A New Season

Neighbor boy Kenny Estes looks to make starter on the Warriors Football Team this year. YEAH!
GO ESTES #37!!!

Of course, I have become a fan of Susan Boyle.
Her dream is my dream:

I dreamed a dream from Les Miserables

I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When hope was high
And life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I dreamed that God would be forgiving.

Then I was young and unafraid
And dreams were made and used
And wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung
No wine untasted.

But the tigers come at night
With their voices soft as thunder
As they tear your hope apart
As they turn your dream to shame.

And still
I dream he'll come to me
That we will live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms
We cannot weather...

I had a dream my life would be
So different form this hell I'm living
so different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed
The dream I dreamed.

Did you see and hear her sing? It was a triumph!

OTOH- LesMiz is not my fave musical. It was a great book though. I read it in French class in French.

My fave musicals are sometimes sad- like South Pacific and West Side Story... but the music transcends all.

I saw her on channel 2 news just a while ago and felt I had to listen to her again. Absolutely gorgeous voice! I hope she fulfills her dream of becoming a star.
