These are the days of miracles and wonder....
While I sit here surfing Carl is playing the Graceland Video on his computer in the other room, the alarm clock is ringing away and we are on our second cup of coffee.
For you babes out there, the year is 1987 and Paul Simon , late of "Simon and Garfunkle" fame, held a concert in Zimbabwe Africa. This was a celebration of African Music and his album Graceland. At this time, in South Africa, apartheid was the law and blacks and whites were not seen together period. Paul Simon held this incredible concert with Hugh Maskela, Miriam Makeba and introduced the world the South African group Ladysmith Black Mombazo.
This is such uplifting music. You just want to tap your feet. So when the world is getting you down rejoice with this music and think of how things do get somewhat better. "The wheels of change grind exceeding slow."
