There's a lyric in Going Nowhere by Oasis that says:
I'm gonna be a millionaire
so can you take me there
wanna be wild
cause my life's so tame
When I was 16 and hearing these songs, I would daydream about an unknown date when I would be performing them, or something of my own of a similar power. Now however, it is a privilege just to know that these songs exist.
In "Amadeus," Salieri describes an early work by Mozart as being "filled with such longing, such unfulfillable longing."
The book that I'm currently starting to write begins with a scene that is largely based on memory, but almost everything about the memory I find indescribable. The 2 solutions I can think of are to either be deliberately unfathomable, as in 'la filia che piange' by TS Eliot; or to be minimalistic about what one chooses to describe.
I'll attempt both, and let time sort out which is better.
