Sometimes we go through life alone. We have those moments whereby we reflect alone. Sometimes we need someone to carry us and comfort us, even if there is no one.
This song means a lot to me because it carried me through my childhood through today. It is the kind of song that resides deep inside for some reason, and emerges sometimes when I least expect but usually for a reason to comfort.
The spirit of it never ends.
This solo rendition by Mr. Grant Perez truly captures what resonates inside me to this day. It is incredibly timeless and I would imagine it is as well for all of us who crossed that river as we reflected on the current of life, or are crossing it today.

“Moon river, wider than a mile I’m crossing you in style some day Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker Wherever you’re goin’, I’m goin’ your way
Two drifters, off to see the world There’s such a lot of world to see We’re after the same rainbow’s end, waitin’ ’round the bend My huckleberry friend, moon river, and me.”
I’ve been a fan of Jose Feliciano and so, here he is through the ages:
Feliciano was born in 1945 in Lares, Puerto Rico and has been blind since birth. He was five when he and his family migrated to Spanish Harlem and it was in New York City where he developed his love for music and crafted his skills on the guitar.Feb 12, 2020
Greetings, it’s 7:11 am HST, Saturday, November 07, 2020. May I thank you ALL for your loyal and dedicated energies in visiting my blogsite and for your so very kind support and remarks!
Your kind spirited comments are what I always wanted from an audience of readers of like-minds, and that is to support a global community of down-to-earth human beings so willing to share, learn, explore and grow in the direction they desire! Ultimately, your growth will emerge in a conscious desire to inspire yourself and many others as you forge ahead.
Can you imagine a global world of like minded people inspiring humanity! Yes! You are a part of that!
You have found a place. It does not matter if your space is a micron or a UY SCUTI, the largest known star in the universe, a hypergiant with a radius around 1,700 times larger than the sun.
You exist! And you occupy a place in this world! You belong! And you can do good and inspire others to do the same! We strive in our own way, to encourage life rather than to destroy life.

May I thank you for lifting my heart when it is heavy, to brighten my days when dark clouds loom above, for inspiring me with your comments and support, and providing optimism when the world around us seems as if we don’t recognize it anymore.
I like an innocent heart. I like an innocent soul. The core of innocence no matter who you are, no matter what country you live in, no matter what circumstances face you in adversity. As like-minded people, even if we sit alone, like a candle flickering at night you are beacon of light!
May I thank you. Each of you. I see your light. Thank you!
