He's got a RIGHT to sing the blues!

Oh my! I found this wonderful quote on and I absolutely love it:

I merely took the energy it takes to pout and wrote some blues.

-- Duke Ellington

The meditative tradition teaches us that nothing is wasted and that includes any feelings that we may have. This observation about pouting is one really good example!


  1. Dear Ellie,

    I am wondering if I read this right... on another person's blog you (I believe) said that you were an Episcopal Solitary in the Diocese of Oklahoma. Is this correct?

    The reason I ask is because I am an Episcopal Solitary in San Diego. Could we correspond?

  2. This reminds me of a video someone else posted today.

    If you don't want to watch the whole thing scroll about 2/3 way through. The "punch line" is at the end.

  3. Oh my, Tom. That is really good. Thanks for posting the link.

  4. So good! And here's another of your great images, too.
