Out in the rain…

It is funny how a song can conjure up an image… or a memory.  Pretty strongly, really.

Donna Summer passed away today.  I don’t know that much about her as a person.  She died of cancer and she was only 62 years old.  I hope her family and friends can find peace.

But a few of the songs she made, sure do hold a lot of memories for me.  Big recollections.  College especially…  and some there after.

There is something you should know about me.  It seems that I crack myself up sometimes.  I don’t mean to do it.  But… it just happens.  So this song…. is really something… I’ll tell you.

I would sing this at the top of my lungs.  And then laugh and laugh.

“Someone left the cake out in the rain
I don’t think that I can take it
’cause it took so long to bake it
And I’ll never have that recipe again
Oh, no!”

And there you have it.

I guess… ..

If you can’t be the poet… be the poem.
