This tune made a lasting impression


“When we die, we will turn into songs, and we will hear each other and remember each other.” ― Rob Sheffield, Love Is a Mix Tape

My father passed away when I was almost 10 years old. He died in July. It was a depressingly lonely time for me. During the warm summer nights I would climb a ladder and station myself on the slanted roof of our house, watch the stars, tune the radio to a Detroit Tiger baseball game and listen to all the great tunes coming out of Motown. Sometimes I would grab a telescope and watch the twinkling stars up close and personal. These are moments to remember and enjoy. — gc
