heart of gold

i want to live,
i want to give!

such simple words—



i love this rendition of neil young's "heart of gold." i hope you will too. usually for songs that are so classic, i can't bear remakes—but i make an exception for jane weaver here. the song is heavy with sadness and resignation, edged with hope. it is haunting. perhaps especially in the wake of tsunamis and earthquakes, frightening manmade clouds hanging over japan and soon the rest of the world.

but it is a pretty song, just the same.
what do you think?

  1. Hi Annie! So glad you want to join the Book Club Bloggers! The Linky for the reviews for "Girl, Interrupted" will go up March 25th, and then we're reading "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius" for April. Can't wait to have you along!

    Also, I love some of the art you've put up on here, especially the photos by plathy and the "book surgeon"!
