Sometimes You Just Need a Good Spiritual

Lately I’ve been avoiding the news. I check the headlines to see if the world maybe ended during the night. I scan my social media feeds for articles about puppies and kittens, and the occasional fuzzy calf. I’m not sure why this morning seemed even bleaker than usual. It’s actually a beautiful sunny day at the moment – perfect fall crispness. I got TWO morning cuddles with BC. All the cats behaved at breakfast.

I think it must have been my Twitter feed(Click at your own risk.) You know what they say about curiosity. It didn’t kill any cats this time (thank goodness) but it did make me sigh a very very deep sigh. But from the depths of my memory came floating up the words “O Mary Don’t You Weep“. I thought – yes! I could really use The Boss singing encouragement right now. Did a little search and found his version of this wonderful spiritual. I may need to work my way through every recorded version of it before I dare glance at social media again today. *smile*

Click the link (BC’s pic) for a lift, and cuddle a cat if you have one. Or a dog – that’s good too.

    Excellent post! I may have to listen to this video for the rest of the day! (You are the second person in the past few days to mention music–singing or listening–as a mood renewer.)

    You can learn a lot from “old timers” – William Congreve (1670-1729): “Music hath charms to soothe the savage breast. To soften rocks, or bend the knotted oak.” And I listened to several more videos after I played THAT one 5 times. *grin* Glad you enjoyed it.
