I’m Every Woman –  CHAKA KHAN  ‘Chaka Khan – Chaka Khan – Chaka Khan’


Can’t Get Enough of Your Love – BARRY WHITE – so fine even if it is ‘disco’ I played this record so much back in the day, that I wore it out…

⦿ My Annapolis history

Many years ago I lived in Annapolis Maryland for 2 years.  As a West Coast native, the East held surprizes for me, mainly the sense of history.   I actually met a direct descendant of Miles Standish !
In Annapolis the focal point of the old town was the docks area of the harbor and surrounding  old-town emerging from that. I was unaware at the time of the significance of the docks being the site the auctions of  the humans captured in Africa and transported to America for slavery.  One such person was Kunta Kinte, sold into slavery  in 1767 with the others, at the dock of my town.
But when I was there  ‘Roots’ hadn’t happened yet.
Also interesting to me was the fact the the Contintental Congress had meetings in Annapolis (for a time the nation’s capital) to draft the Declaration of Independence.  They sometimes met at the Maryland Tavern, now known as Middleton Tavern,  which has been in continuous operation since 1750.
It blew my mind to realize I was walking on the same brick street that Benjamin Franklin had walked so long ago ! (and Thomas Jefferson & George Washington as well).   I’m a big fan of old Ben, for his many talents and sharp wit…basically a smart-ass!   I’d read that the other guys wouldn’t let him write anything because they feared he’d slip some veiled smart-assiness into the official documents. . . they had his number.    hahaha

⦿ Mexico – James Taylor (1975)

A lovely record that I associate with a dear friend, now passed on.
I introduced this song to him so now I associate it with pleasant memories.
