I believe Night Moves was by Bob Seger. I looked it up and then listened to the song, full blast. The reason I was so sure was because the summer that song came out, was the last one I had the privilege of enjoying with my first great love Albert, who died in a motor cycle accident. I was with him that beautiful October night. I held him as he breathed his last breath. His gift to me, at the age of 20, was to live with passion and enthusiasm, to never take for granted that we will have plenty of time “later on”. I’m so glad you are living your dream, Bill. It’s why we are here - to live what we feel is the greatest expression of who we are. Because of Albert, because I know death comes unannounced, I have lived deeply, relishing all the small moments that make for a rich, meaningful life.
Is this the post where you're imitating my narration style?!
I just re-read the quotations I sent you from Rabbit, Run. Very relevant to your journey. Can't believe you're on a street with that name.
Obviously John Mellencamp made me think of Frannie.
You're can be such a funny writer. I laughed out loud a couple times reading this :)
