A good man is hard to find

.






















František Skála, more here

Hello,

Though we may sometimes, somehow "lose ourselves"
the song we carry within sings on, through us. Is
heard by others--who often help return us to ourselves.
Just listen.

I love the use of cardboard in the video.

... and this audio, a gift, a small pot of gold for me--

Flannery O'Connor reading her short story "A Good Man Is Hard to Find" at Vanderbilt University, 1959.

I hope you are all well, enjoying, discovering, creating, loving, dancing, indulging, finding wonder and awe, good wine (of whatever sort), etc...

Peace to all who enter here, and Blessings. Thank you all ...

hello to you! Like lynne, I love her voice too. And your voice through your words, that 'the song we carry within sings on', even if we lose our voices for a while.
I am listening, though I haven't lost my voice, just been busy and being quiet again.
The link is wonderful. Love Skála's 'fools boat."
And I hope you are dancing as well, full of wonder and delight and I know, always discovering.
