My Thoughts

Recently I was walking outside during the quarantine after exercising while listening to music, and at some point I got to this song in my random shuffle of my music; and it went well with the moment.

I remember daydreaming about people jamming to this song either inside or outside during the quarantine, from a safe distance of course, I wish the song would have gone on a bit longer because Carlos Santana was doing an amazing job with his guitar solo.

I remember this song from back when it first came out, and I owned the music album back then.

The end,
