    I Always Knew ... Rod Mckuen

    Sorry, It's a Question

    I don't know where to search: in the late 60's I read a Rod McKuen poem in a magazine. I believe the title was simply "Loving", but am not positive. The only lines I remember are " how much safer to want then to need, people don't expect so much from you then' [sic...

    It Really Wasn't 45 Years Ago, Was It?

    Why do we think the good old days were the best? Because they made the memories for us to smile about as we age.  I owned every book and album (and still have them) that Rod ever wrote. I played them non-stop in college (much to the chagrin of my dorm-mates). I had the...
