Second week in a row that I’m on time! What a small miracle that is!
This week, I’d like to share a very popular Italian song with ya’ll – I believe it’s been translated into several languages, including English. Thankfully, this video that I found has both the Italian lyrics and the English translation!
This song, without fail, reminds me of my grandfather. I have a very distinct memory of asking him to teach me with words and sing it with me, and I think of that every time I hear it now. There are a few slight variations on the lyrics in this song, and it’s been sung by many, many musicians, but they mostly all say the same thing – how wonderful it is to fly, and yet…how wonderful it is to be here on Earth with you instead.
A sweet sentiment for you all on this Sunday after Valentine’s Day! I hope yours was a good one, and that the week ahead is just as nice!
