Happy Born Day Stevie Wonder!

Today is Stevie Wonder's birthday and I am truly glad to be able to have lived in the same time/space/continuum. Why? Because his music is amazing. As a children growing up in our household, our Mother would put on one of Stevie Wonder's albums, playing them until they warped!
Some would say that Stevie Wonder's music is prophetic, therapeutic and can cause you to reflect on your life - Lyrics that soothe the soul, make you happy, making you want to jump up and dance, put you in the mood for love, or, sit down and make you take a long hard look at the World; Stevie Wonder's music can make makes you think about current events, religion, the sun and the moon, rocket jets, or even random acts of kindness - your present life and contemplate on one's future.

Side bar: I met Stevie Wonder in the lobby of the Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills (A Four Seasons Hotel) - thus the photo of the lobby.

So I'm taking a moment to reflect, with Sissy(my sister), on the life and the legacy of Stevie Wonder. Congratulations Stevie, on receiving an honorary degree from Tulane University, New Orleans, LA!

We love you Stevie Wonder!
