Ah, Laura Nyro! I grew up with her, saw/heard her two times in concert, how fortunate am I!
I came out in the early 70s with her beautiful voice & music in the background of my life. Debi and Margie, two friends & lovers, and our experiments with loving in tiny Oxford, Ohio, home of ‘mother’ Miami U.
From time to time, I rediscover Laura on YouTube. This song, “Serious Playground,” is on her final album, published posthumously.
“My boss is the Muse!” ~ her words of wisdom.
With winter solstice just upon us and the days of dark gradually, imperceptibly becoming light, I vow to take my own muse more seriously — in the playground of words. Poetry is my most beloved playground but this blog means something to me as well. So I plan to visit this blog playground more often.
