A key word that you will see:

Fragmentation: a mental process where a person becomes intensely emotionally focused on one aspect of themselves, such as “I am angry” or “no one loves me,” to the point where all thoughts, feelings and behavior demonstrate this emotional state, in which, the person does not or is unable to take into account the reality of their environment, others or themselves and their resources. This is a term that my therapist and I use and is on the continuum of dissociation.

A Night Out To The Walt Disney Concert Hall!!!

A week ago Saturday, I went to the Walt Disney Concert Hall for the first time.  The sound is absolutely amazing...best that I've ever heard.  I finally saw the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles live.  It was more traditional choral music, which is the last video, and actually them singing.

However, there we two songs that really brought me to tear up because I really heard the lyrics.  Both have to do with being authentic with yourself.  Obviously, the videos below are from other artists.  The two songs are "I Am What I Am," and "True Colors."  I hope that you enjoy the songs and listen to the words which are posted below the video.


You with the sad eyes
don't be discouraged
oh I realize
it's hard to take courage
in a world full of people
you can lose sight of it all
and the darkness inside you
can make you fell so small

But I see your true colors
shining through
I see your true colors
and that's why I love you
so don't be afraid to let them show
your true colors
true colors are beautiful
like a rainbow

Show me a smile then
don't be unhappy, can't remember
when I last saw you laughing
if this world makes you crazy
and you've taken all you can bear
you call me up
because you know I'll be there

And I'll see your true colors
shining through
I see your true colors
and that's why I love you
so don't be afraid to let them show
your true colors
true colors are beautiful
like a rainbow


I am what I am
I am my own special creation.
So come take a look,
Give me the hook or the ovation.
It's my world that I want to take a little pride in,
My world, and it's not a place I have to hide in.
Life's not worth a damn,
'Til you can say, "Hey world, I am what I am."
I am what I am,
I don't want praise, I don't want pity.
I bang my own drum,
Some think it's noise, I think it's pretty.
And so what, if I love each feather and each spangle,
Why not try to see things from a diff'rent angle?
Your life is a sham 'til you can shout out loud
I am what I am!
I am what I am
And what I am needs no excuses.
I deal my own deck
Sometimes the ace, sometimes the deuces.
There's one life, and there's no return and no deposit;
One life, so it's time to open up your closet.
Life's not worth a damn 'til you can say,
"Hey world, I am what I am!"

I. LOVE. LA CAGE AUX FOLLES. Oh my goodness! I saw it just last month and it was absolutely fabulous. Have you seen it? It's all about being yourself.

Wishing you well,

I don't know why, but my all my email from yesterday was not delivered until this morning, so I had no idea that I had comments.

JBR,

I am going to post the Validation video this week. I love the background love story too. Softy that I am.

NOS,

No, but I own it and plan to see it. My therapist recommended it to me.

take care,
CC
