Oh dear, weeping here at Dido. We did a production in college a few years ago and Dido was played by a lovely girl with a stunning voice, and every night I heard her singing this, I had tears in my eyes because she was so young and lovely and about to die. Which was very silly because she wasn't really. Then I heard it the other day on the radio and what with remembering this girl and thinking of my poor mum being remembered - in bits again. And now it's happened again! I realised the minute JN started that this is what it was going to be, but couldn't stop listening.
Alison Moyet does a wonderful rendition of this.The sun is peeping through here this morning, BUT I can guarantee that if I get all my gardening tools together......
There is a plus point to all this , though . The odd fleeting spell of sunshine is now a fabulous surprise .
Such beautiful images from somewhat disastrous weather. I do hope that the flooding stops.
Mood-boosting supplements? That would be gin?
I just posted Billie Holiday singing 'Stormy Weather' on FB, and suggested maybe THAT'S why the weather is so gloomy. Just sayin'.
Your photos are superb - a silver lining? My hometown had flash flooding downtown yesterday afternoon. The photos were all over Facebook. A friend's friend was killed in a mudslide last weekend. It has all been like some altered universe. We are having the loveliest of July's after the rainiest of Junes and the threat of flooding. I hope it gets better soon, Lucille!!
