Let’s Take A Moment Day 50

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?

Peanuts music

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.

Bette Midler is so accomplished she is capable of singing anything.  But when she performs a ballad, she is glorious.  Along with cleaning up parts of NYC with her New York Restoration Project and sending Johnny Carson’s show off into that good night, I think this is one of The Divine Miss M’s best moments.

When the night has been too lonely and the road has been too long
And you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong
Just remember in the winter, far beneath the bitter snows
Lies the seed, that with the sun’s love in the spring becomes the rose.”

Bette Midler:  “The Rose” (1979, written by Amanda McBroom).

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

Stay well.

  1. I love this song. A flautist & pianist played a duet of it at my first wedding. The memory of that performance has lasted far longer than the marriage.
