Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

It is becoming obvious that I haven’t spent nearly enough time around babies, as I am bereft of suitable lullabies. In my haste, I’ve appropriated some songs from some dubious sources, and sort of adapted some from others, with a special emphasis on lyrics that force me into a Pediatrician-prescribed falsetto.

The Cobalt Season: My Pilgrimage

Led Zep: Babe, I’m Gonna (Feed) You

U2: Mofo

Sarah McLachlan: Ice Cream

GnF’nR: Sweet Child O’ Mine

Ladysmith Black Mambazo and Paul Simon: Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes

    As soon as Lizzy was old enough to talk, she told me to stop singing. Enjoy it while it lasts. :)
