Here's what happened. Today had some rough moments in it. A few moments ago, I was working on the computer with my blog Playlist playing, and I heard a song that was not on my Playlist...coming from the computer. I checked, and the song should have been Boy on a Dolphin, sung by Julie London. Instead it was Besame Mucho, also sung by Julie London (I've loved Julie London all my life and have all her music but I had no idea that she'd recorded this song).
By now you're wondering what the hey I'm talking about.
Often when I'm going through rough moments, odd things happen. The odd thing here is that Besame Mucho was a song that my mother hummed while doing the washing-up. I was just a little child, but for some reason it's ingrained in my memory. It still has the power to move me to tears.
