"Don't Ask Why" Week #50

I have loved writing and working on this tune! A while back, my friend, Christina had suggested that I listen to some Bob Marley... Hmmm. Then my friend, and awesome fellow musician, Jonzie, from Kroffire Records suggested that I write a Caribbean love song when I get a chance. So, this is my ATTEMPT to write a Caribbean love song. 
Well, at least, that was my starting point. "Don't Ask Why" is born out of this idea.

So, here I am with only two songs to go. I have been so excited about finishing phase one of "Teddy and Me". In fact, I couldn't wait to accomplish this awesome project!!
Now, I sit here with tears in my eyes!? "What gives?" I think to myself. I don't get it! I have an idea of what my last two songs are going to be. I'm almost there.
I've been looking forward to the next phase, so... What??? I mean, really, "What??"
I think that I am going into a kind of mourning. Could that be? This is new. "Teddy and Me" is a huge part of me, of my life, of my thoughts and of my heart!!! This year is a chapter of my life that is so precious and yes, it has been a life altering experience!
Wow!

Oh, and by the way, the little girl in this picture is my inspiration! This is my mom, long before she was my mom. She is loving, smart, kind, open minded and along with everything that is extraordinary about her, I am so grateful for her never-ending support!

    Don't get rid of this web page. I somehow managed to get all of your songs on my bar and can play any of your songs so far. Liked the happier beat and words. How is your mom? She has also been a big inspiration to me. Her best attribute for me is her inability to judge another person's actions. I love her. Things here are tough. They think that dad had a lack of oxegen during surgery. He is not allowed to drive because of cognitive dysfunction. He is not the same as he was before. He is still gentle but, not the same. I need surgery on my feet and they think I have rheumatoid arthritis. Also, my neck has been leaning severely to the left. Dr. is sending me for tests because of prior neck surgery possibly being responsible. He has atrial fibrillation also. The upper part of his heart is beating at 350 per second. Too fast. I am tired, worn out and getting a little down. All this crap is happening and hasn't let up since 1983. Oh bitch, bitch bitch..going to bed with a sleeping pill to get some rest and to get out of this funk. I will not let him go into a home! Thanks, cousin. I will call you sometime. Love, Ele
