Piano notes
Like black
Long winged
Drifting fire flies
Touched my soul
With finger taps."
~Excerpt from “Second Row Seat” by Roger Singer

Inspired by dreams within dreams last night. I awoke in my dream hearing the Song Piano Man playing, I was young again! The room was filled with flowers. Oh what a wonderful dream! I kicked off my shoes and was singing to a small furry cat about old papers and love letters! When the lights dimmed in the dream, I found myself on the stage at a local, now abandoned Jazz Club, filled with debris and yuck, looking for a window to escape from! Yet in my dream when I realized I was dreaming in the dream, I found myself in a mansion along side a gilded piano! Go figure where the mind takes us when we sleep, or try to! Alas I truly awoke this morning to the Cardinals singing at my window and the dogs dancing for joy to go out!

love like you’ve never been hurt,
dance like nobody’s watching,
and live like its heaven on earth.”
