Look what they've done . . .
As I reflected on the week (yeah, it's been one of those weeks - lol), Melanie Safka came to mind. I haven't thought about her in ages. Through the miracle commonly known as the internet, I was able to connect with her and the past.
I found a relatively recent quote by her, "For the first time, I'm not afraid to voice exactly what I feel. I used to feel that I didn't want to say too much, but now I can say anything. I feel like a person who's never been heard. Maybe people think they've heard me, but they never really have. I'm a new artist who is having so much fun with my voice -- a person shouldn't be allowed to have so much fun. I'm the woman I wanted to be when I was sixteen and going for Edith Piaf. It's me -- I'm back."
Yes, Melanie. Me too!
