In the shadows of tall buildings....

Because Joan Osborne is a goddess and can do no wrong I wanted to share her cover of Jump LIttle Children's "Cathedrals" from 1999 (reviewed here in an earlier post of mine from 27 Jan '08 entitled "In the Cathedrals of New York and Rome..." http://lifeinlaland.blogspot.com/2008/01/in-cathedrals-of-new-york-and-rome.html). This is from her latest release "Little Wild One". I look forward to picking it up and will review it at a later date....though what I've heard of it so far I love already. I first heard her do this song at a show here in Los Angeles that my dear friend Jodi, Abby and I went to two years ago. Joan was amazing and this song brought tears to my eyes...I found out this weekend that I wasn't the only one so moved by her performance. Yeah - she's a goddess of massive proportions and clearly I'm not the only one who feels this way. Nice not to feel so alone sometimes when amidst the shadows of tall buildings.

Thanks for tuning in...Until next time....CHEERS!!

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright....

I'm finding it hard to write these days but I felt it was time to at least say something. Though I'm not sure something is better than nothing I wanted to let you all know I haven't dumped this blog all together - I've just been uninspired since my best friend kitty passed away in July. I'm still deeply saddened by his loss and have been left somewhat speechless as it were. I thought perhaps that if I start to write something the words would flow so this is all stream of consciousness writing and really has no point.

Today's title is from Dar Williams' new CD called Promised Land, she's an old neighbour of mine, a very sweet person who has done well for herself and she's certainly not lacking in talent. She's more than alright, that's for sure. I hope you check her out. http://folkmusic.about.com/od/darwilliams/a/DarWilliamsQA.htm

Anyway....life has moved forward - the summer is at an end. I celebrated my birthday in The Sequoias last weekend and wanted to share some pictures from the trip.

Thanks for tuning in...until next time (and there will be one)...CHEERS!!!
