Song of the Day: Jose Gonzalez - Stay Alive (from The Secret Life of Walter Mitty)

I first heard this song during the closing credits of the new movie, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.  Loved it, and I stayed to the end to hear it all.  Beautiful song.

Speaking of Walter Mitty, did you see the movie yet?  I loved it!  This was the motto of Life Magazine in the movie--not sure if that was actually the magazine's motto but I like it:
To see things thousands of miles away, things hidden behind walls and within rooms, things dangerous to come to, to draw closer, to see and be amazed and to feel that is the purpose of life.


And, of course, the short story:

Read it!  It's very short, and it's good!
