Play Misty For Me ...


“Look at me
I’m as helpless as a kitten up a tree
And I feel like I’m clinging to a cloud
I can’t understand
I get misty just holding your hand

Walk my way
And a thousand violins begin to play
Or it might be the sound of your hello
That music I hear
I get misty the moment you’re near….”
         ~ “Misty”
~ “Misty” is a jazz standard written in 1954 by pianist Erroll Garner, and lyrics by Johnny Burke were added later. It became the signature song of Johnny Mathis, appearing on his 1959 album “Heavenly.” Artists recording versions include Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin, Frank Sinatra and Sarah Vaughn.
  
“Misty” was part of the soundtrack of the 1971 film “Play Misty For Me,” starring and directed by the wonderful Clint Eastwood in his directorial debut.

The mist rolls through a hillside after a summer rain shower on a steamy early September evening at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.

Whitetails In The Winter Mist ...



“I please myself with the graces of the winter scenery, and believe that we are as much touched by it as by the genial influences of summer.”
                      ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
                                ~ 1803-1882

Four beautiful white-tailed deer does show off their whitetails in the winter mist as a light rain falls in the late afternoon in the park.
