One Summer Ago

Came across this photo, taken with a phone camera, and I can’t be still by just staring at it. Why do we love the sun, sands and sea salt atmosphere? Summer sweethearts.

Song of 23 October 2014

“Soul Shine”
The Allman Brothers Band.
Took notice of this particular song which was written by guitarist Warren Haynes who shared vocals with Gregg Allman. That southern thing, loving it personally because it is gripping but just easy and meaningful as well. Will remain as long as forever in my southern jambalaya playlist.
Album: Where It All Begins
Released 1994

Letter to Sonja

January 14, 2014

Dear Sonja,
First of all, I want to let you know that I am smiling at this very moment because as I start to scribble this pen (yeah I need to write you a letter – I am pleased to write you!) your smiling face just started to surface in my mind…and so my facial muscles just moved and created that smile in my face as well, just like yours.
I may not say it but your smile is a significant symbol to me, undeniably that is your beauty. And deeply, your smile is a mark of your strength – you are a young woman of endurance. You are so strong that you don’t realize you lift me whenever I am weak and off to the ground. I know we go through a lot and you carry that in you …with a smile. I am always right to say that you are my rock!
You have grown up from just a little girl and is now my best friend . You and your sister are my greatest blessings. Thank God. I know I am a crazy momma too! But see, God loves crazy mommas like me, coz He gives us amazing daughters like you are!
Oh my Sonja, I just want to thank you for your understanding and sweet love…please be more by living the way you imagine, the way you believe, the way you dream and you will achieve the desires of your heart with faith in God.
My life for having you is more than happy…it is meaningful!
I love you and will always will. Keep us in your heart, we will stay there forever.

Your le best Mama! 😊
P.s. Kisses

Top albums (?)

Lets check this out and enjoy the good life!

Bob Dylan Wrote Propaganda Songs


A few days ago I posted the first 20 in my Top 40 Albums of 2012 (check it out here).  The first half of the list is always easier to compile than the final 20.  With this, the top half of the list, I find myself swapping albums from one spot to the next, trying to refine my list to the perfect order. Of course, this “perfect order” is never truly found. On one day I’d much rather listen to my number 17 than my number 5 and vice versa. I can promise you, all of these albums are fantastic.  In order to come up with a definitive order, I took into account the overall significance of an album, not just which has the best collection of songs, but which is the perfect album – the themes, the order of the songs, the cultural significance. Within those parameters…

The joy of being Hannah.

The delight to be free and enjoy being a child.

The delight to be free and enjoy being a child.

This is my girl, she spent summer in my hometown last year. I capture this photo of  her playing, exploring and was so happy doing things that she doesn’t normally do when we are back home in the metro. I am glad that I am able to give her the same childhood as mine. Always glad, real and in my grassroots.
