Dancin’ in the dark

Carlos is One Bad-Ass Mo-Fo!

I was in the presence of greatness and I am still reeling in the euphoria of drums, keyboards, bass, and one bad-ass electric guitar!  Mr. Carlos is 69 (perfect!) and has not lost his phenomenal groove with the instrument of his choice of expression.  Let me assure you that the thrill of being so close to the source of such talent and focus is to be invited on a trip with like-minded souls to another dimension.  If that sounds a little dramatic, it is but the night was truly an honor and a blast to the past for this seventies chick!  I would like to add that the drummer is his current missus and she was absolutely crazy awesome on those bad boys!  I am certain that Mr. Carlos has enjoyed the strength and stamina of those arms on many occasions. 🙂

The event took place at the House Of Blues in Las Vegas and I can tell you that there exists not one bad seat in the house.  HoB still offers General Admission and that is where this music-lovin’ chick prefers to boogie to live music.  Down on the floor, I was a mere five-to-six like-minded bodies from the man himself and if you will please forgive my amateur skills (apparently iPhone and Windows have some issues working together), you will enjoy the video.  Three hours of dancing, sweating, and grooving to the sounds of one talented soul communicating to another through the language of music and I was one happy girl!

There is definitely an encore in the near future…

 

Buck-Naked in Bryce

     What is it about nature that just makes you want to take your clothes off?  Somehow it seems unkind to allow the pristine beauty of fresh air, majestic mountains, hellacious hoodoos, and perfumed pine, to bare their all unaccompanied!  Bryce Canyon, Utah, has some of the most magnificent views and breath-taking beauty that has ever been viewed by this human and it seemed wrong somehow to not join in the spectacle of naked nature…so I did!

     Hiking on one of the marked trails, a companion and I discovered the loveliest little river that when followed, led us to its more hidden beauties: a waterfall!  At the bottom of the falls was a rather large pool that eddied up and over and around the surrounding rocks and within the pool was the most striking jade-blue water; it seemed only a matter of time before clothes were off and we were in!  The pool’s location was somewhat isolated and the fear of others coming upon us was minimal, so we frolicked like children in our birthday suits and it was glorious!  The freedom of splashing around, buck-naked in nature, is one of modern life’s remaining simple pleasures and the experience is not to be missed.  The only thing that would have topped the experience would have been to culminate our swim in doing-the-deed, but alas, the water was too cold and … need I say more?!

The satisfaction of completely un-plugging for a few days, leaving all technology behind, was a salve for the soul that every human should allow themselves to experience on a regular basis.  To know that the outside world cannot intrude upon such a serene and peaceful back-drop was very comforting (and ironic!) and that does not even take into account sleeping under the stars, naked, in the unimpeded blackness of the warm night.  The sounds of birds, cicadas, and chipmunks as they rustled about was the perfect cure for my over-stimulated soul and I reveled in the benefits of its healing powers.  I contemplated the paradoxes of life as I realized that 100-years ago humans were divining ways to enhance their comforts and the contrasting modern culture’s need  to step away from those very same luxuries.  To experience the miraculous effects of healing nature by living outdoors for a few days was glorious!  The sex was awesome, the sleep was sound, and I didn’t even mention how much better the food tasted…!

Did I hear someone say “Road-trip”?

No Wonder We Call Him “The Boss”…

“I get up in the evening

and I ain’t got nothin’ to say

I come home in the mornin’

I go to bed feelin’ the same way…

I ain’t nothin’ but tired

Man, I’m just tired and bored with myself

Hey there, baby

I could use just a little help

You can’t start a fire

without a spark

This gun’s for hire

Even if we’re just dancin’ in the dark…
