of the month #4....
plus my thoughts on dreams (not the sleeping kind)
many nights my work is just a job like any other, i won't lie. but
then there are the other kind of nights..... the nights that i wish
i could beam back to my younger self. to the girl who spent long
summers dreaming, guitar in hand and with all her heart. the strongest
dreams, i believe, begin in our youth. but they come true throughout
our lives. when they do, we can't linger on their summit. when a
dream finally comes true, it also dies a little. like a shooting
star that only you saw, so brilliant and so mortal. truly beautiful
things don't last. but they come back around...
i was 17 i was lost. things were strange at home. things were strange
at school. having grown up in germany, i was now going to high school
in greenville, delaware. i couldn't make sense of the kids at school.
their behaviors seemed impossible to decode. in germany i was normal.
i knew what i was doing. now i didn't. i longed for my language
and my culture and my friends from before. things were strange at
home, too. so i lived in between. in the space between home and
school. i walked and i walked around the suburbs. my discman taking
me far away. i listened to the music of john gorka. i can't say
i understood the lyrics, really, but i understood the voice. his
warm baritone wrapped itself around me like a shield. i'm not sure
how i would have made it through those years without that shield.
fast forward 20 years. i am on tour with john gorka, the man. he
is just a man. it is just a gig. he does what i do for a living
and i know - as i am an insider - that there is no real magic there.
i know all this but my heart says otherwise.
have come full-circle. the music is still here. after all these
years. and it moves me deeply still because it is intertwined with
my own past and the
Gorka's Mother's Day Concert (with Antje Duvekot).
May 13, 2012 in Bethlehem, PA
of my dream. john gorka has come full circle too. we are playing
at Godfrey Daniels, Gorka's stomping ground. the place where he
cut his teeth. where he had his heroes. and so it goes. i am not
sure any of us would be doing what we do if it weren't for our heroes
and the gifts they gave us. this is my "full circle moment" but
it is not that of the crowd and so i aim to conceal the monumental
weight this event holds in my heart, but on the inside me, old me,
present me, myself and i are beaming... maybe you can spot it on
our face :) .
