Rainbows, Tears, and Israel Kamakawiwo'ole
Israel Kamakawiwo'ole rendition of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" has a special meaning for me because I first heard it on my way home from Europe (I dream I thought would never come true). Right now, I'm struggling with another desire. Cried of lot of tears. Found myself broken on more than one occasion. And at the moment, that dream seems as likely as my seeing Europe did a few years ago. Not that likely. But despite what the naysayers told me, I did see Europe...and, maybe, just maybe, with a little patience other things can happen, too. "Oh, Somewhere over the rainbow way up high. And the dream that you dare to, why, oh why can't I?"
