MusicMonday: Little Girl Blue by Nina Simone

So it's finally here. Our last week in Amsterdam has landed and with it, glorious sunshine. It's all the prompting I need to down tools a little more this week and explore some of the many things I still want to see, though I'd need another month or two to do everything I want to do. Ain't that just the way life goes?

NewMan keeps telling me that "we'll be back". I'm not sure what intelligence he is basing this on seeing as there are a 100 new places we want to visit or maybe live in first but I've started to learn that there is something comforting to be found in trusting in him, even when I doubt the sense.

I'll share more information about our next stop soon enough, but for now enjoy a #MusicMonday that I find strangely comforting. I've listened to this song innumerable times since I stole a CD of Nina Simone's Greatest Hits from my father aged around 13. Although the song is sort of sad, I feel a rush of great inner happiness every time I hear it. So I hope it delivers the same for you... It's one of my favourite songs of all time so I feel a little vulnerable sharing it, like this will dilute the pleasure for me. That's kind of strange.
I didn't take many Instagrams this week, well not as many as I usually do. But they tell some stories nonetheless.
