My romantic days in the beginning were very rocky relationships were short for the most part. What it took me a long time to discover was I was too serious too soon in my romantic adventures. When I ran off to Greenwich Village New York City and became active in the music and the art scene that finally all changed. No, I still resembled a brooding artist too often but in an artistic world that was tolerated if not expected.
This song “Evermore” is really a fantasy; definitely a fantasy for me at least.
Summer; summertime when we were young; so many memories; mostly care free. First romances. Friends. Exciting times. For me The Jersey Shore, New York’s Greenwich Village were significant. Running away from home immersed in an artistic time I call my “Paris Experience”; love and lovers; great opportunities lost and gained. All this before realities: Army, danger in decadence, vulnerabilities . . .
The hottest time of year evokes memories of tropical nights along the Mediterranean Sea on the Costa Brava in Spain.; so romantic so magical. Looking down from a cliff top cafe sipping gin and coke with good friends and a lover. Could be there or Baja California, Hawaii or an island in the Caribbean.
This is a song that has morphed through the years: from one guitar and a simple vocal I sang in New York City (Greenwich Village) to this more elaborate version . . . still it is a simple love song at heart. “My Loves Face”.
