Imagine Paul McCartney Out There.. in San Diego! "Yesterday"...

 CLICK TO WATCH 

Out There Paul McCartney   "Yesterday"...

The anticipating crowds, the people flooding in the gates, the peace & love vibe rockinthe masses, the smell of rock and roll in the air, the stage is set and the concert began....

You know the feeling you get when you feel like everything is in alignment and everything and everyone around you is contributing to this fortunate time? Thats the way I felt at the Paul McCartney Concert. From elder, middle aged, and fans that werent even a gleam in their parents eyes when the Beatles phenomenon began, flooded the Petco Park Stadium to a sold out audience of 42,000 people.

The concert was jaw dropping amazing. From Playing a tribute to John Lennon with a song he wrote and he also told a story about George Harrisonsukulele as a tribute to his powerful rock and roll side taking over the stage with pyrotechnics, fireworks, two large screens flashing reminiscent & modern imagery. This was a once in a lifetime experience. For a 3 and a half hour show, not to mention the four encores he played, Paul McCartney has still got it. To all of your hard core Beatles fans let me be the first (I hope), to tell you that not only does Paul gives you his own music and rock, but he takes you back to the days of peace, love and the Beatles. Wherever Paul is, so are the Beatles. Doug said the Beatles were magical they changed everything in music and fashion here there and everywhere!

We should all thank Paul for giving the world the gift of his music while still giving us the groovy gift of the Beatles. I strongly believe that music is a way of life of sorts. It can change your mood, feelings, emotions and more and man let me tell ya, it was all smiles, good moods, the feeling of peace and freedom and the wonderful energy feeling the music pump through your veins. I obviously give Paul McCartneys Out There Tour a huge thumb up with a peace sign and a smile.

Thank You Paul McCartney form ... Doug & Amy  Peace and Love!b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_0028.JPGb2ap3_thumbnail_paul-mccartney.jpgb2ap3_thumbnail_meetgreet-MTV.jpg

Give Peace a Chance - Come Together

john-lennon-by-jeff-ham-give-peace-a-chanceGive Peace a Chance & Come Togethergive-peace-a-chance

Have you noticed lately that there is a “rude”, “mean” or just "off" streak coming from people everywhere? At stores, restaurants, boutiques, the Dr.’s, bookstores and even my favorite place for meditation. Try meditating next to someone who curses under their breath and you can feel their angry energy? It’s not very peaceful.

Is there some type of pill people are taking that makes them mean & rude? Or is it just rubbing off one another? I’ll tell you one thing, it hasn’t turned me. I have been on the receiving end but not on the rude side of things. I stay strong and treat people how I want to be treated.

What do we do about this? We begin with one person at a time. I want to see the LOVE, PEACE & HAPPINESS. Ijw-purple-rose-1024x768 want people to start coming together again. It seems once we begin coming together we will start to see the Peace & Happiness begin to flourish like a beautiful flower.

No more wars, no more arguments, no more tears unless there happy ones. So everyone needs to GIVE PEACE a CHANCE & COME TOGETHER….RIGHT NOW.

give peace a chance coolageWe wish you all the best in starting another peace, love and happiness movement!

cutekids-hugging-on-beach3If you can, please submit how you feel about Peace and add a picture or two of what peace, love and happiness means to you.

I love all of you and wish you Peace & Happiness every second of everyday.

Peace and Love – Amy inspired by my Doug254846 4057659242026 1852427136 n MG 7251

Gypsy Spirit by Amy inspired by Doug Gordon

amy beach faceI am a true definition of a gypsy. At heart; in my mind…my way of life is Gypsy Style. To be a true Gypsy you must carry the Gypsy Spirit in your soul. The Gypsy spirit, to me, means freedom, a totally open mind, a true passion for what you do an open mind to learn and grow and a huge love for change.

The Gypsy also must be spontaneous, have the attitude of “why not”, a positive outlook on life and an appreciation for Mother Nature close to your heart. IMG 2757

Gypsys have fun. They stay in packs or go out solo feeling totally uninhibited. Gypsys travel, play music, and continue on to anywhere their Gypsy heart’s desire. Love, Peace, Freedom, Passion, Talent, Desire, Beauty and more is what makes up a Gypsys Spirit. It gives them life and a huge passion to live it.

IMG 2744Gypsys wardrobes have become a bit modern in a very good way. Layers upon layers, a ton of jewelry, especially bracelets, bright colors, bright spirits, and I believe every Gypsy is very sultry or seductive. Gypsys draw us in with only using their beauty, power, their whimsical spirit and the hypnotic beauty of their soul that shine through their eyes. 

                                                                                                                        -  Amy Radzik

Keep checking back as another Gypsy video is headed your way. This time it’s about the life of my inner Gypsy and of course my life of my outer Gypsy. The sultry, seductive, bright, dark, hypnotic eyes of the empowered Gypsy Queen Amy. 

Doug sent this to me one day to inspire me, and it worked. Thank you Doug. 

I would like you all to read some lines from “Divine Gypsy”, a poem by Yogananda:

”I will be a gypsy,IMG 3794 2
I will sing a song that none has sung
I will sing to the sky,
I will sing to the winds,
I'll roam, roam, roam, roam,
By day, the shady trees will be my tent
At night, the stars shall be my candles
And I will call the moon to be my lamp...”

Thank you and remember to keep checking back for more videos, posts, interactive posts, fashion trends and more!
