Kathy's Song, Paul Simon
And as a song I was writing is left undone
I don't know why I spend my time
Writing songs I can't believe
With words that tear and strain to rhyme

Kathy's Song, Paul Simon
Interview with Lynn
LM: Hi Lynn, can you tell us couple things about you?
Lynn: i work at a library... which is a dream job for me. i'm able to help people, and learn from them... in an atmosphere of acceptance, and kindness. i'm a poet who doesn't rhyme, still in search of herself.
LM: What makes you love this song and lyrics so much? Or you have a story about the song?
Lynn: it's a nice, mellow song... talking about someone who's away from their love, and wishing they were close by, to cherish small moments to-gether. that's a common theme in my work. paul simon does it much better, of course. :) the lyrics also delve into the frustrations writers have... so it's a song about doubt, and longing, and realization, which are the feelings i identify with a lot.
LM:What you think is the perfect moment to listen to this song?
Lynn: i like listening to this song when i have writer's block. it comforts me to know that someone as talented as paul simon had trouble with his writing, as well. when i can't put words to paper, it can be the loneliest time in the world... especially when i need to work some feelings out of me....
LM:Which genres of music you like the most?
Lynn: all kinds. i know that seems like a standard answer, but i find myself hearing music i never thought of trying, either through recommendations from friends, or suggestions i see on google plus. i listen to classic rock, new stuff, some rap, some country, old show tunes, crooners.... a lot of different music.
LM:Which songs are playing in your current iPod playlist?
Lynn: my playlist artists are very confused. bing crosby will come on to sing "be careful, it's my heart" and will be suddenly shoved aside so that janis joplin can have a turn with "summertime." then fun will come on with "some days" and blow my ears away. i don't mind. i like learning from all music.
LM:Random question: God created the world in 7 days, what he created on the 8th?
Lynn: i'd like to think He created the quality in us to create.... so we can make things, and learn about ourselves along the way...
LM:Where can we read your poetry work?
Lynn: i have a poetry blog.... words that tear and strain to rhyme. it's at http://jamison.mysticmorph.net/
LM:Thank you Lynn
