Dan Fogelberg, RIP

Whenever things in Pretty Lady's life have looked Black, black, black, during the last twenty years, she has been wont to play Dan Fogelberg's 1981 album 'The Innocent Age,' at top volume, and sing along. Halfway through the second song, everything is Fine.

Thank you, Dan. Well done.

Capture the moment
Carry the day
Stay with the chase as long as you may
Follow the dreamer, the fool and the sage
Back to the days of the innocent age

Storybook endings
Never appear, they're
Just someone's way of leading us here
Waiting for wisdom to open the cage
We forged in the fires of the innocent age

La la la la la la la la la...

Back in the day, I was all about those deep thundering currents of feeling, and Dan Fogelberg played on the soundtrack of my life.

I've noted a couple of my favorites here.
