Anyone that knows me knows that I am a believer in motivating people and all good intentions. I am a stander for justice, for whats right and whats wrong and always wish to fight the good fight (if I am fighting for anything).
I was visiting a friend recently when her sister mentioned to me a lady by the name of Lena Horne.
“Lena Horne? Ive never heard of her.” I told her.
She said that I reminded her of her and that I should watch a movie she was in.
Today I stumbled upon my note I had taken that night to look it up, and so today I did.
Turns out, me and Ms Lena Horne have quite a bit in common.
She was a civil rights activist, a stander for justice especially in the struggle for black and white equality. She was an actress, a singer, and a dancer.
This was incredibly humbling to read. I always feel I was born in the wrong time period with the way that I see things. I can’t help but feel we are at least somewhat connected in spirit. As I feel many other women (and men) are connected with many other artists from the past. Perhaps she is one my many animal totems. 🙂 It just feels good to know of people who think and feel the same way about things. And if not, I am definitely learning something from her. The courage that I have been trying to manifest in myself.
Her music, and the music I have been creating-all speak in the standing for justice. In giving your own self a voice, in being you, and not feeling ashamed for it whatsoever. Just being REAL with people. She has the character that only a few close friends know I carry. Humorous, yet serious all at the same time.
I am glad my friends sister introduced me to her that night, and I am glad today I reopened my notes. I am definitely inspired to keep doing what I am doing, going where I am going, and to not be afraid!
I love her story telling character here. Ive always loved that kinda stuff!
And of course, this one…
Is there any historical figures you feel you connect with? Do you know of any I might be interested in learning about? Id be happy to do more research.
Have a good day and happy spring equinox to you! Jenny L T
