I'm sitting here on the back deck of Mockingbird Cottage. The breeze is rustling the trees in the woods. The birds are singing. The grass is cut, day lilies and gladiolas are blooming. And, someone forgot to invite the humidity to the party, which is the best thing of all--and pretty rare in TN. At times like this, my mind turns to--showtunes. Of course. Is there anyone among us who doesn't have that reaction?
At any rate, it's a sublimely, almost achingly, beautiful morning. I'd like to thank Messrs. Rodgers and Hammerstein for writing the great anthem of lovely summer mornings!
I hope your mornings are beautiful and peaceful. Here is Hugh Jacksman (yes, THAT Hugh Jackman) with the quintessential song for summer mornings.
