The Beat of the Blues

 

This one comes from way back.  I had the music for it and the first 2 lines just seemed to attach to it.  It took me a long time to come up with an idea for how to develop it.  I think once I read The White Hotel by D.M. Thomas,  I started wondering why such a tragic story could be something I would even want to read.  In fact, how could it be something that energized me?  I guess I was meditating on the cathartic quality and the common experience of tragedy.   I saw a glowing sign downtown – “Happy Hour”.  That found its way into the song too.
