Finding tunes that fit

Updated: Jul 8, 2018

Tunes can say what we can't speak.

"No one is alone" from Sondheim's Into the Woods. It utterly destroys me

“People make mistakes. Fathers, brothers, terrible mistakes, holding to their own, thinking they're alone.”

I played this song for my mom before she got on the plane back to Ohio. She would not heal from her childhood wounds, and I had no idea of their existence until this visit. My therapist deftly pushed back down all that my mother blurted out about what had happened to her as a girl. She would not, could not, remember again such ugly things

Pavane for a Dead Princess didn't fit like I thought it would

Be original, show off your style, and tell your story.”

Yeah, so what does this mean, anyway?
