Book Review: Heart of Darkness

April 12, 2019 Leave a comment
Confession time: this was a self-inflicted homework assigment for my next book, which is set in Congo. My re-read felt like I was experiencing a kinetoscope version of Apocalypse Now, especially with Conrad’s nesting of a narrator within a narrator—which results in some pretty dense prose.  A good tale told much more vividly by Coppola. Unfortunately, it was not much help to me on my novel. So, take my rating with a grain of salt. (3 of 5 Stars)

Steve Azar – Sunshine (Live Acoustic Performance)

April 11, 2019 Leave a comment

Your dark hair draped across my pillow
Says I finally got it right
And as I watch you dreaming, twisted in the sheets
I can’t stop thinking about last night

Well I’ve waited so long, so long, so long
For someone like you
And as this morning breaks through the window pane
It reveals the truth

Baby, you’re my sunshine, first light
Find your way to places that only know lies
Failed tries and bruised skies
With hardly time to hold on or be strong, now I’m strong
‘Cos like the dawn you push it all away

I tell ya, you’re my sunshine
Everybody needs a little sunshine

Your fingertips, a kiss to this tired face
It’s like I’m young again

Well I feel beautiful
But most of all vulnerable since you broke in

Baby, you’re my sunshine, first light
Find your way to places that only know lies
Failed tries and bruised skies
With hardly time to hold on or be strong. now I’m strong
‘Cos like the dawn you push it all away

I tell ya, you’re my sunshine
Everybody needs a little sunshine

So won’t you take me, take me, take me
Anywhere and everywhere you go
All the warmth you bring to this cold heart
With the slightest touch is enough to know

Baby, you’re my sunshine
Everybody needs a little sunshine
Yeah, you’re my sunshine
‘Cos like the dawn you push it all away
