Description
The power of staying in the moment can be learned from amazing people whom we love. This song is dedicated to my grandparents Bea and Owen, who were masters of teamwork and accepting things as they come, 'to just be.'

I can't thank Freddy and Yves enough for their patience and hard work. This song is another wonderful example of teamwork by FLY!!

Freddy - Drums, acoustic guitar, edit
Laurie - Owner/author, vocal, piano, upright bass

Lyrics
Just to Bea

Verse
To have the strength of character
With open eyes
And open mind
The see the world
As it really is
Day by day
Wide awake
Accepting faithfully

To care for friends
Share the love
Adventures everyday
Travel near and far
To laugh at one’s mistakes
Live less seriously
With everlasting love
Accepting faithfully

Chorus
Did she ever know
How she touched those around?
Did she ever know
How she inspired big and small?
And did she ever know
The respect in all our minds?
Did she ever know
She’d be missed by us all?

Bridge
The lives of saints are told in tales
Their legacy is clear
But strength that only some possess
Is usually less obvious
And is accepted faithfully

Chorus

Wow...
This is gorgeous! The bass intro into Laurie's vocal... what a beautiful voice you have. The harmonies, likewise, are just lovely, mixed in really well. Well done to Yves on the orchestral parts and Freddie on drums and guitar. Great team effort. If I could pick nits maybe I would, but there are none. Kudos to all.

Hi Laura. Sounds like this song means a lot to you. Your singing is rich and emotive. Wonderful warm backer from the crew and Freddy has got the mix very well placed and balanced. I'm impressed that Yves can play so many instruments at once :-) Thanks, Peter.

Love the acoustic bass at the start ... actually, nice recorded bass ... a beautiful full recording and your voice really touched something in me ... you have a good thing going with these talented souls. Lovely orchestration and Freddy's drums are solid and well played. You sure have a strong and tonefull voice ... nice harmonies. Fantastic!
Cheers

Sterling wrork from you three...
I really liked how this opened up from the nice bass intro, and your artwork eloquently describes the kind of mood this listener felt enjoying this beautifully tranquil piece. Everything falls into place so well here--I'd not not know who to single out for honors, because you've all excelled yourselves to a very high degree here. In closing, thanks for sharing something I'd gladly pay to listen to; it is superb. Michael
