The past week has been gorgeous. It felt like a proper Spring- Summer even, for us PNW folk. But today we’re back to cold and gray. Surprisingly, I’m enjoying it almost as much as I enjoyed our warm, sunny weather just yesterday. But don’t push it, Weather. I’ve only got 4 days, tops.┬áThis weather always puts me in the mood for coffee and Nina Simone. As luck would have it, Ne Me Quitte Pas just started playing on my Chanson Pandora channel, thus prompting this quick Nina Simone and Coffee Appreciation post.

Nina Simone – Ne Me Quitte Pas

The original from singer-songwriter, Jacques Brel.

And for good measure, the English adaptation, If You Go Away sung by Frank Sinatra.
