Moon River (1961)


そして流れでフランクシナトラの歌うMoon Riverを聴きながら

When I was a little boy, I once walked into my grandmothers room, and this song was playing on her old radio. She was holding a framed picture of my long-dead grandfather and herself from around the time they got married right after the war. They were tears on her cheeks. I asked her why she was sad, and she said she wasn't sad at all- she was crying because the world was such a beautiful place, and she got to experience it with someone she truly loved. I was only 5 or 6 years old at the time, but I will never forget that.
