The most beautiful song I have ever heard.

It's been a backslide weekend.  I'm still sober... so it wasn't that kind of backslide. It was my health. I am having serious problems urinating again, and I woke up this morning with a rash that's oozing blood and pus over my entire chest.

The weird thing is I am not depressed. Here's the reason.

I couldn't sleep the other night, and had the radio on. And heard the most beautiful song I have heard in a very long time, if ever. A rendition of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" by Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwoʻole. I defy anyone who hears this beautiful rendition, not to feel happy, to feel hope, albeit sadness for such a talented singer who left this world too early.

It got me through this weekend, and I don't feel so sad and alone now. I hope it does that with anyone reading this post.



Bless you IZ, where ever you are.

Love Briother Izzy! I hope you feel better this week and that you can get help for the bladder.

Love and hugs as ever.

Oh yes, Bruddah Iz makes me smile inside and out. Lots of his music on you tube.

All the very best to you Susan. Hang in there.

I first heard this song many years ago when I was still a teenager and it has literally travelled the world with me. IZ was so talented apparently he just started sing his own rendition of this song without ever having sung it before!

I hope your health gets better, sending lots of hugs your way! :)

I agree! This is the song my wife puts on when I used to have panic attacks, and it always helped calm me.

I think this song was on the TV show ER once...

The song that has lately gotten me through some bad times is "Prince of Darkness" by the Indigo Girls.

Tailwags to you,
