The other day...
I had the fun of singing an impromptu version of my favorite: The Christmas song by Nat King Cole in @artemisnorth's Creatives Coffee show. I absolutely love that song, and had all intentions of recording it today for a more polished version.
But my heart is a little bit low today. And the words of this song, which happens to be my second favorite Christmas song, seemed appropriate for my mood. Written by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blaine (and first made famous by Judy Garland), this song just seems to evoke a few melancholy moments where you think you'd rather be crying rather than singing.
And then, after you remember you have "faithful friends who are dear and gather near", you get to "hang a shining star upon the highest bow." Something about that line... the brightest light, high enough for everyone to see. Mmmm.
I hope you get to celebrate Christmas with every person you hold dear, whether near or far.
