Home sick today, my carcass on the couch but my mind somewhere in Brazil floating on the silence that surrounds us. The bossa nova explorations of Stan Getz and Joao Gilberto became a huge hit record album in the early sixties, and with the help of lovely Astrud Gilberto earned a number one hit, "The Girl from Ipanema." That's what I'm listening to today, and while I may be under the weather (and what strange weather to be under) I'm drifting somewhere around Brazil--or maybe visiting this swinging, ultra-cool party and sipping an ice cold martini in an imaginary country of the mind.
