I wasn’t tagged or asked, but, um, yeah, Sue Vincent, I’m jumping all over this one! Day 3…. 🙂 (Dear Sue, I have ta do my thing, forgive me for not correctly tagging to Day 2,3, etc…. It’ll be at least a week before I once more get back here -and I’m on a roll – LOL 🙂
Bette Midler’s version is not the first version I ever heard, or learned to love – but yes, I do so love.
Full Disclosure* This is the song I performed for Solo & Ensemble competition in 1986 – my high school choir teacher played guitar for me, cuz I wanted the acoustic background, not the full band/karoake version – and was willing to do A Capella, if need be – the simple message of the song speaks it all, to me mind/heart –
BUT, one overworked, underpaid teacher, signed up to play guitar while I sang – just one more example of how teachers in U.S. have been underpaid for a long time, for the dedication they put into their jobs…
Why is this Music Important to Me?

I just don’t want to do injustice by explaining what ALL, it means to me – I think this is something we all share and, simultaneously, have our own version of The Story, about…:)
And so…here ya go – stay strong, hold out for spring – you walk not alone…
