Amen, Sister!

Ron here.  I, too, will be having a melancholic Christmas, but I think for different reasons than Amba.  My best friends mother passed away suddenly, almost 2 weeks ago (!), and this has caused her and her family considerable difficulty, as Grandma was a big part of financially helping a family with 2 kids and a lot of struggling themselves.  I just saw her mother at a wonderful Thanksgiving and now… gone.  I'm still having a hard time grasping it myself.  And me?  Things are bad for me and may get worse….I'm trying to keep myself in my home of now 26 years, but I'm having a hard time doing so.  Even I'm unsure what will happen, as I have no family of my own to turn to.

But while Peter, Paul and Mary are one way to look at a Gloomy Tinsel Season, I've always chosen another song:  Fairytale of New York.

My first thought was, hey, shouldn't this be an Amba song, too?  Sure, why not.   It's a duet between Shane MacGowan (poster child for British Dentistry) and Kirsty MacColl, and rapidly becoming a New Holiday standard, one I hope to record with my friend CamieVog someday. So, let's hope the New Year brings better things for us all, God bless us.

Melancholy Christmas!

Melancholy Christmas!

Mary Travers was 45 when this clip was made. How beautiful she still was! So sad how time carries it all away.  I heard this song in a church in Chapel Hill a year ago, still raw and fragile from J's death.  Now I'm sitting here draped in cats, who look at me lovingly (or maybe forgivingly) when I sing along, surrounded by pictures of people who are gone. I myself am going, going . . . but not so fast, Louie.
