LYRIC MAN-CHAPTER 1

Once upon a time there was a creative young man who had two passions. An incredible love to write lyrics and an insatiable desire to travel the world. This boy was positively relentless in chasing his dreams and by the age of 35 he had been to over 70 countries and was a ghost writer and coach for many well known singers and bands. Along the way, he met and eventually married his dream girl. She could listen to him play his guitar and sing all day long. It seemed that he wrote her a new song each morning before she awoke, although the reality was this happened just a few times a week. This amazing girl was quite gifted herself, but was a deeply private person. One of her great attractions to this boy is he took not pleasure in fame. He was quite happy to write behind the scenes. The boy was always more interested in exploring the world and meeting new people. He found their stories inspiring and often developed lyrics based off of their life experiences. In time, he became so proficient at this that he could, in a matter of minutes, write a lyric about anyone or any situation. He often joked that such experiences kept him in shape for the real work that supplied the funds to keep him mobile.

~Lyric Man

Note: My Muse surprised me this morning with a new direction. We rarely argue, but we did today. This wasn't something I really wanted to do but she was insistent. So here we go. A series of short stories without lyric or rhyme. Together we will have to see where she takes us!

Thank you for listening, then speaking, for silence toward fame and blame and shame, and songs of lively love absorbing evil. For heterosexuality that is not fear of homosexuality. For eros strength flown lyrical agape. For curiosity born of fathomed longing within integrity.

The honesty of this made me sit up and pay attention. Well done, Lyric Man. I feel your soul shining through in this one. PS Arguing with your muse is silly. She always wins!
