Happiness is finding a program on the radio playing songs Stephen Sondheim said he wished he'd written. Among the selections was one I'd never heard before, a lump-in-the-throat-joyful-AHA-moment-feeling-at-the-end sort of song, written for a voice just like mine.
Happiness is coming home to discovering that I already have the sheet music for this song among the books on the shelves in my studio.
Happiness is setting a goal to learn to sing and play the song this week. I will sing it for others sometime soon, in the hope of giving them that same lump-in-the-throat-joyful-AHA-moment sort of feeling it gave to me :-)
New Words, new melody. This is happiness.
I'm not going to come right out and tell what the song is. Not yet. Though there is a big fat clue among the words you've just read.
And here is another big clue.
