Joan Of Arc (Maid of Orleans)



In 2006, when I had just started writing again, my girlfriend at the time made me sit down on a weekend evening much like this one, and listen to a song (she had made sure) I had never heard before. She said, that's you, you're Joan.

Sometimes when i feel down, I still like to listen to it. I like knowing that somebody thought I was Joan.

We dont just think you're Joan, Shay - we KNOW it! You think outside the box, like she did. You slay dragons with your pen - you go where no one has gone before - and, when we read your poems, the tops of OUR heads blow off!!!!!

Well, I was going to say something amazing which basically boils down to , "I agree."

But then Sherry posted before me and now all I can say is, "What she said!"

You ARE Joan.

and I am Marco Polo. (Read my post to understand that one :)

Joan of Arc is a bit of a thankless role, my dear, but I can understand why you might be a natural for that...have you heard the Leonard Cohen song about her?

Due to unfortunate associations, I can't bear OMD.
