                                 I give you the RV Calypso

     
On this date in 1975, JOHN DENVER released his ninth studio album ‘Windsong’ in the UK (Oct 18, 1975)
NOTE: The video here is album track and single CALPSO, a tribute to Jacques-Yves Cousteau and his research ship, the Calypso.
Windsong was released at the peak of John Denver’s career, and rode to Number One on the strength of his previous success, and the epic “Calypso,” which happened to provide the touchstone for the album. Essentially, Windsong is an album about communing with nature, and an overall thematic thrust is missing from many other Denver records. There may not be that many songs that match “Calypso,” but many come close, helping elevate Windsong into Denver’s front rank of albums.
CALYPSO
This song is about the ship Calypso, which was bought by Jacques-Yves Cousteau and converted to an oceanographic ship.
Cousteau wanted to understand “The silent world” better, in order to protect it.
“To live on the land we must learn from the sea” – Cousteau was the first to do research on pollution and its effects on the sea and received many honors for his accomplishments.
John Denver cared deeply about nature and this song was a tribute to both Calypso and her captain and their valuable work.
Denver wrote the chorus to this song when he was on board the Calypso. He struggled to complete the song, spending months trying to write classical-sounding verses to a sea shanty chorus. He was about to abandon the song when he got the idea for the words when he was skiing. Denver got off the slopes quick and jumped in his Jeep, where he drove home to get his ideas on paper and complete the song.
The song features the sounds of ship bells, which is heard in the instrumental introductions before both two verses, in which Milton Okun’s orchestral arrangement, featuring strings and winds, are heard impersonating the sounds of the oceans and seas.

About Dreams, we all dream at night and if it was a really good dream, you might remember it. Chasing one’s dreams can be Just as important. after being a Corrections Officer for 15 years and taking a disability retirement. I was told I can still work the exception was that I could never have a job working any kind of security again. So, I got a job at Sears as a parts clerk. That job lasted 5 years. So in 2000 I than decided that I was going to try to chase my dream as a real-estate agent, my Celestine did not think I could pass the test. the day of the test I finished it before my time limit and walked out she asked if I needed a breathing treatment, I said No I just finished the test. about 15 minutes later I was informed that I did in fact passed the test I scored 87 on the test passing was 75.
Celestine asked if we could stop at Boarders bookstore which was near the testing site, I said yes, I went and had a cup of coffee she disappeared I presumed she was looking for a certain book she was not what she was doing was buying me a gift.
that gift was this Dreams Mug.

My beautiful picture

in 2021 that mug slipped out of my hand and broke, and yes, I cried over that breaking. Right after that my cousin Keith called, he asked what’s the matter I told him I just broke my favorite mug. He said I can fix it, come over with it and he was able to glue it back together. so now it sits on my computer cabinet next to my monitor holding my pens pencils and assorted stuff. i than decided i needed a new Dreams Mug and found this one, that I use to drink my coffee.
