Reconnecting.....tonight, we had dinner with our friends Marty and Carol from Nashville. It had been seven
years since we had seen them, actually the last time was their wedding. But you know, our friendship is so easy,
it was just like we had seen them yesterday.
Marty is one of our co-writers, Rick and I wrote The Night A Country Star Was Born with him......and the song went to # 1 in Europe. Co-writing is an unusual relationship......it is close and personal, there has to be some sort of connection, some common thread that weaves the writers together. It can be so much fun and it can be a real downer, just like any relationship, there has to be some magic there.
After dinner, we all went to an open mike session and saw several other friends we had not seen in some time.
Reconnecting, without effort, just picking up where you left off.......I think that is symbolic of a strong and lasting relationship of any kind. So tonight.....it was just like old times.....good food, laughter, and lots of music. Just what I needed......Good night, Sweet dreams.
