“Tramps like us were born to survive . . .” (posted by HAYESSPENCER)
Today, I’d like you to write about singing along with your music and driving. Off on a trip, off on vacation, soothing yourself and just driving at night, driving out your anger or your grief, shared a few songs with a friend?
I don’t drive, but . . .
“Born To Be Wild”, though not often heard, is a button-push memory for me. Used in the film, Easy Rider, it was a freedom song sang by Steppenwolf. When I hear
that song, I am in my 20’s on back of a boyfriend’s motorcycle, wind lifting my hair, sun warm on my skin. There was nothing I could not do, and I would have
forever to do it in. Short lived romance, long remembered tune.

on maple tree in summer
