"Amazing Grace", Aretha Franklin's best selling musical project ever is finally being turned into a concert film. I have purchased the CD twice, and the first time I was going through some hard times... Aretha's version of "Old Landmark" saved me and still gives me chills when I hear her "sang it!". See my poem "Brown Suga Baby". Anyway, I am glad Sydney Pollack documented the recording of "Amazing Grace"... if it is the last movie I go see or the last DVD I ever purchase... I have lived! Here's the trailer.(The CD also features sermons from Aretha Franklin's late father, the Rev. C.L. Franklin - I am also hoping there is footage of him included in the film.)

You can't deny that the lyrics are poetically beautiful. I've always considered this my summer love song... it's so gentle, and puts me in a content and loving mood.

I love you Friday! Send some love back.... ;-)

15 minutes.

I got 15 minutes
To relax, de-stress,
Unpack my mind
And clean out the closets
Of clothes that
Are not mine...

I hide away for 15 minutes.

Stories, issues, and damp tissues,
Unnwillingly connect with me.
So for 9 hours each day
I "absorb" you.
But I find solace in 15 minutes.

15 minutes.
