The Little Sparrow

I recently watched La Vie En Rose about Edith Piaf. I don't know if it was intentional, but her given nick-name, Piaf which means Sparrow originally came from The Little Sparrow, and her most beloved Catholic Saint was Saint Thérèse de Lisieux, The Little Flower. Interestingly (to me) she was the saint that I had chosen for my confirmation in the Catholic church when I was 16 years old. My patron saint, if you will.

What an incredible voice rooting in a life of such sorrow and tragedy. Oh my. Life is amazing like that though. For some odd reason, there are the times and the people in those times who cease not to enchant years and years after their prime.
