I was lacking inspiration today. What, I pondered, should be the subject of my next blog post. I have not been out with the camera today. Grey skies, heavy rain and a call to join a shopping expedition had precluded my preferred means of ticking off another day on the calendar of life. Fortunately there were plenty of good contributions from others to entertain me. They included posts by Gerard Oosterman, Rough Seas in the Med, and the Empress herself, Lottie Nevin.
Comments had been proffered, some modest chores completed and all the while in the background my new-found friend, Spotify, was playing in the background. A constant stream of Allman Brothers music. Quite took me back, it did. Oh to be 18 again and listening to their music in the common room. The album finished and I mulled over what my next choice of music should be. My mind was blank.
I would like to explore. True, I can play the Spotify ‘radio stations’ and do it that way. The alternative was to invite suggestions from readers as to what might entertain your bird-brained blogger. For the avoidance of doubt there does not have to be an avian theme. The Birdy Song is off limits. So is Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep. The Eagles might make the cut. So might Mockingbird. Poisoning Pigeons in the Park would be in the worst possible taste. To illustrate how broad my taste in music is my collection runs from Tallis to T. Rex and from Schubert to Suzanne Vega.
Spotify is currently playing Bob Dylan at me. Not a good idea. Has that given you some guidance? This is to be, please remember, a journey of discovery and exploration. What has passed me by, do you think, other than the last 25 years?
In conclusion, I can assure all my readers, that whatever happens, in the words of Dusty herself, I only want to be with you.
Yours in anticipation…………
