Touching real feelings is waht that special song did for you
by: maurice

Oh how nice to have real feelings expressed. Thank you. Sadly many who abuse don't have real feelings. are not real human beings. They sadly don't feel the pain they cause and the effects of that pain on the beautiful, the innocent, the vunerable. Maybe when people are convicted of abuse and caged up a punisment might be to play A Very Special Song at regular intervals as part of their learning about real feelings and who the real person is behind their inflicting pain on the young and on others. Thank you for sharing your gut feelings with darlene and her visitors especially me. Always believe in yourself, have a healthy mind in a healthy body. Think Positive, Act Positive, Be positive, Live well, Laugh alot, Love much. beginning in front of the mirror with your wonderful and beautiful self. Have a good mirror image of that beautiful me in the mirror. Build up your SELF ESTEEM. I can: I will: I must simply because I am WORTH it.

I want to share another song
by: Scott Canada

Hi everyone.
I want to share another song with you. The artist is David Crosby from C.S.N.(Crosby,Stills,Nash)


The song is: A Thousand Roads

The version I am referring to is the acoustic live version(not studio). It can be found on the dvd: C.S.N.-The Acoustic Concert from 1991, I think. He put out a full rock version on his solo record but it IS NOT the same.

The song on the acoustic concert is done with just him on stage and his guitar and mic. A soul baring performance that says alot about how I feel. Ive listened to it many times and still get goose bumps from it.

Once I saw it on tv and raced to the stores to buy his tape. I was very disappointed when I got home and found that song was done with a complete band etc. It wasn't until years later that I discovered that that concert was available on dvd.

Tell me what path you would take. Toward the dark or toward the light?

"...There's a thousand roads up this mountain"..

".. you can get lost in a minute if you try.."

" Its probably enough that I was just laughing today...looking this close in your eyes.."
