Locked myself out of my apartment today while accepting a delivery containing delicious falafel. So there I was standing outside my apt, in a t-shirt, NO SHOES, and food in hand. I took about 10 seconds to weigh my options and started the long trek bare foot to go retrieve my spare keys. Heading down Broadway with no shoes, in a tshirt, and a bag of falafel in your hand people dont think twice in the fact you are very homeless - and im ok with that. I started to jog at one point and saw the sheer terror in the children's eyes. By the time I made it to my spare keys I had eaten 3 of 6 falafels and avoided 430 shards of life threatening glass. All in all it was a pretty good day!

No one can tug at my heart strings like my old buddy Louis. The first CD I ever owned was a Louis Armstrong's greatest hits album from the bargain bin in a Kemp Mill music store, my mom told me to pick whatever I wanted and I just grabbed what felt right. An old black guy with a horn in his hand was apparently very appealing to me - little did I know I would listen to that CD for the next 6 months on repeat. Sometimes you gotta take chances without dwelling on what the outcome could be. Thanks for all the good times Louis, there isn't a day that goes by that I dont think about the impact you've had on my life. Through out my whole life I've tried to chase those feelings I got from listening to that CD for the first time and I've still yet to this day feel it. This is probably one of the reasons I so actively seek out new amazing music, trying to catch a glimpse of something I know I'm probably never going to find again. So we can all thank Louis for my humble music selections reaching tens of thousands of people every week.
