Happy Birthday SORA.

December 15, 2012 :: 2 Comments

Our gorgeous boy is 10 years old today.

Yet as we celebrate SORA’s birthday and count our blessings for having him, we mourn the death of 20 young, innocent angels in Newton, Connecticut yesterday.

May peace and sanity be upon us all.

and my love, SORA — thanks for every day of last 10 years.

Just got back from an amazing concert. These people were so generous with their talent and time. Of course I bought the only two vinyl recordings they had brought with themselves.

Happy 4th of July…..

How sad. I started dancing to Donna Summer’s music in Iran, when I was around 12 or 13 years old – Almost 40 years ago! How time flies.

I still remember feeling a bit embarrassed when I was playing “Love to Love you Baby” and my father entered the room. The “ah-uh” in the song seem to take forever, and I was wondering if my father knew what was going on. Little I knew then that my father did not need to speak English to realize what was going on.

Donna Summer’s earlier musics in particular, have always brought a smile to my face. I have multiple copies of some of her recordings, always in hunt for a flawless LP.

Disco days are still in my blood. Yes, I have come to appreciate and love Pegolessi and Xenakis, Ella, and John Zorn, Iva Bittova, and Malcolm Goldstein, and obviously Nami’s music. But Donna Summer has kept her special price in my heart and on my LP shelves.

Thanks for the joy you have given me Donna. Rest in Peace, Donna.
