I’m Smiling Because ~~

“Carry your candle, run to the darkness
Seek out the hopeless, confused and torn
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle, and go light your world
Take your candle, and go light your world…”

Kathy Troccoli ~~ “Carry Your Candle”



Carry your candle and light world today.   <3

Why are you smiling ?

  1. It is hard standing back to see the killer is only put in jail with no stronger retribution. I have been praying for me asking God to calm me as well as sorrow for the families for the unexpected loss.

  2. I pray for the parents, sisters, brothers and friends who are dealing with this terrible loss. I pray that all of us in this World take a moment and think on how we can help to change even a small part of today’s evil.

    1. Gina,
      If only we could somehow mass produce more people like our revered “Trio”, who spread song and joy and light and happiness where ever they go, perhaps we could change even a larger part of the evil that exists-that is, neutralize it for all time. It’s a sad time here in Forida. mark

  3. Every time we can encourage, offer a solution to a problem, cause someone to laugh, help to problem solve, lead another to a more joy filled life, we are carrying that candle into the world. Let us each do that in our own way.

  4. I’m smiling because while watching the Olympics last night I heard at least two of the skaters using Il Vollo as the music to skate by. What a very pleasant surprise! – Allene

    1. Yes Allene, I saw that too.
      One of the South Korean skaters danced to a very familiar tune but I couldn’t think of its title or who the singer was. I remembered that on an episode of Everyone Loves Raymond where they travel to Rome, they played that same song as background music.
      I was able to find the name of the song and singer. It was Mi mancherai from
      Il Postino/The Postman and was sung by Andrea Bocelli. I have been playing it all day. The accordion music makes you feel like you are in Italy😊I’m smiling because the music makes me happy.

  5. I’m smiling because today the sun was out, and it was warm enough to walk-dance by the river to IL VOLO! One of my greatest joys!

    And also because I’ve seen miracles (beyond joy, hope, enthusiasm, and gratitude) come through IL VOLO’s music. Someone I know had a very serious mental illness for decades, and after listening to IL VOLO played daily in her home, she healed from her condition (back in 2012). She also had prayer and positive intentions sent her way, And Divine Grace angels said being uplifted by IL VOLO’s music was a significant part of her being able to break free of her condition.

    With all the challenges on our planet, every smile, every song, every dance, every hug Truly makes a difference. IL VOLO and friends, I’m so grateful for every one of you!

    Love from Jeanine
