  1. there was in those daze, nothing better than to See Ms. Nyro, surrey on to the stage, move her hair, touch the rose, the silence, then the moment.

  2. Laura Nyro: A truly Beautiful Lady, who wrote, sang, and played, straight from her Soul, some of the most amazing music this world has ever known. How I wish I could have been there for her, but alas, as a kid, I was completely clueless, only knowing the cover versions of her awesome songs, and the songs of other Artists who were influenced by her - they were all played heavily on the radio, while Laura herself remained the music industry's best kept secret. I know better now, and I hope that somewhere out in the Heavens, Laura knows that her loyal Tribe is still growing.
