to the gypsy…
when i was a little girl, i used to dress up in my mom’s long skirts and scarves in my long hair and jangley jewelry and spin round and round. i pretended i was stevie nicks. that may sound like a strange aspiration for a little girl, but to me it made perfect sense. i grew up in a house where all kinds of music was not just played, but revered. young stevie on my mom’s album covers and tapes fascinated me. she was beautiful and witchy and ethereal and creative free spirit. and that magical voice. haunting and powerful, sweet and fragile. as i got older, i saw her in different terms, deeply emotional and troubled and flawed, but a survivor who wrote it all down.
happy birthday to my very own rock goddess. when i was a little girl i wanted to be stevie nicks and i still do.
