Randy Graff: "A Quiet Thing" from Flora the Red Menace. …Because it is! "Happiness comes in on tip toe."

As a woman in her 50s, this is what I have come to learn whenever something mind-blowing happens to me. And, that's when I know it is REAL.

Fred Ebb's perfect lyrics cut straight to the heart, and John Kander's music makes me want to dance with my husband at our wedding all over again.

Selena Jones' version on YouTube is my favorite because hers is a mature, soulful voice who has been through it and discovers true happiness quietly.

"Well, whataya know"… is right.
