Seeing as Tara from ThinSpiralNotebook chose this week's song and it was one of my faves, I couldn't resist. The song is "And She Was" by Talking Heads. Now there's a little story about this song and me. A few months ago I was interviewed by glipho.com. It's a blogging platform where I post my Life and Music blogs in addition to my own site. One of the questions they asked was to choose 3-5 songs which define me. One of the songs I chose was "Brave and Crazy" by Melissa Etheridge for obvious reasons. One was Dobie Gray's "Drift Away," and the third was "And She Was." The reason being sometimes in observing people and life in general, I feel like I'm both in the world and above it, looking in.
With that in mind, I decided not to come up with a story per se this week, but rather use the title to tell my story. This being it: I wrote a lot when I was young, then took off about 30 years, then started writing again. Just lately, I began a new career in the music business... writing. About music.YES. Happy ending indeed.
So in exactly 100 words, here's my story.
And she was hooked as long as she remembered.
And she was one with the melody.
And she was inspired by the words.
And she was often moved to tears.
And she was wordless for an eternity.
And she was joyful when her voice was heard.
And she was watching from a distance.
And she was telling all she saw.
And she was learning more each day.
And she was reaching hearts and souls.
And she was offered her dream if she only dared.
And she was ready to take a leap.
And she was able.
And she is fulfilled.
