The Songs That Flew Away, Singer Songwriter Patti Wood .


Most of the people that read this blog know  I am a body language Expert, and don't know I am also a singer-songwriter.  Recently I was at a songwriting session and I played three of my new songs in my session with Eliot Bronson. Filled with joy, I put on my jacket, picked up my guitar, my purse, my big song notebook with all my songs (the most precious pages with handwritten changes and musical notes) I hugged Eliot and another friend and went out to the car. I put my notebook on top of the trunk, the guitar in the back seat, put my purse on the front seat and drove home.
Notice anything amiss? I left the notebook on the car trunk. Today 24 hours later I went back and someone had lovingly found some of my songs in the street and dropped them off at the music school. I  hugged them to my chest. Wistful for all that I’d lost, all my original versions of two and half years of songwriting.
I started to drive home, more than a block away I spotted some white on the road. I stopped my car got out to find two of my songs in the intersection. I walked the streets for two blocks the wind blowing and found songs stuck in bushes, underneath cars, apartment complex driveways, on a construction site, and underneath large orange cones. Some flew up high in the air and back and forth across a major road with me chasing them. 
The good news is I found three songs with the musical notes! 
Tiretracted imprinted, my songs literally driven over but still kicking. 
I am so grateful. And from now on, when I drive down the street and see a stray piece of paper I will wonder if it’s a song that flew away.
