Well folks..there may be some radio silence for a few days now. Take a minute to think about Mom this coming weekend. Tell the Moms in your life how important they are to you. Every once in a while my birthday falls on Mother's Day (like this year) and in years past I would be a little bummed out to share a day with all the Moms, but you know, I couldn't think of a better way to spend the day. I am so blessed to have so many wonderful women in my life.
As I prepare to leave on a much needed vacation I thought I'd post this video - a video that Heather posted and I felt it summed up the true expression of gettin' out of dodge...
I've always been a HUGE fan of exotica and I have hours upon hours of music to lull me into a exotic stupor. Here's some information on the tune from Wikipedia, ""Quiet Village" is an exotica instrumental that was originally written and performed by Les Baxter in 1952. In the liner notes to his album,Ritual of the Savage (Le sacre du sauvage), Baxter described the themes he was conveying in the work:
[t]he jungle grows more dense as the river boat slowly makes its way into the deep interior. A snake slithers into the water, flushing a brilliantly plumaged bird who soars into the clearing above a quiet village. Here is a musical portrait of a tropical village deserted in the mid-day heat.
