The Possibilities Are Endless

Well my friends here we are in a brand new 365 day tour of life. At the stroke of midnight I took my pans and wooden spoon outside and screamed and banged the old year out with screams of Happy New Year and ushered in the new with the same. It was dead quiet outside in the darkness. The rain had politely decided to stop for the cross over and my shouts echoed out into night. Someone somewhere fired a single shot from a .45. Ahh Los Angeles...... 

This morning/ afternoon I heated up my banana bread which although tasty had failed to rise which should have been no surprise as it was technically made in 2016! Hah! What a year man, what a year. 

I walked out to the garden and found that my young fig trees which had turned to sticks and died, had grown full on leaves and out of the blue were not only alive but covered in green! I took this to be a good omen. Things are not as they seem in this life. 

The thing I keep thinking today is that all the losses of 2016, the struggles, ALL of it good and bad is now past. That's why they call it THE PAST, because it has passed. I know that sounds ridiculously simple but it's true. Much of last year for me was spent in shock waves, one after the other as family members, best friends, extended family, fellow artist friends were  plucked out of existence. 

At the same time I was fighting to help keep other loved ones and family alive. 

It is going to take time to process it all. For now though It is a new year, a new day, a new moment. 

When we are young we are completely aware that each day is totally open to new possibilities. As we grow older and go through more experiences we start to assume. We assume that we know where things are headed, or how things are most likely to play out but this is false and frankly ridiculous. We can never truly know how things will go or what's in store for us or others. That is the one thing we can count on is that the possibilities truly are endless if we choose to see them that way. That is the tricky bit. Catching one's consciousness when it tries to tell us "it knows what's going on". 

These patterns are ultimately what either holds us back or moves us forward. 

So in the spirit of embracing the fact that we can never know what's coming so there is a chance that it could be absolutely amazingly brilliant, I welcome in this new year of 2017. 

My Mantra- 

                THE 

       POSSIBILITIES 

                ARE 

            ENDLESS 

They truly are. 

I wish each of you, your families, furry ones and friends a surprisingly blessed new year. 

Much Love

    Beautiful words Fairuza! Let the retrograde slip away so we can really begin things in earnest. Happy new year and hopefully we'll all be in one piece and together still on this earth for the next new year!

    Don't usually comment on web pages, but I've been a big fan of Fairuza for a long time, the Return to Oz is still one of my favorite movies even though it scared the hell out of me when I was a kid (damn wheelers). I like her music, would love to see her play live! I would not expect a tour to include Turtle Lake North Dakota, but if you I would recommend summer when the plains are one of the most spectacular places to be on the entire planet!

    Dear Fairuza, Happy New Year! I hope you are well. I am writing a biography of the late Nicol Williamson, commissioned by British publisher The History Press, and was wondering if you have any memories of Nicol from your first movie Return to Oz. Any comments, anecdotes or recollections would be very welcome. I know you were very young at the time but sometimes the tiniest recollection can be telling. Thanks so much if you can!

    Angela. Whats the word

    Hello Batman Calero, it looks like Fairuza might need to put approve comments on and screen cap your comments. Listen up, you do not own Fairuza or any woman and you will not have a baby tantrum and harass and demand against someones free will and demand that someone get down on their knees and pay any to your nonsense, what you need to do my friend is man up and get your ass out of the comments section. You have no right to publicly post Fairuza's address, intimidate or threaten her you have no right to trample on her beliefs and rights you have no say no right I would suggest that you get help but I know you won't you like to frighten and belittle and fail at sounding big tough and masculine I will hang around where I see your comments I am not afraid of you in anyway and I don't answer to threats. Take that as a very serious warning

    I'm going to ride your ass here Calero cause you just fucked with the wrong female, now I know you don't have the comprehension to get what it would be like to have your address and shit posted on a public site for all others to see because you're a selfish dick with serious delusions of grandeur and a poor bastard with no understanding how law works and that its all fucking illegal because under my scope you are dead meat no in a literal sense First we see this useless dick pop up in the comments with hilarious statements like I'm gonna get ya and you owe me a date no one will take it seriously because you think the world just has to bow down to you and blow your dick we get it alright, your ego is fucking big but when you get to comment after hilarious comment of utter shit and more intangible garbage it becomes self important and downright irritating So lets just say Fairuza cleans these comments up and puts a approval on now what are you going to do by the way, If you were really going to hurt her you wouldn't post it for the cops to haul your ass away my God you have given the courts such a good appeal to lock you up in the nut house I'm not even kidding You ran out of fuel of yeaaaaaaah and baaaaah and take your butt hurt sorry ass elsewhere and by that I don't mean trying her Facebook page If you could see how insanely low brow and irritating and insecure and F-U F-U mouthy frat boy that discovered the internet yesterday you would fuck off and that's all I'll tell you to do is fuck off

    I'm going to ride your ass here Calero cause you just fucked with the wrong female,
    now I know you don't have the comprehension to get what it would be like to have your address and shit posted on a public site for all others to see because you're a selfish dick with serious delusions of grandeur and a poor bastard with no understanding how law works and that its all fucking illegal because under my scope you are dead meat no in a literal sense

    First we see this useless dick pop up in the comments with hilarious statements like I'm gonna get ya and you owe me a date
    no one will take it seriously because you think the world just has to bow down to you and blow your dick
    we get it alright, your ego is fucking big
    but when you get to comment after hilarious comment of utter shit and more intangible garbage it becomes self important and downright irritating

    So lets just say Fairuza cleans these comments up and puts a approval on now what are you going to do
    by the way, If you were really going to hurt her you wouldn't post it for the cops to haul your ass away my God you have given the courts such a good appeal to lock you up in the nut house I'm not even kidding

    You ran out of fuel of yeaaaaaaah and baaaaah and take your butt hurt sorry ass elsewhere
    and by that I don't mean trying her Facebook page

    If you could see how insanely low brow and irritating and insecure and F-U F-U mouthy frat boy that discovered the internet yesterday
    you would fuck off and that's all I'll tell you to do is fuck off

    I also want to ask you Calero you heartless pile of dog shit, where is your compassion in all this? Why on earth anyways should she be your girlfriend as your delusional ass puts it how do you know she isn't taken and anyways what business is it of yours to even say? not anymore than your next door neighbor or the person down the block she made it clear she has been mourning from losing people and almost her own mom and all you can do is act like a stupid little girl going ga ga over a boy band and squeal 'girlfriend!' I think what is bugging the shit out of me is obviously Fairuza's work is all liberal/other she has never made anything conservative you only like her for a piece of ass to make it even worse as If creeping isn't enough it is about right to say grow up and be an adult
