Simple life pleasures


The first taste of frozen milk


Afoot in the snow

Shadow Play


Shadows of play

From today

Reaching out 

Towards yesterday

Without delay

To bring about

A new tomorrow

Without sorrow.

Soul Funk Crusader

Here is a little funk for the evening folks…have a good night, but before you go say to yourself…

“When I leave a room, it’s gonna be footprints of funk wherever I stepped, because I’m a soul funk crusader.” (Big Boi)

…..and remember your essence! Then…

“Put a glide in your stride, a dip in yo’ hip and come on up to the mothership.” (George Clinton)


Another Play Into Another Day

Performed by: Emiliana Torrini


Let’s stay awake
And listen to the dark
Before the birds
Before they all wake up

It’s the ending of a play
And soon begins another
Hear the leaves applaud the wind


See the sun come rising
And white winds start to fly
Like strings of pearls
In the fiery sky

I don’t want to close my eyes
Don’t want to leave the stage now
Hear, the leaves applaud our stay


Lend me your wings
And teach me how to fly
Show me when it rains
The place you go to hide

N’ the curtains draw again
N’ bow another day and
the leaves applaud the wind
