ELLIS MARSALIS. From A New Orleans Christmas: “Christmas Time is Here.”
By Paul Goldfinger, Editor @Blogfinger (Re-posted from October 2015)
This carousel horse, photographed after the season in Seaside Heights, reminds me of Broadway—sometimes happy and sometimes sad. I’m thinking of the show Carousel which proclaims, “June is busting out all over.”
The Fantasticks has a song called “Round and Round” which begins as a gorgeous fantasy—-“Life is a colorful carousel,” but later the song becomes dark, sad, and scary.
However, for the most part, Broadway brings us joy as in “Oh What a Beautiful Morning” from Oklahoma.
I see this carousel, devoid of riders and seemingly sad because the season is over, and yet the scene, like a Broadway set, is bursting with vivid colors and, in a way, with memories of life itself.
So, in wondering about this photograph and how to see it, I decided that it is joyful and not sad, and if the horse could talk he would say, ” Please sir, I want more oats” (sorry for the Oliver joke, such as it is.) I wonder how a child would view it.
Here is MIMI HINES from a show called “The Roar of the Greasepaint—the Smell of the Crowd.” It is a happy song full of the sort of optimism that we often find in Broadway musicals and, sometimes, in life.

LANG LANG “Romance in E Minor” by Franz Liszt
Editor’s note: Bob Bowné has found beauty in this foggy-day winter scene at the Jersey Shore. His image brings us hope and reminds us that we can enjoy all the seasons, even in a summer town when the beach scene is quiet and the weather might be grey.
Here is a song from the show Grey Gardens sung by Christine Ebersole. Like Bob’s photo, and like most art, it can be beautiful while seeming sad at the same time.
And here’s a song for the guy who’s swinging from that cable without a net. Hopefully he can find beauty in his moment flying with the gulls in the mist.
RANI ARBO AND DAISY MAYHEM.
