I Wish I Knew How




One of the refrains of my life's soundtracks... the legend that is Nina Simone, the song that says it best for so much of our sorrow and joy. "Jonathan Livingston Seagull ain't got nothin' on me"... When Nina was asked what freedom meant to her, she said "No fear. If I could feel no fear for even half my life, wouldn't that be something?" That's what freedom means to me too. No fear. Wouldn't that be something?

Nina has been and will continue to be a part of my life. Her music was and still is raw and uncompromising. Many thanks.

Greetings from London.

Whoa wasn't ready for this rendition. Nina's gone off on a bit of a crazy one in this version ;)

i write about being free from fear a lot. it's a huge thing for me. starting with my childhood abuse, and then my disease, and surgeries, and pain, pain, pain, and then the worst- anxiety over my children....it is a focus of my life, to let go of fear.
