Gracias a la Vida

This one's for PeaceBang, in honor of her blog entry on gratitude, and also in memory of Mev Puleo, at one of whose memorial services (there were several, back in 1996 when she died at the age of 32) this song played - though I think it was the Joan Baez version, and not this original by Violeta Parra. Now I always think of Mev when I hear it.

Jane, you've won an award at MadPriest's place. Did you know?

No, I didn't! Wow. Thanks.

I love this song, thanks! I first heard it sung by Holly Near, and have recently been partial to Mercedes Sosa (what a voice!), but this may be the best! We've actually used it in church, btw.
