A glimpse into my everyday life as an Artist. Art, for me, is a very addictive habit that I have.
Music is powerful: it conjures memories, emotions, and people and things of the past. It’s not only a trigger, but an outlet to express who we are. For this challenge, pick one song and write about it — or use it as inspiration for a post. The track may be personally meaningful, or remind you of something, someone, or some event you can look back on. Or maybe you’re drawn to a song’s lyrics and want to use them as a springboard for a short piece of fiction. Or a poem. Or a free-write.
Where do I start with this one?? Well first of all, I am sure you are all aware that this is a song by the great Phil Collins. This takes me right back to my teenage years when I started courting my husband, which now seems a life time ago. We would both spend hours upon hours in his room listening to this great artist and his wondrous words. Now every time I hear this song it peels back a life time of memories… But not just memories of sitting in my then boyfriends room, no it brings back precious memories that we have, as couple, both built over the years.
Our children, our marriage, our heart breaks, our laughter, our tears, and basically the ups and downs of life that we have both stepped through, hand in hand together as one. So maybe this song is saying take a look at us now? I mean we have been together since we were wee teenagers and still going strong… Who knows? But no matter how one feels about this this song, one thing I will always know is its my treasure of a life time of memories…
