Monday Music – Carry Me Through by Dave Barnes

I consider this Monday’s Music, Carry Me Through by Dave Barnes, one of my favorite “feel good” songs. 

When I listen to Carry Me Through, any concerns for the day drift away, my feet start moving, and by the time I get to the end of the song, I’m flat out dancing and feeling good.

Celebrate Easter like Florence!

 

If I become senile in my old age and forget how to tie my shoes, I’ll still remember celebrating Easter in Florence, Italy.

It was 1984, and Mom and Dad had brilliantly planned for us to be in Florence on Easter. Naturally we planned to attend the service at the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, otherwise known as The Duomo. 

Can there be any experience like it?

No, there really can’t. I’m not kidding. I’m not exaggerating. There can’t. [Read more…]
