I have to admit, I am loving the 100-Word Song Challenge at My Blog Can Beat Up Your Blog. This week, after experiencing some unexpected snowfall, Lance and Leeroy have chosen “Route 66” as this week’s song. Here is my 100 word interpretation.
There was something charming in the way he pursued me. If my soul were a road map he would have traveled from one coast to the other exploring every nuance of the highway that led through the heart of my existence.
He stopped to admire the things he would see only on this road. He fondly recalled the route that brought him to me, it was the road less traveled but the road that was meant for him to follow.
It is now a direction we pursue together, an open avenue to our future. It winds us into our reality.
Very entertaining and clever! 😀
Thank you! 🙂
WOW so beautiful, very mature thoughts !
Thank you so much.
Well done! I also have to admit to being a bit extra biased – I live in Needles, CA and it’s one of the many small towns that’s on Route 66. This city is trying hard to reinvent itself and part of that is embracing it’s Route 66 history and encourage tourism. As always, I love your writing. 🙂
Thank you so much. I live in a small tourist town as well, so I can understand your desire for the right type of attention. My best friend always wanted to drive Route 66 but she passed away in 2003. I still want to drive it some day in her honor.
That would be awesome! So many people do it. There are several parts of the roadway that can’t be driven anymore, but there are still good segments that can. It’s amazing how many people, NOT of U.S. decent, that want to travel this road. I think it’s cool and there’s certainly a lot of great history along that road. I hope you do get around to traveling Route 66. I’m sure it’s an interesting experience to say the least. May I just make the one suggestion that if you’re going to travel during the summer, you may consider starting in California lol. Needles can reach unbearable temperatures of around 120 or higher during the summer months. Just a thought. 🙂
Thanks for the tip….much appreciated!! I do hope I can do it some day. 🙂
Love as road trip.
Thank you so much! 🙂
I like the rhythm of this. There’s charm in that opening line, all pun intended. And that last line is perfect. More of this please.
Thanks so much Lance. I’m really enjoying these challenges. 🙂
This was a sweet description of love, and the perfect metaphor for his prompt.
Thank you so much!
nicely done. Helps us right into their psyche.
This looks fun and I’m a big music lover. I might have to join the party.
I’m sorry, I meant to also add that I enjoyed your writing and how you interpreted the song. I hit post too fast!
Haha….thank you very much. 🙂
Please do….I’m sure Lance would love more participants….and it really is fun!
