As I stated in another posting I have a great relationship with dear old Papa Alegba.  He was the first Lwa that I felt the presence of and it still gives me goosebumps when I feel him. 

I have had a variety of Papa stories but the ones that pop out to me the most I would love to share with you all.  My first experience actually will always remain in my mind.  I commute often in my job and I remember just feeling like total crap.  Everything was going wrong, nothing was going right, it was a never ending yo yo cycle for me.  I just was driving and decided I would talk to Papa about it, so I did.  I of course ended up driving and crying at the same time and I remember saying out loud.....are you even listening?  Are you even there?  and of course I got nothing at that moment, so I turned my radio on and this song started playing that I had never heard before.  It sounded like a kid's song.  It was called "Playground in My Mind", and then it said my Hd's name, and I just knew this was Papa. 

I am going to post the lyrics:

When this old world gets me down
And there's no love to be found
I close my eyes and soon I find
I'm in a playground in my mind
Where the children laugh and the children play
And we sing a song all day.

"My name is Michael, I got a nickel
I got a nickel, shiny and new
I'm gonna buy me all kinds of candy
That's what I'm gonna do"

See the little children
Living in a world that I left behind
Happy little children
In the playround in my mind.

Oh the wonders that I find
In the playground in my mind
In a world that used to be
Close your eyes and follow me
Where the children laugh and the children play
And we sing a song all day.

"My girl is Cindy
When we get married, we're gonna have a baby or two
We're gonna let them visit their grandma
That's what we're gonna do."

"My name is Cindy
When we get married, were gonna have a baby or two
We're gonna let them vist their grandma
That's what we're gonna do."

See the little children
See how they're playing so happy
In the playround in my mind.

Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba
La la la la la la la.

it still gives me chills.
