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 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 was just like old times.....good food, laughter, and lots of music. Just what I needed......Good night, Sweet dreams.


  1. Those are the best kind of relationships!

    I'm so glad you had a good time.

  2. Just the kind of post I expect to come from you Jilda. I have some friends like that and I believe we would reconnect in the same way after many years. Great post.

  3. What vibrant creative friendships!! Yay for reaching no. 1!! That's brilliant!! Take care

  4. It sounds like THE perfect evening!
    Love Di ♥

  5. Glad you had some fun after all that emotional work from the day before.
