Boarding the Coltrane





Boarding the Coltrane

Chasing Trane is like chasing Star Dust

He’s so far ahead that we mere mortals can only gaze in wonder knowing that we can never catch up but always aspire to those levels

Coltrane is a Rainbow in Flight

Every T. Monk.  Every Prophet and Messiah battle inner demons

Charlie Parker


Worship the Music inside the person

Today I am 59

And I am Swept into a Vortex of Possibilities

#1 First and Foremost I want to Thank My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for allowing me to see another year!  Praise God!  I owe any success in my life to the Lord!

  1. First of all Happy Birthday and enjoy the day.Since marrying Mr. Swiss I have been getting older with John Coltrane and one of his friends has a dog called Monk, so you can imagine that jazz moved in on my life. One of the symptoms of being married to a jazz drummer (amateur of course).

    1. Thanks for the Birthday Greetings. I Love Jazz and as I get older my appreciation increases. As one of my coworkers says Jazz is Thought music. This is true for me as I do much of my writing while listening to Jazz.

  2. Hello my friend!! And HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!! 😁😁
    I had your special day in my calendar which just reminded me to write to you…and I found this post!!
    Wishing you peace, DeBorah…and love…and light. May this new year ease your burdens and spread joy! 💜

  3. May your coming year surprise you with the happiness of smiles, the feeling of love and so on. I hope you will find plenty of sweet memories to cherish forever. Happy birthday.

    1. Much appreciation for you. I had a great birthday. Rested. Relaxed. Began three canvasses which will become a future Mixed Media Photo Collage. Enjoying experimenting with acrylic and oil paints. I like Acrylic paint better. Wish I could just paint, take photos and write all day, every day.
