songs to remember.

When I was 11, I fell in love with a movie.  Mostly it was the score, but the sweet adventure story stole my heart.  The movie was High Road to China, and for years my parents were terrified because I so adamantly insisted I would one day fly WWI biplanes.

John Barry was the composer, and a few years later he wrote what I think is one of the most beautiful scores of all time, Out of Africa.  I have many John Barry scores on my playlist now.   It has always been music to simply...listen to.

  3. Once I had a farm in Africa...an unforgettable film with unforgettable music. I had a pang of sadness when I heard of John Barry's death today.

  4. So have you ever flown in a bi-plane? I was lucky enough to get a ride in one of the Red Baron (pizza) planes. They have quite a fleet of them and make them available to charity events. You should look into it. Flying in an open cockpit is both thrilling and terrifying!
