Where Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds came from…

Sir Paul Mccartney, Concert

I watched a program where Paul McCartney said that John Lennon’s young son had a girl named Lucy in his classroom.  He drew a picture of her with stars around her head in the sky.  One of the Beatles said, “Hey, that would make a great song title,” and they were right.  That’s how LUCY IN THE SKY WITH DIAMONDS came into being.

A man who is music…

some people
are made of music
lost in the sounds
in the feel of the notes
they are transported
out of their everyday lives
into the dreams
that surround them

SIX LITTLE DUCKS…a song we sang as children…words below.

White Ceramic Bathtub With Gold and White Flowers

six little ducks
that I once knew
fat ones
skinny ones
they were too
but the one little duck
with the feather in the back
he ruled the others
with his

down to the river
they would go
wiggle waggle
wiggle waggle
to and fro
but the one little duck
with the feather in the back
he ruled the others
with his

The Singer…a poem

Free stock photo of artist, band, bass, black-and-white

he stood on the stage
in the smokey room
the words playing tag
in his mind
the audience was still
eyes closed
he started to sing
and the whole world
fell into place
and was alight
