My mom passed away one month ago today, and it just felt right to put together a short playlist of significant songs.
The Rose by Bette Midler:
This is the first song that I ever remember listening to you with you…and we both really loved it.
Bright Eyes by Art Garfunkel
The lyrics are very apt at the moment. And you introduced me to Watership Down, along with so many other books. Thanks for that, mom!
The Soft Goodbye by Celtic Women
Because this list would be very incomplete without a nod to your Irish heritage, and I know you enjoyed this album from Celtic Women the most.
Spirit of the Great Heart by Johnny Clegg
For so many reasons…the dogs, the memories of trips to the bush, the fact that you were a huge fan of Johnny Clegg. This video even has a lilac breasted roller! (And a chameleon.)
