Feeling the hard and troubling things, listening to music and catching up on paperwork, itunes brings me Oh, Brother Where Art Thou? and I try to learn the lyrics for Keep on the Sunny Side. My three who loves the flowers has us singing Mr. Sun, Sun, Mr. Golden Sun each day this spring and I have been wanting to add Sunny Side to our repetoire. It’s a little bit of a spiritual, but the concert this week for the Somerville Middle School kids included a bunch of spirituals that seemed to go over just fine….

See if you can learn it with me and we’ll get all the kids singing it:)


And if you get ambitious, add I’ll Fly Away, which feels like a good solution some days, too:
