A Thought for Today
Get some fun out of life today.
Thank God for music and poetry.
I was sitting
in my car tonight, the rain coming down, and me singing along to the
entire Mary Traver's "Morning Glory" album.
And what a
wonderful concert it was. That's where I first heard "Children One And
All". I really have nothing more to say. Read the lyrics, sing them to the
music in your head.
God bless all the poets,
Thanks for this contribution,
Bob, though I have to admit to having a few tense moments as I tried to
find a copy of Rod's version of the song. I finally tracked it down on the
"Grand Tour" album.
Mary Travers - now there's
a name that evokes some bitter sweet memories for me. Peter, Paul and
Mary's version of the John Denver song "Leavin' On A Jet Plane" was a huge
hit here in South Africa around the time I was doing my military service
in the late sixties. For some reason I always associate this song with
hitch-hiking back to camp on a Sunday afternoon following a weekend pass!
I haven't heard the "Morning
Glory" album but will make a point of doing so now that you've drawn our
attention to it.
As always, the address for
stories about your favorite McKuen song or poem is
firstname.lastname@example.org and I look forward to
hearing from you soon.
