feelings angre rejection darker side of feelings( one other person that comforted me in feeelings is mister rogers) Johnny is a master storyteller through song - some are heartbreaking to hear sometimes and also heals at the same time.

So when Johnny passed away it was like a double whammy ( dealing with my sister passing)- this time I confronted my feelings of parrals of Johnny and Mary,
through artwork and writing to sort out the conflicting feelings of loss. Now I'm on the healing journey and I embrace my artwork and show my work to others. emoticon

Thank you for visiting my blog and curious to know what other fans have learned from Johnny ( I have many lessons of Johnny to tell another time) emoticon

    Being deaf all my life, most music I grew up with in 60's 70's 80's I never understood the words. Sometimes I could not tell if male or female singer. I hear low (male) voices better than women...but then I heard Anne Murray at times and thought she was man, and heard David Bowie or some other men and thought they were women...

    So one day I was in the car (stop me if you heard my story befor?)... And this man was singing so strong and clearly "Sunshine... On my shoulders ... Makes me happy... " etc and I understood so much of the song! I didn't get all the words but I got so many of them. I was so impatient for the deejay to come on so my mom could tell me who was singing! And she said his name is John Denver.

    Now later I got a lot of his songs but I didn't like a lot of them, musically rhythm , but I do like a lot of them.

    Funny... I never thought to call him Johnny Denver - only John. Probably because I was madly in love with Donny Osmond during same time frame... Ha!

    Was so sad - and just happened to be visiting in California the year John Denver crashed in his plane. Guess he really did leave on a (jet) plane... Sad. But I have an idea of when he'll be back again....(not the exact date or time, tho - no one knows that.).

    How beautiful a recollection, when I was younger I wasn't a fan of his music but as I became older I gained a great appreciation and love of his music. I have his music on Spotify, I'm going to take a listen today to him~ emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I LOVED John Denver and was absolutely gob smacked sideways when I heard of his death. It was in an airplane crash right? I always stopped whatever I was doing when his songs came on...he had such a crystal clear voice and his words were so beautiful. I'm glad he gave you comfort and still does through his songs.

    I just wrote my blog today on how powerful art is..I was thinking of you dear friend as i wrote...you have made powerful advances forward and I believe a lot of them are through and because your love of creativity.

    Hugs, hugs and MORE hugs! Keep that artwork flowing! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I am too young to recall who he was. But I love the lessons you've learned from him. They are beautiful lessons. I am so sorry you are dealing with so many losses all at the same time. be good to yourself. Give yourself time to grieve and heal.
