Song Soliloquy

It's not that I don't like the concept of scrap-booking. It's more the idea of feeling constrained by glue and pictures and captions. So I've been trying to tie song lyrics to those moments in the past that demand memorable status. Because although I like to believe I can recall tantalizing snippets and life-altering tidbits on the fly, the reality is that sadly, I can't. Instead of tedious journal entries or the albatross that is my camera -- or lack of owning one -- I've made a snapshot list of lyrics that carry me backwards on days that call for reflection:

  • jambalay, crawfish pie, file gumbo
  • you could have heard a pin drop, when tommy stopped, and locked the door
  • good-bye san francisco, hello amsterdam
  • losing hope is easy
  • i found a bunch of letters that were written for the fellow who broke your mama's heart
