Have you ever felt connected to something, and it feels strange; because you don't understand why these feelings are so strong?
That I how I felt about a Janis Ian song. Many years ago during the 70's, I came across an album in a record store. I did not know this artist then. I had no clue what her voice sounded like, but when I saw her face I was frozen in my spot by her eyes. I felt as if I were looking into my own soul. I immediately bought the album and returned to my home. I fell in love with it and Janis on that day.
I felt a special connection to the last song, "Lover's Lullaby." You know what it is like to feel a strong connection to something? It feels as if by some miracle it was written just for you. That is how I felt about this song. I wanted to be an artist, the magician. I wanted to save the world. I was young and handsome then, but I knew that would not last. Yes, they drank all my glory, and they borrowed all my time. Yes, I still feel connected to this song. Does that mean I am crazy, delusional, or just plain nuts. Maybe it is because I am a dreamer. I have always been a dreamer.
