Things I Think About on My Drive to Work - Feb 27 2009

 Is there anyone better than Louis Armstrong? The growls, the suave, the lightness, the sweetness, the soul, the rythm and swing. The Reverend Satchmo.

He's like the summer's evening when the sun is low in the sky, the bugs are humming softly, the air is thick and still. It's hazy where you sit with your feet propped up and the heat caresses your bare arms.
He's like the moonlit walk with an old friend you just met as the two of you talk and talk, though not a word is spoken, and you realize it's the best conversation you've had all day.
Louis is the perfect date. People ask that a lot - "What would be your perfect date?" Really, it's not about creating the perfect situation; it's about letting perfection become. It's just about being. That's what Satchmo does - he lets me Be.

That's magic.
