Today is the birthday of Francis Albert Sinatra, born on December 12, 1915 in Hoboken, New Jersey and better known as Frank Sinatra.
And I have no better way to celebrate his birthday than in My Way...



I'm pretty sure I've told you before but I will again, if music were aloud in Greek Orthodox funerals, I would have this song playing in mine and I believe there only very few days in the last something years that I haven't listen to this song at least once a day because...

"...I've loved, I've laughed and cried
I've had my fill, my share of losing..."

"...Regrets I've had a few
But then again too few to mention..."

"... I stood tall
And did it my way..."

You might have seen - and/or also remember when we had it here - there's a Song Challenge in Chat Room and today's order was "a song you never get tired of" . Well, that is definitely the song I never get tired of, but I wanted it to share with you so I picked a different one for the challenge.

In the very darkest time of the year, we honor the light.
December 13 is a very special day here in Sweden when we celebrate the Lucia tradition.
And for many years now, I have made it my own tradition to go out in the night to light up hundreds of candles with the intention to bring prayers of light and love our world.
It's always a very special and magical feeling, even if this night turned into a snow storm (will show you some behind the scenes in the next video haha)

The song that I'm singing is my own version of the traditional Lucia song.
You can find the Swedish lyrics and a English translation down below (or in the subtitles).

I hope you will like the song and the video. It's made with love to all of you ♥

LUCIA SONG LYRICS - SWEDISH
Natten går tunga fjät runt gård och stuva.
Kring jord som sol'n förlät, skuggorna ruva.
Drömmar med vingesus under oss sia,
tänd dina vita ljus, Sankta Lucia.

Trollsejd och mörkermakt ljust du betvingar,
signade lågors vakt skydd åt oss bringar.
Drömmar med vingesus, under oss sia,
tänd dina vita ljus, Sankta Lucia.

Stjärnor som leda oss, vägen att finna,
bli dina klara bloss, fagra prästinna.
//Drömmar med vingesus, under oss sia,
tänd dina vita ljus, Sankta Lucia.//

LYRICS OF THE LUCIA SONG - ENGLISH TRANSLATION
Night walks with a heavy step
Round yard and house,
As the sun departs from earth,
Shadows are brooding.
Dreams of wings rustling over us in prophesy,
Light your white candles, Saint Lucia.

Spells and dark powers, with light you subject.
Guard of the blessed flames, protection for us brings.
Dreams of wings rustling over us in prophesy,
Light your white candles, Saint Lucia.

Stars that lead us, the way to find,
become your clear flares, fair priestess.
Dreams of wings rustling over us in prophesy,
Light your white candles, Saint Lucia.

“Because I was more often happy for other people,
I got to spend more time being happy.
And as I saw more light in everybody else,
I seemed to have more myself.”
~ Victoria Moran




Image



“Sometimes you’ll hear, ‘People don’t change.’
This is true more often than it ought to be,
but listen again:
‘People don’t change.’
It says ‘don’t,’ not ‘can’t.’"

"Fall in love with yourself
until you finally feel like home."
~ Juansen Dezon

"The earth has never stopped moving, growing,
and evolving for anyone and neither should you."
