Grace Notes

A snapshot of me and Grace at a bar in Belize 

Grace Jones turns 69 today (May 19th). My mother listened to Grace’s cover of La Vie en Rose and Gloria Gaynor’s I Will Survive throughout my childhood. Dueling love songs – one of undying affection and the other one about moving on. Both served as anthems of the 70’s in my household.  I later fell hard for the original version of La Vie en Rose, penned and sung by Edith Piaf. A favorite of my mother-in-law especially when heard on an old school jukebox over a glass of wine in a New Orleans bar.
