I don’t know about you, but as for me, there is only so much death, bombing, murder and mayhem that I can take in a given period for I hit the “tilt” zone. I could not read even one more news story about murder and death today. I watched pet videos instead.
[ I also weed-eated the edge of the yard, trimmed blackberries vines over the fence, pruned cedars, watered the garden, miracle-grow-fed the garden, swept the garage and driveway, re-stacked what’s left of winter wood, shipped two jewelry orders, and now I am making black beans and rice. So I have been a productive little Cherokee. 🙂 ] Enjoy.
A fabulous collection of photos which has been circulating the internet arrived in my in-box today and I wanted to share them. Spread the love and send them on!

We rarely get to see the moments in the lives of famous people when they forgot the camera was looking and just relaxed. Before the days of excessive papparazzi-ism was a time when the photographer tagged along with the famous person, almost like an extended family member. This was especially true of famous musicians. Some of the most incredible photos of famous people were of course, never planned, staged, or arranged in advance. They were caught as life happened, giving the viewer a rare glimpse into the soul of the artist.
