 Late Night Music

 

Sometimes the music says it all;

Your loved ones need to know your heart.

Sometimes the music says it all;

The love you feel must play its part.

 

Guitar and voice share harmony,

As Mystery shows a common way

And hearts, once lonely, sing in tune

As time, suspended, has its say.

 

The sounds of feeling matter here;

Transcendent forces take control

And lift us to a higher sphere,

Where life is full, complete and whole.

 

I ponder what it means to me

To share a melody with you.

Songs take us where we want to be

And there we know the love is true!

 

Sometimes the music says it all;

Your loved ones need to know your heart.

Sometimes the music says it all;

The love you feel must play its part.

John, The Great . . .

After living for a quarter-century mostly in Southwest Florida, John moved to the Greater Raleigh area in the mid 1970s. It was about that time that he first encountered the humor of The Great (Art) Metrano. Needing an act for a local talent show, John decided that he could do magic like few had never seen and The Great Immaculate Perception was born.

 

John’s livelihood has come from various occupations, ranging from his first job as a bottle sorter at the local bottling plant to his present position as a Purchasing Agent for a Liberal Arts College. In conjunction with his employment, John earned a Master of Divinity with Religious Education and a Master of Science in Technical Communication. His ambition is to “retire” into a “career,” basically ending at the beginning, which is the way John likes to manage most things.

 

John’s primary interest is his life partner (and #1 fan), Diane McDaniel, who is also from Florida and North Carolina, via Virginia. Both are members of the Unity Church of the Triangle in Raleigh and participate together by singing in the choir, attending and teaching classes and participating in various service projects and programs. Their mutual interest is in creating fun and happiness for themselves and others.
