Just coming back to read this again and I must say “A Considered Opinion” is an apt name for you! Consistency is a quiet thing, but many people strive for it, and perhaps connect with it, without being able to put a finger on exact what “it” is. I loved Tom because of the memories that his music played in my mind. And how would I have made those memories if he hadn’t continued to make music decade after decade that I could listen to in every season of my life? He lived so much life in such a short time and I think all of us look up to that magical ability of his. Thank you for your considered opinion and for taking the time to make our memories of Tom richer.
