Unbearable Love

Remember the Ungame from the '70s?! When Dad and Mom visited us in California, we'd play it and learn all kinds of things about each other. That's when I found out, for instance, that Billy Graham was my dad's hero and who he'd want to invite to his birthday party.

I'd invite Walela to my party, in full Cherokee regalia. Walela is the Cherokee word for hummingbird, the inspiration for this family trio of Rita Coolidge, her sister Priscilla Coolidge, and Priscilla's daughter, Laura Satterfield.

In those moments when I want to die-and-go-to-heaven, I reach for Unbearable Love, their second album. Midst our incredible world-wide dysfunction (for lack of a better word!), "God Save Us From Ourselves" is well worth the hear (scroll down to the album and click on the musical-note icon after the title)..."for we know not what we do."


  1. i wanted to listen, but the icon didn't work for me. i'll try again later.


  2. Hmmm. It comes up on Real Player for me but takes several seconds before it connects. Every time I play it, I go to a Different Place where I cannot speak.... I hope you can eventually play it!
