I just have to share this. It doesn't have anything to do with wool, or folk art, or sewing. But it has everything to do with art. Perhaps some of you watched the CNN Heroes program, and if not you can still see it in re-runs. It's really a wonderful show which awards people who are doing selfless, heroic things. Ordinary people, who saw a need and decided to help. It's quite inspiring. But that's not what I'm posting about.

One of the performers on the Heroes program was singer Christina Aguilara. So what, you might say, and I would certainly understand. She wasn't particularly on my radar up to that point. I had her sort of pigeonholed in my mind as a Britney Spears cohort; someone who started out young and went down a sort of trashy, skanky path. Sorry. I don't mean to be crude, but the only other time I remember seeing her perform as an adult, it looked sort of like soft porn. Mind you, it looked like she was good at it, but it wasn't of much interest to me.

Well, those days are over. Her performance was a standing ovation show stopper. It was absolutely Beautiful. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
