Today, in 1951, one of my favorite musicians was born into this world.
I identified with Dan’s music; he reached the sorrows of a girl who never really found her place in this world…..maybe she still hasn’t.
His song, “Scarecrow’s Dream” is my anthem…….
“Between the worlds of men and make believe, I can be found”
Some think the gifts I bring to this world are make believe; I frighten some like a scarecrow in the cornfield.
But worlds and planes and dimensions unite; they intertwine, overlap, visit upon each other. The worlds of men are more intricate than most realize. And the world of make believe can light sparks of wonder, creativity, and compassion in children. That was my vision in writing “You’re Never Too Old for Fairy Tales,” to bring that world into the minds and hearts of children and the young at heart adults who read my stories.
As long as I breathe mortal breath, Dan and his music will be music for my heart. And one day, I hope to thank him personally for all his music has given to me and my heart.
Birthday Blessings Daniel Grayling Fogelberg, from a very thankful scarecrow.
