“Cause everywhere I seem to be,
I am only passing through. 
I dream these days about the sea,
always wake up,
feeling blue;
wishing I could dream of you.”

Older writing/rewritten 
Throwback Thursday

For him
by me

Bed sheets thrown aside
somewhere beneath your hand shows through
fingers folded inward
holding on so tight
to something I can’t see

I watch with the wonder
of new sight
wishing I knew how to sketch all I see
and not just write it down
they fail sometimes

And I want all of this
to take with me
this moment
this early morning memory
this temporary room
and make it mine

I want to capture the way the sun
casts its shadows over us
while your hand hangs there
holding on
for life
for love
for one extra hour

My keys on the table
the only reminder
reality interrupting
as I lie here with you
and wonder
if this is our last time

I know it should be
but I want so much

Heroes (live) :: David Bowie

I wrote this today, in 2010:

5 Things this song reminds me of:

1. The first time I ever heard this song I fell in love with it. The song stuck with me from that first listen, and when I first started driving I had it on this one mix-tape I remember vividly. I used to play this song while I drove down the Pacific Coast Highway and I would craft a mini-movie in my head. A story grew out of it, one I wish I’d actually gotten around to writing down.

2. My oldest daughter Julia, who has been in love with David Bowie since round about 3rd grade, the year she wrote a report on him. She will be 18 tomorrow and she is still mad for him.

3. Every unrequited or impossible love I’ve ever had in my life.

4. My often naive way of seeing love and believing in it, no matter how much I’ve been hurt by it, and no matter if I’m the one loving more. I still believe that love can change everything for the better…and more than that, I still believe in love.

5. How much music has changed me, influenced me, inspired me, comforted me, challenged me and been such a part of the person I am.
