Not Like the Movies...

When I was going through a hard time, I called my magical friend Sandy Bell, one of the most beautiful and talented people I have been privileged to know in my life. I was sad and confused and she said, "It's not like the movies, babe", and I felt a song come in. Over many months I worked on this piece, gathering in some of the flavor of the music my mother loved most, opera. While it is far from opera and more akin to musicals, I could have never made the leap without my mother's presence encouraging me. As I wrote, I sensed she was opening a door for me to pursue this kind of theatrical songwriting. I owe a great debt to Stephen Sondheim - my parents took me to see a production of "A Little Night Music" when I was ten or so and it haunts me to this day. Thanks to Greta and Adam for their stupendous arrangement and the work of all the choristers and instrumentalists.

    This has been somewhat different from the moves. All the directors of the show ND [url=https://aussiessayservices.com/ozessay-com-au-review/]ozessay[/url] have been inducted for the use of the tools and all possible items for the help of the musicians in life.
