The King and I

I was searching for a little stress relief in a last minute cram session…. When what delicious bliss should bear presence upon my ravenous ears….. Little Wing, ripping off the lengths of a Soul Blown Microphone….. tickling and giggling those fret-filling fingers, all the way down to my toes. (Oh, my soul for some blues!) […]

Homage

It was just a walk by, but my side eye caught a glance, Of my silken silouhette, dancing pirouette, broom in hand. From this angle, line of sight, Reflection mirrored in new light.

It is not a fairy tale about how things should be, but a fable that is eerily similar to the way things often are. Please enjoy!
