Paulette’s Musings — a new poem for you, Don’t Lose Me..

Don’t Lose Me…

Hey beautiful friend!

Today’s poetic rambling was inspired by my high school friend, Jeanne, who I just got reacquainted with after 45 years, (holy hell!) when I was taking care of my mom in Ohio this summer.

It was so great to gather with her again, and find out how our paths have differed and stayed similar too. And what was super fun was that we both have been playing music all these years, so we got together and jammed with some of my other friends and family members, and even my 97-year-old mama!

Super fabulous…Her and her man have been gigging around that town and we also went to see them play live several times, they are sooooo good, and what a voice she has and what a guitar player he is… (O’Neill and Martin)

And when I left Ohio, I told her not to lose me. I did not want to lose this long time friend, after a beautiful reconnection. And I started writing about that, but it also became about not losing myself.
