You, no I mean - You are the wind beneath my wings!
We all need someone to lift us up
Inspiration and uplifting.
I am a writer. I am trying to change course and write on conviction. Now I write offline in legal technical and marketing venues. I also have been blessed with the opportunity to write poetry to my lovers and express views in English from our beloved Philippine, Laotian, Chinese, Mexican and Vietnamese immigrants, along with Native Americans and the homeless communities.
It truly has been great to right for a living and in enjoy it greatly and will continue with it long after it is no longer a living but only a passion. This is how things are taken to the next and better levels in all walks of life and I intend it to be one in writing also.
A degree in Linguistic Philosophy, a life time of Anthropology, and a Doctorate in Law has blessed me to be able to understand another and write words for them.
But now I have endeavored to write with some passion. Yes there is passion in an appellate court brief but it is different.
So as we are taught I look for expert advice.

Writers are the wind beneath my wings
I love to read what they write. I love to learn what they teach. I love to ponder their poetry. I love to be inspired by their inspirationals. And I love to salivate and cook their recipe's.
Today a friend named Theresa dropped by my place for some reading. I had not seen her for a few weeks. I quickly brewed some tea, and came back to chat with her a bit. She lifted me up with a sweet warm breath of support. My buddy Chris sent something private that made me really feel good, he maybe younger but he is a dad to me. A folk named Rolly cheered my day with a warm fireplace and some good preaching. My buddy Billy had a few supportive words. And a new flame Ruth gave me some love. I could go on all day!
The classic song
So here is a song for this -- no not Bette
I suppose I like this guys range --- it reminds me of a wonderful gift given me.
Maybe I do not thank my children enough for their making me a better man. Of course my wives and wonderful parents and siblings are an updraft.
But you my fellow travellers of writing are the wind beneath my wings.
I count you as the grace given

That hat looks silly in a photo but it has saved my head and neck from burn and filtered my water.
Do you know what it takes to lift someone up?
I do not know. I only know that sometimes a "hi" does the trick for me.
I will go finish finger painting with my best little buddy. But as I help him write the letter A, I will think of those who helped me to write it with meaning.

Just great music
Sometimes we have to just relax
Relax and let someone else but that wind whenever and wherever we need it and let it lift us up. Lose control and just sail on that loving wind.
