“[sob] Hello [sob]”

“It’s [sob] so beautiful [sob].”
“Your poem. I don’t know how you do it.”
We busied ourselves with dinner preparation, and eventually, with a hint of trepidation, Serena broached the subject of her song. She was a little annoyed with me. Did I really like it? Did she really want to know?
In that moment, she’ll know not only that she did it but how she did it. And getting a phone call like that one might even be why she keeps doing it throughout her spectacular life.
We all need mothers like you.
Give Up The Ghost….Whoa! And I'm not telling a horse to stop.
You're fine, Ma, but I adore her songs. What a talent – guitar, lyrics, voice. Wow.
"Aftermath" was my favorite of all 3 songs, though I would listen to all three, any day , any where. I prefer a long song over a 3 minute pop song any day of the week. Thank you for sharing.
@Tracy It obviously makes a difference now that I know what the song is about (and now that you do, I'm sure it reinforces your preference for the music). But when all of your songs start out as seven-minute jam sessions, you have to make cuts somewhere. Until you're famous. Then you can do whatever the fuck you want and get paid for it.
@Richard Gilbert I am BETTER than fine. 😀 But I agree. nice to get an early start.
Yep – she picked the right mom to nurture her as an artist!
