What lies beneath: Whole lotta soul and new beginnings
MLK went for a hike.
February 5, 2021
"We done a lot of living / We working overtime / Don't need another million / You got that gold mine / I love the way you're livin' / 'Cause you so genuine / You got that something special / Didn't you know? / I just need you, you, you!" One of those February days with endless rain - where the only remedy for beating the winter blues is to get out and dance. I put on my headphones, and let me be transported by the groove into Nature. Stepping into the beat, the music made me get up-close with the hibernating plants. In a topsy-turvy world, I was skipping and jumping through the Lasker Rose Garden. Suddenly I saw a strange sword planted in the rich soil. For a brief moment it looked like Excalibur, the legendary sword of King Arthur. And the music-induced visions continued: further on, Merton College was clearly reflected upside down in the flooded playing fields. I couldn't help but laugh and dance as the soul turned into funk; 120 beats of joy. Of course, spring will come, and what lies beneath will blossom into new beginnings.I heard the voice of Jon Batiste: "Oooh! They was cookin' back then, wasn't they? Whole lotta soul! " In this world with a lot of problemsAll we need is a little lovingThank you, thank you, oh, you make meThank you, thank you for your love
Great stuff....& Jon Batiste...🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
