It is the end of summer, practically.... Despite tornadoes, earthquakes and Hurricane Irene all I
want to do is Sit on the Dock of the Bay. Otis really had something there; it is the ultimate key to enjoying life and taking stock of the surrounding beauty. I hope he made time for it.
As our senses are bombarded with external stimuli and our days get filled with 'things to do' that languid pace of summer noticeably quickens. I am taking much pleasure in looking back; you could say 'wastin' my time away'. I am reminded of Otis Redding who was born on September 9; a birthday that is one week to the day later than my eldest son's birthday. Significant to me as my son turns 26 - the year Otis Redding was when his life was cut short tragically in a plane crash. Otis Redding (1941-1967) - an American Soul singer/songwriter and record producer of the first posthumous Number One Single in US Chart history selling 4 million copies worldwide. He died one month before its release.
Wouldn't you all agree we need more Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay. More... Much more........
