Be here with me a moment - I only get creative about 3 days a month and then it passes. So:

Picture it - it was storming like crazy on my drive home from work. I love a good storm, so I'm thrilled. And I see lightning and Revival comes to mind, of course. And then on my Neil Diamond CD, Brother Love's Travellin' Salvation Show begins to play. And I can picture the scene in my mind. Not really for a movie, but how about a Broadway production of Revival - it would translate much better that way, I think. And this would be such a great scene for
when Jamie comes across the reverend all those years later and sees what he's up to
.

I wish I could show you inside my head, Matrix-like, so you could see it.
Take my hand in your's, walk with me this day....


Great idea, huh?

Also, I've always wanted to write a musical based on Barry Manilow songs, like what was done with ABBA songs for Mama Mia.

But at a creative peak of 3 days a month, it'll be a while. When you see this in lights, remember it was my idea first.

I'm crazy, but you knew that already, didn't ya?

....I like me some Barry when I'm in a mellow mood, he has the skill of twisting heart strings down pat...
