James Agee anniversary

It's my sister's birthday today and I was looking who else was born on this day.  Found James Agee prize winning author of plays and films.

He also wrote the words for one of my favourite songs set to music by Samuel Barber.  'Sure on this shining night'. It makes me want to cry every time I listen to it.  When I took singing lessons a few years ago I tried to sing this so I know how difficult it is to do justice to it even though it sounds very simple.

Thanks to my sister for her love and support and thanks to James Agee for the song.
