Moderately risky and life-celebrating for over 40 years

Early Monday Morning
Just as sun begins to come up countless mud-covered revelers in Trinidad will be celebrating J'ouvert, the opening of Carnival. J'ouvert is for everyone because mud is free, whereas the fancy costumes required by the bands can be quite costly. Music and bodies will pulse wildly.
On the other hand, I will be dragging my tired self out of bed and hoping I can get my pulse pumping enough to wake up for the commute to work. Since I can't be in Trinidad enjoying the party I will have to make do with my CD of Carnival tunes playing during my drive. Here's a bit of a song to celebrate my heart's homeland.
