Even in this state of shutdown though, my muse found a way to inspire me. My inability to do a great deal physically and mentally led me to do one thing more - listen. I listened to my children talking, my husband's worries, the sounds outside the house, the news on TV and specifically to the music on the radio.
One song in particular grabbed my attention because it's lyrics beautifully matched the personality and life of a character in the novel I'm writing. This in turn got me thinking about songs that could represent other characters too. I'll tell you about those others later this week but for today, I thought I would share Isabelle's song with you. Putting aside the Banana Splits video, Paradise by Coldplay is perfect for this strong woman who has lost so much and yet still strives to keep life normal for her daughter.
