When General Hospital begins airing new episodes, fans will be eagerly awaiting the outcome of two Port Charles characters they love to hate. Obrecht and Brad are both behind bars for crimes they did not commit. Each of them has done things they knew were wrong but now they are paying the price for the actions of others. Peter framed Liesel, while Sonny and Julian put the fear of God in Brad making him confess to orchestrating the kidnapping of Jonah and replacing him with the dead baby. Everyone in Port Charles has turned their backs on Liesl except for Robert, Jason, and Spinelli. They are working hard to prove that Peter is guilty and set Obrecht free.
Dainty as a butterfly watch as she whirls
This morning I decided on a new anthem to get me through to the other side of the COVID-19 pandemic. It's Maureen McGovern's 1973 hit, "The Morning After." This song was written by Al Kasha and Joel Hirschhorn for the 1972 blockbuster movie "The Poseidon Adventure." McGovern recorded her version of the tune in 1974 and it quickly went to number one on the pop charts. For those who have never seen the movie, it is about a luxury liner that capsizes and there was a tremendous loss of life. There were numerous perils within the upsidedown vessel for those who initially escaped death. During the course of the film, however, some of those who believed they would make it out alive perished along the way. The rest continued to endure great trials as they sought to survive. At the movie's end, only a few of the ship's passengers emerged alive and well. They stood, gazing upon the sun shining on the morning after, as the song was playing.
During the pandemic my husband and I have been listening to a lot of music to keep our spirits up. We have enjoyed rock, country, pop, soul, new wave, reggae, go go and R&B. One song in particular that motivates me personally right now is “Break my stride” by Matthew Wider. This catchy toon has a calypso beat and lyrics that stick in your head. The chorus has been my anthem for the past month.
