FROM THE NOT QUITE A STREET BAND GUIDE TO AMELIA LIVING performed at The Last Book Store in Los Angeles -
But This Is Different came from my imagination. I made up the story and I made up the characters in the story. That the two central characters bear the names of very famous women makes a powerful statement that even cultural icons often went to great lengths to claim and live the love that just now begins to have a name and that all too often those carefully planned great lengths just couldn’t become real. Life was then and continues to be extraordinarily difficult if its truth must be hidden. And in the hiding we live on separate islands yearning for something beyond a lonely paradise.
