Today is Thanksgiving in the United States. On this day we traditionally reflect on the things that we are thankful for and I would like to extend that tradition to this Blog. The following are some of the big things that I am thankful for today.
- To live in the United States – still very much a work in progress but still moving forward
- To have Barack Obama as our president for four more years
- To have this blog as an outlet for my love of music
- To have met Gerard (a faithful reader of this blog and a great online friend) via this blog
To express my thanks, I give you the absolute funkiest piece of work by the amazing Sly and the Family Stone, Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)…..
Thanks to all of this blog’s readers for letting me be myself!
I’m a bit late with my reaction, but…Thank you for your blog and for the chances to listen to beautiful music and some fine lyrics. I hope you had a fine Thanksgiving and it gave you enough energy to keep on the interesting work on your blog.
By the way, I think you’re giving me too much credits in your post. Your blog and your music and your political enthousiasm keeps me going on in visiting your blog, so the credits are yours!
As a “thank you for your inspiration” I’ll try to send you some music from Solomon Burke & De Dijk.
De Dijk (a Dutch group with a name that could be translated in The Dike, just important means for keeping the water outside the low countries) made a CD with Solomon Burke in Holland at the eve of his passing away at the airport of Schiphol/Amsterdam. RIP Solomon Burke.
Wow, I feel like Christmas has come early this year! Thanks so much for the music….I will share it on the blog in the coming months.
