Join this adventurous little sea star and his best buddy Barnaby (a blob fish) as they travel through the beautiful deep blue sea, meeting many other creatures of the deep. When the two friends finally stumble upon the perfect present, Alistar needs to make a difficult decision, which only he can make. When he does, the little sea star learns that there are times when it is not the present that is important, but the thought behind it.

For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

Sooo…Let’s Talk Miley…

These past few years no one has pulled more stunts than Gaga – wait – stunts was the wrong word. Gaga doesn’t pull “stunts”. Whether you like her work or not, she’s a true artist and what she shocks us with on stage is always an interpretation of well-written music, behind which she has a message, delivered by a voice that is one of the best of the best. Now let’s talk Miley.

That performance last night was the perfect rendition of a stunt. It was not art. There was no well-written song, clearly there was only one message – a little girl rebelling against something, and it was delivered with a weak vocal. In fact, I can’t even bring myself to provide a link in my post for those of you who haven’t seen it. Just go on Facebook or YouTube – you can’t miss it. This is a picture of a little girl who is an A-List performer with an entourage and a circle of family and friends, some of which probably tried to talk her out of this train wreck, but she wouldn’t listen. And, if I had my guess, even after all the reviews, most of which are negative, she was sipping her morning coffee, defending it to death.

It saddens me that a girl who has so much going for her probably refuses to take the advice of some people who care about her very much. The only saving grace is that she is Miley and has already made it to the top and will remain there – well – just because she’s Miley. If a performer who is not quite C or B list, struggling to get noticed, went out there on their big chance and did that, they’d be finished before they even got started. Miley will be okay. She will learn a lot, eventually, and in her own time.

Everyone, not only performers, have to have their time to rebel and take the “this is MY work and I’ll do it as I please” road whether it’s a train wreck or not. It’s that spark of inner independence that starts us on a path of growth. We all pull “stunts”. Most of us just don’t do it on national TV. It’s “the morning after”, when the critics start cackling, and we realize what we’ve done, that sets the course for some self-examination. The journey to growth and change begins there. And so it will for Miley.

And so, as another day goes by, today they’ll be no picture because this is a G-rated blog, it will be interesting to see where Miley goes with this, and…I have written.

PS – Let us not lose sight of the fact that the little twit stole the show show right out from under Gaga – and she did it wearing a lot more clothes. Hmmm…maybe that’s why she’s smiling while sipping her morning coffee.
