Not a Summer Song

My friend Altadena Hiker has a whole summer vibe going with shots of summer flowers and links to Brazilian singers, which made me think of my favorite Brazilian singer, Luciana Souza, who has a great song about spring called "The Waters of March." Listen to it here. It's a great reminder that while the waters of March may be as cold and violent as a shot in the dark, they're also the promise of new life. Birth hurts, and each of us is reborn everyday. So there you go.

It's not just birth that hurts, apparently the birth certificate hurts too. Or at least if you're a "birther". Apparently they have split over the fake birth certificate so there are now to "birther" factions!

Hey, this sounds like you. (Lyric-wise of course. I've never actually heard you sing.)

Souza is so lovely, and her version of waters of March is so quiet, beautiful :)

That was a beautiful surprise, Margaret! Thank you - and thanks, altadenahiker too!

Lynne: Who can keep track, huh?

PA: Arab electronica? Tell me more.

AH: The truth is, I can really belt it out, or I could, back in the day.

Italo: I like it too.

Shell: You are welcome.

You've got me smiling. Very lovely.

The rhythm of the song bubbles and burbles along sounding very much like your river looks.

That was beautiful! Loved the music and the words. Glad I stopped by.

Wow Margaret, I'm impressed but not surprised. I know what we'll be asking you to do next time we meet.

A brief but wonderful thought.

Today's post on Watermarks is quite appropriate. Look at it if you can.
