"I'd like to be remembered when I'm gone from this earthly life for my efforts to bring joy,
happiness and a time of freedom from everyday cares to other human beings.
Just think of me as the redbird in a winter worn bush on a snowy day--
a bit of color in a-sometimes dreary world." -- Elvis Presley

(quote taken from "We Remember, Elvis" by Wanda June Hill)

Beautiful words said by a beautiful man! :D The card is really cute too. :) Does it mean that Elvis was nearby today since I saw a redbird sitting atop one of the bushes in my VERY snowy backyard this morning? :? :) I looked out my backdoor thinking about how gray it was outside due to the really bad snowstorm we had this past weekend and wishing for some kind of color outside other than a gray sky and a white ground. Then all of a sudden, a cute little redbird flew down and landed on this pathetic little bush in our backyard and I just smiled and thought to myself "what a perfect touch of color surely sent by God to brighten a gloomy winter day." :D Thank you SO much for posting this Blue Moon. :D I've always thought that redbirds stand out so beautifully and look almost majestic or regal in the snow and now I know why. :wink: :D

Hi Maryinthemorning. Well I can't help but think per your post that there is some synchronicity going here! I mean I post the quote from Elvis the day you see a red bird on a dreary winter day. I think this is more than just coincidence.

Elvis was surely a touch of color sent by God to brighten our lives. :P

More syncronicity: Last night, past my usual sleeping time due a late joyful cards game with family visiting for some days, already in bed, I had the impulse to take Wanda's book and read the very last pages where there appear that text on Elvis' words. The reference to the red bird called my attention very specially (it was my second lecture on it) and brought to my mind the rembrance of a picture Maia posted somewhere with a beautiful red bird!

First thing in the morning meanwhile the family is getting ready to go for a car ride to Sevilla, I open the Forum page and see a pm message from BlueMoon in which she tells me about the syncronicity about the red bird!!

Of course I have my interpretation: These times are and will be like a worn and cold winter day. We have to find the beauty of Life in them and the Hope for the time that will come. El'vis is calling our attention on it, in a way it gets fixed to our mind.

Good point Amanda. Not only should we find beauty & hope in a cold & pain filled world, but also we ourselves should be "color" so to speak to others. And red represents love and sustaining lifeblood/energy.
