Heart and Soul

The women and children of Martha's world have fallen into unkind hands. As prisoners, their days roll by in a blanket of grey.

One day, Elizabeth decides she will teach piano lessons, and although she doesn't know how to play, she gives it a go. She sits down at an upright piano in the senior's home where they are being held captive, and she begins to play... a ditty that eveyone has played at least once in their life, the Hoagy Carmichael tune, Heart and Soul.  The lightness of the plucky, plinky little tune brings a moment of sunshine to her world.

Onward to my 3-thousand word quota... but thought I'd share... cause the tune brought sunshine to my grey day, too... may it do the same for you.



  1. Hoagy rocks.

    So do you.

    So does this blog.

    (So does Martha.)

  2. I'd prefer "Discerning and Appreciative Reader" if it's all the same to you.
