You can imagine. Our ancestors must have had a troubling time getting to, 11. Nonetheless, it was assuredly a healing time for them once they did eventually reach one more.
Greetings once again, Dear Reader. Truly, a happy new year to you. Several years ago, I came to the conclusion that, happiness is highly overrated. I say: go for the joy and ecstasy. We have been told; there's always more.
Nevertheless, given that we are on the discussion the time required for us to make a trip around the Sun; May your trip and travel around in 2011 be an overall happy one. And, may you and I be within a peaceful, healthy, and prosperous point in our journeys once this cycle is complete over the remaining 354 earthly spins.
Ten had us spinning like a top!
We won; we lost. Spoke: “Hi, nice to meet you!” Heard: “Love you.” and “Glad you made it thru.” We said good-bye.
Lena Horne. Abbey Lincoln. James Moody...
There wasn't a chance for me to say, good-bye to friend & colleague, Drex Brumfield. To put it simply, it is one of those situations wherein I would have prefed to offer him more love. It reminds me. Love/Life is so precious and worthy; why not turn it up to “11” and avoid pity.
That equation seems to remain as I remember also the great New Orleans drummer, Bernard 'Bunchie' Johnson – one of the nicest people that I have ever met. (and man... could he groove it!)
New Orleans' Holidaze 2010 has been quite a whirlwind tour! Of course it is a blessing to see friends and family here in New Orleans.
