#aSongForCon 72

I was lost in a world of dreams

Counting every star……………………….

Shining over head……it seems

I was like a shepherds boy

Searching for his lambs here and there and everywhere

You came wowwwwwwwwwwwwwwww, yeah ya captured me…

You and all your charms…………oh……yes you set me free

We kissed…………………………and the world was all aglow

Then my heart cried

ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

i LOVE YOU SO x

#4WindsBlow

It is a strange old world and and no mistake but MUSIC unifies the

4 winds:

Heart, Soul, Body and mind and NEVER fails to deliver.

Looking back over almost a CENTURY of (predominantly), urbane musicology has taught me that.

From the earliest days of New Orleans barrel house right up to the street sounds of London, (where i was born and raised), I have listened, reflected, absorbed and learned more from the universal language than from any other source of human narrative.

I feel like rolling out a theme, starting today.

Where and for how long  the ‘wind‘ blows, nobody knows.
