Over the rainbow / It's a wonderful world

I've had a challenging time with my computer over the past couple of weeks.  So challenging that I don't even want to talk about it!  Suffice to say that I have lost all my photographs from 2009 and 2010.

However things are coming together again and I can still take new photos so all is not lost.

Today I am sharing a you tube video of the amazing Hawaiian singer Israel Kamakawakiwo'le singing two simple and beautiful songs that bring peace and joy.  I had heard this on the radio a few years ago but didn't know anything about the singer.  He sang with a Hawaiian traditional group but it was this song that catapulted him to fame.  The song was released as a single in 2006.  

May it bring you delight today.


  1. Absolutely not fair.. since The photos you share are always amazing I'm sure the rest of them were fantastic too.. the rock formations in the last post are so inviting I wish I could go exploring there.. reminds me of a piece of coastline nearby called Duck Pond Road.. Take care

  2. This is hands-down my favorite version! I first heard it a few years ago, too. He had an amazing voice and style.
    So sorry about your photos. That's a real shame.

  3. I am indeed delighted !

    Sorry to hear about the computer problems.
    When my computer died, the screen actually turned red ....
    I thought I lost everything. Thank goodness Japanese Son found most of my files but we lost all the photos too, How weird is that ?

    Good to hear/see ? a post from you....

    cheers, parsnip

  4. Thanks for your consoling comments about the loss of my photos.
