Winter Season by Natasha Borzilova
This is a song based on a conversation I had with my grandmother years ago. Her entire life she was a daredevil; a regional steeple chase champion as a teen, she trained to be a nurse at the onset of WWII which among other things included a series of parachute dives, in her early twenties she became a school principal and later worked with troubled youth. Once she said to me, "When I think of myself, I imagine a young woman, because in my heart I'm still the same person. Then I look in the mirror and see an old face I don't recognize." Grandma passed away from complications due to Alzheimer's disease. Sometimes I like to imagine her in her true form, skydiving in Heaven.
