Big Breath...


Mary had so much to say, so very much.  Being the youngest of eight children, squeezing in a word was impossible.  Shouting over the din was even worse.  Add to that, Mary was a tiny girl with towering giants as siblings.

Mary had a skill: if she took a deeeeep breath and managed to plunge through the loud voices, she could speak so rapidly that everyone stopped to listen to her.  By doing this, Mary could relay a day’s worth of talking as long as the air in her lungs allowed her.

Someday, Mary would excel at pearl diving.

This is not a true story, but it had your attention, right?  Watch this video so that you do not feel betrayed.


Hope you enjoyed this lady's talent and her message!

  5. Dear Susan, she's quite a rhymer and breather and speaker. Some of her message doesn't resonate with the spiritual path I'm following, but I'm sure that many,many people are led to thought by her. Peace.

  10. That lady is just amazing. A fast talker (which I don't like) but, unlike other fast talkers, tellin' us the real deal.

    Blessings and Bear hugs!

  12. She's got just about any rapper beat and with a far better message--and one that's actually meaningful.
