"Our villains are our best teachers"

Sitting out on the back porch, catching up with some good friends on a cool crisp night. Discussing and politican about what's next on the horizon, but maintaining contentment with the current plane. My beautiful friend introduced me to this fantastic metaphor to life. "You know how you sometimes see a lone eagle, carefree and majestic in the sky?," she asked. "Occasionally you might witness a couple disgruntled crows who come and try to interrupt the eagle's flow." Who knows why the crows do this, but maybe they're just bitter, jealous or maybe they're just a couple of fools who grew up with a nasty upbringing. Whatever their intentions are, were and always will be, the eagle will always remain unphased and hip to the fact that he (or she) is the cream of the crop, the pick of the litter. Without bragging or boasting eagles have this way about them that almost seems effortless, humble and even God-like. They are, after all, God's creation so I guess it's an innate quality. We all have these qualities within us, so next time ask yourself: Are you an eagle or are you a crow?

Thanks Xochitl xoxo

I'm pleased to have found your website through a couple of searches...finally used your first name and found the Vancouver View magazine with an article and your site. Someone's done a nice piece of graphics and hosting for your site--and, most importantly, the music streams well. Fine presentation for your warm, mellow music.

I found your article in The Vancour View magazine as well...and am so glad for magazines and things that you come across 'by chance' that introduce new elements into your life. I have not yet listened to all of your songs, but so far am absolutely loving your sound, and really love what you wrote - its kind of funny because I think about that all the time wondering why they even try to bother the eagles. There is so much to learn from God's creatures, and if we only took time to watch and learn and listen. We should all choose to be like the eagles....and knowing that no matter what we know who we are and where we are going, and no little 'crow' can scare us or shake us out of what we know we are, because our sights and goals and main source of life is not coming from them, and they have no control over us. Unfortunately, sometimes we forget that fact.
