CLIMB EVERY MOUNTAIN 😉
Enjoying a Barbra Streisand concert on cable, delightful voice and musical interpretation. She sang a song from the “Sound Of Music”, beautifully, magnificent. But I have a problem with a part of the lyrics of this song.
I will tell you first a little bit of my musical experience so you know why I dare to criticize (in a constructive way, of course) the lyrics of this song.
I happen to be a musician. I play the guitar and sing very well, actually. I sang professionally in my youth to pay for my medical career. I studied music, singing lessons and musical composicion: music and lyrics, in Bellas Artes in Mexico City. So I think I have a very good idea of what I am talking about, but I am always open for a healthy debate and to change my mind if somebody is willing to explain to me why I am wrong in my assertion about this song:
“Climb Every Mountain” — Written by Rodgers And Hammerstein.
This show tune was written for the 1959 musical “The Sound of Music” and sung by the Mother Abbess.
The problem I have with, is highlighted and I will tell you why below the lyrics:
Climb every mountain
Ford every stream
Follow every rainbow
‘Till you find your dream
It should say “reach” your dream, not find your dream. You already need to have found your dream, this is “know” your dream, then climb every mountain, until you reach it. And I don’t see any problem with the rhyme. Changing the word find to reach would not affect the tune nor the octaves, but it would make a lot more sense, and it would have more psychological and inspirational impact, in my opinion.

MASSAGE RELAXATION SPA DAY
Dads don’t need much. Just a little gift to know that their work is appreciated. BUT if you really wanted to, he probably wouldn’t mind if you took the time to look around to get him something more suitable to his likings:
- Is he a geeky dad?
- Is he the executive type?
- Does he love sports, and what kind?
- Is he metro-sexual and super-neat?
- Does he like traveling?
- Does he like music, plays a certain musical instrument?
- Maybe your dad is the scientific one?
ALL IN ONE CHARGING STATION
Think of all the things Dad did for you: Life lessons, guidance, and unconditional love. Maybe your dad would love an expensive drone that will show up all the other dads at the park. Or a super-slick TV that doesn’t look like all the others.
A great idea would be to give him a gift card for him to spend in a relaxing environment like a spa, so he can get a massage with herbs and lotions, facial masks, a haircut, sauna, and then go with him and the whole family to a fancy restaurant for dinner.
Send your dad to the country or place he has always dreamed of visiting and he has never been able to go for one reason or another. You can find out when he has time off and which are his plans. I assure you, he will be very happy.
REVOLIGHTS FOR HIS BICYCLE
For Coco to win an Oscar is beyond real. It represents the wonderful culture of Mexico and it is supposed to be a love letter to Mexico, celebrating the country of Mexico that is creative, and fun, and exciting, and full of culture, color, love and courage.
One day I hope, we will all live in peace in this beautiful house we call Mother Earth.
I give profuse thanks to Pink for making this remarkable, splendid, magnificent, powerful song that puzzled me for its honesty and strength in its words.
I can´t stop playing it I just love it so much. The first time I heard it, the lyrics made my heart, my spirit, my mind and my soul vibrate, it simply made me feel alive, strong and say: I am a winner!
But the fight is never over, the good fight, the fight for living, for loving, for conquering that freedom and respect that gives us dignity to us all.
Daily Prompt: Trill
King of the Hill, a very popular show who has inspired many to enjoy the “Trill City” concept. Shirts, mugs, videos and countless of entry blogs have been made and created, not only in the US, but also in Australia and England.
Reblogged and reposted innumerably, “King of the Trill” was clearly Trill City’s most popular design. The phrase had already been coined by Bun B. He even used it as a mixtape title. Despite the similar sound to Mike Judge’s “King of the Hill”, the connection between the two had never been made popular or even apparent until we put it on the internet.
The portrait of Hank Trill is a great combination. It brings together the cartoon series known for characterizing our state so accurately, with another Texas legacy, “Trill”. The fusion of these two concepts not only makes sense, it is an obvious advancement for fans of rap, animation, humor, and Texas pride. Although clever, it is perhaps lucky that Trill City came up with it first. And while biters should never be condoned, it was inevitable that it would be copied. King of the Trill
