Love works best in a waltz-time song

One of my fave songs ever is "Catch The Wind" by Donovan, and one of my fave covers ever of this song is the one below, recorded live in Bora Bora by Shawn Colvin, accompanied by a breeze and a few seagulls.

When I listen to this song, I want to write the movie it ought to be a part of.

When sundown pales the sky,
I wanna hide a while, behind your smile,
And everywhere I'd look, your eyes I'd find.

Did I mention that I just happen to be going on the Cayamo singer/songwriter cruise in the Caribbean in four weeks time, and that Shawn Colvin will be on the boat? Did I mention that? Huh? Huh?

Happy new year, big fella.

"Big fella?" I thought Brett was a girl.

Write the movie, lad.

I normally make mixed CDs of songs for the soundtrack before I start writing the script.

How's that for cart before the horse?

That's the one with Lyle Lovett and Emmylou Harris, C? Cool.
