"Phoebe Snow - Poetry man"

Phoebe Snow was a remarkable women, and I would like to take this moment to remember her.

Phoebe Snow (born Phoebe Ann Laub; July 17, 1950– April 26, 2011) was an American singer, songwriter, and guitarist, best known for her chart-topping 1975 hit "Poetry Man". She had a contralto grounded in a bluesy growl and capable of sweeping over four octaves."
She was briefly married to Phil Kearns, and in December 1975 she gave birth to a severely mentally impaired daughter, Valerie Rose. She resolved not to institutionalize Valerie, and cared for her at home until Valerie died on March 18, 2007 at the age of 31. Snow's efforts to care for Valerie nearly ended her career.
Phoebe Snow suffered a cerebral hemorrhage on January 19, 2010 and slipped into a coma, enduring bouts of blood clots, pneumonia, and congestive heart failure. Snow died on April 26, 2011 at age 60 in Edison, New Jersey.

She sure could sing, and had a big heart.
There are many people in this world right now who are suffering and in need of our love and prayers, not all of the are well known. Ever notice how when you read a story about someone who is well known it seems to hit home and make you feel sad? Yet somehow people manage to pass by homeless and suffering people every day and hardly take any note or regard for it. Let us take a moment of silence as we listen now to Phoebe's song, (below here in the player), and take some time to put our love, energy, Reiki, and prayers, with deep compassion for human kind, for all of those suffering out there. If you too are suffering, you are not alone, and someone does care. I am sending Reiki and praying for you all.
Now listen to Phoebe.
