She may beg and she may plead and she may argue with her logic/Mention all the things I’ll lose that really have no value/Tho’ I doubt that she will ever come to understand my meaning/In the end she’ll surely know I wasn't born to follow. Wasn't Born To Follow. GOFFIN & KING.
The legendary Carole King is over in the UK at the minute promoting her Tapestry: The Legacy Edition release. I remember that record was never far away from my turntable in the early 1970s - along with James Taylor's Sweet Baby James, John Lennon's Imagine and Simon & Garfunkel's Bridge Over Troubled Water.
Yeah, I know, maverick bolshie bloggers that we are, we 'wasn't born to follow', right? Nevertheless -I finally got round to putting up the 'Followers' widget on my blog.
So I suppose that's OK, then. Blogs is different. You know they are! We can now follow (at least a little bit). Without a trace of guilt or the tiniest compromise to our rebellious individualism!
I'm quite overwhelmed by the steady stream of visitors to my blog - both the one-offs and occasionals, and the loyal core who come back time and again. Thanks so much for reading - and commenting. I do appreciate it.
