or am I a butterfly

dreaming that I am a man?

A Memphis Blues Club   Leave a comment

A Memphis Blues Club — Abstract Art by kenne

“I’m a bluesman moving through a blues-soaked America, a blues-soaked world, a planet where catastrophe and celebration-
joy and pain sit side by side. The blues started off in some field, some plantation, in some mind, in some imagination, in some heart.
The blues blew over to the next plantation, and then the next state. The blues went south to north, got electrified and even sanctified.
The blues got mixed up with jazz and gospel and rock and roll.”

— Cornel West
