Sun Ra.... excerpt: 'A Recipe(less) Recipe'....
In my recent research into the fascinating life, music and self-fabricated 'mythology' that remains the legacy left to us of the famous Jazz-Big Band Keyboardist/ Leader Sun Ra (b. 1914 - d. 1993), I came across and wish to present here the following literary account. It takes place during the early 1960's, in downtown New York City, @ the Original, 'Sun Ra Arkestra' Headquarters, called: 'THE SUN PALACE'. This large house/…

Through a series…

Jesus promises that when we step out to be the hands and feet, he will go with us.
I am stepping.
I leave in a few rapidly-approaching hours for a short trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
Not the PV Americans visit on summer vacation trips with family.
Not PV of beaches and surf and sand.
