I intended to post a piece I wrote for mlmm soulmates about meeting my husband – a tale of love at first sight.

Then, I came across this song, and well, Roberta expresses it much better than I ever could.

“Our joy will fill the earth” hasn’t always been the reality, but here we are, eight months shy, of 40 years since the “first time ever I saw [his] face . . .”

Roberta first recorded the song in 1969. Clint Eastwood asked to use it in his movie, Play Misty for Me. Roberta wanted to do a new version; the result is in the movie and on her 1971 album, Quiet Fire. (She won Grammies for the album and song.)
