Issues What is Co-dependency? Here is a poem of sorts that may give you some food for thought. My good felling about who I am stems from being liked by you. Your struggles affect my serenity. My mental attention focuses on solving your problems or relieving your pain. My mental attention is focused on pleasing you, protecting you. My own hobbies and interests are put aside. My time is spent sharing your interests and hobbies. My fear of rejection determines what I say or do. The dreams I have for my future are linked to you. My fear of your anger determines what I

say or do. My social circle diminishes as I involved myself with you. You begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts, and presents aren’t promises. So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers. You learn and you learn , with every letting go, and every goodbye, you learn.

Not believing the labels. Living, Loving and Giving of themselves w/ the gifts they are/were endowed by the Creator. .The Universe. Joan Baez /' ba?.?z/ (born January 9, 1941 as Joan Chandos Báez) is an American folk singer, songwriter, musician, and activist. Baez has a distinctive vocal style, with a strong vibrato Baez has performed publicly for over 55 years, releasing over 30 albums. Fluent in Spanish as well as in English, she has also recorded songs in at least six other languages. She is regarded as a folk singer, although her music has diversified since the 1960s, encompassing everything from folk rock and pop to country and gospel music. Baez was instrumental in founding the USA section of Amnesty International in the 1970s, and has remained an active supporter of the organization. In December 2005, Baez appeared

and sang "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" at the California protest at the San Quentin State Prison against the execution of Tookie Williams. She had previously performed the same song at San Quentin at the 1992 vigil protesting the execution of Robert Alton Harris, the first man to be executed in California after the death penalty was reinstated. She subsequently lent her prestige to the campaign opposing execution of Troy Davis by the State of Georgia Baez has also been prominent in the struggle for gay

and lesbian rights. In 1978, she performed at several benefit concerts to defeat the Briggs Initiative, which proposed banning all gay people from teaching in the public schools of California. Later that same year, she participated in memorial marches for the assassinated San Francisco city supervisor, Harvey Milk, who was openly gay. In the 1990s, she appeared with her friend Janis Ian at a benefit for the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, a gay lobbying organization, and performed at the San Francisco Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride March. Her song "Altar Boy and the Thief" from Blowin' Away (1977) was written as a dedication to her gay fanbase.

Cannabis Corner

1. Many people die from alcohol use. Nobody dies from cannabis use. 2. People die from alcohol overdoses. There has never been a fatal cannabis overdose. 3. The health-related costs associated with alcohol use far exceed those for cannabis

use. 4. Alcohol use damages the brain. Cannabis use does not. 5. Alcohol use is linked to cancer. Cannabis use is not. 6. Alcohol is more addictive than cannabis. 7. Alcohol use increases the risk of injury to the consumer. Cannabis use does not. 8. Alcohol use contributes to aggressive and violent behavior. Cannabis use does not.

9. Alcohol use is a major factor in violent crimes. Cannabis use is not. 10 Alcohol use contributes to the likelihood of domestic abuse and sexual assault. Cannabis use does not. If I were to choose one of the two for own my children–for their health, safety and wellness, cannabis would win hands down, especially considering its therapeutic potential when used responsibly and appropriately. But that’s not the message the mainstream wheels of deception want out there is it?

Affirmations for the Moment Change Your Perception— When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. Wayne Dyer "For each new morning with its light, For rest and shelter of the night, For health and food, for love and friends, For everything Thy goodness sends."-Ralph Waldo Emerson "Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough."-- Oprah Winfrey

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more.” Melody Beattie "Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”—Steve Jobs There is a voice in the Universe urging us to remember our purpose for being on this great Earth. This is the voice of inspiration, which is within each and every one of us. DR. WAYNE W. DYER

The Haps Met a nice lady at the Marks St. Senior Center. She didn’t have cable so I gave her the copy of “Waiting to Inhale” that I was saving to send to anyone who wrote to me. Since I didn’t hear from anyone...I gave it to her.

form and I’ll be most happy to send you some.

Did I mention that there is free pool/billiards there on Fridays at nine a.m.?

I also heard this great advice for changing my thinking and thus the ways in which I act and react.

Wonderful goings on in the garden. This bloom in the top of our bougainvillea is one. The bloom on a hibiscus branch I liberated from a tree on one of my walks. It is taking root and I am thrilled. Sent samples of my Mom’s Mosquito Mojo and Mom’s Delight Deodorant. Looking forward to feedback. If you’d like to try it, just fill out the subscription

If you are near college park and it’s Friday, may I suggest you try the Waldorf Salad at The White Wolf Café. They present live jazz at 9 p.m. Located at 1829 N. Orange Ave. 407-895-9911.

Hanging out with likeminded people is a good way to hear constant reinforcement of your own thoughts and beliefs. This also makes it easy to fall into "groupthink" and makes it more difficult to see (or acknowledge) faults, shortcomings and falsehoods of our own. When I ever hang around other people I shall remember this one.

Take time to appreciate the things that are good in your life. Try to take a moment each day to appreciate your loved ones, to honor your achievements and to cherish the blessings in your life. If you have children, keep in mind how quickly they grow and cherish the joys they have brought into your life (and allow yourself to forget for the moment all the other things

they do). Think about how far you've come in your life's journey and the good deeds along the way that you've performed for others, as well as the good deeds others have performed for you. Also heard that any day above ground is a good day. :-)
