Welcome to Friday, March 19, 2021. The shiny sky thingy popped over the horizon at 7:16 AM this morning and will do the setting thing at 7:22 PM. The shining sky master has been drenching us in sunshine since its arrival this AM, but a few high clouds have drifted in like they’re going to put a stop to that. We’ll see. The numbers on the wall claim it’s 37 degrees F but it feels warmer. Maybe it’s the sun effect prompting me to think it’s warmer than truth.
Today’s music is a disco throwback. Released in 1977 by Yvonne Elliman, “If I Can’t Have You” was strong on the charts in the U.S., France, Belgium, Canada, and Australia. I admit, I had to look up the artist’s name. I knew the song thoroughly, but not the artist, which may be an indictment to how the music is often presented without the artist’s name being mentioned. The song was written by Barry Gibbs of Bee Gees fame. If you saw Saturday Night Fever, you heard the song.
Why this song today? Don’t know. It emerged as part of the dreamscape. Maybe I was in some romantic encounter in a dream forgotten except for the feeling and song. It’s stuck in my head, though, and I need to get it out.
Stay positive, test negative, wear a mask, and get the vax. Also, carpe diem, yeah?
