Falling For Nature

The birds sing in a three part harmony

The squirrels gather their food

A rabbit dashes across the back yard

All under the ever watchful eyes of my cat

The dogs of the neighborhood howl at sirens

The leaves softly rustle with an autumn breeze

Clouds play tag with the sun

And I dream the day will last forever

Chicago, Cream, Credence Clearwater Revival, Cher… Crying, Come On In, Calling All Angels, Carry On Wayward Son… Cello, crescendo, concert… what can I choose?

One of my first favorite songs impacted my love of smooth harmonies.  I recall my mom being a fan of Mama Cass Elliot and we watched her on Merv Griffin or Mike Douglas that I vaguely remember (could have been a rerun too).  I just remember Mom pointing her out and then hearing California Dreaming not long afterwards.  The sound was great!

I have since listened to many of the Mamas and Papas songs but still go back to “California Dreaming” as my favorite.  They had some of the best harmonies I have heard, and it was so smooth… and who doesn’t want to think about someplace warm on a winter’s day?
