a personal note

someone very close to me has just begun a new romance. i learned this delightful news on the phone today. also today, i thought about mama cass singing "dream a little dream," and how hearing her sing it for the first time was very significant for me. i wanted so much to be the voice singing that song, to be the person playing that piano. it is simple, sweet, and terribly lovely.

so my friend is happy and i thought of this song. here's mama cass singing it on the smothers brothers show. a little hokey, a little silly--kind of like being in love, no?
