Is this a dream?
Am I here?
Where are you?
What’s in back of the sky?
Why do we cry?
— from Valley of the Dolls, Dionne Warwick
This song reflects my mood this afternoon . . . I saw the movie in the theatre so many moons ago, and it struck a chord in me. The song still does, all these years later.
Some songs speak for our moods, yes?
Fear not: tomorrow’s song will be The Boxer by Simon and Garfunkel, as in “The fighter still remains.”
