Happy 2020 Everyone, 2020 means perfect vision
and I wish that for all the world.
On Thanksgiving Day, 2019, my wife Maria and I took a New Orleans Flight, to Seville Spain. All of our belongings, Clothes, Kitchen Stuff, Paintings, Sentimental artsy stuff, and all of my music equipment, 4 guitars, 3 Saxophones, 3 keyboards, Sound equipment, 30 hard drives, and tons of computer things, all on a ship out of the port of Mobile AL. To Malaga Spain, where it arrived by truck at 8:00 AM Christmas eve morning, 3 strong guys helped us unload a 20 foot cargo container, that could barely make it through the 500 year old streets of our village, of Palos de la Frontera, The strawberry capitol of Europe.
A huge and challenging undertaking, with so many details, with 55 huge containers inside the 20 foot one that goes on a crane on a ship.
After a month of getting organized, my studio is about 90% in full operation, and already doing sessions for some of my long term clients.
Palos is also the home of the Brothers Pinzon, who set sail with Christopher Columbus out of Palos, in 1492, that changed everything. We are excited and challenged by this new chapter in our lives, and learning from the amazing culture of Spain, where my wife was born in 1963.
A week ago Sunday, Jan. 5, the 3 Kings of Orient Are, came parading down our street, Throwing out trinkets, from their floats, with brass bands, Dancers, and a great celebration of the Epiphany, that also starts Mardi Gras in New Orleans, Being from Louisiana, I Couldn’t resist blasting some Satchmo out the window, as the parade passed by my front row seat on the balcony of our house!
Maria and I would like to wish all of our friends in South Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, BC Canada,
and of course LA, and the SF Bay area, many blessings, health and prosperity, Thank you for your love and support.
