I grew up listening to all of his wonderful music and I am deeply saddened to hear of his passing. As a little girl, watching The Land Before Time, and Balto, to my early teenage years watching Titanic, How the Grinch Stole Christmas and The Mask of Zorro, James Horner would give me the ability to close my eyes and make me escape into my own world where music and happiness was all that mattered. You didn’t have to really know James Horner to have his music touch your soul and make you feel or think of precious memories. Every time I had to study or just wanted to listen to relaxing music the first playlist that I would always go to was my movie soundtrack list that I made! James Horner made me feel so many emotions that I will never forget; when I felt alone, when I was missing someone, when I was happy, when I was just thinking, the list goes on. Even when I would daydream I was walking along a beautiful meadow overlooking the horizon.
Thank you James Horner for giving us unforgettable music and for giving us a glimpse of your heart and soul. Heaven gained a remarkable musician who will make heavens choir even more wondrous!
I love all of his music, but here are just a of few of my all time favorites by him ❤
Annecy is one of the most beautiful, romantic places on earth, may be even more stunning than the majestic French Alps that surround it. Just 22 miles from Geneva in the Upper Savoy region of eastern France, Annecy is divided by small canals and streams running from the brilliant blue Lac Annecy. Highlights include the popular terraces that line the canals, giving it a Venice-like feel, as well as the famous Palais de l’Isle, a picturesque 12th century castle built right in the middle of one of the canals.
And all this time I thought Paris was the most romantic place on earth! I definitely have this enchanting place on my places I need to visit!
“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.”
