Falling Slowly

My husband just cranked up a YouTube clip in the cyber cafe and I’m falling in to the chorus with Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova as they perform “Falling Slowly.”  This cookery is a space to digest life’s ingredients.  It’s not glamorous, but as I load my dishwasher this evening, I’m relaxed because no one’s listening.  I’m not the vocalist in the family but guess who’s singing anyway?  We loved the soundtrack from the film, “Once.”  My thanks for the recommendation reaches out to novelist Robert Crooke, www.RobertCrooke.org, author of the newly released “Sunrise.”

“Falling Slowly” ranks as my top song for the Oscar favorite.  See “Once.”  Read “Sunrise.”  Listen to “Falling Slowly,”  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=938XY6DX02w
