“All the Things You Are.”   Live with Ken Peplowski  (clarinet) and Friends, honoring Benny Goodman.  Jerome Kern wrote the music, and the words are by Oscar Hammerstein II.

Jazz musicians love this classic.  Charlie Parker said that this song had his favorite lyrics. He used to call it “YATAG” which is an acronym for the lines “you are the angel glow” in the “B” part of the tune.

“You are the promised kiss of springtime
That makes the lonely winter seem long
You are the breathless hush of evening
That trembles on the brink of a lovely song.
You are the angel glow that lights the star,
The dearest things I know are what you are.
Someday my happy arms will hold you,
And someday I’ll know that moment divine
When all the things you are, are mine.”

Great White near the Camelia River in Tropicana Co-Op, Ft. Myers, Fla. Paul Goldfinger ©  January 2019.

 

The Great White is  about 3 feet tall, a little shorter than the Great Blue.  It has long black legs.   It weighs a little over 2 pounds, but its wing span is 4 feet.  Around the time when Ocean Grove was founded, the Great White Egret was endangered due to the needs of the hat industry. But it has come roaring back.  It hunts for fish and small animals like frogs.

Lakes Park Farmers Market. Ft. Myers, Fla
1/16/19

Every year we try to find the southwest Florida’s equivalent of a Jersey tomato, but, although these look great, they fall down in the taste and texture department.  The flavor is flat, and the texture is mealy.   So, we will have to wait for those Jersey beefsteaks to make their debut next August.

Eileen has two of these colorful hats from Madagascar, an island in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of Mozambique (south Africa.)   Today we were at that shop, and here is the true conversation:

Me: (being polite, but not actually wanting another $50 hat.)   “Do you want another hat?”

Eileen:  “That would be 3.  I only have one head.”

Me:  “OK.  There is some truth in what you say.”

E:  “Let’s go the mushroom lady.”  She leads me there.  Around here the merchants are specialists.

E: “They want $5.00 for a few small portobellos; Publix charges $3.69 for a bigger box. And let’s skip the bananas. I’ll get them at Publix  also.”

Me:  I thought farmers markets are supposed to be cheaper than super markets.  (true disclosure:  Publix is a weak second to Wegmans. We miss the W man.)

E:  “Would you please carry this:”  She hands me a Wegman’s bag which we brought from Jersey.  It is colorful, the best bag in town.    It’s  filled with produce and it is pretty heavy. She bought three baby bok choys which I suggested, but now I’m not sure why.

Me:  “Here’s fresh dill.  We can have chicken soup.”

E:  “OK”

Me:  (whining) “How can I take pictures carrying this?”

E:  I’ve had enough. Let’s go.
