4/29/2012 - The Experiment 2.0 Day 23

Greetings my Friends. Spirits on the rise, Energy good and steady.

Things are getting better. I feel stronger physically and mentally everyday. While I am not where I want to be, I am getting there at a good pace. I have to be patient and let my body heal and heal it is at it's own time.

Today is a really nice day in The Woodlands. I am resting on my patio listening to the birds sing and the hustle and bustle of kids riding down the street on their bikes just being kids.

I am enjoying a nice mug of black coffee. I also have a CD playing low in the background. The group is called "The Gypsy Kings" I really love their music. Here is a little Wikkipedia on them:

"The Gipsy Kings are a group of musicians from Arles andMontpellier, who perform in Spanish with an AndalucĂ­an accent. Although group members were born in France, their parents were mostly gitanos, Spanish Romani people who fledCatalonia during the 1930s Spanish Civil WarChico Bouchikhiis of Moroccan and Algerian descent. They are known for bringing rumba catalana, a pop-oriented music distantly derived from traditional flamenco music, to worldwide audiences. The group originally called itself Los Reyes.
Their music has a particular rumba flamenca style, with popinfluences; many songs of the Gipsy Kings fit social dances, such as salsa and rumba. Their music has been described as a place where "Spanish flamenco and Romani rhapsody meet salsa funk"."
Bamboleo by The Gypsy Kings:

So click on the link to YouTube(above) to listen to what Dave is listening to at the moment. I love music especially the acoustic guitar. It is very soothing to me and I just can sit back on my patio: enjoy nature, the songs of the birds, and a little guitar music playing low in the background all while enjoying a nice cup of Java to take the edge off the slight chill of the morning. PARADISE, pure and simple.................. yes indeed!

Sorry y'all I got a little lost in my peace and tranquility. God is good or should I say God is GREAT!!!

Have a Healthy Day my Friends and Family. No turning back, No fear. Fight for whats Right !!!

Today's Menu: Black Coffee, H20, Seltzer Water, Smoked Turkey with a little Mayo and Dill Weed.
