Song for New Year's Eve

When thinking of which song to post in order to kiss 2012 goodbye I didn’t have to think too hard. Even though it’s only been with me for less than two months since I bought it, Cathy Jordan’s All the Way Home has become a regular feature on my playlist at home or in the car when I’m driving. I will be blogging about this sublime album in the New Year for sure, but in the meantime I shall leave you with the title-track. All the Way Home explains better than I could ever manage the reason why, more than five and a half years later, I continue to blog. I see us, bloggers, as peripatetic beings, travelling in a virtual world without frontiers and without the need for a passport, either. However, we always return to our point of departure. As the chorus of All the Way Home goes: “Maybe it’s the mountains high above the valley/maybe it’s the long road that winds us down/maybe it’s the sunbeams that kiss the water/maybe it’s you (blogger) that keeps callin’ me (to your) home”. For what I can only say: thank you, thank you very much for welcoming me into your virtual home and sharing your experiences with me. Happy New Year! May 2013 bring you health and success!

  2. I have been, and continue to be, awed by the warmth and the wonders I have found in the blogosphere. More human kindness than I had thought still existed.
    Health and happiness to you and yours for 2013 (and future years as well.)

  3. Happy New Year. I'll come back and listen when I can - right now I'm in the same room as a TV watching person and have no headphones.

    I'd not come across her although, as a Christy Moore fan, I'll probably find I'll like her.

  12. And here I was expecting Auld Lang Syne! I love your music, often so unexpected. I love this Cathy Jordan song and how you tie it to blogging, especially on a day that I heard a blog buddy of 5 years might quit. Keep blogging and sharing the music. Happy New Year, my friend!
