She's the kind of woman that will haunt you...
Yes she matters to you...
I found myself captivated by Queen Latifah when she was a star of the sitcom "Living Single". Since that time she has starred in several feature films of note, including "Start It Up". My favorite, however, to date, is "Mama Flora's Family", a television mini-series, with Cys Tyson.
Queen Latifah is an accomplished rapper as well as a great actress. She is another of the "kind of woman that will haunt you". Thank you, Queen, for the magic.
There is a woman in Somalia
Scraping for pearls on the roadside
The sun gives her no mercy
She keeps her will alive
This is how she's dying
She's dying to survive
Don't know what she's made of
I would like to be that brave
The same sky that we lay under
It burns her to the bone
As long as afternoon's shadows
It's going to take her to get home
With each grain carefully wrapped up
Pearls of her little girl
She cries to the heavens above
There is a stone in my heart
She lives a life she did not choose
And it hurts like brand new shoes
The song Pearls is from Sade's "Love Deluxe" CD
These hands are small I know...
They're not yours they are my own...
The beautiful and talented Jewel has captivated me now. I first saw her on T.V. in the "Wizard of Oz in Concert". She has come a long way since then and I am happy to see that she has done well.
I have heard songs from her first album, but was touched, very much, by the lyrics and the video for the song "Hands". I am enchanted!

Haunting me to wakefulness, though I am fast asleep..." Ricky Pilcher 8/99
I feel the the talents and the beauty of Sharon Tate have been lost in the horror of a fateful night in the Summer of 1969. Most often, the people who took her life are the ones who are mentioned. I will not do that here. I reserve this place in my cyberhome for the beautiful ghost, Sharon.
She remains one of the women who has captivated me. Please do not forget her. She deserves only the best memories we can hold.
