    What a nice record to dream that the sun would shine, the woman in your arms would smile to you and peace would be everywhere. I love all your posts very much, but unfortenately there is very often not the time in my reality to listen to all as I would like. And the sun is not shining, the woman not smiling and no peace under african stars.
    This is a very beautiful record, I have not known before, but now I dont want miss it the whole day. Thank you.
