In response to the Post Daily Prompt: Teenage Idol
I’m from the Elvis Presley generation, but he just wasn’t my type, besides I never could stand rock n’roll music. I liked classical from the very beginning.
In my Junior High School, girls put photos of who they idolized on top of their notebooks under plastic for a cover.
As the cover of my notebook, I had the Time Magazine cover that had Leonard Bernstein (1918-1990) on it. I thought he was the most divine man I had ever seen. I was raised without a father, so I always went for older men who were also intellectuals, because I was intellectual.
Lenny wrote the music for Westside Story, still my all-time favorite musical.
