“Precious And Few”
A sweet love song from my youth said, “And if I can’t find my way back home, it just wouldn’t be fair, ‘cause precious and few are the moments we two can share.” I marvel even fifty plus years later how full my head and my heart are of the lyrics of so many love songs that I listened to as a boy. Had I been born two centuries previous it would have been the romance poets and playwrights that scripted my adventures in loving. Love songs and romance novels have long had been in demand and many a would be poor poet or singer has made a more than adequate living writing and singing love songs.
In another life I might have been a traveling troubadour. Hey, even in this one of my goals is still to write poetry and songs that move and entertain. For sometime now in this seven year plus running daily blog, the encouraging word, I have linked a karaoke style song at the end of most blogs. Many professing more high brow tastes consider blogging and karaoke both lame and tasteless. In my defense I only remind that opera, plays, and most renowned art forms were born and flourished first among the poor and lowly of this world. And I might add so have the most delicious and sought after dishes served in the fine restaurants.
There is a hunger in all for words, songs, art, and great food that moves the heart and refreshes the mind. And so I faithfully attempt to add my words, my rhymes, and my voice to the mix hoping to entertain, enlighten, and encourage others as I have been myself over this three score and ten plus years journey.
