Cheek to cheek

When I was a student I fell in love with duets between Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong. I listened over and over tapes of their albums in my walkman (yes I’m a dinosaur) on my way to university. The combination of her warm and virtuosic voice, the unique timbre of his voice, the sweetness of his breathe in his trumpet made my days and evenings. It totally cheered and enlightened my days.

This evening I listened to Cheek to cheek, one of my fav duo between those two incredible artists, oh joy!


Heaven, I’m in heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When we’re out together dancing cheek to cheek


Heaven, I’m in heaven
And the cares that hung around me through the week
Seem to vanish like a gambler’s lucky streak
When we’re out together dancing cheek to cheek


Oh I love to climb a mountain
And reach the highest peak
But it doesn’t boot me half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek


Dance with me
I want my arm about you
That charm about you
Will carry me through


This is a series I made with French tulips hubby and kids gave me after my accident last week. Two days ago, I heard that the injury at my head and neck is a whiplash and it might take a long time to heal. Bummer. Nevertheless, I’ve been overwhelmed by support, love and attention the last days; every single message I received gave me wings, hope and made me feel warm inside. THANK YOU to all of you who called me, messaged me, took the time to read my preview post and react in such a positive and caring way. Tonight, my heart is shining. Love wins.


May you all be happy inside,
