This song from Toy Story 2 always pulls at my heart strings…. the story of a loved toy doll whose owner grows older and loses interest in her but then one day the owner finds the toy and hugs it once again. The love, the nostalgia, and the beautiful story of loyalty just gives me all the feels.
Merry Christmas everyone!
My gift to each of you is my most requested Christmas song. One year I didn’t program this on my annual Christmas concert and there was a bit of an uproar. Now I make sure to end each concert with O Holy Night.
May this holiday bring you peace, happiness, and health.
All my love to you!
Tuneful Tuesday Week 74: The Man That Got Away
There’s been a lot of hype about the new movie “The Star Is Born” but I’m still in love with the Judy Garland version that this powerful torch song came from.
Today is my birthday…. it also happens to be All Souls’ Day. My mom really wanted me to be born on Halloween, but I held out until All Souls’ Day: a day of remembrance when the souls of our departed loved ones are said to walk upon this earth. Maybe that’s why I’ve always been such an old soul. 😉
I’ve always had such a strong connection to this Strauss piece because every time I hear or sing it, I think “IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!!!” so I thought it would be fitting to share a recording of it this year as an early “Tuneful Tuesday.”
Happy All Souls’ Day and Happy Birthday To Me!
“Place on the table the fragrant mignonettes, bring here the last red asters, and let us speak again of love, as long ago in May. Give me the hand that I may secretly clasp it, and if it is observed by others, I will not mind; Give me one of your sweet glances, as long ago in May. Today each grave is flowering and fragrant, once a year is All Souls’ Day, come to my heart that I again may have you, as long ago in May.”
Fitness Friday Week 42: Guided Savasana Meditation
I’m still dreaming of teaching yoga on the beautiful Mendocino Headlands. Enjoy this guided Savasana with the sound of waves lapping on the shore and birds chirping in the skies.
