No more blues

Wanting to practise this song, I went to look for others who'd sung it. And what do you know? My favorite singer of all times, Carmen McRae, did her very own version! Love it. And the lyrics.. well, they speak for themselves ;)

No more blues
I'm going back home
No, no more blues
I promise no more to roam
Home is where the heart is
The funny part is, my heart's been
Right here all alone
No more tears, and no more sighs
No, no more fears-
I'll say no more goodbye
If travel beckons me, I swear I'm gonna refuse
I'm gonna settle down, and there'll be no more blues
Everyday while I am far away
My thoughts turn homeward, forever homeward
I've traveled round the world in search of happiness
But all the happiness I've found
Is in my hometown
No more blues
I'm going back home
No, no more blues
I'm through with all my wandering now
I'll settle down and never roam
And find a man and build a home
When we settle down, there'll be no more blues
Nothing but happiness
When we settle down, there'll be no more blues

Smash fear, learn anything

Today I cheat; I'm posting the same TED clip here as on NotJustAnIdea. The reason is that I'm truely inspired. What helps us to do want we want to do, is to ask ourselves: "What's the worst that could happen?". Fear is your friend, just remember that.

Cinque terra, so beautiful!

Funny sign in Parma... thinking of creating a series. This one goes well with the 'Unnecessary noise prohibited' sign in New York.

View from the hotelroom... Great location looking out on the Sidel factory and right above the Sound cafe. Thanks for the didgeridoo, guys!

"My name is Harvey Milk and I'm here to recruit you". That's how gay rights activist Milk opened his speeches to the masses that gathered time and again to protest against discrimination of gays. Finally, I have seen this highly appraised film and I fully understand why Sean Penn received an Oscar for his part. It's a beautiful portrait of a brave man.
