"That's the power of love" - Huey Lewis

Huey Lewis and The News...what don't they know about life? They know it's "hip to be square", to do "it all for my baby" and of course, "where the heart of rock and roll is".

Huey hit the nail on the head when it comes to LOVE. Love is a crazy powerful emotion, it has to affect the human life more than anything. The object of love is what could easily shape on the direction one's life. Love of family, love of money, love of another, love of power. So many things to love in this world. Like everything else, we have to figure out what is the most important to us and weed out any distractions to loving what we choose to the best of our ability. That's not easy, there's lots of distractions out there flying at us rapidly every day. Stress, worry, fear to purely love something or someone is more of an obstacle then it sounds like it would be.

Today, Valentines Day, which has become more of an annoyance than a fun holiday to most, I choose to believe it's a holiday driven on by the "power of love"  (instead of the power of marketing...clearing my throat-Hallmark/Walgreens/Hersheys)- a day that you tell who you love that you love them, your romantic love, your friends that you love, your family that you love, hell, even yourself-must love yourself. Whatever you do today just try to do it out of love and maybe try to every other day too? I can't imagine that you'll regret doing something out of love :)

Happy Valentines, Day, everyone...spread the love, drink wine and eat chocolate....

some of my favorite beautiful words regarding love-

"And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make....." - The Beatles

"Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls." - Mother Teresa

1st Corinthians 13 - gets me everytime

 1 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
 4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
 8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
 13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

to my heart bursts with love for you (even though you went to Texas)

Their early work was a little too new wave for my tastes, but when Sports came out in '83, I think they really came into their own, commercially and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost. He's been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far more bitter, cynical sense of humour.

Teddy always compares and quotes from Seinfield.

Sometimes I wish he was a sitcom and I could cancel him...Man that was funny!
