Welcome to another installment of Movies, Movies, Movies! Just a note about a change. Up until now, I have designated the winning or nomination of an Academy Award (Oscar) separately from other nominations and wins.

Thursday Inspiration 68 — “Motherless Children,” by Eric Clapton

Since music has been on my mind a lot, when I saw the prompt I thought of music involving mothers. First thought was Roger Waters', “Mother,” but that's a little too dark for this bright and beautiful day. Instead I'm going for a song about motherless children.
