Sailing Away with Music ...

Here's an old photo I never got around to processing ... have many of those, it seems. Makes me want to go sailing again. Alas, today is dark, dreary and drizzly. Not complaining though: we had glorious sunshine yesterday and the day before. Sun will be back. Today's weather is just a welcome license to kick back and do some much needed relaxing.

Listening to the group "America" today.  Love this group.  One of the very first albums I purchased with my hard-earned babysitting money.  I was an odd kid, I guess?  Always listening to music of an older generation.  For some reason, the music in the late 60's and 70's just speaks to me on a spiritual level.  What can I say?  Found some live recording videos of the group on Very cool.  Now playing:  "Tin-man".  Neat to see the group performing, live.  They were so young for such talent.  Love their soulful, poetic ballads.  One of my favorite groups of all-time.  Listening to their music just takes me away ... Perfect for this quiet rainy day.

Hope you're having a good one too! =)

Peace & Love,


P.S.  Not going to put a link to any of the America videos here.  Seems most of the time when I share a link WMG steps in and has the video removed for content violations?  So sad ... How does WMG suppose it's going to promote its artists if they keep systematically slamming everything on the internet?

=) I hear you, Joey. I too like a wide variety of music. Music speaks to your different moods at different times, I think. That being said, there is just something soulful about the music from the "hippie" generation from my point of view. I sense you are someone who gets carried away in the music as well. Music is a fabulous and inexpensive escape in my book. Enjoy!
