Jimmy Chang (a short story)

Jimmy Chang (by Uncle Jamie MacBlues)

I was on my way outa Harlan, pretty much at a loose end.I had thought to spend some time with my buddy, Uncle John, but just as I was walking up his driveway, a neighbour sitting on his porch told me that John was not home:

"He's away getting singing lesson, he wont be back for three days" he mumbled (having heard John sing, I was thinking three MONTHS per lesson would be preferable!)

Anyhoo, as I said above, I was on my way…

"There is joy in the sound, of this world spinnin' 'round
And the songbird he laughs, at a secret not found
We are given this free , no contract or fee
But the simplest of gifts can be hardest to see
And as one candle shines in the darkest night
Reaching out to each soul
There's the highway, now home's in sight..."

-- Jamie McBlues, lyrics written for Sunday Drive With Katy

Thank you, Jamie, for your candle always shining. You will be missed.
