The other night I watched Kennedy Center Honors and they honored such wonderful people. George Lucas, Seji Ozawa, Rita Moreno, Cicely Tyson…..
And then they honored Carole King. Aretha Franklin came on stage, astounding everyone, playing the piano and singing, “You Make me Feel Like Natural Woman.” The audience was singing and crying. Carole King was singing and crying. The President, and First Lady, were singing…… and crying.
Everyone was on their feet. And I was crying.
And then, the show was ending. James Taylor was singing, then, Aretha again, Carole again, from the balcony, and the Obamas, and the audience…. were all singing, “I Feel the Earth Move Under My Feet.”
And I was still crying.
At the end of 2015, and at the onset of a new year……. follow your dreams……
“Do, or do not. There is no try.” So, you must do….
Happy 2016. And….. Do!
