Imagination

by Joe Raposo
Here in the middle of imagination
Right in the middle of my head,
I close my eyes and my room’s not my room,
And my bed isn’t really my bed.
I look inside and discover things,
That are sometimes strange and new,
And the most remarkable thoughts I think,
Have a way of being true.

Here in the middle of imagination
Right in the middle of my mind,
I close my eyes and the night isn’t dark
And the things that I lose, I find.
Time stands still and the night is clear,
And the wind is warm and fair,
And the nicest place is the middle of imagination
When… I’m… there…

Treasure in the Basement!

While getting my laundry tonight, I walked through the basement of my building.

In the back room (which I can only surmise used to be the coal room, because the coal door is still intact on the outside wall and the old coal-burning furnace is still in the adjoining room, even though it isn’t being used anymore. I need to get pictures of it, it’s *really* cool), I found two dusty milk crates full of LPs. I crouched down and took a look, and discovered they were some of my all-time favorite albums.

There were TONS of albums by Elton John: “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road,” “Caribou,” “Don’t Shoot Me, I’m Only The Piano Player,” “Madman Across The Water,” “Greatest Hits,” and many others. There were also a lot of Billy Joel albums, including “52nd Street,” “The Stranger,” “An Innocent Man,” and “Piano Man.” Eagles albums included, “Their Greatest Hits,” “Hotel California,” and “The Long Run.”

Then I found the 12″ singles of Donna Summer and Barbra Streisand’s “Enough is Enough (No More Tears),” The TRIPLE-album soundtrack to “Thank God It’s Friday,” and a double-album called “A Night at Studio 54” with full dance-mixes of CLASSIC disco songs. All originals.

Summary: Whoever owned these has the same musical tastes as me.

And he HAD TO BE GAY!!!!
