Morrie Morrison Orchestra – “Goodbye Little Girl Goodbye”

James Baldwin – The Giver (for Berdis) – A Poem

If the hope of giving is to love the living, the giver risks madness in the act of giving. Some such lesson I seemed to see in the faces that surrounded me. Needy and blind, unhopeful, unlifted, what gift would give them the gift to be gifted? The giver is no less adrift than those … Continue reading James Baldwin – The Giver (for Berdis) – A Poem

Barry White – “I’m Gonna Love You Just A Little A Little More Baby”

"I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little A Little More Baby" is one of Barry's greatest hits.
