Queen of Soul

We have sadly lost another great voice who gave so many of us the soundtrack to our lives. Aretha Franklin one of my favourite singers has left behind a great legacy and as with many great artists her music will go on for generations to come.

Too many great tracks to name but personal favourite of mine of course is ‘Natural born Woman’ her words resonated with me at a very difficult time in my life. Having lost my mother, and, for a while my sense of purpose, I fell hopelessly in love and the man (love of my life) in questioned made me feel exactly like the lyrics.

Music can of course be therapeutic and can transport us back in time to a place or a special person and unlock precious memories. Hearing this song on various media tributes I am remembering this past love today…oh lordy where are the chocolate biscuits..the healthier option.
