The original song was written in 1945, and has been an international hit by various artists off and on ever since. It's a love song... of a woman who finally finds love in the arms of a man. But it has sort of become a symbolic song of finding happiness after difficult times because of its release just following WWII.
This rose was blooming outside Rick and Ellen's house where we had our reunion. This rose changes from pink to peachy to gold tones as it opens.
It seems like a good symbol of the time the Impossibles had together. Not a one of the team members has had the life we all imagined as young people. There have been difficult bumps along the way for each one. Life changes in hue and color, but ever unfolds, and becomes a thing of beauty.
As we shared and prayed and hugged... wondering of course, if we would all be there for a 60th or even 55th reunion, we can all say, despite the bumps and bruises, that life is a thing of happy hues where love is found, la vie en rose.
Home safely... tomorrow I have to get busy again.
