Elaine Stritch (February 2, 1925 – July 17, 2014)
Here is a recording of Elaine after 14 hours of recording the cast album of COMPANY. They saved her song for last, it was about three a.m. and she wasn't hitting the notes. She came in the next morning and nailed it.
My mother was an avid gardener and her yard was overflowing with a huge variety of flowering plants. Each year she took hundreds of photographs of her plants as they flowered. I was looking through some files and found them so I compiled a few into a short video.
The music "We Will Rest In You," is from a CD called "Blessed Assurance" played by Les stahl published by World Library Publications.
When my mom died, in memory of her, I took one of everything from her yard and transplanted it into mine where they are thriving in my full sun light. She often recited this poem:
The kiss of the sun for pardon
The song of the birds for mirth
One is nearer God's heart in a garden
Than anywhere else on earth
