    lends itself to a reading group format. It is thought provoking and tender. Share it with a friend.

  • Kind of Blue - Miles Davis
       WOW IS THE ONLY THING I CAN SAY. I HAVE 3 COPIES OF THIS CD in my massage room, my TV room and one in the car. It is always in rotation in my life. Gives new meaning to "It's All Good."
