Some Songs I Love

All of them have those delicious, aching chords and chord changes that make me feel all woozy and glittery inside, and they all have sweetly sad, wistful lyrics. What could be better?

Long, Long Time - Linda Ronstadt (Silk Purse, 1970)
Les Fleurs - Minnie Riperton (Come To My Garden, 1970)
Have You Never Been Mellow - Olivia Newton John (Have You Never Been Mellow, 1975)
If You Could Read My Mind - Gordon Lightfoot (Sit Down Young Stranger, 1970)
Morning Has Broken - Cat Stevens (Teaser and the Firecat, 1971)
Summer Breeze - Seals and Crofts (Summer Breeze, 1972)

Happiness Is a String of Pompoms!

I bought some of these pompoms for someone very special who was turning four. I am not four, but I got pretty jealous and had to get some for myself.

I love the colors so much!

Here's what they would look like to a spider.

And here's what they look like from the other side, through the glass.

Whether you're four or not four, if you want some for yourself, you can get them here.

Elephants Breaking My Heart

I saw this documentary (The Urban Elephant) for the first time many years ago, and have watched it many times since. Shirley. Solomon. Jenny. So sad and so sweet. If you haven't seen this, please watch it. You will not be the same.
