Does Your House Have Lions?

"One day in the late sixties, I was on the phone with Rahsaan and mentioned to him that just that day I bought a house.
He responded by asking, "Does your house have lions?"
I said, "What?"
He said, "Lions, you know like in front of a museum or the post office. You know, concrete lions. My house has lions. Get a house with lions."

Rahsaan quote about blindness

"I'm a man, first.  So-called blindness is secondary.  I don't believe that when I pick up an instrument, I'm blind to anyone."
