Heart and Soul

Heart is:

  • An American rock band formed in 1970 in Seattle, Washington by Steve Fossen, Roger Fisher, David Belzer, and Jeff Johnson. It evolved from an existing band, White Heart. The vocalists for Heart are sisters Ann Wilson and Nancy Wilson.
  • A muscular organ about the size of a fist, located just behind and slightly left of the breastbone. The heart pumps blood through the network of arteries and veins called the cardiovascular system.

Heart can also be defined by its color, as seen in emojis. Emojis are an electronic form of communication used on mobile and seen on social media.

Soul is the embodiment of what makes “you” who you are. It consists of your mind, character, thoughts, and feelings.

Soul Food originated in the mid-1960s, when "soul" was a common word used to describe African-American culture. At its core, soul food is basic, down-home cooking that's been passed down through many generations, with its roots in the rural South. 

A Southwestern classic (shown below)  is the Soul Food Burrito! Full of yummy/healthy collard greens!

 Some other examples are: Hush puppies, Johnnycakes, and Macaroni Pie!

Soul Music

Soul music is a popular music genre that originated in the African American community throughout the United States in the 1950s and early 1960s. It combines elements of African-American gospel music, rhythm & blues and jazz. Soul music became popular for dancing and listening in the United States, where record labels such as Motown, Atlantic and Stax were influential during the Civil Rights Movement. Soul also became popular around the world, directly influencing rock music and the music of Africa. 
      • Here are some R&B artists that might sound familiar:
        • Debarge - is an American R&B and soul music group and are from Grand Rapids, Michigan.
        • Smokey Robinson - was born February 19, 1940 and is an American R&B soul singer and songwriter.
        • Tony Terry - is an R&B/new jack swing singer from Washington, DC.

    Together, “Heart and Soul” is a powerhouse of human emotions and strength. It is a melding of two parts into one. It embodies the emotions one feels as the sun sets. A sense of self, focus, and strength.

    Passion and Power are the feelings that the our Sorrel and Mero totes from T|W evoke. They are made from vegan leather, are insulated and compartmentalized. Roomy enough to hold your lunch/snack/dinner/breakfast and a nice tall bottle of water (spring, seltzer or carbonated). With some leftover pockets for your keys, cell phone/ batteries and notebooks. 

     Remember to include some sweets for your special someone!
