I am reflecting on three songs that were significant in my life. Only three?! Songs have nourished my soul, sustained my broken heart and have kept me alive. The first would have to be Live To Tell by Madonna. I first heard this song when I was on the brink of adolescence. “Hope I live to tell the secret I have learned, ’til then, it will burn inside of me.’ It certainly did, and I did live to tell, which is why I named my book after this song. At the time, it was a whisper of hope, that I may survive. At my book launch, some dear friends presented me with a music box which plays Lived to Tell. True Colours by Cyndi Lauper  has to be included. I love this song’s imagery. I have always been  a colourful character, and felt out of place in the world. I had no idea where I belonged. This song provided me with comfort, and allowed me to believe  in the power of my wild imagery and dreams. Precious Little Angel by Annie Lennox is my third choice. I listened to this song for over a decade, and it sums up why I was determined to have the little girl I kept seeing in my dreams. When I was without hope in my infertility, I leant on this song. When I went into labour, and was in the car on the way to hospital, what song should play as the radio came on? This one.
