It was a CD of an artist I had never heard about. Her name is Amy Duffy. She's 23, from Wales and in January 2008 was named 2nd place in BBC's Sound of 2008 listing. Her voice has been compared to that of the 1960's singer, Dusty Springfield.
I pulled the CD out of the case, took it to my car as I had errands to run, and was taken in by the music and lyrics of this young artist. She has a bit of Nora Jones soul and grit, and the strong lyrics content of India Arie and Corinne Bailey Rae...three of my favorite female songbirds all born in the 1970's. Errands completed, I brought the CD inside and popped it in the player while I did scrapbooking. The songs played over and over, and I am getting more familiar with the music. Timi, was right! She thought I'd like it and I DO!!!(To the left, Timi's personal favorites)
Made my day! Thanks, Andrew and Timi for your thoughtfulness.
Now I think I need to think about passing the just because forward. Maybe you can, too, to someone who needs an extra smile today.
