Somewhere Over The Rainbow

We had a freak rain storm today.  When you live in the Mojave Desert in Calfornia rain in August is usually welcome.  The air is fresher and all the dust gets washed off of everything.  However the roads get covered with dirt because the desert can only absorb so much water and then it tends to run off.

It is beautiful here, and I was looking through some music to celebrate life, rainbows, and the new feelings that a summer rain can bring to a day.  I found this video from the Hawaiian, IZ (that is his abbreviated name).  If these lyrics do not hit you and bring on some emotion then you must be pretty set. His name is Israel Kamakawiwo’ole.

I believe a tribute to  his life belongs on my Words of Encouragement blog.

I might post more than one video to him.  I hope you enjoy it and that you do find comfort in the presentations.

You should watch this one, too. It is more insight to his life.
