A canvas for splashing my thoughts of the day onto. This could get abstract indeed.
PROMPT July 5th
You’re out with friends for the evening and have ended up at a Karaoke Bar. You’ve all agreed you will sing at least one song. What song will you sing? Why that one?
I don't know why, but when I think karaoke, I think Bonnie Tyler. In fact, karaoke is such a rare and special event, that I would go all out with a Total Eclipse of the Heart... even though I can't sing at all!
Maybe if I really give it my all, I can get a hoarse voice like Bonnie, and the impression can cover up my lack of singing abilities to some extent.
Incidentally, Bonnie and her voice are a perfect example of how when things seem to go wrong in life, it can be a blessing in disguise... Making lemonade from lemons, I guess. Her hoarse voice is the result of her impatience after throat surgery, leading to permanently damaged vocal chords. Sounds like a disaster for an aspiring singer, right? But would Bonnie Tyler really have become such an icon without her characteristic rasp?
Sometimes what seems like a terrible turn in life is actually just a push onto a more unique life path, where there's no telling just how far we'll get, or to what unexpected locations we'll get to go.
You know what, I'd definitely sing one for Bonnie, and put my whole heart in it, even if it's a heartache. Yep, I'll sing Total Eclipse of the Heart faster than the speed of night and straight from the heart. Just don't turn around, okay, 'cause the best is yet to come.
