Tammy Why Not



 Listening...you won't necessarily find beauty in the voice...depends on your ear....but if you listen to her words...there you will find the value..or I did anyway...

I am writing this after the first two songs...so let's see what happens with Sara...and thanks taminator013 for turning us on to Tammy....I like what you put out there for us once again.

 *** The purpose of this performance was to raise money for the benefit of mental illness, and suicide prevention, of which I fully support, so I can completely see the beauty in this video. I have known people with mental health issues as well as a couple of people who have taken their lives...and no matter how you look at it, there is a great sadness, and  a grasping at love, that cannot be denied.  Somehow, I feel there should be enough to go around.

 It has also not gone unnoticed by me, that while this post started as something humorous, it has certainly taken a turn to the more serious...and that is a message in itself...oft times the funniest of people, the most gifted or talented, are the most stricken with depression...as in Robin Williams case, let us not only hear what they are saying....but look beyond into what they are not saying. I posted a poem a while back...."Please Hear What I'm Not Saying"...it's worth a second look.
