It is really fun to be home alone, more especially when MADAM EVE is not around. I love my privacy, and I enjoy being alone, but, since I moved in with my doll, I don’t think I cherish much of my privacy and space like I used to before; I have to admit women play a pivotal role in our lives, they spice it, they make us whole, most importantly women bring out the best in us. Yes, happy mother’s day to all women, I hope it’s not too late.
Now, I am listening to something very nice, something for grown folks like me of course, this guy has played the piano all his life, he even founded The crusaders, with Max Spinner, the Crusaders as you know, has contributed largely to the world of music especially the jazz-fusion genre. They produced one of the finest guitarists, Mr Larry Carlton. Yeah! Larry Carlton, get a copy of his soulful compilation the best of Larry Carlton. My favourite has always been Mr Joe Sample, I first heard about Joe Sample from a mentor and friend, Mr Dan Molefe, Analytical chemist and lecturer, from the University of Pretoria, this man knows his music, and I fell in love with his music instantly.
I have only two albums of his music, the first one I bought is called “old places, old faces” and the other album is called the “Joe Sample, Platinum Collection”.
Currently playing on my stereo is a song called “Black and White”. Inside the cd cover, Joe, wrote commentary notes about this song, it goes like this, “Educational! This was a milestone in my development! One white man, one black man taught me that the only thing I could depend on was myself. I vowed at the age of fifteen that I would never again have a boss man controlling my life. The black and white keys of the piano would help me fulfil that promise”
Before I forget, I am still reading the Anatomist, Mr Anthony Sampson; yes this is the man who made the Queen of England cry. I am on a chapter called the Boss from Hell, this chapter seemingly focuses on multinational corporations and those profiteering from these shady organisms. Tell you more on this later, for now let me take a sip.
I have Mr Hansa Pilsner by my side, and we are having a pleasant conversation, I could not have asked for a better companion, and as assuring as mister pilsner, the kiss of the saaz hop, it is truly refreshing.
