Sunday Song – Carlos Santana

carlossantana[1]The first time I heard Carlos Santana he was playing ….. Maria Maria

Influenced by his Latin roots, Carlos Santana is an award winning Hall of Fame guitarist and rock bandleader. H’s been active in the blues and pop song culture for over 40 years.
Santana was born in Autlan de Novarra, Mexico on my birthday July 20, 1947.
His sound is powerful and transports the listener to unimagined heights.

His newest song/video is a collaboration with Jaunes called ‘La Flaca’.

La Flaca Lyrics

En la vida conoci mujer igual a la flaca
Coral negro de La Habana
tremendisima mulata
Cien libras de piel y hueso
40 kilos de salsa
y en la cara los soles
que sin palabras hablan.
que sin palabras hablan.
La flaca duerme de dia
dice que asi el hambre engana
cuando cae la noche
baja a bailar a la tasca
Y bailar y bailar
y tomar y tomar
una cerveza tras otra
pero ella nunca engorda,
pero ella nunca engorda.
Por un beso de la flaca
daria lo que fuera
por un beso de ella
aunque solo uno fuera.

Sunday Song – A Mother’s Prayer

    For those of you who are blessed to have your Mother’s with you, may Mother’s Day be filled with immense joy….!!!!

For those of you have lost your Mother’s, may your day be filled with precious memories of her.

Happy Mother’s Day to All ….!!!!

A Mother’s Prayer (Lyrics)

Isadora & Nicole 540.web

Mothers are the place where LOVE
emerges from the earth
And happiness rings out like bells
in honor of our birth ….

Mothers are the sun that lights
for Life our inner sky
So we may know that we are LOVED
and need not question why …

Mothers are the moon that shines
upon our black despair

So even when we weep, we know
that someones always there …

Mother’s hold their children hands for a short
while but their Hearts Forever

Nobody knows of the work it takes
to keep a home together
Nobody knows of the steps it takes,
nobody knows but a Mother.

Mother’s are Loving
Mother’s are Patient
Mother’s are Giving
Mother’s are Beautiful

No matter which journey
or which of lifes seasons
Mother’s will always be there

If I had a single Flower
for every time I thought of you ….
I could walk in my Garden – Forever Thinking of You.

Heart 665 Red.webLike the Sun and the Moon

Like the sun
You heal me and,
help me to see.

Like the moon
You comfort me,
allow me to sleep.

Like the sun and the moon,
When you enter my room,
there is light, there is peace,
there is LOVE. ©Kelly Gohm

Memories of our childhood are like images on a wet canvas,

they merge until they lose all their shape,

often remaining only as feelings …. ©Brian Maynott

Sunday Song – Flor Palida

If someone tells you a certain
song is important to them,
You should close your eyes,
turn up the volume
and really listen.
By the end of the song,
you will know that person much better.
