Dreaming of You
Dreams can disappear - poof, just like that.  Where do those dreams go? Are they floating out there
with no place to land - songs not sung, dances not danced, all those dreams that will never come true?

Marjorie Klein, Test Pattern, 2000, p. 204

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Nothing like sad ol' love songs.....

BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJMQjukSJFM - Dreaming of You - Selena, 1995


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dreaming_of_You_%28Selena_song%29:

"Dreaming of You" is the name of a Selena love song written by Franne Golde and Tom Snow. It was Selena's biggest single, peaking at #21 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was released at the end of the first quarter of 1995, after Selena's murder. It appeared on the album of the same name, which was released posthumously.

Robert Johnson of Planet Music, a record chain in Houston, told New York Times that people in Houston were buying copies of the album Dreaming of You because of the single "Dreaming of You".[1] 15 years after her death, Teresa Jusino of Popmatters wrote: "Even the most sheltered English-speaking music fan might not know Selena's name, but if you mention her hit singles, "Dreaming of You", or "I Could Fall in Love," they'll likely respond with 'I remember that song!', or 'I love that one!'."[2]

Peter Watrous of The New York Times wrote: "It's not that she didn't sing well in English; she spoke English substantially better than she did Spanish. It's that the English song writers didn't step up to the bar with their best material. The music is faceless commerce. That she sings it so well on the album suggests that she had a good chance of success, working lush ballads in an anonymous pop style that Disney has mastered..."[3]


REMINDER #1 - SPECIAL REQUEST:

   From Malcolm Davis ('65) of VA - 04/09/13, 8:47 AM - "Special request concerning      Jamey (Douglas) Bacon ('66 - of VA)":

Dear Carol,

Because of your Typhoon newsletter, that has previously alerted all of your readers to Jamey's medical and fiscal needs in the past,
  Polly Norris Davis - '65) and I have been helping Jamey and getting to know her more personally and seeing just how great her needs are. Thank you for making us aware.

It is now my request to ask for financial assistance from our classmates and your readers as we try to provide Jamey with improvements for her driveway so that she can maneuver her motorized wheelchair outdoors without getting stuck in the ground or thrown from her chair. Jamey wishes to fill in the center of the driveway and because of her home being located in Hilton, she must use brick to accomplish the project or it will not be approved.

I have measured the area and priced the brick paving stone. She will need 288 sq. feet of the brick and that will cost $655.44 retail at Lowe's. She will also need 3 yards of crushed stone and 1 yard of sand which I have not priced yet. I am seeking to have the Peninsula Baptist Summer Youth Work Camp take this on as a mission project in July. This could hold down the cost for labor if the city and the community will allow them to do the work. If not, we will need to purchase the labor from a contractor.

I have permission to set up an account at my church, Parkview Baptist Church, to receive any contributions and also to afford us sales tax exempt status when purchasing the materials from this account. An additional 5% discount will be afforded by using the church credit card when making the purchase. You may also deduct the contribution that you make on your income tax returns.

I am seeking contributions now to make this mission a reality. This is a real need. Jamey's quality of life would be enhanced by this improvement to her home and yard. She is an amputee and is completely dependent on her wheelchair for mobility.

Anyone wishing to contribute to this project is asked to make a check out to Parkview Baptist Church and mail it to Malcolm and Polly Davis at 118 Cindy Circle, Newport News, Va. 23602. I will turn the checks over to the church and keep everyone informed, through your news letter, of the running balance of the contributions received and their ultimate disposition. The names of those who contribute will be kept private and I am hoping that enough individuals will be willing to contribute at least $10.00 so we can raise enough to complete the job even if we have to hire a contractor to install the bricks. Please note on the check that this is for the "Jamey Bacon Mission Project."

Here are some pictures of the driveway in its present condition.
 
Friday, March 22, 2013
 

Thank you all for considering this request for assistance. Your participation will be a blessing for Jamey and she is grateful for your concern always.

Sincerely, Malcolm and Polly Davis
NNHS Class of 1965

    Thank you so very much, Sweetie-Pies!

   C'mon, Typhoon Nation - y'all know what to do!


REMINDER #2:

        From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 03/20/13, 4:46 PM - "     Dave Arnold's ('65) (12 Aug 1947 - 21 July 2012) Final Resting Place":

Carol,

Please post this in an upcoming newsletter.

Dave Arnold’s Ashes to be Distributed by Civil War Cannon at Fort Shenandoah on April 13th

My good friend, Dave Arnold (NNHS ’65), died tragically on 21 July 2012, as a result of an automobile accident. In accordance with his wishes, his body was cremated.

It was also his wish that his ashes be distributed in the Shenandoah Valley. Dave loved "the Valley" (as he called it) of Virginia. He grew up in the Tidewater area, but his heart remained in the Valley area of Virginia. It is only fitting that his ashes should find their final home there.

It is also only fitting that his ashes should be distributed by being fired from his very own cannon, which he was having fabricated, so that he could more fully participate with the 1st Virginia, his skirmish group, which is a part of the North-South Skirmish Association.

His final wish will now be fulfilled, thanks to the efforts of his fellow Civil War skirmishers.

On April 13 at 12:00 noon, this ceremony will take place at Ft. Shenandoah at the primary range where the skirmish events are held. Attendees will enter and pass the range keeper's house, and there are signs to the main range.

All are welcome to attend. Dave would have been thrilled to have you watch his cannon being fired on the skirmish field. I can think of no greater way in which to honor his memory.

Fort Shenandoah is owned and operated by the North-South Skirmish Association and is located near Winchester VA.

You can learn more at their web site: http://www.n-ssa.org/

Directions are here: http://www.n-ssa.org/NATIONAL/maps.html

For GPS users, the street address is “480 Chalybeate Spring Road, Winchester VA, 22603”.

   Oh, WOW! I had no idea! We wish we could make it ourselves, but I think the chances of that are infinitesimally small.....

  Thank you so much for letting me know, David!

From http://www.SelfGrowth.com - 02/25/13 - "How to Relate to Others":

Social Intelligence: 6 Steps to Relationship Success

By Eugene Yiga

"I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people." - Vincent van Gogh

Meeting people is easy. In addition to the traditional ways like friends, societies, and other social groups, we now have the internet too. And provided we're prepared to get out of our comfort zones, it shouldn't be too hard.

But getting along with the people we meet is another matter. It's something a lot of us struggle with. Ultimately, it all comes down to developing social intelligence. That requires three things:

1. Relax.

"Seek first to understand, then to be understood." - Stephen Covey

Relationships aren't meant to be taken seriously. So keep that in mind whenever it comes to approaching someone new. Don't fold your arms, cross your legs, or scrunch up your face. Be approachable by keeping your body language open. Put your arms at your sides, stand up straight, and lean a little forward. Know that they will enjoy your company.

2. Listen.

"There are people who, instead of listening to what is being said to them, are already listening to what they are going to say themselves." - Albert Guinon

Most of us try too hard to come up with clever things to say. But instead of worrying about your words, why not shut up and take a minute to listen? Take an interest in who they are. It starts with remembering their names but goes a lot further. Ask a lot of questions and encourage them to talk about their lives and the things they're going through. You'll be surprised just how much diversity and depth lies beneath the surface.

3. Connect.

"Living in a vacuum sucks." - Adrienne E. Gusoff

The main aim of relationships is to connect with the thoughts and feelings other people are having. Doing so starts with maintaining eye contact (without staring) but also goes a lot further. Oftentimes, rephrasing something they've said is a good way to show you understand the emotion behind the message. They'll be far more inclined to connect with you if you're prepared to show this level of commitment.

"Most conversations are simply monologues delivered in the presence of witnesses." - Margaret Millar

Choosing your words can make or break an encounter with someone else. But doing so does not have to be hard. Ultimately, it's good to know that as long as you're prepared to make an effort, there are friendly people all over the place just waiting to converse. Go up to them and try the following:

4. Be sincere.

"A witty saying proves nothing." - Voltaire

Don't use the conversation to show off how knowledgeable you are about things nobody might even care about. And don't use it as a chance to complain about other people or your problems. In other words, don't talk for the sake of talking. If you don't have anything good to say, you're better off not speaking at all.
Instead, be as neutral as possible. Start with something small like a sincere compliment or even something as clichéd as the weather. When it comes to dealing with people you're just getting to know, it's best to save the potentially controversial topics and heated opinions for later.

"All charming people have something to conceal, usually their total dependence on the appreciation of others." - Cyril Connolly

5. Be interested.

"My method is to take the utmost trouble to find the right thing to say, and then to say it with the utmost levity." - George Bernard Shaw

Remember that the conversation is not about you, as much as you'd like that to be the case. Instead, make it about the other person. Ask people about their lives and take a real interest in what they have to say. When they ask the same of you, it's time to make the connection. Start by finding common ground. Studies show we are actually more inclined to give money to charity if the person asking for it happens to share our name! So find whatever similarities you can and make them known. It could be your background, interests, or even where your grandparents grew up. Common ground is a great way to break the ice and build rapport.

6. Be open.

"Compassion and love are not mere luxuries. As the source of both inner and external peace, they are fundamental to the continual survival of our species." - Dalai Lama

Relationships are ultimately about opening up and connecting. You can't do that if you're simply focused on keeping things strictly professional. Take the time to get to know new people in your life. Slowly open up by sharing your life and encourage them to do the same. That builds trust. Sometimes you may hit a wall, in which case it might be advisable to simply keep things light. Even relationships like that have their place. But wherever possible, try to find a connection and let it grow. Show love and support because that's what we're here for.

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 04/09/13:

A man asked his wife what she'd like for her birthday.

"I'd love to be eight again." she replied.

On the morning of her birthday, he arose early, made her a nice big bowl of Coco Pops, and then took her off to the local theme park. What a day! He put her on every ride in the park: the Death Slide, the Wall of Fear, the Screaming Monster Roller Coaster, every thing there was. Five hours later she staggered out of the theme park. Her head was reeling and her stomach felt upside down. Right away, they journeyed to a McDonald's where her loving husband ordered her a Happy Meal with extra fries and a refreshing chocolate shake. Then it was off to the movies: the latest Star Wars epic, a hot dog, popcorn, all the Coke she could drink, and her favorite M&M's. What a fabulous adventure! Finally she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed into bed exhausted.

He leaned over his precious wife with a big smile and lovingly asked, "Well, Dear, what was it like being eight again?"

Her eyes slowly opened and her expression suddenly changed. "I meant my dress size!!!!!!!"

The moral of the story: Even when a man is listening, he's gonna get it wrong.

Dreaming of You

Written by
Franne Golde and Tom Snow (b. 1947)

Posthumously recorded by Selena (16 April 1971 – 31 Mar 1995), 14 Aug 1995


Late at night, when all the world is sleeping
I stay up and think of you
And I wish on a star that, somewhere, you are
Thinking of me, too

'Cause I'm dreaming of you tonight
'Til tomorrow, I'll be holding you tight
And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be
Than here in my room, dreaming about you and me

Wonder if you ever see me, and I
Wonder if you know I'm there
If you looked in my eyes, would you see what's inside?
Would you even care?

I just wanna hold you close; but, so far
All I have are dreams of you
So I wait for the day and the courage to say
How much I love you
Yes, I do

I'll be dreaming of you tonight
'Til tomorrow, I'll be holding you tight
And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be
Than here in my room, dreaming about you and me

Ah, ah
(Corazón)
I can't stop dreaming of you
(No puedo dejar de pensar en ti)
I can't stop dreaming
(Cómo te necesito)
I can't stop dreaming of you
(Mi amor, cómo te extraño)

Late at night, when all the world is sleeping
I stay up and think of you
And I still can't believe that you came up to me
And said, "I love you."
I love you, too

Now, I'm dreaming with you tonight
'Til tomorrow and for all of my life
And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be
Than here in my room, dreaming with you endlessly

Dreaming with you tonight
(With you tonight)
'Til tomorrow, I'll be holding you tight
And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be
(Rather be)
Than here in my room, dreaming with you endlessly
(I'll be dreaming)

Dreaming
(Of you tonight)
Endlessly
(And I'll be holding you tight tonight)
Dreaming
(Dreaming)
Endlessly
(With you tonight)

Endlessly
Endlessly
Dreaming
