Written by John Denver in 1966 and recorded by Peter Paul and Mary.
A little music Trivia about this recording-

I guess this popped into my head because the Gramps and I will be
leaving this week, on a sort of Birthday/Anniversary gift to me and us.
We are going back to the Colorado mountains, to embrace the serene,
and natural wonders of our World.

Spring blooming shots and just couldn't resist adding them to this post.

and that is what I feel when I am
in the mountains
Cool, dry air.
Clear vibrant blue skies.

It seems that I once read that it was important for human beings to be
around things that
they themselves did not create.

that there are so many wonderous,
and beautiful things far greater than ourselves.

but most of all to keep in touch,

and the world is about to be transitioning,
It is a just because sort of day, sort of post, sort of thoughts.
Just because I was thinking about you,
Just because I am wishing you a fantastic week!
