Ah, is that a bit of the breeze I feel? Thank you, Dearest One in the Universe.
For a nonsequitur, dear readers, let's listen to some Ella, as in Miss Ella Fitzgerald, the one who had a voice magnificent and smooth. I had the fortune of seeing her perform towards the end of her career. I was in awe of how a rich, vibrant voice came out of a sweet, little old lady. Listening and watching her made me realize that I wanted to age naturally, and, if at all possible, gracefully.
The first time I heard Ella sing was in Ride 'Em Cowboy, an Abbott and Costello movie. It was her first movie. She was singing my favorite nursery rhyme. I was a pudgy little kid in awe. This morning, while trying not to think about the heat, I came across a clip of Ella in that movie. Watching it felt just as good as that bit of breeze coming through the window. Enjoy.
