“Drivin’ in my car,
Smokin’ my cigar,
The only time I’m happy’s
When I play my guitar”……………N.S.U. by Jack Bruce

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine.

I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.
