Editor's comments: A beautiful song about waking up to the realization that nothing in life is perfect, and that the pursuit of perfection is exhausting, endless and unobtainable. It's a commentary on finding the beauty and joy in what we may already have to feel whole.
There's no fortune at the end of the road that has no end.
There's no returning to the spoils
Once you've spoiled the thought of them.
There's no falling back asleep
Once you've wakened from the dream
Now I'm rested and I'm ready,
I'm rested and I'm ready to begin.
by Jack Haley and Estelle Loring | Performed by Blossom Dearie
Editor’s Comment: The news seems no longer the news, it’s seems more like mud-slinging. I’m weary of it. So when this old song came up on my ITunes, I played it over five times.
Editor’s Comment: This song is among the latest mix given to me by my daughter, Caitlin. We enjoy together music with meaning and while this one is not a favorite musical arrangement, the lyrics are powerful. Hope you enjoy.
