Louis Armstrong

A Purple Heart for Louis Armstrong because he lived fully and brought his gifts to the World!

Louis Armstrong mesmerized me from the first time I saw him on the Ed Sullivan Show in the 1950’s. People called him “Sachmo” and some called him “Pop’s”. He played his trumpet in a way that beaconed my heart to open to the love and goodness around. When he sang “A Wonderful World” I believed him and still believe that we can create that if we try. He was a loving father figure or uncle. No child ever has too many loving adults in their lives.

In a writing class, in 1998, we were assigned an exercise to just let ideas and thoughts pour from our minds and down our arm onto the paper. My children’s book “Louis Armstrong’s Trumpet” poured from my soul even though I was not consciously thinking of the “Father of Jazz” at that time.
