We are continuing the “Somewhere….” theme this week. We all have heard the song, Somewhere Out There, but I was shocked to realize that we have never seen the animated film. It came out in 1986 and our kids were 11, 9, and 7 so age-appropriate. And we rode our bikes up to the neighborhood video rental place, Video Update in Eden Prairie, every week so I cannot imagine why we did not see it. Or maybe we did and I have forgotten….. Oh, oh! Anyway, SELCO has my order in at Lanesboro library!
Last verse…..Somewhere out there if love can see us through, Then we’ll be together somewhere out there, Out where dreams come true.
This week’s song is dedicated to Diana and Doug, who love the movie Somewhere in Time as much as we do! The 1980 release stars Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour and takes place at the beautiful Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. D and D went on a dream vacation a few years back to the Grand Hotel in early 1900s costumes that Diana sewed! What a memory!!!!
This movie is one of our family’s favorites and the phrase….”Don’t look at the penny!”
We have been watching a lot of Netflix and PBS the last few months, strange activity for summer evenings but this year everything is strange…
We just finished streaming AWAY on Netflix and it is excellent! Clair de Lune (French for “light of the moon”) by Debussy is a poignant recurring musical theme in the show. And we love this piece so here is my abbreviated arrangement of “light of the moon”.
PS. This was one of Rose Bell’s, (beloved LHS English teacher) favorite songs to read by. She requested it when I used to play for worship at St. Patrick’s years ago.
