Moonrise



In honor of the super moon tonight, I am posting some of the pictures I have been collecting on East of the Sun, West of the Moon. More HERE and HERE.












Audrey Hepburn singing "Moon River" in Breakfast at Tiffany's

Dvořák's "Song to the Moon" by Sarah Brightman

English Translation of "Song to the Moon"

Moon, high and deep in the sky
Your light sees far,
You travel around the wide world,
and see into people's homes.
Moon, stand still a while
and tell me where is my dear.
Tell him, silvery moon,
that I am embracing him.
For at least momentarily
let him recall of dreaming of me.
Illuminate him far away,
and tell him, tell him who is waiting for him!
If his human soul is in fact dreaming of me,
may the memory awaken him!
Moonlight, don't disappear, disappear!

I LOVE "Moon River'- when I was much younger, I got to see it conducted by Henry Mancini himself!
