Hot sax!

If you've not had the experience of a (I believe that's a '68) Chevelle under your fanny, well.  You owe it to yourself to find one and take a drive. This is a 'muscle car'.  A fairly preposterous proportion of steel and horsepower.  A fire breathing dragon and you've got her by the tail!

Check out this link to one of my favorite films made shortly after the era of this car and set in the decade just prior to her birth.   Love the sax.

Oh to have his vocal range!  Freddie Mercury, a mercurial character indeed.  I read that he had some extra molars.  He attributed his voice, in part, to those choppers.

One of two composers who sometimes bring tears to my eyes.  Miss you Freddie.

I wish I were her Nubian Girl

The following is translated from hieroglyphs.  Written about 1100 BC.  I used to think I was the only one who had such thoughts:

I wish I were her Nubian Girl,
 one to attend her (bosom comppanion).
Confidant and a child of discretion:
Close hidden at nightfall we whisper
As (modest by day) she offers
breasts like ripe berries to evening-
Her long gown settles, then bodiless
hangs from my helping hand
Oh, she'll give pleasure! In future
no grown man will deny it!
But tonight, to me, this chaste girl
bares unthinking the delicate blush
Of a most secret landscape,
her woman's body

I mentioned on this post: ,that I envy women a number of things.  That's not to say that I want to be a woman, I just miss the time long ago that I was allowed to stand at the door of the clubhouse and watch.  Occasionally I'd be let in.

This is actually not an oil on canvas but a doctored photo in a series called 'Dream of a maid"  by Kamal Kamil.
