What A Week!

What A Week!

So all in all a great week. Weird, but great. So much music, stress and joy, life is very interesting.  We (Rock Soul Radio) had a magic day musically at the Stone Crab fest, and then the Jam in Madeira beach with the Mad Beach Mafia was stellar.

I swear when Glen comes up from behind the soundboard and plays ‘Someone Saved My Life Tonight’ it’s so emotional, cause Terry and Jimmy sing backup and Leo plays percussion and we’re all just kids again, who grew up listening to this stuff. Really a special moment. I’m going to record and video this next Sunday and post it to You Tube. In fact, so much goes on in one week that I think I’ll just wear a GoPro for a week to document. Especially since my first born Ursula is coming home for 13 days to do some singing and filming of the ‘Happy State’ video.  

To wrap up the evening though, I mistakenly read a very depressing post about a three year died at the hands of his parents and the details were so gruesome that I actually started crying in the Daiquiri Shack. What to do with all that despair? Write about it, talk about it. Hope that he and all little children who suffer find peace.  I just don’t understand. So to end this, I say a prayer for the little ones all over the world, past and present.  May there be an end to the suffering of children. I send you love little one. God Bless.
