As promised a few days ago, something special from Gordon Lightfoot. This song got very little air-play, at least in my neck of the woods for one short, and suggestive bit of lyric.
Music marks itself in our minds—and helps to form our writing skills—when a melody or a lyric insinuates itself into our lives. The concept of “our song”, or that bit of music from our past that causes the breath to catch, the heart to “skip a beat” comes from an adjoining of emotion and intellect at just the right moment.
Approaching Lavender is just such a song for me. It brings back sweet memories of youth, of wonder, and of high emotion.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
