A Thought for Today
I'm in a hurry, I have no time to hate. But I have all the hours in the seasons left to me to give to love.
Would you be interested in publishing the words of a song that Rod printed in a book of his ballads?
The one I felt touched by was "i'm not afraid" (no capitals, and I believe that was Rod's style in the late '60's and early '70's as he sent me a Christmas card with his name in small letters).
The book is called, "New Ballads", printed in 1970.
Great choice, Jane - thank
I always remember Rod
commenting some time ago how much he loved opening the second half of his
concerts with this Brel collaboration. True to form, this is exactly
what he did at Thousand Oaks and Aurora earlier this month.
One interesting point - both
the book and the album were dedicated to the patron saint of dogs. I just
wish I knew who this is - drop me a line if you know.
If you have a
favorite McKuen song or poem you'd like to share with us one Wednesday
drop me a line at email@example.com and
I'll do the rest.
I really liked John Frazar's
suggestion yesterday that we implement a McKuen Mailing List - so let's do
it! Signing up
is pretty simple - just click on the link below for instructions.
