I talk too much.

I admit it; and of course many have said that generally, in quality and quantity, we talk too much. Nevertheless, peace to you, Dear Reader. Which do you prefer? To talk about the past...? There are many, or at least several, once fond memories of the top of the Twin Towers. Where does one place those reflections?
Shall we talk about the present... or, the future? This post comes about amidst a significantly reflective period for yours truly. My apologies for the lateness in coming; nonetheless, I've allowed myself to wade in, and out of, the water. Having been a New Yorker for most of my adulthood, and then having been a New Orleanian for the increasing future, the two weeks between “8/29” and “9/11” will remain a time of deep, inward, and intuitive reflection. It may be called, a habit.
Habits are negotiable. I will be “duckin' out” of this blogosphere until further notice. (I expect to be surrendering to Facebook soon.) I will be focusing more attention on the bandstand, the stage and, perhaps the recording studio. Thus, let this be a farewell from me, to you with gratitude for reading and caring. Nevertheless, before we part from here, there are some bits of information that I'd like to share with you.
Congratulations to the New Orleans Saints for their thrilling season opener victory. I'm so grateful that we made it, and are continuing the climb. Peace to New Orleans; peace to the land.
I would be utterly remiss if here I was not to acknowledge that, on Sunday, September 11, 2005; I met a true and loyal friend – the type of friend that is good to have in life. Linda Cronin-Gross took me into her home, and gave me a guest room because I couldn't have my house then. We have had some terrific past and; we will have our beautiful futures.
I read a compelling article about a Muslim woman, and her life in the passed nine years. In case you missed the story of, Hadidjatou Karamoko Traoré and her sons, you can find it here
In closing, I will say that yes, “God is great! There is no god but God.” (The words of an African freed from slavery.) I'd like to also point out, perhaps remind of, the words of Peter Tosh, “Mighty God is a living man.”
What is the quality of your living... man?!
Peace & Pops,
