You just can't get rid of that eternal hope for a rainbow. Lovely to hear that song again!

Selma...I was so moved by the song when I saw it sung on Elvis Costello's new TV program. I had to share it. :)

In May of 1972 my cousins (3) all of us 17 were all killed in seperate accidents. Kris got me through that next 6 months , I remember laying on my bed playing his record (yes I did say record) over and over and releasing all my emotions.
I saw that special this weekend and it brought joy, memories and pain all at the same time.

Mavis...I can't imagine how painful that was. Music has a magical healing power doesn't it? Sometimes it feels like it touches the chord inside us that connects to God.
I bet Kristoferson would be very moved if you were to share your story with him....about how much his music helped you in 1972 and how it felt to see him again on Costello's TV show.
