"I Left My Heart..."

...in San Francisco...
High on a hill, it calls to me...
to be where
little cable cars climb halfway to the stars!
The morning fog may chill the air...
I don't care!
My love waits there...in San Francisco
above the blue and windy sea.
When I come home to you,
San Francisco,
your golden sun will shine for me!
~George Cory and Douglass Cross
1954
Ahhh...the jewel that inspired this song
was in turn
the inspiration for today's
Fancy Full Heart:
the beautiful, elegant, Victorian, storied,
cosmopolitan, laid back,
wild and crazy city of San Francisco.
This day...
may you find a special song in your heart
that sings of
treasured memories too!
And remember,
always...
If you're going to San Francisco,
be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.”
~
J. B. Phillips

This is a good one Peg. Ilove the little bubbles at the bottom. It fills your drawing with a lively spirit. Have a great weekend.
