Knees of My Bees

“LIFE is a mosaic of pleasure and pain - grief is an interval between two moments of joy. Peace is the interlude between two wars.
You have no rose without a thorn; the diligent picker will avoid the pricks and gather the flower. There is no bee without the sting;
cleverness consists in gathering the honey nevertheless.”

- Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba
b. 23 Nov 1926)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
   I think it's time again for some Alanis Morissette music.

BONUS - - Knees of My Bees - Alanis Morissette, live on the Letterman Show, November 18, 2004.


Alanis Nadine Morissette (born June 1, 1974) is a Canadian-American singer-songwriter, record producer and actress. She has won 16 Juno Awards and seven Grammy Awards. Morissette began her career in Canada, and as a teenager recorded two dance-pop albums, Alanis and Now Is the Time, under MCA Records Canada... In February 2005, Morissette became a naturalized citizen of the United States while maintaining her Canadian citizenship.[4]


So-Called Chaos is the sixth studio album (fourth released internationally) by Canadian singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette, released in May 2004 (see 2004 in music).

It had been two years since Morissette released her fifth studio album, Under Rug Swept. In that time she had met her fiancé Ryan Reynolds, so her cheery disposition made its presence felt in many of the songs she wrote for So-Called Chaos. The album found her in a more contented and relaxed state than ever, and her songs were brighter and happier than her more volatile works like "You Oughta Know" and "Uninvited". One reporter asked if the song "This Grudge" was based on the same person as "You Oughta Know", and Morissette replied, "Different person, same era."[2]

  From Wayne Agee ('58) of FL - 07/20/14 - "NNHS Newsletters":


Not sure why but I am not receiving your issues as before. Maybe its my setup but would ask if you can put me on your list once again.

Thank for a marvelous job,
   Thanks for checking, Wayne!  You are still on my list, and the latest news is available on the 2014 NNHS Newsletters link, but beginning April 1, some silly anti-spam measures suddenly and without warning left me unable to initiate any emails.

   "Message rejected due to DMARC."

   On very rare occasions I am able to reply to those I receive.  I may at last have figured out a way around this, so stay tuned, spread the word, and look here to see what you've been missing for the last fifteen weeks:

From My Friend, Jennifer, of NC - 07/19/14 - "Who Am I?":

We all compare ourselves to others at times. We look at other people and ask ourselves, "Why can't I be more like that?"

So let me tell you today that you are exactly who you're created to be.

Before you took your first breath, God placed gifts within you. He wove you together with strengths, abilities, and that smile of yours that lights up a room. He made you irreplaceable.
There's one thing no other person in the world can do better than you, and that's simply being you.

You are made in the image of God, and there's a part of who He is that only shows up in this world through you. You may feel ordinary, but you're anything but that! You are a masterpiece. A bit of the divine. EXTRAORDINARY.

When you let your heart receive that, believe it, live it, then you're simply agreeing with God. That's not pride. It's actually the greatest humility to say, "Yes, Heavenly Father, I affirm that all You made is good - and that includes me too because of You."

And not only did He form you before you were born, but He also made you a new creation when you gave your life to Him to become his disciple. Not simply a new person - a new creation.

In other words, a completely unique being. Here's why that matters: if there's only one of something, it can't be compared. You're not compared by Heavenly Father to anyone else, and that means you don't have to compare yourself to others either. You're accepted, cherished, and even celebrated just as you are.

Will you simply offer this world the gift of you today?

   WOWZERONI! Thank you, Jennifer!

From My Friend, Tina, of NC - 07/19/14 - "I Will Dare...":

  Thanks, Tina!

Knees of My Bees

Written and Recorded by Alanis Morissette (b. 01 June 1974), 2004

We share a culture same vernacular
Love of physical humor and time spent alone
You with your penchant for spontaneous advents
For sticky and raspy, unearthed and then gone

You are a gift renaissance with a wink
With tendencies for conversations that raise bars
You are a sage who is fueled by compassion
Comes to nooks and crannies as balm for all scars

You make the knees of my bees weak, tremble and buckle
You make the knees of my bees weak

You are a spirit that knows of no limit
That knows of no ceiling who baulks at dead-ends
You are a wordsmith who cares for his brothers
Not seduced by illusion or fair-weather friends

You make the knees of my bees weak, tremble and buckle
You make the knees of my bees weak

You are a vision who lives by the signals of
Stomach and intuition as your guide
You are a sliver of god on a platter
Who walks what he talks and who cops when he's lied

You make the knees of my bees weak, tremble and buckle
You make the knees of my bees weak
You make the knees of my bees weak, tremble and buckle
You make the knees of my bees weak
You make the knees of my bees weak, tremble and buckle
You make the knees of my bees weak
