Nothing like a bit of music to beat the blues. When I finally was able to contact my sister, who spent two nights this week in a flood evacuation centre, she told me they sang "You are my sunshine, my only sunshine" to keep their spirits up.
Hopefully today they can sing the old Johnny Nash classic "I can see clearly now the rain has gone". I cranked up the Hothouse Flowers version over breakfast and felt a whole lot better.
"I can see clearly now the rain has gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It's gonna be a bright, bright
from "I can see clearly now" Johnny Nash 1972
