About Rosie's Reverie
A Creative Haven
One of my favorite quotes, that I use to define how I do things in my life and the risks I take, is from the musical The Music Man by Meredith Wilson. In it, the male lead--Harold Hill--says to his love interest--Marian Paroo, "You pile up enough tomorrows, and you'll find you are left with nothing but a lot of empty yesterdays. I don't know about you, but I'd like to make today worth remembering." Of course, Hill says that to woo the headstrong librarian, but it's a quote that has stuck with me through the years and become a bit of a mantra for my life.
I don't want to pile up a lot of empty yesterdays.
I say that, mainly in reference to how I've let my drive for a career and chasing the "American Dream," that seems to be nothing more than an "American Nightmare" at this point, overshadow my passion for music, writing, and generally creating content to share with the world. This is my haven to return to my passions and let you in on my daydreams. My hope is that a creative community grows from this and becomes a place where we can share our dreams, share our knowledge and co-create.
