Sometimes we get stuck seeing things our way. Would you like to see some things through another set of eyes? Maybe it will make you think and stretch or maybe just chuckle or shed a tear. Here is my world through my eyes...

Monday Music #10: Mars Lasar: At the end of the day
Mars Lasar is a well known musician with 22 individual albums to his credit. Mars was born in Germany and raised in Australia. He became fascinated with music at age 11 and by 14 was confident in his music. He and his two brothers (he is a middle child) started practicing as a band. He played the synthesizer while his older brother played the guitar and his younger the drums. They started playing around their neighborhood and then in shopping centers and finally started getting paid in a restaurant and at wedding receptions.
The rest is history as they say.
This album seems designed to provide some relaxation when you return home from work. The song and the album are the same title. Some relaxation music is very slow and calm, while this has some jazz components that seem to grab you at whatever level of excitement or anxiety you are at and then bring you to a more relaxed state. I like this album a lot. Although I am not familiar with all his albums, I have enjoyed all of the ones I have listened to. His Christmas music is very nice as well (I consider myself a Christmas music aficionado).
Here's the video which is a single picture allowing the music to be the star.
