You know, my experience with many of you is that you are MULTI-DIMENSIONAL men, very complex....who have a lustier side but also a very sensitive, caring, inspirational side.

BALANCE is the key to MENTAL HEALTH and PHYSICAL WELL-BEING. Life, after all, is not ALL about DEATH....LIFE consists of LIFE, too !!!

One of my GREAT PASSIONS is MUSIC...classical symphonies, classical piano (which I have studied and performed), the opera and musical "BROADWAY" works.

To this end, I am creating "ArrowMan's MUSICAL CORNER"..... and my first
link is to a stirring song for all .... regarding the dawn of a better day..."for LOOK, a NEW DAY has BEGUN ! "

From the Broadway musical "CATS"..... Barbara Streisand sings "MEMORIES" (as no one else ever has and EVER can), which I dedicate to a most special person who has forever changed my life for the better:

"CHARIOTS of FIRE"

My third selection is from that stunning movie...."CHARIOTS of FIRE"... the Theme Song by that most enlighted composer, VANGELIS.

"Don't ever give UP, NEVER !!" is what this work speaks to me !

I agree. That special person is Arrow of course, maybe you played dead with her tune in the background?

"I'll Be Seeing YOU" sung by Rosemary Clooney

"I'LL BE SEEING YOU"
sung best by the unforgettable Rosemary Clooney.
It was written during World War Two, for the many whose lovers went off to the war, many never to return again.

We need to be mindful of this side of war as well, which has no glory in it,
but only tragedy and loss. :sm (41): :sm (41):

I am including several versions, the first sung by Rosemary Clooney with the romantic yet sad verses showing .. then the next sung by the artist herself during a filmed live performance.

Nearly every vocal artist of high standing has performed this work, and it is taught to nearly every professional vocal student, though few can perform it as movingly as Rosemary Clooney does here.



"
I'll be seeing you in every lovely summer's day
in everything that's light and gay, I'll ALWAYS think of you that way
I'll find you in the morning sun
And when the night is new
I'll be looking at the moon
But I'll be seeing you."
