Grandma's BloomNot knowing right from wrong; always searching for some sense–finding no-thing no-sense. Strained with pain–things unsaid; tongue twisted tainted distress. Vast Voiceless void of being–world of words whirling within–seeing. Spewing forth my voice; exalting resounding feeling. ~Voiceless in America

That’s all for tonight. Hope you enjoyed the melodies and enjoy the sweet bitter frequencies by Poison…Oh, Lord, give me something … Blessed Be! Love and Peace to all of you dear ones.

Sometimes I wish to God I didn’t know now
The things I didn’t know then
And give me something to believe in

Got brass in pocket
Got bottle I’m gonna use it
Intention I feel inventive


Rain ~Dragon

Posted: July 20, 2014 in Dragon, Music

All these feelings they seem so wrong
Remember when we were so strong
And it’s been rainin’ for so long
It’s been rainin’ I can’t go on

With where have you beens
And faraway frowns
Trying to be good
By not being round
And here in the bar
The piano mans found
Another nail for my heart

Don’t you feel like trying something new
Don’t you feel like breaking out
Or breaking us in two

Tenderness ~General Public

Only the Lonely ~The Motels

Posted: July 20, 2014 in Motels, Music

We walked the loneliest mile
We smiled without any style
We kiss altogether wrong
No intention

We lied about each others dreams
We lived without each other thinkin’
What anyone would do
Without me and you

Rhiannon ~Fleetwood Mac

Posted: July 20, 2014 in Fleetwood Mac, Music

Rhiannon rings like a bell through the night
and wouldn’t you love to love her?
Takes to the sky like a bird in flight
and who will be her lover?

Babe ~Styx

Posted: July 20, 2014 in Music, Styx

You know it’s you babe
Whenever I get weary and I’ve had enough

Baby, baby, baby, I’m gonna leave you
I said, baby, you know I’m gonna leave you
I’ll leave you in the summertime
Leave you when the summer comes a rollin’
Leave you when the summer comes along

Going to California ~Led Zep

Hello and welcome to Sunday Night Tunes with the White Rabbit. Mellow to begin and we’ll see where we go from there. Hope you join me. Thanks to those who do it all the time. Love ya’ll! :D

Took my chances on a big jet plane, never let them tell you that they’re all the same.
The sea was red and the sky was grey, wondered how tomorrow could ever follow today.
The mountains and the canyons started to tremble and shake
as the children of the sun began to awake.


“In my afternoon walk I would fain forget all my morning occupations and my obligations to society.”

Night Falls

I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day.

~Vincent Van Gogh

Thanks for tuning in. Good night and warmest wishes to you.

(We should know better) Dream of better lives the kind which never hate
(We should see) Trapped in a state of imaginary grace
(We should know better) I made a pilgrimage to save this human’s race
(We should see) Never comprehending a race that’s long gone by

Take me to the other side
Sparks fly like the Fourth of July
Just take me to the other side

Kiss from a Rose ~Seal

Counting Stars ~OneRepublic

Posted: July 13, 2014 in Music, OneRepublic

Dreaming about the things that we could be
But baby, I been, I been prayin’ hard

Only Time ~Enya

Posted: July 13, 2014 in Enya, Music

Who can say where the road goes
Where the day flows, only time
And who can say if your love grows
As your heart chose, only time

Pompeii ~Bastille

Does it almost feel like
Nothing changed at all?

Cruel Summer ~Bananarama

Hot summer streets
And the pavements are burning
I sit around
Trying to smile but
The air is so heavy and dry

Am I Wrong ~Nico & Vinz

Good evening and welcome to Sunday Night Tunes. Hope you enjoy tonight’s selections. Blessed be…the White Rabbit.

Update on Mom: Continued support and prayers my dear ones. Much appreciated. XX


“Am I wrong for thinking out the box from where I stay?
Am I wrong for saying that I choose another way?
I ain’t tryna do what everybody else doing
Just cause everybody doing what they all do
If one thing I know, I’ll fall but I’ll grow
I’m walking down this road of mine, this road that I call home

So am I wrong?
For thinking that we could be something for real?
Now am I wrong?
For trying to reach the things that I can’t see?
But that’s just how I feel,
That’s just how I feel
That’s just how I feel
Trying to reach the things that I can’t see”

Steps to a Path

“I am in the world feeling my way to light ‘amid the encircling gloom.”

The Promise ~When in Rome

Home you enjoyed tonight’s tunes. Good night and Blessed be always!

If you need a friend
Don’t look to a stranger
You know in the end, I’ll always be there
But when you’re in doubt
And when you’re in danger
Take a look all around, and I’ll be there

Der Kommissar ~Falco

“Dreh’ dich nicht um, schau, schau,

Er wird dich anschau’n

Die Lebenslust bringt dich um.”
Alles klar, Herr Kommissar?

Let’s Dance ~David Bowie

Posted: July 6, 2014 in David Bowie, Music

Let’s dance put on your red shoes and dance the blues

Let’s dance to the song
they’re playin’ on the radio

Let’s sway
while color lights up your face
Let’s sway
sway through the crowd to an empty space

Ice Ice Baby ~Vanilla Ice

Posted: July 6, 2014 in Music, Vanilla Ice

Take heed, ’cause I’m a lyrical poet
Miami’s on the scene just in case you didn’t know it
My town, that created all the bass sound
Enough to shake and kick holes in the ground
‘Cause my style’s like a chemical spill
Feasible rhymes that you can vision and feel
Conducted and formed, This is a hell of a concept
We make it hype and you want to step with this
Shay plays on the fade, slice like a ninja
Cut like a razor blade so fast, Other DJs say, “damn”
If my rhyme was a drug, I’d sell it by the gram
Keep my composure when it’s time to get loose
Magnetized by the mic while I kick my juice
If there was a problem, Yo – I’ll solve it!
Check out the hook while DJ revolves it.

In My Eyes ~Stevie B

And if you see the sun in my eyes
It should be other no surprise
It’s the light of love inside of me
Now tell me what do you see in my eyes

Rhythm is a Dancer ~Snap

Posted: July 6, 2014 in Music, Snap

Rhythm is a dancer
It’s a soul companion
You can feel it everywhere
Lift your hands and voices
Free your mind and join us
You can feel it in the air


Everybody’s Free ~Rozalla

Posted: July 6, 2014 in Music, Rozalla

We are a family that should stand together as one
Helping each other instead of just wasting time
Now is the moment to reach out to someone
It’s all up to you
When everyone’s sharing their hope
Then love will win through

Welcome to Sunday Night Tunes! Tonight, a mix of my favorite frequencies. Join me. Hope you enjoy. With love and blessings, Iliana the White Rabbit.

Mom Follow-up: So far, so good. Your continued prayers and support is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Like a movie scene in the sweetest dreams
I had pictured us together
Now to feel your lips on my fingertips
I have to say is even better

“Oh, I’m burning! I wish I were out of doors! I wish I were a girl again, half savage and hardy, and free . . . and laughing at injuries, not maddening under them! Why am I so changed? Why does my blood rush into a hell of tumult at a few words? I’m sure I should be myself were I once among the heather on those hills. Open the window again wide: fasten it open!”
