We're just in from After Dinner Whiskey Hour which was quite chilly this evening, Gentle Reader. To wit:
Now 52 degrees ain't exactly cold, but it was enough to send me to the closet for a wool shirt and also made me abandon my usual and customary bare feet for shoes... for the warmth that was in it, yanno? Which got me to thinking... I prolly might want to invest in one of these and fairly soon, too. For winter she's a comin' and we can feel the chill. But we digress... we should be on about the music.
About which, more Joan Osborne:
As I walk this land of broken dreams,It may seem sacrilegious to cover an icon of a Motown song and Jimmy Ruffin fans may or may not agree. Me? I think Ms. Osborne's cover meets and even exceeds the original, in all respects. This, my friends, is soulful indeed.
I have visions of many things.
Love's happiness is just an illusion,
Filled with sadness and confusion.
What becomes of the broken hearted
Who had love that's now departed?
I know I've got to find
Some kind of peace of mind
