His Art


He walked out on stage. There it was! The flash of the spotlight as it hit him; the thunder of applause!

Oh my God...THE RUSH... Fear. Joy. Panic. Mind-blowing-exhilaration.

These were his people. This was his moment. No matter how many times he did this, he always poured every ounce of himself into this - his art. His gift to the world.

"Met her on a Monday, and my heart stood still.
Da-do-ron-ron-ron. Da-do-ron-ron."

  1. That made me laugh -- I love how solemn it is up until the last line, when suddenly it's doo-wop.

    Not that I don't like doo-wop. It's good stuff!

    1. Cool. Yea. It's supposed to be funny. He's all serious and then he starts singing this ridiculous song!
