This blog is about love - of music. How it was lost and how I found it again and who helped along the way. I've never posted any of these thoughts over the past 10+ years for fear of how silly they would look in public or that someone, somewhere would find a way to use them against me and make my life miserable. Again. (More on that in a future post.)
But since my name isn't on this (HA! Gotcha!) I guess it's OK.
When friends are hard to find
And life seems so unkind
Sometimes you feel afraid
Just aim beyond the clouds
And rise above the crowd
And start your own parade
Bear with me and I'll get to the point soon enough. Just to warn you there is a TON of stuff about music by Barry Manilow in this little diary. If you're not a fan, you won't get it. If you are, then you might get it a little too well! What's great is you can reinterpret and reapply lyrics and intentions however you want and bring an entire new life to words and music he wrote years ago.
Good night, my new friends. Be gentle with me. This is the first time I have enjoyed writing in more than ten years - I'm still afraid.
