'Glee' Cast Muses Over An All-Michael Jackson Episode

Posted: 02:16 PM ET

Via MTV.com

The good folks at “Glee” have already given us doses of pop icons Madonna and Lady Gaga, and Britney Spears is up next in season 2.So, many would argue it’s only fair that the following episode dedication go to the man who invented pop in the first place. You heard me: the next big name in music to get the “Glee” treatment could be … Michael Jackson.

“That would be pretty cool,” Matthew Morrison (aka Will Schuester) exclaimed, addressing the rumors that an MJ episode is being planned. “He is probably the best and most iconic performer in the history of music,” he added.

Glee will get more ratings if they do some thing for Michael Jackson


7even   August 10th, 2010 3:00 pm ET

I love you Michael.


Maria Copelli   August 10th, 2010 3:04 pm ET

Doubting Thomas! Good to see you here ,and i agree with you 10000% ! I have not watched the show,but am not surprised either.When Dancing With The Stars ' did their Tribute To Michael ,choreographed by ,none other than Mr .Travis Payne,I hoped more would catch on ,and follow! I felt those Dancers on Dancing With The stars did an amazing job ,especially Derrick Hough ,who is fluid ,versatile ,adorable ,and extremely talented !
And Travis .....well we know how I do feel about Travis ,and in my humble ,limited opinion ,there are 2 dancers ,and they are Michael ,and Travis ,oh and me....smile.I love to dance !
I hope this blog will be one where we will All get along ,and have some fun! Love to you ,and yes the ;message' couldnt get any 'clearer ' . Love Maria C.


CuriousCat   August 10th, 2010 3:34 pm ET

Glee's ratings are thru the roof because of it's superb song and dance numbers, I'm sure they will do Michael proud !!

Spread the l.o.v.e .................................................


Judie   August 10th, 2010 3:35 pm ET

We need to keep Michael in the news as things should be moving forward in finding justice.Some of us have not forogotten you Michael you are.always in our hearts.

RIP Michael

I've never watched Glee, so I can't comment. Michael is a difficult act to follow, so I hope they do him justice as always.

"Animals strike not from malice,
but because they want to live.
It is the same with those who criticize,
they desire our blood not our pain.
But still I must achieve,
I must seek truth in all things,
I must endure for the power I was sent forth,
for the world, for the children.
But have mercy, for I've been bleeding a long time now"

Keep the faith!!!!!!

Hi everyone🙂
hmm ... anyone could pls. tell what is this "Glee" thing all about !?!

nice


SuzieQ   August 10th, 2010 6:30 pm ET

"Now...onward to Murray and the 'injustice' of what he did to take the beautiful Michael Jackson from this world!!!"

That is THE QUESTION!

What is Glee?

“That would be pretty cool,” Matthew Morrison (aka Will Schuester) exclaimed, addressing the rumors that an MJ episode is being planned. “He is probably the best and most iconic performer in the history of music,” he added.
We couldn't agree more Matthew so many things most people don't even know yet about Michael should surface there are many acts of kindness that never even made headlines but the fans all know of such stories.
He is all of the above and so much more!


babycarie   August 10th, 2010 6:52 pm ET

DWTS did NOT do Michael justice in their tribute...lets hope Glee does!!

Suzie Q!!
Love and french fries to you!!!!
Gotta run!!!
Hope to see you later!!!!!

Ah, that LOVE!!!!


Lori - Justice for Michael   August 10th, 2010 7:01 pm ET

LOL "Glee" is a television series on Fox. It is about a high school Glee club...so there is lots of singing and dancing! It is very entertaining. Right now reruns from the first season are being shown on Fox on Thursday nights at 8:00pm.

Once again lets keep the peace o this new blog ,I will do my best ! Love Maria C.


MourningMJ   August 10th, 2010 7:36 pm ET

@SUZIEQ- LMAO- You are just too cute! Glee is an American musical show that showcases the talent of "high school" students that still express interest in a Glee Club (a singing club). It is a big hit here in the U.S.- I will personally email you the information so you can get caught up. It is set as a Comedy/Drama, it is not a reality show..

Glee is going to be a spectacular tribute to Michael! The Madonna tribute was amazing...

@SUSAN- I agree MJ will be a tough act to follow indeed! How more appropriate then a group of youngsters to honor Michael with some of the industry's best talent coordinators in the business. I think Michael would have embraced this tribute to him with much delight.
@SUSAN- I did address that other issue in the previous blog. I am speechless to say the least!
@BABYCARIE & LOIS & SIMONSAYS- I also replied to you in the previous blog but will not repost in this new fresh blog.

Gleeks are awesome...

Thrilled to hear this. Lovely accolades to Michael from the Glee cast too. Haven't been following Glee but would definitely look forward to An All-Michael Jackson Episode and watch it with glee, if I can.

It will be a great homage to THE MAN.

I JUST CAN'T STOP LOVING YOU!
L.O.V.E.!


Caitie:)   August 10th, 2010 8:06 pm ET

I watched the Lady Gaga episode. Very excited for this one.

Suzie, Glee is a show about highschool kids in a club called "glee" they dance/sing. its kind of like a musical.😉

I L.O.V.E. YOU MICHAEL.
I WILL BE THERE.

And this is why my mind is 'selectively' open!!! I do not want all that rubbish thrown into my rational unrubbished truth!!!!!!!!!

Glee is an adventure...a great adventure!!! Michael would love this!! I wish he were here to witness it.


Judie   August 10th, 2010 9:30 pm ET

Glee should make it a 2 or 3 episode so that they cover all of his talent! Heck they could make it a mini series just on Michael.
There will never be another Michael Jackson and to cover it in one show is not enough!

Still hoping for Truth and Justice for you Michael... we are still here.


MJs Tink   August 10th, 2010 9:41 pm ET

I will be watching that episode. Hello everyone!

Long Live the King!


SuzieQ   August 10th, 2010 10:01 pm ET

I'm not much of a TV person but this Glee thing sounds exciting. Will check it out..... MMJ, will wait for your email.

Good night!


"Pixie Dust "   August 10th, 2010 10:10 pm ET

Lois48,I agree with your post very much.I am not familiar with Glee either but if this helps to restore Michael's good name.I most certainly am for it..I don't watch alot of tv but I always have it turned on.Earlier this evening on an American channel they were advertising a tribute to Michael,I didn't catch it all,but it sounds like it might be pretty good. There was a website but I missed it.Do you Lois or anyone else know anything about this? If so I would appreciate information on this ,thank you.kindly.(Smiles) to you.


Brian234   August 10th, 2010 10:47 pm ET

Wow A MICHAEL JACKSON SHOW that would be major but im not sure that they can pull that off might be too much for them from the dancing to the singing to the chrography Mj was very specific. He's the best ever afterall He is Listed in the GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS AS THE MOST SUCCESSFUL ENTERTAINER OF ALL TIME. Good luck pulling that off glee.

RIP KING


babycarie   August 10th, 2010 10:53 pm ET

Brian234 August 10th, 2010 10:47 pm ET
Hello Brian!
Agreed!!!
It will be very difficult to do Michael justice...but this show is such fun and if they have fun and not try and 'be' Michael, it should be a great show!!


lois48   August 10th, 2010 11:55 pm ET

@Pixie – I am not sure what the Tribute is, but when my eyes are peeled to the TV screen I will keep one open for any announcements on a MJ tribute. Smiles and hugs to you...have a good evening.

Hello my long lost friend. As you can see there are many that misses you here on the blog, but I assume that either you are enjoying the summer time, or too busy to have time to blog or lastly but lease meant what you said that you will no long post on the blogs, because it upset’s you about how various people post hurtful things here. I can understand that to the fullest. However, you have made many friends in this virtual world that misses very much and it would be nice, if you would make at least one comment letting all know that you are doing well. I feel let down by you my friend; you understand what I’m talking about. With that said I wish you a pleasant summer and I truly wish you the best. This be the very last post to you. . . . . . .

@Angie Pie
Hey girl, Happy Tuesday my friend. Here is a little daily word that you may like to read. Please enjoy all.
I am free to choose how I create my day.
As I awaken each morning, I have a choice to make. How will I approach this God-given day? Will I begin by appreciating the freshness of a new day or by agonizing over my to-do list? When I remember that I am free to choose how I think, I consciously decide to not spend my precious energy in self-defeating ways.
God has blessed me with freedom. I choose today to make conscious choices about my health, my habits and my attitude. As I do, I feel energized. I have a sense of purpose. I feel renewed, creative and ready to do what is mine to do. Whatever situations or circumstances I face today, I know I am never alone. God is with me, "and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom!"
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
Hugs, Love, & Blessings to you......Letta

Suzie Q!!
YES!! Susan and MMJ exposed the unity of one!! And we saw the unity of the other, Thing one and Thing two, etc. on previous bloggy!! Shameful. Unity only works when others join, not when one joins ones self!!! Sad really...and to deny/defend it is even more sad.

I am not a TV person either...but I have seen Glee, and it is fun!! Michael would giggle and love to have himself on Glee!!
Love and lollipops and fireflies to you my Suzie Q!!
We have the truth!!!
RIP Sweet Michael

i think that'll be really cool if a Michael Jackson episode is shown in honor of the King of Pop. But I'm a huge Britney fan and I can't wait for the new season to come soon so i can see the hits being performed on the show and if possible see Britney on the show.


"Pixie Dust "   August 11th, 2010 3:24 pm ET

I guess I should of told you what channel I had on yesterday evening when I caught the little bit of the advertisement of the tribute to Michael I.had the Peachtree channel on.If you find out please let me know,if I find out myself I shall let you know.Thanks again.Have a wonderful day.(smiles) to you.

How are you!,
I just watched videos about Glee😦


Susan62509   August 11th, 2010 4:11 pm ET

Hello Babycarie and SusieQ:

Here's another update regarding Glee & MJ:

Source: Eonline Tue., Aug. 10, 2010 11:08 AM PDT
As for the post-Super Bowl episode of Glee, Murphy tells Seacrest that he's hoping for a Prince, Michael Jackson or Paul McCartney themed episode—though nothing is set yet. (Murphy recently revealed that McCartney had sent him a "mixed tape" for consideration.)

"I don't have any plans right now to do a Michael Jackson episode. So [Adam Shankman's] not directing that, but he is directing a big, juicy spectacle. I don't have the rights to that, and I think it's really hard to clear Michael Jackson music. I have a list of three dream people who I would love to do after the Super Bowl: I would love to do something about Prince. I think Prince would be amazing. I want to do a Beatles episode. I would love to do a Jackson episode, so one of those three we'll do for the Super Bowl. I don't know which one."


Susan62509   August 11th, 2010 4:39 pm ET

SusieQ and Babycarie and MMJ:

If Glee is planning an Michael Jackson, Prince or McCartney themed episode on a post-Super Bowl timeframe, that's a long time away. Super Bowl will be held Feb. 6, 2011. If MJ's Estate doesn't approve, I would enjoy a Prince theme. Prince is unique, yet very private.

I enjoy coming to the LKL blog to read your, Susie's and MMJ's truth and insight into Michael Jackson. Honesty and integrity earns trust and leadership. Imposters and deceit are failures triggered by mental deficiency. So sad to bring so many nice MJ fans into their clutches.


Maura   August 11th, 2010 4:58 pm ET

Thanks for that amazing and good quality Earth Song video. What an effect that song had on the people at the concert. It sure brought back memories for me.


lola   August 11th, 2010 5:17 pm ET

It's about time. What took them so long to do a Michael Jackson episode ????- since NO ONE compares to him. I hope they consider the beauty of the whole man, not just his incredible talent and music.


Jessie from Auckland, NZ   August 11th, 2010 5:29 pm ET

babycarie   August 11th, 2010 7:02 pm ET

Thanks Susan!
Since Michael's Super Bowl half time show was THE BEST of all time it is only fitting that the episode go to THE BEST!!! But as was stated Michael's music is difficult to get clearance for...unless exploiting him, then its easy!!! Sorry, had to say it!!!

Rest in peace sweet Michael.

Notice some Murray supporters back on the blog after a long absence? hum .... Murray must be in the news these days, because some people come to these blog only when Murray needs his defenders .... very interesting ....

Good night sweet Carie!

I watch the SB half time video all the time and I'm in awe,never ever will another performance out -do that one! He was grand to say the least.

I have never watched "Glee" but would definitely tune in if there's an episode paying tribute to Michael.

@ Tay ~ Thank you for including me on Michael's Flight of L.O.V.E on MJ Air. I am so honored! Have a good night!

From the words of Michael Jackson:

" What one wishes is to be touched by truth and to be able to interpret that truth so that one may use what one is feeling and experiencing, be it despair or joy, in a way that will add meaning to one's life and will hopefully touch others as well."

"This is art in its highest form. Those moments of enlightenment are what I continue to live for."

L.O.V.E and Peace to Everyone!

Here is your daily word. Also, for others who enjoys reading this. Called Prays for Others
I know that all things are possible, and I give thanks.
Dear one, I am praying for you today. You may be someone I have known for a long time or someone I just met, but regardless, I know you are divine in nature, a beloved creation of a loving God.
As I think of you, I envision perfection in mind, body and spirit. The presence of God within enables you to make wise choices and to heal in every way. God's abundance is in the very essence of your being. I envision you having everything you need to fulfill your hopes and desires.
I pray for you, and I release any need for a particular outcome. I know that all good things are possible for you and the people you care about, and for this, I give thanks.
We always pray for you, asking that our God will ... fulfill by his power every good resolve and work of faith.–2 Thessalonians 1:11

Susan62509   August 12th, 2010 7:18 am ET

SusieQ and Babycarie:
I just finished reading Katherine's book entitled "Never Can Say Goodbye". It's excellent reading and photo's never seen before of MJ, his brothers and parents.

Katherine talks about the trials during the 90's and how Michael needed his fans at that time. She also writes how his loss is an overwhelming grief she can't put into words and fifty is too young to die. She tells her stories to MJ3 and his fans because MJ would want us to know how much we meant to him. She feels MJ managed to live as joyously as he truly deserved and feels he fulfilled his purpose in life.

OMG, isn't that touching? My heart breaks for her. I highly recommend the book. MJ's Estate did approve the book.

Onward and upward to continue our fight for justice in Michael's death and maintain his legacy that he worked so hard for and shared with the world.

Have a magnificent day beautiful ladies.


babycarie   August 12th, 2010 8:35 am ET

Susan62509 August 11th, 2010 9:38 pm ET
Susan, thank you!
I am humbled...truly!!
I could not imagine not having truth and not living in reality. I remember being in junior high and we all thought that Armageddon was coming at noon one day!! So we staged a walk out of history class because, well, what did we care...the world was going to end! But, noon came and went and the world kept spinning round. That was child's play...as adults delusions are supposed to fade into reality. Sadly this does not happen for all.
Michael Jackson was a human being with flaws and hardships and he made mistakes and he felt pain and he died. My mom feels there is nothing more sacrilegious than disrespecting a death or trying to encourage hoax beliefs. She is the biggest Michael fan I have ever know and she has accepted his death with rational grace. Losing my brother was so painful I worried about her when Michael died. But mom did okay. She saw what was happening to him and somehow knew that Michael would not live to be old. Maybe some people aren't meant to grow old...they are to be forever young. How those surrounding him could not see his frailness speaks volumes.
Anyway, thanks to you again Susan for such kind words. Someone asked me what I want BC to be when she grows up...gee, rather early to think abut!! I thought 'happy'...I want her to be 'happy'. 🙂
I wish Michael could have found happiness.

@BABYCARIE-
Carie, lmao @ 8/11/09 7:46 a.m. I couldn't agree more...

@BABYCARIE/SUSAN/JUDIE/SUZIEQ- I totally agree about the Superbowl performance! Michael's halftime show was the most watched in history. lmao, I don't even remember who was in the Superbowl that year.

@SUSAN- Susan, I agree that Prince would make an amazing Theme as well. Prince is as talented as Michael was, I think we fell in love with Michael more easily because of his selfless humanitarism. Prince is extremely private and rarely grants televised interviews. I still never wrapped my brain aound the entire "$%^&" symbol he changed into but he was clever like Michael in that way and kept people talking about him.
SUSAN- I totally support your thoughts about integrity and leadership. Many times, leaders direct an army of one- themselves. One of the most brillant lines I have ever heard in a movie (Remember the Titans) "Attitude reflects leadership". That speaks volumes for people who hide behind multiple identities. Including those who pose as Michael Jackson and the people who praise this ludacris behavior. The impostor has returned again and is thanking fans for "love and support" Support for what? Technical support?

That was so beautiful...my heart just aches for Katherine. I am still angry with her partnership with porno crud but she is doing the best she can under such stressful and unimaginable circumstances. I love how she put it....'MJ managed to live as joyously as he truly deserved and feels he fulfilled his purpose in life.'
Thank you for sharing this Susan. I am speechless.

I loved Mrs. Katherine's book. I consider it money well spent. Although I never did understand why they chose to use the coupon code "MJLIVES" but I did appreciate the 35% discount it brought. The site offered excellent customer service and fast shipping. It is definitely a treasure.

Carole Dubois   August 12th, 2010 7:12 pm ET

They need to do a Michael Jackson episode. He deserves that! After all he is the King Of Pop and always will be. No one will take his place.


babycarie   August 12th, 2010 7:26 pm ET

In 1993, Michael wrote the introduction to a cookbook for families published by Neiman Marcus, Pigtails and Frog Legs. The book was illustrated by legendary Warner Bros.

'To a child, food is something special. It isn’t just a delicious taste or the vitamins that build a healthy body. Food is love and caring, security and hope — all the things that a food family can provide. Remember when you were little and your mother made a pie for you? When she cut a slice and put it on your plate, she was giving you a bit of herself, in the form of her love. She made your hunger go away, and when you were full and satisfied, everything seemed all right. Because that satisfied feeling was in the pie, you were nourished from a deep level. Food is something we all need physically, but so is love, the deeper nourishment, that turns into who we are.

Think about how necessary it is to nourish a child with a bit of yourself when you use this book. It is full of delicious things. Every recipe has an extra ingredient of caring, because the people who wrote them were thinking of the children. They were specially thinking of those who aren’t able to take nourishment for granted because they are poor, sick or disabled. These are the children who need food to heal. The theme of ‘Heal the World’, which has been close to my heart, is the central theme of this book, also. Here are recipes for the spirit. Please make them with that in mind. Your child is growing spirit that can be knit strong with love. When you break an egg and measure a cup of flour, you are magically mixing the gift of life. The food’s proteins and minerals will turn into bones and muscles, but your feeling as you cook will turn directly into a soul.

It makes me happy to think that the needs of children’s spirits are at last becoming important in this world. Children have no power to end wars directly or to mend age-old differences.

All they can do is be themselves, to shine with gratitude and joy when love is turned their way. Yet isn’t that ultimately the greatest power? In the eyes of a child you become the source of joy, which lifts you into the special category of caregiver and life-provider. You may think that your apple pie has only sugar and spice in it. A child is wiser — with the first bite, he knows that this special dish is the essence of your love.

Enjoy!

— Michael Jackson, 1993'


Maria Copelli   August 12th, 2010 7:38 pm ET

Pixie, So nice to see your positive comments here ! You and so many others continue to shine...on!
I feel comfortable enough to tell you at times,It is very challenging to come here ,and stay positive,amongst the negativity ,I so wished there was a way to make others see ,things perhaps from a different view.
More importantly I do wish there were a way ,to express,how profoundly sad words can make others feel. Because sometimes I feel we forget we are Real People,who wake up ,go to work ,eat ,sleep ,laugh ,cry ,and may have been depressed ,and came here to be amongst some new friends they have made here. It is a beautiful thing to see.I have said it many times ,and I mean it!
Some may feel we are not realists,not fans,not really showing Michael some L.O.V.E.Now that really and truly hurts ,it is the farthest thing from the truth !
I have Loved Michael for most of my entire life ,oh not so much the entertainer ,but the person he is ,at least I feel ,in my obviously limited way . As far as the Entertainer ,he is number one,bar none,sheer perfection ,hard work ,driven ,caring ,sweet man .
You see I come here ,to be amongst others who Love Michael ,and want to see his good name restored ,this is my mission ,and I stay here to be with those who seem to care as much ,if not more!!!
Some may feel we are nutty ,some may feel we have multiple ..identities,some feel we are crazy ,to wonder what really took place June 25th 2009.But no matter what ,I want you and others to know I continue here despite the hurtful words ,because this is exactly what Michael did ,he kept on..'Keeping ..On'. And when tears fall ,I will dry them ,pray for the courage and the needed strength ,to be here with those who truly care so much ,and L.O.V.E. Michael .!!!!!Love /hugs Maria C.

I remember it so well many a summer night we would post till wee hours in the morning. Good times.

@carie,
I hope you and baby care are doing great she will be an MJ fan in no time!

@SuzieQ,
Something always draws me back here I have learned so many facts and myth's about Michael at least when I talk about him I know I have factual proof to back up my words.

Never Can Say Goodbye from Mrs.Katherine...all I can say is the pictures are wonderful. I plan on reading it this weekend,but I couldn't pass up the pictures this morning.

@MMJ and Susan I am sure you agree what a surprise to look at these this morning! (Thank You Lora)


Ozzie   August 12th, 2010 8:43 pm ET

Whoops forgot to mention the topic my head will be on the chopping block now lol.

I have watched glee and my girls love it. They are all great singers and I think it would be great to do a Michael show, I will definately watch that one.

TTFN xxxx


SuzieQ   August 12th, 2010 9:39 pm ET

Susan, sounds very touching! I will be ordering the book shortly. It would be nice to read about Michael from a loving and intimate perspective, and who better than his mother, whom he adored? Thanks for the info Susan!

And to all you classy, smart and well-informed ladies on the blog – you know who you are – can anyone please help me figure out who's paying Murray's defense? I know I've asked the question before, and also tried to do some research on the subject but couldn't find any concrete or credible info.

Gotta go but will look for your reply later ... Good night!


SuzieQ   August 12th, 2010 9:42 pm ET

Beverly - Chicago   August 12th, 2010 10:32 pm ET

@Maria C. 7:38 PM:

Maria, I had to respond to your post because you said it so well. For anyone to dictate who does and who doesn't love Michael or who is and who is not a fan of Michael and cares about his "legacy" is completely ridiculous. Those of us who are always being attacked know very well how much you love Michael and have always cared about him just like you know the same about the rest of us. I have stopped trying to figure them out because it is just beyond reasoning. There is something very wrong with any situation where someone tries to show love for Michael or for fellow bloggers and to be berated for it and made to feel badly about it.

I've said this before and I will say it again although it always seems to fall on deaf ears – no one has the right to dictate how Michael should be appreciated or loved or what the rules or parameters are for someone who truly cares about him. That is just beyond ridiculous.

So, Maria, don't even bother upsetting yourself or worrying about this situation. Just continue showing the wonderful and beautiful spirit you always provide with your posts. You are a positive and radiant light here. We know you love Michael just like we all do and he knows it too, wherever he is.

@ *Michael...L.O.V.E* ~ I feel bad I missed you when you visited the blog last night. Thank you so much for your reply. I speak from my heart when I say I can't tell you what a great feeling it is to know that you "love us all the most"...God Bless You and I will always love you more!

@ "Pixie Dust" ~ You are more than welcome, my friend. Michael's words speak of brilliance mixed with an unselfish, unconditional love and understanding. I am so proud to share his own words because they are such an inspiration and a gift to all of us. Smiles and Love to you!

@ Tatiana ~ You are so sweet. Likewise, it is always pleasurable reading your posts. Love & Blessings to you, my friend!

@ Rhonda (August 12th – 4:14am) ~ Hello my friend. Thank you for sharing the poem about "Friendship"...By the way, I will always "be at your side". Love to you!

Keep smiling and most of all, Keep that Faith! Love to your family as well!

@ Maura (August 12th – 7:06am) ~ Thank you for the website you provided. I can't think of a more wonderful idea than to make August 29th Michael Jackson Day – a global Children's Day. I know this truly would make Michael smile because this was a desire so close to his heart. Like the website states "He cared for our children and it's on us to continue his Legacy"...Thanks for faithfully carrying out Michael's wishes and messages to all of us fans who love and adore him! Love & Hugs!

@ Tay ~ L.O.V.E and Light to you, my friend!

Just saw on another blog – 'Gleemania' Takes Over 'Oprah", that 'Glee' is getting rave reviews. Have quoted below.........

"Music is the language that everyone in the world speaks," he told Winfrey. "It’s universal."

And it’s one of the few shows that holds a bright note throughout its script, said “Glee” co-creator Ryan Murphy.

“I wanted to do something optimistic,” he told Winfrey. "I thought there wasn’t anything on television that’s upbeat and had a happy ending every week. I was as surprised as anyone that it got picked up.”

A blogger said that it was a........"Feel Good Show" – great music, good theme and not about killing or crime or anything depressing. I am glad to see something different and positive on TV for a change."

I would agree. I need a new TV and with all the daily dose of violence, sex and whatnot, I don't think I'll replace it. Will just stick with our little portable one and pick and choose programmes very carefully.

Someone was saying they did a good job on Madonnas' 'Vogue' production, so hopefully for Michael as well.

To be a real friend;

And love deep and true
To reach and to comfort
The way that you do.
Because I can see
That your kind of friendship
Is priceless to me.

Hey friend, here is my daily word for the day, it is a little different – it is call Recovery....But when I read it for myslef it gave me a different reason I guess because it talk's about health. But, I started thinking Recovery came mean many others things in life that ones goes through so I decided to share with you and others. Hope you all enjoy it
Recovery
The road to recovery leads to perfect health and well-being.
Recovery is a natural part of the healing process. If I am recuperating from an illness or surgery or from a long-term condition, I can make a significant difference in my own recovery by including prayer in my healing regimen.

As I or someone dear to me moves down the road to recovery, I pray with life-affirming conviction that the healing activity of God is at work. I join with friends, family or others in my spiritual community to affirm that total healing is unfolding. The support and solidarity I receive comfort me as the healing process continues.

Recovery leads to renewal of my body, mind and spirit. As I make significant progress each day, I appreciate every phase of this journey and the insights gained along the way.

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me.–Luke 4:18

Email MMJ and she will tell you how you can read KJ's book at an unbelieveable discount. I have no idea who is paying CM's attorney fees, his vacations or his past creditors. See post 8-12-10, 2:58 p.m. for 302 explanation.

I loved the intro by MJ for the cookbook. I've never seen/read that before. Thank you for sharing with all of us. Very uplifting and inspiring.

MMJ:
The 3-0-1 had me ROTFLMAO. I love to laugh. Tnx.

Judie:
So nice to see you on LKL. Enjoy your day.


babycarie   August 13th, 2010 7:58 am ET

Suzie Q!!!
I have no idea what MMJ and Susan mean by '3-0-1'!! I was just adding my version to the mix!!! 🙂
As for who is paying for Murray's defense...lawyers are fame grubbers so the defense council might be representing Murray pro bono to get the notoriety...disgusting whoever is helping that snake.
Katherine said she does believe that 'they' wanted Michael dead...so who 'they' are is the question...one that unless Murray spills the 'troot' will probably never be found out. Four years max...can you imagine?? And probably only serve maybe two 'if' convicted...seriously???!!! When it's all over, Murray will surely gain fame by telling 'his' version of what happened on June 25, 2009. I hope the wrongful death suit holds so he can't profit from killing Michael. Ugh...makes me feel ill.

@ All

Hope you all have a wonderful day

I send you this reflection that I find so true

"Charity is not just the presence in the Church, reading the chapters, verses from the Bible, she takes up residence in the Soul and our attitudes."

God bless us

This is another daily word of the day. I thought would be nice to share since the summer vacations is almost over, and some like me will be taking a four day vaction soon in Vegas. Enjoy everyone and have a bless Friday afternoon and a beautiful Weekend.

Vacation
I take time to relax and restore my mind and body.
Spiritual teachers know the importance of taking time apart. Whether they spend time in a quiet place of beauty or embark upon a new adventure, time away from routine activities is a source of renewal.

My schedule may be filled with activities for work, family, church and friends. But as important as my work and relationships are, it is also vital that I spend time away from my routine. As I allow myself time for rest and renewal, I open my awareness to the radiance of the Christ of my being and feel it expanding. Whether I am in the silence or immersed in the exhilaration of new activities, the energy of the Christ light infuses my body with vitality and my mind with peace. After a time apart, I am rested and restored.

After saying farewell to them, he went up on the mountain to pray.–Mark 6:46
Love, Hugs, & Blessings to All.....Letta
Unity
United We Stand
Divided we Fall
Think about it all.


Letta(IbeLieve)   August 13th, 2010 11:42 am ET

The Rose   August 13th, 2010 4:28 pm ET

Michael Jackson was a singer, writer, choreographer, designer, artist, philanthropist, and one of the most beloved entertainers of all time and deserves all the accolades that eluded him during the last part of his life. The outpouring of grief and love for him is astounding and long overdue, we have all been affected by his originality, creativity and amazing body of work. Glee, one of the best shows on TV today definitely should honour Michael’s extraordinary life, although there is no way they could possibly do that in a one hour episode, (perhaps they could devote an entire season to him?).

Think of him as living in the hearts of those he touched, for nothing loved is ever lost and he was loved so very much.

“What the heart has once known, it shall not forget”.

The thing I've learned through all this is that God writes the story. Take time to live………..

Since 69’


MaryRM   August 13th, 2010 4:50 pm ET

sorry, typos:

that really isn't very funny at all, it just shows you how screwed up the legal system is.


Maria Copelli   August 13th, 2010 5:13 pm ET

Jacqueline ! Bravo ,thank you for sharing that heart wrenching video,truly wonderful and perfectly done! wow....She is adorable ,reminds me of Michael and Janet all in one! She will do her Family and the Jackson Family proud ! I am so happy I took another break ,here .Thank you so much Jacqueline ,hope you will visit with us here again! Love and Hugs Maria C.

Letta! Have a lot of fun on your stay in Vegas ,I Loved it there a yr ago ,and will return ! Please as Michale sang ...'Enjoy Yourself For Me !'....Love to you Letta Maria C.

Hey SuzieQ and Babycarie:

The weekend begins and I hope you both have a great one !! Have lot's of fun with laughter. Here's some info:

Aug 13, 2010 – Los Angeles, CA – Michael Bearden, the Music Director and close friend of the late King of Pop Michael Jackson scored the movie "This Is It" has composed and produced a new profound song titled "One Last Goodbye," a musical tribute in honor of Michael Jackson's birthday on August 29th, which will be available on iTunes.

"One Last Goodbye" will be unveiled to the 'King of Pop" fans through Michael Bearden's facebook fan page. In addition, Michael Bearden will perform a live version of the song on UStream and engage fans by answering questions about his work with the late pop icon. "After Michael passed, I started receiving countless emails on my personal facebook page from Michael Jackson fans who wanted to learn about my untold experiences working so closely with the "King of Pop." Ultimately I think fans really just wanted to connect with anyone who was directly linked to Michael Jackson. From this, I was inspired to launch and design my fan page as a place or refuge for fans to continue to talk and fellowship with each other keeping the spirit of Michael Jackson alive" said Michael Bearden.

In regards to composing a tribute song honoring the birthday of Michael Jackson "I wanted to write something special to commemorate Michael's memory since his passing and recently created the most perfect song titled "One Last Goodbye." It is a genuine expression that best represents how I feel about my friend and colleague. The song pulls at your heart strings and immediately makes you feel loss and love at the same time. I believe it upholds the strong characteristics of MJ but also has elements that represent some of the daunting times he had to experience.

@Jessie from Auckland, NZ

Thank u I hope i am right

Hope so too. That article probably could have helped me with something that I have been puzzling over and it could be of some signifance, I wonder.

I missed the World Cup Soccer and it was great to catch up with the video of the theme song 'Stand As One' which included in the lyrics at the end...........a tribute to MJ. The theme of the video was Michael Jackson written all over it. I really enjoyed the song btw.

Thank you and good day.


Lori - Justice for Michael   August 13th, 2010 11:41 pm ET

I ws thinking...that around this time last summer, we were all trying to figure out who The Informer was and why he/she had chosen the LKL to post on....Those were some interesting discussions. The bloggy always blew up when The Informer visited. And then I think... have we really learned any thing more since then? I am hopeful there will be some answers to the questions once the preliminary hearing in the Conrad Murray case is in court later this month.....

Does anyone remember all the theories as to the identity of The Informer?

I don't wanna see you ever sad
And everything that I've got you can have
When it's all too much
You need some human touch
To see that it's really not so bad

Did you call on every saint you know
But still you feel like you're on your own
Can you see through your tears
I will always be here
And you're not out there all alone

Hold On,'till you feel a little stronger
Hold On to me
Hold On, everything's gonna be alright
Just Hold On to me tonight

Anything that hurts you,hurts me too
I'm not gonna let your world turn blue
Will you take my hand
And feel how close I am
There ain't nothing I won't do for you

I know the world
Can drive you to your knees
But when you need to cry, baby
Cry to me

UNITY

It does not take much strength to do things, but it requires great strength to decide on what to do.
– Elbert Hubbard

Life without love is like a tree without blossom and fruit.
– Kahlil Gibran

We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.

There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle The other is as though everything is a miracle.

Act happy, feel happy, be happy, without a reason in the world. Then you can love, and do what you will.
– Dan Millman

When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.
– Helen Keller

Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow. Don't walk behind me, I may not lead.Just walk beside me and be my friend.

Without faith a man can do nothing; with it all things are possible.
-Sir Williiam Osler

When the heart weeps for what is lost, the spirit laughs for
what it has found. – Sufi Aphorism

The great lesson is that the sacred is in the ordinary, that it is to
be found in one's daily life, in one's neighbors, friends, and
family, in one's backyard. – Abraham Maslow

Those who have faith need no explanation, for those who
have no faith, no explanation is possible.

If you have a song of faith in your heart, it will be heard by
the look on your face.

@The Rose What you wrote about Michael might be true, but all those are just secondary and if you want just consequences of what Michael actually was, namely: A VISIONARY.

Now on the sad side, what Einstein once said, seems to apply to our sweet Michael so well:

“Why is it that nobody understands me, yet everybody likes me?"

I felt a cleavage in my mind
As if my brain had split;

But could not make them fit.
The thought behind I strove to join
Unto the thought before,
But sequence ravelled out of reach
Like balls upon a floor.

@Letta:

Hi Letta! I hope your "process" went ok today. So, you are going to Las Vegas? I hope you have a fabulous time while you are there. I know you will! You're lucky to be able to go. I was supposed to go last month in July to visit a friend who is living there now but they changed my 4 x 10 workweek at work to a 5 x 8 workweek and I couldn't get enough days off in a row right now. I'll just have to go later.

Have a great weekend and thank you for posting all the great quotes. I really enjoy reading them. Take care Letta – you are a such a bright and comforting presence here.

@Lori – Justice For Michael:

That's weird that The Informer never came back at all. I heard someone say once that they thought The Informer was LaToya, but who knows?
I wish they would come back sometime!.which reminds me.....

@This is it!:

This is it! Where are you? We miss you. You've been gone for some time now and we want you to come back. We miss your beautiful poems! I hope you're having a nice weekend!

@babycarie 12August 7:26 PM:

Carie:

Thank you for posting that Introduction that Michael wrote for the 1993 Neiman Marcus cookbook. That was nice of you to share that with us as it was extremely interesting to read. I love to read anything that Michael has said or written because he is (was for you) so intelligent with such a fascinating mind. So many wonderful qualities in one man – handsome, caring, compassionate, talented and about as smart as they come.

How is babycarie doing? I hope you are all having a nice weekend.

Letta(IbeLieve)   August 14th, 2010 5:20 pm ET

Here is another Daily word I hope all enjoys it.
It is ccall "Joy"
I carry a song of joy in my heart.
Whether I consider myself to be a good singer or not, I carry a song of joy in my heart today. The tune and lyrics may be well-known or made up as I go along. My song may burst forth audibly or play in my own mind. With joy as my companion, there is lightness to my step, a twinkle in my eye and a smile on my face.

My song is inspired by life all around me: a sunflower's glory, a wheat field's bounty, a child's giggle or a puppy's wiggle. It wells up from within me as gratitude for what God has made, including my own self. I have been given a spirit of joy that carries me through whatever challenges I face. I sing a song of joy today as Spirit sings through me.

@Lori-JusticeforMichael. Could you please tell me on which website you ordered Katherine's book with 35% discount? On Amazon.com you pay the full price.

Thanks and hugs.


Beverly - Chicago   August 14th, 2010 6:17 pm ET

I wanted to add something on to what I was saying in my post to Carie about Michael and it is simply that I also consider Michael to be a genius. It takes alot to impress me and I am most definitely impressed.


kathy 40   August 14th, 2010 6:19 pm ET

@All
Do you guys know anything about the TRIBUTE Concert in London on Mj's upcoming birthday. Wasn't JERMAINE planning this? What happened ?


Lori - Justice for Michael   August 14th, 2010 8:42 pm ET

@Kathy 40 the name of the website is jackson secret vault. Google it since the mods dont usually let the links stay up. The 35% coupon code was good during the first week of sales. I think they are running another promotion now.

IDK about a London Tribute for this August. I thought everything that Jermaine was trying to plan were canceled. With the preliminary hearing docketed to begin August 23 and could last for a couple of weeks (that is if not postponed) I would expect the Jacksons' to stay close to LA at that time, JMOHO.

@Real Talk....sounds interesting. It's been awhile since I have perused the archives. I guess there were some skirmishes off and on. And there were a few that I would call "the common enemies". I wish so many of us that posted back then would return and post again. And I really hope that I didn't hurt anyone's feelings too badly over the course of time....but I think everyone who posts here have strong emotions and opinions...and sometimes things do get heated.

Talking about archives, I wish all the poems and rhymes and quotes could be turned into something for posterity after the Michael Jackson Blogs end, if they do.

Is this wishful thinking on my part and far-fetched, I wonder. It shouldn't be locked away in an archive, some of it is just too beautiful for words. Just thinking btw.

Hi Lori:
I remember last summer and the good old days so very well. I checked the archives a few weeks ago and discovered that 40% to 50% of each topic's comments have been deleted. You can't even follow a conversation if you go back to read them. Remember how we would post more than 1,000 comments on MJ's topics and one time we reached 1800 comments? Now some of those have been reduced to the low to mid 100's. The Informer brought alot of excitement and information to us back in the day. lol

@ Lori JFM

I am one of the previous bloggers with you back ago. I agree – the LKL bloggy was quite engaging. Tthe Murray case and the death conspiracy thoeries and evidence seem to get muddier. After watching the inerview with Mrs. Jackson – I have an observation: I think her partnership with Mark S. on the MJ book (which I will get based on your review) and the way she described her feelings for Debbie Rowe.......I think she might name Debbie as the MJ3 guardian in her will. Don't know how much the estate has to say about that but she sure showed fondness for DR and I think her religious convictions are that children should be with their mothers. What do you think?

I was thinking about the blog and what is going to happen to the MJ blogs in November when Larry leaves. Hopefully, whoever is taking over Larry's spot will just keep the blogs under their name. It would be said if that is the end of the blogs. The MJ blogs are so popular that it would be hard to believe that they would just eliminate them. Hopefully, they will stay on so we can keep posting until we find out for sure what happened to Michael and what will be the outcome for Dr. Murray. Which means we may be here for the rest of our lives! Ha ha! I hope it doesn't take that long!

Here is a huge warm hug ,for you ! And I really hope you will put on your beautiful 'rhino skin' and say hello to us. smile....Love Maria C.


Lori - Justice for Michael   August 15th, 2010 1:04 pm ET

@Diane – MN -Hello good to blog with you!

Well, as you know, guardianship of minor children cannot be "transferred" under the terms of a will. Children are people not possessions and therefore care, control and custody of them is not inherited. Mrs. Jackson can certainly memorialize her "wishes" regarding that by indicating her preferences in her estate planning documents. Custody of minor children would therefore have to be decided by the courts with a custody and/or guardianship proceeding. California law favors biological parents. However, a biological parent could be overlooked depending on a number of factors such as, prior relationship with the child, or factors such as a criminal history, etc. A psychological parent that has a strong relationship with the child could make a claim. Ms. Rowe, would therefore have a potential claim for Prince and Paris as their biological parent. Blanket's custody could be more tricky. I would assume the California courts would have an interest in keeping all siblings together as a unit. So it is possible that all 3 of the children could come under Ms. Rowe's care if the court so decided. Of course, this scenario assumes that Ms. Rowe would want custody/guardianship of the MJ3. I do not think that "the Estate" would have standing to voice an opinion as to guardianship of the MJ3, although the court-appointed GAL for the children may have some insight to offer the court, should custody/guardianship of the MJ3 become at issue.

I think that it is very good for the MJ3 that everyone is trying to get along with each other and encouraging healthy relationships with the adults in the lives of the MJ3. I am sure that Mrs. Jackson will continue to care for the MJ3 to the best of her ability. My hope is that Mrs. Katherine lives a long and healthy life and that guardianship of the MJ3 will not become an issue for the courts again.

Hello Susan...yes, I remember how active the blogs were last summer. Most of them had a 1000+ posts, especially the ones when The Informer was posting on. We used to have multiple blog topics per day back then. Yes lots and lots of activity, lots of different viewpoints. Lots of shared information. It was an interesting time. Sad, but interesting. Now with Murray going before the court for the preliminary hearing, maybe we will finally get some answers. I hope that the PH goes as docketed for 23 August and that there will not be any set overs. We have all been waiting a long time for this.

I wonder if someday, Larry will write a book, and if the posts on the MJ topics will be featured....

Hmmm, it does seem like there are tons of missing blogs from the archives, not just posts, but whole days of topics. Kinda hard to follow anything that way. I just looked at a few from last August....there are so many bloggers that I miss who no longer post anymore. 😦 I wish that the archives had been preserved and were more easily accessible. I think it would be interesting to follow the timeline.

Thank you Babycarie for providing MJ's introduction to a cookbook – very inspiring. I had no idea that Michael ever was asked to do this.

Re Glee, on one hand I hope they do a Michael show because it would be insulting to ignore the King of Music. On the other hand, I really don't like when others sing his music. The only exception that I can think of off hand is Mariah's version of I'll Be There.

It is great seeing so many familiar bloggers from many months ago!

Thanks for the custody info. Perhaps if Mrs. Jackson cannot "will" them she is sertting it up so Debbie Rowe will be the ideal candidate for custody however – iIf Katherine lives ten or more years (age 90) that would put Blanket at 18 or so and the point will be moot. I hope that will be the case. Still so sad. Doesn't seem like a year has gone by.

Your 12:03 post is awesome. If we only ask ourselves those points our lives would be much better. However we are human and sometimes we don't ask ourselves that and we get caught up on the emotional side. I just want to say that I enjoy your posts. It is a blessing to have you on this blog.

@ Letta –
I hope you enjoy your trip to Vegas. I wish I could join but unfortunately due to my financial situation I am unable to. However, this for sure I would love to go see the Cirque de Soleil. By then I should have some money saved. Today I got one container now almost empty and next Sunday is a garage sale. So with that, I should have enough to save up. I'll talk to you later.

I feel it is fine to disagree , fine to share thoughts that is part of the blog 'experience' It is when ,we choose to belittle ,call names ,accuse ,that is what is not nice here !
We really can say that way of being ,is quite contrary to everything Michael stood for ,and was about! He was called things ,no person should be called ! He was lied on ,etc ,and dont we hate that? So why on earth would we repeat ,such horrendous ways ..right here ? It is wrong and .....'un Loving'

I just had to share this with all of you, Hubby and I just got back from a free concert at the boardwalk (on the beach) at put on at Fort Walton Beach FL. Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Lynyrd Skynyrd played. Everyone was there from the very young to the very old and where we were at as well as all over the beach as far as the eye could see. People who were complete strangers were hugging each other, laughing, visiting and singing along with the music. Which just goes to show that people can still show love to each other and strangers to each other. The area Hubby and I were at we had people taking their picture with us and we didn't know them. It wasn't just having the picture took, we all had our arms around each other as if we have been friends forever. Don't believe it when people say that there is no love in this world, because there is, you just have to be willing to reach out to your fellow human beings. There is suppose to be another free concert on Aug 22nd and we can't wait to go ( don't know who is playing yet). Love to all.


Lori - Justice for Michael   August 15th, 2010 11:28 pm ET

At least we are not alone....there are fights among MJ fans all over the net. On Facebook, on Twitter, here....I don't really understand it. Aren't we all fans?

@Maria C. Thank you. 🙂 I am trying to be less argumentative. I know I have been very opinionated at times and it could have been hurtful to others.

I think, JMOHO, as always, that everyone who blogs here regardless of if they have been here since last June or started later are trying to process their grief. Everyone takes a different path through that process. Over the course of time, we change, we grow, we process. Maybe our posts change completely. It's the way the process works, I think. I was so numb at first, then so sad. And I remember how angry I was after the manner of death was released. I still struggle for acceptance because it was all just so senseless.

I also think that many bloggers quit blogging, not over the believer vs. RIP rift, but over the contstant bickering and inability to even have a discussion. I do miss them and the great discussions. Do you remember how we all blogged all night long on Michael's birthday and on the day of the entombment? I do. We needed each other then and we were here for each other. The LKL was the place to be. We had each other. We even had The Informer for awhile to change things up.

I think that there was an original The Informer and that there were also several The Informer impersonators. Of course it is the original The Informer that we are interested in.....

I do hope that we do not totally loose the blogs when Larry retires....I think at some point they could be turned into the basis of an interesting book.

LOL and I do remember what the bloggy was like! Almost everything posted immediately. It was like the wild, wild west here for a good long while! About the only thing that disapered were links and videos. The posts were so fast and furious it was almost like a chat roll.

Anyway even though there have been issues on the bloggy, I wouldn't trade the experience for anything. It was here when I needed it and for that I am grateful and I am grateful to all who blog here and to LKL for providing the forum.

@ Rhonda (August 15th – 7:33pm) ~ Thank you, my friend, for the beautiful words. I'll keep that in mind...With Much Love!

@ Angel Pie ~ (August 15th – 8:25pm) ~ Thank you for your kind words, as always. What you wrote is so true about the fact that we are only human and it is in our nature sometimes to allow emotions to direct and guide us. If each one of us could be more aware of our everyday actions, the world would be a better place. Practice empathy and compassion. Sometimes it may seem like it is not well-received and that is only because the recipient cannot recognize it in their own lives because they were never shown it...But what they will remember is how it makes them feel inside. And therefore a seed is planted. Never give up hope for tomorrow, it can be done, and we have the power within ourselves to make it happen. Many Blessings and Love to you, my friend!

"But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come to me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven." ~ Matthew 19:14

"Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all." ~ Luke 18:17

With a Child's Heart ~ Michael Jackson

"With a child’s heart
Go face the worries of the day
With a child’s heart
Turn each problem into play
No need to worry
No need to fear
Just being alive
Makes it all so very clear

With a child’s heart
Nothing can ever get you down
With a child’s heart
You’ve got no reason to frown
(Love)
Love is as welcome
As a sunny, sunny day
No grown up thoughts
To lead our hearts astray

Take life easy
So easy
Nice and easy
Like a child
So gay and so carefree
Yeah

The whole world smiles with you
As you go your merry way
Oh, with a child’s heart..."

Be Child-Like not Child-ish. Think about a child with their innocent and pure hearts...They always speak the truth. As adults always try and remember the playfulness of life deep within our hearts. If we could regain these qualities, our eyes would see things more clearly. Just a thought. Love to all!

Pixie Dust- Thank you. We did have a blast. After the concert was over they played music from a local radio station and wouldn't you know the second song they played was ABC by the Jackson 5 and the people around us started singing it and dancing to it. So Michael if you are reading this please know the people down here where I am do love you and remember you.

Lori-Justice for Michael-- If I remember correctly it seems like it was said the original Informer was someone close to Michael. There was some that thought it was one of his sisters.

Love to all.

Hello my dear, 12:07 pm…Good luck on holding out for your/our special friend.(LOL). Thank you for your comment about my up coming trip, I am very excited myself also. Looking forward to celebrating and having a beautiful but lovely time. Smiling. Well, I can understand also that by the end of the day one becomes tired, I know the feeling. College starts again tomorrow, but I’m lucky because the classes that I am taking does not start till Sept 27th, which gives me more time to enjoy what every comes to my mind, but what I was trying to say is that school and my treatment ripes me out at times and all I want to do is take a bathe and hot the bed sometimes. LOL So, maybe if the time permits, one lucky evening you will come by, but until them communicating with you on the blog is just as nice….I’m Keeping the Faith…Love, Hugs, & Blessings to you and your family….Letta

Hi all,
Since we all are MJ fans don't you think that on MJs birthday someone from the Jackson family should join this blog and talk to his fans. I think it will show the fans the family's involvement.
Just an idea. We could ask questions and talk about the life of the king of pop.
So if Larry could arrange that it would be nice.

Oh, I'm glad you got the link. Just want to make sure as many people as possible could see the petition. MJJJustice Project is doing an awesome job.😎 Thank you for posting the lyrics to "With a Child's Heart." The lyrics are amazing with such a great message (as plenty of Michael's songs) ! Love hugs and blessings

Lori - Justice for Michael   August 16th, 2010 3:06 am ET

I am working on attracting positive energy. To do so, I believe one first has to be positive. So I am trying that. I think it feels better than staying emeshed in the negative...although it is pretty hard to find any positives about what happened on 25 June 2009.

Yes, there were many theories as to the identity of the original The Informer back in the day. They ran the gamut from one of MJ's sisters...to Kenny Ortega or Frank DiLeo. I do seem to recall the original The Informer saying he/she "had danced with Michael many times".... It has been a very, very long time since there have been any The Informer posts on the bloggy. Almost a year I think since the last ones....

I think the blogger I would most like to see return here is Gene!

Good Morning Everyone and yes I am still awake. LOL
@Angie Pies
Good Morning ...you said last night that you was tired so here is something that may make you feel better, also anyone else who enjoys reading my daily words.
It called Comfort
In the quiet, I know great comfort.
As I close my eyes to pray or meditate, everything becomes quiet. The simple act of closing my eyes opens my heart to God. And as my heart opens, I am filled with deep love, compassion and comfort. I need never look for someone or something to comfort me. I need only to remember my oneness with God and the ever-present nature of God's love.
I let go of all worries, knowing that the very best answer will be shown to me. I let go of all insecurity and doubt. As I feel God's love, I know that all is well. I am safe, and I am fully protected. Each day I take time to become quiet. In the silence, I feel the comfort of a love that endures.
Then they were glad because they had quiet, and he brought them to their desired haven.–Psalm 107:30

Good Morning Everyone – hope everyone have a nice day today.

@ Real Talk –
Your name sure fits. You pull no punches and state exactly how it is. Now whether the person whom you refer to wishes to lislten or not is their problem. I guess sometimes people just can't handle being told the truth.

@ Letta –
Hope you have a good day today and yes lets make plans for the Cirque De Soleil. That would be awesome if we all met and have fun.

@ Love Conquers All –
You did it again my friend. Your post @ 12:23 was just awesome. When I see children I am reminded of those verses from the bible. I love Michael's Child Heart. Thank you for posting. Your post helped me begin my day with a smile. How true that children is our future but they are also one's legacy. How the children turn out as adults reflect on the very parents who reared them. Also if only adults can have the Heart of a child. It seems many adults have forgotten what it was to be a child – Freespirited. Thank you again my friend, hope to see you post again. Take Care.

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga wants to make herself a movie star – she's working on a Moonwalker inspired music video that will be as long as a feature film and will be shown in theaters.

"Gaga is a real creative genius and is thinking about new possibilities all the time. She's very excited about a movie, but she wants to do it right. She wants to work with the best people in the business," a source said.

"Gaga wants to emulate what Michael Jackson did during the '80s. You can already see that with her music videos. Every one of them is a mini event. So it's only logical she moves that on to the big screen. Gaga likes to be in control. She is behind everything on her own movie. It could take a long time," the source added.

Rumor has it that Lady Gaga has approached Bryan Singer to direct some, if not all of the movie.

Real Talk- You remind me of myself, point blank, to the point and let the chips fall where they may. The thing is people don't like hearing the truth especially when it is about them or concerns them. Right now we need to put the past in the past, which is what Michael wants us to do. Don't do it for me or for you, but for Michael. Peace and Unity is what we need on the blogs now.

Rebeka Davis- Thank you my friend. I hope you had a wonderful weekend.

Lori ,I am sure glad you are here with us! It will be very interesting how this next court case pans out. I wonder what the strategies will be ? I do think it is odd that The Paps dont follow Doctor Murray around day and nite! he must be very well guarded ,and I wonder how he can really afford all the security ,not to mention the legal team .
I could elaborate more but I will stop there ! We must keep our eyes and ears opened !
I saw some nice footage of Marlons acceptance of the award for Michale in Saratoga N.Y. the Museum Of Dance Hall Of Fame ' Marlons speech, really touched on the ideals close to Michaels heart ,and there were twin Brothers who danced to Thriller ,they did a great job! Maybe someone can post it here .
Take care Lori ,Love Maria C.


Marguerite   August 16th, 2010 4:58 pm ET

Maria C- Thank you!!! I am still unpacking boxes, it seems like every box I unpack three more pop up in it's place.rofl But I love the unpacking because it is almost like Christmas all over again. As in I don't have any idea what is all wrapped up in paper (what it is) until I get it unwrapped.lmao To Hubby and I coming back to Florida wasn't just a move it was returning home. Even though we lived in Tampa Bay before and live in a different part of the state now, it is still home to us. When we moved to Florida in 2001 I had a hard time getting my Hubby to move here, but once we got moved to Florida in 2001 Hubby fell for Florida hook, line and sinker.rofl He was born and raised in Texas and once a Texan always a Texan,. S,o when he told me Florida was home and not Texas I couldn't believe what I was hearing from him.

Maria, here is the thing about people, they are the way they are, they don't change. Oh they say they will and have changed but sooner or later they are right back to behaving, talking the way the were before. The ones I feel for are the ones that believe the person/people have changed. But we can't tell them or warn them about it, because if we do they will hate us for speaking the truth. You see the truth hurts and people always want to believe everyone is like they are, good, honest, truthful, loving, What it comes down to is you have to accept them for who they are, the way they are and not the way you want them to be or believe them to be. I learned this lesson a long time ago when I was 18 when I was married to my first Hubby that abused me. He would always say he would change and for a short time he would act like he had, but then his true nature would always show through. I have seen this too many times in my life and learned people are the way they are.

Lori-Justice for Michael- Where Real Talk is concerned I have a feeling he/she is either someone fed up the bashing/attacking/hate. A part of me also wonders if it isn't maybe Michael saying enough is enough. As someone said last winter here on the blogs, "No more Mr. Nice Guy". As I have said many a time I am a people watcher, so I am just sitting back, reading, watching and observing. This could very well be one of those BAM moments that Michael said in "This Is It". I am Alice watching everything unfold and laughing as I do so. Michael is the Man with The Plan. I said this way back last fall and I still say it.

Love to all.


The Rose   August 16th, 2010 5:27 pm ET

Congratulations Michael Jackson, inducted into the National Museum of Dance and Hall of Fame.

As usual, he is the first ever figure from the world of Rock and Roll to be inducted. Another accolade long overdue and unfortunately, posthumous.

His spirit lives with us,
Forever in our hearts.
Say not in grief “He is no more”,
But live in thankfulness that he was.

Since 69'

Rebeka Davis - Recife - Brasil   August 16th, 2010 7:28 pm ET

I'm very happy today, my day was spent listening to music of the Jackson 5, I had never bought a CD of Jackson5 ... Michael's voice is very beautiful ... There is no equal voice ... Michael is single ... I love all stages of the life of Michael ... When my mother got into the car I put Ben to listen to it ... Ben is the music that my mother prefers ... I like all music from Michael, I can not pick just one ... In fact I love Michael and all he does ... He is perfect

God bless Michael and your family always

Sorry Rebeka , like it your way saves alot of time. smiles
I may be mistaken, but this pass weekend was a blessings to all who blogs here. It was very calm and peaceful. Everyone, posting positive comments and not basdhing, trashing or fighting here. Now, the reason I say this is because come Monday morning here we go again, people not being respectful or nice to others. This is truly a shame that only on weekend we can what breathe in pleasnt posts from all of us, and now here come all that was left out this pass weeekend. SMH, this really tell everyone where all the unpleasantness is coming from.

"Consciousness expresses itself through creation. This world we live in is the dance of the creator. Dancers come and go in the twinkling of an eye but the dance lives on. On many an occasion when I'm dancing, I've felt touched by something sacred. In those moments, I've felt my spirit soar and become one with everything that exists. I become the stars and the moon. I become the lover and the beloved. I become the victor and the vanquished. I become the master and the slave. I become the singer and the song. I become the knower and the known. I keep on dancing and then, it is the eternal dance of creation. The creator and creation merge into one wholeness of joy."

"I keep on dancing and dancing.......................and dancing, until there is only .................the dance."

CONGRATULATIONS to Michael on his induction into the NATIONAL DANCE HALL OF FAME last evening. He's made us all proud!
God Bless him...He deserves this and so much more!

@Diane OMG where have you been? Nice to see you again.

I could not imagine Michael not being inducted into the National Dance Hall Of Fame. He gave us more then any other performer! His moves were pure magic and he invented most of them. I was in a TV/Video store and a Michael DVD was playing and people stopped just to look at Michael doing his thing and they stood there and looked amazed at what they were watching. All ages,gender, and color,this tells me so much of what an impact he had and still has on so many people.
Thank you Michael for all that you gave. RIP a year later and not many answers.


Marguerite   August 16th, 2010 9:33 pm ET

Maria C- From Feb of 2001 to July 2001 we lived 35 miles North of San Antonio and we went to Dallas, San Antonio, Houston and Corpus Christi to mention the major cities we went to at that time.

Where people are concerned, they are the way they are. The world is made up of all kinds and types are people. It comes down to acceptance and what you are willing to put up with.

You are very welcome!!! Michael is a very special man and human being. He accepted people for who they were and how they were, he wasn't judgmental. He did so much and yet asked for so little. I can go on and on.lol

Timeless- If you want to know what a person (any person) is like put them in a room with either a small child or an animal. Small children and animals see people the way they really are. If the small child or animal does not like the person they are in the room with, take notice of it. Because they either love you or hate you and they don't beat around the bush about it either. They see the persons true character.

Love to all.

Michael did like Lady Gaga,talk was he wanted her to perform at the

@ ibelieve25 ~ I delivered your hug to my mom. She smiled and said to say, “Thank you.” I so appreciate your kindheartedness. This Thursday, the 19th, is actually her birthday so I told her to consider this an early birthday hug! Thanks so much, my friend!

@ Letta ~ Thanks my friend. You’re right…I am going to need all the luck I can get on the endless waiting for my/our special friend…LOL! I am so glad you enjoyed my posting of Michael’s “With a Child’s Heart” lyrics. His songs always speak truth. Love & Many Blessings to you and your family and never let go of that Faith, my dear!

@ “Pixie Dust” – You’re so welcome, my friend. Big SMILES and Hugs sent your way!

@ Marguerite – Hi there, my friend in Florida! I neglected to mention that my mom’s brother actually lives on the East Coast of Florida in a place called Port Saint Lucie. He has been there for over 20 years and will not leave…That’s how much he loves it! Anyhow, I loved your story about you and your hubby witnessing people coming together. That is quite a celebration in itself! It would be nice to see more and more of this nice interaction! Love to you!

@ Real Talk ~ All I can say is “WOW”…Interesting posts!

“All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them” – Galileo Galilei

@ Maura
@ Tatiana ~ You’re welcome my friends…Love & God Bless!

@ Rebeka ~ Hope you had a lovely weekend. So nice to read you. L.O.V.E, Hugs and Smiles to you, my friend from Brazil!

@ Angel Pie ~ Thank you so much for your most thoughtful words. It pleases my heart to know that I made you smile to start your day. Loved your response about how “children are not only our future, but one’s legacy.”

It is sad but so true that most adults have seemed to have forgotten their childhood and that there inner child is still within their hearts waiting to be awakened. Hope to see you here again soon…Take Care.

@ Maria C. ~ I thought I saw that glow of light shining and of course, I knew it was YOU! I am always so touched by your comments as well as countless others on this blog. Believe me, mine do not even compare, but thank you so much for another one of your kind comments…You touched my heart once again, my dear!

@ simonsayslove ~ Loved your poem…Great words!

Sorry for the long post, once again.
Love & Peace to all!

Hello Marguerite...Interesting comment and yes you are correct.
Children and animals both tend to be quite in tune with their senses .
They do have an uncanny ability to distinguish between true and ill intentions.
Their intuitiveness is seldom wrong and their heightened awareness is intrinsic.

I hope you enjoy your new home Marguerite...New beginnings are always so exciting... Take care

Love to you

LoveConquersAll- I have been by there and it is a beautiful area, I can understand why he loves it there. It was amazing to see and be a part of and a memory I will never forget. Love to you.

Timeless- Hi Timeless and thank you. The strange thing is not very many people know this or even think a thing about it. Where animals are concerned they will say the animal is mean or even evil. The sad thing is it is not the animals fault.

We are loving our new home and thank you. I miss our conversations. Take care and Love to you.


Rhonda   August 16th, 2010 10:47 pm ET

@Suzie
what love poems?
I see small quotes
You know, like when he smiled he had our attention, when he laughed, we laughed with him, and when he cried or looked sad he made us want to reach out and hold him, and when he said I love you more, he took our hearts forever.

I dont see any love poems?
I see more than just a unity of one

@LoveConquersAll
I am glad your mom enjoyed her hug. I hope she has a wonderful birthday this week, I am sure you have planned something special to make her smile. Even if its a nice dinner at home, some of her favorites. It's the little things that seem to make mom's smile.

I agree that I will always be a child at heart, keeps me young! Like Peter Pan, I don't want to grow up! A child sees the world through wondrous eyes, everything has value. When we stop seeing the world this way, we stop placing value on the world we live in. I hope to always see through child like eyes in wonderment! I think if more could do the same thing, we might have more willing to help save the planet we call home. Hope that you come by soon, so we can catch up. Who knows, maybe we can talk Mr. A into joining us? He left his special chair there, so I have been using it on occasion, as it is the most comfy one around. I had found it just for him, and hoped it would be coming around to use it more. Considering he has fallen asleep on a table, I thought at least this one would be more comfortable. The only thing I couldn't find was a seat belt so he would not fall off from laughing at my one liners. But its wide enough for him to roll around on, so I think I have covered the safety issue. LOL.
Take care and see you soon. Hugs and love.

I haven't really kept up with the blogs over the weekend, but after reading now.........I don't know what to say my friend.* SMH*. I know who you are and what you stand for..that I do know.

@ Letta & Timeless & Maria C

Always a pleasure to read your posts🙂

To those who think otherwise, I live my life...to the fullest. You have too, it's but a very short time we are given on this earth. I enjoy it every day, keep a kind heart and try and see the good in everyone. EVERYONE. I believe everyone has good within them..some have difficulty showing it sometimes, that's all. There is no need for nastiness, name calling and belittling people. That is not what MJ is about...he went through so much and still he channelled love and unity. He kept his dignity and integrity. These blogs are for him and his fans. Let’s show him some respect here please.
Think me crazy..but I think he is a good example to follow 😉

More importantly...don't do it for MJ...do it for YOU. Be true to yourself and others. If you can't say anything nice, don't say it at all. Communicating online is difficult as it is...a lot can be taken the wrong way and out of context, even if not meant that way. So be nice. Time goes by too fast to bicker with one another.

@Angie Pie, LoveConquersAll & Pixie Dust.
Since all of you enjoys reading my daily word I thought I would share this very special word to you all. Hope that you all like it, I know that I did...(smiling)with joy,
Called Compassion
I respond to others with compassion.
There are many opportunities to make a positive difference in the lives of others. If I am called upon to help someone, I respond with compassion, ready to lend a hand. I hold this person in high regard, seeing his or her divine inner qualities of courage, love and wisdom. I behold the Christ within and envision the individual blessed with health, wealth and happiness.
As I give, I receive. As I show compassion to others, I feel the love of God moving through me. I am uplifted and energized, and my own faith is renewed. What a blessing it is to know I may be the answer to someone's prayer! With humility for all I am and all I have to offer, I freely give to others.
The Lord is good to all, and his compassion is over all that he has made.–Psalm 145:9

Lori - Justice for Michael   August 17th, 2010 5:28 am ET

I was just reading the blog archive from last August 16th. Oh my goodness so much has changed. I really like the way we were all blogging with each other back then. I think we were all so deep in our grief and our attempts to process it, that we were careful with each other and supportive. It amazes me how much the tone of the blog has changed since. That night we were chatting about Jermaine's appearance on LKL, our reactions to the The Informer postings, Elvis, murder theories and how shocked we were when it was announced that the burial was going to be on 29 August. I'd forgotten how important the LKL bloggy was to us during that time. Frustrating that we are still awaiting justice. I am so sad to have lost touch with so many of those bloggers from back then.

And fyi...death is not a 'belief' so lets dispense with that word when it comes to Michael being dead. You may believe in God and may believe in your unity of one but death is not something to believe in...and even little children get that.
Funny to see those who have tried to create turmoil look for love and peace...ha! ha! Real Talk, of whoever you really are, you really should investigate some here who profess love and cry of 'bashing' and the dreaded word, 'hate.' See all their past discretions....or would that be to close to home?? 🙂 Never mind as past is past and cannot be changed...much like Michael died and nothing can change that.
And of course, Michael is no where here once again...of, mentioned in some lame poem now and then but those are for whom?? All night every night Michael is MIA and is replaced with self unity and self absorbed virtual nothingness.
Sad....
Suzie Q!!
We have the truth...and we are a unity of 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love you!!!!

I saw a young man at the beach over the weekend...he had vitiligo...he was shirtless and enjoying the beautiful day with his family, under a bug beach unbrella. His hands and arms and a huge part of his torso, legs, back and parts of his face and neck were porcelain white. I especially noticed his hands. He had the same sort of slightly discolored fingernails, and his hands were almost transparent, much like Michael's were. I walked over to him, spoke to him for a few minutes, and he told me he had vitiligo, 'like Michael Jackson did.' I told him I appreciated his proving that having vitiligo is not something to hide and that he was beautiful. This young man hugged me...it kind of startled me as I wasn't expecting it...and he thanked me for not just staring but for understanding...his mom gave me a smile of thanks. I have seen people with vitiligo before but not this extensive. I don't think I could be as brave as this young man...hopefully he will encourage others to live and be who they were born to be.
I took a picture with this young man...Akari. I wish him much health and a life filled with happiness and laughter.
Anyway...

Oh please forgive my typos...love babycarie🙂


babycarie   August 17th, 2010 8:17 am ET

To Akari...Michael would be so proud of you! I really feel that had Michael had a more supportive loving father he too would have found peace within himself. Akari's dad was right there tossing the football with his kids. I think Michael would have given up all his money to have his dad ask him to play a game of catch.
Joe, shame on you.

Michael...almost your birthday....and soon Murray will go to trial for nothing because nothing will bring you back and the worst case for him is a complete joke. He will have to answer for his 'troot' to a much higher power. Klein, Tohme, and the rest as well...Michael lived in fera...that same fear will be yours soon enough.


Maria Copelli   August 17th, 2010 10:28 am ET

Timeless,I am so happy to see a few more comments from you! Some say we are having a 'Love Fest'.Some of us feel it is so simple ,in a world that can be so hurtful and hateful ,why in the world would we come here on a blog ,under the topic of Michael Jackson,and Not show maybe just a Little L.O.V.E.?
I came across this post ,and actually ,it is from Michael Nephew ,Austin ,who is also working with Rodney Jerkins,on some music,he is Rebbies youngest child ,and he is a gentleman ,a true Jackson! Anyway here is the quote ,I found on his twitter page .
'It takes only an hour to like someone and just a day to Love someone- But it takes a LIFETIME to forget someone.' quote ......
We will and could never forget Michael ,this would be an impossibility ! But while we are here to share our feelings ,about him,,what can we do to show each other ,that we respect one anothers opinions,and thoughts.I feel Not one of us really knows what took place and why ,how,on June 25th 2009! So we come to support ,care ,exchange all possibilities! A good investigator ,sometimes,looks at the weirdest things ,that an untrained eye would have dismissed .This is my imperfect opinion.smile.....
I will end this by saying I would rather come to a blog where the people make you feel Loved ,and needed ,that one where there is hatred and nastiness! A blog that Michale would be proud to have his GOOD ..name attached to ,where people from all over the world can come and express themselves ,and not be hurt...that is all! '
Thank you Timeless ,for your compassion ,maturity ,and above all patience ! You remain our Gem .....Love to you ,Maria C.

Kat ! I Loved the way you expressed your self! I 1000% agree with you ,and keep them coming ! Love Maria C.

babycarie   August 17th, 2010 12:38 pm ET

Suzie Q!!!!!!!!!
Wow!! Now 'the informer' (???) has returned??!! How one person creates so many characters is really beyond creepy!! Wow!!
This place has become a disgrace. And one twisted blogger leading the way!!
Shameful...and a testament to those, or should I say him/her, with false ideologies.
Truly unreal that this twisted display is considered 'peace.'
Poor Michael...his legacy cannot be measured by this hideous mockery of nothingness.
I had posted week ago regarding the dance hall of fame but within this mess no one sees beyond the fake cult evil 'love'...
Wow............sad.


babycarie   August 17th, 2010 12:46 pm ET

A 'blog' is for the purpose of discussion...a 'chat roll' is for the purpose of all the sickening sweet verbose about 'love'!
And to have an original thought without re-posting quotes and referencing others posts would be refreshing...preferably regarding, oh, I don't know...MICHAEL JACKSON!!!!!!!!!!!

Michael hated to be exploited and used...and that is what you all do all the time on HIS bloggys!!!

Gaga is remarkable...I hope she does do the moonwalker thing!!!
Go Gaga!!!!

@The Informer

Well, I see you have returned from your extended vacation
It is nice to see you again
Hope you do stick around a lot longer
Welcome back my friend

Much Love To You

@Suzie
I know I am not the queen that is why I was asking who it was because I forgot to bow

The quotes I post are all about Michael and holding on to the love that we have for him in our hearts and that it will always be there.

I have no disciples, no groupies or anything else
I do not have anyone do anything for me
I can do things on my own
But it is nice to have people that believe there should be more unity and love and not hatefulness.
We are all here for the same reason
His name is MICHAEL
regardless of beliefs which I keep saying, it has nothing to do with that
I do not come here and say anything about him being here or not
Living or dead
I do not try and get anyone to change their opinions on anything
Just that we need to pull together and save this planet and keep the love going because that was the one thing that shined most about Michael, was the love that he has for the planet and the children.
I try and keep my belief to a distance and not throw it out there
I do not come on here and say wait for the BAM or anything else
I just put what I feel in my heart and I am not rude to anyone about it either
But know that I will not disappear like many others and I am only me and no one else.
So you can continue with your hatefulness and name calling and whatever it is that you want to say....delusional, cult, disciples, groupies or whatever it is.

Much Love

@Rhonda

A while ago we talked about our favorite PANTS. I am putting gold in third place now and am with you on the black ones from the Bad era – Dirty Diana video but I am really leaning toward the red leather in Blood on the Dancefloor video. He looks stunning in that video with the red – the rings – and long thick braid. Also love the jeans in They Don't Care About Us (Brasil) video.

Pixie Dust- Thank you. What really upsets me is when parents try to force children to go to people they do not care to be around (do not like). They realize that the child sees something they (the parent) do not see.

The Informer- Hi and welcome back, I hope you and your family are doing well. Your Aug 17th, 2:37am post above made me think of a post I wrote last fall. -- Dr Murray's attorney stands up and tells the judge, Dr. Murray is innocent, he did not murder Michael Jackson and I have proof. The judge then asks what proof do you have? The attorney turns to the courtroom doors and they are opened by a law officer and in walks Michael Jackson very much alive. Now that would certainly be a BAM to end all BAMS. Let's face it if a person walking down the street murdered Michael Jackson. That person would of been in jail the murder happened and would be rotting in jail until they turned 120 years old. They would not be out running around as Dr. Murray is doing. Again welcome back and take care. I love you.

I really love his hair in the short film Blood On The Dance Floor
He should wear it like that more often
It looks really good braided I think
And he looks really good in red as well
The jewelry looked good as well even though
not use to seeing him wear it a lot
If you have not seen the Ghost short film
you should watch it
Basically he looked good and is good at everything he did and does
Even the new music I am sure will be good
And for the ones that want to boycott Sony
I do hope that they realize that Michael owns 51 percent of Sony and he has controlling interest of it, so it is not Sony that will hurt

@Rhonda and Diane...count my vote with Blood on the Dance Floor Red...but all of the looks have something going for them. Rhonda, I still giggle over your spatula comment from last year.

@Maria C. My guess is that if the preliminary hearing goes forward as scheduled, is that Judge Pastor will decide there is enough evidence to warrant a trial. If that happens, there will be a number of procedural processes, the court will set a trial date (probably a year out) and a jury will be selected. We have a long ways to go.

@Rock With You horsegirl...I have never read the Rabbi's book. However, I have been advised that there are versions online, including just the transcripts.

JMHO, but I dont think @Real Talk and @The Informer are one and the same.

@Laura....LOL interesting comparison of the "drive-by" tweeting style and the "hit-and-run" method of @The Informer.

@Curious Cat...the comment about authentication was a reference to a previous post. You kinda had to be here. But thanks for your imput.

'Janet Jackson has said she still finds it hard to look at pictures of her late brother Michael.

Michael died suddenly aged 50 at his home in LA in June last year and his sister Janet admitted she is reminded of him wherever she goes.

Speaking to UK newspaper Daily Record, she said: 'It's hard for me to look at a picture of him, or listen to his music on the radio. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about him.'

The star added that she still struggles to come to terms with his loss a year on.

She said: 'I can't say that time will completely heal things. But it definitely makes things better.

'I still feel that on a daily basis. Some people don't know how to get out of that place. But you've got to get out. It will never go away but, with time, it gets a little better."


Diane in Minneapolis   August 17th, 2010 4:39 pm ET

@ Rhonda –

Yes I saw Ghosts. It was grand. I think MJ was definitely moving toward film and Prince Michael is now also interested. Loved the Blood on the Dance Floor dancing. I think MJ gets a bad rap from men sometimes because they can't understand how women could think he is so hot. They can understand how we should be hot for Brad Pitt (I'm not, however) but not MJ. I bet MJ has more women fans than any other "hunk" out there.! I have not had the time to read everything on Sony so I can't take a stand on them one way or the other right now but I did go to and purchase TII and I will probably get the new music too. To each their own on that one!

@ Lori
Where is GENE?? We need help with The Informer! I wonder if the Informer is the Shadow or knows the Shadow. Or if the Informer is holding Gene hostage (?) I also remember we had theorized that TI was a bloggy mod employed by Larry. Spidey sense says the Shadow doesn't know. LOL.


babycarie   August 17th, 2010 5:19 pm ET

Apparently Michael was not first with his family or he would still be alive!! A failed intervention is not acceptable with family!!! He had stated his fans 'are' his family...maybe because his family saw dollar signs when looking at him...

The Jackson 4 were not there during the attempts at intervention...I hope they can live with that while plugging Michael.

Well, Michael was the only one that a had a tent set up for all the fainting and it wasn't just women. But, yes I am sure that he had more women than any other entertainer. Not even the women fainted for Elvis the way they do for Michael.
Michael is a very gorgeous looking man. He always has been and that will never change at least not to me.
Even during This Is It....he looked gorgeous. But that is just my opinion.
Michael I am sure has made sure that all his stuff is very secure no matter what because he is just that kind of a business man. And we just have to look at it that the other men entertainer's are very jealous of Michael. I for one do not like Brad Pitt....Sorry.....Just my opinion....

Even if we didn't all always agree on things or get along with each other, we all shared that experience. Those of us that were there know what I am talking about. It was something that had to be experienced. If you weren't there you can't really understand what that time was like for everyone who was there. It just is what it is. We all know it. And I know what I know and I know it to be so.

During some of the darkest times of our lives we had each other and the LKL bloggy. Who knew it was going to be so important? Or that so many of us would remain friends, despite all of the ups and downs. I don't think any of us ever expected that we would loose Michael so soon. I wonder how we would have processed it all, if we had not all managed to find our way to the LKL blogs? The experience has been unique.

@ "The Informer"

The "Star Witness" is deceased.

You know, the reason for the entire trial. That is quite sad; setting up more people for disappointments and expections.

"To refresh the memory of many. Michael was the old man in disguise at the Memorial NOT the burial. The old man at the burial was a decoy to dispel want many had caught on to. June 25th 2009 – August 23rd 2010 is the Overture. Look for the Star Witness. This Is Not It. This is Reality Film"

That statement is not reflective of a Michael Jackson fan nor a person who has any interest in the fans of Michael Jackson. You are not even the "original" Informer. You don't think people remember the writing style of the original Informer? What happened to your "big prediction" in December of 2009? You think because you disappear for a year people would forget? Well, you go ahead on a lead people into a big cave of emptiness and darkness. And what is even more disrespectful to Michael's honor is that you will have people that will actually continue to follow and entertain your posts.

@BABYCARIE- How are you? I hope you are well! LMAO 302's!! Group rate needed for sure, wonder if insurance will cover it? How is BC? I hope she is feeling much better today. I saw your post re: the man on the beach with vitiligo; thank you for sharing that heartwarming story. Michael made it possible for many to proud of themselves indeed.

@LORA re: 2:43 OMG, LOL- what an observation! Yes of course, TI is compiling tweets and "retweeting" on the blog!

No one will dishonor Michael or accuse him of pilfering and lying to the world- That is not the entertainment venue Michael supported. The lies that Michael was accused of were the lies that haunted him until he drew his last breath. Why in the world would HE DO THE SAME THING TO HIS FANS?

He wouldn't. Or would he?


SuzieQ   August 17th, 2010 9:12 pm ET

Carie, of all the people gone, I only want DN back! A lady with courage, honesty and integrity just like you, and a lady who really, genuinly cares about Michael and above all, cares about Justice for Michael...she wasn't just talk, she was action ...

DN, you're still missed here.

@babycarie

MTV has lost their minds
People need to say something about this
Michael certainly deserves having an award named after him
after all he did with breaking down barriers. I will be sending an e-mail or something their way

Lori - Justice for Michael   August 17th, 2010 10:57 pm ET

@The Informer...not sure if I can wrap my mind around the concept of a "reality film" but I could maybe consider a Disney style fantasy film....I often wondered if you worked for AEG or Sony in the marketing department....now that the "forgotten" music is slated to be released...maybe The Informer returns to generate some more interest? After all....isn't it all about the $$$$?

I am curious as to how anyone would know who the original The Informer was or wasn't and if the one posting now is the one who posted before or not. LOL It is the internet, anyone can apparently be anyone, as so many on this blog have so repeatedly said, apparently at will and at any given time. We didn't know then; we don't know now; all we have is speculation with no proof. Unless one of us works for the LKL blogs and has access to IP addys how would anyone know who is who with any kind of certainty?

So along with trying to out The Informer, is the new game IDing the "Star Witness" ? If there is one I suppose there could be a plethora of choices. Maybe the prosecution has Tohme Tohme? Or maybe the Star Witness is the infamous Stripper Pole Woman? Could CM turn state's evidence? I hope the DA has something going for him...I don't want this case to take a hinky turn.

@Nicole...always delightful to see you on the bloggy. I have always loved that tagline...wonder when it's going to happen. The wheels of justice are so dang slow. Now if Gene, lex, Jax, Toni and Linda were here.....well it would almost be like the blogs of last summer. Pass the popcorn and the Cheerwine. Even though we were grieving there were some light-hearted moments.

@Judie...whuut whuut? LOL now those were some humorous times on the ol'bloggy. I would love to see many of the originals back on here...we had some interesting convos back in the day. Maybe now that the court case should be seeing some action maybe more would return. How is the Spider?

@Mara–Girl its about time you were on the bloggy again. Every time I see @Lucero I tell her hi for you and to hit us up on facebook.

Uncle Arnie has been remarkably silent for awhile....I wonder if he will be making a press release any time soon...though of course, Brian Oxman has been doing such a brilliant job in the role of the clown and providing comic relief these days.

@the blog...apparently MJ is also being blamed for some of the unemployment woes...70 workers were laid off because propofol is being discontinued.

Have a peaceful night...or as Marlon would say..."Study Peace".

THANK YOU!!!!
A RATIONAL VOICE FOR MICHAEL!!!
BC is delightful, thanks for asking!
And NO, Michael would not...could not be the person of deceit he is described as being here...never!!!!!!!! It was not in his heart to be that person. And top that off with the LAPD, FBI, DA, coroner, Katherine's own words, his children left behind, etc. etc. Preposterous does not even begin to describe. And to think, this is who was being called out to?? Seriously??!! UGH!! And it is amazing that anyone would entertain this filth.
Love to you!!
And insurance does cover a 302!!! Good info, huh??!! 🙂

LoveConquersAll   August 17th, 2010 11:33 pm ET

Hello Everyone ~

I finally had a moment to check in and as I read some of these comments, it is so sad that we all just can't seem to get along. There is no need to keep reminding everybody about who this blog is primarily about. We all know it is about Michael Jackson. Whether we quote his words, his poems, his music, etc., or simply join in on a so-called "Love Fest", it should not make any difference. I cannot speak for Michael, nor can anyone else...However, I do know what he represented time and time again. An unconditional and unselfish love...L.O.V.E - Plain and simple. Who really cares if one chooses to use more than one name or identity. As crazy as that may be, and honestly I don't see the reasoning behind it, but what really matters is the message being posted. If you waste your time trying to determine or play detective, you're missing the point. I think this is crazy. I love and adore so many friends that I have made on this blog since I started posting on June 25, 2010. As I explained once before on one of my earlier posts, I felt compelled to join in and participate that day because I was still mourning a great loss one year later like all of us.

We need to "Come Together" over Michael. This is so important. Please show some respect towards one another. Practice Love, Compassion, Empathy and Peace. Please don't let Michael's message get lost in the shuffle. Sorry for the lecture but I just wish everyone simply could get along. It would be a step in the right direction. This blog is for everyone and again, I cannot speak for Michael, but I am sure he would be smiling if the focus was more on loving not only him but each other. Love and Peace to ALL!

@ ibelieve 25
@ Rhonda

@ Letta
@ Kat
@ Maria C.

I just want to thank all of you so very much for the Birthday wishes for my mom. That was so thoughtful and sweet. I can't tell you how much it made my mom smile, truthfully. You made her day...She was delighted! I have busy making plans, gathering family members together for a Birthday Dinner celebration at one of her favorite restaurants. I am planning this for Sunday evening. All of her grandchildren will be there as well. I am so excited for her, you have no idea how much!

I took her and a neighbor of mine for lunch today. My neighbor is a bit of a loner and sometimes I will ask her to join my mom and me for lunch or just for a ride to get out of the house. She is always tickled pink. It brings me so much joy to be able to make someone smile. There is nothing like it. Forgive me, I am far from perfect, I do at times get upset and have days where I am ready to scream, but all in all, I treasure every moment and would not trade it for the world. I don't want to be long-winded, my friends, its just habit I guess...So sorry!

I'll say it again, you have all been so wonderful and have welcomed me from the beginning and made me feel so special and loved. I can tell you all are true Michael Jackson fans because of the L.O.V.E you convey to each other and to me. Thank you all for that. God Bless You and Much Love to all of you! Keep the Faith!


LoveConquersAll   August 17th, 2010 11:52 pm ET

LoveConquersAll- I agree with what you just said 1000%!!! The thing is the closer the court date gets, the crazier posters will become. It is just best to ignore those that are trying to cause problems. The more you try to reason with them the crazier it gets.

Love to all.

@LCA

Cherish every moment that you have with your mom.
Both my parents are gone and both sets of grandparents.
Although I did not get to know my mother until I was pregnant with my first child, she was and is still my mother.
My grandparents raised me and did a wonderful job I do believe.
I miss them with every passing day.
At least I got to know my mom for 10 years before she passed at the age of 52. Hold on to her for as long as you can my friend and love her to no end. Always tell her everyday and keep her heart filled with all that you can give. It is for eternity my friend. They stay with even when they are gone.
Again Happy Birthday wishes to mom. Sending her hugs and kisses..

All My Love To You

Darn I go to work only to return to find that I neel alot of popcorn to read this blog. Boy I miss the good stuff when I'm away. I see this blog has some who are a few french fries short of a HAPPY meal. Having said that I am glad to see that the positive bloggers out weigh more than those who are negative.

@ Letta –
Thank you for your daily word. Unfortunately didn't have time to read it before leaving at work or even at work. Today was just hectic. Now here at home I was able to have time to read COMPASSION and that was beautiful..

@ The Informer –
Welcome back. I hope you continue to post.

@Rhonda –
OMG Rhonda you didn't tell me you belong to a group. Rhonda and The Disciples. Sounds like a singing group. Rhonda it seems you are so many people including me probably. So now I ponder if all these posts are you – hehe.

@ Real Talk –
Wow you carry a big sword and it can sure cut right to the truth. You pull no punches. It is a shame that there are people who enjoy getting their high putting other people down. That was not Michael and never will be.

@ Love Conquers All –
Wish your mom many birthday blessings. It is great that your planning for her special this Sunday. I know that this will be a memorable time for her when the family gather to celebrate. Don;t forget to take videos =) Except may I give this tip. Don't let a family who never held a cam or is drunk to handle taking videos. On my grandmother's 50th Wedding Anniversay we did that and we got plenty of shots of some fly on the wall (no kidding) and the cam spinning around by the person holding it. That when I viewed it for the first time, I got queasy. Actually just posting this is making me queasy again.

Anyway, I wish your mom the very best Birthday and may the family rejoice in the celebration of God's gift.

Also, you are very welcome about those of us wishing your Mom, an Happy Birthday, and I truly hope it be a beautiful dinner party this sunday and please wish her another Happy Birthday for me and give her a hug also. If my mom, was still with me her B'day is also this month on the 23rd, but I still say I love you on that day always. ....Love, Hugs, & Blessings to you and your family....

@Angle Pie
Hey the girl; sorry that your schedule did not allow you time to read the daily read word, but hey you was able that evening. It does not really matter when you read it just as long as you do my friend. We, all need a little guidance every one in a while. Especially, when we dealing, with negatives’, trashing and taking comments of others and tearing it apart or misreading into them. You right about one thing in spite of such ugliness, we still have positive posting here, and that to me says a lot.
Well, one thing I will do is ignore the negative postings and post to the positive comments, because all that is going on is leading to nasty words and fighting. Pretty, sure when this so call prelimary hearing get’s on it way that we going to see lot of negative posting here and people coming here to bash at those who does not think as they do. So, all my daily words are needed for the time being. To here it is after this long comment to you my friend. LOL
@Pixie Dust
@LoveConquersAll
I hope that both you you enjoy it also.
Call "Protection"
Wherever I am, God is and all is well.
When I feel threatened, I may feel a certain level of fear or anxiety. I may react by searching frantically for someone or something to help me. But there is a better way. In times of fear, I have faith that nothing can harm me, because I am in the midst of the presence of God.
God is within, without, above and below, an all-encompassing presence. It does not matter how chaotic outer conditions may seem, I am secure in the presence of God and I maintain inner peace and composure.
When I have a tranquil mind, no inharmonious experience has any power over me. I walk unalarmed in the midst of danger and bring peace to those who are afraid.
Our soul waits for the Lord; he is our help and shield.–Psalm 33:20
(as you all can see Psalms is one of my favorites of the bible)
Love, Hugs, & Blessing to All
P.S. If there is typos plz forgive me...smiles

Lori - Justice for Michael   August 18th, 2010 5:54 am ET

@Marguerite...LOL! I know we used to have our issues back in the day....but there are times now when you type the most profound comments!

@Angel Pie...not sure if we have spoke before. Hello. There used to be someone who posted as @Angelwings back in the day. You are a different person, I think?

@The Informer.....whoever you may be...well, it is always interesting to read another point of view. Oh and I do have a question for you. It has to do with Pearl, Jr. What do you think of her book....or are you Pearl?

@ I do wonder what ever became of DN. She was a strong presence for awhile...she used to post over at Susan's around the first of the year...but that was a long time ago...and I haven't seen her at any of the other hangouts recently. She and Gene used to have some interesting discussions. I wonder where all of the Marias, Sandys, Barbaras, Lynns, Stu, My take, 8080, ZZZdogg, anthony, simba, and all the rest are doing. It would be something if everyone came home to the LKL on Michael's birthday. After all this is where we all first met.

Do you guys remember how we all used to tell everyone hello and goodbye....everyday?

Actually the LKL blogs seem rather tame these days...some of the stuff that happens on Facebook and Twitter just has me SMH. It is really quite difficult to figure out all the players and sort out all of the issues.

I am just trying to stay positive and see what happens at court next week....or however long it takes them to get something accomplished.

Michael Jackson never owned 51% of Sony. Sony is an international corporation with numerous divisions under its control. At one time MJ owned 50% of the Sony ATV Catalogue. In 2007 Sony loaned MJ $300 million for a loan MJ had, using a 25% of MJ's share of his ATV Catalogue as collateral. As of 2010, that loan continues to be paid back to Sony from MJ's Estate. That loan is due to expire in 2017. As of this date, Michael continues to own a 25% stake in his own ATV Catalogue.
*******************
The Informer from 2009 never made spelling errors. The Informer that is posting lately on this blog is. The writing style is different also. The Informer of 2009 never pushed love and unity. The Informer of 2009 primarily provided hints that MJ was alive and didn't get involved with beliefs or MJ's messages to the world. The Informer also left the LKL blog in 2009 when **mj** began to post and TI posted on Sept. 26 that "I won't be here for awhile. "Someone" beat me to it! Total surprise. I'll stay quiet & let joker speak. He's the boss".

babycarie   August 18th, 2010 7:55 am ET

I really have to laugh at this place!
Thinking you all are spreading love and a positive message all the while spewing anger and resentment referencing 'hate' and 'bashing' when referring to others...seems like you all are blogging contradictions...well, angry chat roll contradictions. Encouraging the rage, patting each other on the back for anger filled nothingness posts...and from the very same who have spread their own 'hate' and 'bashing' over and over...yet that is spreading love and the 'message.' Then to top it off, thinking that Michael would be so very proud of you all. Seriously??!! To think that this display of ignorance and total disregard for the man himself is Michael's 'message' is the very essence of what has destroyed the blogs meant for HIM. Michael Jackson was a man of substance, not words on the surface and emptiness and rage underneath.

Suzie, MMJ, Susan...we speak consistent truth...funny how that is considered 'negative'...laughable!

We are here for Michal Jackson...and those who used to come here for Michael and don't any more (DN, Coco, etc.) got disgusted with the chat roll hoax and the constant rage at their truth from those who profess 'love.'...adult conversation regarding Michael Jackson's death has turned into some chat roll nothingness for less than a handful who blog rage with many different names, and this place has made a joke of Michael.

SuzieQ!!
MMJ!!
Susan!!
Love to you all!!
We have the truth!
And we know that Michael is dancing with God and relieved of all his pain.
Sad to think that Murray will basically get away with murder.
I hope that wrongful death suit succeeds...at least Murray will not be able to profit from killing Michael. Heartbreaking.

Suzie...I too wish for DN. She was Michael's biggest bloggy fan!!!
Love and chocolate and fireflies and glistening stars to you!


babycarie   August 18th, 2010 8:06 am ET

Michael Jackson died June 25, 2009.
That is the truth.
There is no anger or 'hate' in speaking the truth.
Death is not a 'belief' it is a fact.
A belief is when one believes in God, believes in life after death, believes in Santa...the intangible is a belief. The fact and tangible reality is Michael died on June 25, 2009 from acute propofol intoxication and various benzos. After the coroner thoroughly examined his lifeless body, he was laid to rest...that is fact.
I would like to believe he will one day return to this earth in another form...the world sure could use more Michael Jackson's...but that is my belief that there is 'more to life than this'.
Rest in peace sweet Michael

I too miss the "good times" of last summer, things were different then, I was always excited to see what everyone had written. Now the constant bashing, the horrible negativity, even thou its only a few bloggers that do it, it really disrupts the feeling of peace and love we all felt last year.

Real Talk   August 18th, 2010 1:08 pm ET

MMJ and Susan, I was just waiting for you two to write something and I'll be done for awhile. Oh the hypocrisy. MMJ was Micheal Jackson about posting up videos of mental illness in reference to people who blog here. And Susan I was inspired by you. You are the one who have posted past blogs to incite division. I often wondered how you past those nasty writings of the ones you support. How you two act like you are so above things when you support the nastiest bloggers. You are only fooling yourselves. Not to mention the Sybil Sally. Who can take the credit for that? Please,please,please. To all my "other personalities" who are being accused of being me I'm sorry you have to go through that. Amazing how you all are victims when you can't admit to your foolishness. Don't take the stance of Goliath if you are afraid to fall. Until next time( and I won't be back for awhile),real talk.

Letta(IbeLieve)   August 18th, 2010 1:51 pm ET

Good Afternoon to All;
Before I start replying back to those who posted to me, I like to say something first. After reading the post this morning for me, because it is that here, people making fun or jokes about wishing someone an Happy Birthday is consider being honest and polite, Now, I personally see nothing wrong with that at all, but there are some who still consider being rule as always. I try like Hell, and yes I said that to ignore negativity like that, but this is not someone makes a joke of. If you do not like what others post why not bother to read then and stick to what you like best, or who follow your lead, and stop bashing what other say here. This to me is a childish move, and not being an adult. Which I assumed that we all are, but I guess that was wrong.
Now, before anyone start posting to me about another name let me makes this very clear, I know what and who I am, I do not own anyone no explanations for what I did, at the time I make it clear and I have nothing more to say about it. Instead of worrying about who or what I posted as, you need to worry about all that you may have posted as. It is none of your business what I do and who I posted too, that said I am done.
@Rock With You Horsegirl
Good After, because that is what it is now for this blog, however I still in the morning zone. LOL. To answer your question no I did not read the Michael Jackson Tapes, but however I did listen to them. I felt that whatever meetings or confutations that Michael and the Rabbi had should have stay between them. What IMO, of the talks between the two was none of our business, Michael thoughts at that time Michael, was going through something’s, as many of us does, and the Rabbi, was totally wrong for making a profit off it. I see nothing wrong with what Michael was staying or feeling. To be honest I have been through some of the emotionally stuff, as many others have just as Michael was doing. Those was his thoughts, his feeling, his findings and so far. Michael, is no different them we are when you come to a point that you have various reason or actions for what he talk about. So, my feeling on what the Rabbi said was wrong and very misguided. The entire time Rabbi, was looking at was the almighty dollar, and to be honest the Rabbi is no position to down someone else, before he takes a look at himself. I hope this answers your question…..Hugs, Love & Blessings to you…..Letta
@Maria C
Good Afternoon my friend; Yes, I am ready to be on my way eight days to go now. Wow time sure fly’s when you waiting to go and have a good time in sin city. LOL Also, Maria, thank you much for your comment to me. I do try to continue to stay in steadfast way. I will admit that at times reading some comments on this blog will make you was to lose it. It is a shame who adults if this are true act. At times I feel that children are postings, and not adults. But, I do know one thing I will not let them take my spirit away no matter what they say. I look forward to reading your and other positive comments, which out ways the negative. So, what all been said I pray that your day is going wonderful and look forward to reading your next comment. Hugs, Love, & Blessings to you and your family……Letta
@CuriousCat
Hi, I not posted to you I do not believe, but if I had then that is good also. I just wanted to say, I agree with your post @12:23pm. It was nice back them, but not as great now with the few that always bashing, and dissecting, or trashing at people. I believe that they enjoy disrupting the peace here. Only time there is peace and calmness on the blog is the weekends. What that said , you understand. Thank you for your comment of sharing your thoughts……Love, Hugs, & Blessings……Letta

Always remember everyone, that for Michael, family is first and his fans are second and that will never change

-The Informer

So true, and as it should be !!!! For those who continually bash Michaels family, they really don't understand the meaning of "family"

You do Michael a great injustice when you totally disrespect his family. You do not know them, nobody does and it really doesn't matter because they are HIS family, show respect !!!!


SuzieQ   August 18th, 2010 2:15 pm ET

Ok, some still think that death is an "opinion". How about we ask our bloggy "legal experts" for a "Legal Opinion" on whether Michael died or not. Watta ya think Informer?

Carie, yes DN would be a wonderful presence here ... but I stopped dreaming long ago ... I meant to say DN was the one I wanted back "most" but there are a few others I would love for them to come back too, although I don't hold much hope ... things will never be the same again. You saw my old post from last year that my C&P s... posted here recently, and which I succeeded in getting removed. This blog was an amazing place to be. That's how I felt about the bloggy back then; you know how I feel about the bloggy now LOL.

Anyone with enough time on their hands to check archives, go back to where marguerite first appeared on the bloggy and see what happened from that moment on.... see for yourself.

Maria C. thank you for sharing that bit of information,greatly appreciated.Have a wonderful day Maria,love and many smiles to you.

LoveConquersAll,Maura, Marguerite and all. This evening I am taking my son's to see Bryan Adams in concert.I am not sure what time it will get out,but I will definitely visit the blog when I get home.As I truly enjoy reading all of your comments.All that you's have to share about Michael, is very much appreciated.I love to read Michael's words,his poems, lyrics to his songs.Thank you all so kindly for sharing all of that.I have a sweet story I'd like to share with you all,Last fall I went to see the Blueman Group,they had someone open for them.Can't remember his name,but he does portraits to music.He just kinda jumps up and splats the paint on the canvas.The first portrait he did was of John Lennon, he does this to a melody of the artists music.The second portrait he did was of Michael,yes it was absolutely amazing to watch.When he was done the portrait everyone cheered,it was absolutely beautiful. Sorry for such along post but I just wanted to share that with yous.May you all have a wonderful day.Love and many smiles to all.


ibelieve25   August 18th, 2010 4:01 pm ET

@CuriousCat
I understand exactly what you are saying. Sad really. There is just a small number that always claims they will no longer read other's posts, yet, they continue to do so as they respond to them.

@LoveConquersAll
Yes, looking forward to more chats. Always nice to catch up with a friend.
I do hope that Mr. A stops by soon though, so you can chat with him some more. You'd be surprised at his sense of humor..no wait, that would be my sense of humor, that knocks him to the ground. Can't you just picture him typing on the keyboard from the floor? LOL. Its happened.

@Morg
Even though you haven't posted here in awhile, I just wanted to tell you that I appreciate you always. I can't believe how lucky we were to find each other here, of all places. MJ has that kind of effect on people though, bringing them together from all parts of the world. I am blessed to have you in my life since last year, and looking forward to many more to come. You are my heart, love you more than you know.

Hugs!


Marguerite   August 18th, 2010 4:19 pm ET

Lori– Justice for Michael-- Thank you and I appreciate your kind words. We have had our differences, but we still get along with each other. What I write about is what I know, what I feel and I don't beat around the bush. I have talked to people from all walks of life and have picked up info along the way from those conversations. As I have said many a time I am a people watcher. So I have learned a lot about human nature and the way people are just by watching them. Do you know that people can say one thing but their body language says something completely different? A person's body language will give them away every time.lmao Even here on the blogs people talk about changing their ways but sooner or later they are right back to doing what they said they would not do any more. I also love to read and you wouldn't believe the info a person can pick up in books.lol A lot of what I say is just all out common sense. Where the blogs are concerned, I learned real fast people want conversations easy going and artificial. I will than likely catch flack for that last statement, but it is the truth. In real life (off the LKL blogs) I speak my mind, say what I think and let the chips fall where they may. To be honest with you what I crave and want the most is honest to good conversations here on the blogs. I can honestly say I am sick of the fluff as well as people saying one thing and doing another. Want to bet I catch flack on that last statement?lmao Take care and love to you.

The Informer   August 18th, 2010 5:26 pm ET

I assure you I'm the same Informer that Lori, Rhonda (Much Love), and Stu knew of since August of 2009🙂 . It is a lot harder to speak to everyone now that posts are regulated and take a long time to be possibly approved. To answer MourningMJ, December 7th 2009, which is the date in question, was a special date that was later postponed to April 9th 2010. Uri Geller then spoiled April 9th by announcing it on his television show on April 2nd. This has made the date be postponed once again.

@ Butterfly ~ Thank you...Love & Blessings to you!

@ Marguerite ~ (August 17th, 2010 11:59 pm)
You are so right, my friend. It is senseless to try and reason with some of the posters on here, that's for sure. A real waste of valuable time – All so they can get the satisfaction. Besides, it falls on deaf ears anyway. The problem is that some of us choose to be childish instead of child-like. But I still love everyone just the same. Much Love to you!

@ Rhonda ~ Thank you for your kindness. It is so appreciated. I can tell your grandparents did an outstanding job in raising you just by your gentle and soothing spirit through your words. So sorry your mom passed away at such an early age, my friend. I know we all have to face it one day but it certainly doesn't make it any easier. I so agree that every moment needs to be cherished and I so appreciate every day, believe me. Just building memories every day to last me a lifetime! God Bless You and Much Love!

@ Angel Pie ~ I want to thank you for your enjoyable post. I will definitely take your advice on the filming of the dinner party for my mom. I don't feel like viewing just a fly on the wall and miss all the real moments...LOL! You made me laugh so hard when I read your post...Thanks I needed that! By the way, I did not feel queasy while reading your post, just to let you know...LOL! Love to you!

Letta ~ My mom says "thank you" for the hug. She is getting so many virtual birthday hugs & well wishes from people she doesn't even know but yet when I explain to her where they're coming from, she smiles...Thank you so much! You brought tears to my eyes when you mentioned remembering your mom on her Birthday every year and telling her you love her. So genuine....So touching. Life and Time is so precious...Love & Many Blessings to you and your family!

@ Maria C. ~ Yes, my dear...My mom and I will always cherish our fun times together and there are many!!!! My love for Michael runs deep no matter what anyone else's opinions are on this blog. And I know I do not stand alone, we ALL carry our torches held high for Michael and we will shine his light wherever we go. Love & Hugs to you always, my friend!

Love, Light & Peace to ALL!

Hi Christine!!
Akari is an amazing wonderful human being! I am a better person for having met such a lovely uninhibited soul who in the midst of stares and whispers laughed and played like he owned the world!! His hands...the pure whiteness of his arms and hands was exquisite. I can see from this beautiful man why it would have been difficult for Michael to have performed in front of millions with his skin changing...the world was so cruel to Michael without his vitiligo being exposed. What is beautiful to some is lost on others. But it really is beautiful...and Akari is remarkable! What is beautiful to some is lost on others...I hope those who look at Akari see how beautiful he is.

Suzie Q!!!!
OMG!! You are a total delight!!
And the retched evil one...spooky!! Now that is 'real' hate! You can feel the hate from that one!

Yes, I do hope I get a chance to chat with our friend, Mr. A...I miss him so much! I especially like the sense of humor part, gotta have one of those these days! And no, I can't imagine Mr. A falling out of his chair (that oh, so comfortable chair that it is) and typing on his keyboard from the floor...Oh my...I must say he is quite gifted indeed to be able to still type that way...LOL!!!! Just as long as his seatbelts are fastened!!!!! I am still a proud disciple of L.O.V.E! Love to you!

@TI you always be rocking the ol LKL bloggy when you show up! LOL

You even inspired me to write a poem for you back. ILYM just for bringing a little history to the bloggy. The newbies here just don't know what the experience was like back in the day.

It's a nice break from the skirmishes between the factions. Thanks for the distractions...everyone just needs to back up off The Informer and let him/her exercise her 2nd Amendment rights. After all, all the rest of us want the opportunity to post our thoughts and opinions.

But, I would feel just a bit better if you could authenticate yourself....have you heard anything from William lately?

@JACQ/NL- Hello, Jacq, nice to see you here! I hope you are doing well, I haven't spoken to you since the Haiti Earthquake. I hope you and your family are in peace. Wishing you strength for this coming Monday, Jacq....

@SUZIEQ- OMG, all I can say is lmao all day. It's your neighbor's cousin's birthday/graduation/potty training award day? lol....Did Elvis the Pelvis make a surprise appearance?

@SUSAN- You are exactly correct regarding The Manipulation Machine. The original Informer was very diplomatic, did not use emotes and never supported any phantom events such as the one suggested in the 5:26 post- I guess the resurrection was cancelled because Uri Gellar had his events mixed up in his calendar book? Or was it because Janet wore a white suit in the November 2009 ABC Interview?

See how more difficult it is to keep up with the LIES then it is the truth?

@BabyCarie- You are absolutely correct. Death is not a belief. Just because we don't see it, doesn't it mean it doesn't exist. I don't see Neptune nor I have I ever been there, but I know it's there. I've never been to Afghanistan, but I know it's there. I suppose life is a belief too. Are you really blogging Carie? Is that you? I believe it's you, therefore you are.

Turning Michael Jackson into a religion and a belief system- the ultimate dishonor to any human being. Dead or alive.

No one will dishonor Michael or accuse him of pilfering and lying to the world- That is not the entertainment venue Michael supported. The lies that Michael was accused of were the lies that haunted him until he drew his last breath. Why in the world would HE DO THE SAME THING TO HIS FANS?

Lori - Justice for Michael   August 18th, 2010 7:31 pm ET

@Susan62509...You know how much I always appreciate your fine research skills....but actually our original The Informer did make some spelling errors. I am sure when you review the archives you will catch those...TI always displayed sharp grammar skills though...
I remember back in the day that you seemed to think that the original The Informer was a member of the Jackson Family.....but now you think that this The Informer is someone else? Well maybe, like many others on the bloggy, their viewpoints, perceptions and writing styles have changed over the course of time....there has sure been much speculation on this topic; I guess no one will really know for sure....well maybe Larry but so far he isn't talking.

IDK what to think...but as long as LKL has provided the blogs I will continue to participate.....and after all now that I have been anointed Queen of the Bloggy, I have no intention of abdicating...in fact I think I will make a point of being here even more frequently, drafting lengthy sermons, and providing tasty snacks to my minions while talking about love, volunteer opportunities and saving the earth.

I plan on appointing @Gene to HRHLJFM Chief Investigator. Since I am Queen it would be a conflict of interest for me to be the "legal expert" so I will have to find another for that post. And of course, @True must be appointed Poet Laureate. Let’s see, maybe Tay should be appointed Transportation Minister. Oh and The Informer shall be elevated to the post of Wizard. Then there is the Honorary Counsel of The HAGS.

Yes the seat belt had best be fastened..double tight! LOL!!!! It is quite talented to be able to type from the floor. Would love to see the pictures of that. I am glad to know you are doing well, please give your mom another hug for me. I know that hugs are important.
Its nice to see how so many understand the concept of respect, yet sad to see that others still do not get it. They continue to be the hate givers because of the need to boost their own egos. This is one reason Mr. A stopped posting. He was merely trying to reach out to a few, to help bring some sort of peace here. While most seemed to embrace that help he offered, it is still the same very few who continue to perpetuate hate and anger. I wonder if they will ever understand why they continue to do this, or why they feel they are the "only true fans" here. Such false sense of who they are, makes them nothing more than the common bully on the playground, very proud that they have run off so many, including some they call friends. Yet here they are, asking they come back. Why? To continue to play their game of "I'm right and your not', which reminds me of the kids I see on the playground at elementary school. They lack the diversity of grown ups to comprehend that others with different ideals can co-exist in this world of ours peacefully. Instead they resort to picking apart conversations, people, name calling, and pointing fingers to make themselves feel better? Well, I hope Mr. A sees that most of us on here are peaceful, caring, and we are trying to promote peace with all. Many times we've asked for tolerance, not to agree with what we might believe, but simple respect. That is the very essence of the man Michael Jackson is. Anyone who can't understand that, will never understand Michael. Anyway, I have to run for now. Take care my friend. Love and hugs to you.

PS @ Mr. A
Drop me line so I know you are ok, please? Otherwise..I'll be making that call...you know the one I am talking about...LOL!!!!

@LoveConquersAll
Hi dear friend; That makes me Happy to know that we made you mom smile, for all the Birthday Hugs, she receive from virtual friends of yours. I sorry if I brought tears to your eyes, telling you how I feel and what I do on my mom’s birthday. I know to some it may sound silly to still tell someone that you Love them, even if that are no longer here. But for me that will never change, she was my mom whom pass a very young age to me at least of 44 years old, and not only that as I mention before she was my best friend also. In all these years I still cannot call anyone else a best friend, because they cannot amont to with my mom was to me. What I really miss the most was our phone calls that lasted till early a.m. mornings , talking about everything and nothing. Someone, that you can tell secrets to and know that you will never heard about them from another, LOL and I kept her secrets also. People, could not understand how me and my mom could talk on the phone like that every day, but we did. So, you see that is a love in my heart that will never leave, and on the day of her birth, it bring me so much pleasant to look up and say I love you, never forget me. Just thinking about it now brought me joy. I do agree with you life is very precious as well as time and I try and enjoy my girls and grandkids much as I can.(beside this spoil brats every though their adults, will not let me breathe without their presents), right now me and they baby girl are having a discussion because she misunderstood my days always in Sin City. LOL She thought I will be home on the 29th (which is a no-no)instead of the 30th. Ha-ha, it seems that she cannot stand the fact that I will be out of her sight for 4 night and 5 days. Smile. Did not mean to go on and on, but when it comes to talking about my mom can’t help it. Thank you for your comment it brought a smile and a few tears to my eyes just thinking about mother(my heart)…….Love, Hugs, & Blessings to you and your family…..Keeping the Faith! My dear….Letta

Love, Bev

So, some of you want to defend Michael's honor? That's wonderful! You can defend his honor in "death" while we defend his honor in life.
Until there is indisputable evidence to the contrary, I see no reason why anyone would think that he is no longer with us and yes I know that there is "evidence" that he has died, however, it's not good enough for me. Too many unusual circumstances and unanswered questions to take this "evidence" presented by the media at face value.

I choose faith and hope and love over close-mindedness, negativity and verbal abuse.

So I guess the LAPD, the FBI, the LA DA's office, the judge, etc. are all moonlighting on TMZ and People magazine therefor we should not believe them and their evidence because that would be believing media??
To ass ume that we lack hope and open minds and faith and love because we know the truth...that is ignorance and filled with the hate that is blamed on us.
Michael Jackson died...not just anyone, but Michael Jackson...to think that his death should be routine like any John Doe is ignorance as well. And the manner in which he died...how can any of it be cut and dry? But to think that this is all some joke...that is the biggest joke of all.

@Ibelieve25:

Hi Ibelieve – I'm doing fine – just filled with hate, I guess. According to some people that is. I had thought my views were quite the opposite, so I have to say that I'm surprised to be viewed as ignorant and filled with hate.
I'll have to work on that. Lol! Anyway, I hope you are doing well yourself and it's nice hearing from you! Love and Hugs, Beverly

Hi
I Really never post on here. But I just wanted to share something with you all. I hope it makes sense.

Peace Love Friendship and Unity Always Allo

The Who What & Why?

When the hands of the clock, just never seem to stop

and the dusks merging neatly twixt the dawn.

It can be a might confusing, if not a tad bemusing

when you dont really know what’s going on.

As the ticking and the tocking of the grandpa clock floor hopping

Makes a rather tempremental melo (dy)

that your if (ing) and a but (ing)

always thinking and a what (ing)

at the things in life, that just won’t simply be.

Use your creative head, to make light of them instead

you know that life can be sure dandy if you try

@REAL TALK–

It appears you suffer from selective information syndrome, a disorder that is common in this blog. I did indeed post the videos you speak of, but it was to ONE particular blogger, not the forum as an entirety. The video was intended as an educational tool to demonstrate what happens in the event when seriously mentally ill individuals do not seek treatment for their dangerous and potentially violent thinking. Perhaps you elected to forget that piece. If you have to refer back to one or two videos I posted over six months ago, that is indicative you have no current evidence to your accusations that I support "nastiness". I support Michael Jackson and his family but more importantly, his honor. I have not and will not tolerate Murray supporters and their verbose posts about love and unity, when clearly this group of individuals was divided long before Michael even died. He was a human being, not an immortal, therefore, his death was inevitable. I offer condolences to those who cannot grasp otherwise. As far as a Sybil Sally, I have no idea what that is in reference to, perhaps you can offer further explanation but since I don't even know what that is, I can assure you I have no association with that group. Take the Stance of Goliath? Those are pretty big analogies for you, aren't they? Afraid to fall? Lord Have Mercy woman, I've been standing tall and steady since June 25, 2009. Your weak attempts to instigate me to falter are in vain. The End.

" @SUZIEQ- OMG, all I can say is lmao all day. It's your neighbor's cousin's birthday/graduation/potty training award day? lol....Did Elvis the Pelvis make a surprise appearance? "

A "potty training award" day? Come on people, have some respect. Unbelievable! I hope you can live with yourselves...Grow Up and Grow some class! Pardon me, for spewing hurtful remarks but they are ill in comparison to the way you make others feel. And you know who you are. You all should be awarded the "Disrespect" Award.

Because I happen to mention that I was proud of my mom and that her birthday is coming up, I get nothing but childish remarks. And yes, it does hurt. Just remember Michael Jackson loved and adored his mother...He was even inspired to write a poem entitled "Mother"...The following is an excerpt...Whether you accept it or not, we are all Michael Jackson fans. God Bless!

"And now that I have come so far
Met with every king and czar
Encountered every color and creed
Of every passion, every greed
I go back to that starry night
With not a fear for muscle or might
You taught me how to stand and fight
For every single wrong and right
Every day without a hold
I will treasure what you've mold
I will remember every kiss
Your sweet words I'll never miss
No matter where I go from here
You're in my heart, my mother dear."

Excerpt from the poem, "Mother"
By Michael Jackson
(Published in his book, Dancing the Dream, 1992)

Hi dear friend; That makes me Happy to know that we made you mom smile, for all the Birthday Hugs, she receive from virtual friends of yours. I sorry if I brought tears to your eyes, telling you how I feel and what I do on my mom’s birthday. I know to some it may sound silly to still tell someone that you Love them, even if that are no longer here. But for me that will never change, she was my mom whom pass a very young age to me at least of 44 years old, and not only that as I mention before she was my best friend also. In all these years I still cannot call anyone else a best friend, because they cannot amont to with my mom was to me. What I really miss the most was our phone calls that lasted till early a.m. mornings , talking about everything and nothing. Someone, that you can tell secrets to and know that you will never heard about them from another, LOL and I kept her secrets also. People, could not understand how me and my mom could talk on the phone like that every day, but we did. So, you see that is a love in my heart that will never leave, and on the day of her birth, it bring me so much pleasant to look up and say I love you, never forget me. Just thinking about it now brought me joy. I do agree with you life is very precious as well as time and I try and enjoy my girls and grandkids much as I can.(beside this spoil brats every though their adults, will not let me breathe without their presents), right now me and they baby girl are having a discussion because she misunderstood my days always in Sin City. LOL She thought I will be home on the 29th (which is a no-no)instead of the 30th. Ha-ha, it seems that she cannot stand the fact that I will be out of her sight for 4 night and 5 days. Smile. Did not mean to go on and on, but when it comes to talking about my mom can’t help it. Thank you for your comment it brought a smile and a few tears to my eyes just thinking about mother(my heart)…….Love, Hugs, & Blessings to you and your family…..Keeping the Faith! My dear….Letta

Oh what a fun day it has been on the LKL bloggy today. Fun, laughter, fellowship. Good times.

@MMJ interesting to read your insights about the Informer. But I didn't think you had joined us on the LKL until mid-September which was after most if not all, of the The Informer posts. As I recall Susan mentioned that the archive blogs had been sanitized and a lot of the references to The Informer modified to save archive space ....so maybe your impressions are somewhat skewed?

@Rhonda...anytime you want to be Queen for the Day, let me know...if you would be interested in any other titles or a position at court...that also may be arranged.

@Marguerite....would you like to be a Duchess, or maybe a Countess? I would think, as Queen of the bloggy that I could confer titles on people.

@ALLO –gosh I can't scarcely remember the last time you were on the LKL blogy...interesting post. Don't quite understand it...but interesting all the same. BBL&L

To all of the rest of the blog, I mean my subjects, have a wonderful day and please blog responsibly. **wrist, wrist, elbow, elbow** doing the Royalty wave....

Seriously??!!
Irony...oh, the irony...
To post that one's views have been misconstrued...that is so familiar!
Because we speak the truth we hate, bash, and are childish, yet those who have delusions of grandeur can post whatever and it must be viewed with LOVE??
I have no hate at all in my heart...but time and time again I am accused of being filled with hate...why?? because I speak the truth...Michael Jackson died.
And that this is still a matter for some twisted debate is unbelievable, over a year later.

I am so sorry, I think I will have to pass. You see you would have to name all of my personalities along with me that I have been accused of being and that may take you some time and a couple of decrees to do. Would not want you to get writer's cramp or anything like that. So I guess I will just stay the leader of the delusional, cult, mechanical, impostors, disciples, groupies and whatever else it was that I am suppose to be in charge of.....I guess we could always role play Robin Hood and Sheriff Nottingham if you like......Instead of bows, swords, rocks and all that stuff, we can just use water balloons, super soakers, water hose and the pool. Sounds so much better......

What kind words you have shared today
Hug your mom and take care of her
Don't worry about what they have to say here
You have done what's right by her
All for L.O.V.E Is what its for

ALLO
Your words are very clear
Thank you for sharing with me

To those who are hating and bashing yet again
Don't you understand you'll never be MJ's friend
His honor you do nothing but tarnish
His Legacy you you trash and bash on here
You are not doing him any good
All you do is make him look bad
The one with the glove deserves more from you
Lack of respect is what you do
All you do is cause him harm
All you do is keep others up in arms
Go back to Mila's or Susan's room
Go somewhere where you're words are welcome
Go elsewhere than on a blog about MJ
Cause he doesn't need fans like you
To destroy his legacy
To insult his children
To hurt his fans
Move on.

Disciples of Love
Hear the call
Stand up now one and all
Bring the light to this blog here
Make the darkness disappear
I would rather be a disciple of love
Than a follower of hate and remiss
Michael needs you to hear his call
The only way to make them understand
Is to show UNITY and UNITED fronts
Do not let them cause you to frown
Do not let them get you down
The one who wears that one glove
Is the one that I do truly love
To be like him I'll strive to do
That's the biggest compliment I can do


simonsayslove   August 18th, 2010 11:48 pm ET

Mr A the time has come
To return to the ones who love you most
They need your guiding hand
To show them through to the promised land
They need your words of wisdom most
Do not let them continue to post
Without a word from you
They need to hear you are doing well
They need to know you still read this hell
Bring the light to help them out
Mr. A can you hear me shout
Michael L.O.V. E its your turn too
Bring your cheering here to do
Help bring love back to this blog
Time to get rid of all the slogs
**mj** change your name back
Bring out Scarecrow1958 too
Bring them out, now what will they do

@Rhonda
My friend
I feel your pain
Do not accept their acid rain
You are much better than this
You are one very strong miss
Hugs to you
I love you more
Do not let anyone
RUN you out the door
Your friend you miss will come back home
Do not let your faith go astray
Mr. A will stop by again someday.

Rest assured that the red carpet will always be there for you should you choose to come to any and all court functions. We appreciate your consideration. We appreciate that no trees were sacrificed by the issuance of this Royal Decree. Your wise counsel at court is always welcome as well.

Please keep your head up. Try not to let the negativity bring you down. I know you have so much more strength than you know. I feel it. I see it all the time in you all. Don't ever let anyone try to fool you into thinking love, compassion and treating people kindly is wrong. I know it seems some here are trying to punish people for kindness. Makes no sense! Sending love, strength, hugs and blessings to you all my friends


Rhonda   August 19th, 2010 12:18 am ET

@Lori,

Thank You so much. But it is now called The House Of Love by some or The House of not Love and I am sure a few other things. I will of course attend your court with my merry pranksters and please feel free to knight them or make them princess's if they so wish to do so. I am sure the will be honored.

I am truly heart broken that things have gotten worse instead of better. I have never came on this blog under any of Michael's and tried pushing alive or dead on anyone and I would never. I do not and will not try and change other people's opinions. It is their opinion and that have that right. I am however hurt that people think I would post under someone else's name or impostor. It just amazes me how people can turn on a dime. Freedom to say whatever you want is your freedom, but to call people ignorant, delusional, being in a cult or whatever is just plain hateful. I don't understand why it has come to this. I have kept my belief at a bay here on the blog and I don't come on here talking about Michael being alive or dead. I post things that I feel from my heart and that is all. If you don't like what I post, then just look over my name and then you want see what I have typed.

Life is like a canvass
Lines drawn, pictures formed
Depicting the paths you take
There are no straight lines in life

But if you try and paint a line on a mirror
That part of your reflection is forever gone
Those lines and pictures will be
Forever etched in your reflection
Showing others only a part of you.

How many lines will be drawn in your lifetime?


Kat   August 19th, 2010 1:21 am ET

I'm sorry but what is wrong with wishing someone a happy birthday? I find that gesture very endearing. If I am not mistaken,on these very blogs, a new mother received many congratulations for a "birthday" as well. This, I also find very endearing. Differences aside, yet a celebration is a celecration, and of course, should be acknowledged. Expressing kindness should never be laughed at or made fun of. It should be promoted. I am saddened we have reached the opposite again...no make that angry. I am astound at the comments here.

No wonder a lot have left.....................
I, for one, will not leave, but feel those who think these blogs are to be laughed at and made fun of, including the people who are posting, should maybe rethink if they want to really be here for the right reasons. It’s a free world, we can express what we please, but there are places to express ones dissatisfaction with life…not here.

@ Mr A

Hi there..hope all is well with you and the family. I wish things were different and worked out the way you had planned it, or were intending. It did not, so I hope we will see you soon…sometime. Miss ya heaps.
Love to you and yours.

To all those who are very dear to me…you know who you are.
Please stand tall and strong…”love is the answer, love is the way”. As long as we have love, we have hope and faith. Good starts within us. Don’t let the nastiness and bashing get you down. United we will walk together. United we will achieve much..not divided.

Love to everyone.

If you think you're free, there's no escape possible.
– Ram Dass

The freedom we are looking for is the freedom to be ourselves, to express ourselves. But if we look at our lives we will see that most of the time we do things just to please others ... The worst part is that most of us are not even aware that we are not free.
-Don Miguel Ruiz

Most of us are prisoners of habit, and don't even notice that we do the same things, think the same things, want the same things each day – mostly without conscious thought.

Today, examine your beliefs, your actions, your wants, to determine whether they still represent your highest purpose.

It was delightful to see some of the originals here. As Bloggy Queen, I continue to hope that we can all be here on 29 August to celebrate Michael Jackson as each and every one of us sees fit so to do.

@Marguerite, I think I shall make you Duchess of Determination....because you have not wavered from your personal convictions since you started posting here. Let me know if this title is OK with you, because we can come up with another if you so desire.

@Lois48 the position of Chancelor of Law and Order is available. Please let us know if you would consider accepting. 🙂

@Heidi... the position of Examiner of the Exchequer is available. Please let us know if you would consider accepting. 🙂

Maybe we should gather all the books people wrote about MJ and do that Weird, Bad and Ugly theme lol!


Letta(IbeLieve)   August 19th, 2010 4:12 am ET

@Rhonda
Good Morning my friend; Sorry that you feel heartbroken about what is being said about you being many different people. It is easy for me to say overlook these nasty posting about who or whom they think you may be. This is the type of uproar that they enjoy, so I ask you not to play into their hands. You know exactly who you are and what name that you post comments in, also I’ve personally never read a comment where you try to get someone to think otherwise of Michael being dead or alive. We are here to post what you consider to be true and I’m pretty sure that those that goes to your room has a mind of their own, and does not need you to think for them. Name as far as being called ignorant, delusional, or belonging to some type of cult, well if that the case it’s the L.O.V.E cult, and actually my title use to be all those name except ignorant. But, I will agree with you on this if someone does not like what a person post simply pass over and keep it moving, there is no need to take what someone say and big a big deal out of it. I try at times to avoid negative postings, it can be hard sometimes but I do. I hope that you remain posting on the blog and do not let what others say may stop you from being here. I for one like reading what you post…..Love, Hugs, & Blessings to you and your family…..Letta
@Lois48
Good Morning; Love your post last @1:11 am that said a lot. Thank you for sharing…Love, Hugs, & Blessings to you and family…..Letta
@Kat
Hello my friend; I read your post @1:21 am, and my friend I could not had said it any better. Thank you from posting about the “birthday” congratulation. You are right when all of the bloggers who normally post to her, was giving out congratulations, virtual baby shower and so forth, and no one have a problem with that on the blogs. But when we wish a Happy Birthday to someone mom, it became a joke, and that was totally rude and very disrespectful. So, normally I would say not to get angry, but when you really look at what was done it is enough to make you say things, one should not post on a blog, (especially me), trying to keep it at lib. So, I’ll like to thank you for bring that point out in your post
Hope that you also get a post from your friend soon as@ well, good luck.…..Love, Hugs, & Blessings to you and your family…..Letta

"WILL"
I choose my good based on spiritual understanding.
There may be times when I wonder if I am truly doing God's will; if what I want to do serves the highest good. In those moments I know that guidance is available to me. I pause and quiet my thoughts. Closing my eyes, I allow my breath to become my focus. My inhale carries wisdom through my heart to every cell of my body. My exhale releases confusion and doubt from my mind. I experience the stillness of the presence of God and gently discern my next step.
I make choices knowing that my desire is to do God's work. I follow the guidance and understanding that I am given. I am an expression of God's love, peace, harmony and abundance in the world.
For it is God who is at work in you, enabling you both to will and to work for his good pleasure.–Philippians 2:13

Love, Hugs, & Blessings to you ALL......Have a Great Day ........Letta

@LORI-

Yes, that is true, I did not start posting until September BUT I've been reading since late June of 2009, so of course I remember the Informer. (so I guess that makes me an "original reader"). Unskewed. From your posts I gather you believe this is the original Informer? I'm surprised that you support his mockery to Michael (i.e..- suggesting Michael was at his own Memorial, an April surprise, etc) That just did not seem like you at all, you always seemed to support the evidence and that Michael was deceased- maybe I got that wrong (?) i.e. "Dr. Quack is Wack" assuming that was implying Dr. Death is a wack job for killing Michael- that is what I only concluded what your tag line meant.
Additionally, most of the "original bloggers", did not start posting until July. There were only 2 bloggers from this forum that blogged here on June 25th/26th 2009. One no longers blogs here and one changed views. So, in all reality, from this forum, there are only two "original bloggers"
I'm not sure what spectrum the term "original" is measured on, but I'm an original fan so to me that's worth more then the blogger title.

Beverly - Chicago   August 19th, 2010 4:52 am ET

Just to set the record straight, I don't want to be viewed as trying to change anyone's mind as whether Michael is alive or dead or "pushing alive or dead" onto anyone. I was just stating my own views and what I feel has happened. I've said it enough times by now anyway, so I don't intend to ever repeat it again since it appears that you're not allowed to have an opinion on this blog unless you think he's dead anyway.

As far as being filled with hate or being ignorant I know quite well that I am neither. I am however deeply saddened by the situation here on this blog.


babycarie   August 19th, 2010 7:34 am ET

If you all think we will ever leave Michael think again!!
I LOVE how you all 'believe' you have the right to be here yet continually tell others to leave...why?? so you all can post nothings all day without being interrupted...with various names and without regard to the topic or Michael Jackson?? Sorry...we will NEVER leave our Michael...because these blogs are not for you...
they are for Michael Jackson!! And poems are nice coming from This Is It, but this is a BLOG!! Not a poetry chat roll.

And I recall being 'bashed' about posting too much personal information and that as just fine and dandy...yet when this is done to you all, how horrible. A personal note here and there is understandable, but nothing but personal notes with total disregard to Michael Jackson is a chat roll, so maybe YOU all should consider going somewhere more appropriate to YOUR needs.

I have never seen such a twisted double standards way of approaching things as I have seen on these bloggys...and from many who are my mom's age.


babycarie   August 19th, 2010 7:51 am ET

Susan, MMJ, Suzie Q
The eerie silence is deafening...there has been nothing about Murray or the trial. On the previous blog I posted regarding Murray 'shots' with his family...makes me sick to think anyone here could support that man in any way. It wont matter what happens because in the end Murray will most likely receive 1-2 years IF convicted...and if he is found not guilty (God forbid) he will write books and do his sick documentary...it really is heartbreaking that something like this can happen and the guilty go free to swim at the beach while Michael died at age 50 and never gets to watch his children grow into adulthood.

Susan...does a wrongful death suit have to be won in order to keep Murray from capitalizing off Michael's death or can something be proposed at this trial?? Or perhaps Murray signed some confidentiality agreement when he 'worked' for Michael that would keep him from talking/writing his 'troot'??

Michael Jackson died...was killed...and it is really tragic and heartbreaking to think Murray will walk away with license in tact, and spend many more years going to the beach. Michael's drug issues aside, the pure negligence of this 'doctor' is disgusting. And that the other enabling doctors are off the hook for their part speaks volumes to how this will never stop. Eminem said he can get whatever he wants from doctors...how about a gun?? Difference??
RIP Sweet Michael

Hi Lori:
Thank you for your kind words about my research skills. When I viewed the Michael Jackson archives, I noticed the number count had decreased considerable. I didn't check TI's comments in particular. I did make copies of TI's comments though for reference. Yes, at that time a few of us were trying to guess who TI was. I did think it was Taj. I don't feel the TI posting now is the same person. But, like you said, who knows. There have been so many people impostering others since Oct.

When you posted to TI referencing the 2nd Amendment, did you mean the 1st Amendment? The 2nd Amendment is the right to bear arms.

It would be nice to have Gene back. I believe he joined DN on another site. Enjoy your day Lori.

Writer of "Butterflies" recalls meeting Michael Jackson
by: Marsha Ambrosius

I'm nervous. Excited but very nervous. It's a mild afternoon in New York City and I'm walking towards The Hit Factory studio to meet Mr.Michael Jackson. Today would be the first day recording his vocals on a song I wrote. A song called "Butterflies". Oblivious to pedestrians and loud traffic. Tuning out any sound interrupting my inner voice screaming "Calm down!!! You deserve this!!! You're worth this!!!".

I walk through the glass doors leading to a front desk. I was told to give my full name and ID was required. As expected, I was. A doorman walked me to the key operated elevator and was escorted to his floor. "Michael Jackson & Friends" was written on a white piece of A4 paper taped to the door. I was led inside.

My heart is literally beating out of my chest and I'm two breaths short of a panic attack. All I recall is the sound of a grand piano playing a harmonic scale, someone singing and seeing who that voice was coming from eye to eye.

It was him. The King of Pop. The Greatest Entertainer of All Time. From the live room, he smiled at me and threw up a peace sign. Continued to warm up his vocals as I stood in awe and then made his way to me. He said my first name and gave me a welcoming embrace. "Thank you," he said.
No Michael! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I learned too much from Michael Jackson. Having the opportunity to be both observer and writer/vocal producer was too rich to put into so many words. Watching his breathing techniques, the vocal scales he would go over and over again before even stepping in the vocal booth at the studio every day we recorded. He was perfect. He was just so giving. He gave his all.

That would be the same thing that inspires me about him. He cared so much for everything and everyone. He gave his all in anything he did. His legacy is left for us to study. It’s evidence of how GREAT he was and always will be.

I wrote “I Want You To Stay” for Michael Jackson a few weeks before he passed away. I was going to be in London the week the tour started. A few weeks prior to the tour, I flew over to London and during my stay, I wrote it in my mother’s house on her piano.

I did a studio version which will be on Late Nights & Early Mornings – Michael Jackson’s influence can be seen and heard in not just the music I make but in most artists. I can’t help it! No Pun. Why not strive for greatness?

Why??
Why was this beautiful human being allowed to die without anyone seeing his pain?? How did those around him not see his fragility? It's obvious in the clips from TII...he was struggling just to be...Jen Batten believes he never finished an entire song thus the different clothes within the same song. The final photo Janet showed...such inner sadness...so frail.
Why??? Why did the 'interventions' fail? Interventions for family should not fail.
Why???

Joe and Katherine Jackson are calling it quits after more than 60 years of marriage, a longtime family friend has revealed to the Daily Star.

Katherine, 80, has filed for divorce after Joe — blamed his estranged wife for Michael’s death in an interview with a British tabloid.

Speaking about the months leading up to the Michael’s death, outspoken Joe, 81, said of his wife: “I begged her to go over and stay with him, but she insisted he needed his privacy.”

The betrayal is said to be the last straw for Katherine, who won sole custody of MJ’s children — Prince Michael, 13, Paris, 12, and Blanket, eight — following the singer’s death on June 25, 2009.

“After 60 years, she’s had enough. She’s been humiliated by him for too long. She’s absolutely livid. This time there’s no going back.”

The Jacksons — the stage parents of nine — separated in 1999. Katherine resides at the family compound in Encino, California while Joe lives in an apartment just off the Las Vegas strip. Until now Katherine has refused to consider divorce because “as a Jehovah’s Witness, she believes that a marriage is for ever,” said the insider.


Susan62509   August 19th, 2010 11:21 am ET

Michael Jackson's parents Katherine and Joe are to divorce after 60 years of marriage. Katherine is said to have been annoyed at Joe's conduct since the self-styled King Of Pop's death in June 2009. Although the couple have not lived together for some time, Katherine refused to divorce Joe earlier due to her beliefs as a Jehovah's Witness. However, reports of Joe attending seedy joints on Sunset Strip recently and his repeated outbursts to the press about the Jackson family's private life are said to have been the last straw for her.

@Susan...I just don't know what to say about a possible pending dissolution action re: Katherine & Joe. Apparently many tabloids are reporting it. I wonder if, should this info actually be true, if there will be an announcement from their attorneys or spokespersons. Of course, it is a long road from filing a petition for dissolution to an actual decree. It isn't a divorce until the judge sings off on it. I suppose they don't have a pre-nup in place, although I wonder if they worked out a potential settlement agreement when they considered divorcing previously. 60+ years....don't see many marriages of the length any more these days. Maybe they will put their message in the Saturday Sun....the UK tabs often seem to have breaking Jackson news. I guess TMZ missed the scoop on this one. They must not have had a crew at the court clerk's office.

@Maria Copelli, you are such a sweet compassionate blogger. Invariably kind...a trait so often overlooked and undervalued by others...to paraphrase that other great wizard, Dumbledore. I think I shall confer the title of Countess of Courtesy & Kidness upon you.

@The Informer....will you be returning today to offer vague and intriguing comments?

Apparently the LKL blog mods approve my humor and get the joke as my comments continue to post. **wink, wink** I love being the bloggy Queen, something I didn't even aspire too until the title was bestowed upon me...

I think I will invite the Queens Counsel to high tea....

lois48   August 19th, 2010 4:50 pm ET

@Lori – I mentioned many blogs before that the only way Joe could get any money from the Estate is to start divorce proceedings, as all property, assets that form part of the marriage will no doubt have to be split, so I wonder why Katherine started the proceedings instead? If Joe was after the moolah only, why is Katherine starting the proceedings and not him, unless of course Joe is really broke, which I highly doubt. I find it strange that they split after the trial, I thought they were separated for a lot longer than that.

Something weird is going on.... too strange eh, but then this whole "scenario" has been out there >>>>>>🙂 Probably just another BS story from those rag newspapers.

To be classed as an "original blogger", I take it that you would have had to be blogging almost continously from day one, ie. June 25th, 2009 (the day of Michael Jackson's death).

I have been blogging here since say September 2009, so maybe I can't be classed as an original blogger????..........:-(

Lori - Justice for Michael   August 19th, 2010 10:12 pm ET

@Lois, hello Chancellor of Law & Order. Well let us consider this with regards to a possible dissolution. Mrs. Katherine's inheritance from Michael is a life estate. It may also have been characterized as her seperate property and not as a marital asset...which of course means, it belongs solely to her and would not be tabulated as part of the marital estate. Since Michael specifically excluded his father from his estate plan, it would seem logical that any thing he bequethed to his mother would be labeled seperate property in the event of a dissolution. A savy estate planning attorney would have most likely drafted the documents with that in mind. A lot of the property division is going to depend on what, if any, agreements are in place between Joseph and Katherine that would speak to a division of assets. This of course could possibly get messy if indeed they are planning to inititate dissolution proceedings. Questions to consider....who holds clear title to the Encino residence? Is it part of MJ's estate? The who owns what could take quite sometime to figure out. The financial web is quite tangled I think. Asset & Liability discovery is going to be some poor paralegal's worst nightmare. This is an elderly couple with a long term marriage, who have the means to maintain seperate households, apparently. They have a huge family, so even if a divorce happens, they will always be connected that way. There are so many other things going on right now, why add another stress? I don't know if the gain is worth the pain on this one. We might need to conference in Gloria...she knows quite a lot about high asset dissolution cases.

Of course you are a member of the High Counsel of Hags, but would you like a royal title? I was thinking something along the lines of Countess of Casino Activities or Duchess of the Gridiron. Just let me know and its yours! Oh the Ambassadorship to Ed Hardy is also something you might consider. Posts in the Diplomatic Corp are always interesting.

@Letta..thank you. I never aspired to be Queen....the title was foisted upon me....but now that I have it, I find I rather enjoy it.

@Pixie Dust
I’m so sorry to hear what is happening in BC, right now. I will keep you and everyone in my prayers. I pray for also that BC, will be bless with rain soon. Is the fires close to where you reside? Have there been any homes lost? I truly hope that people are safe, from the fires. This is so depressing to hear that something like that is happening there because of the heat. Please keep me in form of what is going on, and I pray that you and your sons are safe….Love, hugs, & Blessings to you and your family…..Letta

Hi MMJ: You said:
"Attitude reflects leadership". That speaks volumes for people who hide behind multiple identities. Including those who pose as Michael Jackson and the people who praise this ludacris behavior."

MMJ:
I interpret multiple identity usage as people who proclaim one stance on this blog but aren't 100% behind their proclamations, so they use another identity to switch to another personality, with the end result to not losing popularity or unveiling hypocrasy. Then there are those that come here with multiple identities just to bait and hook people for their personal laughter and ludicrous behavior.

Your statement was very clear and understandable. There are many repetitive terms used on this blog to create rapper lyics for those inclined to dance and sing so thank you MMJ for your subliminal message discovered by some. You always bring fun to this blog.


Susan62509   August 20th, 2010 3:11 am ET

Hello Babycarie:
I hope you are planning a relaxing weekend. Thank you for sharing the "Butterflies" article with all of us. It's pure joy to read others opinions of Michael.

MJ's protocol was for everyone around him to sign confidential agreements so I would imagine CM had to sign one also. The duration of the agreement would be guessable.

Some states have incorporated laws that prisoners have to wait so many years before they are allowed to publish books, movies, etc. It's something like 8 or 10 years in some states.

If Joe's wrongful death suit goes forward against CM, Joe can sue for emotional duress, loss of compatibility/son, punitive damages, etc. If Joe wins the death suit it will be for money. Any income via tax returns, stock, videos, books will be garnished with all profits going to Joe. This will continue in CM's life until the court award is paid off. However, if CM leaves the country, then Joe is up the creek. This video company is based overseas to my understanding. Since a wrongful death suit is a civil court trial instead of a criminal court trial, the U.S. authorities aren't going to chase CM down if he leaves the U.S.

If Joe and Katherine are getting a divorce, they will try to keep it a secret, IMO. California is a joint property state, so they will split up their assets. The Encino house is owned by MJ's Estate. The Encino house was in foreclosure July 2009, so the Estate picked up the tab. We always have to remember that the Estate is Michael. The Encino house is not joint property. Joe & Katherine's multimillion dollar bankruptsy concluded in June this year. Joe cannot touch Katherine's allowance. If Katherine decides to give him some in their settlement, she can do that, but once she passes away that money will stop for Joe.

Hi Jacqueline/nl:
It's wonderful to see you again. No problem in spelling my name. I don't mind.

Hi SuzieQ:
What a great spirit you have in fighting for MJ's justice. We'll soon begin receiving hints of more information as this year progresses. I hope we don't have to wait a full year before the actual trial begins like in Anna Nichole's case. Have a funfilled relaxing weekend SuzieQ.

@Pixie Dust
@LoveConquersAll
Happy Friday; all. Today’s daily word is a great one, in my opinion. Its talk’s about strength. IMO, it say a mouth full to me. I do hope that all of you will enjoy reading this, it gave me more strength, just taking all in. Wow, Mary, I hope that you take in this to work, know that you are overwork sometimes. This is something that will give you the strength you need. Interested and see we all of you think about this one. Smiles. Until, that time, read on. It is called –
“Strength”
Strength stands as a mountain and flows like a river within me.
I may sometimes feel as though too much has been asked of me or that too much has been taken from me. At such times, I pray and feel the strength of God within me.
Nothing too great can be asked of me, for I am a mountain of strength. I stand tall and serene. I am a powerful force for God's will. Nothing that is of God, such as hope, courage and faith, can be taken from me. I am a river of faith. I am empowered by love, yet able to yield when nonresistance is the best course of action. I set my course with faith and love.
As I affirm these prayers, I become calm and see new possibilities for life ahead of me. I am a mountain of strength, a river of faith. I stand in serenity and flow in love.
No distrust made him waver concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God.–Romans 4:20
Love, Hugs, & Many, Many Blessing to you and your family........Letta

babycarie   August 20th, 2010 8:05 am ET

Sad to yearn for some senseless blogger's opinions to draw conclusions...especially when seeing the mentality of said blogger! I prefer DN, Susan...any rational informative data driven factual truth...but then, that's just me.
And Murray's admitting that he did in fact administered various drugs to Michael...that is proof enough that he is the one responsible for killing Michael...no trial or jury or run on the beach will change that.

MMJ
The 'Star Witness' is Michael...and he is dead...you are so correct. If only we could have his 'troot' we would be able to find some sense of closure to Michael's senseless death. And it is almost as tragic that his death is mocked like some circus joke. This was not some ordinary Joe, it was MIchael Jackson, so is it surprising there are many things that are questionable? And the manner in which he died...not an ordinary death to say the least. But one thing I know for sure based on factual info not media heresay...Michael Jackson died June 25, 2009, and it was senseless and tragic and sad and his children will never hug and play with their daddy ever again.

Suzie Q!
The attention seeking has flown to new heights!! You really have created a bloggy BO!!!! The self absorbed 'look at me' with disregard to Michael has gotten way out of control...but it's okay...for some.
'Fence sitters'...we call them crows...are usually the ones in much need of outward expressions of attention...and will caw and caw very loud to get it!!! 🙂
Yes, Murray is guilty, an he will have to live with that for the rest of his days on this earth and will have to face his judgement after...and if one believes in hell/purgatory, that is where he will go! My fear is he will profit from this killing...that would be the biggest injustice of all, coupled with his being alive to play on the beach and continue to neglect his children while MJ3 grow up without their daddy not due to neglect, but because Murray took him from them. It really boggles the mind that any of this actually happened over a year ago. Michael should be here to celebrate his 52nd birthday...but instead his family will go to FL to mourn...why?
RIP Sweet Michael

We may not be 'originals' or old, but we are here for Michael Jackson...and we will continue to be his voice!!!!
We have the truth!
We will always be there!!
Love to you my groupie Suzie Q!!!!!

Michael Jackson’s Long Time Manager Triumphs in Court Case

By: Roger Friedman in Celebrity, Music // August 19th, 2010 at 6:32 PM EDT

Flash: I just heard from Los Angeles that Michael Jackson’s long time manager, Frank Di Leo, has triumphed in court against a crazy claim from a concert promoter.

The word is that AllGood Entertainment’s assertion that DiLeo had agreed to let Michael Jackson tour for them, and for Patrick Alloco and Leonard Rowe to be involved in Michael’s London concerts, was found without basis by a judge. AllGood’s claims, I’m told, were thrown out. We’ll get more details in a little while.

Alloco, Leonard Rowe, Joseph Jackson were among those who banded together to try and derail Michael’s deal with AEG Live and get “control” of the concerts.

LoveConquersAll   August 20th, 2010 12:35 pm ET

@ Rhonda ~ My post to you last night, for some reason, kept disappearing. I assume it was because I was talking about the most enjoyable time I spent with my mom yesterday. I took her to lunch and we did some shopping...Always fun!!! Sort of a pre-party celebration because she has no idea what is in store for her on Sunday.

Miss you too...One of these nights, I will visit. I just want to make sure I have enough energy left in me to keep up with the conversations...I just don't want to be rude and ignore anyone. That first visit to your place, I must confess was actually my first time participating in a chat room so I was a bit slow and behind. I apologize for that. But I love and adore all the special friends, like you, that I have made. Love to you always!


LoveConquersAll   August 20th, 2010 12:50 pm ET

@ Kat
@ "Pixie Dust" ~ Love and sincere thoughts I send to you both of you!!!

@ ibelieve25 ~ Laughter is always good for the soul so never lose your sense of humor, my dear! Sitting down over a cup of tea sounds delightful. Something I definitely look forward to. Love to you always!

@ Letta ~ My dear friend...Never feel like you bore me. You can talk to me about anything and everything and I am thrilled to listen and read. Your messages are so inspiring and filled with love and devotion. I treasure you and all of the virtual friendships I have made on this blog. Many blessings to you and your family!

I appreciate everyone's kindness towards my mother and her birthday. I would treat all of you with the very same kindness, believe me. Yet I do not want to bore anyone and keep talking about birthdays or my mom, even though family is so important. That goes without saying. But I do take into consideration that this blog is about Michael Jackson and I hope that no one feels as though I have taking the spotlight off of him because, in my heart, I would never do such a thing. I love Michael too much. I just hope you understand that.

I wish everyone a wonderful day!
Practice tolerance, love, patience, understanding and respect.

MourningMJ   August 20th, 2010 2:03 pm ET

Thank you moderators for making the self-loathing wait for over 12 hours to see who fed their egos. Someone's ego gained about 50 pounds in the blog yesterday and it will keep gaining and gaining until it explodes. That is 22.6796 kgs British Royal pounds. No more room for Michael Jackson fans it looks like, just shoving the fans back into the waiting area making room for the royal flunkies.

There are many who love you Michael, who won't fail you or continue to support mockery. Michael & his family will always have my full support- and it won't be split with those who support mockery or believe Michael was a fraud or a liar.

IHMJ xoxo

You were not alone, Michael


CuriousCat   August 20th, 2010 3:21 pm ET

Michael's life was in danger, he said it many times himself as well as his family members confirmed it too.

If he had to lie to save his life or the lives of his children, would he still be a "fraud" and a "liar" and someone you would turn your back on ??

If his family lied to save his life, would you turn your back on them ??

"Family" will do anything for each other, lie, cheat, steal, anything !!!

That's what family does, anyone who does not know this has my sympathy because they do not know the "true meaning of family"


Marguerite   August 20th, 2010 3:56 pm ET

MMJ- Hi, how are you doing my friend? It don't hurt to have a sense of humor here on the blogs. Because between now and the court hearing it could get a wee bit crazy on here. Besides i would rather laugh than say a few choice words.rofl Yep, a sense of humor is a must on here. Take care and love to you and yours.

Love to all.

Good evening everyone
I wonder if this post will be accepted, I already tried this week but it didn't work.

Babycarie
I was wondering how you are doing🙂
Your request about D.N. – I am still in contact with her, I will let her know that you are waiting for her.

The next court hearing is just around the corner. What's your feeling about it?

Stay Strong and Positive. Celebrate the Message!!!!!!

Sak Pa Kontan, Anbake!!


Marguerite   August 20th, 2010 4:32 pm ET

MMJ- Let's see there are some which you are included in, that call yourselves HAGS. Quite a few didn't care for this but it stayed, which is fine and dandy. So what is the problem with some of us having Royal titles? The Royal titles has to do with what a person believes or the characteristics of a person. Michael is the King of Pop and now here on the blogs he has a Royal house. It is no different than being a HAG. To each their own.

Now as for what each of us believe, some say Michael is Alive and others say he is dead. Again to each their own. When everything is said and done, we (all of us) will know the truth but only at that time it is all said and done. Any way you look at it, there is going to be some fancy footwork, back pedaling, change of direction by one of the groups when it is all said and done, when the truth is known by everyone all over the world. So why don't everyone just keep on believing what ever it is you believe. I will be honest and admit I did have a problem. But it is not with those that believe Michael is dead or Michael is Alive. It is with the ones that don't state point blank what they believe. But that is their right, so I got over it.lol There is a lot to talk about and discuss without rehashing who believes what. Love to you.

babycarie   August 20th, 2010 5:29 pm ET

You are beautiful!
And...
I LOVE MICHAEL JACKSON!!!
He is the ONLY royalty here!!!
Love to the King of Pop!!!!!!
Rest in peace sweet Michael!!!
We true fans will always be there,,,and you will always be in our hearts!!!!!

babycarie   August 20th, 2010 5:33 pm ET

by Maya Angelou

On June the twenty fifth '09
We know that Michael's body died.
I wonder of his spirit though
How much of it was left inside.

Though "King of Pop" to all the world,
A lonely man he seemed to be.
His wealth and fame were obvious.
The emptiness we could not see.

He tried to fill the void inside
With things he bought and carnal thrills;
But when he found these meaningless
He tried to fill the void with pills.

I never worhipped at his feet.
I never sang or danced his songs.
When the official viewing starts
I will not be among the throngs.

Still Michael will join Elvis in
A life view with a simple theme.
Both men are star examples of
How self-destructive is "The Dream".


babycarie   August 20th, 2010 5:47 pm ET

Katherine will spend yet another day missing and mourning her beloved son. My mom knows how she feels.
Bless them both and to Ryan White's mom and all mothers who have lost a child.
Gone too soon.


SuzieQ   August 20th, 2010 6:03 pm ET

I am sorry Carie, Susan and MMJ. I know I am guilty of contributing to the distractions on this blog. I see your efforts to bring the discussion back to the important topic at hand, Michael Jackson, and I do appreciate it. With MJ's birthday coming up, and the trial starting soon, there will be much more to discuss and I look forward to reading your posts. In the meantime, I'll be taking a short break from the blog – at work, we call this a "mental health day" lol... I look forward to discuss serious topics with you and learn from your wealth of knowledge.

Carie, have you read Katherine's book? It is wonderful!

Have a wonderful weekend!

When I was very young, most of my childhood heroes wore capes, flew through the air, or picked up buildings with one arm. They were spectacular and got a lot of attention. But as I grew, my heroes changed, so that now I can honestly say that anyone who does anything to help a child is a hero to me.

babycarie   August 20th, 2010 6:21 pm ET

Many people simply refuse to believe that Michael Jackson did not want to turn himself white. Medialoid, especially, accused him of trying to deny his race. They pointed to the protective umbrella and mask that Vitiligo forced him to use as evidence of his growing “eccentricity.”

Michael Jackson had Lupus, an autoimmune disease. He also had Vitiligo, a skin disorder that is commonly associated with Lupus.

After years of fighting his Vitiligo and covering it up with various cosmetics, Michael chose the final solution, what many people elect to do when the disease escalates to advanced stages. This procedure is called Depigmentation. Depigmentation removes the remaining pigment so all of the skin is one tone. Depigmentation results in extreme sensitivity to the sun and increased risk of various forms of skin cancer.

Because of reduced immunity and his susceptibility to sun related complications, Michael kept his skin covered, wore face masks, and used umbrellas to protect his health.

I do hope mom enjoyed her time shopping and her lunch. You will have to let me know how the big surprise is when it happens. I am sure she will be overjoyed. Do not worry about the birthday wishes to mom, because here in about a week we will be wishing Michael birthday wishes as well. You did just fine in the chat room last time you were there and don't apologize for not being as fast as others. It does take some time to get use too. But you will get it and if we move to fast just let us know and we can slow it down. Miss you more..

For those who still have doubts about what really happened to Michael ...
......................
[...] Degrading themes are often used to try to prevent people from coming forward and psychiatry is often used as a threat in the sense of building false profiles.

Degrading Themes: The Pedophilia Weapon

Pedophilia is one of the most hated things in our society and because of this it can be used as a weapon.

Being falsely accused or labeled of being a pedophile has very serious consequences for the victims of this phenomenon or use of pedophilia as a weapon. Even when the accusations or label are disproved at a later time the label or smear can stick.

Although the accusations are false the desired effects on the victim are usually high levels of stress, anxiety, and fear which is a part of the pedophilia weapon. Stress, anxiety, and fear being another form of weapon with serious effects on the body.

Degrading Themes: Attack Pattern to Put the Victim on the Psychological Defensive

Degrading themes can be used to put a person or victim on the defensive or psychological defensive. Some example of using degrading themes is to make insinuations that the victim is a criminal or a pedophile.

An example of an attack pattern used in psychological harassment or psychological warfare is:

• Making insinuations that the victim is a criminal or pedophile to put the victim on the defensive.
• Followed by threats to induce the fight-or-flight response or to induce fear.

.............................

Reminds you of something? It hopefully does ....

Take care!

@Gosh I tried to post some responses to some folks, but they didn't go through...sorry about that. I wasn't ignoring y'all. Really make me wonder what is Ok to be said or not. I can't figure it out.

Lori-Justice for Michael- Some things they want posted and some they don't. So I am just sitting back reading and watching. Life is not boring here. Part of me is dreading Monday. Because it could get a wee bit crazy here and emotions will be running wild.

Love to all.

Jessie from Auckland, NZ,Yes we sure could use some of your winter rains.This is not normal weather here.we usually get our fair shake of rain during the summer months.Just think in other parts of the world they are having floods.Take care Jessie, (smiles) to you.

@SUSAN, BABYCARIE SUZIEQ

I'm posting you it's not going through. Let me remove some key words and repost. Stay Patient please!


MourningMJ   August 20th, 2010 11:13 pm ET

Dear LKL Moderators-
I know your job is difficult as I develop a quick migraine reading most of these posts. I'm sure you have back up bottles of Excedrin in your desk drawers. However, my post is completely appropriate. I eliminated the words in which I thought was preventing my blog to be posted. Oh please, I ask you- please post this. Michael was not a joke, but a human being~~ Thank you.

@SUSAN- RE: 2:00 a.m. Susan, thank you for understanding what was an obvious simple comment. You are brilliant for interpreting so that it may be broken down on a level that requires fewer skills in thinking and processing. Those who entertain and support mockers, false identifies and phantom Michael Jackson fans, clearly have ulterior motives other than expressing what they feel about Michael. I would think that one would be interested in support, rather than vomiting on the blog and making it about themselves instead of Michael. Well, again, it’s the albino fly analogy. lol. Susan, thank you for bringing relevance, fulcrum and your ongoing research and education to this forum.

@BABYCARIE- BC, Yes indeed the "Star Witness" is deceased but his autopsy results speak volumes including the plenitudinous amount of valid evidence, not clues, that drowned the crime scene. I will stay optimistic that the DA can support that Michael's death was indeed fueled by desperation at the hands of a greedy and conscienceless man, therefore, hoping a trial will proceed.

@SUZIEQ- OMG, lol Suzie! I would love some legal advice; perhaps the internet search button will shed some light on us. That seems to be the theme in here- cut copy and paste. Perhaps I can search "original" as well, I mean, I did "originally" hear the news on June 25, 2009 and because we didn't come running to the blog on that day I suppose my admiration for Michael is less qualified or important. I'm an original fan, and to me, that is worth more than a blogger title for crying out loud. Until the death hoax sites were shut down in 10/2009 and word got out that this blog was open, the world original was irrelevant. Maybe the Info-mah can shed some light on that one. Well, off to make an original dinner for my original family! Hope you all have a wonderful original evening!

Yes, we need to have a calm and peaceful weekend, because come Monday, there will be so much upsets and probably bashing as well. There, is probably going to be some disagreements among the bloggers. So I subjects that we have plenty of laughs and kindness to one another because the upcoming week no one will know what to expect…..Love, Hugs, & Blessings to you both and your families.. ...Letta

Peace out girlfriend! ♥


Marguerite   August 21st, 2010 12:29 am ET

Letta- I agree with everything you say. What some people seem to forget is Michael loved to joke around, laugh, let the child in him out. Yes he has his serious side, but he also loved to have fun. Love, hugs and blessings to you and yours.

cris- Where are you sweetie? Hope you are alright. Miss you and hope to see you soon on the blogs. I love you.

Michael L.O.V.E.-- Hi, hope you are alright. I love you.

Love to all.

by Maya Angelou

On June the twenty fifth '09
We know that Michael's body died.
I wonder of his spirit though
How much of it was left inside.

Though "King of Pop" to all the world,
A lonely man he seemed to be.
His wealth and fame were obvious.
The emptiness we could not see.

He tried to fill the void inside
With things he bought and carnal thrills;
But when he found these meaningless
He tried to fill the void with pills.

I never worhipped at his feet.
I never sang or danced his songs.
When the official viewing starts
I will not be among the throngs.

Still Michael will join Elvis in
A life view with a simple theme.
Both men are star examples of
How self-destructive is "The Dream".
------------------
Made me quite sad reading this and is food for thought. One thing I know though, is no-one can ever take their titles away from them and for the human beings they were.

Rhonda September 1st, 2009 12:23 am ET
There is a lot of people involved in this...not just Murray. They need to dig much deeper than that.

Rhonda August 28th, 2009 1:30 am ET
Farewell,
Michael had his moments at time. Just not very many of them where you see him smile anymore and it is a shame cause he deserved so much more. He deserved to happy and have a life just like anyone else did. What pisses me off is the media don't hound the other celebrities like they did Michael and they are at fault as far as I am concerened help kill him too

Rhonda August 22nd, 2009 3:10 pm ET
Gerald,
He was not a drug addict in the sence that you are making it sound. He was not some street junkie. There is a difference. There is no one trying to glorify anything. They are just asking to find out the truth is all. Michael didn't die of an overdose his was killed. He was found not guilty on child molestation and if people would actually pay attention when it came to the children being in his home, (THE PARENTS WERE THERE WITH THEM). And he didn't sleep in the bed with them moron.


"Pixie Dust "   August 21st, 2010 12:43 am ET

Hi Marguerite

Thank you for enquiring about me. Still going strong, just. I was just going to say, that we have a full moon in our sky at the moment, and looking out at it started to remind me of someone, hmmm.........

That full moon can do strange things to people I know.

Anyway, love to you and your family Marguerite.

God bless.
Goodnight.

Letta(IbeLieve)   August 21st, 2010 6:36 am ET

@Angle Pie, Pixie Dust & LoveConquersAll
Good Morning, I decided to post before I go to dialysis, in case I not feeling my best. I would like to share this posting of my daily word, this one touches me so much. Well, let be reword that, all touches me one way or another. I hope that everyone who reads this finds some connections of “Value” to friendship, our families, special place, but most importantly connection value to “God”.
This early am I had a talk with someone that brought to my attention about some issues about Trust. Not going into details it made me really thank about something, that I need to work which is call forgiveness. But as I read this daily word that is one thing I do Value is God. He is very important to me in my life and that is one issue of trust I do not have a problem with. So, as you read this word I hope that you find confer in it as I have done.
"Value"
I value and give thanks for my oneness with God.
When I think of the things that I value most in life, I may turn my thoughts to my relationships and experiences or to certain material things–my home or possessions. But all of these things are secondary to my faith in God.
I am at one with God, attuned to a higher presence and power. Through God's wisdom within me, I am open to divine ideas, renewed and revitalized, guided and prospered. As I appreciate my relationship with God, everything else in my life falls into place. All that I need and desire is provided in the right time and in the right way. My oneness with God is the foundation of my life. I know that I am divinely cared for each day.
Trust in the Lord, and do good; so you will live in the land, and enjoy security.–Psalm 37:3
Love, Hugs, & Blessings to you All........Letta

I wish Michael and Lisa Marie would have had a child...then again, imagine the pressure of being the child of 2 kings!!!
Peace.

mary u from ohio   August 21st, 2010 6:02 pm ET

Why does one Questions Names.. who are impostering doesn't that take away believing someone.. when they say they are not impostering.. That's how Trust is broken.. you stop believing in others.. you stop trusting to what they say..
When one feeling of one is impostering it cause they did it at one time so does that mean you can not trust yourself...
Believing is without seeing..
Trust is Faith.. Love.. Respect.. to give honor


SuzieQ   August 21st, 2010 8:50 pm ET

“If the essence of my being has caused a smile to have appeared upon your face or a touch of joy within your heart. Then in living – I have made my mark.” Thomas L. Odem Jr

We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of the dream. Wandering by lone sea breakers, and sitting by desolate streams.
World losers and world forsakers, for whom the pale moon gleams.
Yet we are movers and the shakers of the world forever it seems.
Arthur O'Shaunessey

Jessie! Would you believe ,I too was out with the dog ,and stopped and looked up at the moon ,funny it looked as if it had a disgusted expression,so I looked at it some more,and Michael ,came into my head !
I twas as if the moon were saying ,how hurt ,and how disappointed he was ,with us not getting Michaels message! It was really ,a sobering thought! wow .....
Michael stays on my mind,runs through my mind so often ,throughout the day .It is my wish ,that he knows how deeply he is Loved .And how yes ,some of us get his message and will do our best to spread and convey this message of L.O.V.E.
love to you Jessie ,lets see what the courts will say ,Monday .Love Maria C.


Jessie from Auckland, NZ   August 21st, 2010 10:30 pm ET

@babycarie August 21st, 2010 12:00 pm ET

Thank you for your nice comments. Yes, we were all wishing that with regards to Lisa and Michael and when it did not happen, we were all disappointed. Nevermind, probably wasn't meant to be. Yes the poor child, too much.

@Maria Copelli August 21st, 2010 9:28 pm ET

Thank you for your comments. You have cracked me up again. I think we get Michael's message of L.O.V.E. loud and clear now, well I hope so. Yes, waiting in anticipation for the outcome on Monday in the courts. Have a nice day and love to you Maria.


Marguerite   August 21st, 2010 10:35 pm ET

Jessie from Auckland NZ- You are very welcome. You are very right about a full moon having strange effects on people.lol Love to you and your family.

Maria C- You are right about it feeling as if the boxes gave birth enroute to here. I knew we had a lot of stuff but I didn't think it was this much.rofl Thank you and I appreciate your kind words. I just don't understand why people want to pick Michael and his family apart piece by piece. There is plenty to talk about without doing that. The thing is people that do it would have a cow if people started picking them apart piece by piece.

Timeless- You are so sweet for saying that. We have had our differences in the past, but I hope we can put the past behind us and start anew. I still consider you a friend. Take care. Love to you and your family.

@ Letta ~ Hello my dear friend. Hope you are doing okay...You're close in thought. I just read your daily word on "Value" and it is so appreciated. I do value my connections through friendships, family, special places, but most importantly my connection to “God”. With Him, anything is possible...Without Him, nothing is possible. Practicing forgiveness is hard sometimes but trusting is a real tough call. I do agree Trust in God is the only sure thing. Open your heart to God and let His wisdom follow. To have oneness with God is a great and powerful thing to have. Never let go of your Faith, my friend. I continue to pray for you. God Bless You and Much Love to you and your family always!

Peace comes from living in the moment and looking for the good in others. Peacefulness comes from facing our fears and letting them go trusting that things will turn out all right. Peacefulness is also a way of approaching conflict with others so no one is made wrong. Everyone wins because we then work to find a peaceful solution.

Love and Peace to all...


Lori - Justice for Michael   August 22nd, 2010 12:53 am ET

gigi   August 22nd, 2010 1:50 am ET

I haven't looked at these blogs in a long time. I've stopped by here 2 or 3 times since June and I had really stopped reading the blogs here before then cause the nonsense is just ridiculous.

Well, I can say nothing on here has changed. The same back and forth of this side vs that side. The same people generating nicknames. The same people proclaiming they're ultimatums of constant "Oh, I'm done" , "Oh don't post to me" "Oh I don't read your posts (when you know you do. Cause if you didn't read them. how do you know someone is saying this or that?) and the "Oh I'm not coming to this blog again" Yes, I see these same hypocritical fickle people are still posting here. The times when I use to read these blogs. I've observed all the mean, down right rude comments from people. I read over what has been said on this blog topic, the same select few seriously have become even more nasty with your of dagger words and tag team bullying. I maybe assuming, a lot of you are probably older than me and yet are acting so high school. I never seen such a clique in my life.

I notice a couple of times quite a few people have been called out on how they act on this blog. I can't help but laugh, cause those that were called out were described to a tee. I can count on one hand the people that truly needs to be taken down a notch. A very significant part of the reason why this place is such a mess, is because of the instigators in this mix. Instigators that have been coming here day after day
provoking people. Instigators who are not satisfied unless they are fighting on this blog and across cyberspace pushing people's buttons. It makes me wonder who is being more foolish the person acting a fool or the person constantly arguing with a fool. I'm sure everyone here has heard "never argue with a fool". Well, if you haven't. I encourage all of you to google search that phrase. I found an interesting post on a site by Simon Preacher. Take a quick look at that write up on "never argue with a fool" and ask yourself. Am I constantly arguing with a fool? Cause its been clear to me for a long time since the exist of this blog, that quite a few people don't know how to ignore. Lord help us if this person or that person doesn't agree with your particular way of doing things or way of handling things. But that doesn't give people the right to turn on someone else because they are not stooping down to your level of throwing insults at another person(s) you haven't actually met face to face.

By the way, I'm serious when I say Lord help us, cause nobody has it all together where they can say they're above needing God's help. If you are by chance reading my post; I know in the past I don't think my posts were really noticed much. Anyway, for those who are assuming "Oh she's not talkin' bout me, she's definitely talkin' bout them" and before you start "Amen-ing" and saying "Girl that was so refreshing." I will have to say…uh no hold that thought, cause I am referring to you and you, and you, and you. Remember, I said I can count on one hand those that need to be brought down a notch. Well, I'll step down from my soapbox. And no this is not me being "self-righteous" or on an "ego trip" I'm just callin' it like I see it.

Hello SuzieQ:
A trial date will be set once the preliminary hearing is over. IMO, this preliminary hearing is not going to be over in 1 day nor 1 week. The prelim could take months especially with the wait time inbetween each scheduled court date.

Rock With You Horsegirl:
Hello to you. I agree with you. Basically they have been separated for so many years now, that a divorce is just the paperwork to make it legal. Anything Joe does financially impacts Katherine in the courts to carry a portion of his debts. A divorce will eliminate that concern for Katherine.

If Michael is done subperb it will be fanastic, I can't wait to see the King of Pop done right, which he loves so much🙂 I don't watch glee, but if it is done well, I might become a new fan😉

@LoveConquersAll August 18th, 2010 10:10 pm ET

Thank you for posting this poem below. It is very beautiful and almost always brings me to tears. We now know that Michael was a lot of things and not only a great singer and dancer and all-round entertainer, including gifted songwriter, etc., but what a gifted poet he is also. Just one gifted man with many talents. You were truly blessed Michael and what an honour to your Mum with this poem.

"And now that I have come so far
Met with every king and czar
Encountered every color and creed
Of every passion, every greed
I go back to that starry night
With not a fear for muscle or might
You taught me how to stand and fight
For every single wrong and right
Every day without a hold
I will treasure what you've mold
I will remember every kiss
Your sweet words I'll never miss
No matter where I go from here
You're in my heart, my mother dear."

Excerpt from the poem, "Mother"
By Michael Jackson
(Published in his book, Dancing the Dream, 1992)

Good Morning. I pray that your Sunday will be a lovely one. Fill with love, joy, happiness and plenty of Sunday dinner to all. This is the eve before all hell breaks loose on the blog August 23, 2010. I leaning for that day to be a good day and everyone is getting along on this blog or maybe a new blog, who knows. Today’s lesson for me is to be kinder to people and wise. This is the time that our virtual friends come together and show each other respect.
I know I try to treat people on the blog the way I like to be treated and will continue to do so no matter what someone throws at me.
Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I life up my soul. – psalm 113:8
Jesus answers “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me –john 14:6
@Angle Pie
Good Morning my friend, I pray that you are getting the rest you need, because things are about to change soon. Not sure which way, but get ready for the bumpy road.
“Pet”
Every creature is created and blessed by love.
There are an amazing variety of beings on Earth–those with fur, feathers or fins, and those with scales, shells or skin. Each one is created with its own unique characteristics, habits, traits and ways of expressing. When I bring one of these creatures into my life, this pet becomes a channel for love.
I give love as I care for my pets. I protect them and give them a place to live and grow. I receive love as my pets respond to my voice and movements. A wagging tail speaks the simple language of love.
I am grateful for the activity of Spirit evident in the love, support and peace that pets bring.
So out of the ground the Lord God formed every animal of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them.–Genesis 2:19
Love, Hug, & Blessings to All. . . . . . . Letta

@LoveConquersAll
Hello my dear friend. I doing well now after taking a long time resting after dialysis. Only thing I regretted today was missing out on my sister as the called it celebration day. Too sick to attend, but I will make it up by taking her out to dinner before I leave on Thursday, since it will officially be her birthday.
I really enjoyed reading your comment about “value” and it’s appreciation. You are differently right about one thing the most important connection with “God”, that anything with Him by your side anything is possible. I know this because I do nothing without taking to him first. Without “God” , nothing is possible. That daily word yesterday really made me rethink some of my actions and I saw that I am quick to take anger, without really seeing or listening to what is right there in front of me. I thought about something I did two weeks ago, because I was upset, and now I know to sit and talk with God, which way should I go. These, daily words that I post everyday not only for others to read and live by, but also for myself. So, I must make mends for what I did , when the time is right, Now, there is one thing I will never do is give up my Faith, and I very much appreciate that you pray for me.
Now, I am doing a count down six days to go, and Sin City here I come.(LOL), but I am sure there will be lots to read when I get home. I know that the blog will be poppimg since Michael birthday is next Sunday, but I will celebrate it in Sin City, with lots of fun things…..Other then that I just love your comment to me (August 22nd, 2010 @12:24 am ET)Thank you…….Love, Hugs, & Blessings to you and your family. …I will never let go of my Faith! My dear!....Letta

Good Morning, I pray that that the fire has decease by now, and the Lord has blessed your BC with rain. I am glad to read your post that no one so far as die or even lost their homes. But, still the fires could not be good also. I just wanted to say I am thinking about you and your family, also the many families that are going through this there. I will continue to pray that rain will come to help put these fires out, Please keep us all inform to how the process of the fire are doing,……Love, Hugs, & Blessings to you and your family..........Letta

Faith isn't the ability to believe long and far into the misty future.
It's simply taking God at His Word and taking the next step.
– Joni Erickson Tada

Without faith a man can do nothing; with it all things
are possible. –Sir William Osler

When the heart weeps for what is lost, the spirit laughs for what it has found. – Sufi Aphorism

Wisdom is being true to our inner self – thus bringing harmony and peace into our lives..It's discovering a new ideal or solution that meets
everyone's needs.

Wisdom is also honoring people and caring about their rights. It is reflected in the courtesy with which we treat others. Enjoy the following wisdom.

We must be willing to let go of the life we planned so as to have
the life that is waiting for us. M. Forester

Life appears to be too short to be spent in nursing animosity or
registering wrong. – Charlotte Bronte

Timeless,How nice to read your comment! You sound like you will leave us? I truly hope not! You My Dear are highly valued here ,you have always brought an inner peace and calmness here ,and we need it !
It is the rare person ,who can remain calm ,poised ,tactful ,and Loving during the blog 'storms' .smile.....I am sure with the upcoming trial we will have to 'weather' a few more 'storms'! But as Michael sang 'Tell them that it's Human Nature.' Such A Beautiful song ,sang and written ,composed by a another 'GEM' , our sweet Michael.
When 'Just An Average Joe' called you a Gem amongst the 'rubble' ,I whole heartedly agreed ! I hope you will stay here with us Timeless! We need you ! So sorry if I am talking way too much ! L.O.L.
Love and many many warm hugs Maria C.

Shelli? how are you Neighbor ,? Are you getting ready for the trial ,tomorrow? Lets hope for the Best .....Love /hugs Maria C.

Marguerite ,I bet you have to take a few breaks from all the unpacking ,maybe play someM.J. to help you get through! Maybe you can 'blame It on ,....The Boogie.'! Isnt that just the cutest J5 song? It is happy, The J 5 gave us so many happy songs didnrt they ? I cant even imagine how grueling /fun/ it was for them to be shot to fame overnight! Wow ,they all worked very very hard ,and that Little Michael,stepping up to sing his Heart out for US ! wow......
Just reflecting from the 60's to this trial ,it is sobering ,a real wake up call! Justice ,it is slow but it will come,for sure .Love Maria C.

Lori ,HRH ....SMILE...I too enjoyed it when we all could share thoughts,agree,disagree,laugh ,cry ,show Love and kindness,freely without feeling ...accused ,or misunderstood.It was such fun with 'Scarecrow',D.O.M.E. A.K.A.Joe, cris always fun,and knowledgable,'Superfly ' so nice and polite too! Gene ,Stuci ,yes it can be that way again!
I feel too ,if we can keep a sense of humor ,and forgiveness,open mindedness,we may be off to a good Autumn! Lori ,I enjoy your Comments !
And I hope we can All pull it together and spread the truth about our Dear one...Michael .Love Maria C.

Mr Anonymous,I havent forgotten about you Dear friend and Brother !
The leaves are turning ,and as they dance their last dance ,of 2010 ,they are yet more beautiful to me. They are truly evidence of a creator who Loves Beauty ,Variety .I can see clearly why Michael spoke about trees and his Love for them.
Your comments always reflected genuine Loving Concern ,for all here .When my brother died ,your heartfelt comments to me ,helped me get through a sad ,sad time.I felt so much L.O.V.E here i sat in front of my computer ,and sobbed.Out of pure thankfulness,and gratitude ,for all these friends ,bros /sisters I have made here.
Right then and there I looked forward to being back here ,and visiting here with YOU,and all these wonderful people .Yes we are not always nice ,and it is painful to see our Imperfections!
I am deeply Sorry for the ways you and others here have been 'mistreated,Misunderstood,and sadly accused .
But Please know We are in this together ,Black /White,Yellow,Fat /thin/Married /divorced....We came here because of one Man ,and he needs us to unite ,and carry on! Some of us Get IT ,loud and clear! And we need people with open minds and hearts to continue !
So I hope this poorly written too lenghty comment will reach your ...Heart .And you will come back Mr A.,because WE need you ! and Love you ! Maria C.

You should be posting who and what I am responding to instead of just my answer. It might make better sense that way.

This is it!   August 22nd, 2010 3:05 pm ET

The wave came in,
And took me away,
On the tip of its crest,
From my lips I did pray,
Where am I going,
Why must I leave,
What have I done,
In this life I lead,
Please be gentle,
On this journey ahead,
Father are you with me,
Or is it angels instead,
I feel the peace,
In this scarey comfortable place,
What are you showing me,
I feel its heaven to embrace,
My movie did play,
And comfort it gave,
All my life happiness,
Shown because of a wave,
You were not ready,
For me to come with you,
Or was it me not ready,
To be welcomed by you,
An impression you made,
On that very given day,
I was sixteen years old,
Standing at heavens doorway

Bless us all... with second chances in life~

@ Letta –
Your VALUES post is awesome. I agree I too value the most is my connection with God first and the rest follows. I hold dear to me is my family and friendship, That is the most important in my life. All others does not mean anything. 1) God 2) Family 3) Friends that is how I have it in order.

Yet life sometimes brings us pain from those we value very much in life. The trust barrier has been broken that we can no longer respect or better yet we can no longer trust anyone. Only forgiveness thru God can help us and restore that trust that was once lost.

@ Love Conquers All –
Wow today is the big day. I hope and pray that your mom's birthday celebration went well. Also I loved your post about Peace. Please continue with your awesome posts because I also enjoy reading yours along with Letta's.

I am hoping for a good outcome tomorrow on getting justice for Michael! The man that was supposed to be taking care of him hooked him up with propofol without the right equipment on hand and walked away like it was nothing... to die.
Yes I beLIEve I want justice and may the truth come out also as nothing will surprise me anymore.

I pray for your Justice and Truth Michael Jackson may we find both.
RIP KOP 1958~2009

Marguerite   August 22nd, 2010 10:13 pm ET

Maria C– I have took a few breaks.lol But all my music is still packed away.boohoo But Hubby and I went and bought bookcases to turn one of the bedrooms into a library. It will be mainly books but also Hubby's Santa Claus collection and the shot glasses and mugs we have gotten from all the places we have been. As well as the shot glasses a very close friend gave us from some of the places she has been all over the world. She considers Hubby and I her second parents.

It must of been mind blowing to Michael and his brothers but they didn't let it go to their heads when it happened as many did. This is as far as I am taking this. As I have said many a time I refuse to pick him and his family apart. Love, hugs and smiles to you and your family.

Love to all.

@Maria Copelli...I think you are the nicest person on the blogs. Nothing ever seems to get in the way of your tolerance. I am impressed as always and I think I should probably be following the example you set.

@Diane & Judie...a hardy whuuut to you as well. Miss chatting with you. Those were some good times back in the day....anyone care for some Eggs Tommy?

@Cynobia–gosh it has been ages since I have seen your name on a post...hello again! 🙂

@This is It....thanks for the new poem...you are a gift to the bloggy.

Everyone from the old Yahoo group, Rhonda, Heidi, Letta,Nicole, Mara, Toni, Jax, Lex, Linda, Patty, Gene, etc. and et al......thanks for the blogging memories, the good times, the sad times, and, yes even those hysterically funny times, and of course a hi to all I may have inadvertently missed....this is the way I remember the bloggy...when we all used to talk to each other...shared experiences that made everyone an original....

It takes a village to make a blog interesting....just sayin...

I really hope to see everyone from back in the day back on the bloggy now that maybe the court case is going to make some progress and of course it is just about Michael's birthday....

Maybe now we will finally get down to getting some justice done!

You are very welcome, my friend. So glad you enjoyed Michael's poem dedicated to his mom. I love to share his beautiful words. He certainly had a way of expressing himself directly from his heart and soul...Gifted in so many ways. Love to you!

@ Letta ~ Hello there. Happy to hear you got some rest. Hope you have a fabulous celebration dinner with your sister in honor of her birthday. With respect to your daily words, they are such a good resource to set one on the path of righteousness. There are so many lessons to be learned everyday in our human lives. And finally, the countdown begins, my dear, for your upcoming trip to Vegas. So exciting! I will miss you but I know you will be enjoying every minute. You know what they say..."Whatever happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas"...LOL! Hold on tight to that FAITH! Love to you and your family!

Posting Daily Words or bible scripture is a program for some then maybe you need not read then. They, is nothing wrong with sharing spiritual words on the blog, there has been many that has been posted throughout the year. It is not forcing one religious views on others, it is not preaching to others, nor is it self- righteous need to purchase a sense of humor, that should come natural. If, you do not care for none of this as always you can pass the comment or post whatever you consider it to be. It seems to me that for a person who does not care for what one post, always has something negative to say. You would think that one would be glad to have any type of religious views, and good for the soul. Now, if you post to start more mess, you can pass me with that because I will continue to post what I like and enjoy, not only for me but for many others, and if this is not for you kindly skip it as always, apparently you must have some interest, or you would not bother to read any of it. So, as I said and will continue to say it is good for the soul and get pass it. Have a nice night…..Or Blessed night...opps oh I forcing religious on you....

I don't want to take up too much space on this blog because it is about Michael and I don't want to move the spotlight off of him. But I wanted to share some thoughts about the celebration dinner tonight for my mom:

My mom was so surprised and delighted with her birthday dinner. Everyone in my family came including a few more that I did not expect. We had to end up adding another table in the room we were in. I have never seen my mom so happy. There's nothing like spending quality time with family. She never expected this at all and the memories I have will last a lifetime. We all sang Happy Birthday while they brought her cake out (a real whipped cream, golden cake, with blueberry filling and fresh blueberries on top)...It was beautiful. My mom cried. I cried. We all cried...But then we had some laughs too!

One more thing, that was so funny (and magical) is just before we got ready to leave the restaurant, the song that started to play believe it or not, was Michael Jackson's "Don't Stop Til You Get Enough". That really made me smile. Thank you, Michael, I could not think of a better way of ending such a beautiful dinner and a memorable night.

I love you all and, on behalf of my mom, I thank you for your loving thoughts and kind sentiments that mean so much to me. God Bless all of you!


LoveConquersAll   August 22nd, 2010 11:39 pm ET

Reminds me of when Michael through a party for his mom and sang Happy Birthday to her. Of course he had to hide that is what he was doing until almost the end because of the religion, but he managed to do it and she smiled all the way through. I am so glad that your mom enjoyed her special day and my wishes to her continue. Sending her hugs and kisses. Miss you and come visit soon.

@ "Pixie Dust" ~ Always a pleasure, my dear, in sharing Michael's touching words. As far as poetry books by Michael, the only that I know about is his "Dancing the Dream – Poems & Reflections" which was released in 1992. It contains beautiful writings by Michael himself. Not sure if you have read it but it is truly inspiring.

Also, I keep you and your family in my prayers and I do hope that the fire situation in your area is under control and you get plenty of rainfall.

I have a message for you from our friend E that this blog knows as Timeless. Its good-bye, and god bless. For reasons that I can't get into, my friend has decided that enough is enough. No longer will we be graced with those wise words of kindness nor compassion. It is sad how people can manipulate, while forgetting that some have feelings beyond the screen and words in front of them.

@ Timeless
I miss you very much my dear sweet friend. All the laughter and tears we shared, the advice we both gave to each other...you have left an impression in my heart. Just remember, that when its Thanksgiving this year, be more careful with the gravy, ok? And the hotline number to Butterball for all those turkey baking tips. Love you always my friend, hope that our paths will once again cross. Hugs.

Oh, I always feel like

@Timeless

I am now sobbing, my heart is hurting.... please forgive me but I only have one question for you at this present time...why my dear friend? You are truly the shining light of the mj blogs, the shining light who shines through miles and miles of darkness, the gem, a bright and gleaming gem beneath all of the dust and rubble.Your kind heart and peaceful nature is very much needed here and your beautiful soul and heart is truly valued here, you balance out the blogs, when there is trouble and hostility you are quick and willing to offer your postive, inspirational and uplifting words of encouragement, peace,love and togethernes. I am speechless, completely stunned and deeply, deeply saddened by this unfortunate news you have shared with us. I am sitting here thinking about all of our conversations and the brief time and tender moments we have shared together. I can honestly say that you are truly one of the most honorable,decent,kind-hearted, compassionate ,bright, wise, thoughtful, mild mannered, and outstanding beings I have ever, in my entire life been so blessed and fortunate to have shared time with. There have been times when I had a lonely soul, sad and crying heart, there were times when I felt so alone and lost like I didn't have a friend in this world, there are many times when my spirit was wounded and broken and you were right there with me making sure I was okay, offering most helpful words, lending your ear and a helping hand. You helped and guided me to a better and happier place, yes...you really did. You were my saviour at that moment in time, I kindly thank you for all that you have done but most importantly Timeless, I thank you for being you, a wonderful spirit and human being. Our world needs more beautiful souls alike. Please don't allow anyone to get the best of you, don't allow anyone to get your spirits down, and don't allow them to dim your beautiful light...it is what evil and dark hearts set out to do, it is their only and main objective. I respect you and I respect your decision no matter what the outcome will ultimately be. I will cherish our friendship today, tomorrow and always. I am sending love and many blessings your way. Be well and take care.

To all who have inquired about my whereabouts and wellbeing, I want to kindly thank all of you. Yes, I have been doing wonderfully. I pray that you are all in good health and spirits. I have been spending most of my time with my family and close friends. I miss all of you dearly, I truly do. There isn't a day that passes without moments where I don't think of you or wonder how you all are doing. It warms my heart and soul each day knowing I have amazing friends like you all, you are all embedded deep within my heart. You are all good, decent beings with kind and innocent hearts. Please continue to spread Michael's messages of Love, Unity and Peace and please continue to be a strong and postive force in our world. May God continue to bless all of you. It has been a long and tiring day and I am terribly tired.🙂

Goodnight

Letta(IbeLieve)   August 23rd, 2010 3:57 am ET

Good Morning
For those who enjoys reading the daily word, here is one that is an eye catcher. It is called "Forgive". This to me is something that is needed especially on the blog. So, please feel free to read it, and those who feel that religious views are being push on you skip my post. Thank you........
Forgive
My heart blossoms with joy, love and peace.
To prepare a flower bed or garden, I begin by removing weeds, stones or the remains of previous plantings. Working steadily and with patience, I open the space to sunlight, air and moisture.
With each handful that I remove, I see more of the potential for the garden I have in mind. When it is clear, I rake the soil. I now have a perfect spot in which to plant my seeds of choice.

Forgiveness is much like preparing a garden. I prepare my heart by removing–one handful at a time–the debris of resentment, misunderstanding or anger. My heart opens to divine light and love. It is the perfect place for joy, love and peace to blossom.
They shall again live beneath my shadow, they shall flourish as a garden.–Hosea 14:7
Love, Hugs, & Blessings to you know whom you are.........Letta

Per CNN:
“Monday’s hearing is expected to be quick. It will set a date for the preliminary hearing in the involuntary manslaughter case against Murray, his lawyer said.

The judge has indicated the preliminary hearing will be in October and is expected to last more than a week.”

mary u from ohio   August 23rd, 2010 10:50 am ET

Thinking of Michael.. The Love he gives us. the ones he love more is his family...
& no Trial or Dr. Murray on my mind.....
I alway knew Michael loves life to much to let anything bad happen to him.. 🙂


babycarie   August 23rd, 2010 10:53 am ET

Los Angeles, California (CNN) - When Dr. Conrad Murray returns to a Los Angeles court Monday afternoon, he is likely to be hounded by dozens of Michael Jackson fans angry about the pop star's death.

Monday's hearing is expected to be quick. It will set a date for the preliminary hearing in the involuntary manslaughter case against Murray, his lawyer said.

The judge has indicated the preliminary hearing will be in October and is expected to last more than a week.

The Los Angeles County coroner ruled that Jackson's death on June 25, 2009, was from an overdose of propofol, a powerful anesthesia used to put surgical patients to sleep.
Video: Dr. Conrad Murray a 'fall guy'?

Murray, hired as Jackson's personal doctor while the singer rehearsed for his comeback concerts, admits giving him propofol as a sleep aid. But Murray's lawyer said the amount was much smaller than what was found in Jackson's body during the autopsy.

"The fact [of the way] that he died was a mystery a year ago, and still is," Houston attorney Ed Chernoff told CNN in an exclusive interview recently.

Members of Jackson's family have attended each hearing since Murray's arrest in February.

When brother Jermaine Jackson left the last hearing in June, he indicated some of them were not satisfied with the case against Murray.

"Dr. Murray's the fall guy," Jermaine Jackson said after the hearing. "This is bulls**t."

California authorities announced last month that seven other doctors and a nurse who treated Jackson will not face criminal prosecution in connection with the singer's death.

Judge Michael Pastor denied a request by the state medical board to order Murray to stop practicing medicine as a condition of his bond while he awaits trial. His lawyer said he has no California patients, although he continues to treat patients in Nevada and Texas.

Jackson fans have organized protests at each hearing, taunting Dr. Murray as he entered and departed the courthouse.

One fan website said they would follow Murray "into the streets" after Monday's hearing with banners on an overpass of the Hollywood Freeway.


Angel Pie   August 23rd, 2010 11:06 am ET

Wow today is the day folks. Hold on this will be very interesting. I will be at work so I won't miss much hehe. I guess looking at a fly on a wall has more action than the hearing today (yawns). I will however take a peek around forums at work and see what is going on. The hearing doesn't interest me however something else does. I guess I will have to grab some coke and popcorn like Michael Love stated and just watch the film unfold before our eyes.

@ Marguerite –
Your right about the seatbelts however a few may need to be bolted to the floor HA! Especially today =)

@ Michael Love –
I agree this is an awakening. However, for me I have always have faith and hope even more now that everything is gradually unfolding bit by bit. I am not alone in this either. Your right though, it will give hope to those who have given up hope. Shall we sit back now and watch. In a few hours another scene of the film will occur.

@ Letta –
Where ever you are, take care. I will talk to you later.

@ Jordan
Thank you for your concern, however, I do not feel Timeless will return. The unfortunate thing is that many people have this longing for MJ that they forget we are all fans, that we are all people. Instead, they hunt, stalk, harass, send nasty emails, hack computers, trace IP's, send out password viruses, anything they can in their quest to find Michael. Its so simple, if they would look inside of themselves, they would see that MJ is a part of us..a part of his fans. He put all his heart and soul into his music to share with us. Now some of his so- called fans are going around playing nasty, viscous games with people who happen to have very caring souls, and hearts. Just because someone is kind, has a big heart, tries to remain neutral, doesn't make them an insider of any kind. The behavior I have seen is exactly what Michael would run from..the obsessed fan. This falls far out of boundaries for his ideology of healing the world. As someone who respects him, I would tell him, to lace up those Nikes
and run as fast as he could, do not stop. IF this is way that people behave who claim to care about him, then he is better off out of the limelight forever. For those who think he has passed, they are not honoring his legacy by the attacks either. Again, goes against what Michael firmly believes in, healing the world, peace, harmony and unity.
Take care Jordan.

LoveConquersAll,Thank you kindly for the reply back to my question about knowing if Michael had any books published with his poetry. I am happy to hear that he did.I have never read his book 'Dancing the Dream",but I sure would love to.I am gonna try my best to find a copy,i will search online and all the bookstores,.Thanks once again,have a wonderful evening,love and smiles to you.

@ Mr A

Nice to see you post and to hear you are well. Thanks for letting us all know.

Take Care
Love and Blessings to you


LoveConquersAll   August 24th, 2010 12:37 am ET

@ Letta ~ Loved your Daily Word on "Forgiveness"...
I believe that Forgiveness is a gift you give to yourself. It is not something you do FOR someone else. It is not complicated. It is simple. It challenges you to give up your upsetting thoughts about the situation and to believe in the possibility of a better future. It builds confidence that you can survive the pain and grow from it.

Also, Letta, I know today is difficult in missing your mom on her special day. Your mom's patience and her goodness inspire your spirit, and never cease. You are in my thoughts and prayers and I ask God to fill your heart with peace and solace. Love and Blessings to you and your family, my dear friend.


ibelieve25   August 24th, 2010 12:44 am ET

@Jordan:
Letta does live the words she posts here. I am sure she took your question the wrong way, as I am sure you meant it in a flattering way. I have the honor of knowing her outside the virtual world, she speaks her mind always, and does not mince her words. She has been bashed and trashed so many times, yet has been able to maintain her cool composure. But being human, she has lost it a couple of times as would any rational person being attacked. She is a great lady, and a good friend. Thank you for your question.


Jordan   August 24th, 2010 12:46 am ET

@ ibelieve25
Timeless will return. He is like the bumble bee insatiably drawn to the sweet honey and light. I do understand your concerns; but, have trust and patience. You will see. Your heart is vast as well as your knowledge. Michael would be proud of what you expressed. Hold your head up high. Your words reverberate through the blog with intellect and understanding. Yes, it would be wiser for others to heed your words. They speak volumes of your exceptional character.
Infinite Love, Jordan


ibelieve25   August 24th, 2010 12:47 am ET

@ LoveConquersAll
Nice to see you my friend. Yes, today is quite the emotional one for Ms. Letta, but she's managing with a little help from her friends and family.
Hope you had a wonderful day. Hugs and love to you.


LoveConquersAll   August 24th, 2010 12:54 am ET

@ Maria C. ~ I agree with you. The elderly deserve to get dignity and respect...They certainly have earned it. I also hope that "Timeless" changes her mind as well. I always look forward to reading her posts and she really is a rare gem. Keep our fingers crossed. We equally show our love for Michael and our torches are held high. I send you love and hugs, my friend!

@ Maura ~ Thank you for your kind comments and there is nothing like being surrounded by the people you love. It generates so much happiness and joy in one' s heart! Sending you and your family many blessings, hugs, and L.O.V.E, my friend!


nina1fox   August 24th, 2010 12:58 am ET

Letta

Oh beautiful one. May you find peace and love within your treasured heart. Loss is always difficult, but you have many that care and love you here. As I reach out my hand to take yours so we can walk together through the thorns of roses out into the garden so beautiful to behold. And the sun shines down upon you bringing warmth and love!
Always your friend, Nina!


LoveConquersAll   August 24th, 2010 1:05 am ET

@ "Pixie Dust" ~ (August 23rd – 11:17pm)
You are very welcome, my friend. The book contains 28 essays and reflections, 17 poems, 84 color and black and white photographs, and 20 pieces of other artists artwork. Michael writes on topics such as creating his dance and music, children, religion, life, love, and autobiographical reflections. I am not sure if it is still in print for you to be able to buy it from a regular bookstore. I would inquire with them and try googling "Dancing the Dream" ...I hope you can get it! I send you Hugs and Smiles!!!!


Kat   August 24th, 2010 1:06 am ET

@ Letta

My dear friend today would be filled with both happiness and sadness. Happiness for all the loving memories and sadness that she is not with you to celebrate this day. May god help you and your family through this difficult time.

Sending you lots of hugs


ibelieve25   August 24th, 2010 1:08 am ET

@ Jordan
Thank you for your kinds words. I will hope for the return of my friend, however, the light within Timeless has been dimmed. Through the careless behaviors of so many, my friend left with a saddened heart. One that was shattered, that no one can repair right now. I know that my friendship with Timeless made me a target as well, but what they don't understand is that Timeless and I are just friends, nothing more nothing less. Both of us have dear loved ones in our lives, but through this experience with Michael, we became close friends. Both of us had our ups and downs, but through talking we were able to be a great support system for one another. Both of us learned something from the other. I wish many on here could experience that type of friendship, where you grow from it. I hope Jordan, you decide to stay around, and continue to blog. Do not let anyone put out your light. See what I mean, its not about what I believe, or what you believe, its about Michael. Its about how best to honor him, whether or not he is alive or has passed. Take care Jordan. And again, thank you for your kind words.


LoveConquersAll   August 24th, 2010 1:14 am ET

@ ibelieve25 ~ Thanks for advising me about Letta. I can understand and feel her sadness today. I only wish I could give her a big hug but I know, like you say, with the love and support of her family and friends she is getting what she really needs. And more importantly, her God-given faith and strength will see her through. Hope you had a good day, my friend, and it is always a pleasure to see you. I promise I will be stopping by real soon! Much Love to you, my friend!


Letta(IbeLieve)   August 24th, 2010 1:15 am ET

@Jordan
Sorry, that It may had came out so strong. Just your question caught me in a not so good day for me. I do believe in forgiveness, and I do go by what I post. Thank you,,,,Love, Hugs, & Blessings...Letta


LoveConquersAll   August 24th, 2010 1:26 am ET

A Lesson in Life

Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of good or bad luck. Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul.

Without these small tests, if they be events, illnesses or relationships, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere.

If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heart, forgive them. For they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to who you open your heart to.

If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but because they are teaching you to love and opening your heart and eyes to things you would have never seen or felt without them.

Make every day count. Appreciate every moment and take from it everything that you possibly can, for you may never be able to experience it again.

Talk to people you have never talked to before, and actually listen. Hold your head up because you have every right to. Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don't believe in yourself, no one else will believe in you either.

You can make of your life anything you wish. Create your own life and then go out and live it.


ibelieve25   August 24th, 2010 1:32 am ET

@ LoveConquers All
Thank you for sharing the lessons in life. It brought a tears to my eyes. Unconditional love is what we should all strive not only to give, but to be able to receive as well. Love and hugs to you.


Jordan   August 24th, 2010 2:22 am ET

@ ibelieve25
Thank you for your depth and understanding not to mention standing up for your friend. That is an exceptional quality which is admirable. In live sometimes we need to make a stance... draw the line so to speak after taking a self inventory of our values and what we cherish in life. I honor your willingness to stand up for your friend.

@ Letta
I am sorry for your loss. I have read many aforementioned posts who hold you in their hearts. In time your wound will heal, but never to be forgotten. It is when we experience profound pain, we often gain a deeper understand of ourselves. With pain comes knowledge. May you find peace at the end of your journey. May your wound that resides deep within your heart begin to heal.
Infinite Love, Jordan

@Pixie Dust
Good Morning; as always you are very welcome. Well, Thank you for wishing me a lovely day, yesterday however, it was not a good day for me. Maybe after my not so lovely treatment this early am, things will be better today. You, always inspite how I may feel one day to another bring a smile of joy from your post to me. So, Thank you for your comments each day……Love, Hugs, & Blessings to you and your family…..Letta

Good Morning. I must say the rollercoaster’s, are going up and down, but having a little dangerous fun is what it is all about. I love the rollercoaster’s their fun until it makes your stomach queries, but hey it all for fun……Love, hugs, & Blessings to you and family…..Letta
@LoveConquersAll
Good Morning my dear friend; Thank you for your comment to me on August 24th@12:37 am. You’re right about “Forgiveness”. This is something that you do personally for one self. It is something that one has the option to use if one is forgiving to another. At times, I’ve had to apply this, because I can be a stubborn woman, and take a while for me to forgive another. Also, you do learn from experience in forgiving another, and help’s you grow within one self as well. But, at the end of the day, I will forgive, but never forget, that also is one lesson to learn from as well.
Once a about a time someone told me that I was a wise woman. I try to look at life as a lesson each day. You may learn more about it differently depending on the situation. This is why I apply what I say to my life and try my best to treat others as I will want to be treated. A friend keeps reminding me of one issue I have, that I need to forgive on and at this present time I’m really trying to apply forgiveness , but as I said I can be stubborn too, so that situation is taking me longer, but one day I will forgive this person time will tell. Smiles…..Love, Hugs, & Blessings to you and your family
Also, I like to thank all that help me through that day of my mom B’day. Thank you for caring LCA, Angle Pie, Nina, Kat, Rhonda, Maura and ib. Thank you all for the support that you gave me.
@Nina1fox
Good Morning my friend; thank you for that wonderful heart filling comment to me @12:58 am. It is nice to know many cares and is willing to be there when you need a hand. I will gladly take your hand for support when I’m down. Thank you very much for being there…..Love, Hugs, & Blessings to you…..Letta
@Kat
Hey Hun; thank you for the comment @1:06 am. It is such a great feeling to know that there are so many people there to help when things are sad or need support when you feeling down. This bring such joy to me to know that I have friends out there like you who always there when I need them. Thank you very much my friend with all my heart….Lots of hugs & Love, & Blessings to you and your family…..Letta

Good Morning my friend; Thank you so much for helping me out, when I was not in a good place yesterday. You, knew what I was going through and let others understand the problem. Thank you for being able to let Jordan know how I truly am, outside of this big wide Virutal World. I am who I am and straight to the point, and will speak my mind you do know that.LOL Thank you for what you done and thank you for being there also. Love….Hugs….& many Blessings to you and your family…..Letta


Letta(IbeLieve)   August 24th, 2010 5:51 am ET

@Love Conquers All
Thank you for the post on “Lesson in Life”. You are so right everything happens for a reason, I believe that it does test you in many ways of your soul. Believe me I know, at the moment especially with what I go through three times a week, and it is so hard at times for me to walk out that door @4:30 in the morning, I made a promise that I would never miss another treatment, because one time I refuse to go for a week. I get tired of needles, and being sick from those treatments, but as you stated everything happens for a reason. I pray that this road will end with joy when there is no need for me to go anymore, at least that is what I pray for everyday.
Now, hmmm the forgiving I understand and can do, depending what it may be, but Trust, well it is no secret to most that I had trust issues, and that takes a little longer to handle, but one thing that I can say is I give my love unconditionally to friend, family and apply it here on the blog.
What you have posted here on the blog is deep and everyone should truly read it and understand what you are saying, hey even me, some of what you said has me thinking on the real, and taking to heap that life has dealt us all things in life that will teach to be better each and every day. Thank you for such an aspiring post, my dear friend…..Love, Hugs, & Blessings to you and your family…Keep the Faith, my dear……Letta

@Angle Pie
Good Morning my friend; hope your day starts off well. Thank you for our chat last evening. Here, is another daily word to share with you and anyone else that enjoys my post.
Called "Live Today"
I live this day one precious moment at a time.
I choose to be at ease with the present moment whatever form it happens to take. This is a moment I do not want to miss.
If I let my mind linger in the past or stray into the future, I might miss the fullness of what life holds for me right now. I am unable to change the past, so I gently let it be and focus on living. I realize I have plans to make for the future–but I do not live there. I live right here in the present moment.
Right now, I have the opportunity to say "yes!" to life, to be alive and aware of the wondrous energy of God coursing through my body.
I live this day one precious moment at a time and enjoy the life I've been given. I am grateful for the fullness of my life and for each golden opportunity to live it well.
Give us this day our daily bread.–Matthew 6:11
Love, Hugs, & Blessings to you and to All........Letta

The pursuit of happiness is a most ridiculous phrase: if you pursue happiness you'll never find it.
– C.P. Snow

Happiness is a choice.
– Anonymous

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
– Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama

The path to happiness is forgiveness of everyone and gratitude for everything.
– jlh

What is admirable about those who have been of great service to humanity is not that they suffered in being of service, but that they found their source of happiness (joy if you prefer) in that service.
– jlh

I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.
– Rabindranath Tagore


babycarie   August 24th, 2010 7:30 am ET

Same selfishness goes on...where does Michael fit in here??
Oh, sorry, my bad...he doesn't!
Just more names with the same tone and same disregard towards Michael Jackson.
How does one come to Michael Jackson bloggys over and over without posting anything remotely close to the topic or to the man himself??
Praise yourselves at his expense over an over and over again without reason, and this is adult behavior?
If Michael were alive he would be disgusted...self absorbed love is not Michael Jackson...and this is not a chat roll for attention seeking chat rollers.
As MMJ would say, sorry Michael.
RIP Sweet MJ

A true friend allows forgiveness
When one has done a wrong
A true friend will lend a hand
When ever one is not strong

A true friend would always care
through the pain one must bare
A true friend will always know
what to say and make their day

A true friend would always listen
when the other tries to speak
A true friend will always accept
Whether one is strong or weak

A true friend would be forever
whether they travel and away
A true friend will never leave
Each other's heart they will stay

To my special friend, I rejoice and I pray
I will be there for you each and every day

Thank you for bringing depth and meaning to my life……


nina1fox   August 24th, 2010 4:20 pm ET

@babycarie

Michael was human and experienced his own personal loss. I am sure he would have been proud that this blog is also used for those who have experienced their own personal loss and grief in life and had the courage to share it on this blog. After all, this blog is really about the “human condition”

How about backing off for a day since Letta is struggling emotionally!!!
Nina


nina1fox   August 24th, 2010 5:03 pm ET

@ Letta

Taking your hand in mine and holding it tight as we walk side by side through the thorns of life, together. Standing tall and proud with a knowledge and vision only friendship can provide. You cannot force forgiveness; it can only be experienced in your time. If your friend is worthy of your stellar friendship, he/she will be willing to wait and be there when you are ready. I am sure your friend has learned a very valuable lesson in life. Sometimes when two people are so much alike, friction is often created. The test of true friendship is the willingness to see the value in each other and be willing to have patience, acceptance and forgiveness. A true equal that can fully understand your complexity and compassion is like a rare gem, and not to be tossed away because of small flaw of miscommunication. You mention you are a stubborn woman, and I suppose your friend is likewise. Conflict is created from both sides, not just one! Possibly this is a lesson for both of you to learn, providing growth!


babycarie   August 24th, 2010 9:28 pm ET

Chat rolls are for personal postings, and these bloggys are for Michael Jackson. This is not a place to converse about yourselves...go to a chat roll and maybe assume the true identity of yourselves.


LoveConquersAll   August 24th, 2010 10:38 pm ET

@ ibelieve25 ~ Hello my friend. So glad you enjoyed "A Lesson in Life"...And it is so true about giving unconditional love and also be able to receive it. Just having that pure connection with another human being is supreme. Thank you for the love and hugs which I am sending right back to you!

@ Letta (August 24th – 5:49am) ~ Hello there. I understand completely about stubborness which is something I face myself, in fact everyone goes through this at one time or another. Don't be so hard on yourself. Keep your heart open to God's will and listen to hear what God's wisdom is saying to you. Much Love to you and your family, my dear friend!

@ Jessie from Auckland, NZ (August 24th – 8:25am) ~ You're very welcome. And yes the words are truly inspiring...Many Blessings to you, my friend!

@ Nina ~ Just want to say hello and that I thoroughly enjoyed reading your posts...Very well stated! I also loved reading your poem, "True Friend"...You certainly sound like you are one!

Please know that you are in my prayers daily and I do ask God to comfort you and that this difficult road that you walk upon will end joyfully soon. I pray that you will no longer require treatments...I pray for you to be healed.
I have only come to know you through this blog, as my virtual friend, but I feel very close to you spiritually. Please stay strong and hold onto your faith, my friend, and believe!

Also Letta, your 6:00am post is another truly inspiring Daily Word. Live each day to the fullest and be thankful. Thank you for sharing this with us! Love & Blessings to you and your family!

Our hearts and hands are reached out for you. We will always be here for you as long as we are breathing. Stay strong girlfriend. As much that have been spoken on this blog about so many losing a loved one you would think people would understand sometimes even online friends can help heal a wound, or at least help make it stop hurting for awhile. I do know how you feel my friend. Have been there and done that and I am still there. Sending you the biggest hug you can imagine and love to you.

Much Love

LoveConquersAll   August 24th, 2010 11:45 pm ET

Hope...Keep the Faith

In times of darkness, there is still light
Never ever give up, just stand up and fight
Hold on to your courage and give it all that you've got
Don't ever let anyone tell you what you are or what you're not
They discriminate because your different but don't worry, they just hate you cause your beautiful...
When you feel like you're falling and there is nothing left, hold on to your hope and take a deep breath...
No worries, pain don't last always, and when you have to cry, don't be ashamed everyone cries sometime I know I do...
If you lose everything that you have, just pick up your heart and hold onto your sanity and rebuild...
You can make it just keep the faith!

Hi again my dear friend; Awwww I did not meant to bring tears to your eyes. I was just sharing about with the “Lesson of Life”, because I am going through it presently. Just sharing my feeling about what hand I’ve been dealt at the moment. Yes, this is a difficult road for me and God forgive me for saying this I truly hate it. But, I try to look at the good side of things, so that I can have better hope that this one day will change. I’m so sorry that I did that to you. LCA, thank you for your prayers, that at deeply appreciated here. People, really do not understand what this means, until they goes through all this pain. One, for sure I will continue to be strong and keep the faith that all I believe will good at the end of this experience that I now facing. On the other hand it could be worst, so I know that I’m bless for now. Thank you for always giving me positive comments and beautiful comments that brings much joy to the heart.

@ Letta ~ My dear friend. Please...there is no need for you to apologize to me. It is not about me at all. I am just a very emotional person to begin with.

Your words are filled with so much courage and God-given strength. I know that giving up is not an option. Focus on the positives which it sounds like exactly what you do and this will indeed help you make it through to what the next day brings. Please know that you have never done anything but bring joy to my day when I read you...Always remember that. You bring encouragement to all of us everyday on this blog. I am blessed to have you in my life and you have so many people who love you on this blog and we will be there for you...You can count on that.

Lastly, keep sharing the Daily Word with all of us, NEVER, ever stop. We need this to carry on. One more thing, the countdown to Sin City is almost up, my dear...God, I wish I was going...LOL! "I'll be there" with you in spirit! Much Love and Many Hugs to you, my friend always! xoxo

@LoveConquersAll
Hello again my dear friend; thank you for that beautiful comment to me @12:39 am. I try to keep strange and to hold my head up high and know that the Lord will see me through it all. Also, there are people like you that gives me support and prayers to carry me on this journey also. So, I will like to thank for all you post to me in support.
As for the daily word, I will continue to post them every day, ummm except, when I leave for Sin City, late Thursday night it will not be, unless I bring a laptop with me. (need to think about that one)smiles. Yes, I am looking forward to Sin City, I love it there at night time, all the beautiful lights and the strip. Wow, just thinking about it now bring such big smiles to me. Whatever, I do one thing for sure it will stay right there. LOL……Love, Hugs, & Blessings to you and family……Keep the Faith…..my dear……Letta

@ Letta ~ Keep the laptop at home...LOL! You may be absent on these blogs but never absent from our thoughts. Enjoy yourself...(Of course, I don't have to tell you that...LOL!!!)

@ Letta

Take care and wishing you a better day. The experience from loss comes and goes like the tides in the ocean. One minute you are warm and dry and the next your are drowning in a sea of pain. May today be a warm and dry for you....sweet Letta!

@LCA
Thank you for your kind and gracious words. I guess the question would be... what is the 'operational definition' for "good friend" as we all have our moments and can let others' down. The internet is one of illusion. One may need to learn acceptance that others who create an illusion must have a good reason and not to take it so personally.

What they project on to us results from their cognitive constructs about their perception of them. It really has nothing to do with us. That can be said at all levels of life. Life is a curve. If one moves away from the curve into a flatten area, they cease to grow and obtain new information. I am working on the acceptance that those in which I care about must maintain an illusion in some areas.... My respect of them must include my acceptance of their need to keep a portion that is based in illusion.


Letta(IbeLieve)   August 25th, 2010 4:09 am ET

@LoveConquersAll
Your right about that, there is too much to do out in Sin City, then for me to hang on to a laptop there. LOL I pretty that the Circus, Circus Hotel has computers if I really need to use one, but I will doubt if time permits for me to be thinking about posting the blog. Smiles….Just after Thursdays’ Morning there will be no daily words, from me posted till maybe Monday night upon my return. Just getting excited about it by talking. Wow ….. I going to try and be a good girl while I’m there! LOL…….Love, Hugs, & Blessings to you and family….Keep the Faith, my dear!.....Letta

God Morning ,
@Angle Pie, LoveConquersAll, Rhonda, Ibelieve25, Lois48, Pixie Dust, Marg., Maria C. .Maura and anyone else I forgot. Hope that everyone’s Wednesday will be a great one. Besides it called hump day. I know mines starting off with Dialysis again this morning, going three straight days. (yuke), Anyway, just pray all is well with you all. Opps. Forgot r to include Mr. A in the good morning also. I guess he still my friend also.LOL

Well, again I sharing with those who enjoy reading my daily word, this one is good to, well to me personally I feel all daily words are good to me anything with the “Lord”, first is good with me.

Divine Order
Divine order is established in me and the activities of my life.
Much of the stress in daily life comes from thinking there is not enough time to do all that we want to do, or feel we should do. But actually, time is not the issue. Accessing divine wisdom to use time wisely is what's needed.
I let go of the idea that my time and energy are too much in demand. I accept my God-given power and ability to accomplish. I accept God's wisdom to discern what is meaningful from what is superficial. I courageously let go of that which serves no higher purpose.
Divine order is established in my thinking, my life and my activities. I give thanks that God is working in and through me. God gives me the ability, energy and wisdom I need to do what is mine to do.
All things should be done decently and in order.–1 Corinthians 14:40

Michael Jackson changed the world and, more personally, my life forever. He is the reason I dance, the reason I make music, and one of the main reasons I believe in the pure goodness of human kind. He was a close friend of mine for 20 years. His music, his movement, his personal words of inspiration and encouragement and his unconditional love will live inside of me forever. I will miss him immeasurably, but I know that he is now at peace and enchanting the heavens with a melody and a moonwalk.

I love you Michael.

– Wade Robson

Oh, and the 'song' was a spinoff to a Michael Jackson song!!! So there...na-na-na-na-na!!! Grow up!!
Michael Jackson...remember him??!!

@ALL, Good morning! I just wanted to share something ,I feel it bears repeating! smile.....
'Power ISNT ,showing how strong you are by hurting others ,But How WILLING you are to send L.O.V.E. in Response to Hate .' The Daily Love
So many of You do just that here every single day ! Love to you ALL.Maria C.

Mr Anonymous, The air is getting cooler ,and the leaves are begging us to dance with them ,as they start their last tumbles ,anxiously awaiting the happy children who will rake them into huge piles ,and jump on them . One of the most fun things ,a child can still enjoy ,rich or poor!
I think of you ,and hope your Autumn ,will be filled with happy children ,playing ,laughing running ,jumping ....and that you will too,be getting some rest ,a pot of hot tea, fresh juices and a good book to enjoy ,and savor!
Michael has taught us to play ,no matter our age ,to laugh when we feel like crying ,to smile though our hearts are broken ,to follow our dreams, to give to others ....Freely ,to Love our Parents ,and our children ,eat meals with them ,play music ,dance with them ,let them imagine pretend......and above all Michael has raised the 'Bar' on what self sacrificing L.O.V.E. is all about.
We come here ,yes for Michael ,because we L.O.V.E ...... and it is because of people like you who open their Hearts ,and share ,that I continue ,to be here .I truly hope to see you here again ,you are precious ,and you are Missed tremendously .
please enjoy this day ....Love ,and so many many warm hugs ,like an 'Old Friend' you my Brother ,will be forever in my imperfect heart .Maria C.

'We're trying to find 500 people who can write–factually and intelligently when requested–with an eye to the pragmatic aspects of reclaiming Michael Jackson's public image.
What if around 500 people were to be made aware of misinformed, biased, or otherwise negative mainstream press about Michael Jackson–the kind that potentially influences much of Joe Public? What if these 500 could muster facts and cool persuasion to respectfully respond to Michael-bashing press every time it opens its maw? What if The 500 could refute the notion that anyone standing up for Michael Jackson is just another "crazed fan?" How about if we happen instead to be concerned and intelligent citizens who've had enough of this cesspool of judgment and persecution–this trampling of ethics in pursuit of dirty dollars–that characterized the media during Michael's trial, and continues unabated today?'

Letta(believe),Good Morning sweetie,thank you for sharing the daily word
"Divine Order" and the quotes about friends, they are so true aren't they? Letta,are you all packed and getting excited for your trip to Vegas? I am so happy for you.My vacation is coming up pretty soon as well,but I am not going to such an exciting place as yourself.Please have a great time and have a wonderful day ,Love and many smiles.

Maria C, Good Morning, thank you for sharing that about the daily love,I agree with you 100%. Have a wonderful day, take care.I send love and many smiles to you.


nina1fox   August 25th, 2010 3:11 pm ET

@ babycarie

This web site is owned by CNN, it is not yours nor mine or anyone else's. This site is a "public forum" so even though the topic is about Michael Jackson, there is the "freedom of speech" which allows people the right to express within the rules laid down by the owners of this site (hence CNN Moderators). And as with all community gatherings there will always be differences of opinions.

The adult behavior would be either tolerance or not to read those blogs in which will otherwise irritate or anger you. People take the internet just too seriously. Especially when it can easily be based in illusion.

I am delighted for you that Michael had such an impact of enlightenment on your life. We all certainly need that. I am happy you had found your venue of enlightment and now coping with the loss. And that, Carie, is a part of life. One we all must endure and accept.... moving from the abyss of our emotions on out through the tunnel into the light! May you again find your bright light! - Nina


Marguerite   August 25th, 2010 5:42 pm ET

Letta– I am fantastic. How is your day going? When the treatments and the pain is unbearable all you have to do my friend is call on God. He loves you and is there for you. Love, hugs, smiles and blessings to you and yours.

Love to all.


babycarie   August 25th, 2010 9:23 pm ET

I was raised with 'unwritten code' of ethics...that even if there is no regulations that require certain behaviors, you just do certain things because it is the correct thing to do...like blogging for Michael Jackson on his bloggys...but to assume that other people were raised with this unspoken moral ethics is obviously incorrect. To use a forum for the purpose of discussions regarding the topic of Michael Jackson for personal chat rolls is selfish ignorance...but LKL has no guidelines for ignorance so I will just continue to advocate for the blog to be for Michael Jackson...freedom of speech really is such a wonderful thing.
Oh, and the overwhelming attention towards me and Suzie...save it for Michael Jackson...it really is wasted on me...I will not speak for Suzie but I am sure she feels the same.


Marguerite   August 25th, 2010 10:30 pm ET

Angel Pie   August 25th, 2010 10:51 pm ET

@Letta –

I can feel that sense of excitement for this weekend. God Lord, I am jealous LOL. Well remember enjoy your time there and do report back to me and Love Conquer All every hour by the hour. If we don't hear back from you well I can try to be a sub for you while your gone. I can try to do a daily word but o boy mines could be a little rougher. Yours are always beautiful and spiritual and has always lifted me emotionally when I am getting ready for work or when I find time. Chat with you later, have to clean my place first before I go to the House of Love. There will be walkthru in our apartments tomorrow.


Angel Pie   August 25th, 2010 10:54 pm ET

@ Marguerite –

That is a very dizzy statement you made...HA!


Marguerite   August 25th, 2010 11:27 pm ET

Angel Pie– Dizzy? Nah, all you have to do is shut your eyes when you start to get dizzy.rofl rofl


LoveConquersAll   August 25th, 2010 11:46 pm ET

@ Letta ~ Hello...Hope you are doing well, my friend.
I thank you for the Daily Word on the "Divine Order" of things. I know this can be difficult at times because normally we want to take control ourselves instead of "Let Go, Let God." It is His determination of how things ought to be, which is the only way anything can work correctly in accordance to His will. Personally, I love the Serenity Prayer..."God please grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change...Courage to change those things I can, and Wisdom to know the difference."

The countdown is almost over for Vegas and I know you promised you would be a good girl...LOL! And like I read in Angel Pie's comment to you, we both expect you to report to us "every hour by the hour"...LOL! How come I get the feeling you'll be too busy having fun, fun, fun!!! We will certainly miss your Daily Word(s) but I guess you will have to make up for it when you return. I send you lots of Love, Hugs and Blessings to you and your family!


Letta(IbeLieve)   August 25th, 2010 11:58 pm ET

@Pixie Dust
Hi again my friend; Thank you as always. Glad that you are enjoying the post of the Daily word.

Yes, I am excited about my trip., I going to start packing tonight, Had to run around and do some last mins things, like get my nails done.(LOL), pick=up a few things and still need to do my hair which I can do tomorrow afternoon after treatment and all will be done. I will miss you all these four days and three nights, but as I start to be a good girl in Sin City LOL I will remember all my virtual friends. Thank you for caring Pixie Dust. Hope, that everyone celebrate Michael B'day on the blog Sunday as well......Love, Hugs, & Blessings....to you and family...Letta

@Angie Pie
My good friend....well I glad that you will do a daily word ...I have a book that I use everyday, but I have faith in you that you can post a daily word and people will love it. Remember what ever you do in "God's" word is still good. Yes, as I told Pixie time in rolling down and I cannot wait to get to Sin City, and let my hair down so to speak. LOL...see u later my friend......Love, Hugs, & Blessings to you ...Letta

@Nina
Love your post

@ Maria C. (August 25th – 9:54am) ~ I loved your comment and I agree wholeheartedly, my dear! Love creates Power. A smile and a little kindness shown goes a long way. Love and Hugs to you!

@ Marguerite ~ How are you my friend? I'm just wondering since I need to keep tabs on "Alice"...LOL! Love to you!


LoveConquersAll   August 26th, 2010 12:09 am ET

@ Angel Pie ~ Hello there, my friend. I read your comment to Letta about reporting in every hour by the hour...LOL! She might be just a tad bit busy to check in with us...LOL!

Hope you had a good day, my friend and I send you Love, Hugs and Blessings!


Marguerite   August 26th, 2010 12:13 am ET

LoveConquersAll- I am fantastic. How are you my friend? These blogs are a riot, it is the same ole same ole, nothing changes. I am Alice watching it all unfold and lmao as I do so. The more I think about it the more I feel these blogs would make one heck of a movie.rofl Love to you and yours!!!


Letta(IbeLieve)   August 26th, 2010 12:19 am ET

@LoveConquersAll
Hi my dear friend. I just had to say I love that part also ..."God please grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change...Courage to change those things I can, and Wisdom to know the difference." I say that all the time especially when I am over whem with much to do or with the grandkids driving me nuts.(but love them so much),,,but at time four out of five here all day can be very stressing trying to please everyone of them including my little seven month old Princess, I have her everyday. But I talk to my "Lord" constantly day and night.

Now, about keeping you and Angle Pie reports on every hour will be hard since i was advise not to bring my laptop with me.LOL It will be very hard to do unless I ran to my word every hour or brought the laptop with me as I go, hahahaha I do not see me doing that at all. Upon my return I will give a report of some of the fun I had but not sure if I become a mmmm you know kinda of bad person for a while, now you know that say "what done in vegas , stays in vegas".LOL But, I will try and keep account of all the fun to tell. Thank you very much for your post to me.....Love, Hugs, & Blessings to you and family...Keep the Faith...my dear!...Letta


LoveConquersAll   August 26th, 2010 12:35 am ET

@ Nina
I appeciate your August 25th – 1:36am reply to me. Nice post!

My thoughts are that one needs to practice tolerance, acceptance and understanding of others. You don't need 'experience' to understand feelings. If you want to be accepted – include others. Accept others – even if they or their beliefs and/or opinions are different from yours. There is a great value in learning from others.

If you want to be understood – offer understanding. Make an effort. One must Listen and Learn. Be educated. Take a moment to think that you might not always be 'right', and someone else might just have the experience to back up what they are saying. Always try to keep an open mind.


LoveConquersAll   August 26th, 2010 12:57 am ET

@ Marguerite ~ I'm a little tired but doing well, my friend. Thanks for asking. And yes, these blogs are quite interesting and would make a great movie (or soap opera)...LOL!!! Just in case, I am ready for my close-up...LOL!!! Memorizing my lines...LOL! Just sit back, wait and watch!

@ Letta ~ I say the Serenity Prayer numerous times myself. I can understand pleasing all of your grandchildren at one time can be tough but I know you must be one super grandmother who loves and spoils them all equally as grandmothers usually do. What can I say...Children, grandchildren are such a joy!

Now getting back to your trip, yes that's true, we did say that it would be a good idea to leave your laptop at home. So we will just count on you to give us details when you return. And you're right in saying, "What happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas." (If we happen to hear anything on the news about a woman named "Letta" and her escapades in Vegas, we will not believe one word...LOL!) Keep the Faith, Keep Smiling, and have yourself a marvelous time, my dear friend!


"Pixie Dust "   August 26th, 2010 1:00 am ET

LoveConquersAll,thank you for sharing your thoughts with us all.you made some great points on people needing to practice tolerance , acceptance and understanding of others, I agree 100 % with all what you stated.Have a wonderful evening.Love and smiles to you.

Goodnight, sweet dreams, Love and Smiles to all.


LoveConquersAll   August 26th, 2010 1:10 am ET

@ "Pixie Dust" ~ I am feeling a little tired as well so I am also going to call it a night. Have a peaceful sleep and sweet dreams, my friend...Love and Smiles I send right back to you!

Goodnight...Love and Peace to everyone!


Letta(IbeLieve)   August 26th, 2010 1:21 am ET

@LoveConquersAll
LOL....Now, that is a great and funny post. I really plan to have a marvelous time. Been looking forward o this for months and not let anything spoil it. Thank you for making laugh that I almost fell just laughing. I will try to stay off the news, they may not tell it straight. But, I will be living it up for the weekend especially on August 29th....Smiles. I did the same thing last year but on my B'day and my sisters rented a club and not music was allow to play but Michael the whole night I celebrated my day for his day. Now, I going ro really celebrate on Sunday, and may the Lord forgive me, because it falls on a sunday, and that is consider the Lord's Day, well just this one time I pray that he turns his back and forgive me because it is ON!LOL.....Love, Hugs, & Blessings to you and family...Keep the Faith...my dear!...Letta


Marguerite   August 26th, 2010 1:25 am ET

LoveConquersAll-- I wonder who they would get to play us.rofl I just hope who ever plays me has a sense of humor.lmao


nina1fox   August 26th, 2010 1:34 am ET

@ babycarie

I admire your unwritten ethical values. It would be nice to see more people utilizing them. However, having a blog about Michael is so much more than just talking about him or using his name. He was a man who was misunderstood and deeply hurt by others. He shared his pain, sadness, anger and hopes in his music and writings. He was a philanthropist as he loved the world and all in it. He was about the human condition. For this reason, our "blog rolls" are often about our hopes, aspirations, struggles and loss. I truly believe that Michael would have approved. You see, Carie, it is more than just mentioning his name or what he has done or those that have hurt him, it really is about the human condition in which we are all apart of. Regardless if we think he died or still alive somewhere, we all loved his music and his inspiration. He lives through us; as he has touched the heart and soul of every person on here. Understanding, tolerance and respect is what Michael would have wanted! His bright light will not be extinguished as long as there is one fan alive! – – Nina


LoveConquersAll   August 26th, 2010 1:37 am ET

Letta ~ Okay I am still here. Not quite ready for sleep I guess which is not good because I am feeling really tired. But enough about me. I'm so glad I made you laugh! And by all means, make sure you "live it up" and have the grandest time especially on Sunday...God knows what's in your heart and that your intentions are all well and good. So go ahead and remember our Michael because he is/was so special to us. August 29th will be hard for all of us and I miss him so very much but we must also remember to celebrate the "man", his message and his life. God Bless You, my dear friend...I am going to try to get some rest now. Love, Hugs & Blessings to you and your family as always. I already miss you! xo

@LCA

Your August 26 @ 12.35 post is not only beautiful but far reaching. You are absolutely correct. Stubbornness can interfere with keeping one's mind open to new ideas. Some of us need a little more time to process new information especially if it is considered "hot" emotionally or psychologically and our stubbornness sometimes serves as a means to allow for that amount of time needed. Acceptance is best achieved through understanding. They usually go hand and hand.

It is true, you do not need experience to understand anothers' feelings. When two people have experienced a similar or profound event, often the understanding is at a deeper level. An example of this would be, while men may empathize with women regarding child birth with an understanding of the feelings and pain, it helps if the other person is also a woman who has experienced delivery herself. At this level, words are unnecessary as the understanding is already formed.

Letta,! Please as Michael sang ..'enjoy yourself for me'..have a wonderful time,! Last yr around this time I was in Vegas for some work ,and it was my very first time there ,I do not gamble nor drink,but I had a ball! The Venetian was so wonderful ,the architecture amazing !
The people were friendly ,and I just really Loved it there!
Actually when we had dinner at the Winn,the table next to ours had just seen La Toya ,and they had nothing but Kind words and Love for the Jackson Family ,they remarked on how soft spoken and so polite she was,to anyone who went to greet her or asked of they could give her a hug. Hearing that alone,made my heart swell with pride for this wonderful family ,and all they have endured .
Now you Letta ,please take good care drink alot of fresh juices ,and dance for me ,because thats one of the things I Love to do !
Cant wait for your Vegas Report ! Love .Hugs always Maria C.


nina1fox   August 26th, 2010 11:27 am ET

@ LCA

Just a side note. Not everything is right or wrong, good or bad. Life is not a dichotomy. There are always shades of gray. What one perceives as a truth, may not be the other’s truth. What ‘is important’ ……. that the friends come together and discuss the differences instead of moving into defensives and shutting down. When one raises their ‘walls’ because they feel violated, they have shut out the other person and any possibility of resolution. Bringing up one’s “defenses” correlates to viewing the experience as a dichotomy and in essence saying… “I am right, you are wrong and I do not want to hear what you have to say”. In a disagreement both individuals have become inflexible and closed; thus, delineating all possibility of understanding and acceptance!


Kat   August 26th, 2010 8:36 pm ET

I must say Nina that was very well said and so true. I agree with you 100%. Thanks for stating all that.

Take care

I will miss you heaps you know that. Most of all I want you to have the best time with the celebration at hand and with everyone who will be joining you. Have a drink for me my friend......

Love you

This is what brings us together...Acceptance of one another, no matter what we believe. Learning to put in place a level of respect for each other. Agreeing to disagree, without all the hate. No one said, and it’s not written anywhere, we HAVE to agree on everything...goodness what a boring old world this would be if we did all agree LOL.

Thank you again

Love to you


babycarie   August 26th, 2010 9:06 pm ET

So, as I was posting, this blog is for Michael Jackson, and not for sentimental chit chat amongst yourselves. Michael was about keeping it real, and he hated to be used...and abusing his blogs is using him by using his place for personal chat roll.

Suzie
Yes...one with many names really has been on fire!!
And you and I seem to be targets...all for love!!


"Pixie Dust "   August 26th, 2010 9:35 pm ET

Letta(believe) Good evening,thank you once again for sharing the daily word with us all " Inner Peace." and the great quotes .Gee you really must be getting excited now,not long and you will be in Vegas,just a few hours away and you will be there., Yes we most certainly will be here on the blog Sunday to celebrate Michael's Birthday,I personally wouldn't miss it for the world.Have a great time In Vegas ,sweetie.I will be thinking of you.Sending Love and many Smiles to you.


LoveConquersAll   August 26th, 2010 10:15 pm ET

@ Marguerite (August 26th – 1:25am) ~ I agree. I wonder about that myself. Sense of humor is a MUST when playing our characters! Just remember I am sitting there right beside you. Could you please pass the popcorn...LOL!!!! Love and Laughs to you, my friend!!

@ Letta ~ Hello there. I know it is almost time for your exciting trip but I just wanted to say thank you for sharing the Daily Word on Inner Peace. These words are so very true. When we take our minds off of the problem and directly focus on the Divine presence within, it gives you a whole different perspective. Consciously or unconsciously we are all searching for "inner peace." It is the foundation of lasting happiness and satisfaction. On another note, I hope today was pleasant for you! You will be in my prayers and in my heart while you are away having lots of fun! God Bless You, my dear friend! Keep the Faith and Keep Smiling always!

@ Maria C. ~ Hello my sweet friend. Hope you are doing well. Loved reading your post to Letta. I think you, Angel Pie and myself along with many others on this blog cannot wait for her "Vegas Report" when she returns...LOL! Thanks also for sharing your experience when you vistied Vegas. How exciting! I hope someday I will get to go...One of these days!!!! Love and Hugs to you!!!

@ Kat ~ You're very welcome, my friend. That's exactly right. Granted it is probably easier said than done sometimes but it is so important to be able to listen and respect one another...Try to put aside our judgemental ways because there is so much we can learn from each other...Life everyday is an education in itself and the same holds true for all of us when we educate each other. It is how we grow and expand into the world. That's what makes the world so interesting and not boring...LOL! Thank you for your kind comment...Love to you!

@ Nina (August 26th – 11:27am) ~ Another well stated post, my friend! I concur with your comment. There are always shades of gray no matter what the situation if you are seeing things from an objective point of view. And yes, the perception of truths are different for each individual. I strongly believe communication is key along with the ability to keep an open mind and to listen effectively. A long dispute often means both parties are in the wrong because of the inability and stubbornness to pay attention and listen…Could also be an issue of pride. We use reason to justify our prejudices. The trouble is that the fools are sure and the learned have doubts. What’s interesting in itself is that only strong characters can be influenced, and the weak ones seem to know it all. Just my take for what its worth.
By the way, I admire and enjoy reading all of your comments!


"Pixie Dust "   August 26th, 2010 11:27 pm ET

Marguerite, & LoveConquersAll, how are you both doing this evening? I got quite the giggles when I read your posts to one another about the blogs making one heck of a movie. Yes they probably would.Just imagine these characters ( with a great sense of humor) sitting at their computers typing away,laughing so hard at times they fall off their chairs. ( giggle, giggle) May you both have a wonderful evening.Love and many Smiles to the both of you.


Letta(IbeLieve)   August 26th, 2010 11:48 pm ET

@Maria C., LoveConquersAll, Pixie Dust and Kat
Awww. Thank you for all your beautiful comments. I will have a blast no doubt about that it. Smiles..Sin City is the place. When I return home and settle down from all the fun, I will come and give a report of all that I did in order to have a blast. It warms my heart to see that many care and I happy to be among you all. Thank you………Love, Hugs, & Blessings….Keep the Faith….Letta


Marguerite   August 26th, 2010 11:56 pm ET

Pixie Dust- Ah but if it is made into a movie the characters in the movie would have to stay true to who they are portraying on the blogs. Love and smiles to you my friend.


Marguerite   August 27th, 2010 12:12 am ET

LoveConquersAll-- Here is some popcorn and soda to wash it down with. Love and laughter to you my friend.


"Pixie Dust "   August 27th, 2010 12:20 am ET

Marguerite, Oh of course,the characters in the movie would have to stay true to who they are portraying on the blogs.Yes, I was just referring to you and LoveConquersall. as you both stated a sense of humor is a must for whom played your characters.As for the rest of us well, that would cover all different kinds of characters.Have a great evening sweetie.Love and smiles right back to you.


LoveConquersAll   August 27th, 2010 12:25 am ET

@ "Pixie Dust" ~ I agree with Marguerite in that the "actors" would definitely have to stay true to the real person they are portraying on the blogs...That's for sure! I guess Marguerite and I will have to pick the actor after they do a screen test first...LOL!!! Did you see me fall out of my chair?? (LOL) Hope you have a wonderful evening as well, my friend. Love and Smiles I send right back at you!

@ Letta ~ You are very welcome. It is always a pleasure reading you and talking with you via this blog. We will all miss you the next few days. Have a safe trip, my friend. I send you a warm embrace and remember all of us will be celebrating with you (in spirit) on Michael's birthday. God Bless You and your family!


LoveConquersAll   August 27th, 2010 12:29 am ET

@ Marguerite ~ Thanks for the popcorn and the soda...One question, would that be Coca-Cola? (LOL)


"Pixie Dust "   August 27th, 2010 12:53 am ET

LoveConquersAll,gee no,of course I never saw you fall out of your chair.I just threw that in there,.You know all the ROFL., well okay that was Marguerite..Ha Ha.Yes.I agree you and Marguerite will have to pick the actor to portray your characters (Love) and ( Smiles)


"Pixie Dust "   August 27th, 2010 1:15 am ET

Marguerite   August 27th, 2010 1:18 am ET

LoveConquersAll- Of course it is a Coke, would I give a MJ fan anything else?lol

Pixie Dust-- You had me ROFL with that comment you made to LoveConquersAll.

Love and laughter to you both my friends.

If you are planning to go to Vegas for the meet and greet, please find Letta. She will be the point of contact. Due to some new medical issues, I will be unable to attend this year. I am heartbroken, because I was so looking forward to being there. Please get in contact with Letta when you get there and please most of all have tons of fun and celebrate Michael's birthday and I will be there in thought and heart.

Much Love

Letta(IbeLieve)   August 27th, 2010 5:47 am ET

@Angle Pie, LoveConquersAll, Rhonda, Ibelieve25, Lois48, Pixie Dust, Marg., Maria C., .Maura, Nina and my long lost friend Mr. A, anyone else I forgot Happy frieday to you all of you. Well, yes I am still awake this early am, cannot sleep the night before I get on an airplane, but will be sleep before the plane takes off the ground.(LOL) I hope that everyone will have a blessed weekend and enjoy posting comments on Sunday for Michael Birthday, I cannot wait to read the blog when I get back Monday, sometime that evening. Well, before I leave here is a daily word for this morning. I try posting it earlier but the mods deleted it. I pray they let this one post. So until Monday here you go.
"Guidance"
Divinely guided, I move forward with confidence.
Throughout each day, I have the opportunity to make many choices. From the friends I choose to the thoughts I think–everything is a choice, a manifestation of the unlimited possibilities before me.
As I prepare for an activity, I turn to God in prayer and give thanks for guidance and inspiration in making choices. I call on the inner resources at the core of my being to respond to any situation.
Although in any given moment it might appear that my choices are limited, I know this is an illusion created by my narrow human view. With spiritual eyes, I see infinite possibilities, and I make each choice with confidence and peace.
For the Lord will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being caught.–Proverbs 3:26
Love, Hugs, & Blessings to All of you....Letta

Some seem to have short memories, or is it selective memories.
Many, many have used this blog as a means to communicate to other online friends what may be happening in their personal life. But they also speak of the subject at hand (article posted), they speak of all of what MJ has achieved, and they speak of what his messages to the world are. Unfortunately some also use this blog to trash not only other bloggers, but MJ and his family. This is unacceptable and I’m sure this would be what MJ disapproves of. In my opinion, Mr Jackson would be happy for his fans to blog here. People uniting, sharing real stories about their real life. I thought this is what Mr Jackson enjoyed hearing about…peoples real lives. Those who wish to do this I say continue.

Do as I say, not as I do, seems to be the mentally of some. Hypocrisy is what I call it.

One should examine oneself for a very long time before thinking of condemning others. ~Moliere

@ Mr A

Wishing you and your family a wonderful weekend. Come Sunday what will you toast MJ’s birthday with….water, juice, a good wine….or will be that beetshake I cannot bring myself to try….lol. Whatever the drink, we celebrate united.

Take care my friend

Love to you

Beautifully stated.

Michael’s primary goal was to help heal the world. And in some ways, CNN is helping to facilitate this effort with the blog. Healing comes in many forms. It usually starts with sharing, expressing, learning from others, and then finally trusting….. This blog serves that purpose.

Babycarie

In many ways, this blog site is our mirror, our way to connect and heal together. Michael lives on in the hearts of everyone here. Just because his name is not mentioned, has no bearing on the love that is pervasive here. The love flows like the tides of the ocean, gently encompassing you with love…..

@ LCA

You certainly have vision and clarity of thought! The admiration is mutual. Communication is absolutely vital in all relationships along with tolerance and understanding.

Your statement of: “I strongly believe communication is key along with the ability to keep an open mind and to listen effectively” Is so accurate, it is profound. Especially due to the internet’s potential for illusion, communication is even more vital. Stubbornness and pride are defense mechanisms and often allows us to keep the perceptions we want to hold on to. It also allows us to hold on to our justification for our prejudices. Regardless of age and/or education, we still have a lot to learn about ourselves and life. Not having the willingness to re-examine one’s behaviors especially when a conflict occurs can be attributed to fear more than being foolish or ignorant. Likewise, pride often is an over-compensation for fear…fear of being wrong…fear of getting close… fear of trusting…..

No offense taken! One must always try to remain open to another’s input. Your postings are not only insightful but very valuable. I appreciate your wealth of knowledge and keen perceptions.

Rhonda,I am so sorry things didn't work out for you for you to go to the meet and greet in Vegas with Letta.Hopefully you will be here on the blog Sunday and we can celebrate Michael's birthday together.Yes Vegas would be a blast,maybe could make plans for next year and a bunch of us could go.I would love to go myself,I am not a gambler nor a drinker.but I know I would have a blast especially in the company of such beautiful people,like you,Letta,Maria C,Marguerite,Loverconquersall.and all the others. Take care and have a wonderful evening Rhonda, Love and smiles to you.

@ Marguerite ~ Hello there...I figured you would be passing me a Coca Cola since we are all MJ fans, how could I think otherwise...LOL!
Always appreciate the humor! Much Love to you, my friend!

@ "Pixie Dust" ~ You never know the way Marguerite makes me laugh, I might accidentally fall out of my chair every now and then...LOL! I better get a chair secured with seatbelts...LOL! Have a wonderful evening...Sending you love, SMILES and Hugs, my friend!

@ Mr. A. ~ Thinking of you still and I hope you have a great weekend spent with family and friends. Hopefully you visit with all of us real soon because you're missed so much. Much Love!!!

@ Rhonda ~ I'm sorry to hear that you could not attend the meet and greet in Vegas, my friend. But we will all be here for each other on Sunday to celebrate Michael's birthday. It is always a pleasure talking with you and all of the other special friends I have met on this blog. Many Blessings and Love I send your way!


"Pixie Dust "   August 27th, 2010 11:00 pm ET

LoveConquersAll, yes It might be a good idea to get a chair with a seatbelt and fasten yourself in, unless you like to ROFL,like Marguerite,ha,ha. Have a wonderful evening sweetie,love,smiles and hugs right back to you my friend.


LoveConquersAll   August 27th, 2010 11:39 pm ET

@ Nina (August 27th – 2:13pm) ~ Thank you very kindly for your compliment. It is very much appreciated. I honestly feel your comments to be just as knowledgable and valuable.

Your statement of: "Regardless of age and/or education, we still have a lot to learn about ourselves and life"...This is so true. Life, to me, is an education every single day if we choose to pay attention and open our eyes to what is happening around us. There is so much to be learned from each other and life. Just having the willingness to re-examine ourselves is the initial step to self-discovery. It invites us to shape our internal world and take time to reflect on who we want to be in terms of ideas and values. When we are faced with some sort of conflict, whether it be pride or fear preventing us from truly listening and learning, that's when we need to utilize those core values within us by practicing respect, understanding, patience, tolerance, compassion, empathy, and most of all, L.O.V.E....Believe me, I know this is not as easy as it may sound but it certainly is worth a try especially if we want to restore peace in our relationships and in our world. Take Care, my friend.

One more thing I'd like to add...Thank you for sharing one of Michael's quotes in your August 27th – 12:01pm post to "Kat". It happens to be my favorite one!

“In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe." – Michael Jackson


LoveConquersAll   August 27th, 2010 11:48 pm ET

@ "Pixie Dust" ~ Now, after reading your message, I am ROFL because I am having this mental thought of Marguerite and I trying to keep a straight face and type while on the floor...LOL! Not a good thought, I suppose...but a funny one! Actually Letta sent a message (August 27th – 1:32am) to "Mr. A" asking if I could borrow his chair since it is well-equipped with seatbelts...But somehow I have feeling he is not going to lend it out...LOL! I can't say I blame him either...LOL!


"Pixie Dust "   August 28th, 2010 12:27 am ET

LoveConquersAll,oh gee I was almost ROFL too with your comment, i sure do hope you have a cordless keyboard, actually i think a laptop would come in handy.,you could just sit on the floor and no worries of falling out of your chair.Hmm, maybe that is what Marguerite uses is a laptop,With all the ROFL.. do you think we should recommend Marguerite to get a chair with a seatbelt as well.,I don't recall her ever stating she fell out of her chair.,just the ROFL. (Smiles)


Nina Fox   August 28th, 2010 1:09 am ET

I am sorry to hear of your disappointment. I hope you will be feeling better soon. The path of Life is always filled with little road blocks. Often, this quote helps me and hope it will do the same for you, Rhonda.

@ "Pixie Dust" ~ You're right, my dear. I don't think Marguerite ever stated that she fell out of her chair, thank God none of us have for that matter...LOL! Maybe she does have a laptop and never needs to worry and sits on the floor...LOL! I have to admit that the thought of having a special chair with all the "bells and whistles" (and yes, even the seatbelts) would be really fascinating...LOL! Smiles to you as well!


Nina Fox   August 28th, 2010 1:21 am ET

@LCA

As always, very insightful and filled with wisdom. When one values friendships with a high level of regard, any conflict calls for re-examining one's behaviors. Recently I have been in reflection so much, I am beginning to feel like Mirror lake or possibly woman in the mirror ~whew~ (lol) One is never too old to listen and learn. Enjoying your humorous posts too!

@ Nina (August 28th – 1:21am)

“Laughter is the brush that sweeps away the cobwebs of your heart and sparks the soul”...Glad you enjoyed my humor in my previous posts!

Self-reflection is also good for the soul and it sounds as though you have been doing just that...LOL! The fact is that we all have beliefs, ideas, thoughts and attitudes which govern our thinking, our knowing and our living. Changing our way of thinking, our long held beliefs can dramatically change our daily lives.

It is good to hold the friendships in one's life with a high level of regard. When confronted with conflict, if we see that our negative feelings towards others are reflecting back to ourselves and our own sense of negativity, then we can do something to help ourselves forward. And I do agree, one is never too old to listen and learn.

Changing our perception of the problem by seeing the reality as it is reflected by us and to us, brings empowerment, change, discovery and consciousness. As we learn to look for that reflection in the mirror rather than to project our senses outwards, we gain a sense of responsibility for our own lives. Our authentic self begins to "shine" through.

"There are two ways to "shine"...You can be the candle or, the mirror that reflects it."


LoveConquersAll   August 30th, 2010 11:24 pm ET

@ Maria C. ~ Hello there, my friend. I agree with your post that there were so many touching comments made in honor of Michael's Birthday. Yes, yesterday was hard for all of us but together we did cry "happy" tears remembering our beloved Michael. I also hope that the peace and love remain here because it is so important to be living proof of Michael's vision and hope. We can make a difference and set good examples for his sake. The torch will forever be passed so Michael's light can shine through all of our hearts. I send you plenty of Love, Hugs and Blessings!

@ "Pixie Dust", Rhonda, ibelieve25, Letta, Lois48, Marguerite, Helen, Rebeka, Jessie, Angel Pie, Tatiana, Tay, Kat, Butterfly (I hope I did not leave anyone out, please forgive me if I did for it was not intentional)...

@Angle Pie
@LoveConquersAll
Good Morning not sure if you still reading this blog but I will would for you to continue reading the daily words that I was not able to post since I was away for the weekend. So, I am not sure that you still reading this blog but here goes. Enjoy my friends and everyone else also,
Saturday:
Grace
God's grace strengthens and renews me.
Life seems to throw us curve balls every once in awhile. I may face unexpected challenges for which I feel unprepared. In these moments, I turn to God.
The grace of God is available to me whenever and wherever I need it. This powerful gift of divine support calms me, comforts me and lifts my spirits. God gives me the strength and courage to face and prevail through life's changes and challenges. As I pray, grace fills the empty spaces in my heart or in my life. I am one with the Creator–supported by infinite love.
Guided by the still small voice within, I choose to live an empowered life. With clarity, creativity, vigor and flexibility, I gracefully move through life's experiences.
The grace of the Lord Jesus be with you.–1 Corinthians
Sunday::
Prosperity
I live in an abundant universe.
I give freely, not only of my financial resources, but also of my time, energy and love. I share from my willingness and eagerness to bless others. Whether I recycle gently-used household items, spend time tutoring a child, or volunteer to assist someone in need, I am giving from my heart. I receive the blessings of joy, satisfaction and gratitude as soon as I give to another.
As I give and receive, I realize that material possessions do not define prosperity. Prosperity is a mind-set, a consciousness, a knowing that everything we need is already supplied. My giving opens the way for God's blessings to circulate. I give from the knowledge that I live in an abundant universe.
The point is this: the one who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the one who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.–2 Corinthians 9:6
Monday
Faith
My faith is deep and abiding. I am forever one with God.
Faith is the foundation on which I stand. I nurture my faith with consistent prayer time and study of Scripture and other sources of inspiration. I remain open and receptive to the Christ spirit within.
If, momentarily, my faith feels shaky, I look back to a time when my faith felt strongest. I recapture the feelings of joy and peace in knowing my oneness with God. It may help to visit a special place where I find inspiration or call a friend who will help me stand firm. I may spend more time in meditation and prayer to renew my faith.
I am grateful for every experience that strengthens my faith and for the times that I trust God in all that I do. I am strong, and my faith is unshakable.
Keep alert, stand firm in your faith, be courageous, be strong.–1 Corinthians 16:13
Love, Hugs, U blessings to you ALL.......Letta
Unity
United we stand – Divided we Fall

@ LCA

You are very perceptive, LCA. This depth seems to come from time spent in thought, evaluation and acute awareness. We all view the world in different shades of gray due to our individual uniqueness most often based from our world life experiences whether first or second hand along with our ability to organize and understand them. Because our world is in a continual state of flux, hopefully one remains flexible enough to incorporate a new paradigm. For this to occur, self and world evaluation along with remaining open is needed! Often due to our insecurity, we become rigid about our views and perceptions of life as it is 'safe' The real challenge is to live on the edge of your reality by inviting the reality of others into your being with some variances of blending. Like water, remaining flexible and open for movement into different directions is the true form of enlightenment. It is not a destination but a process always evolving, changing, altering. Humor is not only incredibly self healing but also healing for those around you.

Often conflict arises due to a paradoxical belief system resulting in a false dichotomy.
The importance is for both to examine and take responsibility for their part and look for solutions. A true and valued relationship takes the work and responsibility of both parties. Calmness of the spirit and mind creates the ability to look beyond oneself and into the beauty and wonders of others....like walking from the darkness into the light....in awe and with an open heart. Our greatest vision is through our open heart.

LCA, I am deeply indebted and very much enjoy this interaction. And because of this, I would like to continue on.....However, I will be flying out tonight to Korea and then on to China for a month. I am not sure if I can connect to CNN or even obtain access to the internet. Another one of life's learning experiences in which one enjoys the experience of unknowns daily. Its an excellent stretch to one's being and ego. :~)

So gifted and filled with beauty ... may this day bring you joy, that will transcend you beyond physical pain into a place of wonder, to the candle that shines bright within your heart. - Nina

@ Nina (September 2nd – 3:45am) ~ Well, hello there, my friend. Since you will be away for a while, I am not sure if you will be able to read this post - I will send this to you anyway and we'll see what happens...

First and foremost, I pray that you have a safe trip to Korea and China. This sounds like a fabulous journey...especially when venturing out into life's unknown experiences! I do wish you well.

Thank you for your reply to me. You are very kind. I must say that you certainly have a keen sense of awareness and profound insight.

As I read your comment, I'd like to add that it is definitely true that we all view the world differently. I believe it is based on how we were raised...i.e., our structured values and belief system. In other words, what we were taught to believe and analyze, a learned behavior. This essentially creates how we proceed with our ability to process information, organize and understand it. I also concur with your thought on how the world is constantly changing. It is vital that we, ourselves, can adapt and have that flexibility to keep up with the "changing times." A real awesome concept would be to try and project an outcome ahead of time in one's train of thought so as to be prepared and ready for anything.

I am all for keeping an open mind and an open heart in order to be able to accept the reality of others into my state of being. Like your comparison to water, I am open for movement in whatever direction life may carry me...Knowing it is not a set course to arrive at... but rather an ever-changing course and/or path to enlightment. (Which, by the way, I love being enlightened...and YOU, my friend, certainly give this to me...and for that, I am the one who is truly "indebted" to you!)

Now to touch on the topic of "conflict"...Again, I wholeheartedly agree with you. Since it does have a lot to do with one's instilled belief system. The problem usually stems from one's stubborness where both parties refuse to admit that each one brings something to the argument which fuels the conflict even more. What you stated was right on: "calmness of the spirit and mind creates the ability to look beyond oneself and into the beauty and wonders of others." If each party would stop, listen attentively, expand their thought process, maybe, just maybe, there would be a golden opportunity to learn something from each other. Keep an Open Heart and an Open Mind...So much Truth to another great thought you stated: "Our greatest vision is through our open heart."

I think I have said enough for this evening. I do have to "brace myself" since my area is expecting to be hit with Hurrican Earl tomorrow afternoon into the evening hours. It is heading straight for the East Coast in the US where I reside...I do pray that it passes over us. Not sure if I will have internet access myself tomorrow. I will leave it in God's hands and hope and pray for the best.

Enjoy your time away..."Your excellent stretch to one's being and ego..." :~) (LOL) As for me, I will seek out and hope that I find that "place of wonder"...while the candle in my heart sheds light on my path as to guide me.

You're in my thoughts...Hope to talk to you soon. Until then...God Bless and Much Love to you!

@LCA

First and foremost, thank you for such beautiful and insightful blogs. You bless the MJ site with your wisdom and knowledge. Thank you for your concens. it shows your kindness and inner beauty. Connecting to American sites from China, is very problematic; which I prever not to venture into at this point in time.

Yes, I completely agree, that our childhood is the lens in which we often view the world through for the rest of our lives. Like a camera, it can be always out of focus in which the world is a blur, or sharpened in which one can see clearly and all the in betweens. It can be altered with a lot of work and help.

I support your statement about future predictions so one is prepaired. It is often difficult to predict future evets; however, being prepaired is an excellent concept.

LCA I wish I could comment more but I seem t0 be booted off cnn while typing this response 4 times. It is extremely difficult to stay on an American site. Therefore, I must end this before I am booted again. thank you for such a delightful interaction

Maria C
thank you for your kind compliment and graciousness. It is an excellent indication of your depth and profound kindness.

Nina from china


LoveConquersAll   September 12th, 2010 3:07 pm ET

@ Nina

What a pleasant surprise in receiving and reading your reply. I honestly did not expect that you would have the capability of responding for a while considering your whereabouts right now. I certainly consider myself fortunate that I have received this message as I do understand how connecting to an American site, such as CNN, can be difficult from China. I also agree that it is not something that you should venture into at the present time.

With all that being said...What I will say is that I am both relieved and happy that you arrived at your destination(s) safely. I hope your trip to Korea was an enjoyable and successful visit, at that. Did you happen to visit North or South Korea? I ask because Seoul, South Korea is a beautiful place, so I've heard. I was just wondering where these "excellent stretch's to your being and ego" adventures may be taking you...LOL!

Well, I sincerely hope that you will be able to retrieve and read this post...not only due to the distance factor but also because I am just not sure how long Larry King blogs will be in existence with Mr. King's upcoming retirement. Some say it will be the end of the blogs altogether. This would be very sad indeed. Although "virtual", I have made the nicest friends via these blogs in the last several months. I only started participating on the MJ blogs on June 25, 2010 after just basically reading all the posts and keeping silent prior to that. I felt compelled to join in this year on Michael's one year anniversary of his passing. I felt and could see the outpouring of L.O.V.E shared between his loving fans on this blog. Never meeting any one of them face-to-face, their heartfelt words reflected genuine adoration and affection towards Michael, rightfully so. I have to admit there have been a select few on the MJ blogs that have been hard to read because of their ability to communicate hurtful words and thoughts towards others...instead of simply practicing tolerance, understanding and respect. If they could just focus all of that energy towards loving and showing compassion to each other, this blog would be in perfect harmony. If we cannot get along on a simple blog, what's it going to be like out "there" in the world? After all, Michael's message was about L.O.V.E...It is this one virtue that he exemplified in every aspect of his life. I will always love him with an unconditional, unselfish kind of love.

Forgive me for being too long-winded this evening. I am not sure if you will be reading this at all but there's always hope. I've never met you but I like the way you think...Your words speak of wisdom, knowledge, worldliness...mixed with kindness and genuine compassion and understanding. I appreciate you and I thank you for this most charming interaction.

Take Care...

nina1fox   September 15th, 2010 1:10 am ET

Good Morning LCA

Ah, second time I have been kicked off. We will try this again. Thank you for the kind and beautiful response. I look forward to your posts. It is seldom one experiences a person who is always kind, considerate and generous with their posts. What a wonderful Hallmark you possess. I was wondering, you mentioned that you were compelled to start posting on the 1 year anniversary of MJ death. Is there a specific cause or reason for this? You stated that you seem to see the love on this blog site except for a select few. Do you really see it as love or just a word of expression in order to belong? Often love is expressed through actions, not just writing it. Even though you have expressed a lot of philosophy, you are still an anomaly as I have a difficult time picturing you in my mind. You seem careful with your words in relation with your identity and I respect your desire for privacy. I apologize if I am being intrusive. Your understanding of pain and trust leads me to believe you have had personal experiences with both of the aforementioned. Even with these experiences you want to carry the word of love. I hope your life is truly filled with hope and joy.

I am more cynical and do not believe blindly in “LOVE” I feel the word has often been over used in order to achieve a desired affect which borders on a selfish side. Michael was a humanitarian who deeply cared for this planet and all the living organisms within it. If people were true followers of Michael, I would think they would get out and volunteer to help at whatever level they are capable, instead of writing the world LOVE over and over day in and day out. Again, I come from more of a cynical point of view, and strongly feel actions speak louder than words……and possibly some actually take part in working towards a goal for the betterment of this planet. I am very dissatisfied with myself and my complacency in the act of volunteering. I pushed to volunteer in the Gulf oil spill earlier this year, and when my job was on the line, I backed down like a coward. I am not happy with myself and projecting that on to others is also a possibility. It is complicated to analyze one’s self, objectively.

My visit was to Seoul, South Korea; however, my residence is only 100+ miles from the capitol of North Korea. I am the only English speaking person in town and have embraced the traditional Chinese culture. Behind where I live, you walk back in time 500 years as they live in little stone built homes, dirt floors, outside bathrooms ….. but all have a smile on their face. It makes one wonder……………


LoveConquersAll   September 15th, 2010 11:14 pm ET

@ Nina

Good Evening. I must say that I was not expecting to receive a reply from you so soon…But it is a welcomed surprise. I appreciate the kind compliments you gave me. I am sorry you find me difficult to picture in your mind because I am, according to your words, an anomaly.

I am somewhat perplexed as to the probing into whether there was a “specific cause or reason” for me to join this blog upon the first anniversary of MJ’s death. All I can say is that I felt in my own heart, while reading the loving comments, pure and simple LOVE. I truly did. No doubt “love” is a difficult thought, feeling, virtue, and emotion to define. What is LOVE to one person may be different for another depending on where their chosen path in life has taken them. Now I am pondering what exactly is LOVE? Love can be a feeling directed at someone which acknowledges their goodness. It may very well be described as the willful intent to serve the well being of another.

There is no way of really knowing or examining anyone’s true feelings especially when we are all sitting at a computer typing words. As I read every comment, I set out believing and wanting to feel as though all the words were “heartfelt” and sincere. I always try to keep an open mind and heart and give someone the benefit of the doubt. Sometimes the words can be so transparent where you can recognize the difference between an attention-seeker, a person filled with inner rage and anger, or someone who just wants to criticize and belittle someone to boost their own ego. All I know is how I feel. I try to LOVE, respect and treat everyone the same. What possessed me to participate on this blog (which happens to be officially my first) was the fact that I wanted to express my feelings about Michael. I wanted to share them with others who understood. I know what’s in my heart. I listen to my heart. I may not be right all the time but I trust in myself and I trust in God. That’s all I need to know.

My purpose was not to have to defend myself or explain the depth of love that I feel. I agree with you that “Actions do speak louder than words”....I not only utilize the word “LOVE” on paper, I give it and show it every day of my life and don’t say another word about it. As far as a blog is concerned, there is no way of truly knowing what a person does beyond the words of LOVE that they so easily profess or write over and over again. Moreover, one cannot see simply from a blog whether or not a person actually “walks their talk”. This blog is about Michael Jackson but it is also about the human condition that we are all a part of. I may not share much in the way of my hopes, aspirations, struggles or losses on this blog…mainly because I am a private person. And yes, I do choose my words carefully. I hurt, I cry, I have feelings just like everyone else. I try to treat others the way I want to be treated. That isn’t always reciprocated in life, unfortunately.

Things happen to all of us in life to make the “trust” barrier break down. I believe we all, as humans, have experienced both pain and trust issues at one time or another in our lives. With these experiences, I know it is so difficult to rebuild and restore that strong belief and faith you once had in LOVE. Life is filled with deceptive people who sometimes have ulterior motives to satisfy their own needs, that goes without saying. To me, those people were done some wrong in their past and could never let it go. So they go through life treating others the way they only know how in order to get by. It’s not good when one happens to be on the receiving end of it though.

I know you stated that you have a cynical point of view when it comes to “love” and the actions behind the word itself. I do agree that volunteering one’s time for a cause greater than themselves measures one’s depth of love in the true sense of the word. Sometimes as much as we’d like to take the opportunity our situations in life do not allow us to freely do so. So we have to act upon our love in other ways. I do sense the deep disappointment you feel about yourself in your words. And for that, I am sorry. Please try and remember that we are all imperfect beings and we have to look past our negative thoughts and see the beautiful person inside each and every one of us filled with good intentions. “True” Love seeks the happiness, well being and respect for yourself first before you can freely give it to someone else.

After all the rambling on I have done, I still believe in LOVE. I do hope that you find (or have found) happiness and contentment in your own life. It’s wonderful that you have embraced the Chinese culture. I can only imagine the experience of expanding one’s horizons in life and discovering that there is a big world out there. Where you live now I wonder if this is your permanent residence? I do apologize if I am being intrusive now. To think about the conditions on which they live in stone built homes, dirt floors and outside bathrooms but yet they still manage to have a smile on their faces is astonishing. We take so much for granted when there are countless people around the world who only know what little they have in front of them but still it is enough to satisfy their souls and bring them happiness with the simplest things. It goes to show that there are so many valuable lessons to learn about life.


babycarie   September 16th, 2010 10:02 am ET

How can anyone profess love and understanding of loss and pain in our own lives yet deny Michael's death?? He was only human, but was not an evil deceiver...and he showed the world real love through actions. Death like love and laughter and pain is a part of life, it is not a belief. Michael was allowed to die on the stage he so loved while everyone around him just saw money...think of the inner pain he suffered throughout his life. This bloggy and all Michael bloggys are for Michael an not ourselves. Email, Facebook, Twitter...there are many ways to speak intimately without abusing Michael's place.
The only attention seekers here are those who have this insatiable need to mock Michael and his death and ignore Katherine's loss.


nina1fox   September 17th, 2010 8:04 am ET

Good Evening LCA

Thank you again for the very gracious and uplifting blog. Inquisitiveness was the driving force behind the inquiry about the timeline you decided to blog. Nothing more. I guess it helps me to understand you a little more. I certainly concur in which love is experienced and seen differently by each individual. The global conceptualization is common to everyone; however, due our own uniqueness based on our entire life experiences creates a vast space between one experience of love and another’s’.

The internet can certainly create an anomaly for a multitude of reasons. Like you, I think most comments people make are what they are experiencing at that moment in time which could change in 5 minutes. Then, we have those few, for what ever reason; enjoy games in which the computer is the perfect setting. It is difficult and takes a lot of energy and time to tease out the difference and I have found it is just better to move on then to try to figure out the reason behind the person’s actions, while on the computer. If that person wants to play games, so be it and we always have the choice of interacting. In real life, to understand the reason behind behaviors and actions of others helps with understanding, acceptance and tolerance of that particular person. If a person is playing a game and you understand the reason behind their games as they are afraid of getting close for example, then one can accept the other person’s game as they have an understanding and empathy for that other person. Behaviors and actions are important; however, the underlying motive is even more imperative. If one is playing a game out of spite and wanting to hurt or control others is quite different than one who plays a game out of fear.

Sometimes one can see the difference between ‘an attention-seeker’, a person filled with inner rage and anger, or someone who just wants to criticize and belittle someone to boost their own ego. All of the aforementioned most often result from low self esteem. Again, if we can understand the motive, then tolerance will be available. Why empower the aforementioned individuals by reacting to them? Why not build in tolerance that they are doing the best they know at this moment in time and be very thankful you are not there? When we react strongly to another person’s perceived bad behaviors, it is most often because we can see a part of ourselves in that person and do not like it; hence, the over reaction. Also putting another down in order to build ones ego could be derived out of hurt, pain or jealousy. When we understand the motive, tolerance is available.

I do not know of a person who has not regretted something they did usually to another person, during their life. Those who struggle with self forgiveness are usually more sensitive than those that can just ‘blow’ it off. Highly sensitive people struggle with theirs and others behaviors both past and present. That does not translate in to treating people poorly. When we pass judgment on another person, aren’t we doing what we do not like in them? Being on the receiving end of a broken trust can be difficult. When one has the capacity of forgiveness, a bridge can be rebuilt if you value that other person. Never throw out the baby with the bath water. People are human and make mistakes…… Usually resulting from miss-communication and lack of information provided; whereby, the other person starts to make assumptions to fill the gap. To establish a strong and healthy friendship bond, both parties need to be honest and forthcoming. That will certainly help decrease being misunderstood. Often, people can identify with others who have been misunderstood, Like Michael Jackson, often feel misunderstood which results in their lack of transparency. Being transparent has its ‘trust’ risks; however, are we willing to go through life in hiding? That would be tragic. All should be taken into consideration. The amount of time with good communication as well as the bad incident. If one places a high value on friendships, and that person was important, why would one want to throw it all away? Some people have many friends; so the loss of one friend does not have much impact, and some people have few friends in which the loss of one good friend is a very high price to pay….the loss is a symbolic death!

The place I am residing started as an investment since I knew our housing would soon be flushed down the toilet; however, my ideas and thoughts are changing due to the culture and people. My fear is that this place will change as Intel just built the world’s largest microchip manufacturing plant 10 miles from here and there is talk about building a motion picture studio in this town. No one in this town can speak English; however, the communication is enjoyable and developing the charades (pantomime) skills is a lot of fun. (lol)

Thank You LCA for such enjoyable blogs. I always look forward to reading yours.
Nina

Yes, Carie, Michael died. However. I do not judge others who believe he is still alive. It’s a belief system just like religion. Some people believed Christ was the son of god, other believe he was just a man and others believe he never existed.


LoveConquersAll   September 19th, 2010 11:38 am ET

@ Nina ~

Hello there. So tell me, how is your progress in the development of pantomime skills coming along…LOL! Sounds like a bit of challenge but I am quite certain it must be fun! Likewise, I am always looking forward to reading your posts and I thank you for the very kind compliments. I truly do.

I just want to start by acknowledging the fact that I am aware that this blog is about Michael Jackson and my intention is not to take the focus off of him. I miss him terribly. I, like countless others, have grown to discover the “man” behind the entertainer. I admit I have always loved the “superstar” but now I love Michael, the human being…the man with a heart that beats, a soul that loves unconditionally, and a desire and purpose to restore mankind for the better pushing the human race forward…The mark of pure genius. I am filled with sincere gratitude for the joy he brought into all of our lives in spite of all he had to endure. The saddest part is being misunderstood. Believing in Love and wanting to express it innocently but yet be judged by narrow-minded people, is heart-wrenching. He was crucified by the public and, even though he was exonerated, I ask myself was he ever really “exonerated” in his own life? I can’t imagine or fathom how “beat-up” he must have felt emotionally, spiritually and physically. I just wish I could take all of this pain and anguish he felt away. And I am sure I am not alone in that feeling. Please know that these are not just words, I wholeheartedly mean what I say.

You can’t change the past but you certainly can change the future…I will always love him deeply.

I understand the basis of your “inquisitiveness” from your previous comment and I appreciate your honest reply. Although I strongly agree with you about the Internet creating an anomaly, I sincerely hope that you have a somewhat clearer picture in your mind about me based on what I shared (even if it was very little). I really wish I had the time to analyze and decipher the meaning of what is written in one’s comments…whether or not they are pure and honest truth or just simply, “words” in order to fit in or belong. My feeling is, if you choose to interact via the Internet, one would have to at least practice tolerance, understanding and acceptance because it is, essentially, an illusion.

I concur with your thought process on recognizing the difference between “an attention-seeker”, a person filled with inner rage and anger, or someone who want to “bully” and belittle someone…All behaviors acting as a result of one’s low self-worth and/or self-esteem. It is true that if we can break it down to the underlying motive, that’s when tolerance would be exercised.

Shift to another paradigm, a way of seeing the world, when one learns how to control their environment. This involves either changing one’s thoughts and beliefs which changes their outer experience; or consciously project energy then intend that the energy take a particular reality. For instance, if you were to bless a space with love or peace and it seemed to work. The only snag with this method is you’re forever opposing other thoughts and beliefs. The moment the energy has dissipated, it’s back to the old environment. It was a waste of time. The only way we can achieve peace is to be an example of it and create a space for tranquility wherever we go. In that space nothing can touch us. We could be in a negative environment, perhaps an internet blog, even one that is aggressive and be untouched by it. We can accept these individuals as they are…therefore exercising Tolerance and Understanding. What usually happens is that the environment is naturally transformed to mirror our example. Hence, patience and tolerance is taught.

Your thoughts on self-forgiveness were so accurate. Those who struggle with self-forgiveness are usually more sensitive than those who simply shrug it off. I believe that sensitive people are extremely conscientious. We have all made disastrous decisions in our lifetimes and I am sure that there may be some regrets that are attached to those decisions. One cannot let these past decisions affect them. The energy that is attached to your regrets will encompass any of your future choices and will assure the same type of results. Letting go of such regrets will allow you to move forward by giving yourself a level of self-forgiveness.

I also believe that in order to establish a strong and healthy bond of friendship, both parties do, indeed, have to be honest and forthcoming. There has to be a level of understanding between the two parties so as not to have any misunderstandings or misconceptions of one another. Again, communication is key. Listening effectively while your partner is communicating is part of a learning process for both. Everyone wants to feel accepted, and we're not exceptions. Being misunderstood smacks of unfairness. Someone has judged us without knowing all the facts, or from deliberately ignoring our point of view. When one has experienced the unfortunate feeling of being misunderstood and finds another person who shares the experience, then you both find yourself on the same wavelength. You talk the same language. You cherish the same truths. Our need to reach out to each other becomes more apparent. As for friendships, I do place a high value on each and every one of them…whether few or many.

Sorry this is so long. I know I went off on a tangent and for that, I probably bored you to tears. On another note, it certainly sounds like your place of residence will soon have a lot more activity with the microchip plant and a motion picture studio…That part sounds exciting! Anyhow, I will quiet my thoughts now while you continue “brushing up” on your communication skills…LOL! By the way, I love charades…LOL!

Take Care…

OMG I can feel the love all the way down the my poor little toes as they curl up with joy happiness and love. Unfortunately, I am traveling around a bit right now and on another friends computer which does not like English. Therefore, this will be a quick reply until I can obtain a computer that has a little more love !!!!!

I believe you have these feelings in relation to the desire of taking away his pain and anguish. Unfortunately, life is just not fair. He is one of countless people who have been treated horribly. There is truly a very loving and nurturing side within you. . It feels almost like you were horrbly misunderstood and treated poorly and possibly taking away his pain helps you to let go of yours. Its just a feeling I am experiencing now...

still struggling with this darn computer...

I would like to strike some of the previous posts and start over again. Working on a computer with Chinese as the default language, distracted my focus and it was not exactly what I wanted to express to you. I am now on my laptop and can focus my attention on what you said and not struggling with a computer.

First and foremost, I wanted to express my gratitude on your transparency with reference to your feelings about Michael. It really touched my heart. You are 'incredibly nurturing'. I mean that from the depths of my heart. What a beautiful statement .... ". I just wish I could take all of this pain and anguish he felt away." brings tears to my eyes. It seems when you take away his pain, you are also healing and nurturing your own heart and soul. You must have experienced a lot of misunderstandings within your lifetime. I have a greater appreciation of your being. You have such a special and gentle quality. I am 'awe struck' with your sensitivity and now completely understand your attraction to Michael. So many have been horribly mistreated and not understood.... like young innocent children who have been abused, it is not only tragic but absolutely heart wrenching. That same sensitivity is what moved me down the path of my life as a person and a profession. Tears come to my eyes when I think of how others have been treated. I wish life was fair. I wish everyone would be respected for their human condition. I wish I could remove everyone's pain. Unfortunately, that will never happen.

I am new to this level of the internet .... interacting with others and getting close. I thought it could not be possible and was surprised by my response and closeness. Then one hopes of the possibility in making IRL friends out of internet ones; however, it seems people prefer not to make it a real life reality. This is a true struggle, as I would love nothing more than to walk along the beach with an internet friend who has become a real life friend and talk about the issues we discuss on the internet. Or sitting in a park if they are unable to walk. After all, it is their mind that one becomes close to, not their body. I completely agree with your statement regarding the internet and the practice of tolerance, understanding and acceptance because it is an illusion. The illusion is such a struggle because of my love for people and wanting to get to know them in real life. And maybe we all need to create an illusion for ourselves as an escape from some of the reality. Allowing for a much needed balance.

The practice of controlling your environment is non existent with others involved. I concur that your mind, is where the control originates. We all have choices whether to look at the glass half empty or half full. In theory, always being able to look at everything half full might be a nice peaceful place. However, it is the tragedies of life that bring about growth and higher awareness. My preference would not to go through life untouched. In the process of opening ones heart, we allow ourselves to be touched by others whether positive or negative. You are correct, as you do not need to allow yourself to sink to their depths by keeping your focus positive. The quest would be for balance. You stated: " environment is naturally transformed to mirror our example" I have a little different spin on that point or it could be I have misread your wording. If one is experiencing negativity, they will only see a negative environment as that is what matches with their cognitions. The same is to be said about feeling positive. This is the same experience as if I give you a compliment that you did not believe or accept because it did not match your perceptions. One can only accept a compliment if it matches with their cognitive constructs. We see through them, we limit ourselves through them...it is our illusion and reality.

Absolutely right on target... when you said "You talk the same language. You cherish the same truths" That is why when people experience the same issue, there is always a deeper level of understanding. It transforms beyond words...

Yes, the pantomime skills was a lot of fun. I have been deeply touched by some people without even speaking one word to them. We even exchanged email and I will have a good friend willing to translate for us. I am now in Seoul, Korea and can even view CNN from my friend's TV. wow!!! Quite a difference from a small village in China. Many people speak English in Seoul.

Ah, LCA I am so grateful for this interaction. I am delighted at your length, willingness and energy you spend posting to me. Thank you from the depth of my heart. What an experience to be expressing these feelings and thoughts to another woman who fully understands. This is such a rarity and I embrace the experience. Thank You so very much. ~ Nina

@ Nina 1fox ~

Good Morning/Evening. After responding to your posts on the previous blog last night, just now I happen to check this blog and discovered that you had actually finished where you left off, or I should say, composed a new comment. I must say, our interactions are so enjoyable and I looked forward to reading your response.

It is so reassuring to know that you believe and understand the heartfelt feelings I expressed towards Michael. One would have to be blind not to see the look on his face during the trials. His heart was torn to pieces. His physical and mental anguish you could visibly see. I could not help but feel his pain. A loving and generous spirit so sadly misunderstood in society. A person who carries themselves with an over-abundance of loving compassion and a deep desire to express love is always more susceptible to be hurt by people in this world who do not recognize love for what it truly is. It is true that when two people have experienced hurt, pain, and misunderstandings in life, there is a definite connection. We feel and can identify each other's pain. When you go through the motions together, speaking the same language, you bring a sense of comfort and healing to each other.

It deeply saddens me to hear about the abuse of children. I hear the heart-wrenching cases on the news, I read the newspapers, etc. This brings tears to my eyes. Children are innocent. They are pure. They are God's angels. Children need to feel loved. They need to feel nurtured. They need to feel safe and secure. No child would ever go without love if it were up to me.

I think as humans, we have all experienced being misunderstood or being treated poorly in our lifetimes. We all know the hurt and anxiety it creates. Everybody wants to feel accepted. No one likes to be judged without knowing all the facts. I, too, wish there was a greater respect for the human condition and that I could take away everyone's pain. But unfortunately, it is impossible. I only wish a little of my tenderness and understanding could reach the masses so as to provide a healing touch. The smallest amount of affection shown can go a long way and mend broken hearts.

I concur with your feeling about Internet friendships and establishing some kind of escapism and balance. I have had so many delightful and inspiring interactions, present company included...LOL! How wonderful it would be for all of us to meet one day and talk about the issues we discuss on these blogs. I also share a love for people. I am fascinated by people from all walks of life. Discovering and learning as much as I can about them. No one person is alike. We all have our own uniqueness and varying qualities. Life is so interesting, people are interesting. I meet people everyday while taking a walk by a beautiful lake or going to a store. Some people just want someone to reach out to and listen to them. I love to lend a listening ear whenever and wherever I can. I could learn something in the process, and I usually do!

You have a better way of explaining the concept of controlling one's environment, I must admit. I tend to have thoughts flowing in my head sometimes and what happens is I do not express them too well when typing. I tend to be too wordy and my thought process sometimes gets lost in the translation. I apologize for that. But I am very glad that you put your own spin on the topic. Brilliant, I might add. It is so true that control does originate in one's mind based on choices made. I would prefer not going through life untouched as well…Because it is through the tragedies of life where the growth and awareness come to light. I believe what you said about if one sees and experiences negativity, then that is what their environment will consist of. So it is a learned behavior. Examples set by one's own cognitive thinking. I absolutely enjoy reading your interpretations. So profound. So insightful. Thank you so kindly for sharing your wisdom.

Turning the attention back to Michael for a moment...okay maybe a little longer than that (if you don't mind)...LOL. I just want to touch on the fact that I know there are so many of his devoted, loving fans who, like myself, would give anything to be able to stand before Michael right now and embrace him. Telling him over and over again how much we love him, we appreciate him and how much he means to us. I want to say that I do have, and feel, a level of understanding for Michael that runs ever so deep. I cannot explain it. But I would never single myself out because I know I am not the only one who feels this way. He makes my heart flutter. I know that's impossible because I have never met him or never had the privilege and honor of ever seeing him in concert. I could only admire from a distance and would never, in reality, ever get to actually talk to HIM, get to know HIM…the MAN. What troubles me is that now it’s too late. I will not get that chance…To have the chance to rekindle his lost spirit and soul. To show him that he deserved pure, unconditional love. Love that he freely gave out to countless people. And no, I do not really know if this is what Michael truly wanted or needed. Maybe in some way, I am being selfish in thinking of only how I feel about him and what I would do for him. I hope you do not mind my venting...just bare with me. I actually dreamed about Michael recently. (I know I am sounding like an obsessed fan now). Believe it or not, you would think I would dream about him constantly but unfortunately I don't. Anyway, in my dream, I was standing in a courtyard in the dark of night and all I could see was a great big full moon shining and I was watching him dance in what looked like a garden of some sort. I was standing at a distance but yet wanted to be ever so close to him. I was joyfully happy because I then woke up with the biggest sigh and a big grin on my face. But then sadness draped over me, because it was only a dream. Okay...Now I do apologize for rambling. I could go but I won’t! I guess I got caught up in the moment...it happens sometimes!..LOL. I am overwhelmed with emotion right now. He transforms me beyond words.

I am sure the pantomime skills were a lot of fun. I can imagine being deeply touched by people without speaking any words. What a powerful statement that is. Sometimes you can see one's heart through their actions and by the expression of kindness on their faces. Love has a universal translation whereby the words don’t necessarily have to be spoken, but the actions can be demonstrated and understood in any language. It is wonderful and so important to keep the lines of communication open and having the ability to translate will make a positive difference in their lives. You can impact a person's life in such a profound way by simply making them feel important. That is so thoughtful and endearing.

At least now that you are in Seoul, Korea you won't have to practice your pantomine skills...LOL! I have said enough but I want to extend my appreciation and gratefulness to you, as well. Thank you for this rare and extraordinary experience...a truly amazing one, at that!

An experience that deserves embracing!

My sincere gratitude,
"LCA"

@ LCA
CNN Please post this post
As always, I treasure your correspondence. Your self expression is excellent and I feel I am walking with you along the shoreline as you share these feelings, ideas and thoughts. When you said: "You can impact a person's life in such a profound way by simply making them feel important. That is so thoughtful and endearing." What an incredibly powerful concept and statement. I definitely see that quality within you. It is the reason I say you are an incredibly nurturing woman. When you talk about Michael, I am in Awe. I really mean that. I do not think I have ever head anyone ever before this discuss their feelings in detail. I loved his music and appreciated his humanness; however, I was like most of the general public. And yes, I saw his face and it broke my heart. I knew he was hurting whether he was guilty or not. I believe he is not guilty now, but it took a dear friend to help me through that. I came to the MJ site following a dear friend that I was afraid of losing. I have since accepted he has decided to drop our friendship and it has been a horrible loss for me. I have met wonderful people like yourself and decided to stay. It seems to be where I feel I belong. With little judgment from others and can express my emotions without always being so intellectual.

I will continue this post to you as I have so many things to communicate from your expression and feelings towards Michael. I am flying out today from Seoul. I just received an email from my older brother and I must come back sooner than had planned. I just changed my reservations with Asian Airlines so I can fly out this afternoon. I love my brother with the depth of my heart and he is in trouble physically. I want to be there for him and I have a sims card on my phone for China but not for Korea. ((( Blast))) this technology. This will probably be my last post before Larry King shuts down. I wanted to get this out to you now as my next post you will read when I am back in the US. I have MSN if you would like to connect that way. It is on my home computer and I can give it to you tomorrow I guess it would be night in California. I am hurrying with this post as I want you to read it before they shut the blog down. I also have something for Letta. I searched for it as I have heard of it only last year and did not have the time in China to retrieve it. It is said to help one's immune system.

Take care my loving and kind friend! With your hand in mine always. Just squeeze if you need anything, and I will be there.

A cherished friend, ~ Nina

Good Morning/afternoon/evening LCA (lol)

Laughing at your post entry of…good morning/evening. That is really funny. Actually LKL is pretty easy as there is an exact 12 hour difference between China and the east coast of the US. By the time you read this, I will already be home as I read your blog at the Seoul Airport using their computers. I am in flight now writing this response.

Thank you LCA for indulging me in philosophical as well as very personal conversations; whereby, you are willing to share your feelings, perceptions and experience. I often re-read and ponder what you have said. You are intelligent, articulate and incredibly nurturing. I seldom have this experience with IRL friends for many reasons, usually because they are stressed and want to express that while, like you, I provide a listening ear. When you stated: “I only wish a little of my tenderness and understanding could reach the masses so as to provide a healing touch. The smallest amount of affection shown can go a long way and mend broken hearts.” That touched me deeply. In so many ways, we are similar. I completely agree that no two people are alike in this world and there is always something to learn from listening to others regardless of age. Parents can certainly learn a lot about themselves through their children if they are willing to listen. It is the reason for the choices I have made in my life and the path I have taken both professionally and personally.

I never find you too wordy and your cognitive process is exceptional. I truly enjoy reading every word you write. I am deeply touched by your feelings towards Michael. I certainly agree that many fans loved Michael and hated to see him in pain; hence they want justice for him. However, there is something about you that is special. Maybe it is the way you write about your feelings, and being the private person, which I truly believe; I feel for whatever reason, and I really cannot explain it in words, but you share more pain with Michael than anyone else I have encountered on the CNN blog site both past and present. I may be completely wrong, but I feel that you have experienced a terrible injustice at some point in your life and people judged you without knowing the facts. Yes, everyone has been judged and felt victim; however, it feels much deeper with you. You and Michael have shared a similar deep and profound pain; hence the closeness without ever meeting him. This type of common experience and pain between two people is transformed beyond words. There are two kinds of connections. The “common” experience such as the love of a star or the appreciation of his humanness and sadness because of his tragic life and the desire to defend and protect him. Then there is the deep connection in which you witness someone struggling emotionally, and it goes right to the core of your heart….you become transformed and suddenly have a deep connection with that person, as you know only too well, how it feels as you have been there. I am sorry if I am rambling on and not being very clear. This is difficult to put into language because it is beyond words.

When I read one of your first blogs, you never mentioned anything about this; however, I had the feeling you have been judged and treated horribly possibly by friends and family maybe even the media which created the private side. I sensed it and was attracted to how you have grown and coped with the situation and sadness. I believe because you shared a common experience with Michael, what you would have wanted to do for him; is what he would have wanted you to do, as that is what you needed for yourself. Even though we are different each and every one of us, still has a commonality in how we process pain and needs. You are NOT selfish in any sense of the word. You are incredibly caring and kind. I am so deeply touched by your experience. I feel honored that you decided to share these feelings. Yes, most unfortunate, it is too late for Michael, but not for you. I would recommend you give yourself the love and unconditional regard you would have given for Michael so you can continue with your healing. I think you are currently working on self acceptance as we all are. You are NOT an obsessed fan. You share the same pain which cuts like a cold wet blade of a knife in your heart and soul. Your dream is beautiful. He loved to dance and in your dream, you were witnessing what he loved to do which could translate as he was finally at peace and that is why you were smiling and happy. The night and full moon can signify many things but I get the impression that Michael is finally at peace without anyone hurting him anymore and you know that to be true.

If I have over-stepped my boundaries, I am sorry. I just wanted to be honest with my experience of you, and since the internet is one of illusion, I could easily be completely wrong. Thank you for sharing your experience. It was so profound with a lot of insight. Thank you so kindly for sharing your knowledge and wisdom.

We are now landing at LAX so I will end this and load it up on CNN from home.

A big Hug to you LCA

A cherished friend, ~ Nina


LoveConquersAll   September 26th, 2010 1:33 am ET

@ Nina

Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening…LOL!
(I am glad you found some humor in my greeting...LOL!)

First and foremost, I thank you for the “Big Hug” , my friend and I send one right back especially for you. There's nothing like a hug...I certainly can feel the love…And its wonderful!

It means so much to me that you understand my feelings when it comes to Michael. I thought I had expressed too much. Well, here goes…I guess I am not quite done yet. I do feel a closeness and deep connection to him that I cannot explain although I have tried to make my thoughts and feelings heard. I feel it in the core of my heart and in my being. Like I stated before, Michael transforms me beyond words. My heart is still heavy and I am struggling with the fact that he is gone. Like countless other adoring fans, not just myself, it has been hard to come to grips with his passing. Letting go is the hardest. I know what I am saying may not make much sense due to never actually meeting him or getting to know him by simply being his friend. The thought of having a true friend, one that would understand the importance of honesty, loyalty and trust. The sad part, if you don’t mind me saying this, is that he was surrounded by so many who only wanted something from him. Yes, it may be too late to say this now and it may not even be believable, but I do not want or expect anything from him. Although I will not hide the fact that we all share in saying that his extraordinary talents were beyond anything anyone has ever witnessed. Setting his “King of Pop” image aside, there is nothing that I would want other than simply ”Michael, the man, the human being”, with all of his strengths and weaknesses.
Lets face it, we are all “only human”…no one is perfect. Not even Michael, but I love him unselfishly and unconditionally. I love his heart, his genuine soul and his fiery spirit. He has captured my heart, my soul and my mind. What I wouldn’t do for him. Sorry for my rambling, once again. Yes, I do believe Michael is at peace. Something he wholeheartedly deserves….However, I did not want to lose him in the process. If I could say to him, no one will ever hurt you again, I would. But unfortunately, life has its struggles and people are people and, for whatever reason, the good ones always seem to get hurt the most. Maybe due to their kind and loving hearts being sadly misunderstood.

One thing is for sure…I’d put my heart on the line for Michael, the "ordinary man"…And its never too late to believe in miracles.

I am so pleased that my comments touched you in a most profound way. I am only speaking from my heart. I strongly believe and try to practice what I preach every day by simply giving a kind word or gesture to a neighbor or even a complete stranger. I honestly do. I so believe that you can affect a person’s world in a positive way by showing that you care about them and that they are important. A little love, understanding, acceptance and respect is all it takes. Everyone wants to feel accepted and loved. No one should ever feel rejected or alone. There are so many lessons in life to be learned and there is a great deal to be learned from each other. I agree that children can be great teachers if their parents are willing to listen. Children speak the truth. They have no ulterior motives or judgemental qualities. If anything, parents are the culprits for teaching the negative thinking towards others. It is a learned behavior. Children are blessed and they only know what they are taught. I treasure each and every child…I really do. All they need is affection, nurturing and tender love…all the makings of a solid foundation for their future. Open communication is so important, instilling strong family values and gathering together as a family is imperative. Unfortunately, the family unit today no longer exists. No one seems to have time any more. My feeling is you have to try and make time or else it will be too late.

You could never over-step your boundaries because I value your insight and wisdom. The internet is one of illusion and it is most difficult to visualize and paint a picture in one’s mind of the person you’re corresponding with. But you have shown me, through your words, that you are a truly loving, considerate, kind-hearted person. I accept you for who you are, don’t ever change. Your friendship is cherished. Hope that your family member is doing well. You and your family are in my heart and in my prayers. Keep the Faith.

If you feel your hand is being squeezed, it’s only me hoping that “You will be There”.

A Sweet Embrace for you, Nina…

I am here, I feel my hand being squeezed. I do not know if I have enough time to write everything I want to say before they shut down the blog, so I wanted to have you know I am here..... and a Big Hug to you with your hand in mine. a cherished friend ~ Nina

Awe LCA

You are extremely bright and sensitive. What an incredible combination. I can see your intellectual side battling with your heart trying to make sense out of your profound feelings. ~Holding you tight~ We do not need to know someone IRL in order to love them. You experienced the qualities within Michael. You have a common shared bond. Similar to war veterans, your understanding of Michael transcends beyond words. I truly believe Michael transformed you into a different being and his passing devastated you. Letting go, because of its finality, is very painful. I can feel your pain to the depths of my heart. Let the feelings flow within your heart as you are protected in the warm embryonic fluid encircling you and allowing you to experience all that is within your heart. Reaching out my hands as I gently hold your heart so you will not experience the pain alone. Do not hold in the feelings, let it flow from your heart to mine. Another shared heart will ease your sorrow and loss. The Miracle has already happened. Michael captured your heart, mind and soul.

My mind and heart have you at the forefront of my thoughts. LCA, I hope you find comfort in knowing that I am here to support you and share your grief for however long you need. Wrapping my arms around you and holding you tight.

Thank you for allowing me the privilege and honor of understanding you at such a depth and to share your loss and pain. (carpe diem) A cherished friend ~ Nina

@ Nina 1fox ~

Hello there. Always a pleasure to read you. I certainly hope that all is well with your older brother. My thoughts are still with you and your family.

I really do appreciate your understanding and compassion in relation to my in depth feelings towards Michael. Your words are so accurate in describing my intellectual side battling with my heart because I am truly trying to sort out my emotions and come to terms with everything. I am doing my best to accept the harsh reality that Michael is gone. The devastation pierces deeply within my heart. I miss him terribly and I know there are no words, thoughts or actions that will ever bring him back. All good things must come to an end. Why must everything be so final?

Your beautiful words and most loving sentiments touch me in such a profound way. I can't tell you how much I appreciate your "shared heart" as a means to ease my pain and sorrow.

Michael, indeed, has captured my heart, mind and soul but the real "Miracle" would be to have him with us. He made me smile, he added joy to my life, his playfulness and child-like qualities made me love him even more. The sad part is that special smile he brought to my face is now gone. I know life goes on and again, I am doing my best to cope with this loss, but I can't help but want to "look over my shoulder" and see him there. (You can laugh at that statement if you wish to).

I am trying to hurry before this blog shuts down. Once again, you are so delightful to interact with. I treasure all of your comments to me. It is a true honor and privilege to acknowledge you as my friend. I really mean that.

Thanks for holding me tight and I am sorry if your shoulder is a little wet from my tears. From the bottom of my heart, thanks for being there.

Much Love,
"LCA"


nina1fox   September 30th, 2010 12:27 am ET

@ LoveConquersAll

I have asked that same questions ... Why must everything be so final. The pain will never go completely away, but one day you will be able to think about Michael without the tears. My heart goes out to you LCA as I truly believe your heart is still in pieces resulting from Michael's passing. You are correct, there are no words that can take away your suffering; however, sharing it with someone who understands does help. I can feel your heart is broken and fighting intellectually to keep everything in perspective even though your heart is stubborn and does not agree with your mind.

Awe, LCA, I would never laugh at your statement that you look over your shoulder to see if he is there. The desire is so strong to be able to see and experience Michael's presence. It is natural. Your desire to heal him emotionally is so very strong. I do the exact same thing with someone I befriended on the internet in February of this year. And my desire to heal my friend physically/emotionally is ever so strong. My shoulder can handle a lot of tears as I hold your hand tightly so you can pass some of your pain on to me and decrease the burdened you are carrying.

I lost someone very special to me 2 months ago. Not through death, just disappearance which leaves everything completely and totally unraveled including my heart. He was like my best friend and I could tell him things I have never told anyone in my entire life. He brought joy to my life and helped me laugh more than I have in a long time. He was like a bright light giving brilliance to my life. There is not a day that goes by in which I wonder how he is doing and still worry about his health. I do not think that will ever go away. I wanted to be there IRL for him and help him through his medical plight. It makes me very sad if he is doing this completely alone. At least when I see him blog on LKL, I know he is doing well and I am relieved. This is the reason, I fully understand your pain.

LCA, thank you for having my brother in your thoughts. Getting older is not all that it is cracked up to be. Your body starts to wear out and one cannot move as quickly as before. My brother is ill and now wheelchair bound. This brings such a heavy heart as he is my only sibling and a treasured one at that.

I remember deep purple made a song entitled LCA so I looked up the lyrics the other night. This is what I found. I think, it is so appropriate.....

It Feels like the end
When you’re closer to losing your dreams
Than losing a friend
Flying blind
I’m shooting into the dark
Who will I find
Oh girl
And if it takes me a lifetime
I swear I’ll tear down every wall
Love conquers all
On my way
Tomorrow I rise with the sun
Soon I’ll be gone
Words can’t say
How the memories of feelings of love
They linger on
Oh girl
And if it takes me forever
I know it’s worth every teardrop that falls
Love conquers all
Somewhere there’s a place in your heart
Where the wounds never heal
Well you’re not alone
That’s just how I feel
Love conquers all
This one will last a lifetime
And if love conquers all
This one will last forever

,,, Love to you, LCA. A cherished friend ~ Nina

"Pain is inevitable. Suffering optional." – Anonymous

Hello there my treasured friend. It’s like a breath of fresh air every time I read your enlightening comments.

As I read the first paragraph of your post, I can’t help but think about the cliche, “Time Heals all Wounds”. It is most difficult to imagine myself one day being able to think about Michael without any tears. At least that’s how I feel presently, but to come to the realization that this will change in the future….I can’t say for sure. The loss of Michael was not only shocking but I never experienced this type of emptiness in my heart. There is this huge void. Again, I know I am not alone in my thoughts. Unselfishly speaking, there are countless adoring fans all over the world that feel the same way that I do. Believe me, this is odd behavior on my behalf because I have never met Michael, but only admired him from a distance.

This past year I found myself reading blogs and forums trying to discover some glimmer of hope because there were so many inconsistencies and unanswered questions surrounding his passing. Probably the real reason for my behavior was that I just did not want to let go and face reality. Please keep an open mind because I want to share something with you that is so far-fetched…I actually believed, (please understand), that there was a distinct possibility that Michael, the “King of Pop” had passed but yet, Michael, the man, the human being was still alive and well and just needed to seek some solace, peace and some normalcy and privacy to his life, which he so deserved. Even just for a little while. It is such a pleasing thought of Michael having the ability to separate the ordinary man from the “superstar” status that followed him all of his life. I know he loved being able to entertain and feel that L.O.V.E that he sought to gain. He finally experienced this love returned to him from the reaction of his fans.

I don’t believe that he could stay away for too long if there was any slight truth to this crazy notion that I am sharing with you. I do believe that it gives us all a chance to reflect and have appreciated him while we still had him. All this time we have had the chance to “discover the man we never knew”. I know I have. It is not just a surface feeling, it’s what lies beneath, that has captured me beyond words. The ultimate lesson being learned in understanding his message fully would be if we could take the focus off of the “superstar” status and focus on the real underlying important issues in the world around us, our planet, this is what it is all about. Healing each other, healing the Earth, healing the world.

I also understand that Michael had other avenues he wanted to explore such as film. I do know and feel that the stage would forever be calling out his name because his heart would always be drawn to performing. To me, he is a warm, sensitive, loving, kindhearted man deserving of real, true, undeniable, unselfish, unconditional, and pure simple, L.O.V.E.

In response to your thoughts, Nina, I don’t believe the tears I shed will ever be final. My emotions run so deep. If dreams came true, I would think of embracing him so tight with the feeling that I am home, I have found my safe harbor, my refuge, my shelter from the storm. But life is but a dream. I know in reality, he would not be feeling those thoughts about me. I do know he truly deserved to find his soul mate and I hope that one day, he will, if he hasn’t already. His true happiness is all that matters.

Nina, you are an angel. I want to be able to reciprocate and take some of the pain and loss away that you have experienced. I want to also decrease the hurt that you are feeling so please pass it on to me. We can help mend each other’s broken hearts. That is the process on which life goes on. The point is that time does NOT heal all wounds…A more appropriate thought would be, “It’s what you do with the time that heals”. Like any aspect of life, mourning is an active, working process, not a passive one. I strongly concur with you in that sharing your pain with someone who understands does help tremendously.

When you can no longer deal with a broken heart, when you can no longer soldier on, when you can no longer absorb every emotional thought, then its time to begin a new phase of life in which you acknowledge the loss. You stop being a soldier and become a philosopher. Instead of battling, you look for meaning. You look for connections. With compassion, you examine your wounds to see exactly what occurred and what direction you are going; this is the true healing phase. It’s not “time” that’s doing it, it’s you.
This post is longer than I actually anticipated, and for that, I apologize for my wordiness. You mention that your brother is ill and wheelchair bound. I sympathize and feel your pain being that he is your only sibling. It is not easy getting old. We all have to experience it one day. That’s why is so important to cherish every moment, live life to its fullest, and be grateful for the simple, little things that life offers you. Always smile, and know that you are not alone. I am here for you just reach out and call my name, and “I’ll be There.” Thank you for listening and understanding me.

By the way, the lyrics to that song by Deep Purple, I was not aware of. The lyrics are most meaningful and I so appreciate you posting them.
Sending you all my love…from a distance…my treasured friend

I have been pondering your blog. It is filled with richness and depth. I will not be able to give you an answer before they shut down the blog tonight. I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate all that you have shared which have deeply touched my heart. I feel a great deal of admiration as you have so many wonderful qualities.

Holding your hand tight so I can share some of your pain. A cherished friend .... ~ Nina

Good evening my Treasured friend
As I read your words on the page, my heart aches for your sadness, loss, and pain. I truly wish I could remove all that pains your precious and wondrous heart. We are so blessed to have the ability to allow tears to flow which helps remove some of our pain that we seem to carry within every fiber and molecule of our body. Cry, my precious friend. It helps to bring balance from within. Every tear drop, filled with pain is gently released from your body and mind; thus, bringing a little relief. Any time we become that profoundly and deeply touched by someone, these experiences will occur and are very natural. Sometimes when we are so emotional, we wonder if we have lost touch with reality. There is nothing my wondrous friend that could be far-fetched as I truly can feel your heart aching. Michael, the man will live on..... in all our hearts and minds, especially yours. You have opened my eyes to the man behind the King of Pop. Every person you touch will know Michael at a deeper level than before. He will live on long after we pass on..... I truly believe that every person we allow to take residence in our hearts, we carry with us for the rest of our lives. Our heart has the capacity to fill the void with the understanding that maybe Michael completed his tasks in life and is no longer in agony. I believe your void comes from such a deep and profound desire to heal this man as you were painfully watching how he was being destroyed through the media, so called friends, and people around him. I feel, you wanted to be the 'true friend', the individual who wanted to mend his ailing heart which kept him up at night due to his horrific emotional pain. You know that pain only too well yourself. This is why it runs so deep within you. omg LCA, you are such an amazing person. I am truly saddened to see you in so much pain. Reaching out to hold your heart so I can share some of your pain.

Like you, I have the same drive and desire to heal a dear friend. I can feel his anguish and pain late in the evening (early morning) which also disrupts his sleep. I wake up sometimes at 3am and go for a walk because I can feel his anguish. I do not need to talk with him to know this. The desire to heal this person runs to the very core of my being for I truly believe, he is a beautiful person who has been deeply hurt and wants to inspire others unselfishly for their good, not his. Like Michael, he is an incredible person, a rare jewel. Unfortunately, he does not see himself like this, just as Michael. The two have a lot in common. More than I ever imagined until lately. It is rare that you find someone that can move to these depths which demonstrates their incredible sensitivity and sometimes are profoundly devastated to the point of not being able to allow that kind of closeness with another. I completely agree, when you can no longer bare the pain, you become a philosopher trying to make sense out of it. Unfortunately, death has little meaning other than loss to those alive and grieving. We can attach a meaning to death if it makes it easier to cope. There is a song that I always listen to which helps me out of the trenches of sadness. I have listened to this song almost every day since I was a child. I has the most profound impact on my emotions and life.... I hope it will do the same for you. The lyrics are:

Climb every mountain,
Search high and low,
Follow every byway,
Every path you know.
Climb every mountain,
Ford every stream,
Follow every rainbow,
'Till you find your dream.
A dream that will need
All the love you can give,
Every day of your life
For as long as you live.
Climb every mountain,
Ford every stream,
Follow every rainbow,
Till you find your dream
A dream that will need
All the love you can give,
Every day of your life,
For as long as you live.
Climb every mountain,
Ford every stream,
Follow every rainbow,
Till you find your dream.
~~ 'Climb Every Mountain'. Sound of Music

If you google climb every mountain Michael Jackson, you will see a very beautiful youtube.

There is no need for you to reciprocate. I feel most alive when I can connect with someone at this level and you have given me that opportunity. I am so thankful you are willing to share this with me. You will certainly live on in my heart for the rest of my life. Please never apologize for your posts length. You have no idea what it means to read your ideas, feelings, experiences, etc. I truly cherish every word. I feel indebted to you for allowing me the rare experience of listening to your heart. Thank you LCA!
A cherished friend ~ Nina

@ Nina

Good Evening my Cherished Friend.

I appreciate your sincere thoughts of comfort and encouraging words about Michael. Michael, the man, will certainly live on in all of our hearts and minds, undeniably so. He resides in my heart and I will forever treasure his presence. One way of coping with his loss and filling that emptiness I feel is having the understanding that he is no longer facing the pain, sadness and loneliness in his own life. He once said that he felt like “one of the loneliness people on the Earth”. This tears my heart out. No one should ever feel that way. My deepest desire was to try and take away that pain and be a “true” friend. Realistically, I know that would have never happened, if only in my mind and in my dreams.

I did google and view the You Tube video, "Climb Every Mountain – Michael Jackson" that you mentioned and it was, indeed, a beautiful tribute to him. I knew before I even watched it that it would awaken every emotion inside of me. And it did. Even though I had prepared myself, the tears ended up flowing from deep within my heart. I felt more sadness than relief because I was looking at a dose of reality...A heartfelt rememberance of him and saying "Goodbye", which is so final. Letting go is the hardest and that’s what made me cry even more knowing that I cannot restore the loss and Michael will not be coming back. A sad reality and most difficult to accept.

Crying is an act of self healing and self nurturing. The seeds of growth are nourished by tears of grief. I know it’s not the tears we cry that hurt us, but the one’s we struggle not to cry for they drip within our sad and weary hearts. I agree with you and believe that we are blessed to have the ability to cry and release the pain as a means to cleanse the soul.

You can shed tears that he is gone,
or you can smile because he has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that he'll come back,
or you can open your eyes and see all he's left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see him,
or you can be full of the love you felt.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember him only that he is gone,
or you can cherish his memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind,
be empty and turn your back.
Or you can do what he'd want:
SMILE, open your eyes, love and go on.

Nina, you have such a warm and loving way about you that I have grown to admire and appreciate. Your words of wanting to reach out to hold my heart to share some of my pain is so touching. You stated that there is no need for me to reciprocate but I want you to know that I do understand your need and desire to help a dear friend who is suffering. Your situation is slightly different than mine. Our feelings may be identical but, in your case, there is still hope. This person may one day contact you and feel the need to open themselves up again. There’s always hope. Unfortunately, in my situation, I can’t even say that I had a chance to try. Only in my dreams. Please don’t misunderstand me. My heart goes out to you and I sincerely hope that your relationship somehow gets resolved in a favorable manner. It is evident that you are actually sharing his pain without him being physically present in your life. There is already a connection there.

This is my wish for you: Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, Love to complete your life.

Thank you for sharing your innermost thoughts on how the song “Climb Every Mountain” had a profound impact on your emotions and your life. I so appreciate you sharing the lyrics with me. Likewise, you have no idea what it means to read your feelings, thoughts and expressions. They impact my life and emotions in such a profound way. You will, without a doubt, live on in my heart for the rest of my life. Thank you for listening to my heart and allowing me to bear my soul. Thank you for your consoling nature and for your understanding and compassion...Because of this, I am deeply indebted to you.

Good What ever morning/noon/night (lol) LCA

I completely agree that one way to help the grieving process is to have the knowledge that the individual is no longer experiencing any kind of pain. Your incredible desire to heal Michael and to be his true friend, as I am sure you are already aware of, is one of the causes of the depth and duration of your grief. I can see by your blog that you are truly struggling emotionally as you were not given the opportunity to heal someone that was such a treasure to you. When you discuss this ever so strong desire to heal Michael, it feels like you experienced this situation before with someone you knew and loved deeply but was never given the chance due to their untimely and sudden death. And yes, no one should ever experience that profound loneliness and how that knowledge pierces the very core of your heart like a cold wet blade.

I am sorry that the video brought back so much vivid pain that resides within you. It was not my intention for you to relive this pain again. Grieving is a difficult process, as when you think you are finally finished with grieving, it comes back again. But each time we experience the loss and pain, it is not quite as devastating. It does become easier…we do go on…. I enjoyed and thank you for your thoughts pertaining to looking at a situation from two completely different perspectives. One with sadness and the other with joy and I suspect most people vacillate between the two.

You are absolutely correct. Your loss from Michael’s passing is so final as he resonated within you on a conscious as well as deep unconscious level. I am so sorry that there is no hope of being his true friend or taking away his pain and loneliness. I never thought of my sadness with any comparison to your grief. For yours is the most painful of all. My sadness is not so much due to my loss of a good friend, but that I feel he struggles emotionally and physically and he does this alone. I, too, want nothing more than to be there for him and be his best friend. He was like a brother to me. Yes, there is a strong connection as I wake up from a deep sleep and can feel from a distance his mind spinning with deep profound thoughts and struggling to shut his mind down so he can sleep. I would like nothing more than to just hold and nurture him so he could slow his mind down in order to get some much needed rest. Like holding a child when they are afraid of the dark, touch can also be used between adults to provide comfort and nurturing from one to another in order to balance the person who is struggling. Holding another in a nurturing fashion can create a high level of healing. Thank you so much for your kind thoughts and words regarding your wish for me. You are such an incredibly kind and gentle person. Even experiencing the level of emotional pain you are in, you still walk through life with an open heart. I am deeply moved by your willingness to keep your heart open.

I am the one indebted to you for allowing me into your heart and soul with such depth and profound kindness. Like a breath of fresh air. I enjoyed the poems you shared and of course, an old friend, Gibran. I feel so honored to be a part of your willingness to express your internal experience. My wish for you is resolve….in which you can live life to its fullest as you are no longer grieving. Sunrises to bring warmth into your gentle heart, Friendships that will bring joy and happiness to your being; Gentle hugs when your spirits begin to sag and laughter heal to brighten your days

@ Nina ~

Hello there, cherished friend. First and foremost, there is no need to apologize for the mention of the "Climb Every Mountain" video. I know that your intentions were all well and good, as always. You are not responsible for my reactions or my emotional outbursts. Grieving is never a finished process because of the mere fact that, just when you think you are over it, something is always there to trigger it or remind you of the sorrow...Especially when that someone is Michael. He has left his footprints deep within my heart and soul.

Life does go on, this I know and realize but again this pain and loss is so profound. I know I am in a state of denial because I want so badly to believe that Michael is not gone. Still not wanting to let go. That strong desire still burning within to reach out and console. Believe me, I know there would be a long line that I would have to wait in because there are countless others who feel the same way I do.

My heart goes out to you because of your own personal experience that you have been struggling to come to terms with. I can feel your need to reach out and console your friend. The fact that you cannot stop thinking about him doing this all alone, is very upsetting and frustrating. You feel like you just do not have any control over the situation. Yes, even though a strong connection does exist, the thought of not being able to reach out, console, cradle and nurture this person tears at your heartstrings. I must admit being able to feel someone's touch as an expression of tenderness is ever so powerful and has definite healing qualities. I sincerely hope that you are able to one day reconnect with your friend on some level. I truly do.

I do hope that I find some resolve in terms of Michael. I have to accept that my dream will not come true. (As I breathe a sigh of relief)...I could just close my eyes and envision embracing him in my arms, while resting my head upon his shoulder with a sense of peace and love filling our souls, while a feeling of warmth fills my fluttering heart. Almost like we are both children seeking comfort and nurturing because we are afraid of the darkness. We each provide an equal balance to aid us through our struggles.

Nina, again you are so very kind with your comments to me. I honestly do not believe that I am deserving of them but they are so appreciated more than you know. I do try to speak the language of my heart. I really appreciate and enjoy this delightful interaction. I have learned so much from you. Your comments are filled with so much insight, wisdom and endless knowledge. I look up to you. Thank you for this most enlightening and intellectual experience from the bottom of my heart.

Sending you a gentle hug...A treasured friend...

@ LCA

Thank you for your understanding of my true intentions. I realize I am not responsible for your feelings; however, the last thing I would ever want to do to a friend is hurt them. Please believe that. I have made my allotment of mistakes in my lifetime and especially over the past 2 months. My heart feels saddened as you continue to reel in pain from grieving. Like the grief we experience with the loss of a child, sometimes we develop a bond with another that is so deep, it binds to the core of our being. With the passing of that person, the loss and grief takes on a life of its own. I can feel your head and heart on the battlefield again. You intellectually reason out the loss; however, your heart betrays you as you continue to experience such profound pain. (Holding and nurturing you through your pain, LCA) Your head rationalizes that others are also experiencing this amount of pain; however, your desire to reach out and console him is still ever so strong. And the situation is out of your control. My heart is heavy with the knowledge that you struggle to move on and as you take two steps forward, you slide back one resulting from triggers and the deep desire to heal someone you deeply loved who transformed your life. I believe that intelligence can go against those that grieve hard as one tries to make sense out of their situation. However, sometimes as in the grief process, our feelings can become irrational and our brain tries to fight against or continues to try and make sense out of it all. My heart goes out to you in your time of grief. Squeezing your hand tightly as I am there with you as you walk through the pain. I will Not let go. I am right there…taking every step with you. Imagine I am holding you ….I am your protective blanket. I am here to share your pain. Like a mother wrapping her arms around her child so she may find comfort and rest, my embrace is to nurture you through your pain so you do not have to grieve alone. My heart is strong, I am strong, I can take some of your pain to lessen the burden and grief.

Yes, LCA, you know me well. The strong desire to nurture my friend… to be able to cradle him so he could let go with all his pain is what I truly desire. To have him rest his head on my shoulder so I could gently stroke his back allowing for a quiet mind and much needed peace. I have also accepted that if this is truly what he wanted, he would still be in contact. So I must question the desire is solely generated on my behalf and he either is uncomfortable with someone nurturing him as it would be a very new experience, or he does not need it. I prefer to think the former is more accurate. I have accepted that when he is ready, if ever, he will contact me. He has always been the nurturing one in his relationships. He would struggle with being nurtured even though he desires it….he would have difficulty with trust and feeling vulnerable. Because I understand this, I will give him as much time as he needs and I believe he knows me well enough to know I would be there for him. There is no frustration because when I think about him, it is because I chose to do so. I just feel saddened as I truly believe he has never allowed anyone to console him and he would feel awkward and uncomfortable allowing anyone that close to his heart. He feels the need to shield his heart and protect himself. My sadness comes from the knowledge that he has isolated his heart from others and there is a little boy that resides within him who is crying out, very much like Michael. This is what tears at my heartstrings. He has been misunderstood by many including myself and judged harshly; Hence the need for an impenetrable wall around his heart. He feels the need to protect his heart at all costs. He has been through some horrible times that no one should ever have experienced. I just want to hold that little boy that resides within him and let him know that everything will be alright and that he has a friend and someone who genuinely cares which would defend him. I have no feelings of frustration... only ones of acceptance. Yes, I think about him daily. I carry him deep within my heart. He will always be with me for the rest of my life for he has given me a piece of his heart whether he realizes it or not. And that might be the cause for the distance. I can still feel his presence on the blog. I do not know what name he uses, and I do not try to guess any more. I have moved beyond that. I do feel he is drawn to me and does interact with me on the blog. I also have some major concerns about his health.

I believe you will find resolve in regards to your feelings with Michael once you allow someone to embrace the child that resides within you. The child has been deeply wounded and is also crying. Your child within attached to Michael's child. Once you can open your heart up to another, I truly believe, resolve would be coming your way. You are a very wise person with years of experience and knowledge. Even though you are fighting against opening your heart to another, and allowing someone to embrace the child within, you know deep within your soul, that is what must be done to finally set you free.

LCA, I find it interesting that I have the same feelings with you. One of appreciation, one of wonder, one of honor as I admire your incredible wisdom and knowledge. I feel undeserving of your compliments and I so much enjoy our interaction. Spoken directly from my heart. You are such a beautiful person and have captivated my mind. I always look forward to reading your post and with so much inspiration. I am often moved to tears from the beauty of your thoughts and writing. Thank you does not seem to be enough....for my feelings seem to be beyond words.... Friendship is the greatest gift. My cherished friend..... ~ Nina


LoveConquersAll   October 11th, 2010 11:11 am ET

@ Nina

Good Morning, my cherished friend.

I appreciate your courteous, heartfelt, response. Before I begin, I have to say that you continue to amaze me with your profound words and thoughts. You have such a gentle soul and I take comfort in knowing that you have a firm grasp of my hand and you will Not let go. With that being said, I have known for quite some time now that the situation is out of my control and I have accepted that. I always knew that my feelings could never go any further and I would never have a chance with Michael so I gave up on believing that my wish would ever come true. It was obvious that, in reality, I would have to admire him from a distance. (It did not stop me from hoping, wishing and dreaming though…LOL!) One thing that I must admit is that my heart continues to carry that deep desire to heal Michael even though I have never met him.

How many times have I wished that dreams came true and I could imagine Michael taking every step alongside me as we walk through each other’s pain. If I could close my eyes and imagine him holding me, protecting me…both of us protecting each other, resulting in our shielding ourselves from the storms of life. I would gladly go with the feeling of a sense of freedom in our souls along with a sense of belonging, with the child within us embracing, like we have both found our way home

Nina, I really appreciate the genuine care and concern that is transmitted in your most healing and soothing words. What is “real” for me is the fact that I can feel, not just imagine, the security of the “protective blanket” you mentioned being wrapped around me. You are a cherished friend and I consider myself blessed to have come to know you on this blog. I must admit, your offer of lessening the burden and the grief touches my heart immensely. Such a thoughtful and unselfish act and one to be admired and followed.

I am reaching out to mend your heart as well. I know your deep desire to nurture your friend so that he can release all of his pain and let go is sad because again, you have no control over the situation presently. The best gift you can give to someone you love and care about is the gift of time. It is not easy to have to back off, step out of the way, and allow him all the space and time he needs. That is a hard task to do when it is in your nature to cradle and nurture someone as a means to heal them and make everything better. Believe me, Nina, you are doing what exactly needs to be done. Where you are right now is where you are supposed to be. Try to remember that as difficult as it may be at times. I know you have a brilliant mind abundant with so much wisdom and beauty so I know your head is thinking this…but again it’s the heart that struggles.

When you mentioned that he had experienced some “horrible” times that no one should ever have experienced…Just this fact alone explains the reason why he may be having difficulty in allowing someone to get too close. Emotional shutout is usually a defense mechanism to cover up one’s feelings and hidden desires. Give him time, give yourself time. Let him sort this out. I know his health is one of your concerns so he may feel like he does not want to complicate your life which I know you are not that kind of person to feel that way. You are too kind-hearted and genuine and I am sure he knows this about you. What a beautiful thought where you stated your “wanting to hold the little boy that resides within him and let him know that everything will be alright and that he has a friend and someone who genuinely cares which would defend him.” If that does not speak of true love, depth and understanding, I don’t know what does. So beautifully stated.

Yes, Michael has successfully captivated my mind and heart…no doubt about that. Thank you so much for the extremely encouraging words. They are most helpful and I will never forget them. I truly concur with every written word about the child within. My heart is always open, just a little cautious. Now if I could just find someone like Michael, my heart would forever be harmonious and singing a song of happiness…Everyday would be like springtime for me. I would not have to utter a word, just the endless smile on my face would say it all. THAT is what Michael does for me.

Nina, your comments move me to tears. I could not agree with you more when you say that “Thank you does not seem to be enough”…because MY feelings seem to be beyond words.

So true…One of life’s greatest gifts is Friendship.
