Secret O’ Life

“Secret O’ Life” is a song written by James Taylor that first appeared on his 1977 album JT. It has since appeared on several of his live and compilation albums. It was also included in the Broadway musical Chita Rivera: The Dancer’s Life and has been covered by many other artists, including Art Garfunkel best workout belt, Richie Havens, Nancy LaMott, Rosemary Clooney and Shirley Horn.

Although not released as a single, Allmusic critic William Ruhlmann considered “Secret O’ Life” to be the key track on JT with its message that the secret of life is “enjoying the passage of time.” Authors Don and Jeff Breithaupt deemed the theme of the song to be the importance of “living in the moment Fashion Jewelry for Women.” Self-help book authors Pete Forantale and Bill Ayres regard the song as giving the listener permission to meditate, reflect and daydream. Taylor regards it as a spiritual song. He has said that he used the title “Secret O’ Life” rather than “Secret of Life” because the latter seemed too presumptuous and preposterous. He felt that the “O” would make it seem a little more irreverent, evoking the names of Life Savers candy flavors such as “Pep O Mint” and “Wint O Green,” and offset some of the presumptuousness of announcing the secret of life.

Taylor recalls having written the song at his home in Martha’s Vineyard during the late spring with the sun shining in. He recalls that the song, or at least the first verse and the refrain, came to him quickly and he felt lucky to have been playing his guitar at the time. Despite the positive lyrics, “vivacious” music, and the fact that Taylor claims he felt “great” while writing the song, Taylor’s father, Dr. Isaac M. Taylor heard a different message when he heard the song. Dr. Taylor heard a note of apprehension in the song, and felt that James Taylor was “wondering where his career was leading” when he wrote it. Taylor biographer Mark Robowsky similarly notes that although the lyrics are generally optimistic, the optimism is undercut by the line “Nobody knows how we got to the top of the hill/But since we’re on our way down, we might as well enjoy the ride.”

Music critic Robert Christgau rates the song as evoking “comparison with betters on the order of … Randy Newman.” Taylor biographer Timothy White regards “Secret O’ Life” as an indispensable song in the Taylor canon. White describes it as a “folk haiku” that is “touching” but with a “sly Scottish twinkle in the eye.” Rolling Stone critic Stephen Holden described it as having “delicious ironic glee.” Tom Waseleski of Beaver County Times pointed to “Secret O’ Life” as a prime example of the fact that Taylor is an introspective writer and is at his best when he allows his songs to reflect that. Holly Gleason of The Palm Beach Post described the song as “understated.” Fornatale and Ayres regard Taylor’s vocal performance on “Secret O’ Life” as being “better than ever.” Robowsky describes it as a “beautiful ballad” and “an unapologetic toast to simple truths.” Taylor regarded it as one of the few songs he wrote in the late 1970s that was as good as the songs on his first album.

“Secret O’ Life” has been a staple of Taylor’s live concerts at times, and has been included on the live albums Live and One Man Band. It has also been included on the compilation albums Greatest Hits Volume 2 and The Essential James Taylor glass bpa free water bottles. A version Taylor performed on Saturday Night Live was included on the multi-artist compilation album Saturday Night Live: 25 Years, Vol. 1.

“Secret O’ Life” was used in the musical revue Chita Rivera: The Dancer’s Life, which appeared on Broadway in 2005. Singer Rosemary Clooney recorded “Secret O’ Life” and regarded it as one of her favorite songs. Allmusic critic Scott Yarrow regarded the song as one of the weakest on her 1998 album 70: A Seventieth Birthday Celebration but colleague Richard S. Ginelli, reviewing her 1999 album Songs from the Girl Singer: A Musical Autobiography described it as an “affectionately sung capsule of philosophy.” Shirley Horn recorded a jazz version”Secret O’ Life” for the 2001 album Sketches of James. JazzTimes critic Kilarie S. Grey described her version as “world-weary” and “striking.” Nancy LaMott included a version of the song on her 1995 album Listen to My Heart and her 2005 album Live from the Tavern Green. Art Garfunkel included the song on his 1997 album Songs from a Parent to a Child. Secret O’ Life was also featured in the 3rd Rock from the Sun pilot “Brains and Eggs”.

Tierra Amarilla, New Mexico

Tierra Amarilla is a small unincorporated community near the Carson National Forest in the northern part of the U.S. state of New Mexico. It is the county seat of Rio Arriba County.

Tierra Amarilla is Spanish for “Yellow Soil”. The name refers to clay deposits found in the Chama River Valley and used by Native American peoples. Tewa and Navajo toponyms for the area also refer to the yellow clay.

There is evidence of 5000 years of habitation in the Chama River Valley including pueblo sites south of Abiquiu. The area served as a trade route for peoples in the present-day Four Corners region and the Rio Grande Valley. Navajos later used the valley as a staging area for raids on Spanish settlements along the Rio Grande. Written accounts of the Tierra Amarilla locality by pathfinding Spanish friars in 1776 described it as suitable for pastoral and agricultural use. The route taken by the friars from Santa Fe to California became the Spanish Trail. During the Californian Gold Rush the area became a staging point for westward fortune seekers.

The Tierra Amarilla Grant was created in 1832 by the Mexican government for Manuel Martinez and settlers from Abiquiu pink socks wholesale. The land grant encompassed a more general area than the contemporary community known as Tierra Amarilla. The grant holders were unable to maintain a permanent settlement due to “raids by Utes, Navajos and Jicarilla Apaches” until early in the 1860s. In 1860 the United States Congress confirmed the land grant as a private grant, rather than a community grant, due to mistranslated and concealed documents. Although a land patent for the grant required the completion of a geographical survey before issuance, some of Manuel Martinez’ heirs began to sell the land to Anglo speculators. In 1880 Thomas Catron sold some of the grant to the Denver and Rio Grande Railway for the construction of their San Juan line and a service center at Chama. By 1883 Catron had consolidated the deeds he held for the whole of the grant sans the original villages and their associated fields. In 1950, the descendants of the original grant holder’s court petitions to reclaim communal land were rebuked.

In 1866 the United States Army established Camp Plummer just south of Los Ojos (established in 1860) to rein in already decreased Native American activity on the grant. The military encampment was deserted in 1869. Las Nutrias, the site of the contemporary community, was founded nearby c.1862. The first post office in Las Nutrias was established in 1866 and bore the name Tierra Amarilla, as did the present one which was established in 1870 after an approximately two-year absence. In 1877 a U knuckle meat tenderizer.S. Army lieutenant described the village as “the center of the Mexican population of northwestern New Mexico”. The territorial legislature located Rio Arriba’s county seat in Las Nutrias and renamed the village in 1880. The Denver and Rio Grande Railway’s 1881 arrival at Chama, about ten miles to the north, had profound effects on the development of the region by bringing the area out of economic and cultural isolation.

When Tierra Amarilla was designated as the county seat the villagers set about building a courthouse. This structure was demolished to make way for the present one, which was built in 1917 and gained notoriety fifty years later when it was the location of a gunfight between land rights activists and authorities. The neoclassical design by Isaac Rapp is now on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Alianza Federal de Mercedes, led by Reies Tijerina Fashion Jewelry for Women, raided the Rio Arriba County Courthouse in 1967. Attempting to make a citizen’s arrest of the district attorney “to bring attention to the unscrupulous means by which government and Anglo settlers had usurped Hispanic land grant properties”, an armed struggle in the courthouse ensued resulting in Tijerina and his group fleeing to the south with two prisoners as hostages. Eulogio Salazar, a prison guard, was shot and Daniel Rivera, a sheriff’s deputy, was badly injured. The National Guard, FBI and New Mexico State Police successfully pursued Tijerina, who was sentenced to less than three years.

The Brazos Cliffs are a prominent nearby landmark and attraction. Also nearby are the artificial Heron Lake and El Vado Lake. Tierra Amarillas’ Elevation is 7,524 feet above sea level.

The settlement is situated in a cluster of villages along United States Route 84 and the Chama River. The layout of the villages, including the one that became Tierra Amarilla, do not follow the urban planning principles of the Laws of the Indies.

Tierra Amarilla has the ZIP code of 87575. The ZIP Code Tabulation Area for ZIP Code 87575 had a population of 750 at the 2000 census.
