My Traveling Shoes

Done found myself a new pair of travelin' shoes to wear on this leg of my journey. Handmade to fit and suit me just right, supportin' and comfortin' me each step of the way.They are wild and colorful as I chose them to be, they suit my personality.
I've traveled so many miles in shoes that someone else bought for me, plain, poorly fitted, worn, second hand, hand me downs. Ohh, they hurt my feet and took me places that I didn't need to go, places that I didn't want to go. For many years I put them on. I was told it was my duty, but my heart was heavy and my cares so many.

I own these shoes. They are mine.

Enjoying Ella Fitzgerald


Happy New Year! I've been very busy at work. We are ordering lots of beautiful, interesting new books at our library. So, while I am busy guttering, receiving them on the computer, adding title page labels, barcodes and stamps...I often listen to Pandora Radio. Yesterday they played a song I've never heard by Ella Fitzgerald called, "Stairway to the Stars." Whoah! Knocked my socks off. I can imagine someone at her time saying, "Jeepers, that song just sends me" or something like that! I played it for my husband when I got home and I couldn't help but dance around the room. I got an mp3 version of it for my player but couldn't find a video of her singing it. I found one of her singing Blue Moon which is nice, but I definitely prefer Stairway to the Stars. I'm not sure how to put a video on here. I'm afraid I haven't figured it out.Check it out on this video bar to the right of this post. Enjoy. Peace, Jeanne
