. . . and I can't get it out of my head.

Do you ever hear a song and can't get it out of your head? I have just come from the play, Man of La Mancha. It is a musical chronicling the story of Don Quixote. The whole story takes place in the dungeon in Seville, Spain. Before today, I didn't know what the story was about. But I was well aware of the theme song that runs throughout, The Impossible Dream. There are many wonderful songs, but this one is unforgettable.

Click here "The Impossible Dream"

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go

To right the unrightable wrong
To love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star

This is my quest
To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far

To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march into Hell
For a heavenly cause

And I know if I'll only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I'm laid to my rest

And the world will be better for this
That one man, scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star
