Archie Bell at Ken and Mary’s Blues Project — Part III   Leave a comment

Houston, Texas has a lot of legionary musicians, not the lease is Archie Bell. You all timers, like myself will remember the 50’s & 60’s group, Archie Bell & the Drells. Remember “Tighten Up?” When it comes to great R&B, Archie Bell is among the best! His appearance at Ken & Mary’s Blues Project — The Last Waltz was a real blessing for those of us who have attended the Blues Project concerts over the years.

There’s more to come.

Blues Project — Part II   Leave a comment

Blues Project Art blogKen & Mary’s Blues Project — The Last Waltz
Computer Art by kenne

Down the east Texas road,
there is rain in the wind
as the musicians’ setup
for an evening of the blues
with friends gathering 
the last time at 
Ken and Mary’s Blues Project,
the best house concert ever.

In recent years we’ve missed
some of the concerts in
the woods 
having moved
to the desert southwest,
then last February we received
word of the “Last Waltz”
for the Blues Project —
plans were made to immediately.

With Coleman cooler,
yard chairs 
and
cameras in tow

we walked over old
bottle caps toward the  

Blues Project stage,
to be greeted with 
hugs and kisses — Welcome!

Mary announced the food
was ready and Ken shared some
background on the beginning
of what became the Blues Project.
Not long after 
the music began,
lighting lit up the darkening clouds
with thunder adding to
the magical evening.

Other than an occasional
drop or two, the music played on
until, as if the plugged was pulled,
the dark sky began to fall.
A rain delay was called
as the tarps were brought out
to covered the equipment.

Using our smartphones
we could see radar showing
the rain would be lasting
for an hour or more.
As has happened in the past,
the musicians gathered inside
to continue an evening of music.

Most of those who remained
were inside or on outside porches,
knowing the best of the evening
was yet to come —
jamming the night away
on a hot, humid night
in the piney woods of east Texas.

It may be the last waltz
for the Blues Project
but that don’t mean
the party is over,
the music still plays on
and on, and on — may
we stay forever young.

We’ve got to go, but our friends will stick around.

A mushroom
alone 
burrows out 
of the ground
pine nettles
hang from its
head
entering a new
world
out of darkness
into the
light of day.

A cactus blossom 
greeting
early morning
walkers
as the sun rises
casting
long shadows
across
the Catalinas,
opening
not as a rose
lasting
for days
providing only
one brief moment
passing by
I share the
moment.

Wild women and

wildflowers

turned on

by red and blue

each not for

plucking

only looking —

do not fear

roaming eyes.

To Make Soft   Leave a comment

Virginia & Outer Banks 2013Computer Art by kenne

To Make Soft . . .

Words are nothing,
feelings are everything.

Struggling to share feelings
placing petitions of desire

at the door of your heart,
shut not the door.

Love will break your heart,
scorn not what we do.

Looking for peace of mind
the truth will set us free

explaining not what is real,
too complicated to follow

knowing not our time to go
lifetime is no time at all.
