currently, I’m rereading Jane Eyre (Charlotte Bronte)—-telling you right now that I won’t be underlining titles–and Easy to Remember (William Zinsser)—a g-r-e-at book about old composers, lyricists, and How to Talk about Books You Haven’t Read (Pierre Bayard).
I have just about forgotten everything about Jane Eyre, so it’s like reading a new book—
Easy to Remember is a wonderful book, especially if you love the graphics of old sheet music, and have a whole list of old songs ready in your head. A favorite line points out that who in the world would have thought of jumping an octave to start off a song, as was done in Over the Rainbow . . .
and musing about which is more important–music or lyrics?
all for now—lots of company in the house—have to think about dinner—shrimp, sausage and brown rice . . .yea!
