What is your life’s musical score? What love song would you leave to your partner/husband/wife? What song would you leave to your children?
This was my Tuesday Question and here are your answers! I want to thank all of you who participated in answering yesterday's question.
You did a fantastic job of answering some pretty tough questions. The act of blogging involves many bizarre, funny, wacky, different, entertaining, and sometimes serious personalties, but everybody can relate to music and the words that go with it.
Bob Dylan said, "There is no music without the words" which I think serves as a metaphor for life, because for me there is no music in our lives without our words.
I am amazed at how close I feel toward other bloggers simply by opening up to them with my words.
When getting to know people on the internet, we lack the help of a familiar smile, and the mental telepathy shared in the look on a friend's face.
On the other hand, the art of writing is the most personal form of self-expression and bloggers write everyday, so we may be better friends for it. Writing requires putting yourself out in the open, and taking the risks involved, in much the same way we do with friendship. That is why I wanted to use the words associated with music to get to know all of my new friends better. I hope you found some blogs in my comments that you've never visited before, and if not, learned more about the writers behind the blogs that you know.
The following comments are so expressive and thought provoking you will be moved for sure. They were written by some of the best writers writing blogs out there in the land of blogging. I am lucky to have met such a great group of people, especially so early in my blogging career . Thank- you again for the entertaining days in the sun, and for allowing me to get to know you better! Here are your comments, enjoy,
My very first comment is from my good friend and wonderful poet Jos from NoDirectOn(not:NoDirection)
Dawn left , but she does return later...
Which was too funny, but then again this is Dawn from Twisted Sister Totally Pissed Off!
Here is what Dawn said when she returned:
"Hush my darling, don't fear my darling
The lion sleeps tonight
Hush my darling, don't fear my darling
The lion sleeps tonight"
The song I would leave for my partner...
The Promise by Tracy Chapman
"If you wait for me then Ill come for you
Although Ive traveled far
I always hold a place for you in my heart
If you think of me, if you miss me once in awhile
Then Ill return to you
Ill return and fill that space in your heart
Your warm embrace
Ill find my way back to you
If youll be waiting
If you dream of me like I dream of you
In a place thats warm and dark
In a place where I can feel the beating of your heart"
Isn't that one of the greatest! Thanks again Dawn!

what a beautiful, beautiful question.. I do love music, it gives me strength, gives me joy, gives me energy at times of distress..
I must honestly say I'm almost afraid to answer it, just like your picture seems to indicate. It does get rather personal ;-))..
But here goes..
The story of my life:
Bette Middler's - The Rose:
It's the heart afraid of breaking
that never learns to dance.
It's the dream afraid of waking
that never takes the chance.
It's the one who won't be taken,
who cannot seem to give,
and the soul afraid of dyin'
that never learns to live.
The story I would like to leave my partner:
Bette Middler - Wind Beneath my Wings
Did you ever know that you're my hero,
and everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
for you are the wind beneath my wings.
It might have appeared to go unnoticed,
but I've got it all here in my heart.
I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it.
I would be nothing without you.
After leaving this comment, Ellen from Positive Communication
