It got very stormy last nightover our garden - and a rainbow was just visible:
Its been 23 years since I was last in Paris! Eek! My darling hubby took me there for our first Wedding Anniversary as a complete surprise to me - I was just told to pack a bag for the weekend - needless to say I didn't pack any comfortable shoes and ended up with very sore feet from all the walking. My most abiding memory is of one of the best meals we had in Paris - we bought ourselves some cheese, bread and wine and sat on the banks of the Seine overlooking Notre Dame and had our lunch. Magnifique! Here's me in 1986! It looks like I've been photoshopped!

I was inspired to join in with Sunday Postcard Art this week as they are doing the challenge Over The Rainbow. I couldn't do anything other than Judy Garland - she's one of my favourite singers and performers. One of my favourite films is Meet Me In St Louis - and every Christmas Eve I set aside a little time for myself to watch this and hear her sing Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas. I've been lucky enough to hear Lorna Luft sing, Judy's other daughter, but have never heard Liza - someone I would also love to have heard sing live.
Like most of our great singers she had a tragic short life and all that emotion found its expression in her voice. To me a singer has to be able to do more than just sing - they have to feel what they're singing. Here's my postcard and for all you Judy fans - here's a little big of magic
