Aerosmith - Dream On Official Music Video

I remember we were driving down Brookside Avenue..It was Summer and the air was heavy and filled with the smell of honeysuckle..and death.

Mom looked over and said there was animal laying on the vines..A doe. And I got a lump in my throat ..

She said there was no worse smell than the sticky sweetness of honeysuckle and death.

Dream on by Aerosmith was on the radio. I looked at Mom and the sun was shinning brightly on her red hair..Actually it was more of a deep auburn and it looked like a shiny penny.

I had been reading a book of poetry by Sylvia Plath but I sat it on my knee..

I began to think many things. I thought about the lyrics of the song playing

"Every time that I look in the mirror all these lines on my getting clearer." And I suddenly felt quite sad.

Why was there death? Why was there so much sadness in our lives that we just couldn't seem to escape from?

And I thought about good things like Community Beach..It was a little haven for my brother, sisters and I.

An old black man ran it. His weathered face would light up as soon as he saw the kids walking to the beach. His wrinkled hands and kind eyes were what I remembered most.

The little beach was full of happy kids, or maybe they were sad like us, who was just happy there.

I love beauty, whether it is in nature, literature or art. And I love music... My day feels incomplete if I haven't had a chance to listen to some good music.. I also love beautiful souls, and kind hearts.
