You May Say She's a Dreamer

She-Twin has always had a thing for music.

When polled by their teacher, her third grade classmates professed a preference for hip-hop and pop. Never a follower, Sarah publicly and unabashedly declared her continued commitment to classic rock---which she readily differentiates from 'plain rock'. [Longtime readers may remember her five-year-old affinity for Roger Daltrey. My maternal heart still breaks a bit remembering the homemade Valentine sent to his publicist that received no response...]

Some months ago, upon a a radio play of John Lennon's Imagine in the car, Sarah shamed us all into silence with a conversation condemning, "Be quiet! This is an important song."

How thrilling to discover the upright piano upon which Mr. Lennon composed the iconic piece while touring the MIM in Phoenix over the holidays.

Hope one day you can join us...and the world will live as one.
