Langston Hughes


Hello JazzLovers

This is my Mood today....

Langston Hughes'

Mother to Son

Well, son, I'll tell you:

Life for me ain't been no crystal stair.

It's had tacks in it,

And splinters,

And boards torn up,

And places with no carpet on the floor --


But all the time

I'se been a-climbin' on,

And reachin' landin's,

And turnin' corners,

And sometimes goin' in the dark

Where there ain't been no light.

So boy, don't you turn back.

Don't you set down on the steps

'Cause you finds it's kinder hard.

Don't you fall now --

For I'se still goin', honey,

I'se still climbin',

And life for me ain't been no crystal stair.

Until Next time Jazzlovers
Keep the beat..

Creativity By Alan Ashley Pitt

A Beautiful Memory

A Very Cold, Wet and Beautiful Day Here.

Hello JazzLovers

Here is where I am today!!!


The person who follows the crowd will usually get no further than the crowd. The one who walks alone is likely to find himself in places no one has ever been before.

Creativity in living is not without its attendant difficulties, for peculiarity breeds contempt. And the unfortunate thing about being ahead of your time is that when people finally realize you were right, they’ll say it was obvious all along.

You have two choices in your life; you can dissolve into the mainstream, or you can be distinct. To be distinct, you must be different, to be different, you must strive to be what no one else but you can be.

Alan Ashley-Pitt.

Well Jazz Lovers,
Until next time!

Happy New Year and Other Hype Which is Life?

Dusted living room!!

Hello Jazz Lovers a Sand Storm Day In Bahrain....

I say often that life is a facinating journey and it reminds me often!! I woke up and got an early morning laugh at just how funny life can be....My group of friends and I did our New years Ever gathering  Thursday Night because here they double the prices on New Years Eve, for the same old thing...We had a wonderful evening...Well I spent New years Eve cleaning the house from top to bottom...( I have a friend arriving for a month tomorrow..) My Friend Martyn did the same......Well this Morning we woke up to a Major Dust Storm!!!! Now everything is covered with enough dust to grow plants!!Martyn was upset to say the least !! I just had a good laugh...Because jazz Lovers that is really life!!! But if anyone thinks I am going to dust once more !!!!No Way, I will say to my friend Welcome to Bahrain!!!

I trully enjoyed the cleaning  yesterday, it was reflection time... I thought a lot about things and about the past and had some good Jazz going so it was a great day....Resolutions?? NoWay that is one of the things I have learned..a resolution is only good the day you make it!! I went to bed early and set the alarm for 11:50 PM, I woke up poured a glass of wine and waited until 2 minutes to 12 and called my new love, I wanted it to be the last voice I heard in 2010 and the first I heard in 2011, I am a hopeless romantic!!! Went back to bed and woke up to a dust storm and a belly laugh....Life is an amazing journey.."The best laid plans"etc..

So Jazz lovers I start this year with much Joy in my heart because I have learned you can not plan life you just have to live it..and be open to what ever it brings you way...This Universe is an amazing place to be...embrace it and enjoy every minute, spread love and it will definitly come back to you!!! I have Friends all over the world that I love and they love me just as i am...I have so much to be grateful for and that is the feeling I am bringing into 2011...Where even a dust storm is beautiful...

Now i need to finish my blackeyed peas!!
