Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Here's a beautiful version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World." I heard it on the radio and couldn't wait to look it up on Youtube. Such a shame that the artist passed away at a rather young age.

I think every so often we need to kick back and listen to a song like this. It's a hopeful little ditty. Now, being of a rather cynical mind, I'm not really sure that I believe a place exists where "dreams really do come true." Still, it's a nice thought. If times are hard right now, they will get better. The future promises hope. And regardless of how good or bad things are right now, we should take the time to be grateful for the things that we do have. We need to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us. What a wonderful world, indeed.

Be thankful. Live fully. Enjoy it.
