Let’s Take A Moment Day 26

Hi everyone.  Hope you are all well and continue to stay that way during this global health crisis we are facing.  But in addition to protecting your physical wellness, what are you doing to stay mentally healthy today?

I know we are in a serious situation, but I need a break from the gloom, doom and bullying by way of hoarding. Music has always been my refuge and watching those beautiful Italians singing to each other from their balconies reaffirmed my belief that music is the answer. So until the old normal returns, I am going to share a song I listen to that helps me escape the current state of things, if only for a few minutes each day. And if this helps anyone else, even better.

Fifty years ago-April 11, 1970-today’s song hit #1 for the first of two consecutive weeks.  The day before, Paul McCartney announced he had left The Beatles, signifying the end of the greatest band the world has ever seen.  In the six years between when they landed in America until they broke up, they took us from “She Loves You” to “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”, from “Can’t Buy Me Love” to “Come Together” from “All My Loving” to “Across The Universe”.  They changed the sound of music, the face of music and the feel of it as well.  Thank you John, Paul, George & Ringo for the phenomenal ride.

And when the night is cloudy,
There is still a light that shines on me,
Shine until tomorrow, let it be.”

I do not own the rights to anything.  I am just sharing what I love and how I am coping with you.

Stay well.
