Luther Vandross, Kem and Anthony Hamilton playing in the background as I sit at my computer, trying to come up with a subject to write about. Coming into my space this evening, on a low note, all of a sudden feeling real good. Vibing and jamming to that old school R & B. All of a sudden a new song comes on with some jazz music in the background. I only catch the artist name, not the song’s name, Andre Ward. Sounds so smooth. I forgot what I wanted to gripe about. I feel happier than I did, that I know. I love iHeart radio. I’m in Florida but I can listen to the incredible R&B stations in New Orleans and Chicago. Uh oh, Groove Theory now, go head Amel Larrieux… “You are wondering if the words I’m saying are for real…. ”
I can always count on my music to get me to a good place. Back in time or in a fantasy world, but more importantly, it grounds me. It surrounds me with familiarity in a day where it feels so lonely.
