Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
I think we could all use a little magic in our lives right about now.....
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ul041CSNJto - This Magic Moment - The Drifters, 1960
|"This Magic Moment" is a song composed by lyricist
Pomus and pianist
Mort Shuman. It is one of their best-known songs.
It was recorded first by
Ben E. King and
and made No. 16 on the
Billboard Hot 100 during 1960. The version by
Jay and the Americans in 1969 went to No. 6, earning
gold record status. The song is used in
David M. Evans' film
The Sandlot and was also featured in David Chase's television
The Sopranos in the episode "Soprano
Home Movies". The session musicians Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller
hired to play on this record include Phil Bodner on sax, Ernie Hayes on
piano, Bucky Pizzarelli and George Barnes on guitar, George Duvivier on
bass, and Shep Sheppard on drums.

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 01/25/15:
means active waiting and enduring. It means staying with something and
doing all that we can—working, hoping, and exercising faith; bearing
hardship with fortitude, even when the desires of our hearts are
delayed. Patience is not simply enduring; it is enduring well!”
-Dieter F. Uchtdorf
(b. 06 Nov 1940)
