Music Monday--Girl from Ipanema

The bossa nova song "The Girl from Ipanema" turns 50 years old this year.  The real "Girl from Ipanema" and inspiration for the song is 68 year old Heloisa Eneida Menezes Paes Pinto.

"Back then, I never thought I'd get old," she said. "But youth passes. We have to live each moment."

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
