"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."
Hilary Mantel

Musical Monday

Best laid plans...I chose a video (weeks ago) and it was next up in the queue. The quintessential, hiliariously and obviously 80's vintage video of a bitchin' song which I shall not now mention. Because somebody else got there before I did.

So, in order to avoid the appearance of copycat-ism (when in fact it's a case of Great Minds Thinking Alike), I've moved along the queue and made a different selection.

The late, great Warren Zevon performing Splendid Isolation live, with David Sanborn and more. After last week, I'm having a day of splendid isolation and enjoying it immensely.

I'm not as jaded and cynical and selfish as this song's narrator, however. Not yet, that is!
