What I Am Listening To...

Music is my balm. Regretfully, I have absolutely no musical talent myself. You will never see me trying out for American Idol - ever. Yet music is what lifts me and crashes me and carries me to the next current.

Almost in Your Arms- Sam Cooke (I've loved this song since Carey Grant danced Sophia Loren under the stars to this tune in the movie Houseboat. Itunes finally began carrying it this year after like a million people demanded it. Power to the people!)

When we first discovered Game of Thrones we watched the entire season back to back over a period of a week after putting Monkey to bed. The good news is that we LOVED this show and it was fun watching without having to wait for the next installment. Really enjoyed the soundtrack. Beautifully composed. Here is the link:
