music sets the mood...

I have been listening to Ray Charles on You Tube.  It happened quite by accident, clicking on a song that a friend posted on the dreaded FB.  The song was "Cry".  By the time I had listened to it I was feeling quite down, despite the positive message in it.  I tried a few more Ray Charles songs.  No ups there.

Basta! (Enough).

Here is Julie Andrews with a much better option... I listened to this while I looked at some photos of my very own favourite things (OK, my favourite people). Now I feel much, much better.  And to add to it, there is always another song, another version... it's quite sweet, really!

Dear family, I love you all very much.  Your photos are wonderful, and videos... well, what can I say? The most recent video has me in stitches, I think I have probably worn it out.  I was almost in the same room...

Laughter truly is wonderful.

Today I am grateful for private blogs.

PS only turn it up after the initial ad has played! Roughly 8 seconds from memory.

It always comes back to "people" People are the most important things - especially people in your family. Good to know you are smiling:)
