Just a small snippet of new music from Stephen Duros from his CD Urban Flamenco. The cd has been on repeat mode between house, car and work. I had the pleasure of meeting him some years back and he couldn't be any nicer and so happy to speak with new fans.

Adele - Set Fire To The Rain (Live at The Royal Albert Hall)

CANNOT get enough of this song and her voice. Just ordered CD/DVD
Live from Royal Albert Hall. I just love this song and the lyrics! She rules!!

...but there's a side to you that I never knew...and all the games you'd play
you would always win...but I set fire to the rain...

kind of makes you want to start a big bonfire in the rain!

Cannot wait to see her at the Grammys and I hope her voice is bigger
and better after her surgery.

my niece Erika took this photo today and it's one of my favorites of the two of them. Parents have been married 55 years and one of the sweet things I remember is that mom & dad always held their hands together-in good times and in bad. If you ask the two of them how they stayed together after all these years they will telll you it was their faith in eachother and in God.

Happy 55th Wedding Anniversary

to my mom and dad. Such a gift of honor and pride you have given to our family over the years. I can't believe it's already been 5 years since the 50th anniversary celebration. I remember that day like it was yesterday. Our family is truly blessed!

is the word of the day... "the aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete".
