Peggy Lee


I'd like to read this discussion, but I can't see how to do that. Seems odd that I should have to write before reading…

Then I will begin this discussion. I am right now listening to "Is That All There Is?"
This was a somewhat late Peggy Lee song, which came out when I was a teenager. It fascinated and mystified and charmed me at the time.
Now that I am nearly 53, and listening to me now, I am not one whit less fascinated and mystified and charmed by this exquisite performance.
I have ever so much to be thankful for to my certain knowledge now then when I was a teen.
I have heard since several recordings of her performances and I love them all. She really got me on to appreciation of Torch Singers.
I love you Peggy, where ever you are. Did you really say those words when you realised that you were on the other side? I bet you didn't, Sweetie! Pessimissim and cynicism are fun (I include both, because, I confess, I confuse the two, and by the way, if anyone can straighten me out upon this point, it will be greatly appreciated), but even in a world where there is torture and apparently random disease and disaster, I sense an undercurrent of permanent and unshakable goodness, always waiting til we get through the next crisis, whether it be small or huge and overwhelming, just waiting, and we are all of us permanently safe.
