Piaf – lost genius

Tell me she was not a genius; the perfect poetry of Michel Emer’s lyrics and the profoundly artistic performance of Edith Piaf just brings tears to my eyes.

This version has English subtitles – the original French words are even more beautiful.


The poetree of the soule

I’ve been off doing poet things. Sorry.

Oh, and I’m getting married on 10th October to Lisa – who is the love of my life, my soulmate, and my best friend in all the world (clichés seem appropriate here mainly because they are entirely true and apt).  I am so happy and feel very lucky to have found her 🙂

Ah yes, and I’m emigrating to the USA at the same time – middle America here I come!
