Out of Small and Simple Things...

The world is a harsh place for some of us. Especially the unemployed older woman from a small, nowhere town, who lives with her cat "Pebbles" and admits that she's never been married, or kissed.

But if ever song and situation came together, it is here. "I Dreamed a Dream" from Les Miserables. A song of a girl who's life has not turned out the way she'd hoped. And Susan Boyle singing it makes me want to cry, and stand up and cheer.

It is what I imagine heaven to be; where the love and approval that has been wanting comes with thunderous applause and standing ovation. She hoped to rock an audience, and she is currently rocking the world. You go girl! May your brass ring be grasped and rattled. A privilege to hear and see.

Sorry to make you follow a link - my skills are low this morning. But I'm feeling so much better about my day. :D

Thank you so much for sharing this. It made me day...and that's saying a lot considering I went to the temple this morning!

I love how Simon Cowell puts his head in his hands and sighs like a pre-teen looking at Brad Pitt.
I hope she has a lengthy career ahead of her!

she may not have stolen my voice, but she's totally trying to sport my eyebrows.
