1087 – Many Rivers To Cross

One more post for today, then I give up. It was a long night last night and I am pretty tired.

This is an image of Sunday afternoon. I took it on a slightly unusual way to the lake. Weather was beautiful, I was swimming, and in the evening I missed my train to Vienna. Well, bad time management. While I prepared dinner, time really slipped away. In the end I had the choice between eating and catching the train. Dinner won, I took Monday off and returned to Vienna the next day.

The Song of the Day is the Jimmy Cliff classic “Many Rivers To Cross“, today from the 2002 Blind Boys of Alabama album “Higher Ground”. This is an interesting song. I love their version, but I equally love all those other versions on YouTube as well. It’s really hard to choose a favorite. Here are Jimmy Cliff, Joe Cocker, Lenny Kravitz, Annie Lennox, Cher, Eric Burdon and The Animals, Bruce Springsteen, …

Well, maybe Annie Lennox. Does not happen that often, that a song moves me to tears.
