Thanks to everyone who left such wonderful words of encouragement concerning my sinus surgery. It went sooooo well, and I felt your healing hands! Michael, my neighbor-surgeon, had scheduled my case for two hours, but he said that I was so 'gunked up' (my term, not his!) that it took 3 hours! YIKES!!!!! No wonder I sounded so horrible and felt pretty yucky most of the time too! C has been a most indulgent and caring nursemaid, and I know I'm going to owe him big time! Boy I hate being in debt to that guy! LOL Anyway, I was a bit wobbly and not feeling 100% when I first got home, so I opted for bed, but soon was asking for my cell and my laptop. But we have no wifi in the bedroom (my bad!). He also brought me my ipod, so I cranked up Solitaire and some Bob Marley. The first tune that I heard was "Three Little Birds"..........and oh so appropriate:
Rise up this mornin’
Smile with the risin’ sun
Three little birds
Sits by my door step
Singin’ sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true
Sayin’ ‘this is my message to you:
Don’t worry about a thing
Cuz Every little thing’s gonna be alright
About a thing
Cuz every little thing’s
Gonna be alright'
You can hear Bob here and you can see a really funny video here. If you read down further, you will know that the voice belongs to Gilberto Gil, a Brazilian. I highly recommend you listen to the first Youtube first and then go to the second, as it will surely make you laugh....and that is good!
Oh, and one last thing, if you spend any time at all in my studio, you know that I'm very partial to the voices of Bob Marley and Leonard Cohen, the great sermonist Barbara Brown Taylor, and surface designer Jane Dunnewold for her wisdom and design pointers but most of all for the calming nature of her voice!
so, Every Little Thing's Gonna Be Alright!
