Happy Birthday, Seann
Someone from the series Bunheads must have seen Moonrise Kingdom last summer because this gorgeous song, "Cuckoo," written by Benjamin Britten for his work, Friday Afternoons, children's songs for children's chorus and piano, Op. 7,was featured in this week's episode. I'd forgotten about it, as it's been months seen I saw Wes Anderson's wonderful movie. Hearing it again tonight has me in tears. I'm worried about Jake, not that his health is an issue, I'm just worried is all. And it being my brother-in-law's birthday (he would have been 31), I'm a little on edge already. Anyway, this short melody is just too beautiful not to be shared. The "cuckoo's" really do me in.
