    I admit I’ve drifted away quite awhile. i cull lots of my music from blogs, and your format doesn’t allow easy downloading, so I guess it’s selfish, but I’ve been back reading recently (you found my Jules comments). But as I was just listening to Mahal’s “Fishin’ ” and Cockburn’s “Lions”, I found this:
    “When I was little, I was filled with wonder and made new discoveries all the time. The world was still fresh and unfamiliar. I got older and the mysteries disappeared but not the wonder. I love to sit on my deck in the evening and watch the fireflies in the backyard flit among the trees like fairies taken to wing. The male gold finches are so bright and beautiful they take my breath away. I remember the hummingbird at my feeder. I couldn’t take my eyes off it. A starry night is another wonder, a night so bright you can read by the light from the heavens. The summer meteor showers in August are so amazing I say things like, “Wow,” out loud but never figure anyone hears me as all the other houses are usually dark. Thunder and lightning and a heavy rain are favorites of mine. I watch from the window and see the sides of the street flooded and filled with swirling rain. Sometimes the rain is light enough that I can sit outside under the umbrella and not get wet. The rain hits the umbrella and that is among the best of sounds.

    Getting older doesn’t ever mean losing our sense of wonder. The beauties of the world are still here. We just have to remember to look.”
    and I remembered why I like to visit here…it’s not just the music (tho that’s always presented with taste and respect), it’s because you present yourself each day with such honest observations…life is a shared experience. Thanks.

      Wow, your comment is wonderful and has made my day. Lots of times I sit here for a while and think about what I might want to say while other times the thoughts just jump out of my head. Some days are like that.

      I find the world to be the most amazing place even if I’m sitting on my deck or just sitting in the den. I think it has always been like that way for me. As a kid, I didn’t think much about it. I just took it all in, but now I consider myself amazingly blessed.
