  4. I truly love this…reminds me of Sunday jamming sessions at a quaint bar in Toronto from 4 to 15 musicians would gather.

  5. Hello,

    I can almost hear the music! Thanks for playing today.

    Happy Blue Monday!

  6. I am not a jazz person. However, this fellow appears to be entertaining everyone well.

      I didn’t used to like jazz either, but as I’ve aged, I’ve come to appreciate it.

  7. I love music, I adore jazz and this photo is perfectly fit for a Blue Monday share! Great words too! I have not written poetry for ages and recently wrote a few things down and shared one at FaceBook today in memory of my sister, whom I lost fourteen years ago today. Thank you for sharing and enjoy your week.

      It was poetry that saved my life eight years ago when my father died. I had written poems off and on for many years, but when I lost my dad, I had to find a way to deal with the grief, and haiku was the way. Now I write daily, without fail.
