My choice for a happy song this week is John Denver's "Country Roads." I've loved this song since I was a boy, have played it recently with a group, and the opening lyrics describe the part of the country I was in over the weekend:
Almost heaven, West VirginiaThe Blue Ridge mountains were a gorgeous mix of reds, yellows, oranges, and greens, and the Shenandoah River was clear and sparkling with reflected sunlight. I had the chance to hike some mountain trails, and it didn't feel like "almost heaven" - it felt like the real thing.
