  The Stimulus.
Lover Man - Billie Holiday

[I don’t know why but I’m feeling so sad
I long to try something I never had
Never had no kissin’
Oh, what I’ve been missin’
Lover man, oh, where can you be?

The night is cold and I’m so alone
I’d give my soul just to call you my own
Got a moon above me
But no one to love me
Lover man, oh, where can you be?

I’ve heard it said
That the thrill of romance
Can be like a heavenly dream
I go to bed with a prayer
That you’ll make love to me
Strange as it seems

Someday we’ll meet
And you’ll dry all my tears
Then whisper sweet
Little things in my ear
Hugging and a-kissing
Oh, what I’ve been missing

Lover man, oh, where can you be?]

The Response:

Awareness of love and belief in fairy tales.
Loss of logic and revitalization of raw emotion.
Pining after the intangible.
Intolerable levels of hope.

Billie Holiday will mess a girl up.
Indeed she will. And Nina Simone will drive a girl to drink....

Hi, Mom.
