I don’t remember how old I was the first time I heard the song “Over the rainbow” but I was very young, maybe 4 or or 5 years old. Like most people I heard it for the first time when I watched The Wizard of Oz. According to Wikipedia it was written for the movie. The music was written by Harold Arlen and lyrics by E.Y. Harburg and sung by Judy Garland. I was instantly moved by the music and even more by the words. Still to this day when I hear it sung I can get teary. It moves me that much. I recently came across the video below of Jason Castro on American Idol and I have been watching it over and over and over. Why does this get to me so much I wonder.
I think it is my soul trying to remind me, once again, that dreams really do come true. Troubles really can melt like lemon drops…and dreams that you dare to…why oh why can’t I? You can! my higher self whispers to me during this song. Dream big because dreams really do come true.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I do and while it plays listen for your soul whispering to you too.
