“Give me the beat, boys, to thrill my soul…lemme get lost in your rock and roll… ” And I did. Truth be told, I still am. Even when it be Mozart on a Sunday morning. There were shadows and light in the valley this morning. For a moment, the last four years became yesterday’s box score, my mind was free and easy – “lemme get lost in the rock and roll, and drift away”
Back when I still lived at home, a troubled young teenager, I would hear Drift Away, by Dobie Gray, on the FM radio, over and over again, always new, drifting, deep into the night.. The tune and the lyrics became a photograph of places I had never seen, calling out to me. It is the first song I listen to in my workout mix and it still brings a smile to my heart.
