Sting’s birthday is today, October 2nd. Each year I take the time to offer my best wishes in thanks for the music he has shared with the world.
Happy birthday Sting!
Sting is my muse and has been since 1980 when I first heard his unique voice and music on a vinyl record (remember those?). His artistry and songwriting are the inspiration behind my own writing (since I can’t sing or play an instrument). If my novel included a soundtrack, it would play from Sting’s vast catalog of songs, and I’d like to share a special one in honor of his birthday.
This breathtaking song moves me every time with its striking intro, poetic lyrics, gorgeous arrangement, and the imagery and mood evoked while connecting relationships broken and mended to the cycle of the seasons. Enjoy this stunning live rendition of “I Was Brought To My Senses” by Sting, from which I’ve respectfully borrowed the title of my book.
