Vibes, Hope & Grateful Nods


Recommended Posts

Just thought it might be worth channeling some energy towards the musicians who inspire us who are fighting for their recovery or who have lost that battle.  

Recognition, acknowledgement, whatever seems fit I suppose.  I hope the extent of the impact somehow remains minimal....

 

RIP Ellis Marsalis, New Orleans Jazz Piano Legend, (father of Branford and Wynton)

Love and light to John Prine....I hope that they are able to keep him in stable condition on a respirator long enough for his body to rest as much as possible with the hopes that his immune system will pull through.  I'm no medical doctor....but I do know from personal experience that "stable" is still very touch and go territory.  Wishing John and his family strength and grit....

RIP Toots 💓

This one is hitting me today. The end of an era. The old guard of roots reggae is moving on....i hope that can only amount to a release of positive energy to be taken up in this world as it's needed. 

 

I want you to know that I am the man
Who fight for the right, not for the wrong
Going there, I'm growing there
Helping the weak against the strong
Soon you will find out the man
I'm supposed to be

Also sending vibes, hope & a nod to the venues that keep trying to get back up despite what the government keeps throwing at them through inequitably targeting them in comparison to other industries
