Happy Mother's Day, my Sisters...

I was in a club in San Antonio, Texas when the music stopped -- the DJ announced that, Tupac Amaru Shakur was dead. When I got home, my sons were asleep. The next morning though, because they loved him and his music so damned much, they sadly told me what I already knew.  It was a bonding moment that I can't even begin to explain (so much love and respect for Afeni Shakur!):



The first time I heard this song from young Mr. Blacc, it was a snot-running-down-my-face affair.  My boys said, "Yeah, we knew you'd love this shit, Mom" --  and they were so right!!:



Happy Mother's Day, my Sisters (particularly those of you with sons cuz  -- "for a woman, it ain't easy tryin' to raise a man").  As commercialized as the day always was, and still is -- know that, without a doubt, there's some real love for you there, from those to whom you gave life!

Sis Deb, I'm glad you are back. Happy Mother's Day to you as well.

Thanks for sharing Aloe Blacc...

Hey Sis Carolyn! Not quite back yet -- just came up for air to wish all my sisters a Happy Mother's Day. Your very welcome! Mr. Blacc's, beautiful homage to his mother -- and the progression of life -- is so dead-on, it's scary! No longer being a stone's-throw from my boys this Mother's Day makes it even more sobering, particularly since I'm turning 58 in a couple months. Actually, the whole CD is pretty good. His voice takes me back, reminds me of when our male singers SANG!

I'm still on the road (on a pit stop in FL right now, but heading to SC by month's end) and still workin' on a "road trip ruminations" post which, I'm sure will be a couple, to a few parts long, given all that's been running around in my head since I last posted! Be patient with me, mkay? :-D
