Feeling good

Another year – and a decade – draws to a close. I don’t know about you but my thoughts tend to look forward to what may be coming in the New Year rather than only looking back on what has been.

In spite of an uncertain economic outlook in 2011, I’m feeling good about the coming year both professionally and personally. One song in particular epitomizes that outlook for me, not coincidentally called Feeling Good.

Many artists have covered this song since it first appeared in 1965. My two favourites are the versions by Michael Bubl̩ and Nina Simone Рtwo singers who bring very different and powerful treatments to a modern classic.

Choices and best wishes for the New Year.
