It All Began

DANCE while you can...."I will not stand to the side and allow the MUSIC in
my HEART to fadeaway and die.
I will DANCE to my own LIFE SONG."

"A friend" sings to me

"A friend knows the song in my heart and sings it to me when my memory fails." (anon.)

I had a "me" day yesterday. 9 hours of driving, shopping, eating, shopping, dreaming and music, music, music. 
I somehow thought, in all that "alone" time, I would emerge fulfilled, recharged and with clarity. 

But I must have made a wrong turn because I never found what I was looking for.
I drove for hours and listened to all my favorites. I saw waterways, skyscrapers, beautiful shops, long stretches of green grass and hills with white picket fences(really!). 

I was looking for answers. I'm always looking. But once again my day ended in melancholic songs of loss. Hot wet tears of hurt and anger shed over things I cannot change. Like two people who's lives are lived in concrete that cannot be rearranged. 
Tears of loneliness in a haze of confusion, of counting the cost, of "knowing" and of "longing". I arrived home, my car filled with purchased stuff.
But my day ended the same as everyday. No answers, no way to get from here to him.

"BLACK BIRD" (the beatles)
