“Those we love never truly leave us, Charles. There are things that death cannot touch.” ― Jack Thorne
Karen and I both loved Neil Diamond from his very beginnings. We went to see him in concert at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles when he recorded his famous "Hot August Night" program back in the '70's. My favorite was "I Am . . . I Said" and Karen's was "Sweet Caroline." We had vinyl, eight tracks, cassettes, and cd's of his singing and followed his career. Not too long ago, he came out with a new song called "Little Bit of Something Blue" which really summed up my feelings for Karen and our life together. I told her that he was singing my words. She told me, he was instead singing hers. Maybe he's also singing yours. Click on the link below and you will see him as a much older man singing what I still claim are my words to my beloved (our matching wedding rings had the verse "I am my beloved's and she is mine" in Hebrew).
