RMS Titanic — 1912-2012

It was on this day in 1912 that the Royal Mail Steamer Titanic of the White Star Line set sail from her berth in Southampton, ultimately sailing into history and legend as the worst passenger-liner disaster in the world.  Fascination with the ship and its passengers and crew continues even after a century of time has passed.

Stormy Weather

Keeps rainin' all the time....

Don’t know why there’s no sun up in the sky
Stormy weather since my man and I ain’t together
Keeps raining all the time, the time
Life is bare, gloom and misery everywhere
Stormy weather, just can’t get my poor self together
I’m weary all the time, the time
So weary all the time

When he went, you went away, the blues walked in and met me
If he stays away, ol’ rocking chair will get me
All I do is pray, the Lord above will let me walk in the sun once more

Can’t go on, everything I had is gone
Stormy weather since my man and I ain’t together
It’s raining all the time

One of the finest singers the Real World has known passed away a few days ago.  Miss Lena Horne had known both sides of the blues, the pain and the delight, in her 92 years.  I think she emerged on the high side at the end.

Her signature song, of course, was “Stormy Weather,” and that’s what I based these photos on.  But if you want to hear the woman herself, just click on play….
