lilSeldin-Front-Cover-CClick Here to Purchase:  Below the Line in Beijing by Richard Seldin on IPBooks.net

Below the Line in Beijing is a provocative exploration of love, psychoanalysis, dissociative mental states and male sexuality. Without apparent cause, the novel’s protagonist, a 61 year-old attorney and former track star, awakens next to his wife in his Baltimore home unable to speak.  He questions whether his sudden muteness is due to loss of sexual desire for his wife, but this isn’t new. For several years, he’s been undergoing a second psychoanalysis to understand his physical indifference to her as well as powerful fantasies about hooking-up with young women.  These fantasies have intensified following the appearance of Jim, his alter ego.

Lyrical Tuesday from Jane Hall: Stardust

Posted February 9th, 2016 by Tamar Schwartz
Categories: Lyrical Tuesdays

“Stardust” is an American popular song composed in 1927 by Hoagy Carmichael with lyrics added in 1929 by Mitchell Parish. Carmichael first recorded the song, originally titled “Star Dust”, at the Gennett Records studio in Richmond, Indiana. The song, “a song about a song about love”,[1] played in an idiosyncratic melody in medium tempo, became an American standard, and is one of the most recorded songs of the 20th century, with over 1,500 total recordings.[2] In 2004, Carmichael’s original 1927 recording of the song was one of 50 recordings chosen by the Library of Congress to be added to the National Recording Registry. “Stardust” is considered by many the finest song ever written.

“Stardust”
And now the purple dusk of twilight time
Steals across the meadows of my heart
High up in the sky the little stars climb
Always reminding me that we’re apart
You wander down the lane and far away
Leaving me a song that will not die
Love is now the stardust of yesterday
The music of the years gone by
Sometimes I wonder why I spend
The lonely night dreaming of a song
The melody haunts my reverie
And I am once again with you
When our love was new
And each kiss an inspiration
But that was long ago
Now my consolation
Is in the stardust of a song
Beside a garden wall
When stars are bright
You are in my arms
The nightingale tells his fairy tale
A paradise where roses bloom
Though I dream in vain
In my heart it will remain
My stardust melody
The memory of love’s refrain
