My life closed twice
Before its close
It yet remains to see
If Immortality unveil
A Third Event to me.

So huge –– so hopeless to conceive
As thes wich twice befell.
Parting is all we know of Heaven
And all we need of Hell.

~ Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)


I’ll Be Seeing You

I'll be seeing you,
In all the old familiar places,
That this heart of mine embraces,
All day through.

In that small cafe,
The park across the way,
The children's carousel,
The chestnut trees the wishing well.

I'll be seeing you in every golden summer's day 
In everything that's light and gay,
I'll always think of you that way,

I'll find you in the morning sun,
And when the night is new,
I'll be looking at the moon,
I'll be seeing you.

  1. I've always loved Durante. Not the greatest voice, but always a "character".

    1. Well, that just it, of course, Beanie. I've always loved Jimmy Durante. We all did.

      He wasn't a great singer –– not really "singer" at all as a matter of fact –– but he had an irrepressible personality and and immense amount of "heart" and good will that proved infectious to many. It made him not only well loved, but UNFORGETTABLE to at least two generations.

      He was that rarity of rarities –– an indivdual who truly was UNIQUE.

      By the way, I feel similarly about Ethel Merman.

  2. The ol' Schnozzola... What a character. Nice Sunday morning music.
