Creating people's geographies
And I was utterly charmed by a star of the 40s: Gene Kelly. This actor-dancer-choreographer maestro spearheaded a discovery and love of quality americana encouraged by my American grand uncle who lived in Kelly’s hometown of Pittsburg, which I’ll have to detail in another post one day.
Anyway, here’s Singin’ in the Rain. It’s currently threatening rain here in autumnal Sydney (we could well do with it with our reduced water dam levels) but its the real sentiment of the song that fits right in with how I feel. Hope it puts a smile on someone’s face out there, too. Kelly is a joy to watch and his own high-beam smile delightful to behold. ;)
