“Amazon Sage, meet Lady Ga Ga”

Happy morning and a Good Valentine’s Day to all who feel love in their hearts. Speaking of all presents wrapped in red, did you know that Lady Gaga,  an American singer-songwriter, born in 1986, is actually Stefani Germanotta?  I discovered this while watching an interview before the Grammy awards last night. I was most surprised to find out that she is a classically trained pianist. Wow, creative and smart! 
While my taste in music tends to lean more toward the obscure (primitive flutes and drums make me take flight!), I couldn’t help feeling moved by what she is trying to accomplish. Like a motivational speaker, she encourages kids to believe in themselves! Is it just me or does there seem to be a lot of that going around these days? Last night, in my dreams, Amazon Sage travelled to a few places where young women are showing the world what they’re made of.
In a Baltic country, young women have taken to the streets, sans shirts (that means topless!), to try to help their people. They say nothing else gets the government's attention. Might I add, the government is composed entirely of men? Then there’s Asmaa Mahfouz, a young woman who shamed men into coming out of the shadows and standing up for their homeland of Egypt (; and the woman who saved her husband from a wild tiger’s attack. According to CNN, “Han Besou, who was several feet away, heard the screams of her husband and charged the tiger with a large soup spoon, bopping it on the head.... The animal fled.” And of course, there’s Amazon Sage who, in her nightly sojourns, illuminates the suffering of people around the world...
According to Maya Angelo, a mentor for us all, remember two things: “Don’t trust people who don’t laugh” and “If everything you do falls flat and you can’t change it; change how you see it.”  That does not mean give up. If you are being abused by someone and keep trying to improve your behavior, thinking you must be doing something to cause it, Stop! Change your way of looking at it and you will realize that this person is an abuser. Now you have choices; get out of the relationship, block his or her messages, or call the cops. Did I mention, Happy Valentine’s Day?
