Let’s Take A Moment Day 58

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.

Berry Gordy may have started Motown, but William “Smokey” Robinson, Jr. was its heart and soul.  He co-wrote many hits for other artists on the label as well as the ones for his group, The Miracles.  This is my favorite song from them.

Smokey Robinson & The Miracles:  “The Tracks Of My Tears” (1965, written by William “Smokey” Robinson, Jr., Warren Moore and Marvin Tarpin).

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

Stay well.
