One of my favorite songs from 2007, that came up in the iTunes shuffle today. Fitting and perfect for this consecutive rainy day in the office. I remember stumbling upon this, as bonus songs from Corinne’s debut album, and it was around the time I began editing Blue Lines again.
It actually paints the perfect picture of two broke college kids, escaping from the confines of their campus, and hiding out together on a rainy day. He and she, her and him, etc, etc, etc…
Anyway, I KNOW where I need to be right now, listening to this on a rainy day. Need some simple, if just for a day.
The manuscript Blue Lines is the fictional coming of age narrative of a young California woman Key Yemaya Walker, and her 2 year growing journey through school, love, and life period piece, written by Kenneth Suffern, Jr., taking place at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill between the years of 1997 – 1998. Loosely based on true events, and experiences during that time, told through the eyes and voice of the main female protagonist, a freshman first attending the school.
