Feeling Nostalgic Today

How are all my good friends doing today? I have been catching up on my blogs today and many of you have posted and shared great stories today.

I too have been feeling a bit nostalgic today. Lots of stories and history to reflect, and for some reason, I have been reflecting hard today. Maybe it is the beautiful day I am experiencing, and or the fact that there are a lot of friends and family that I miss dearly, who I knew would have appreciated the beautiful day and cool breezes that are drifting through the house.

I am extremely thankful for all of them and I just wanted to put it "out there" that I am missing all of you. Although your spirits are with me, I just want to laugh and share a story with you one more time.

I thought I would share one of my favorite interpretations of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" by the late and great Israel Kamawiwo. also known as simply, IZ. He had the voice of an Angel and the spirit of a Warrior. I am sure his family is missing him deeply too.

Big ups to my grandparents and my father. I love you.

Saludos to you and yours...

oh wow, this was a wonderful post. I never heard of him but I am sure he is so missed. The spirit remains. Thanks for sharing.

I too thought of my loved ones gone but remembered that their spirits are with me. Take care.

Hi Yoli, It was nice to meet you last night. "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" always makes me a little nostalgic.
