My Portland Town
My native Portland Oregon USA
The song “Portland Town” is covered in this version by a brand new artist to me. Actually the song is new to me too.
Having a very good friend who knows me musically, like no one else in my life knows me, sent it to me today.
I am always touched deeply when loved ones & friends share music with me that they know will be meaningful to me. I see it as a way that is very telling to me that they care. About me.
Nothing says “I love You” to me louder than being sent a song that hits close to home.
This song “Portland Town” by artist Cara Luft does all of that; and then some.
Why this song is meaningful to me.
It came to me today from someone who loves me like no other. In fact just writing those words brings tears to my eyes and tugs at my heart-strings.
I was born in Portland Oregon which like many of my native fellow Oregonians affectionately call P-Town for short.
And my youngest daughter‘s (also born in P-Town) middle name is Cara.
Yeah.. I tend to find symbolism’s in many things when it relates to music.
Did I say I love banjo music too?
Of course I love it. Does It not have strings and a fret board?
I hope you enjoy this weeks Happy Acoustic Saturday.. albeit late in coming. ~
