Land Of Flowers
We all know how much I love Florida. Not the Mickey Mouse Florida. Not the Meth-Guy-Eats-The-Homeless-Guy's-Face Florida. Not the Rick Scott version of Florida which seems to be a haven for the richest and most powerful and a fuck-you to everyone else, Florida. But the Florida of the streams and rivers and lakes and woods and sky and critters and wild beauty and history. I belong to a group on Facebook called Old Florida and today they posted a link to an article about the decline of North Florida's lakes. Lo and behold, they quote Lis Williamson on it and have embedded a song she wrote called Land of Flowers.
If you don't do anything else all day, please go to the article and even if you don't read it- I mean- what do North Florida lakes have to do with your life? probably not much- and scroll down to find the embed of Lis's song. It's a beautiful song, sung by an angel.
The link is here.
That's what I have for you this morning.
